Anyone notice the grammatical error in that sentence or am I wrong? Shouldn't it be This is Celcom's Territory instead? Unless they mean the 2 word Celcom Territory as a noun.

Any English teacher here care to help?

No, I am not an English teacher, but i find it alright. In this instance eventhough the word Celcom is a noun but here its used as an adjective to describe the territory. Correct me if i am wrong.

i think they mean Celcom Territory as a noun so it's ok to me.

Agree with Ski. Nothing wrong with using "This is Celcom Territory" cos Celcom is a name to address the phone establishment and could be used as an adjective, as it's a noun.

I dunno if anyone of u still remember the Digi advertisement / commercials in tv, where they go about in m'sia be it north or south area ... sticking a pole to the ground implementing that they hv covered such areas ... ???

Anyway, I think what i'm tryin' to say here is that .... Celcom covers locally , whereas Digi & Maxis .. is already worldwide ... :eek:

So Celcom is jz a local "hak seh wooi" and other 2 network co. hv already expanded their territory? :rolleyes:

ok ok .. either network all also the same .. when it comes to festives season .. connections all sux .. :mad:

Celcom Territory

The only thing that I would have against it is not related to English language, but that it reflects an outdated monopolistic mind set.

There is no such thing as 'territory' in wireless. TM can still talk about 'territory' because they have monopoly in fixed line which is territorial in nature. But in wireless you share the territory and compete on customer value and footprint, not territory.

Celcom's use of the word 'territory' is one of increasingly numerous sings that, unfortunately, they're beginning to loose the plot.
