Maxis recently offered a new post-paid plan for users called the ONEplan. This ONEplan will offer limitless voice calls and SMS to fixed and mobile numbers on all networks that Maxis says is limitless. However, due to their Fair Usage Policy (FUP) this limitless number of calls and SMS is actually capped at 3000 minutes of Voice Calls and 3000 SMS with any calls or SMS afterwards being charged at the normal per sen rate. Coming in 2 options with ONEplan at 2GB of data and ONEplan Lite at 1GB of data, the available data quota is rather low but it will be offered at LTE speeds. Subsequent Data Booster Packs cost RM10 for 200MB, RM20 for 500MB and RM30 for 1GB of data. However, the data quota is in effect limitless as well, as you will not have to pay any extra rates after you hit the data quota. Instead, you'll be throttled down to 64kbps, which is still fast enough for most mobile purposes. Check out the table and links in this article for more details.
