Maxis has done a major make over of the fibre internet plan. The new fibre internet plan is made available to the public from 16 November 2016.
First of all, the Maxis Fibre Home is now re-branded to MaxisONE Home in line with Maxis move toward standardising the products name to MaxisONE.
The major changes are the download speed and the monthly pricing structure.
Let’s look at the download speed offered. The 20Mbps plan for RM178 is no longer available. In its place is the all new MaxisONE Home Lite with the same price of RM179. An additional 10Mbps download speed for the same price is a reasonable deal.
But for the new MaxisONE Home Lite, the RM30 monthly call credit is no longer part of the plan. The voice call is charged on per call basis or pay as you use.
If the outgoing voice call is important to you, then you can consider paying an extra RM10 per month for the upgraded MaxisONE Home 30Mbps at RM189 per month. This particular plan comes with unlimited calls to all mobile network and fixed lines alike. The comparable plan in the old structure is the Maxis Fibre Home RM248. The new plan is cheaper by RM60 per month which is not something to sneeze at.
A new and previously not available speed of 50Mbps is created to fill the gap between 30Mbps and the top of the line 100Mbps. At RM219 per month, the 50Mbps plan is the best option for large household with multiple connected devices.
Maxis has offered the 100Mbps Plan for almost a year now. This ultrafast plan is preferred by online gamers. But most of them baulk at the high price of RM398 per month.
With the new price structure, Maxis has slashed almost RM100 off to arrive at the new price of RM299.
The most popular and entry level plan of 10Mbps has also gone through some changes. It is now known as MaxisONE Home Basic and the price has been revised from RM148/month to RM139/month. As with the MaxisONE Home Lite 30Mbps, the voice call is based on pay as you use instead of the RM30 call credit in the old plan.
Now, the 100Mbps (RM299), 50Mbps (RM219) and 30Mbps (RM189) are put in a category of “MaxisONE Home”. The common features of this category are:
- Expert consultation: Perfect WiFi installation by Maxperts to ensure the optimum WiFi signal strength at every corner of your home.
- Unlimited iFlix access for up to 5 devices for home and mobile. iFlix is a subscription based Video on Demand streaming service
- Unlimited Calls to all mobile networks and fixedlines.
The special monthly discount enjoy by MaxisOne Plan users is now replaced by a one time deal of paying just RM1 to purchase Chromecast and WiFi Extender.
Maxis revamp the fibre internet service price plan to meet 2017 Malaysia Budget’s aim of higher internet speed at the same price.
