Fantastic Fact and Funny
This is really funny. I learned today that Najib Razak has been given the ITU World Telecommunication and Information Society Award for his "efforts to promote ICT as a means of providing a better lifestyle for Malaysians." I saw this full-paged advertisement congratulating him on the award. I had just had breakfast and I didn't know if I wanted to laugh hysterically or just throw up my scrambled eggs and toast.
Okay, I tell you why. And this is just ONE of the reasons. I am very sure that you will have dozens of reasons of your own to want to nail TM to the wall.
My wife applied for a fixed line telephone and Streamyx service yesterday at a Kedai TM. She was told that her fixed-line phone service would take 1 week to activate. Streamyx will take 2 weeks!!! Huh? Exactly! I mean this is 2010. One week to get a phone line and 2 weeks to get Streamyx? What does TM have to do? Dig trenches and lay cables? Do some re-wiring so my wife's shop can get a line in? What?
Promote ICT as a means of providing a better lifestyle for Malaysians? I think Najib should first start by kicking some lazy, inefficient, privatised asses in TM!
