Maxis begins offering pre-paid 4G tariffs

14 Jan 2014

Malaysian mobile network operator Maxis has announced the launch of pre-paid 4G services under its ‘Hotlink’ brand name. The cellco revealed that customers looking to take advantage of the higher speeds offered by its LTE network will need to purchase a Hotlink SIM pack for MYR8.80 (USD2.70) and do a 4G SIM swap at any Maxis Centre nationwide. Following that, subscribers can either opt for a 1GB or 3GB monthly mobile internet pass, which cost MYR30 and MYR68, respectively. As part of a launch offer, meanwhile, customers will receive 50% more data allowance when purchasing a monthly pass between now and 28 February 2014.

Dushyan Vaithiyanathan, Maxis’ Head of Consumer Business said of the new tariffs: ‘Following the launch of Hotlink in September last year, we have taken a step further to enhance our pre-paid customers’ mobile experience by enabling them to surf the internet at even faster speeds.’
