    Shame on you Youth Communication Package, spend the money on something more tangible

    300Mil?! Diu lo like that.. “Do re mi” is right! We need cheaper houses instead! Plus, RM 200 discount on RM 500 phones are pretty pointless anyway, one can get 2nd hand phones for better value..

  • yowayowa

    Not that I am not grateful for the RM200 rebate but the ceiling price is just ridiculous.

    The justification for this rebate is already lame enough. They are giving money for only youths to buy smartphones instead of EVERYONE (maybe not kids under 16, what do they need a smartphone for? Angry birds?) even though they claim they want to build a nation that is techno-savvy or whatever. I’m not even convinced.

    Now they impose a ceiling price to this deal and only pre-approved phones? People who would purchase a smartphone would not want a phone under RM500 as that would defeat the purpose of getting a smartphone in the first place. Smartphones below that price are bullshit.

    And most importantly, IS THIS NEWS EVEN GET REPORTED IN MAINSTREAM MEDIA? I did a little bit of searching and there is no mention of this ceiling price in thestar or the news. They hid it in the official site hoping the voters would not even notice it until it is too late. This is obviously just a ruse to get votes for their key demographic, the youth.


    Stupidest shit i ever heard of this year.

  • amad108

    this kind of people that manage our country?
    smartphone below rm500 can consider as child smartphone.. the spec is same with nokia N70.. yes if u can use that phone mikale just get it..

  • dafuq

    First impression:
    RM200 rebate for phones finally out! About time. January next year? I can wait!

    Second Impression:
    RM500 ceiling price? Bitch please

  • Guy Fawkes

    Really? Honestly 21 to 30 year old youths, the age range should be larger, although that would mean allowing non-voters *cough* to enjoy this.

    Also, instead of forcing people to take a broadband plan, Gov should get telco’s to introduce a special plan just for this “broadband penetration” initiative.

    Lastly, it’s reasonable to have set a price ceiling, logical to prevent those with high purchasing power to abuse this initiative by getting iPhone 5 or Galxy Note II, S3, but RM500 is just…. sad. Can buy only really low end Andriod phones, or China tech. I think it should be pushed to at least RM1000.

  • Bug

  • mia
