A million telco lines terminated


 PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has issued compounds worth over RM20mil to telecommunication service providers (telcos) for not verifying the identity of new prepaid card subscribers. The failure also saw over one million lines terminated by the telcos.

MCMC chief regulatory officer Zulkarnain Mohd Yasin told The Star that the commission discovered cases of telco agents or dealers who misused consumers’ personal information to register fake prepaid accounts for sale to other customers.
