XOX’s wholly-owned unit, XOX Mobile will create 20,000 new jobs in Malaysia through its new nationwide campaign, the Online Dealer Affiliate Programme.

In a statement seen by Bernama yesterday, XOX Mobile group chief executive officer Ng Kok Heng said in good or bad times, the group, as part of an essential service, is still providing and creating jobs via its dealer affiliate programme.

“The programme is online and it only takes effort and hard work but it is all very doable for our dealers to make a living in these difficult times,” he added.

With the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the group estimates that over 2.7 million households under the bottom 40 per cent (B40) income category are likely to be the most affected.

On a separate note, with many workers working from home during this period, Ng believes that during these difficult times, forking out money for internet and communications which is considered essential in this modern-day should also not be an additional burden.

During the nationwide Movement Control Order period, the group is aware of its users’ increased internet and communications needs. Hence, it has created a prepaid plan that gives users 28 months validity, Ng said.

He explained: “For other telcos, 365 days equals to RM365 spending just to stay connected, but our users only need to spend RM50 and that is a savings of up to RM315 a year. If we are talking about our 1.5 million prepaid plan only users, we have created savings of up to RM472.5 million for Malaysians, and this is only for one year.”

Ng concluded that XOX Mobile remains committed to creating the most innovative products and income avenues that will benefit its users and dealers as the company strives towards bringing the best mobile experience to the region.
