Fixed Line Call Rates – TM Voice Call Plans

TM is offering another Voice call package which works like mobile postpaid plans, a fixed monthly fee.

Currently TM is offering 3 voice call plans, all of them included :

  • Free TM Homeline rental
  • Free Calls to all TM Fixed line in Malaysia
  • Free DECT phone with 12 months warranty
  • Minimum 6 months contract
Voice Deal 38RM 38/monthRM 0.15/min to all other fixed line and mobile operators
Voice Deal 48RM 48/monthRM 0.12/min to all other fixed line and mobile operatorsFree 60 min to all other fixed line and mobile operators
Voice Deal 68RM 68/monthRM 0.10/min to all other fixed line and mobile operatorsFree 120 min to all other fixed line and mobile operators

Our opinion :

If you make less than 200 minutes calls on mobile operators and other company fixed line, then you shouldn’t select Voice Deal 68. Because first 60 minutes are Free, and the rest 140 minutes only cost RM 16.80, total only RM 64.80, far less than RM 68.

If you make over 250 minutes calls on n mobile operators and other company fixed line, then Voice Deal 68 can really help you to save a lot.
