What is happening to Time dotCom?

Time dotCom has been in the RED for the past few years. In the year 2002, there were rumors that Maxis is planning to take over Time dotCom. Around March last year, Time dotCom was in “merger talk” with Jaring(Time had just won a 3G license). On December last year, TM was said to be the one to acquire Time. Lately, DiGi was in “talks” to acquire Time dotCom.
