#YouCanDuit nak galakkan masyarakat negara ini mencari pendapatan tambahan diera IT dan ICT.

#YouCanDuit bukan sekadar nak galak rakyat, khususnya orang Melayu, cari DUIT tetapi faksafah di sebaliknya (pada pandangan saya) ialah “Killing Two Birds With One Stone” Ceh!!!! kena minta izin kan?

Mengapa saya kata begitu? Pertama membuka peluang kepada rakyat, khususnya orang Melayu cari “duit poket” tambahan. Kedua “memaksa” rakyat tanpa mengira usia untuk mengenali, mempelajari dan menggunakan IT/ICT.

Di zaman mendatang, IT/ICT akan menjadi satu perkara yang wajib diketahui oleh setiap orang. Malah sekarang pun semakin banyak aktiviti harian dah menggunakan teknologi IT/ICT.

Jika rakyat tidak mula berjinak dengan IT/ICT dari sekarang, bila lagi?

Kita dah nampak, Atuk, Nenek, Opah, Wan kita semakin ramai dah pandai menggunakan telefon bimbit. Ini satu kemajuan peribadi bagi mereka kerana mahu tidak mahu kena ikut arus perkembangan teknologi. Sama jugalah dengan teknologi komputer ni. Akan tiba satu hari, jika usia dunia panjang, semua aktiviti harian menggunakan hujung jari untuk berfungsi.

#YouCanDuit adalah inisiatif #MDEC (Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation) anak syarikat di bawah #MCMC untuk menjana transformasi ekonomi digital untuk rakyat.

Pada 1 dan 2 April 2017 #MDEC telah mengadakan satu karnival #YouCanDuit bertempat di Dewan Seri Mentalon, Alor Setar dan dihadiri oleh ribuan rakyat dari segenap lapisan untuk mengetahui apa itu #YouCanDuit.

Altel Or Clixster?

I am not sure whether they can be considered the new kid on the block but clixster had been on the scene since May 2011 and I had heard about Altel that began operation since July 2012. There is not much information on their website about the product. The only prominent dofferent from other major telco and communication players in Malaysia is that both services are Bumiputra based. Clixster is operated by Keramat Resources Sdn. Bhd. It join hand with ANGKASA (National Cooperative Organisation of Malaysia) to venture into the mobile telecomunication service. Altel Communication, meanwhile is owned by Albukhary Group of Companies.

CLIXSTER coverage runs on Digi APN and that means it has the same coverage as Digi (?) and Altel at present are using the celcom infrastructure but have plans to set up their own telecommunication tower in future.

Altel is owned by Puncak Semangat Sdn. Bhd. among the eight companies awarded with the 2600Mhz LTE spectrum by Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia (SKMM) to enable the company to provide 4G services. Read MORE.

When a prospective subscriber has the intention to subscribe to a communication service, of course the first question that come into their mind is coverage. However when I surf on both Altel and Clixster website there are no information whatsoever about their coverage, what more the coverage map. This is I think is a minus factor for both provider to attract new subscribers. Now after doing some research for both provider, at least I have some info about coverage. If you want to subscribe to Altel, then the coverage might be equivalent to Celcoms’ while Altel to Digi. With Google Maps widely used by internet users, it quite surprising that they can’t plot out their coverage or at least give some hint by sharing Celcom and Digi’s coverage map if they do not want to create their own being afraid of sending prospective subscriber to  other telcos.

I had came across postings on Facebook and blogs wondering why Altel and clixster does not rise to the occassion and one of the accusation is that sabotage by dealers because both service belong to Bumiputra. Personally I beg to differ. My view is about marketing and promotion.

Clixster was launched at the Hari Koperasi Kebangsaan at Bukit Jalil Sports Complex in 2011 and I bought a starter pack but did not activate (which now has expired). Ever since I did not hear anything about clixster. I can’t remember seeing any billboard anywhere advertising clixster and the same goes to Altel. Compare that to Celcom, Digi, Hotlink and UMobile.

Both clixster and Altel has no effort to make their presence felt.  Only when a few Facebook user start mentioning it on their wall, people starts getting aware of its presence. Just visit both website and the ‘juice’ is not there and looks so stale and barren. I think the webmaster for both provider has to wake up and present a more attractive website. Just compare clixster and altel webpage to Digi, Celcom, Umobile and Maxis, you know what I mean.
