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, the prepaid brand under Maxis is offering high speed 4G LTE data for cheap and you get to enjoy a gig of data from as low as RM5/day. This is part of its November promotion where you get to subscribe 1GB of mobile internet at RM5 for 24 hours or RM11 for 72 hours validity.
This makes it perfect if you plan on using your smart phone as a WiFi hotspot or you have a sudden need to watch HD YouTube videos back to back on 4G. If you’re a #Hotlink subscriber, speeds will be throttled to 64kbps once you’ve finished your quota and there’s no excess charge. For other Hotlink prepaid plans, the expensive pay per use rates would kick in, so it is advisable that you have an active mobile internet plan at all times.
The 1GB internet promotion is valid from 17th November until 30th November. You can subscribe to as many passes as you wish if you need more data in a single day. To activate, just dial *100*2# and select FAAAST Internet Promo II. Of course, make sure you have a 4G LTE smart phone and a 4G activated SIM before subscribing.

Hotlink, Maxis’s prepaid brand today has revealed its new Bagus Plan that offers competitive rates. To get started, they are offering the starter pack at RM5 which doesn’t come with pre-loaded talk time and credit.
What’s new is its Bagus 5 Pass which offers lowered rates upon activation. For just RM5, you get to enjoy as low as 12 sen/min for Maxis to Maxis calls and 18 sen/min to call other networks. For SMS, Bagus 5 Pass charges 1 sen/SMS to Maxis and 10 sen/SMS to other networks. As limited time promo, the Bagus 5 Pass comes with free 10MB of data.
Upon activation of this Bagus 5 Pass, the RM5 is not burnt but instead transferred to a “Bagus 5 account” which is utilised for actual talk time at reduced rates. After finishing this credit, you will be charged the normal rate. You can only activate one Bagus 5 Pass per day and it is valid for up to a maximum of 3 days. To activate, just dial *100#, select Hotlink specials and select Bagus Pass.
For Hotlink users from other plans, you can change over to Bagus Plan by dialling *108*21#. RM1 fee will be charged for upgrading.
Hotlink has finally introduced a daily blackberry prepaid package for RM2.50/day. This comes shortly after DiGi’s introduction of its RM2/day daily blackberry service.
For the extra 50 sen, you’ll get a generous 200MB/day data usage as compared to DiGi’s 100MB. To activate, just dial *100#, select Internet and BlackBerry Internet Service. The daily package is renewed automatically.
Similar to DiGi and XpaX, this is only applicable within Blackberry Service inclusive of Email, IM, Social Networking and web browsing. If you use the typical UNET APN or for internet tethering, you will be charged separately.
