A traditional credit card reader is usually a wired device that is connected to a telephone cable which leave it restricted to cashier’s counter. That is certainly not the case with the new Maybank mPOS portable payment system that is designed to be used with smartphones and tablets.
The system is mainly aimed at SMEs and small retailers due to its low-cost entry point but it is generally meant for any merchants out there that require a mobile card payment solution. Launched earlier today, the bank has partnered with Maxis who has now include Maybank mPOS as part of its business solution.
If you’ve been wanting to sign up with Maxis’ SurfMore 75 data-centric postpaid plan, you better do it fast because effective 29 January 2015, the plan will no longer be available for new subscribers. On top of that, they will also remove voice add-on plan for SurfMore subscribes, as well as revise the price for SurfMore data upgrades.
DiGi earlier today has introduced its newly revamped identity and brand strategy to represent its renewed focus on mobile Internet and customer’s engagement. Complete with a new logo that clearly identify the telco as part of Telenor Group, DiGi’s CEO Lars Norling stated that this is not just a mere new marketing image for DiGi but instead, it is a full blown change throughout the organization.
Claiming itself as an “independent entity that is not linked to any telco companies“, Don’t Bodoh looks like a nifty, professionally-done website that apparently allows users to “compare” telco plans and determine which one is most suitable to them. As we dug deeper in our effort to learn more about this particularly secretive “independent entity”, we learned that Don’t Bodoh is misleading users into believing that the site is actually giving sound advice to them.
In fact, Don’t Bodoh can be considered as a fraud depending on how you look at things.
Maxis recently launched a brand new MyMaxis app that makes it a whole lot easier for its subscribers to manage their Maxis accounts, as well as exclusive new features. As someone who has lots of bills to pay and tend to forget about them (hence overpaying whenever I remember), I think it’s an extremely useful app that puts your Maxis account at your fingertips, allowing you to view and pay your bills, check your usage, purchase additional data and view rewards.
