Maxis launches usage-based internet service for businesses

- Businesses only pay for their actual consumption
- Utilises a flexible & scalable model, allowing upgrades upon need
The various movement control order (MCO) phases in Malaysia have changed the way many companies operate. What’s also shifting are the demands businesses have for their internet. If a company, for instance, needs to move their workforce into work-from-home shifts, would the typical internet plan for businesses make sense?
Maxis is looking to cater to these changing needs with the launch of Usage-Based Internet, something they have dubbed as Malaysia’s “first pay-per-use Direct Internet Access (DIA)”. This theoretically allows businesses to have more flexibility and cost-efficiency.
Maxis’ Usage-Based Internet is delivered with a differentiated experience through a Software-Defined Programmable Network in Malaysia, which is MEF (Metro Ethernet Forum) 3.0-certified.
This Programmable Network enables businesses to reliably scale their capacity to meet the requirements of the fast-changing IT environments while operating at consistently high performance.
For businesses with changing Internet consumption during peak and off-peak periods, or organisations with large data centre and hosting requirements, this offers an ideal proposition that empowers businesses with real-time network automation and intelligent insights.
“In these extraordinary times, we feel it is absolutely vital for businesses to find the right balance between accelerating their digital aspirations to ensure that they are future-ready, while managing cost," says Maxis chief enterprise business officer, Paul McManus (pic).
“Usage-Based Internet offers a smart, innovative, flexible and scalable solution on the best network that allows businesses to optimise their capacity and investment needs based on shifting and seasonal business demands.”
Under the Usage-Based Internet service, businesses only need to pay for actual consumption. With this, Maxis claims that they will be able to save up to 50% or more in operation costs.
Furthermore, businesses are able to enjoy three times more bandwidth for increased performance and experience. The Usage-Based Internet also runs on a network that is cloud-ready.
Users have options for seamless upgrade so that businesses can better meet changing demands. Usage-Based Internet is backed by Maxis’ Programmable Network for business-grade connectivity, as well as Maxis Enterprise-Grade Managed Services and 24/7 support by Maxis’ tech team.
