Compare the Mobile Prepaid Voice Call Rates (Mobile Operators)

We are comparing 4 Malaysian mobile operators. What is mobile operators ? They are Celcom, DiGi, Maxis and U Mobile.

As you see in the newspapers, every mobile operators advertisement claimed that they are the cheapest one and they showed their rates on newspaper, but they hide out their charging block or even show only 30 seconds call rate.

If you’re not reading carefully, you might think they are the cheapest but then regrets after you subscribed it.

Thanks to the power of MNP, you’re freely to port to the other mobile operators anytime, anywhere whenever you wish to.

Now, we show you the comparison table on the call rates to mobile operators owned networks (on-net) as well as to the other networks (off-net).

Malaysia Mobile Prepaid

It’s the time for us to compare all the telco prepaid plans in Malaysia after over a month of each operator plan details explanation.

If you haven’t checked it, the links below may help you to get some concepts about what we had discussed.

Celcom Prepaid , DiGi Prepaid , Hotlink Prepaid , U Mobile Prepaid , Happy Prepaid , Tune Talk Prepaid , XOX Prepaid

Some telco offers not only 1 prepaid plan, but we will only compare the cheapest plan with other telco. Beside that, we will also compare only rate of calling or sms to all networks instead of own telco networks, because of MNP, we might not know which telco the other end is using, so only flat rate to all networks will help us save a lot, unless you only call to same telco.
