Get ready for a new mobile network 010

Tune Talk Sdn Bhd, in which Celcom (M) Bhd has a 35% equity stake, is finally set to launch a new prepaid mobile service next Wednesday after over a year’s delay.

Tune Talk is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) that rides on Celcom’s cellular infrastructure to roll out services as it does not have its own spectrum, but has operations in billings, customer care and switching systems.“We are offering voice, SMS and data services on a 2.5G platform. A user just needs to buy a SIM card for RM5 and insert it into his mobile phone, choose the number he wants and he is connected to our network,” Tune Talk chief executive officer Jason Lo told StarBiz in an interview yesterday. “We are going to offer very low flat rates for our Tune Talk service and we offer nationwide coverage from day one.’’Tune Talk’s prefix for its cellular service is 010.

The resurrection of 010! Good for Celcom - more money to be made from this 'resurrection'.
