Messages and posts recently circulated on social media about the telecommunications industry transformation programme that is underway are incorrect and misleading.
Claims that employees of the telco companies will be “laid off”, “fired”, or “forced to quit” are completely false and unsubstantiated, said a statement by Darussalam Assets Sdn Bhd.
It is the commitment of Darussalam Assets Sdn Bhd, as the shareholder of the telecommunication companies, that no one will be laid off as a result of the transformation. This was made clear to all employees in February earlier this year.
Statements on social media claiming that the transformation will limit competition in the market are inaccurate. The transformation is enabling competition by giving each telecommunications operator equal access to the same technology and infrastructure.
Bruneians will benefit from more choice of providers, an increased range of services and digital innovation.
The public is advised to know the facts before speculating.
