Prepaid Subscriber Service Tax - Boycott Telcos for a Month

Firstly, the Govt's approval is not in the interest of the rakyat

Telcos are making huge amounts of profit from both prepaid and postpaid subscribers.

Just reported "the government may have finally decided to allow telecommunication companies (telcos) to pass on the 6% service tax to prepaid subscribers and "Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has issued a memo to be technically prepared for the launch on July 1".

If the telcos are going to pass on the service tax to the subscribers, let's do something about it.

On the month when the service tax is imposed, I call upon ALL existing prepaid users NOT to reload and ALL those wishing to buy a prepaid kit NOT to do so for a month.

It is a matter of principle and will to send a strong message to these avaricious telcos.
