UPDATE: SurfMore bundling of Galaxy Note II compared with other telco offerings.
After introducing its voice-centric TalkMore plans, Maxis now introduces new SurfMore 50 and SurfMore 75 which offers a rather generous mobile internet at affordable rates. SurfMore 50 offers 2GB of data quota for just RM50/month while SurfMore 75 offers a huge 5GB quota for RM75/month. Just like its rival DG Smart Plan, the month subscription is only for mobile internet, with calls and SMS charged separately.
The new plans are actually a replacement of the earlier introduced Internet Value 50 & 75 plans and Maxis has given extra 33-43% extra data boost for the same subscription fee. The pay as you use rates for calls/sms remains the same with voice calls being charged at 12sen/min within Maxis and 20sen/min to other networks. For SMS, it is 5sen/SMS within Maxis and 15sen/SMS to others. Maxis also gives discounts on the monthly subscription fee for those that uses a lot with 25% off for usage above RM150 and 100% off if you use more than RM250.
Head after the break for the full details.
The devices are available for bundling on both SurfMore 50 & 75 plans with options of either 12 months and 24 months. For those who want to get a Note II on Maxis, the earlier bundling plans all come with committed voice plans. If you’re the type that uses mobile data more without much calls needed, these plans would be a better alternative.
UPDATE: There’s an upfront advance payment of RM250 required for 12 months contract and RM1,000 for 24 months contract. Advance payment will be rebated back to your bill across 5 months. For Maxis One Club members, the advance payment is exempted.
