1. Come August, Tune Talk will be two years old. What would you say is its biggest achievement? Nelson, Ipoh

Our biggest achievement is that we're actually still here! This is an incredibly tough market, saturated at over 112% and we have also experienced anti-competitive behaviour from the bigger boys who try to prevent dealers from selling our SIM cards and top-ups by threatening to cut off their dealerships. It's sometimes a dirty game and we have asked Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to intervene. It's also incredibly difficult to establish a new telecom brand in Malaysia. It doesn't exactly happen overnight and it takes constant communication of our core values and product features as there is so much confusion in this market.
