A woman was shocked to discover that her son had somehow managed to rack up a bill of RM586,553 on his smartphone. However, DiGi eventually noticed the error and it was discovered that the massive number was a result of a missed decimal point; the actual amount owed is “only” RM5,865.53.
While most of us in the city are enjoying our fast internet, streaming videos and music on the internet everyday, reading through social networks when we’re free, and downloading files at a relatively fast speed, what about the rural villages in this country?

About two months ago, U Mobile introduced a free non-stop streaming service for YouTube and Tonton and now, the telco has included free music streaming to the offer as well.

Many of Malaysia’s mobile Internet service providers often claim that their service offers unrivalled speeds with an affordable price to match. However, just how far would these companies back their claims up? Maxis is taking that to another level, by putting a human life on the line through various speed tests.
Maxis has just revised its trade-in offer, allowing you to get the Samsung Galaxy Alpha at a subsidised price, and save up to RM950 extra when you trade in your old phone with the telco. Like the trade-in offer for Sony Xperia Z3 that was announced last month, you can get a minimum trade-in value of RM200 but if you have one of the listed devices, it can go up to RM950.
It’s the end of the year and Maxis has got some goodies up its sleeves for its Hotlink users. From now until 31 January 2015, purchase a weekly or monthly internet pass and on top of getting 50% more data, you will also be able to enter the Pin It to Win It contest to stand a chance to win a grand prize of a trip to the Facebook Campus in California.
