Comment by Morten Lundal, Chief Executive Officer, Maxis:

“We had a solid operational and financial progress this quarter. It’s again amazing to see how data consumption is exploding. Clearly, Malaysians love data. From an average of 2.5GB of data consumed per month last quarter, our customers are now using 3.1GB per month on average, especially driven by video usage.

We had a great response from our massive auto-upgrade of data for MaxisONE plan (MOP) customers and shareable DataPool introduced last quarter. In the last 12 months alone, we added over 800k MOP customers, with a base now approaching 1.5 million. For prepaid, Hotlink FAST is gaining traction and attracting high ARPU customers. More than 1 million customers are already on this data-rich plan, nearly double the number from a quarter ago. 

Quality is becoming critical for so many Malaysians and great customer experience matters, which is why we are building further our 4G leadership, investing more than anyone else in the network.

We are making good progress towards our ambition to be a fully digitalised Maxis to deliver the best digital experience to our customers.”
