Best Prepaid Plans Comparison Malaysia 2020

*Post updated 5th June 2020*
The original was published on October 2018. Since then many mobile virtual network operators(MVNO) like ookyo, Tron & Buzzme have ceased their service. Only Yoodo is still surviving and kicking. But, I have categorized Yoodoo under postpaid plan now.

Celcom, Hotlink, Digi,U Mobile and TuneTalk also have revised their prepaid plan. The most significant changes are that Digi Super Terrer and TuneTalk Vibe is no longer available. It’s about the time for us to re-evaluate and re-select the best prepaid plans in Malaysia.

After some thorough research, I have found out:

  1. Best Prepaid Data Plan for Most Malaysians (Plan prabayar terbaik)
  2. Best unlimited data and unlimited call plan
  3. Cheapest Prepaid Plan with Unlimited Call(Plan panggilan tanpa had murah)
  4. Best Prepaid Plan with Unlimited Data (comes with hotspot)
  5. Best Prepaid Plan below RM60

Why you should go for prepaid

There are various factors to go for prepaid plans instead of postpaid plans. Among the factors, the two biggest driving factors for using prepaid plans are the flexibility of usage and money-saving.

Flexibility of Usage

For prepaid plans, there is no need to commit any fixed term contract whether it is one year or two years. You can enjoy the privilege to change or swap to any new Telco whenever you want.

There is also no fixed monthly commitment. For postpaid plans, you are tied to a fixed amount of commitment but prepaid plans allow you to switch to cheaper or more expensive plan depends on your monthly budget. Or you may stop subscribing a new monthly plan if you are away for long holidays.


Generally, prepaid plans are always cheaper in comparison to postpaid plans because they are meant for consumers with a lower budget. Effective 6th September 2018, prepaid reload services are exempted from 6% Service Tax for Malaysians based on Section 34(3)(a) while the postpaid plans charge an additional 6% service tax (SST). You may check out a very comprehensive table prepared by Digi on explaining which services are charged with SST and which does not.

There are also various reload channels which offer cashback or discounted top-up. Both Lazada and Boost app (android)/(ios) offer cashback for mobile reload through their app. You can even use a credit card to do the transaction and earn additional cashback. If you’re interested in more money-saving tips, can check out my choice of best Malaysia credit cards & cashback strategy guide.

All these little savings and cash backs accumulate a considerable sum of money over time. As the Malay saying goes, ‘sedikit-sedikit, lama-lama jadi bukit‘.

Why you should trust me

Throughout the years, I have been a user of various mobile plans in Malaysia so I have a knowledge or two on advantages and disadvantages among the local telcos. As long as I can remember, I started off as a Hotlink user during secondary school because Digi’s network coverage was so bad in the rural area. (Hints: I am from Pahang). I had to reload from time to time. Sometimes I just could not afford to reload and had to keep track of my phone validity period and reload on the very last day.

Then, I moved to town and convert to Digi because of the cheap price and acceptable network coverage in cities. When I started to work I was given a Celcom SIM card and stuck with them for years. It can be frustrating when you switch between mobile network providers in the old days because you have to give up your current number and lost all your contact.

I understand an average consumer’s need because I am standing in the same shoes. Coupling with my thorough research on available information from the service provider and consumer reviews from various online sources including Lowyat forum, I can help you to put an end of your search for the best Malaysia mobile prepaid plan.

Most importantly I review and update my post from time to time based on the latest mobile plan launched in Malaysia in order to keep you updated to the latest information. Subscribe to my email list, Facebook and Twitter for my latest recommendation if you find my review is helpful.

How I picked the best prepaid plan

Network Coverage

Network coverage is the most crucial factor you should consider whenever choosing your mobile network provider. Performance of a mobile network can vary depending on location. Some mobile networks perform well in both rural and city area while some are just pure sh*t in the rural area as they do not have the infrastructure to support it. Without good network coverage, everything else including the speed, data, call time and SMS is worthless.


Data speed is the second most important factor and it is directly related to network coverage. There are 3G, 4G and 4G LTE network. 4G LTE is the fastest of them all, wider 4G network, better internet speed.


Each prepaid plan is packaged and priced differently. It can be quite overwhelming for someone to look at so many different add-ons and passes which currently available. I am looking the best and most practical bargain of them all.

Data, Call Time and SMS

Among these three, I consider data/internet is the most essential. Because text messaging and call app slowly replaces conventional call and message (SMS). So, call time and SMS is less of my priority.


I will focus specifically on 30-days validity prepaid package. Users with specific needs like extra-long validity period can explore other available options which are currently out of my list.

How I research

My research and user experience are largely focusing on Kuala Lumpur and Selangor area.

Then, I salvage the raw information provided by all the different Telcos and digest them for your easier understanding. Online user’s review and feedback are also collected as additional references.

If you are from different states and have different opinions, please comment below on which Telco is the best in your area.

Celcom, Maxis/Hotlink, Digi, U Mobile Performance Assessment

Network coverage comparison, from the left: Maxis, Celcom, Digi and U-Mobile
From the left: Maxis, Celcom, Digi and U-Mobile compared head to head on 4G network coverage, speed and latency

I used OpenSignal app to generate the network coverage mapping and network speed test as shown above. These are the Big 4 Telcos we have in Malaysia: Maxis, Celcom, Digi and U-Mobile. The data and results are crowdsourced from over 250,000 real users data with up to 1.3 million measurements. It is not data generated through “ideal situation” by any big corporation or telcos themselves. We can safely assume that the data is pretty reliable.

At a glance, you notice Celcom and Maxis have the best overall 4G network coverage in Malaysia whereas Digi followed behind and U-Mobile is definitely lacking in the East Coast and rural area. Then, we dive down deeper to city area and taking Selangor as our benchmark, all 4 Telco fare quite similar in terms of coverage in the city area.

Quick Tips: Download speed(Mbps, Megabytes per second) higher is better, and latency(ms, milliseconds) lower is better.

One obvious thing you can notice is that U-Mobile network speed is lowest and latency is highest in both test area, Kepong and Putrajaya. There are also many other areas in Kuala  Lumpur and Selangor show similar results which indicating a slightly poorer internet experience if you are a U Mobile user.

Again, Celcom and Maxis emerge as the top 2 performers in terms of speed and latency.

And regional performance report agrees with what I have claimed as you can see how GREEN and BLUE the chart is.

Hence, Celcom and Maxis is preferred in my selection if everything given are equal.

1. TuneTalk CUN 28

Best Prepaid Data Plan for Most Malaysians

And earn free AirAsia big points for every reload.

Free delivery right now.

 Get New TuneTalk SIM  Port-in to Tunetalk

TuneTalk CUN RM28 is the best cheap data prepaid plan. It is great for its unlimited social and chat app. It has 6GB monthly mobile data and additional 6GB free data for Youtube/Netflix.

TuneTalk prepaid plans are thoughtfully packaged for youngster and millennial who spent most of their time on social media. This prepaid plan costs only RM28 (less than RM1 per day) which very attractive for teenagers.

It also has unlimited call among TuneTalk numbers. So, you can get your family members and close friend to use this prepaid plan to enjoy its unlimited call.

Last but not least, It has RM10 booster addon for additional 10GB all days. In case you use extra data in any month, just top up RM10 to enjoy the additional mobile data. It is the cheapest data addon package among all prepaid plans. Let me know in comments if you know there’s cheaper data addon.

I still rank this plan as the best prepaid plan for most Malaysians even after hotlink prepaid unlimited is released. Because I think that no matter how it is, most will encounter that hey need a hotspot. You may add-on the hotspot pass here and there and the bill can quickly build up.

2. Hotlink prepaid unlimited – RM35

Best unlimited data and call prepaid plan

best unlimited data and call planHotlink prepaid unlimited is definitely disrupting the RM30+ market with this offer. Unlimited call and unlimited data just put Celcom Xpax unlimited and Umobile unlimited out of the water.

 Check out Hotlink

Frankly, I don’t see this coming from Hotlink(Maxis) because they always position themselves as the premium telco. Well, good competitions are always welcomed as they are beneficial for the market and consumers.

If you’re certain that you will not be using hotspot or mobile data tethering, I highly recommend you to get hotlink prepaid unlimited RM35. I have not personally used or tested its data speed but I have seen multiple good user reviews on hotlink prepaid unlimited plan.

Users had praised its speed is truly up to 3Mbps and 6Mbps. Light internet browsing is reported to be buttery smooth as well.

And hotlink is generous enough to throw in the unlimited call, which makes it icing on the cake.

The competitions

U Mobile giler unlimited package indeed offers lots of value on paper but its network coverage is where it fell short. Just check out U Mobile Facebook page and you find a lot of complaints. If you would like to try U Mobile, it’s best to check out the network coverage of your area using OpenSignal app. Situation like the photo below is the biggest reason I can’t recommend U Mobile prepaid plan.

u mobile fb page user complain

3. Digi BigBonus RM28

Cheapest Prepaid Plan with Unlimited Call

Digi logo DigiBigBonus RM28 is the cheapest prepaid plan with unlimited call with only 3GB mobile data

 Check out at Digi

Digi BigBonus RM28 is the cheapest prepaid plan with unlimited call to all networks currently. It has only 3GB which is certainly not impressive. Digi compensated it by giving 1GB free internet daily 1pm-7pm and also free 2.5Gb weekly (total 10GB per month) for video and music.

The main thing I like this plan is it being almost twice as cheap as other unlimited call prepaid plan. The low mobile data cap is not a problem for those who have broadband installed at home. Half of your day time 1pm-7pm is well covered by the daily 1GB free mobile data. On the other hand, data-heavy activity like video and music also will be covered by the weekly extra 2.5GB free data.

Do keep in mind that network coverage is one of the weak point of Digi prepaid plan. Be sure to check your area network using the OpenSignal app as I recommended before.

Digi BigBonus RM28 is not the most ideal plan for many but it is certainly the cheapest and most cost-efficient prepaid plan at the moment. It is good for a person who can discipline themselves and model their daily mobile data consumption behaviour according to the package.

4. Celcom Xpax 48GB

Best Prepaid Plan with Unlimited Data(Limited speed) –

Celcom gold plus logo e1578630568251 Celcom Xpax 48GB internet pass cost only RM38. But there’s  catch which it has a 3Mbps speed limit and also 3GB hotspot limit.

 Check out at Celcom

Celcom Xpax 48GB @RM38 is the best prepaid plan with almost unlimited data for average users.

Let’s admit the fact that there won’t be any “true unlimited data” for any plan less than RM100 in the near future. In fact, currently U mobile GX30 also has a threshold of 50GB, and throttle to 500Kbps from 8pm to 1am when you exceed it.

The biggest downside? It has a speed limit of 3mbps and 3GB cap for the hotspot. Compared to DigiBigBonus RM28, it has no unlimited call to all networks.

For those who can stretch your budget to more than RM30-RM60 per month, there are more options for you to choose.

5. TuneTalk CUN 48

Best Prepaid Plan below RM60 in Malaysia

tune talk logoTuneTalk CUN 48 is the best prepaid plan under RM60 offering 10GB high speed data, unlimited social and chat app, and 60GB Youtube/Netflix.(2GB per day). Unlimited call to all networks.
And earn free AirAsia big points for every reload.

Free delivery right now!

 Get New TuneTalk SIM  Port-in to Tunetalk

Based on above prepaid plan comparison table, TuneTalk CUN 48 is the easy winner here.

The package comes with 10GB monthly data, unlimited calls to all networks, unlimited social app and chat app, and a whopping 60GB Youtube & Netflix. All of these awesome features but cost only RM48 per month. Well play~TuneTalk~

The one killer feature of TuneTalk CUN that I have repeatedly mentioned is its 10GB booster add-on that cost only RM10. So, its only RM1 for 1GB of data. That’s a freaking steal when you see most other plans monthly data cost as much as RM5 to RM 7price per gigabytes.

Personally, I am using TuneTalk CUN 48 right now with occasional 10GB Booster addon. I find it to suit me very well. I can browse internet freely, download small to medium file over the phone without worrying my data will be depleted. And i watch a tons of Youtube Video.

Check out my personal usage record below.

Clarification: My video quota shown is different from CUN48 because I am still using the value pack which better suits my usage pattern. CUN48 is 2GB for video which refreshes daily.

Again, TuneTalk is operating under Celcom network. So there’s little to worry on its network coverage issue. I have not encountered any issue so far.

The competitions:

DigiBigBonus RM70 has 14GB monthly data, unlimited call, free 3GB daily from 1pm-7pm. It is not a bad prepaid plan but cost too much when you compare it to TuneTalk Cun48. With RM70, TuneTalk CUN 48 can buy 2 times data booster which is equivalent to 30GB mobile data that you’re free to use however you want.

redONE RM50 has no unlimited call to all networks is a big turn down. It is no different from redONE RM30 but only extra 5GB monthly data quota.

Hotlink Red RM70 is just too expensive with only 10GB monthly data. However, it is the only prepaid plan comes with unlimited SMS. If you need to SMS frequently, then go for this prepaid plan.

Celcom Xpax RM79 is a big let down. No unlimited call at such a high price point and the extra perk is not much beneficial.

U Mobile GX12 weekly only cost RM48 per month. It is a very interesting package. But, I just can’t recommend it because of its poor network coverage.


Malaysians are lucky to have a competitive and lively mobile network ecosystem. We can choose from many mobile service providers, spend some time to explore the options available in the market and there is surely one plan which suits you best.

There is no “one size fits all” condition when it comes to mobile plan choice. Everyone has different needs and consumption behaviour. Nevertheless, I believe all my recommended picks are best for the average consumers in Malaysia with a smaller budget in mind.

Hi bro, could you compare the tonewow plans? I found it quiet competitive.. with rm30 we get 750mins call to all networks and 8gb data (5gb hi-speed).. with rm50 we get unlimited calls and 89gb data (10gb hi-speed)! All the data can be used for hotspot.

I just changed to Maxis Hotlink Prepaid RM 45 Unlimited data at 6 Mbps, unlimited calls to local network, add another RM 5 for unlimited hotspot. I really think this is the best package at the moment. RM 50 for everything unlimited 🙂

As an active user of Hotlink RM35 package (prepaid) based in Ipoh, I’m truly frustrated with the line service recently. I can’t even send or receive simply a Wechat or WhatsApp message for the whole day while I’m outdoor. I was a Maxis user before MCO but since I cannot finish the data subscribed under MaxisOne 128 plan, I switched to Hotlink, thought the line would be fine as it’s under Maxis. Well, I found that I’m wrong – at least in Ipoh, it’s suck.

what will be the cheapest prepaid mobile internet? just need the internet access when the kids are outside the wifi coverage.

Many plans by various telcos have no support or limited support for wifi modem and hotspot/tethering. You should include that factor in your review. Thank you.

once we know the apps that can bypass the ‘limited hotspot data limit’, we can get full use by extend it to our pc & family.. should we mention the apps..?
so we only need to choose the speedy, stable & widest coverage telco.. then 10 or 20 RM differ would not be an issue..

Hi Kai,

With TuneTalk Vibe 30 already discontinued and Ookyo dropping dead next month, this article is getting outdated real fast. Hope to see an updated article soon. If there is an upcoming review for prepaid plans in 2020, I hope telcos like Unifi mobile (BEBAS), OneXOX and Yoodo will be included into the comparison along with other major telcos.

I’m hoping that the updated review will be ready soon, so I know which plans will suit my data-heavy needs the best.

Best wishes~

HI Kai,

What would you say is the best Sim for data allowance? I was hoping to get at least 20gb for my P30 Pro as I will be in Malaysia for a month traveling.
Data is most important for me but I could also do with 100-300 mins talk time, txts are not that important to me.

I noticed the review is a year old now, has anything changed (Any better deals?)

Many thanks for your time and support.

Kind regards.

I WILL NEVER BUY DIGI AGAIN. Twice Digi SIM cards have suddenly failed with loads of credit locked inside. Went in to Digi Service Centre and they said they could do nothing because I could not produce my original old passport! They would not accept copy or my new passport. All details the same except PP number change. What! So I had to manually recover all my contacts, change my business card and website contact, call or visit my banks, business and personal contacts to give them my new SIM number. Of course Digi never refunded the credit in the failed cards. Bad technology, poor coverage, brain dead customer services, no credit refund. This company deserves to be struck off.

First off, thanks for all your hardwork in helping us netizens summarize information for these mobile plans. Going through their individual websites (esp Digi) is a massive headache and sore to the eyes. Anyways, I’ve been a Maxis postpaid user for more than a decade now (currently on Maxis 128) and been thinking of changing to a prepaid as sometimes I’m paying the 128 even though I’m not in the country.

I’m getting 40GB with unlimited calls & SMS for RM 128++. Also tried converting to Yoodo cos of the strong data customisation but the app crashes on my phone despite all my efforts to use it (even reset phone to factory settings!). Can you recommend any prepaid plans that I can go for? Thanks heaps

Thanks for the informative reviews. Yoodo is not reliable as i could not access its data server despite still having 2GB balance. This is quite frequent and hence, opting me to search for an alternative. Also, Yoodo does not allow SMS to nos. 66300, etc.

Btw, i could not subscribe to OOKYO Prepaid 30 as it indicated not available in Malaysia. Please do advise on this. I am staying in Kuala Lumpur.

You should get XOX as the validity is 28 months. Upon buying a xox number plus topup RM60 is RM70 where you can get 333 minutes validity following your prepaid card validity. If you want data topup RM50 and buy season pass 10 GB. Every month subscribe from season pass min 500Mb from season pass so your season pass will last 20 months provided you do not use more than 500Mb monthly. If you subscribe 1Gb monthly then your 10Gb can only last for 10 months. Every time you topup your validity extends RM1 equals 1 day ie above you topup RM110 thus your expiry will extend by 110 days from 28 months. Good for low user and people working overseas ythat only use their mobile when they return to malaysia.

That is a shame because I’m looking for a well rounded prepaid (with data, free calls to all networks, and reasonable rates) under RM30 and this was perfect.

I don’t think there’s any such service for all the telco now. Unless there’s something i missed out?

Alternatively there’s also Hotlink Flex but it’s RM40/month but comes with unlimited calls/sms and 5GB. It’s a postpaid plan but it’s not exactly cheap when compared to Vibe.

There’s also ONEXOX though it’s doesn’t seem to be in the list. Any particular reason for this?

Like me,a data hungry person, am using hotlink fast plan + yes konfem 4G plan.

Hotlink fast every week get 2GB data sat/sun. RM3 10GB or reward 2GB 1-7am to download big files. Speed 50-70Mbps at my location.

Yes konfem 4G plan unlimited data speed capped at 4Mbps RM30/month, for everyday use.
(Need band 38/40 lte compatible phone to use & manually set APN setting in simcard setting if the APN is empty)

So if I topped up my maxis every week RM5, I will probably have to pay RM50 per month.

You’re welcomed bro.

My condolence for your Unifi mobile experience. Unifi mobile to me is pretty expensive.
Better to have backup.

Well, I’m using lenovo zuk z2 plus, so I think it’s dual 4G support phone ? But I can only use one cellular data line at a time. Also, yes konfem 4G prepaid plan cannot be share by mobile hotspot,only your current phone can use the data, except if you have a device that can bypass that lah (using apps or custom rom).

So, if I want to download files more than 1GB and I want it fast, I switch to maxis, else, I switch to my yes 4G. In my experienced using yes konfem 4G, you can still watch youtube in hd (1080p) quality without buffering (4Mbps lol). I haven’t try playing online game yet.

Yes has volte but I never use it (no one calling me,gg), from other’s people saying, the call quality is pretty good.Ofcourse, you need phone that has that features lah.

If you subscribe to TuneTalk +Vibe 30 for RM28.30, you will not get the free 4GB high-speed internet.
I’m not sure whether it’s due to the price you pay is less than RM30, or the subscription of +Vibe plan is not considered as top up.

Hi Kai, thank you for the insightful analysis.

Just a heads-up: XPax Youth (Prepaid) offers 50% extra data for eligible customers, so the price per GB is more favourable compared to regular XPax plans. For instance, the 15GB monthly plan is available for RM50, thus the price per GB is at RM3.33/GB.

Do you have any plans to include special offers like above into the comparison?

Also, why does your “prepaid plans under 60” comparison table include 3 plans above RM60?

Thanks Kai.
I was actually looking at Tune Talk (“TT”) other plans after looked at the TT Online Plans +VIBE.
I found that there’s a TT 120 Gigabytes (“GB”) Yearly Plan priced at RM200 which gives user 10GB/Month for 12 months (“plan”).
Hence, I think you may want to add this plan in your article to provide another option for people ONLY needs data plan. As the plan does not offer free calls/sms.
So basically the user just need to pay approximately RM 16.67 per month for 10GB of data which is approximately RM1.67 of price per GB.
Meanwhile when you top up RM100 after you sign up, TT will give you 100 days validity + 8GB (for 15 days)
Another top up of RM100 on the 16th day will give you another 100 days validity + 8GB (for 15 days)
Basically you would have 16 GB free data on the first month before subscribe to the plan if you top up in that way.
So you may ask if the data plan are for one year, do we have to top up RM 365 in order to get one year validity or a smarter way which is purchase the one year validity for RM28.
Let me tell you, there’s no need to worry about this yet.
According to the terms and condition, you will get one year validity after subscribing the plan.
“120GB* Yearly Plan – 10GB* allocation per month (30 days) for 12 months from date and time of subscription at the cost of RM200 per year and comes with 1 year airtime validity from date of subscription. (*Limited Time Offer)”.
Source:, “Terms and Conditions; 2(e)”
Hence at the moment, by paying only RM200. You can get 8GB (for 15 days) + 8GB (for 15 days) + 10GB (30 days) for 12 months.
A total of 136 GB for only RM 200 which gives approximately RM1.47 of price per Gigabytes and it can last for 390 days.
Last but not least, although this plan are extremely cheap.
Here are the cons, which you have to ensure the place you went and stay have extremely good coverage for Celcom services or at least acceptable before you decided to make this significant decision.
Also the plan are marked with asterisk which means Limited Time Offer. Grab it fast before TT discontinued the plan like they did on +VIBE 200
Be sure to correct me if you found something wrong about my strategy. Cheers =]

you are wrong on your yoodo statement

“However, there is one huge disadvantage of Yoodo. It does not allow data/call time/SMS add-on in middle of the month which can be risky when you over utilized your call time or mobile data. You do not have any means to top up additional call time or mobile data.”

you can add more in the middle of your plan using ‘booster’ ie buy more in the app
