We’ve compiled the available plans for the new i Phone models offered by the Big Four telcos in Malaysia: Celcom, Digi, Maxis, and U Mobile, and broke them down by the monthly commitments: below RM100, between RM100 to RM150, and between RM150 to RM200.
Basically, there is always a cheaper alternative prepaid plan that matches or outvalue a similar price point postpaid plan.
One should only use postpaid plan when he/she is subjected to circumstances as below: Yoodo is included in my list because it fits as both a prepaid and postpaid plan.
Therefore, you shouldn’t look at just the subsidised prices, but more to the total cost of ownership, which takes into account the subsidised price added with the plan’s monthly commitment over the course of the contract.
From the table, it is plain to see that the Maxis i Phone postpaid bundles are the most costly in terms of value – across all price points the other telcos’ plans usually offer more mobile data.
The downsides are these freebies only last as long as 12 months and not as much data as Yoodo.
Yoodo gives 100GB of data that you can use an average of 3.33 GB every day.
For the most part, the postpaid plans offered by the telcos today are straightforward – gone are the days when i Phones get their own specific postpaid plans.
All the plans here follow the ones currently offered by the telcos with no changes.
The new i Phone XS, XS Max, and i Phone XR are now officially available in Malaysia, and as usual, all major telcos in the country have raced to release their i Phone postpaid bundle plans.
With retail prices that go all the way to RM7,049, perhaps getting a subsidy by buying it via a postpaid bundle would be the way to go?
