Nigeria will be implementing an interesting method for getting its local telcos to provide quality service; the country has announced that it will throw executives from non-performing telecommunications service providers in prison. It may sound a little extreme, but the government is saying that the local infrastructure has deteriorated too much and it has had enough of their excuses.
It’s the time of the year again, MCMC recently announced that it has issued our local telcos a total of 23 compounds amounting to RM1.01 million. The compounds have been issued to key local players like Digi, Maxis, Celcom, U Mobile, Tune Talk and XOX for dropped call issues and improper registration for prepaid users.
Frustrated with SMS that tells you you’ve been charged a certain amount of money for a service that you didn’t subscribe to? It looks like Maxis will be taking action on such unscrupulous content providers. The telco has just suspended a company after receiving numerous complaints from users.
It looks like ChatSim, the €10 SIM card that gives you unlimited messaging around the world, is officially coming to Malaysia. Extrovest Group just announced that they have signed an agreement with Zeromobiles.r.l to be its sole distributor in Malaysia. This means that in the near future, you would be able to purchase a ChatSim from DirectD Retail & Wholesale Sdn. Bhd.
If you’ve always been frustrated with existing postpaid plans from local telcos because you never use up the data or free calls that are bundled, here’s something exciting for you from Digi. The telco has just revised its postpaid plans so whether you need more data or need more calls/SMS, there’s a plan for you.
