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.
