Yes, you heard it right, sort of. Maxis is now offering free mobile internet, but it's only 1 month free trial for "selected customers only". The free trial is also only limited to the 1MB package, which they are currently charging RM5 monthly.
Personally, I am not getting too excited by this offering. I was, and still looking forward to really attractive flat rate data plans. Be it from any telco, I don't mind doing a party-hopping without millions on the table, oops I mean MNP.
Still, kudos to Maxis for their aggressive campaign to educate and promote mobile internet in Malaysia, through this free trial and that Opera Mini TV commercial.
Has anyone subscribed to the free trial? Please leave your comment.
