If you’re tired of feeling misled with “weekend-only” internet or “off-peak” data, then Celcom’s revamped Xpax Prepaid may be music to your ears. With its #NoKelentong call, things are now more simplified and straightforward.
“Kelentong” in Bahasa Melayu loosely means “cheat” or “mislead.” Now, I’m not sure if Celcom is admitting that they’ve been giving customers a roundabout all this while, or suggesting that competitors are. The messaging is a little dubious in my opinion. Regardless, keeping things simple is a win for consumers.
In a nutshell, Xpax #NoKelentong (yes, this is actually a product name) gives you 10GB of basic internet (64kbps) and an additional 10GB of Facebook data. Before you cry “64Kbps???” this is adequate for social updates, instant messaging and light browsing. 10GB is plenty for basic tasks. Note that the line needs to be active for you to quality for the freebies.
Now, here comes the cream. Unlike its predecessor – Xpax Turbo, allocated monthly high-speed data does not come with restrictions. Meaning, they’ve scrapped “Burung Hantu” or weekend data quota, or odd off-peak data. You have full access to all your data, anytime, anywhere. High-speed data here refers to either 3G or 4G speeds.
Data plans are straightforward. They start from MYR3/day for 1GB, or if you prefer, grab the monthly plans which make more sense in the long run. There’s MYR30/month that gives you 5GB, while MYR50/month gives you a whopping 10GB.
Unlimited Yonder Music is bundled for free.
If you need a little bit more, Xpax #NoKelentong offers add-ons for MYR1/day. Select between unlimited calls to any network for one contact; Late Night Internet (1AM-7AM) with 1GB; or 1GB of YouTube data. Not quite Video-Onz, but at least there’s an option.
Alternatively, there’s a weekly option of MYR7/week that gives you unlimited free calls to 10 numbers; Late Night Internet worth 10GB; or 10GB of YouTube data.
A starter pack costs MYR10 and it comes with 200MB of high-speed data and MYR6 of credit. Call rates are 30sen/min, while the SMS rate is 15sen each.
