As we can see from above, DiGi always is the cheapest postpaid provider.

And we can also see that, Maxis is likely to penalty it’s subscribers when they make calls or sending SMS/MMS to other operators. Maxis charges are extremely high SMS and MMS rate on sending to other operators.

Celcom and DiGi have the flat call rates on all networks anytime anywhere.

* Note that all call rate are on per minute basis.
