MCMC urged to appoint 3G phone agents for youths
KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Mobile Phone Owners Association urged the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to appoint selected agents for the sale of original 3G smart phones to youths receiving the RM200 rebate.
The Association's president, Mohd Ali Ibrahim said here Sunday, that supply may be disrupted with an estimated 1.5 million users and distributors may take advantage of the situation by selling imitations and raising prices indiscriminately.
Welcoming the rebate, which was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in the 2013 Budget on Friday, he also suggested that MCMC and telecommunication companies should offer special 3G packages for the youths in order to control their monthly spending. - Bernama
