Business Background

Time Dotcom Bhd is a telecommunications company that offers fixed-line and enterprise services, including data (broadband and wireless), voice, and data center services, where the majority of revenue comes from. The company divides its customer base into three segments: wholesale, retail, and enterprise. Retail and enterprise deal with households and companies, respectively. The wholesale segment provides backhaul services to Asia-Pacific and Malaysian telecommunication companies. This is enabled through the company's ownership of telecommunications infrastructure, specifically a fiber-optic cable network.

PiddleMinger yup, definitely overvalued. Time doesn't deserve their current PE multiple. It should be trading at a PE of 15 and below. The reduction of broadband prices will hurt them badly. I will only consider this at RM 4 and below.
25/06/2018 08:25
khoo890 Timecom's the cheapest high-speed broadband provider, no way they will not reduce speed from current 100Mbps to 50Mbps, just remain the price RM149 but increase the speed to 200MBS or 300Mbps, so will not affect earning in fact will be more attractive to customers and more revenue.
What the Minister said to reduce price and increase speed is about TM, their price is very expansive, Tm unify 10Mbps=RM129/month, 30Mbps=RM179/month,100Mbps=RM329/month.
26/06/2018 10:14
khoo890 Don't expect to buy a company with consistent earning and customers will keep increasing have a PE of 15.
26/06/2018 10:24
PiddleMinger the average internet user won't need 100mbps, let alone 200mbps. what they want is cheaper packages.

Time's earnings would be affected by the new ruling and the PE would surge even higher.
26/06/2018 15:25
jasonor 100 mbps or 200mbps not hv much difference if you just surf facebook, instagram, youtube. they need to create lower speed with lower price package for these casual users.
26/06/2018 15:35
omgimnoob Hahahaha nowadays investors are so smart!
26/06/2018 15:37
Jon Choivo You have clearly never used a 100mb+ line before.

khoo890 Yes some don't even need internet. Some will do with 10 Mbps. But they are many like me who enjoy 100Mbps as home user. That's why Timecom customer base keep increasing, many have switch from TM to Timecom is because they want/enjoy high-speed internet. Even for Business company, Timecom also is the cheapest.
26/06/2018 17:36
khoo890 Timecom are target for customer who like to want High-speed broadband, otherwise many people will not switch form 5 or 10 Mbps to 100Mbps.
Existing broadband of 10Mbps is struggling to support the increasing number of Internet-capable devices in the home, which include:
• mobile phones
• iPads and tablets
• notebooks
• e-readers
• desktop PCs
• games consoles
• Apple TV and media players
• CCTV live view
• Cloud
All these devices will be competing for the same limited bandwidth, and basic broadband services with slow speeds will increasingly become a major bottleneck. With growing families, where there is a significant number of people in a household, basic broadband is no longer enough!
26/06/2018 17:37
khoo890 iPlayer requires at least 3Mbps to stream HD content, and Netflix can demand 6Mbps or more to stream high-quality video. Online backups of important content, such as family photographs, can be unbearably slow with conventional broadband. Without superfast broadband, consumers have an increasingly reduced set of online services to choose from.
Homeworking potentially allows many people to achieve a better work-life balance, particularly parents with young children. However, conventional broadband services may not permit reliable access to business systems or allow employees to communicate effectively with colleagues or customers through video conferencing, for example.
We have all experienced waiting for several seconds or even minutes for a page to load. The annoyance of waiting certainly diminishes when you opt for a faster internet connection. We all love opening multiple tabs in our browsers but this will drastically increase the page loading time if you have a slow connection
26/06/2018 17:38
khoo890 Reason why some people need high speed internet:

1: Flawless video streaming: With the rise of online streaming websites like YouTube, Vimeo etc. people are switching to the internet for their daily dose of entertainment rather than cable television. With big screen HD TV, some like to enjoy flawless 4K videos online only if you’ve a high speed internet connection. Otherwise you will end up stuck with the annoying buffering message that will leave you all high and dry. Nowadays, several live sporting events are streamed online and it’s impossible to view the event if on a slow connection. High-definition video is far superior to standard-definition – the picture is much clearer and more detailed. However, HD files are bigger than standard-definition ones, so opting to watch in high definition needs faster speed. Opting for faster broadband means you can stream at a higher rate, so you can enjoy amazing picture quality.

2: Multiple Users: Multiple family members can enjoy the internet uninterrupted if you have high speed plan, otherwise it may end up being terribly slow and neither of you’ll be able to browse the net. Want to stream an HD movie in the front room while your son or daughter plays Xbox Live in their bedroom – and even have someone taking a video call at the same time? Superfast broadband allows you to get a better experience when running more than one bandwidth-hungry application at the same time.

3: Good for businesses: A slow connection can be disastrous for any body doing business at home, especially if it specializes in the IT sector. One can lose clients with the slightest error in broadband functioning and spell doom for the whole company and leave several employees out of jobs. A high speed broadband on the other hand keeps the organization ahead of its competitors and is a true contender in the business race. High speed internet results in improved efficiency and is a great revenue generator for the organization.We even get told why it's very important to have high speed broadband, possibly even ultra speed broadband, everywhere:With the number of screens per household increasing, watching television is becoming an increasingly solitary activity. Even with a 100Mbps connection, a Blu-ray quality film takes 13 minutes to download. BT's top-tier broadband services can cope with streaming several high-definition channels at once, but ultrahigh definition is on its way. The Japanese state broadcaster NHK will use it To record the London Olympics, with public screenings promised, and speeds of 100 to 200 Mbps are needed to transmit a single channel.

4: Faster web browsing: It can be incredibly frustrating waiting for internet pages to appear – and those with lots of photos and video can often take a few seconds to completely download. With faster broadband, image-heavy pages load more quickly, allowing you to quickly get the information you want.

5: Gaming: Many gamers play Xbox Live or PlayStation Live, which involves real-time battles with people around the world. Ask any gamer and they’ll say fast broadband is essential for smoother gaming with less buffering, a split second can mean life or death in a shootout such as Call of Duty.
6: Video calls: Video services such as Skype are a great way to keep in touch with relatives around the world. Faster broadband means less time waiting to connect and a smoother connection while you’re chatting, with less chance of the picture dropping out.

7: Backing up documents
Most of us document our lives these days with photos and videos – so it’s really important to back up your digital files. Cloud services such as BT Cloud are an easy solution – backing them up via wi-fi – and faster broadband speeds means you can upload these files quickly.

Jon Choivo You think the average internet user is some makcik who dont know how to youtube?

Even my parents now start to netflix and youtube. 1080p movies need 8mb to 12 mb per second. 4k needs 45-80mb per second.

And if its a family, even more. Not even count torrent.

This is one of those scenarios where the demand will grow to fill the supply. Imagine those people who keep terabytes of data in the cloud.

Yeah, would suck if the price of the stock drops. Its 26% of my portfolio. But that would also present an invaluable chance to buy more.

Im waiting for RM6.

When MCMC wanted to implement Mandatory Standard on Access Pricing (MSAP), it was TM who complained, not timecom.

Double the speed? Timecom is 10 times the speed of TM at the same price.

Using Pakatan Manifesto, double the speed at half the price. Assume TM force to ikut bulat bulat, that is 20MB at RM75 (Cheapest TM plan now 10MB, RM149). That means, 100MB at RM375!

Timecom is 60% cheaper already, compared to TM. Even when compare to TM most expensive plan, 100MB, RM329. Timecom is still 55% cheaper.

The sheer cheapness of Timecom's service means, they wont be affected. That's margin of safety for you.

Best product for the lowest price.

26/06/2018 17:53
PiddleMinger yes, captain obvious. Time's package is definitely the cheapest when you compare price per mbps. But dont u think many would subscribe to TM if they offer a low price package eg RM 75 for 20mbps?

The average user would use the internet for surfing, fb and maybe some youtube. Not for HD streaming, gaming, etc. And you've not considered the competition from other telcos. Time is not cheap currently. I'll be keeping this in my watchlist.
26/06/2018 18:16
Jon Choivo https://klse.i3investor.com/blogs/PilosopoCapital/142735.jsp

I did, a long time ago. Unlike you, i do my research properly.

If i sell wagyu beef for RM20, sure alot will want also lah. Problem is, can TM afford to? Their margin only 7.7%.

If you can afford to stay in a condo that have TIMECOM, am i going to stinge on the internet, when i can have 5 times the speed at just double the price?

How about you try using 100mb per sec for a week, and then try to go back to TM. :)

In addition, its not a matter of if you want to buy TIME, its if TIME wants to sell to you. They go where the demand for their product is the highest, ie condo's.

You need to request for your area to have TIME, and if the request is high enough, only they will connect. That's how high the demand is.

26/06/2018 18:57
khoo890 Yes Jon you are right, TM each year(for past 5 years) earn very high revenue & very high Gross Margin but their Net Profit Margin only average at 7% or less, whereas Timecom have lesser Gross Margin than TM but still consider very high Gross Margin at 52%(for past 5 years), their Net Profit Margin are more than 25%+. That's why I said don't expect to buy a company with huge cash flow, consistent earning and high profit margin at low PE.

With high speed internet + Android TV/TV Box, some don't need Astro anymore, even Astro On Demand also require you to have high-speed internet. Those who have use and enjoy100Mbps will not go back to 10 or 20 mbps even pay less money. Some time 100Mbps is just cukup cukup for me when my wife watching HD movie, my son watching HD youtube video and I on my Desktop & Laptop with over 20 tab of web pages open and some upload/downloading.

Like Jon mentioned, I have many friends and relatives also want to change to Timecom but their area still under waiting list.

5 Mbps/10mbps will be history soon if Government start to implement high-speed with reduce price, Timecom still will be the winner.

But they've the means to buy back even lower. Wouldn't be too concerned what epf is doing. TM looks like a bargain compared to Time.
28/06/2018 11:05
Jon Choivo Its easy to say that with derision. But if that were true, they would have given negative dividends by now, that is clearly not the case.

In addition, do note that EPF also lets other run parts of its funds. So its not necessarily purchased by EPF per say.

06/07/2018 19:36
KKKS As you can see EPF & KWAP has been acquiring earlier and disposing lately.. From the Annual Report, khazanah directly owns 11% of the company and indirectly-30%(i could be wrong)... Since TM will drop their broadband price further and how would TDC able to react?.. Long term will they willing to drop their 100Mbps package below RM100? And furthermore MCMC is in the picture to regulate further on the infra regulation? who knows...That is the question..
06/07/2018 20:10
KKKS If there is a change in khazanah direction. Will TDC have the same impact?

12/07/2018 16:30
Outliar Which plan are you referring to? RM79 for 60GB?
12/07/2018 16:32
PiddleMinger Unifi plans have been upgraded. 30Mbps upgraded to 300 Mbps, those 20 Mbps&below upgraded to 100 Mbps.
12/07/2018 17:30
Hoi App time pls go back la... sure lose to tm... rent a fixed line from tm still want compete tm?
14/07/2018 12:18
Jon Choivo Time does not rent a fixed line, they built their own line.

The upgrades are a plan, and plans take time to execute. Timecom first spoke about doing high speed fibre on 2010. Only in 2013 did the core fibre backbone.

You want to 10x the speed? if TM could do it previously, they would have, but they couldn't.

Having said that TM, looks ok-ish given the fall in price..
14/07/2018 19:12

Hoi App Update:

For Streamyx users, some 340,000 existing customers (within Unifi coverage) will be encouraged to upgrade to Unifi.

Another 350,000 Streamyx customers who are not within Unifi coverage areas are targeted to enjoy double speed upgrade.

TM has close to 1 million #Streamyx customers at the moment.
17/07/2018 23:17
hollandking ok for whatever package TM will be offering u guys, make sure you ask them, what will happened to your phone line. There are some who don't care, some will, bcoz with from what i understand, there are streamyx package that have free local and national call, meaning u can call as much as you want provided is land line connect to land line and not to mobile phone.

Ask
any data quota,
what is the speed,
pricing double confirmed down, same or up.
any charges.
17/07/2018 23:47
PiddleMinger The price war between the telcos only benefit the customers. If Time doesnt adjust their package, they will face a tough time growing their customer base. As it is, they don't have penetration to landed homes. Their earnings will take a hit.

Hoi App time rent infras from tm to do business.
imagine one day tm dont rent it... time will have today share price?
time are over value now.
18/07/2018 20:47
Jon Choivo I must say, i wonder how the hell is TM going to meet its promise to 10X the speed without increasing the price.

If they could do it all the while, why didn't they do it before. What is the cost they are going to incur?

I wonder what TIMECOM's reply will be. I'm waiting for that one.

Let me say it again, clearly, TIME DOES NOT RENT ANY INFRA FROM TM. They have their own.
18/07/2018 21:54

Jibbie, small issue, ESOS basically
18/07/2018 23:18

Im willing to share about this company as the stock is really not cheap to begin with. Right now, it is at best, slightly below fair value. But its long term prospects and moat is fantastic.
18/07/2018 23:24
apolloang why time still RM 149 for 100mb? should lower to RM 79 to attract more customers
18/07/2018 23:27
Jon Choivo They have all the customers they need. Its the supply that's the problem, not demand.

Retail grew 85% YOY.
