What looks like a brand new MVNO (riding on Maxis’ network) has popped up on our radar. It’s called ookyo and it claims to offer “unlimited internet” for RM30/month. But, after a little digging, ookyo seems more like a Maxis sub-brand — kind of like Happy to Digi back in the day — than an MVNO.
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 is now available for pre-order in Malaysia between 5 to 10 September 2017. Retailing at RM3,999, this is the most expensive Samsung Galaxy Note yet but you can enjoy substantial subsidy if you get it on contract.

To celebrate Malaysia’s 60th Merdeka Day, Hotlink has released a total of 60 Malaysia themed GIF depicting local terms and slangs that are commonly used by Malaysians. These Malaysiamojis are available starting today on Facebook across all smartphone devices.
We recently received a tip that Maxis will throttle peer-to-peer traffic on their Home Broadband Plans between 8PM to 2AM daily. To confirm this, we contacted Maxis and we’re told that this wasn’t the case as all customers should be able to enjoy full speeds throughout the day.
For the nocturnal internet users, Hotlink now has a prepaid plan that comes with its very own “Burung Hantu” internet feature. With their Hotlink Super Prepaid, you can get 1GB of high-speed “Internet Larut Malam” each night plus 1GB of high-speed internet everyday with their current Hotlink Happy Hour promotion. That’s a whopping 60GB of free high-speed internet each month.
The 2nd phase of the MRT Line 1 is now open and this includes an underground section that goes through the heart of KL city. When Digi invited us for a 4G Underground MRT challenge earlier this week, we thought why not we test out 4 of our big telcos in Malaysia? So we did.

U Mobile will be ending its networking sharing and alliance agreement with Maxis which they had signed back in 2011. This agreement allowed U Mobile users to roam on Maxis’ 3G and 2G network where U Mobile’s own 4G/3G coverage isn’t available. The termination will be done in phases over 18 months and it is expected to be completed by 27 December 2018.
