The government should provide free data for the first 3 days of Hari Raya so that users can make video calls.
In a Facebook posting from former Prime Minister Najib Razak yesterday, He rebutted a statement from Minister of Communications and Multimedia Saifuddin Abdullah announcement that in conjunction with the Aidilfitri celebration, local telecommunication companies are providing free calls to all networks in the country from 10pm yesterday to 10am on 1st syawal
“Most plans already include unlimited calls.
“Many have also switched to video calls during the festive season.
“Therefore, I think it is more meaningful to also provide free data for the first three days of Hari Raya so that users can make video calls and also to encourage people to stay at home to avoid violating the government’s ban on road trips compared to the regular free call offer (which is) night only.
“Hopefully the Minister and the telcos that make billions reconsider this”
On Wednesday, Saifuddin said, the benefits operated by the Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) can be enjoyed by all customers of telecommunication company services.
