Data roaming has just gotten a whole lot more affordable. Xpax recently launched a new Xpax 1-Day Basic Internet Pass, allowing subscribers to stay digitally connected for only RM1 a day. As its name suggest, the data roaming internet pass offers basic internet access, suitable for those who just wish to stay connected on social chats.
The new 1-Day Basic Internet Pass is available for those travelling to nine selected Asean countries, including Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos and Philippines. It offers basic internet speed for text-based messages only on apps such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook Messenger, and other social messaging apps.
To subscribe, simply send “BASIC ROAM” to 28882 on your Xpax number, dial *118#, or subscribe via the Xpax app.
For those who require additional data or high-speed internet access when roaming, Xpax also has other roaming passes:
- 1-Day Social Roam Pass at RM10 per day – 1GB Social Media Access (WhatsApp, Twitter, WeChat + 500MB Hi-Speed Internet Quota) in 10 countries such as India, Japan, Taiwan and many more.
- 1-Day Internet Pass at RM38 per day – up to 500MB data quota in more than 160 countries
While basic internet may seem slow, it is just good enough for subscribers to stay connected via messaging, so friends and family can easily contact them when they are travelling abroad.
