The Plans for iPhone 5 are all out from the big three: Maxis, Digi and Celcom. But how does the plans do compared to each other? Which is the plan that suits you most or give you the best value for money? Which is the cheapest among all? So you are all confused now on which plan should you go for and you are so undecided. Well, this will definitely help you in making that decision. Here is how the iPhone plans from Maxis, Digi and Celcom compared:
Maxis vs Digi vs Celcom!
From the comparison above, we can see that Digi has the cheapest total cost of ownership compared to the rest. But if you consider the bundled calls, SMS and MMS from Digi’s plan, they are not as good as Maxis. For me, I think that Maxis provide the most value for money plans for iPhone 5 compared to Digi and Celcom. Except for the iValue Simple. In my opinion, it is not as good as it looks. It is cheap, and that’s all. I would prefer iDigi 88 than iValue Simple.
And the best part is, Maxis no longer charges for data when the data quota is exceeded. Only the speed will be throttled. But even a throttled data speed for Maxis is considered fast because the speed is reduced by 3 fold, unlike Digi or Celcom which the data will be throttler to a sad 256kbps. But note that the free SMS that comes with Maxis plans are Maxis to Maxis only. SMS to other operators will be charged.
For Celcom, a combination of calls, SMS and MMS of up to 1500 will be given. That will make it more flexible for people instead of having a fix number of minutes and SMS. And Celcom plans also comes with a huge amount of Data. So if you are someone who seldom call and SMS but uses data alot, Celcom might be the best for you.
Good: Best value for money (excluding iValue Simple). Good coverage. Excellent internet speed. Get free 1000 minutes calls for Maxis to Maxis in your contract period.
Bad: More pricey compared to the others. Concern on bill shock. iValue Simple sucks.
Good: Cheapest plans for iPhone 5. Low monthly commitment compared to the others.
Bad: Only 24 months contract. Not as powerful coverage. Slow internet speed. iPhone 5 price only subsidized a little.
Good: Flexible calls/SMS/MMS plan. Huge amount of data. Good coverage and average internet speed.
Bad: Too little calls/SMS bundled. Most expensive when value for money is concerned.
With this, I hope you can decide better on which plan to go for when you plan to get you iPhone 5. Well maybe you have already decided, but this can make things a little bit clearer to you. So basically if you want a cheaper plan, go for Digi, if you want something with the best value for money, Maxis is the best, if you are looking for flexibility and huge amount of data, there is none other than Celcom.
