Maxis is currently having a promo for its all-in-one MaxisONE Prime offering. It was launched last month with a starting price of RM367/month and it gives you true unlimited high-speed data for both the home and while on the go.
As part of its Year End Sale promo, Maxis is offering a free speed upgrade where you can get 50Mbps at the price of a 30Mbps plan.
TM isn’t the only one dishing out price cuts for its broadband plans. If you’re looking for an alternative, Maxis is also slashing its MaxisONE Home broadband plans to as low as RM119/month as part of their year end sales.
With Malaysian families getting more connected than ever, Maxis has introduced an interesting new product that provides unlimited data for the entire household. With MaxisONE Prime, you can get a fixed fibre broadband plus mobile postpaid line which gives you unlimited calls, SMS and data which can be extended to 4 family members.
We recently received a tip that Maxis will throttle peer-to-peer traffic on their Home Broadband Plans between 8PM to 2AM daily. To confirm this, we contacted Maxis and we’re told that this wasn’t the case as all customers should be able to enjoy full speeds throughout the day.
Planning on getting a new broadband for your home or office? Whether it is Streamyx, UniFi, Time or Maxis Fibre Broadband, Shopback is giving you a month’s subscription as cashback. That’s up to RM1,488 in cash back into your pocket.
Maxis has just revamped its MaxisONE Home Fibre broadband which now carries a lower subscription fee across the board. On top of that, they are offering free iflix subscription for life plus RM1 add-ons for Chromecast and WiFi Extenders on their higher plans.
Instead of lowering their prices, Maxis is now focusing on delivering the best set up and experience for your home. Their promise? A fibre broadband that starts right and stays right.
Maxis today has unveiled its revamped Wireless broadband packages with increased quota, more choices of devices and uncapped download speeds up to 42Mbps. Compared to its previous offering, the new Maxis wireless broadband comes with split data quota divided by peak times and off peak times. The off-peak times often take the bulk of the data quota which is limited to 2AM to 8AM in the morning.
While this seems to be an unfair deal, looking at the cost per GB for on-peak times of 8AM to 2AM doesn’t seem that bad after all. Starting with RM48/month plan for 1.5GB on-peak is equivalent to its previous offering but it comes with an extra quota for off peak hours. Moving up to the highest plan of RM158/month (RM148/month for Maxis subscribers), you’ll get 12GB for on-peak and a staggering 36GB for off peak which gives a massive 48GB in total. In other words, looking at on-peak itself, the subscription rates are pretty on-par to its previous offering but with an added extra bonus quota to download larger files during off-peak hours. To utilise this, we reckon you would need to schedule your downloads while you’re asleep.
Maxis has revised its Home Internet Fibre (FTTH) broadband service which now offers 10Mbps, 20Mbps and 30Mbps option. The baseline 10Mbps plan is now priced higher at RM148/month for Maxis subscribers who have a minimum monthly commitment of RM48/month. Non-Maxis subscribers would need to pay RM168/month for 10Mbps.
For those with the need for speed, they are offering faster 20Mbps and 30Mbps at RM198/month and RM248/month respectively. Non-Maxis subscribers would have to fork out more, almost up to RM50 extra for the 30Mbps which is a carrot for customers to port their mobile service with them.
Apart from internet service, they are giving 100 minutes of calls to Maxis mobile numbers and 100 minutes of IDD calls to selected countries on the 10Mbps option. For each higher plan (20Mbps and 30Mbps), you’ll get additional 100 minutes for each notch higher. As usual, all calls to Maxis fixed lines are free.
The good news is that all plans have unlimited quota until further notice and they are still having the RM200 standard installation fee waived.

In terms of speed, it varies on coverage and device. The bundled modem in the Starter Kit isn’t a HSPA+ variant and supports up to 7.2Mbps. It comes covered with a 12 months warranty. To get the most out of Maxis HSPA+ network, you would need a HSPA+ modem which is sold at RM280 at selected Maxis centres.
