INTERNET DATA PLAN - MAXIS, DIGI & CELCOM

BOLEH BLA LA MAXIS..!!

When it comes to Internet Data Plan which one is better, is it Maxis, Digi or Celcom?

From their website you can observe the following :







    Offered  : 500mb per month for RM58-00
                    (I'm currently stuck with this!)



Digi offered : 1GB per month for RM43-00 (hmmm...)














Celcom offered : 1.5GB for RM48-00 (wow!!)





The thing is we dont know how many kilobyte per second Maxis and Digi are offering (except celcom). I heard that the internet connection for Digi and Celcom will be much slower after we reach the limit or they will charge us a sum of amount for every 10kb extra example : Maxis - RM0-05 per 10kb.

I did heard that Maxis internet connection which is more faster compared to others...well..it depends on preference actually.

BUT...is the money you invest in worth it?...well..I dont mind the slow connection but still an acceptable level of reception compared to the hefty amount you have to pay every month of RM58-00 for 500MB!!...what an extortion !!
I'm converting to CELCOM soon...




My bill statement last month.
Data Plan Package : RM58-00 for 500MB
Usage for last month : 680,030KB (680MB)

This is how they charged me : 
The 500MB is actually 512MB
512MB converted to KB is 512,000KB
512,000KB - 680,030KB = 168,030KB (1.6MB)
168,030 KB / 10 = 16803 x RM0.05 (RM0.05 per 10KB) = RM840.15!!
 However, they said that maximum amount to be charged only RM250-00.
So, in other hand, I had to pay RM250-00 for extra usage of 1.6MB (bloody hell!!)
And I can't change the plan (upgrade to 1.5GB for RM78-00) as I'm stuck with the handphone package. A penalty of RM1,000-00 to be imposed if I break the contract.

    If 10KB=RM0.05,Then 168030KB=RM840.15

    1. for better connection it depends on the user, some of us said that celcom gives speed and so do Digi and Maxis.
      But for cheaper deal, you may want to consider U-Mobile.
