Following Maxis’ move to upgrade their MaxisONE and SurfMore 50 plans with more quota, the competition continues to shake things up. Celcom has announced an even higher postpaid plan with larger quota while Digi has introduced a new plan (sort of) with more data for the weekends. Not to be left out, U Mobile has also extended its P70 Hero postpaid’s extra 8GB promo until the end of 2016.
So how do the new plans stack up? Read on for our full comparison.
Celcom FIRST Platinum
Just to recap, the new FIRST Platinum at RM150/month offers 18GB of data which is split with 9GB for all time use and 9GB for the weekends. It also gets unlimited calls and SMS, along with additional perks including 1 year iflix subscription and a one-time access to Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge. Like the rest of its FIRST postpaid offering, you can also carry forward unused data up to 9GB to the following month.
Digi Postpaid 80
For Digi, the new Postpaid 80 appears to be a direct hit on Celcom’s FIRST Gold postpaid plans that offers 10GB of data at RM80/month. Unlike Celcom’s 50-50 split, the Digi plan offers 7GB for all time use and 3GB for the weekends. On the plus side, Digi does not segregate your weekend data further so you are free to use the full 3GB quota on a single weekend. Essentially, the Postpaid 80 plan is the same old Postpaid 78 (More Voice & SMS) with the RM2 for 3GB weekend data add-on. Calls are also unlimited while SMS is unlimited only to 3 numbers on Digi.
