Internet connectivity is crucial for any business these days. If your company has a need for speed, Maxis has revamped its Business Fibre offering with speeds up to 100Mbps. For greater reliability, it’s also backed by a zero downtime proposition.
To ensure 24/7 uptime, Maxis is including a wireless backup connection which you can use when your fixed connectivity is unavailable. The Business Fibre plans are available in either dynamic or fixed IP, but the zero downtime feature is only available on the dynamic IP package. Similar to its home fibre broadband plans, speeds on Maxis are symmetrical, so you get the same upload speeds as your downloads.
Depending on your business requirements, Business Fibre on dynamic IP starts from 8Mbps at RM196.20/month and it goes all the way up to RM788/month for its highest 100Mbps plan.
For those requiring fixed IP, the plan starts at RM188/month for 4Mbps and it tops off at RM971.60/month for 100Mbps. If you need more IP addresses, it will cost you RM500 per year for five. For greater value, Maxis is offering a slight discount on your broadband fees if you sign up together with MaxisONE Business or FlexiShare postpaid plans that comes with unlimited free calls within Malaysia. All plans are tied with a 24-month contract and there’s a one-time installation cost of RM200 which will be charged to your first bill.
UPDATE: Maxis has reached out to us to clarify that users no longer need to call 1512 to activate the wireless broadband. This means the backup wireless connectivity will kick in automatically for a true zero downtime experience. They have also rounded up the monthly subscription to the next ringgit.
The new Maxis Business Fibre 100Mbps plan is cheaper than their previous highest offering at 32Mbps. The 32Mbps fibre broadband option used to cost RM498/month for dynamic IP and RM988/month for fixed IP. The backup wireless broadband service is a nice add-on to ensure business continuity
but do note that it only works when your broadband service is down and you would need to call Maxis HelpDesk at 1-800-82-1512 to activate it.
