In supporting the platform, Maxis provided communications support via 500,000 eSMS to residents in Selangor over a duration of one month during Ramadan.

With our humble contribution, we hope that it provided the added convenience to business owners in Selangor, and that it brought the atmosphere and tradition of Ramadan bazaar into homes,” said Mariam Bevi Batcha, Maxis’ Chief Corporate Affairs Officer.
