Deadline for telcos to submit proposals

Gobind Singh Deo

KUALA LUMPUR: Telecommunications companies have until Sept 30 to submit proposals for the new broadband packages to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), said Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo.

“I hope that after the proposals are submitted, MCMC can implement them and broadband prices will drop and the speed will increase by the end of this year,” he said in a post on his official Twitter account yesterday.

Gobind Singh said the proposals were initially supposed to be submitted before Aug 31, but there were requests for it to be extended for two years.

“The extension is only until Sept 30. This is because the SST (Sales and Service Tax) was implemented on Sept 1 and there was a need to resolve certain issues such as prepaid reload cards first.

“No more extension after this,” he said. — Bernama
