Although prepaid plans now offer great value, postpaid plans still remain a popular option as you don’t have to worry about monthly reloads and pass activation. Similar to prepaid, there are various postpaid plans available in Malaysia that cater to different consumers. To help you decide on which postpaid plan to get, we will highlight the best “unlimited”, best value for money high-speed data, best low monthly commitment, best data roaming and also the best family line options.
Best “Unlimited” Postpaid Plan in Malaysia
For users who want to download and stream as much as possible on their phones without worrying about running out of data, here are a couple of “unlimited” recommendations. Similar to prepaid, these plans typically come with a fair usage policy (FUP) where your speeds will be throttled down once you’ve hit the “fair” limit. Thankfully, most of these “unlimited” postpaid plans come with a higher FUP threshold which is to be expected when you’re paying more than prepaid.
Celcom Mega 98 Unlimited
Celcom Mega 98 Unlimited at RM98/month offers unlimited data that has a speed cap of 10Mbps. The plan also comes with unlimited calls to all networks and 10GB of hotspot quota each month. SMS are not included and are charged at 20 sen each. At the moment, they are offering an online exclusive rebate where you can get RM30 x 6 months and RM20 off on the 4th month if you sign up online.
For this plan, Celcom didn’t specify a hard quota for its fair usage policy (FUP) but it is mentioned that they may at its absolute discretion manage your allocated bandwidth to ensure fair access to all Celcom customers on the same network with or without prior notice. You can learn more about Celcom’s postpaid offering here.
Digi Infinite 55 and 75
Next on the list is Digi Postpaid Infinite 55 and 75 which are currently offered for a limited time. The Infinite 55 plan offers unlimited internet that’s speed capped at 6Mbps, unlimited calls and 10GB of hotspot data. If you need faster speeds, Infinite 75 offers the same perks but with a higher speed cap of 12Mbps. SMS are not included and it costs 10 sen each.
If you’re willing to sign up for the Inifnite 55 or 75 plan with a 12-month contract, Digi is bundling free Freedom add-ons. You can choose one of the following:
- 10GB (Postpaid Infinite 55) or 20GB (Postpaid Infinite 75) of highspeed quota
- Unlimited High-Speed Social (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok)
- Unlimited High-Speed Video Streaming (Netflix, YouTube, Astro Go, Viu, Unifi PlayTV and Daily Motion

According to the T&C, the Infinite 55 and 75 plans have an FUP of 600GB, which is still pretty generous.
Digi Postpaid 150 with Unlimited Add-on
If you prefer an unlimited postpaid plan with no speed cap, you can consider Digi Postpaid 150 and add-on Unlimited Internet & Hotspot. This offer is somewhat similar to the old Digi Postpaid Infinite 150 which was introduced several years ago.

As part of its current Juara Internet special promo, the plan now offers 45GB of extra quota and RM15 monthly rebate for the first 12 months. So essentially, you’re getting 135GB of high-speed data for RM135/month.

According to the T&C, the unlimited internet and unlimited hotspot add-on has an FUP of 999GB which is definitely more than enough for most hardcore data users.

Other things to look out for before subscribing
Before signing up for a plan, do note that coverage is also an important factor to consider. There’s no point to have the cheapest postpaid plan if you can’t make full use of it due to poor reception and network congestion in your area.
If you’re planning to switch to another telco on a contract, you could give it a try by getting a prepaid SIM. You can also use third party tools such as Opensignal to get a better idea of each telco’s download speed and service availability in your area.
