Conclusion

I just saw the Maxis advertisement on newspaper and television regarding this new Bagus 5 Pass, I saw their call rates show RM 0.12/minute, and I know you will ask, why I said It’s RM 0.24/minute to Maxis/Hotlink networks ? It’s because the rates in advertisement was 30 seconds charging block, unlike other telcos published their call rates in 1 minute.

This is a trick to trick the users to switch to Maxis Hotlink. And this is the purpose of establishing this blog.

Recommendation – Unlikely. Unless you’re frequent calls to Maxis/Hotlink networks, otherwise you can consider other telcos or refer to our old comparison chart (I’ll update it later.).
