The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Technology - By LEE KAH LENG bytz@thes­tar.com.my

CELCOM Ax­i­ata Bhd first launched the #noke­len­tong cam­paign for its Xpax pre­paid ser­vice back in De­cem­ber, with a large amount of data for cus­tomers.

To­day, the telco fur­ther en­hances its of­fer­ings with four new In­ter­net plans – a new 2GB daily plan (RM5), two weekly plans with 500MB (RM6) and 5GB (RM19) each, and one monthly plan with 15GB at RM79.

“We feel it’s time to up­date our port­fo­lio and propo­si­tion since the launch back in De­cem­ber,” said Celcom Ax­i­ata Bhd chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer Zal­man Ae­fendy Zainal Abidin.

The new plans com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing four data plans – a daily plan with 1GB (RM3), a weekly plan with 2GB (RM10), as well as two monthly plans with 5GB (RM30) and 10GB (RM50).

At the same time, all Xpax users en­joy 10GB ba­sic In­ter­net meant for so­cial me­dia apps – namely What­sApp, WeChat, Line, Twit­ter, and Face­book Mes­sen­ger –aswell as 10GB high-speed In­ter­net data quota specif­i­cally for Face­book use.

The telco has also made avail­able a num­ber of new add-on op­tions to sup­ple­ment its users’ heavy data us­age for spe­cific pur­poses such as late night In­ter­net, un­lim­ited calls, as well as un­lim­ited music and video stream­ing.

At the event, deputy CEO Azwan Khan Os­man Khan said that mo­bile data us­age has in­creased for both pre­paid and post­paid cus­tomers.

“Celcom has seen mo­bile data us­age dou­bling over the past year, where users now con­sume 5.6GB per month on av­er­age com­pared to only 2.5GB a year ago.”

Asked whether the new Xpax plans’ gen­er­ous amounts of data would prompt some post­paid users to switch to pre­paid in­stead, Azwan said Celcom does not see the pre­paid of­fer­ings can­ni­bal­is­ing its post­paid of­fer­ings as each plan serves its cus­tomers’ dif­fer­ent needs.
