The war for 4G LTE supremacy continues, this time it has spilled over to the prepaid sector as Maxis‘ Hotlink has introduced their latest plan, Hotlink FAST, which is supposedly designed for the 4G LTE Millennial user. Well, they certainly weren’t kidding when they said it was designed specifically for the 4G LTE user.
Just recently there are stronger calls for telcos to make broadband more affordable for all. In a bid to make it more accessible with greater value, Hotlink has slashed its new Tablet Plan SIM pack from RM60 to just RM30. It comes preloaded with 1GB of data and best of all, it is valid for 365 days.
While this is good for those with very minimal data usage, the additional data top ups have been reduced as well. Initially priced at RM30 per GB, you can now top up 1GB extra at RM25 which is valid for 60 days. For greater value, you can top up 2GB for RM45 and this would be valid for 365 days. With a year long validity, you can top up more without the fear of wastage that’s usually the case for monthly validity plans.
Hotlink has just partnered up with some of the nations’ more popular online game publishers to launch the Game Credits Top Up facility which allows gamers to top up their games using Hotlink Top Up Tickets.
Partnering up with publishers Asiasoft, CIB, Garena, Cubinet and IAHGames, users who are already Hotlink customers will get additional benefits like in-game items for League of Legends, EA FIFA ONLINE 3, Blackshot and extra in-game cash for IAH Games titles like Granado Espada and CounterStrike.
