In a media event this morning, Celcom has reemphasised their most premium postpaid yet with its new FIRST Platinum plan. This is the highest tier in the FIRST postpaid family, offering the most amount of data with unlimited calls and SMS at RM150/month.
To recap, FIRST Platinum comes bundled with 18GB of mobile data with 9GB for all time use and another 9GB allocated just for the weekends. For the weekend data, it is split with 2.25GB for every weekend in a month. If you can’t finish it, FIRST Platinum allows you to carry forward up to 9GB (from your all time quota) to the following month.
As an added bonus, all FIRST Platinum customers will get unlimited entertainment with free 12-month access for Yonder Music and iflix. For secure communication, ZipitChat is also offered for free for 1 year. Similar to FIRST Gold, the FIRST Platinum plan is offered for a limited time until 31 May 2016.
As Celcom’s most premium customer, you’ll get a dedicated priority customer service hotline at 1881 along with a selection of preferred mobile numbers to choose from. Topping the experience off is an exclusive access to Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge, but do note that this is limited to the first 1,000 new subscribers with a one-time entry only.
If you’re a frequent traveller, FIRST Platinum gives you unparalleled roaming access with WONDEROAM. Their international roaming list supports 165 countries with 2 telco partners in each market. The data roaming plans start from RM38/day or RM138/week which includes unlimited calls and SMS.
To entice those who are still clinging to other telcos, Celcom is giving away a Perodua Axia every 2 weeks. This is open to all new subscribers including port-ins, and the giveaway is running until mid July 2016.
For connectivity in the home, Celcom is also extending its Home Fibre Broadband offering to FIRST Platinum customers. As revealed earlier, Celcom is offering 10Mbps Fibre Broadband at RM145/month for selected areas in the Klang Valley. As a Celcom FIRST Gold/Platinum customer, you can enjoy 50% off on monthly subscriptions for the first 6 months, bringing down the monthly fee to just RM72.50/month (before GST). The plan is tied with a 24-month contract and it has a free router bundled in. You can make calls with it at RM0.08 per minute and we are told that a fixed phone is not included. They probably thought it was pointless since you can enjoy unlimited calls on your mobile postpaid plan.
