Maxis Launches Into Malaysia's Biggest Phone Delivery Operation From Midnight
Today, Maxis starts Malaysia's biggest 1-day phone delivery operation. Maxis promises every customer who pre-ordered iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will receive their phones in 24 hours of launch - no matter where they are in Malaysia.
This is part of Maxis’ 24 Hour Express promise this year. All in all, over 1,000 phones will be fulfilled between 12.01am and 11.59pm, 16 Oct. Some customers who selected the Express Delivery also decided to take Maxis up on their “anywhere in Malaysia” promise - deliveries this year have been requested on a boat off the coast of Langkawi, in the interior of Sabah, and in Cameron Highlands, to name a few.
On route to deliver the iPhone to one customer in Pudu, Kuala Lumpur was Dushyan Vaithiyanathan, Maxis’ Head of Consumer Business.
Joe Chia, Asia’s most influential designer 2014, is a big fan of the iPhone and could barely wait to get his hands on the latest model, so he opted for the free delivery service, and was pleasantly surprised to see Dushyan himself at the door of his clothing line workshop located in the Pudu area.

“I never expected them to deliver at midnight. This truly is the best iPhone experience. Thank you Maxis!” said Joe.
“There’s nothing more satisfying than to have your iPhone delivered right to your doorstep, and fast. For us, it’s not just about the delivery speed but the experience that our customers have each time we interact with them, and that includes having the best 4G experience with this iconic phone,” said Dushyan.
Customers also had the option to self-collect their phones under the Express Collection service at any of 40 Maxis Centers nationwide, with a promise of fulfillment within 24 hours.
Mohd Nazrul Abdul Muttalib was understandably thrilled when he became the first Maxis customer to get his/her hands on the iPhone 6s Plus from the KLCC Maxis Centre in under 3 mins.
“I’m a bit tired but feel really excited because I finally got my iPhone 6s Plus, and I got it in the new Rose Gold colour!” he said.
This year, customers who missed the pre-order window can check stock availability via RealView, a Telco-1st in-store phone stock checker on Maxis’ website. Here, customers can find their preferred phone model/colour, with stock information updated hourly. This will help customers find the nearest Maxis Centre where their exact phone model/colour is available and avoid wasting time chasing stocks around town.

In line with its ambition to be the leading ICT and solutions provider for Enterprise customers, Maxis is proud to announce its collaboration with Microsoft (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (Microsoft) through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), committing to use their respective expertise, technology and capabilities to create innovative digital solutions for organisations in Malaysia. Concurrently, the collaboration makes Maxis the first telco in Malaysia to offer fixed line voice calls with Microsoft Teams unified communications, as part of Microsoft’s Modern Workplace solutions.
Showcasing the potential of 5G in education, Maxis demonstrated its 5G use case, the virtual reality (VR) experience for Science learning in its eKelas programme to Yang Amat Berhormat Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad, the Prime Minister of Malaysia at Pusat Internet IOCC today. The VR learning experience by Maxis is the only 5G use case in the education vertical being piloted under the 5G Demonstration Projects in Langkawi.
