Malaysian mobile operators competiting on foreign workers market

Yesterday, Celcom launched its "Celcom Prabayar Sukses", a prepaid plan that is specially made for the Indonesian foreign worker segment.

Sukses customers can call XL subscribers for as low as 35 sen. More than 50 per cent cheaper than what Hotlink and DiGi are offering.

Its CEO Datuk Seri Shazalli Ramly believes the new plan is the answer to overtake DiGi.Com, which he believes is the current market leader in terms of IDD market. Celcom is currently in third place, behind Maxis and DiGi.

Here's for comparison:

35 sen a minute to 5 favorite XL users.
45 sen a minute to other XL users
38 sen a minute to fixed line in Indonesia
48 sen a minute to other mobile phone users in Indonesia (9pm to 9am, off peak)
58 sen a minute to other mobile phone users in Indonesia (9am to 9pm, peak)

Hotlink and DiGi
71 sen a minute to mobile phone users in Indonesia
39 sen a minute to fixed line users in Indonesia

TM's iTalk
45 sen a minute to either fixed or mobile lines in Indonesia
55 sen a minute to both fixed and mobile if customers chose mobile call back service

Clearly, Sukses rates are significantly more attractive than Hotlink and DiGi's -- users can save at least 18 per cent if they call to any mobile phone users in Indonesia. Marginal savings when users call fixed line numbers .. (who calls fixed line numbers these days anyway? ;-))

At the same time, its pricing does not really impose a threat on sister company TM's iTalk IDD cards.

It will be interesting to see how DiGi and Maxis Hotlink react to this....

IEEE Project Domain management in software engineering is distinct from traditional project deveopment in that software projects have a unique lifecycle process that requires multiple rounds of testing, updating, and faculty feedback. A IEEE Domain project Final Year Projects for CSE system development life cycle is essentially a phased project model that defines the organizational constraints of a large-scale systems project. The methods used in a IEEE DOmain Project systems development life cycle strategy Project Centers in India provide clearly defined phases of work to plan, design, test, deploy, and maintain information systems.

This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
