Prepaid is getting even competitive in Malaysia as telcos are dishing out more data with free unlimited features. Just recently, U Mobile had introduced its latest prepaid offering that offers unlimited data for music, social, instant messaging plus extra data for video streaming.
If you’re looking for a different network, Hotlink has responded with their new RED prepaid plan. Instead of offering free 999GB data just for Facebook, the new plan comes with free non-stop internet for either social and chat apps.
Hotlink is now dishing out virtually unlimited data for Facebook with its latest Free Fast Facebook offer for a year. This is applicable if you pick up a new Hotlink FAST or Hotlink Super starter pack and activate an eligible internet pass by end of this year.
Mobile data has become more crucial for Malaysians. According to Maxis’ Q3 2017 report, an average Maxis customer uses an average of 7.5GB/month and over at East Malaysia (Sabah/Sarawak), it’s a staggering average of 12GB/month. They added that data traffic on their 4G LTE network has tripled over the past year and it is expected to rise even further.
You can enjoy more free data with Hotlink’s new Happy Hour offering. On top of its current Hotlink Fast Prepaid’s Free 8GB weekend offer, Hotlink subscribers can redeem of 1GB data that’s valid for 1 hour every day. That’s 30GB of extra high-speed data each month.
In addition to its free 8GB 4G weekend data, Hotlink Fast Prepaid is now offering free calls to 5 friendz. This is valid for 5 mobile numbers on Hotlink/Maxis network and if you’re on the new Hotlink Fast Prepaid plan.
Hotlink has released what it claims to be its biggest internet pass yet. For RM50/month, you can get 17GB of internet plus 100 minutes of calls to any network.
Maxis is now turning its attention to prepaid with their most generous data offering yet. The Hotlink FAST prepaid is now upgraded with a whopping 8GB of free high-speed data each month. This is offered for life and it is more than any other prepaid in Malaysia.
Beginning 1st January 2016, all prepaid reloads in Malaysia will be sold without the extra 6% charge. This is in line with the directive to exempt prepaid reloads from GST. It doesn’t mean that prepaid is free from GST, as it will be charged upon usage, instead of being paid upfront.
Fortunately, the government will be offering GST rebates as announced during Budget 2016. To address concerns, MCMC has published the full details ahead of its implementation on new year’s day
