How MVNO can curb monopoly?

The Sun (Financial Daily, page 2) - December 21, 2005. According to Datuk Seri Dr. Lim Kheng Aik (Minister of Energy, communication and water Malaysia):

"APPLICANTS vying for 3G licences will have to adhere to a new condition involving the promotion of mobile virtual network operators (MVNO), in order to avoid monopoly by licence holders"

MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator)
Previously, I did blog about Redtone's venture into the MVNO; where it is supposed to be a dynamic setup concept for the next generation telecommunication infrastructure.

But I am just curious how can it benefit open-policy ?

Referring to the official guidelines by MCMC that:

Mobile operators are faced with a situation where even before recouping the investments in the current infrastructure, they are forced to invest in new generation networks, which makes investment in mobile infrastructure recurrent.

As a result of this phenomenon, service based competition is increasingly gaining prominence in the mobile sector compared to facilities based competition as service based competition is a way in which mobile operators can recoup their investment.

In order to facilitate and promote service based competition, regulators around the world are increasingly placing more emphasis on issues such as infrastructure sharing and domestic roaming.

In line with the requirements in the AIP, licensees who submitted bids for 3Gspectrum had outlined various options on infrastructure sharing.

It seems like TMB(Telekom Malaysia Berhad) is obligated to participate in this project since it is the one with the vastmost facilities in terms of telecommunication.

The caveat is that by doing so, TMB will not be seen as a monopoly player in the field. Something which is parallel with MCMC's open policy for non-monopoly. This eventually will quench the politically issue associated with TMB's monopoly.

Thus, just like what Dato Seri Dr. Lim Kheng Aik mentioned that the purpose of the MVNO concept is to curb monopoly is quite true in the aspect of TMB. Otherwise, it is more accurate to view it as a solution for cost-efficiency and convergence of technologies.

Yes, I think so. But we really need the government to push it, knowing how snobbish our existing telcos are. That's why it become one of the components for the new 3G applications, see if Digi is more willing to share this time...

I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank
