A new report on the state of LTE connections across the globe has been released by OpenSignal; and it shows that Malaysia is not doing all that badly compared to developed countries. The usual suspects still top the charts in terms of LTE speeds and coverage, but the rest of the world is catching […]
Originally announced by Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Razak under the revised Budget 2016 last week, the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has finally shed some light on the upcoming spectrum reallocation that will be done through bidding process. It apparently will be affecting spectrum in the 900MHz and 1,800MHz bands as well as […]
Maxis is giving back to the Malaysian community by building homes for those in need. Called the “Kongsi Home” project, Maxis is collaborating with EPIC Homes as well as five online retailers to turn customers’ online shopping into online giving.
In conjunction with the Lunar New Year, Maxis has introduced the “CNY Zerolution Promo”. Essentially, the promo offers a reduced Zerolution monthly fee on selected phones, free 12GB of mobile Internet, and a limited edition pink Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – which is a first in Malaysia.
Maxis is currently testing direct billing for content sold on the Google Play Store. What this means is that Maxis customers will no longer have to add a debit or credit card to purchase apps, movies or books. They can do so by directly charging the cost into their Maxis account.
Maxis Zerolution has added quite a number of devices ever since its inception back in September of 2015. Those who have set their eyes on getting Apple’s latest iPhones might be interested with what Maxis is offering. That’s right, the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is now on Zerolution, but there’s a catch.
Only a month after Xiaomi released its Redmi Note 2 in Malaysia, Maxis has picked up the device and made it available on its online store. The device can be bought for RM99, depending on which MaxisONE plan the user subscribes to.
Not long after Acer has launched the mid-range Liquid Z630 smartphone, Maxis has added the smartphone to its lineup of devices offered in the Maxis online store. The Acer Liquid Z630 is currently available for purchase with the MaxisONE plan.
Maxis is currently offering the iPad Pro on its online store, bundled with the SurfMore 50 plan. The Apple iPad Pro is the company’s latest tablet that is aimed towards professionals; those who want a larger screen will definitely be interested in this offer.
The Force is really strong with Maxis as the company has announced that it will be giving out a total of 12 units of Sphero’s Star Wars BB-8 Droid. To win them, customers just need to be quick with their purchases in Maxis’ Online Store.
Despite the 60% population coverage that Digi recently announced, Maxis insists that it is the true telecommunication company that provides the best 4G LTE network coverage in Malaysia. The company is saying it is capable of giving customers not just great coverage but quality speeds as well. To prove it, the company is holding a 24 hour […]
[Update] The Complete List of Postpaid Voice Plans in Malaysia and What they Offer – Celcom, Maxis, DiGi and U Mobile
[Update 18/11/2015]: Celcom has launched two of their latest plans, FIRST Blue and FIRST Gold. As a result of that, the telco has also removed all previous plans. Digi has also updated their SmartPlan with the addition of Digi SmartPlan 238. Maxis also removed SurfMore 75 and introduced MaxisGO. [Update 11/5/2015]: A lot has happened since […]
Maxis recently announced that it now has the largest 4G coverage in the country, and that seems to have spurred the telco into doing something rather unusual. As one of the three largest mobile telcos in the industry, Maxis is publicly inviting chief engineers from Celcom and Digi to an open dialogue on 4G measurement standards.
While the claims of LTE coverage between Maxis and DiGi has sparked plenty of attention from consumers, it is rather interesting to note that these two companies are not only working to spread their LTE footprint but are also working to bring forward new features and technology to their customers. If DiGi recently talked about […]
In its Q3 financial report, Maxis has announced that the local telecommunications company’s 4G LTE coverage has now reached 55% of the population in Malaysia. The larger coverage surpasses Digi’s recent announcement earlier this month, where it revealed that its own 4G LTE coverage has hit the 50% mark.
Starting today, Maxis is scrapping the requirement of an invite code to purchase the OnePlus 2 from the local telco’s outlets and online store, allowing you to purchase the smartphone without a contract and without an invite.
If you have a OnePlus 2 invitation code from Maxis but do not wish to sign up for a contract or Zerolution from the telco just to get the phone, you may now do so. Maxis is offering the OnePlus 2 without contract, for a retail price of RM1,687 before 6% GST.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be launched in Malaysia on 16 October 2015, but it looks like Maxis will be offering it a week earlier. The telco just announced that the pre-order for both devices will begin on Friday, 9 October 2015 at their online store.
