Maxis is now turning its attention to prepaid with their most generous data offering yet. The Hotlink FAST prepaid is now upgraded with a whopping 8GB of free high-speed data each month. This is offered for life and it is more than any other prepaid in Malaysia.
But there’s a catch. The free data is applicable for weekends only and it is split for each weekend. That means you’ll get 1GB for Saturday and another 1GB for Sunday for every single weekend. Note that the free quota is only usable when connected to their 4G network and if your line is active.
If you need more data for your daily needs, you can subscribe to one of their mobile data plans that are available in daily, weekly and monthly options. You can get 1GB/day for only RM3, while heavy users can opt for their 5GB monthly plan for only RM48/month.
Need an additional boost to your weekly/monthly plan? You can top up 150MB at RM3 or 1GB at RM12. The new enhanced Hotlink FAST starter pack costs RM10 and it comes with RM5 preloaded credit with 5 days validity. Also included is 300MB of data that’s valid for 2 days. You can also get 1GB free extra data by downloading the Hotlink Red app that’s available on iOS and Android.
In terms of rates, call are charged at 6 sen/30 sec for Activ10 numbers and 12 sen/30 sec to other local networks. SMS is charged at 1 sen each for Activ10 and 12 sen to other numbers. In addition, Hotlink FAST also comes with free social chat that offers unlimited WhatsApp, LINE, WeChat and FB Messenger at 64kbps when you finished your data quota. Existing Hotlink customers can switch to FAST prepaid via the Hotlink Red App under My Account > Change > Rate Plan. An upgrade fee of RM1 will apply.
