Prepaid is getting even competitive in Malaysia as telcos are dishing out more data with free unlimited features. Just recently, U Mobile had introduced its latest prepaid offering that offers unlimited data for music, social, instant messaging plus extra data for video streaming.
If you’re looking for a different network, Hotlink has responded with their new RED prepaid plan. Instead of offering free 999GB data just for Facebook, the new plan comes with free non-stop internet for either social and chat apps.
ookyo, the digital telco service under Maxis, offers unlimited internet for a collection of apps at RM30/month. This is great for those who primarily use their mobile data for social and music apps. However, for those who stream lots of YouTube videos might find it unappealing as watching YouTube on ookyo will utilise its normal 4GB of high-speed data quota and they only offered unlimited passes for very short durations.
If that’s holding you back, ookyo has introduced a new YouTube unlimited pass that’s valid for 30 days. On top of that, they have also revised the pricing for some of its unlimited apps and data add-on for greater value.
The world is coming online and with that, habits are changing, most notably how we purchase goods and services. In the past, you had to crowd with everyone else doing their last minute holiday shopping but now you can get practically everything you need with a few simple taps.
Malaysia’s no different and the meteoric rise of e-commerce is almost scary. But every revolution has its victims and with such a drastic shift in how people discover and purchase goods, some start to wonder what’s going to happen to all the local brick and mortar small-medium enterprises (SMEs).
Maxis has always been considered the most premium telco in Malaysia. While they have upgraded their postpaid plans in the past, other players in the market are getting more competitive by offering more data with some offering unlimited quota for less.
After almost a year since their last revamp, Maxis is finally giving its MaxisONE plans a well deserved update. On top of that, they have also removed a barrier which now enables you to fully utilise your monthly quota freely.
Maxis and its prepaid brand, Hotlink, have finally introduced carrier billing which lets you buy apps, subscribe to Apple Music and iCloud storage without having to use a payment card. Similar to Celcom, U Mobile and Digi, you can charge your purchases to your postpaid bill or by deducting your existing prepaid credit.
Looking for a new Samsung Galaxy Note FE without paying a single sen upfront? Now there’s an even better deal where you can get the device and pay nothing for it for the first 3 months on Maxis Zerolution. This translates to savings of up to RM300.
ookyo, the hybrid mobile service by Maxis has just upgraded its high-speed internet quota. In case you didn’t know, ookyo offers unlimited internet access for a selection of apps and for other usages, the plan originally came with 3GB high-speed data and 500MB of basic internet.
The highly anticipated iPhone X is finally available for pre-order today and it will be released officially in Malaysia on 24 November 2017. As usual, we have the big 4 telcos offering the latest iPhone on contract. Since the iPhone X would cost you at least RM5,149 for the base model, it is probably better to get it on a contract to enjoy substantial subsidies.
Question is, which Malaysian telco has the best plan for you? We hope to answer that with our telco comparison.

Retailing at RM3,099, Maxis is offering the flagship phablet for an incredible price from as low as RM1 with a 24-month contract. That’s a massive RM3,098 off.
