Malaysian consumers may not have a lot to cheer about these days, as the onset of GST in less than two days painting a gloomy picture for all of us. However, there is something to be happy about, and it’s from an unlikely source: the “necessary evils” that are our local telcos.
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.
We all know that the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge will be coming to Malaysia, but will local telcos be offering both devices? Celcom and Maxis have already started teasing the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, so if this is the smartphone you’ve waited all year for, get your wallets ready.
The new U Mobile iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus bundles does indeed look very promising. Its new iPlans offers the cheapest option in the market starting from RM40 a month, and comes with plenty of data, suitable for today’s users. But how do the new plans stack up against the big 3 telcos who have been offering the iPhone for many years now? Check out our price comparison after the break.
Malaysia’s LTE networks are on average, faster than the US and even Japan, but its coverage is one of the worst in the world, according to a report by OpenSignal. The company behind the OpenSignal app released the report based data taken from 11 million users of the app, from 29 countries.
Due to some complications, we’ve decided to extend the contest period. Do feel free to join and invite your friends to join too!
But wait, you don’t have to pay a single sen to own one. The generous folks at Celcom are giving away two units of the BlackBerry Classic to Lowyat.NET readers, and you might be one of the lucky winners.
