CYBERJAYA, 16 NOVEMBER 2016 – As part of the spectrum reallocation exercise that was recently announced by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the designated Service Providers (SP) will be scheduling recalibration work on their base stations throughout the country starting from September 2016 to June 2017.
While the Communications and Multimedia Consumer Forum of Malaysia (CFM) expects the process will run smoothly with minimal inconvenience to mobile subscribers, consumers should know what to expect and where to seek more information on this matter.
To minimize the impact of this migration exercise to the general public during the said period, the SPs have scheduled for selected stations to be reconfigured between 12AM to 6AM. However, the timing of the process taken may vary subject to the respective Service Providers.
Consumers may be facing temporary service disruptions primarily for 2G customers who might experience dropped calls and/or SMS/messaging delays during this period. If consumers should experience prolonged service disruption, CFM would like to advice consumers to contact respective Service Providers for further assistance as follows:
|MAXIS||1-800-82-112 or 123 (from Maxis numbers)|
|CELCOM||019-601 1111 or 1111 (from Celcom numbers)|
|MCMC||1 800 188 030|
