If you’re looking for a new laptop for WFH or online learning, Maxis is now offering the Huawei MateBook D 15 on contract. Retailing for RM2,999, the Huawei laptop can be yours for as low as RM9/month with a Maxis Fibre Broadband contract.
The laptop is offered via Zerolution, a 24-month installment programme that’s charged together with your monthly bill. The monthly repayment varies on the Maxis broadband plan that you’re on. The lowest RM9/month instalment amount is applicable to the highest 800Mbps plan, while 500Mbps subscribers can get it for RM29/month.
If you’re on the lower tier plans of 300Mbps and below, including Maxis Home 4G WiFi, you’ll have to pay between RM109-RM129 per month for the 24-month contract duration. If you’re on Maxis’ 30Mbps plan, the instalment plan (RM129/month) isn’t worth it as the total 24-month repayment (RM3,096) costs more than the full retail price of the laptop.
To recap, below are the monthly subscription for Maxis’ home fibre broadband plans:
- 30Mbps – RM89/month
- 100Mbps – RM129/month
- 300Mbps – RM149/month
- 500Mbps – RM219/month
- 800Mbps – RM299/month
All plans are bundled with a WiFi 6 router and Maxis is including Mesh WiFi nodes for 500Mbps and 800Mbps customers.
