Now that Celcom has announced a new plan for its iPhone 5S bundles at only RM48 a month, how does it stack up against what Maxis and DiGi have got to offer with their similar monthly commitment bundles? We compared the new RM48 plan from Celcom, Maxis’ iValue Simple and the latest iDiGi 50 so hit the break to check them out.
For an iPhone user, what DiGi has got to offer seems to be the best deal because it has the most data (I presume an iPhone user should be using a lot of data), and it even comes with some free call minutes and SMS for very basic users. For those who make more calls (it looks like Maxis love to cater their bundles for talkative individuals), Maxis will have the best deal. Celcom’s plan looks pretty expensive since it doesn’t come with any free calls or SMS but paying RM48 for 1.5GB actually sounds pretty decent. The biggest flaw with Celcom is how it only offers the bundle with a 24-month contract, while the other two ties you up for one year only. However, do note that Celcom’s RM48/month deal is only a promotion and will end on 31 August 2014.
For those who are interested in getting the iPhone 5C, do note that only Maxis and DiGi are offering it with the RM50/month commitment. Celcom’s plan is only applicable for the iPhone 5S.
