Celcom and Telekom Malaysia have signed an agreement that will see Celcom leasing part of TM’s network. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed to allow Celcom to increase its fibre-optic network coverage using infrastructure provided by TM Next-Gen Backhaul (TMNGB) services, while also providing a robust backhaul network for its LTE network.
Remember the Hotlink Tablet Plan that offers 1GB of data that is valid for 365 days? Starting 1 May 2015, the plan will be 50% cheaper than before, retailing at only RM30 for the starter pack. On top of that, the telco also has cheaper data add-on options with long validity period of up to 365 days.
[Update] This plan is even better than you think! You will get 3GB of Internet + 3GB of Wi-Fi as long as your Celcom First Basic 38 Plan is active if you sign up within the 6 months promotion period. Details available after the break.
Think that a starting price of RM85 a month is a little too expensive for a postpaid plan, especially if you’re a light user? Celcom just introduced a new First Basic 38 plan at only RM38/month and as a promotion, it comes with 3GB of data along with some free calls and SMS.
Digi has rolled out a new forum, called the People Powered Hub, on its website. Despite having no official announcement, it looks like this is a one stop place for people to communicate with Digi and discuss matters about the telco. It also looks like an easily accessible place for information about Digi and its plans.
Maxis has just released the details to its OnePlus One device bundle. The OnePlus One will retail at RM1,199 when it lands on our shores starting tomorrow, 22 April 2015, but the telco is offering it at only RM859 when you sign up for a contract with their MaxisONE postpaid plan.
Maxis has just opened up its trade-in program to offer the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. If you have an old smartphone lying around the house that you don’t use anymore, the telco is offering from RM200 to RM950 in trade-in value, allowing you to get the Galaxy Note 4 from as low as RM749.
Recently, Maxis approached us with a very interesting proposition. Alongside a few other publications, the local telco wanted us to really test out its “no bill shocks” promise for its customers, which is a statement made as part of its 2015 “Unmatched Customer Experience” programme. We were told we could do virtually anything we wanted to see if we could break the company’s many fail-safe measures to ensure the consumer does not end up with, well, a bill shock at the end of the month.
How could we even say no to that?
If you are a DiGi customer that resides in Kuching, Bintulu, and Miri or often visits any of them, we have a good news for you. Earlier today, DiGi has officially launched its 4G LTE in Sarawak and these three cities are among the earliest area to be covered by DiGi’s LTE network in the state.
