  1. Promotion valid till 14 September 2007, users will be charged RM120 per month starting 15 September 2007.
  2. Promotions applies to current RM120 unlimited data plan users.
  3. According to its “Fair Usage Policy”
    • Each customer’s total usage per month shall NOT exceed 3GB of data volume transmitted (total upload and download usage). This is to ensure that no individual hogs the bandwidth at all times.
    • Certain software/applications which is used by a small number of customers to send and receive files containing very large amounts of data (including without limitation traffic from peer-to-peer software/applications (such as Bit Torrent, eDonkey, Gnutella) or file sharing software (such as Limewire). These activities may cause network congestion and can negatively impact the speed at which other customers can access the internet.

    The Fair usage policy is similar to the one being applied to Maxis Wireless Broadband package here. The only difference is that both “Fair Usage Policy” is located at different url.

    My question is, does this “Fair usage policy” applies to the RM120 data unlimited plan users?
    If yes, then what makes a different between the Maxis Wireless Broadband users and the RM120 Data unlimited plan users?

    Could it be:

    • High speed expensive 3G Data cards vs China branded modem
    • Different 3G network
    • Rich malaysians vs Poor malaysians
    • Anything else?

    There were rumors that Celcom will launch a similar package to Maxis Wireless Broadband.
    Should you and I wait?

    Maxis Unlimted Data @ Rm99.
