New Maxis Mobile Internet Packages
Maxis has a new packages line up for its Mobile Internet.
From the list of packages above, there’s no more RM99 unlimited use mobile internet. The same with the data package that comes with iPhone, when you use more that the allowed quota, the additional usages will be charged RM0.0005/KB. So let say you reached the monthly quota, and you download an MP3 of the size 5MB.
5MB = 5000KB
5000 x RM0.0005 = RM2.50
That’s expensive. And the very famous question that I keep receiving from others is, how to check how much bandwidth that I have used. The answer is very simple. You can’t check. Maxis doesn’t have that facility. Maxis is doing daylight robbery by charging the excess usage by not providing any utility for the customers to check their bandwidth consumptions.
