Acquired? This is the word that hangs around when companies are in trouble and needs a way out. I am not too sure on the validity of this story but BT has already posted something about it here.

It all started when I got a SMS from PCSB? What is PCSB… Progresif Cellular Sdn Bhd I guess. It was about 4 pm when I got the SMS and at first I thought it was just a hoax, maybe a phishing attack (wikipedia) so I didn’t even bothered to go to the said website.

Then I got curious just about 9 p.m. and started calling 177 for B-mobile customer service and I always get the talking woman who says that their customer service line is 24 hrs a day in operation. After 20 sec of her voice, it hangs up automatically without me successfully getting a person on the other line, every time for the next 20 or so calls I tried (was pretty persistent) :). Anyway, I went online and checked the said website and B-Mobile site. Both sites were totally down. I used the site http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com

So now here we are, the acquisition may be a hoax or a prank by some hacker or it is in fact for real. Well, I guess there will be more news popping out pretty soon.
