Over the last 52 years, many have been led by the narrative, that the Rolling Stones, was all about Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. The record books though, would state otherwise.
Never underestimate, the power of a half baked narrative, because over time, it will be taken as a norm, and like wise be accepted as one.
Take for example , the current narrative's that have been built by the telco's, that a dual infrastructure network is best for Malaysia, is built around, what I believe, even the telco's know is not the best fit for Malaysia.
Why, do I believe so? Well look closely at the telco's real narrative READ : On This Date Feb 3 2020 : Malaysian Telco's say that the Single Infrastructure Network is BEST BET For Malaysia
This current narrative is fundamentally flawed and based on self interest. Are the telco's trying to screw up my country? Nevermind, that they may try to dodge the spectrum rights payment in the process.
Why should, a private entity, owned by private stakeholders be given the same privileges as the government owned Digital Nasional Bhd?
The 3g spectrum rights cost the telco's READ : More than RM6 billion .
Now how about the cost of building the 5G internet highway? Are the telcos, who currently pay more than 90 per cent of their profits, as dividends, banking on getting cheap loans from China, in return for appointing either Huawei or ZTE, both who black listed by the USA?
What if the war in the Balkan's escalate... can these contractors deliver? Do the contractors have enough 5G technical equipments, considering the Western world's embargo.
These narratives are missing in Malaysia's 5G story. Have we forgotten how Huawei fell from being the number one phone maker in the world. READ : In Less than 12 months, Huawei's phone business has been dismantled
Why have these narratives been shielded from the Malaysian public? Also, giving in to the telcos mean, we the public must pay more for a proven rotten bunch of service providers, which have placed us at the bottom of the pile in South East Asia.
