DNA editor Goh Thean Eu crunches the telco numbers, and comes up with a surprise or two.
Customers are the focus for banks and telcos when they talk about digital services, says Karamjit Singh.
The 4G war between Maxis and Digi is at an all-time-high, but Edwin Yapp isn’t impressed with it as he believes it’s mostly rhetoric, and largely pointless to customers.
DNA founder Karamjit Singh had extra fun on today’s Tech Talk segment on BFM as he disrupted Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs theory. Catch the podcast to hear his rationale for doing so.
Digi responded to Maxis’ callout to discuss 4G LTE claims by calling it a ‘social media gimmick,’ saying that its own main objective is to give consistent network coverage to its subscribers.
Digi started field tests on VoLTE, saying that the technology not only allows higher-fidelity voice calls, but will also allow customers to simultaneously surf the Web, download or stream content from the Internet at 4G LTE speeds while engaged on a voice call.
Maxis threw the 4G LTE gauntlet back at rival Digi, saying that it was the leader, even as it reported a 5% increase in revenue for its third quarter (Q3) 2015 which ended Sept 30.
U Mobile Sdn Bhd, Malaysia’s fourth largest mobile operator, may delay its initial public offering (IPO) plans because its journey to profitability has been prolonged by about one year, partly driven by changes in the competitive landscape.
Digi claims it now has the widest 4G LTE network in Malaysia, but what does this really mean to its users, given its limited spectrum, and how can it up the ante with its rival looking to swoop? Edwin Yapp has some ideas.
Malaysians lined up to purchase their the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus at the midnight launch events organised by the country's four main telecom carriers.
