AsiaSpace Amax is shutting down?

I have received a number of complaints from Amax’s subsribers, saying that the Amax WiMAX network went offline since two weeks back.

I assumed it was a network fault but a check on Asiaspace Amax revealed that both of their web sites(www.asiaspace.com.my & www.amax.my) are offline and customer support were not available at the time of writing.

Emails sent to their management were not replied and a number of people that I know appears to have resigned from Asiaspace (with 1-month notice). It is also believed that Asiaspace has dropped a number of their project including the mobileTV(DMB) project.

All these points to one thing—> Is AsiaSpace Amax shutting down?

It is believed that one of the green WiMAX operator might have shown interest to acquire Amax and Asiaspace but Asiaspace might just want to let go Amax. It is also possible that they were other parties interested in acquiring Amax or working with them, but possibly all those offers have been turned down.

Last checked with MCMC, they have yet to received any reports on his matter but they did received complaints from Amax subscribers who had problems with Amax.

I’m hoping to hear some official response from Asiaspace or MCMC regarding this matter.

P.s: I wish all the best to all ex-Asiaspace employees in finding a new job.
