Celcom signs MOU with XOX Com – Malaysia

Malaysian MNO Celcom has signed a memorandum of understanding with one of the MVNOs which operate on its network, XOX Com.

The agreement is reportedly to be for XOX Com to supply a bespoke service to the Chinese community residing in Malaysia. Chief Executive Officer of Celcom, Datuk Seri Shazalli Ramly admitted that the MVNO had garnered a smaller number of Chinese subscribers than it had been expecting. XOX Com maintains that the Chinese community is one of the population segments it has performed well in previously.

Although remaining tight-lipped about the memorandum, Ng Kok Heng did reveal that the deal will see XOX Com produce Chinese specific language services and content, with full details to follow in the next quarter.
