Digi has rolled out a new forum, called the People Powered Hub, on its website.

A few weeks ago, we reported that local telco companies have generally agreed to lower down the prices for their broadband packages. However, the exact amount of price reduction was still under wraps until just a few hours ago through the official announcement by the Minister of Communications and Multimedia, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek.
According to the subsequent press statement from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the reduction applies to both fixed line and mobile broadband packages. That being said though, the reduction seems to be limited to entry-level broadband packages at the moment.

Malaysians woke up today with the new Goods and Services Tax (GST) applied to, well, basically almost everything. Despite that, there are still plenty of confusion among consumers: will this be more expensive after GST? Will that product’s price be the same after GST? Now that GST is finally upon us, we can finally lay to rest some of these concerns, especially with regards to the brands that are most relevant to you, our dear readers.
Yesterday, it was reported certain telcos have apparently defied the order from the Royal Malaysian Customs to not increase the prices of prepaid top ups after the implementation of GST. This has led to a meeting between local telco industry and Customs today to clarify the matter.
As it turns out, the amount that these telcos has charged yesterday was indeed correct according to the statement released by Communications and Multimedia Consumer Forum of Malaysia (CFM) which detailed the results of the meeting between both parties.
