Potong Now & Get a Free Prepaid WiGGY

I only have one question for P1….”Are you crazy!?” Although I find the prepaid WiGGY expensive, I still think it is a good deal over time, if they plan to reduce the price of prepaid packages. This officially makes P1 the first to offer WiMAX prepaid packages in Malaysia and probably in the world.

P1 has very good packages, but their major network problem recently is a big issue. I think they should give more focus on that before offering something like this since customer experience should be prioritise first.

Also those who already subscribe to P1 via the previous “Cut Now” campaign won’t be able to enjoy this offer. I think this won’t be fair to them(previous Potong Now subscribers) since that campaign is still new.

I strongly encourage potential customers to try out P1 for one month before subscribing.
