Similar to its previous flagship smart phone bundling, the Galaxy Note 5 and S6 edge+ are likely to be sold with their First by Celcom Postpaid plans. Both devices will come with Dual-SIM support, which is a first for a flagship by Samsung Malaysia.

Buying a smart phone on contract sometimes can be like a jail sentence. Not only you’re tied for 24 months but you would also need to fork out a huge sum of money upfront, which sometimes cost more in total than the actual phone itself. While there are some telcos offering zero waiver for upfront payments, you’re essentially still tied down to the same phone until your 24 months duration is up.
Maxis wants to change the way you buy your smart phones by introducing the Zerolution program. It promises absolutely no payment upfront, no contracts and no interest fee over your monthly payments. Best of all, this isn’t an Easy Payment Plan that requires a credit card. Everything you hate about a phone contract be gone. Sounds too good to be true? Read on to find out.
The MaxisONE Plan promises peace of mind with its bundled internet, limit-less talk and SMS proposition. While the idea of not being charged extra for phone calls and SMS is good, many including us weren’t too fond of its paltry internet quota that came with it.
With internet becoming the core of smart phone usage, the folks of Maxis has finally updated its MaxisONE Plan offering with more data than before, and it hopes to be the “one” plan to suit everyone.
If you need to connect up to 10 devices while on the go, Celcom has its own MiFi product that’s called the PortaWiFi. As part of their Merdeka promo, they are offering its newer PortaWiFi 2.0 device on a new plan with more data and at a lower monthly commitment. This is seen as a response to U Mobile’s latest broadband offer that gives you 12GB of data (off-peak + on-peak) from RM68/month.
Celcom introduces its FIRST One postpaid plan for a limited time only in conjunction with the upcoming Merdeka celebrations. The plan is originally priced at RM68/month but they are giving RM20 off rebate each month for life to those who signed up by 31st August. The FIRST One offers 2GB of mobile data, 60 minutes of calls and 60 SMS to all networks for just RM48/month.
This apparently replaces its earlier First Basic 38 plan that offered 3GB of just RM38/month. Of the two, the earlier Basic 38 offers better value for less.

Your smart phone experience is only as good as the connection it’s on. No doubt most telcos these days offer 4G connectivity but did you know that not all networks are built the same? To enjoy seamless YouTube, gaming, web surfing and music streaming, you’ll need a network that’s both fast and consistent throughout the day.
If you want the best internet experience, Maxis should be on top of your list and read on for 4 reasons why.
Hot on the heels of the official OnePlus 2 announcement today, Maxis has released a tweet teasing that they might be bringing in the device sooner than we think. The telco also is the sole retail channel for the OnePlus One in Malaysia and this doesn’t surprise us one bit.
The mobile postpaid scene in Malaysia was shaken recently with affordable data plans from Digi, Celcom and U Mobile. In response to these affordable sub-RM40 plans, Maxis is now introducing its MaxisGO postpaid with 2GB of data at RM48/month. That’s not all as it also includes 100 minutes of calls and 100 SMS each month.
So is this better than its SurfMore 50 plan with 2GB/month? Wait until you read the fine lines.
The Malaysian prepaid scene is getting some serious shake up as U Mobile has introduced its new POWER prepaid plan with heaps of free internet. Putting an end to the atrocious pay per use internet charges, the new U Mobile prepaid offers free basic internet just like other prepaid rivals. So there’s no more reason to panic over missing credit if you accidentally surf online without an active prepaid plan.
The good stuff doesn’t just end there as POWER prepaid offers the most generous high-speed internet in the market. Following Celcom’s hyped #MagicSIM offering that comes with 10MB of free high speed internet for every RM1 you top up, U Mobile has up the ante with 1GB of free high-speed every month for life. All you’ll need to do is to top up RM10 one-time with the new SIM Pack and this is valid for registrations before 31st Dec 2015.
UPDATE: U Mobile’s new POWER prepaid is now official.
U Mobile will be announcing a new product tomorrow which will put other free internet offers to shame. From the recent #FreeInternetForLife teasers, they are expected to do away with the usual pay per use charges for internet and will offer unlimited free “basic” internet out of the SIM pack. This is similar to what Maxis’ #Hotlink, Xpax’s #MagicSIM and Digi’s new SMART prepaid has to offer.
But is that it? If U Mobile wants to shake up the industry, they have got to offer more than just free throttled internet. Ahead of its launch tomorrow, we managed to get a glimpse of U Mobile’s new prepaid plan and let’s just say that it could put even some postpaid plans to shame.
