Data roaming has just gotten a whole lot more affordable because Maxis has just announced a new Data Roam Saver plan, allowing you to stay connected to the internet for only RM10/day while you’re roaming.
Available in 16 countries, Data Roam Saver offers 50MB of data for only RM10/day. Don’t be too disappointed with the tiny bit of data though, after exceeding the 50MB quota, you can still continue to browse the internet at no extra charge at all. Sure, the speed will be throttled, but at least you won’t get a bill shock because you forgot to turn data roaming off right?
Data Roam Saver is available in these countries:
- Hong Kong
- Saudi Arabia
- South Korea
To subscribe to Data Roam Saver, dial *100# on your mobile phone. Select International Roaming, the country of choice and “Buy Data Roam Saver”. Alternatively, you can send SMS “Buy datasaver <country>” and send to 20008. If you wish to have high-speed internet after using the first 50MB of data, you may purchase additional 50MB using the same method. Visit Maxis for more information.
Finally, if you wish to stay connected throughout the day, check out our Unlimited Data Roaming with Malaysian Postpaid Telcos post for the full list of data roaming offers including the price and the local telco you should connect to, to enjoy the offer.
