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.
For many, YouTube has become the source of video entertainment because of how convenient it is to use on-the-go and the wealth of content that gets uploaded to it.

This is where YouTube Go comes in with the goal of alleviating some of these data consumption concerns.

YouTube is powerful. People sink hours and hours of their lives into this platform daily for entertainment, information and distraction. It’s also an easy way for parents to keep their children occupied when they’re busy with work.
But how sure are you that the videos your child might find on YouTube are safe for their consumption? Well, I did some digging and it turns out that even the most innocent of searches can lead you to some truly disturbing content.
