ookyo, the hybrid mobile service by Maxis has just upgraded its high-speed internet quota. In case you didn’t know, ookyo offers unlimited internet access for a selection of apps and for other usages, the plan originally came with 3GB high-speed data and 500MB of basic internet.
Maxis’s fully digital sub-brand, ookyo, is now offering an offer that you can’t resist. In a bid to get more people to experience its unlimited internet experience, you can get a free SIM and one month of usage for only RM1. Actually, RM1.06 including GST to be exact.
Mobile data on smartphones are crucial these days and telcos around the world are offering more data to keep up with rising demand. Over the years, the cost of data has come down significantly while telcos have continued with their expansion of their 4G coverage.
So which telco has the best network in the country? If you’re curious, OpenSignal has published its latest findings in its State of Mobile Networks: Malaysia report that’s dated October 2017.

The 2nd phase of the MRT Line 1 is now open and this includes an underground section that goes through the heart of KL city. When Digi invited us for a 4G Underground MRT challenge earlier this week, we thought why not we test out 4 of our big telcos in Malaysia? So we did.
U Mobile will be ending its networking sharing and alliance agreement with Maxis which they had signed back in 2011. This agreement allowed U Mobile users to roam on Maxis’ 3G and 2G network where U Mobile’s own 4G/3G coverage isn’t available. The termination will be done in phases over 18 months and it is expected to be completed by 27 December 2018.
It has been 4 years since 4G LTE was rolled out in Malaysia. It offered faster speeds and enabled Malaysians to do more on their smartphones.
Among the major players in Malaysia, Maxis is the first telco to offer 4G LTE and they have increased its 4G coverage footprint to cover 88% of the population. We recently caught up with Morten Bangsgaard, the Chief Technology Officer at Maxis to find out more about their network and where it’s heading.
Postpaid plans in Malaysia are getting cheaper with competitive telcos dishing out more data for your money. Apart from cost, another crucial factor to consider is network quality. What’s the point of getting loads of data on the cheap if you can’t use it when you needed it the most?
4G LTE was introduced in Malaysia back in 2013 and currently we have 4 major LTE telcos – Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile. To find out which network is best, OpenSignal has just published a State of Mobile Networks report specifically for Malaysia. The findings were derived from a data sample size of close to 40 million that were contributed by 21,109 OpenSignal app users in Malaysia between 1 December 2015 to 29 February 2016.
Good numbers and positive results are always nice to see. Investors lap this up but customers not so much. When we pay for a service we can get really demanding and it’s fair to act accordingly because we’re paying.

If you’ve been living under a rock or simply don’t keep up to date with the current times, the next installation of the Star Wars series is about to go on screens worldwide on the third week of December – opening premier dates will be region specific.
Since Malaysians will get their premier screening on the 17th of December, Maxis wants to give back to its customers through this “contest” of sorts, handing you two tickets to watch the show on opening night.
