Maxis to rebrand Hotlink Internet 365 prepaid to Hotlink Pantas

The short notice, which takes effect within 4 days to all Hotlink Internet 365 users, includes a small but a major change for certain customers who don’t want to spend too much to extend their account validity period.

The SMS from Maxis says that every top up of RM10 and above with Hotlink Pantas will offer a short period of 30 days of active account validity. In comparison to Hotlink Internet 365, a minimum top up of RM5 will offer 60 days of active account validity.
