Malaysia Operators, I like it!

Everyday tune into radio, open newspaper, walk around, everywhere are advertisement of Maxis, Digi, and Celcom. Their slogans are: I am the lowest; I don't have hidden charge; I am nationwide rate... Which one is the lowest? I don't care la, as I am Maxis postpaid user, hehe.

Recently, Digi said their prepaid provide 36 cents nationwide, provided when the user spent RM30 and above.

Maxis Hotlink fight back with 36 cents without any spending limit.

Celcom, who is always the last action taker, released their latest plan--35 cents nationwide!

1 cent cheaper
Celcom is 1 cent cheaper than the other 2 operators, but can that changes influence the whole market seriously? Em, If Maxis and Digi did that, maybe, but Celcom...  Whatever, you all quarrel, consumers earn.

Currently, I been to 3 states: Penang(my hometown), Melaka,(my first year study in MMU), and Cyberjaya(my degree study in MMU), I notice most prepaid users are Hotlink, after a big gap, followed by Digi, and very less Celcom.

Last month, TM CEO came to our campus to give a leadership speech, and he late for 1 hour. We have a joke: To be a leader, one must be late, at least 1 hour, haha. When he ask how many users who use Hotlink, or Maxis, many people lift up their hand, then Digi is also quite a number, but Celcom, which is TM product, have the less users... So embarrassing...

But if Streamyx has a strong competitor like Digi and Hotlink, that is cool, we will have more choices and the end consumer get benefits. Until today, I still don't understand why government don't give 3G license to Digi, while the other side said: We must improve our ICT industry! Bullshit!
