Hotlink is hyping its rewards program with this rather creative approach.

Claycam is a website that features a clay modeller sculpting clay all day long. The hype is is that the clay modeller sculpts models based on your requests.

So you can log on to the site and submit a request and if its approved, it will appear on a que. All you have to do then is wait for the your request to move up the order and eventually be sculptured in clay.

And apparently this is all streamed live.

The site will be up for five days this month starting from 4 Aug to 8 Aug. You can watch the clay modeller sculpt all sorts of stuff in clay daily from 10am to 8pm.

Did you notice Hotlink changed its tagline from “Activate your life Life Unlimited” to “So much is possible”.

MNP in Malaysia has been hot on the lips of telcos recently as it is seen as a big shake up in the communication business. After a long wait, MCMC has finally confirmed that MNP or better known as Mobile Number Portability will kick off in the Klang Valley by September before it is implemented Nationwide by October.

What is MNP?
If you haven’t heard of it, MNP allows mobile subscribers to keep their mobile numbers including its prefix with them if they wish to switch to a different operator. Currently, there are 4 main operators in the country and the prefixes (010, 011, 012, 013, 014, 015, 016, 017, 018, 019) are fixed with the registered operators.

If a user is a Maxis subscriber bearing 012-1234567, he/she won’t be able to bring this number with them when switching to a different operator. This has become a big barrier for consumers who wish to switch as mobile numbers tend to be a personal identity which many won’t want to lose. Read the rest of this entry »

After Maxis launched its Hotlink 365, DiGi has responded with its Reload Once, Stay Connected for ONE Year offer for a limited time period between 23rd July – 31st August 2008.

DiGi’s offer is simple and gives more value to its customers as it only requires a RM100 usable reload. This means every single sen spent for validity is actual credit or talk time that subscribers can use.

On Hotlink 365, its subscribers are required to pay a yearly fee of RM33 which is similar to paying access fee which subscriber can’t utilise.  On top of the RM33 fee, they would need to top up RM30 within the first 6 months of activation.
