When it comes to the internet, most mobile users would demand more quota with less monthly commitments. That’s exactly what Celcom is trying to address with its new Celcom FIRST Blue and FIRST Gold postpaid plans. Boasting superior 4G, superior quota and better weekends, the new plans offer more accumulative internet with up to 12GB a month.
Expanding as a telco is what you should be doing year around, thus Digi has managed to up its game by hitting more than half of nationwide population for its 4G LTE network – on paper this translates to 80 major cities and secondary towns at 60% of nationwide population coverage. Though their definition of what 4G LTE speeds are, could baffle many.

Everyone hates ninja charges. So imagine the public outcry on November 2 when local daily Berita Harian published an exposé on how Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) was going to incur a surcharge of RM5 to each customer who chooses to receive their monthly bills through the post instead of through TM’s e-billing, come January 2016.
Digi Music Freedom lets you stream music on your smart phones with zero data charges. Now they have added Apple Music and it joins their current extensive music list which include Spotify, Deezer, KKBox, Rdio, Raku, JOOX, Tidal and Guvera.
Digi was having some network issues recently that caused disruption of calls and data services. At the moment, Digi has updated that all services have been restored fully and as a gesture of goodwill, Digi is offering 500MB free data to all of its postpaid and prepaid customers. To redeem this data offer, you would need to activate it by today (11:59PM 13th November) and it will be valid for 24 hours from the point of activation.
Playing with Pandora’s box has its ramifications and once you release statements/claims, you’d better be ready to face your critics. Following the onslaught of who’s the “best”, “widest” and “fastest” 4G LTE network, Maxis aims to put this issue to bed by releasing company data on how they classify their 4G LTE network. Moreover, the green coloured telco has also proposed to have a forum with two of its competitors to talk about the state of 4G LTE in Malaysia.

If you love listening to music, Maxis is extending its free Spotify Premium subscription offer for its MaxisONE customers. Originally priced at RM14.90/month, the ad-free subscription is offered to all Maxis customers at RM9.99/month. But if you’re a MaxisONE Plan 128/158/188 customer, you can activate the premium option for free of charge.
The world is full of people who would love to get their hands on your private information; with hacks and identity theft at an all-time high, you’re never sure if your info will truly be safe. That extends to any messaging service, be it Whatsapp, Facebook chat and the like, you don’t know if the data flow is secure.
That’s where Celcom’s Zipit Chat comes in, being the most secure communications app you’ll ever lay your eyes on.
The reason? It’s because it uses Military-Grade AES256 Encryption.
Whenever we face any technical issues, social media is probably the easiest way to get help. Most service providers are able to respond to your complaints via Facebook and Twitter, saving you time from calling their customer support hotline.
Before making a complaint, TM wants you to ensure that you’re communicating with the right channel. As of late, a couple of fake social accounts misrepresenting TM have cropped up online.
Last month, two telcos made bold claims to have managed to hit at least 50% population coverage for 4G LTE – Digi (50%) and Maxis (55%). Issuing the who’s better statements within a short period, the two have been bitten by a bug to prove who has the true widest 4G LTE network. Question is, when telcos claim to have the widest coverage would you gauge it based on population percentile or percentage of coverage areas? Who sets the standards? And most important of all, does it matter?
