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.
Hotlink‘s offering customers affordable daily data deals via Hotlink MU, which run from affordable chunks of data all the way to social passes to calls.
Hotlink has just revamped its mobile internet plans which now comes with more data than before. With just RM60/month, you can get up to 46GB of high-speed data plus unlimited calls to all networks.
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.
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.
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.
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.
