The Maxis SurfMore postpaid offering is one of the practical postpaid plans for those that uses more mobile internet data rather than making calls and SMS. It comes with a choice of SurfMore 50 which offers 2GB data for RM50/month and SurfMore 75 which offers 5GB of data for RM75/month.
Any calls or SMS made are charged separately in a pay as you go model. For those who actually do make quite a number of voice calls or SMS, Maxis is now introducing an add-on Voice and SMS option that offers bundled talk time or SMS at a discounted monthly fee for SurfMore customers.
The More Voice add-on of RM12/month gives you 120 minutes of voice calls to any local networks which is equivalent of 10 sen/minute. If you text a lot to non-Maxis numbers, there’s More SMS of RM6/month which bundles 120 SMS to any network at the rate of 5sen/SMS. The normal ad-hoc call rates for SurfMore plans are 12sen/min for Maxis numbers and 20sen/min for other networks. SMS are normally charged at 5sen/SMS within Maxis and 15sen/SMS to other networks. This gives substantial savings especially if you make calls to non-Maxis numbers.
On another note, if you have a family member that needs a low entry data plan, Maxis is also having a SurfMore 30 supplementary line that offers 1GB of data for RM30/month. It also includes Free 900 minutes of talk time and 1,500 SMS within the family subscription numbers.
