Maxis Introduces Hotlink FAST For A ‘Do Whatever Faster’ Internet Generation

The Internet has changed everything, and today it’s all about getting connected instantly and having fast speeds. This is especially true for Millennials, or ‘Generation Flux’ - to whom fast is the norm.

Hotlink is keeping up with this savvy generation of Internet-bred users by introducing Hotlink FAST, a new prepaid proposition designed for 4G users that offers high speed internet with Fast Internet Passes for consistently fast surfing speeds of 20Mbps (both indoors and outdoors, 80% of the time) on Malaysia’s No. 1 4G network. Additionally, customers can also enjoy the best Internet deals with Internet add-ons for as low as RM12 per 1GB. All this plus one low flat rate for calls and SMS to ALL networks.

“Hotlink FAST was created with Millennials in mind. When we developed this product, it was important that we put ourselves in their shoes – they have been born into a world where anything less than fast internet is simply unheard of. In fact, fast is the only thing that they subscribe to. So Hotlink FAST, with its benefits of high speed internet at great value and supported by a superior 4G network is just the perfect plan for 4G users to do whatever they want, faster,” said Navin Manian, Maxis’ Head of Prepaid.
