KUALA LUMPUR: The Johor Baru Internet Exchange (JBIX), the latest Internet Exchange Point offering in Malaysia, set for launch on Sept 3, anticipates overall pricing for telecommunications services to be slightly higher.
JBIX chief peering officer Weng Yew Wong said this is because equipment purchases, which is part of the providers’ service, would be at a higher cost.
“We are monitoring the guidelines from the Royal Malaysian Customs Department and we are still discussing with them as to which services that we provide fall under taxable services.
“As we provide mainly telecommunications and information technology services, we fall under the Service Tax Act, as opposed to the Sales Tax Act,” he told Bernama. — Bernama
