Not enough data? Maxis hears you. Several days ago, the green telco announced a shocking double-up free upgrade (for life!) for all its MaxisONE plan (MOP) customers. That’s 1.5 million customers who will be enjoying up to 50GB a month, at no cost.
So what’s with this obsession with data? Less than 12 months ago, we were happily plodding at 3-5GBs per month. Blame it on higher speed, better networks. Point your fingers at OTT services like Spotify, iflix, Netflix. Blame it on 4K and 360 videos on YouTube and Facebook. We’re consuming data. A lot of it. Everyday.
And apparently, we’re doing a lot of video consumption and mobile entertainment on weekends too. And hence, Maxis is also throwing in double data for free on weekends too.
That’s not all though. All MaxisONE Share supplementary lines will also get upgraded to 2x more data, at no additional cost.
Here’s how it breaks down:
As an example, MOP 98 will get 10GB of all day data monthly, plus 10GB of 4G weekend data. Assuming there’s a MaxisONE Share Line, that line will get 5GB all-day data (that’s can be shared into the DataPool), and 5GB of weekend data.
The top run MOP 188 plan has plenty to gain. 25GB of all-day data, and 25GB of 4G weekend data. That’s a whopping 50GB of data in total. A month.
Note that 4G weekend data is not shareable in the DataPool.
The Power of One
On a separate note, Maxis is shouting about their RM1 4G smartphone deals via its Power of 1 RM1 sale. If you’re a current MOP customer, you can choose from a wide range of smartphones including the fantastic Huawei P9, Samsung J7 and J5, and OPPO F1. You can also opt to pick up a Pocket WiFi, Google Chromecast or Home WiFi extenders for just RM1. Want more info about Power of One? Head over to the Power of One page.
Do note that the RM1 smartphone deal comes with a 24-month contract, while the Pocket WiFi plan comes with a 12-month contract.
