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.
There’s lots of excitement in the mobile space in the first quarter for 2016. Malaysian telcos were dishing out competitive postpaid plans with lots of data, while TM prepares to make an entry with its new 4G service.
Despite the aggressive price war, Maxis remains steady according to its latest Q1 2016 financial update.
Maxis has just added two new services to their list of available video-on-demand library, bringing the total offerings to four. Earlier this month they had announced that they had iflix and Viu on board, now they have ErosNow and Hopster in their library.
Maxis has finally jumped on the iflix bandwagon and they are offering 2 months free subscription for both postpaid and Hotlink prepaid customers. If you love Korean series, they are also offering Viu, a video on demand service that lets you watch TV shows 8 hours after its original broadcast in South Korea.
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.
