Four New WiMAX operators told to co-operate

The four new WiMAX operators, Redtone-CNX Broadband Sdn Bhd, Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, Asiaspace and BizSurf (M) Sdn Bhd will be asked to share their infrastructure says Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik.

Quoted from Business Times:
“I have already sounded out to the WiMAX operators and all said it is a good idea” he said.

Would you rather get an expensive service roll-out in a quicker time or a cheaper service but the roll-out at a slower timing? he asked.

“The shared services will allow them (operators) to concentrate on providing services plus products and content that go with the services.Otherwise, they will be concentrating on infrastructure and nobody worries about content and services, he added.
