Let the picture speak for itself. This is common around Indonesia. Satelite dish. Even squatter own one.

More satelite dishes

Some people do suggest unsubscribe Astro to protest the hike. I think this is not the point. The problem is MONOPOLY. With limited choices, at the end, consumer who need TV entertainment or information, has limited choices. Unless they spend money to buy a PC and subscribe TMNUT, or soon to be private Maxis.

    The Indonesians are having better choices than us.

    Astro has become suckers… that’s a sad tale about Malaysia as the government do not believe in anti-trust laws.

    I’d wouldnt say Astro monopolize the Malaysian market, anyone can just come up with a new cable TV with no storm interuptions. But whos willing to invest in a big time game like that. On top of that MEASAT satelites dont come cheap.
    Dont look so far, the same satelites are on top of most East Malaysian houses.200-400 channels and only less than RM100 per year.

    moo_t : Monopolies by policies. Bolehland will never grow up if people never think of anti-trust.
