Maxis reduces monthly mobile internet plan rates

Posted:  January 8, 2012   By:    19 comments   

Maxis has finally revealed its new reduced monthly mobile internet plans. Just recently, most Maxis subscribers with mobile internet plans were bumped with higher data quota for free. The most recent we’ve seen is existing 500MB subscribers at RM58/month are upgraded to 1.5GB/month.

Comparing the new rates with the previous one, the 500MB and 3GB plans are reduced by RM20. The 1.5GB option is currently missing form the table but there’s a new 1GB option at RM48/month. Another plan that’s missing is the 6GB option at RM98/month. Overall, the reductions are pretty good which saves you RM240/year.

Maxis still charges excess fee if you exceed your monthly quota but the rates are now cheaper at 30sen per MB. Previously it was charged at 10sen per 10KB which is about RM10 per MB. For more information, head over to Maxis Mobile Internet section.

So it's kinda bad news for iPhone plan subscriber isn't it? Previously they allocated RM50 for data from the iPhone plan 1.


This only applies to postpaid. is currently unaccessible, and the *100# menu still shows the old rates for data. Hopefully it will be refreshed tomorrow.

I did complain to @MaxisListens thru twitter about the stupidly expensive mobile internet charges. Didn't think they'd listen. If it applies to Hotlink then I'll be sending a thank you tweet to them!


    not only u complaint it.. everyone complaining it to maxis

Looks like M feeling the heat. I am porting all my families prepaid lines to U. 500MB at RM28… M still bloodsucker..
