YTL Comms CEO optimistic of breaking even, declines to say when Plans to launch LTE in near future, Samsung the expected vendor
Red Hat Inc has announced the completion of its collaboration with telecommunication service provider YTL Communications to deliver what it described as a scalable, cost-effective cloud platform for e-learning in schools.
It was a week of telco tales, writes Karamjit Singh: A new MVNO launched by an MVNA; Maxis’ new CEO declining his role due to personal reasons; a telco that is actually an Internet company; and the big momma of them all seeing data and Internet revenue overtaking voice.
Until YTL Comms landed the 1BestariNet project last year from the Ministry of Education, it was looking like the company would struggle to fulfil the grandiose promise laid out by its executive chairman Francis Yeoh, writes Karamjit Singh.
Maxis has rolled out its eKelas online learning service to all 2,300 public secondary schools in the country, but the Ministry of Education did not provide any clarity on how this initiative plays alongside the similar national 1BestariNet project.
YTL Comms introduces Chromebooks into 1BestariNet, with ‘first contract’ for 3,000 schools to get 41 Chromebooks each.
