Update: Maxis ONE Plan with Unlimited Calls and SMS, for Real

MaxisONE banner

Last month, the article I wrote “Here’s What Maxis Do Not Tell You About Maxis One Plan“, which revealed the information about the 1st in Malaysia postpaid plan with limitless call minutes & SMS.

The article received unexpected huge responses. Many friends and readers shared the article, even Maxis PR called to express their “concern”.

A friend asked me, “Was your writeup about Maxis initiated by some other telco?”

The answer is: No.

I wrote the article because, after reading all the details and checked the facts, I think that I should share the information I learned. Plus, Maxis customers might want to understand the postpaid plan before they subscribe.

For Maxis, I apologize if it was rather harsh.

Now, here is a follow-up update about Maxis ONE plan.

Maxis ONE Plan update

A reader “burn” informed me that Maxis no longer apply 3000 minutes & SMS Fair-Usage-Policy (FUP). That’s a good news!

Here’s the related text in MaxisONE Terms & Conditions:

6. In respect of the voice & SMS allocated with the Plan, the Customer/Participant acknowledges and accepts that:

a. The Limitless minutes and SMS’ applies to:

i. Domestic mobile ON-net usage for MaxisONE™ plan lite (Excluding OFF-net calls, calls to fixed lines, video calls, calls to special numbers, calls to 1-300/1-800 numbers & calls to 121 number)

ii. Domestic mobile/fixed ON-net & OFF-net usage for MaxisONE™ plan (Excluding , video calls, calls to special numbers, calls to 1-300/1-800 numbers & calls to 121 number)

b. For any excessive usage or on suspicion of fraud or any illegal practice or unusual activity in respect of the Customer’s/Participant’s Account with MMSSB, MMSSB at its sole and absolute discretion reserves the right at any time, without being liable to the Customer/Participant’s or any third party to discontinue, disconnect, interrupt, bar or suspend the service for such period of time as we deem fit.”

In short, now MaxisONE plans are officially with unlimited call minutes and SMS’! No more 3000 call minutes and 3000 SMS’ FUP limits!

With a fixed monthly postpaid plan fee, now you can talk till jaw drop and send SMS till fingers broken. (Maxis ONE Lite plan is limitless for Maxis networks only)

But, don’t try to be evil with the unlimited calls & SMS benefits, else Maxis has the right to suspend your account.

Except the waive of 3000 FUP, nothing chance for Maxis ONE Plan, still  same price, same data quota, data quota upgrade fee, data boosters fee. Video calls (not video call mobile apps) and MMS charges are still apply to Maxis ONE plan.

Here is the updated Maxis ONE Plan details table. Feel free to share with your friends.

    Good job in writing such article. I don’t think it’s harsh but the truth might not be pleasent to everyone. Again, the use of the word limitless by Maxis is a marketing gimmicks!

    For maxis one plan lite, there is no rates quoted for off-net call and SMS. As this is not free, Maxis should be transparent with them.

    How about the data, it’s really slow when exceed the quota?

    • Cheon-Fong Liew September 28, 2014 at 11:39 am #

      Yes, internet connection speed will be throttled (slow) after data quota limit.
