Celcom Axiata Berhad (Celcom) has launched the Celcom MAX, a new offering that combines selected home fibre broadband plans with a mobile postpaid internet plan in one bill at a special price. With this, Celcom customers can expect to enjoy a variety of benefits, including seamless high-speed connectivity, monthly rebates for a lifetime, and enhanced convenience both at home and while on the go.
Specifically, Celcom MAX brings together its Celcom Home Fibre unlimited fibre internet plans (valued at RM120 and above, 24-month contract) and MEGA postpaid plans (valued at RM80 and above) into one standalone plan with a single bill. Once combined, you will be able to enjoy a monthly saving of RM21 throughout the entire subscription period. There are four Celcom MAX packages that you can choose from:
|Package 1||RM179 (original price RM200)||Celcom Home Fibre 100 Mbps (Unlimited) + Celcom MEGA 40GB with unlimited calls to all networks|
|Package 2||RM199 (original price RM220)||Celcom Home Fibre 300 Mbps (Unlimited) + Celcom MEGA 40GB with unlimited calls to all networks|
|Package 3||RM259 (original price RM280)||Celcom Home Fibre 500 Mbps (Unlimited) + Celcom MEGA 40GB with unlimited calls to all networks|
|Package 4||RM279 (original price RM300)||Celcom Home Fibre 1 Gbps (Unlimited) + Celcom MEGA 40GB with unlimited calls to all networks|
On top of the monthly savings for a lifetime, you will also be entitled to a free AX router for your home, as well as unlimited access to free entertainment content from iflix, iQiyi, or dimsum for six months. Celcom noted that a third entertainment streaming option will be offered soon to replace dimsum, which will terminate its services in September this year.
Additionally, if you subscribe to Package 3 or 4, you can obtain a pair of Celcom Mesh Wi-Fi for free – a technology that helps to expand your home wi-fi and reduce signal weak spots and dead zones. Meanwhile, those subscribing to Package 1 and 2 will need to pay RM25 to get the Mesh Wi-Fi units for 24 months.
If you’ve been looking to upgrade your devices or hardware, the Celcom MAX package also comes with add-on deals that let you save up to 50% on the purchase of an Android TV or a Microsoft Surface laptop. The Sharp 42” Android TV is being offered at a discounted price of RM1,200 (normal price RM1,749), whereas the 60” Android TV is going at RM2,400 (normal price RM4,999). These can be purchased on instalment for RM100/month, over a period of 12 months and 24 months, respectively.
As for the Microsoft Surface laptops, the Microsoft Surface Go 2 and Microsoft Surface Pro X are both going at RM3,400 and RM5,800, respectively, instead of their usual prices of RM4,033 and RM6,438. These can also be paid via instalment, with payment for Microsoft Surface Go 2 set at RM142/month, and Microsoft Surface Pro X at RM242/month – both for a period of 24 months.
According to the chief executive officer of Celcom, Idham Nawawi, Celcom MAX was conceived in response to the public’s growing engagement within the digital ecosystem. “The all-new Celcom MAX is the one-stop home and mobile solution that is specially designed to meet the needs of our customers. Offering seamless, reliable, and consistent Internet experience anytime, Malaysians of all walks of life can maximise their unique digital lifestyles by attending online meetings, classes, stream entertainment videos, play games online, or even just to browse the web for the latest information,” he said, adding that it is perfect for households of any size.
