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.
Now that the contract bundles for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from Maxis, DiGi and Celcom have been revealed, which one is the more economical option? Which plan offers the best value for money to own over the entire contract period? We take all the plans offered by all three telcos and put them together so you can make an informed decision. The telcos are offering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with plans ranging from a monthly commitment of only RM50 all the way to over RM200, so whether you are a light mobile user or one who practically stays connected 24/7, there is an iPhone postpaid plan catered for your needs.
Local telco Maxis has deployed 1000 of its own employees in a Peninsula Malaysia-wide test of its modernised data network. This “New Network Test Drive” covers major metropolitan areas in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Pahang, Penang, and Johor, and is a way to get Maxis’ own people to experience the network while engaging with the public.
