Telcos have until Sept 30 to submit proposals
KUALA LUMPUR: Telecommunications companies have until Sept 30 to submit proposals for new broadband packages to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), said
Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind
“I hope that after the proposals are submitted, we can implement them.
Bro adb and prices will drop and the speed will increase by the end of this year,” he said on Twitter yesterday.
Gobind said proposals were initially supposed to be submitted before Aug 31, but there were requests for it to be extended for two years.
“We rejected them. The extension is only until Sept 30. This is because the SST (Sales and Service Tax) was implemented on Sept 1 and there was a need to resolve certain issues, such as prepaid reload cards. No more extension after this.”
