The operator is offering generous data packages for both 4G and 5G, with monthly plans starting at MYR79 (US$17) and going up to MYR199 (US$42) for up to 200GB of data. Customers who switch to 5G can enjoy bonus data of up to 100GB, unlimited calls and SMS.
Additionally, monthly plans spanning 24 to 36 months with 5G devices will have zero interest. Maxis is also introducing monthly business plans, prepaid options, and its fixed wireless access service called Maxis Home WiFi.
