SHAH ALAM — DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd is waiting for the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), to make a concrete decision on the service tax for mobile prepaid services.
“To date, there has not been any concrete statement from the MCMC. We are basically waiting for it,” DiGi’s head of market operations and partnerships, Moharmustaqeem Mohammed said.
The decision to pass on the six per cent service tax to mobile prepaid users by telcos had been deferred from July 1 to Sept 1 after industry players met with the regulator.
Speaking to reporters after the launching of “Super Reload Social Promosi Impian Buddyz” here Wednesday, Moharmustaqeem said debates were still going on within the industry.
“If they say it goes we need to build plan towards it, if they say ‘no’ then it is status quo,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Super Reload Social Promosi Impian Buddyz is a special promotional offer targeted for the youth under its prepaid plan, Super Reload Social.
It offers exciting prizes, worth more than RM250,000 in a campaign running from Sept 8 to Dec 31, to lucky DiGi customers.
Three lucky customers would have the opportunity to go para-motoring with actress Lisa Surihani or get to be a rock star with Aizat or be a pilot for a day with actor, Shaheizy.
Moharmustaqeem said its prepaid plan, Super Reload Social has received encouraging response since its launch in June.
During this campaign customers who top-up would get RM15 worth of talktime credit, free 250 DiGi to DiGi SMS, 101 DiGi to MMS and 100 Facebook or Twitter SMS.
