MaxisONE Prime is a fibre broadband plus mobile postpaid combo that offers unlimited internet for both home and on the go. Previously, it was quite expensive since it’s only available for their highest MaxisONE 188 plan.
To make this combo more accessible to the masses, Maxis has refreshed its MaxisONE Prime offering where you can get it on their entry-level MaxisONE 98 plan. Now you can enjoy unlimited home broadband and unlimited mobile data from as little as RM187/month on Maxis. That’s 50% cheaper than what they used to offer last year.
UPDATE: TM has responded to our concerns. Find their full response below.
Malaysia has been through quite the fibre renaissance recently. Spearheaded by the nation’s largest fibre broadband provider — Telekom Malaysia — Unifi‘s Turbo initiative ushered in a new age of fibre for the country. Not only were ISPs across the board providing faster speeds than ever before, we’ve also seen a considerable reduction in price-per-Mbps so a high-speed fibre connection is now more affordable than ever too.
But, in the midst of this wonderful news, was fa big messy ball of yarn that was Unifi’s plan for rolling out the Unifi Turbo speed upgrades. At first, we were led to believe that this messy situation was inevitable, but subsequent fibre revamps by other ISPs like Maxis Fibre and TIME Fibre proved that this was a problem that was entirely avoidable. What went wrong?
ookyo, Maxis’ digital sub-brand has bumped up its high-speed data offering from 5GB to 8GB. This is offered as part of its year-end promo and you still get to enjoy unlimited usage for four of your favourite apps.
