Celcom pressures Maxis even further by giving users 18GB of data in new plan

Following the whole fiasco about Maxis charging users crazy high monthly fees for tiny bit of data quota, Celcom is back with a new plan to further advance into a new level, leaving the green coloured telco looking really bad in the telco industry.

The company today announced a new plan called “FIRST Platinum” whereby users get 18GB of data, unlimited calls and SMS to all networks and priority customer service.
This new plan is also contract free. Which means if you don’t like to stay with this plan, you can opt out anytime without penalty.

    This plan is everywhere.. Everyone is talking about it.. I understand the hype but its more towards heavy user rite?? Lets just see what other telco will do about it.. I dont think they will let it slide.

    • Clavin

      Wait is not the promotion before this the GOLD plan?? Now this plan.. Its really a blood bath.

      • Jeremyz

        Ya.. I think its quite clever for Celcom to bring out an counter towards other telco…I guess they have a backup plan just incase other telco counter back.

  • Kao Cheon

          I know what u mean, but i was asking for example u pay for unlimited access to spoify but once u hear music online u will use ur data unless you are with a plan which gives u a quota of data for spoify. So wondering how does it work.

          • SelenaDventure

            It won’t deduct your data.

          • Andrew Liao

    Even first gold is better than this

    • Andrew Liao

      Ya i totally get what u mean.. Their Gold plan is really good already. Dont know why they are coming with this huge Data plan.. I dont think its for the average user.

      • Stefen Tenfeng

        It’s benefits for heavy users who don’t have to purchase the extra data top up.
