Malaysia Mobile Prepaid – New Comparison Chart

After TuneTalk revised and reduced their call rate, we have make a new comparison chart over here for easy compare among all the prepaid plans.

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.

Conditions of rate level:

Charge rate level can be brought forward to the next month and in case of next month fail to maintain the charge rate level, the 3rd month will be brought back to the charge rate level of the current reload amount.

For example on May RMvalues reload RM 50, RMvalues will enjoy Gold charge rate for May and June. And if on June RMvalues reload only RM 40, then on July RMvalues will be charged based on Silver level.


Bonuses of XOX?

Unfortunately they do not offer any bonus to their subscribers.

Then why should you choose XOX?

You can get Free validity up to 368 days. Whenever you reload, your validity will automatically accumulate and it can go up to 368 days.


Review of XOX Prepaid Package:

Reload minimum of RM 50 to enjoy the lowest call rate sounds unreliable, since you can get even cheaper call and sms rate with any other operator’s postpaid plan (RM 50 commitment etc).

The advantage of XOX Prepaid is you can save lots of money if you make very short calls, e.g. less than 15 seconds. And you can accumulate the validity up to 368 days, so you have no worry of it.

Recommend for those who always make a short call. 😉
