REDtone, the other WiMAX operator which operates in East Malaysia is also doing a Chinese New Year Promotion for its Home Broadband packages. From now until 28th February 2011, they are giving 1 month free subscription, free 12 months modem rental, free activation waiver (worth RM100) and a 7 days money back guarantee.
Plans and packages wise, they are pretty much the same as before with their entry Home-Lite going at RM98/month with 1Mbps download speeds and 384kbps upload. The monthly quota for their Home-Lite is 25GB/month. More details on the promotion at their website.
REDtone, another WiMAX operator has quietly launched its portable USB WiMAX offering. The portable USB WiMAX modem comes with 2 plans, the Flexi50 and Flexi80.
Flexi50 offers 512kbps download and 128kbps upload with 8GB quota at RM50/month, while Flexi88 offers 1Mbps download and 384kbps upload with 15GB quota at RM88/month. The packages looks similar with the recent P1 WiMAX Wiggy postpaid plans of WiGGY 59 and WiGGY 89.
In Peninsular Malaysia, we’re already familar with P1 WiMAX, AMAX and the yet to appear YTL Comms when it comes to WiMAX. Over the East Malaysia, there’s one player called REDtone WiMAX which not many people have heard of.
We’ve blogged before when REDtone was launched and their offering was the most expensive among all the WiMAX players with RM138/month for a mere 1Mbps connectivity. This could be due to less competition or perhaps higher cost of set up in East Malaysia compared to Peninsular.
Now, REDtone has revised its rates to make it more attractive by offering FREE WiMAX CPE Modem Rental and FREE Activation fee until 31st May 2010. Their rates have been revised as well from as low as RM98/month for 1Mbps.
