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.
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.
For those who need a data-only SIM for WiFi sharing or for home broadband, Maxis has just revised its Wireless Broadband offering with their MaxisONE Go WiFi. These new plans offer up to 65GB of data which you can use anywhere with no weekday/weekend restrictions.
For those who don’t want to get the HTC U11 outright, Maxis is now offering the squeezable flagship smartphone on contract. Officially priced at RM3,099 in Malaysia, the HTC U11 from Maxis is offered from as low as RM1,499 on standard contract or RM70/month with its Zerolution program.
4G can be considered mainstream in Malaysia. Most major towns in Malaysia are covered and most new smartphones launched in the past 2 years have 4G LTE support as standard. However, there’s one thing that limits users from enjoying the full potential of 4G connectivity and that’s the tiny SIM card.
Surprisingly, there are a lot of Malaysians using newer smartphones but they are still stuck with the old 3G SIM from years ago. To entice its subscribers to make the switch, Maxis is kicking off their RM1 million 3G SIM Swap campaign and yes, that’s RM1,000,000 cash up for grabs.
The Galaxy S8/S8+ are now available for pre-order through our local telcos in Malaysia. To sweeten the deal, they are also bundling over RM900 worth of freebies as announced by Samsung Malaysia.
