Damn!!! Again??? Looks like Astro is taking the easy way to pass the so called 'increase operating cost' down to millions of their consumers. I believe besides the monthly subscription, Astro has other source of income, such as media, advertisement, event, etc. Wonder whether they have implement other cost cutting measures before deciding to pass the cost down to consumers.
If the price shoot up, don't expect it will ever go down again.
