  1. Pon, I’ve being riding the FSMART wave for a while now but this story about True muscling in on these top up machines has me wary. What are your thoughts on this?


    • I have no faith in True’s management team being able to execute anything properly, unless they are willing to throw a fortune at it just for market share then yes you have the right to be worried. However it would still be years before they could catch up with FSMART or make a dent in their market share.

      • Thanks Pon, appreciate your thoughts on this, as with True, my concern is always with them initiating a loss driven scorched earth tactic for the sake of market share. Now Mr True has become Mr CP could we see more digging into CP’s deep pockets for cash?

          • Yes, I saw the earning report last night and the management analysis was trying to put on a strong front in the face of mounting problems for DTAC.
