Expensive Hotlink Data Plans

I don’t know how new or old are these data plans but I just came to know about it recently. For those of you who don’t know that Hotlink offers data plans:

You may also visit the Hotlink website.

While Celcom offers Daily Unlimited data plan at only RM6 per day, Hotlink is limiting users to 500MB at a slightly higher price of RM8 per day. Probably the Hotlink product development team is not aware that the Celcom Broadband Daily Unlimited plan has been available for about 2 years now. Perhaps some changes is needed in the team?

Also Celcom is offering RM68 for monthly unlimited 3G and Maxis itself is offering 2GB for RM58 running on HSDPA, I don’t understand why they think Hotlink users will pay RM68 for 500MB?

On top of all these, the most confusing part is paying RM88 for 1.5GB when 3GB cost RM98(an additional RM10?).

I think Maxis need to revised their data plans for Hotlink users and stop confusing everyone with their expensive Hotlink Data Plans.

P.s: Maxis might have reduced their Advance Lite Plan to RM48 a month, however no information are available on the website.
