tollebunsmithTHis is the worst one in my portfolio ansd the most heavy of all my stock ( in terms of value) and also loss wise.
JunichiroThis is probably a sign of not much foreign buying. Newspapers n analyst make everybody think there is a big flow of foreign funds into KLSE. The reality is otherwise.
noshYeah, I am heavily invested in it but the Telco game, I have come to learn it the hard way, is a game of regulators. All these Telco counters are at the mercy of the regulators and the government...
tollebunsmithIsnt there suppose to be a end of month window dressing today?
TF PeterBudget - ecpectation - on the watch tis month.
tollebunsmithDigi will pay RM598.55 million for its 2x5MHz of 900MHz and 2x20MHz of 1,800MHz bands. This was on top of RM51.48 million in annual maintenance fee over the 15 years Read More : http://www.nst.com.my/news/2016/08/169524/rm51b-spectrum-bill-3-telcos Guess the price will go down tomorrow.
JunichiroProbably telcos would price their products higher instead of cheap packages now that all these fees are taking a huge slice of their profits. I expect them to cut dividends also to avoid over-borrowing.
tollebunsmithProbsbly pass thru the price to the consumers. I think they (the telcos) will work together on this one , so overall each single telco wont lose , so subscribers cant jump ship, hence telco ALL wins!
tollebunsmithPublished on: Friday, September 02, 2016 Kuala Lumpur: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) announced the spectrum reallocation pricing in the 900MHZ & 1,800MHZ spectrum. In a statement, MCMC chairman Datuk Seri Dr Halim Shafie said the two bands of spectrum are being assigned for a fee to Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile for a period of 15 years. Halim said this is also in line with the government's decision to optimise the use of spectrum resources.
"A study was conducted and the fee determined per block of 2x5MHz in each band, 900MHz and 1,800MHz," he said.
The 2x5MHz block in the 900MHz band will cost RM499.725 million and the 2x5MHz block in the 1,800MHz band, RM217.77 million.
The total fee payable by each player will depend on the amount of spectrum allocated to them in these bands.
He went on to explain that to ensure costs are not passed down to subscribers, it is a condition of the allocation that players should offer packages that are cheaper than current prices.
Halim said the same approach in spectrum optimisation would also be used for all other relevant spectrum bands such as the 700MHz, 2,300MHz and 2,600Mhz.
Meanwhile, U Mobile Sdn Bhd has received a Letter of Offer from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission, dated Aug 30, 2016, for the allocation of 2x5MHz of 900MHz and 2x15MHz of 1800MHz bands, effective July 1, 2017.
In a statement Thursday, U Mobile said the acceptance deadline for the offer letter is the same for other telecommunication companies.
"The spectrum fee consists of price component of RM503,406,000 and an annual fee component of RM43,305,000," it said. – Bernama
