Maxis got its Chinese New Year celebrations underway recently on 13 January with the launch of Hotlink 4G, which enables its prepaid customers to experience even faster internet speeds on Malaysia's first and widest 4G network. All customers need to do is to purchase a #Hotlink SIM pack for RM8.80, and do a 4G SIM swap at any Maxis Centre nationwide. They will then need to subscribe to a 1GB or 3GB monthly mobile internet pass, priced at RM30 and RM68 respectively, to start enjoying faster speeds on Maxis’ 4G network. To subscribe to the passes, customers need to dial *100# from their mobile phones. Customers will also get 50% more data if they purchase the monthly mobile internet passes anytime until 28 February.
