Thursday 24 February 2011 @ 2:33 pm

Maxis LogoA staff from Maxis Telemarketing Team called me yesterday to offer a special promotion for its Wireless Broadband service, so I thought I should share it with you all as well.

In this special promotion, the price for 3GB wireless broadband package is reduced to RM48/month only (from the original price of RM68/month)!

Let me summarize the criteria you need to be eligible to enjoy the promotion :-

  • 1. A Maxis postpaid customer.
  • 2. Has been using the postpaid line for more than 12 months.
  • 3. Never subscribe to any Maxis Broadband before.

If you meet all the above 3 criteria, now is a good opportunity to subscribe the 3GB wireless broadband. Not only you’ll save RM20/month from this special promotion, below are the things you’ll get from the promotion :-

  • Enjoy up to 7.2Mbps wireless broadband speed.
  • Save RM20/month from the original price.
  • RM10 rebate for the first 5 months.
  • Free E1552 modem

The free modem supports only 1 device, so if you are interested in sharing the wireless broadband connection with other devices you may want to consider getting Maxis WiFi Modem E5832.

Please note that there’s a RM100 activation fee for this special promotion, but I think it’s reasonable since you’ll be getting RM50 back from the rebate. It simply means you are paying RM50 to activate the wireless broadband service and start saving RM20 every month. :)

Share Wireless Broadband Using Maxis WiFi Modem (E5832)

Wednesday 23 February 2011 @ 8:07 pm

If you are a wireless broadband user, you might come across the following situation when you want to share the broadband connection to more than 1 device. Most of the wireless broadband modems in the market allow you to make connection from only one device at one time. So if you want to access the same wireless broadband service on 2 or more devices, you’ll need unplug the modem from one device then plug it to another. This is quite inconvenient especially when you need to switch between the devices regularly.

Maxis WiFi Modem (E5832) is designed to solve the above problem by allowing you to share the wireless broadband through WiFi connection to up to 5 devices simultaneously. The modem is very easy to operate, let me show you in the video below :-
