This is no surprise at all. I run a multinational business but until the telecommunications industry gets some competition there is no chance of running it from here. We'll stay with Singapore where we can use Blackberry, internet, house our mail server and keep in contact with the other offices via Skype. From a global business point of view, this part of the world is a dead duck.

Its about time someone told them this.. the prices are ridiculous for the amount of service been provided.. their mobile data plans are more expensive than "500mins of talktime, unlimited nights and weekends, unlimited texting, unlimited data and MMS" combined bundle in the USA.
