Xpax prepaid plans get more data
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.
