The industry is hoping that Gobind Singh Deo, the new Communications and Multimedia Minister, will relook at the way spectrum is awarded, so that only those who can pay for the spectrum and deliver the services should be entitled to use it. His move will be watched as that will determine how future spectrum allocations are made. Up for grabs next is the 2600MHz band.

PUTRAJAYA: Fixed broadband prices in Malaysia are expected to drop by at least 25% by year’s end.

Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo (pic) said this followed the implementation of the Mandatory Standard on Access Pricing (MSAP) that was enforced beginning June 8.
