Maxis Launches #Hotlink Prepaid Plan

From L-R: Dushyan Vaithiyanathan, Maxis’ Head of Consumer Business and Tan Lay Han, Maxis’ Head of Sales and Services, launching #Hotlink at Menara Maxis earlier today. 

Maxis today announced #Hotlink, the first and only prepaid plan of its kind in Malaysia that offers continuous continuous free basic Internet access with no pay-per-use charges. Upon activating the #Hotlink plan, which retails for RM8.80, customers are given RM5 worth of preloaded airtime and are instantly connected to high-speed Internet for only RM1 a day, or RM30 per month for 1GB of data.

“In today’s mobile internet environment, constant connectivity is no longer a luxury but a necessity. With #Hotlink, what we are essentially offering is an ‘always connected’ experience. It is a simple, flexible plan that is relevant to the needs of our prepaid community," said Dushyan Vaithiyanatha, Head of Consumer Business, Maxis Berhad.

Basic Internet applications that #Hotlink subscribers can enjoy include WhatsApp, LINE, WeChat, Facebook, Twitter, and other non-data intensive websites. Other benefits of the #Hotlink plan include:

  • Low flat rates of 12 sen per 30 seconds for voice calls and 7 sen per SMS to ALL networks,
  • High speed internet for RM1 per day (1GB per month for RM30) on the best data network in the country,
  • Up to 8% free airtime once every 2 months based on the customer’s cumulative top-up amounts,
  • Lowest IDD Rates with IDD132 to top 10 countries.

Those interested can visit their nearest Hotlink Dealer or Maxis Center, while existing Hotlink users can upgrade to the new #Hotlink plan by dialing *108*25# on their mobile phones.
