MAXIS Bhd has refreshed its existing Home Wireless Internet offering with a new 21Mbps Home Wi-Fi modem. With faster internet speeds, customers will be able to enjoy uninterrupted HD video streaming, and upload or download large files at more than twice the speeds previously enjoyed, the company said in a statement.
The new 21Mbps Home Wi-Fi modem is easy to set up with plug-and-play convenience, and allows multiple users to go online simultaneously, Maxis claimed.
“The 21Mbps Home Wi-Fi modem, which is available for free with 20GB, 28GB and 48GB Maxis Home Wireless Internet packages, will provide users with a truly enhanced experience with faster connectivity,” said Ebru Dorman (pic), head of Maxis Home and Broadband.
“The way we consume information is evolving because increasingly more content is available today in high definition video formats instead of simple web pages. This makes fast, reliable and affordable internet speeds essential.
“The Home Wireless Internet plans also offer the best range of internet quotas and rates to suit different needs and lifestyles,” she added.
Existing Home Wireless Internet users can visit their nearest Maxis Center to upgrade to the new modem.
Maxis’ Home Wireless Internet plans include a 3GB plan at RM59 per month and an 8GB plan at RM79 per month, which come with free 100 voice minutes and free 7.2Mbps Home Wi-Fi modem and DECT phone worth RM380.
