Celcom Broadband New Package Lowest Price @ RM38

This morning I was at Menara Celcom for the Exclusive Media Briefing about Launching of Celcom New Broadband Package. Arrived on time but forced to park around the living area because cars were parked everywhere. Thanks BlupBlup for this as I met new faces such as writer from The Sun, The Star, Kosmos, NanYang +++ in this event.

Celcom Axiata Berhad [formerly known as Celcom (Malaysia) Berhad] announce its new Broadband packages that start from as low as RM48 per month, as compared with RM68 per month previously.


During the promotional period, starting now till end of August, all new signups for Celcom Broadband packages will be offered a RM10 discount, bringing the price even lower to RM38, for the first three months. This revamp is also in line with the Government’s call for more affordable packages to encourage higher broadband penetration, especially in rural areas. The Entry Package also comes with FREE USB modem, offering volume of 1Gb at 384Kbps.


This event is a lot different as most of them are journalist who take notes of what Jefri said =)
As for me I took more photos instead.
*This remind me of "Bloggers versus Journalist" in #asianbsmc*



I am looking forward for their future plan. Amongst the planned activities to improve Celcom’s network quality includes upgrading of existing sites and enhancing its network coverage. Coverage wise, Celcom is the only mobile broadband service provider that covers almost all districts nationwide. On top of that, 900 additional new sites nationwide will be installed by end of the year. Celcom will also introduce Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) 900 in rural areas to provide extended 3G service. At the end of the year, Celcom aims to cover at least 76% of the population.

Celcom has also planned to increase its capacity by four fold by end of the year via upgrading its existing sites to High Speed Packet Access Plus (HSPA+) or High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA), migrating its sites to Internet Protocol-enabled (IP-enabled) base stations and fiberising all key backhaul nodes. Celcom has also commissioned new IP transit in Kuching to cater for increasing broadband demand in Sabah and Sarawak.



Attention: Lowest price of Celcom Broadband at only RM38 for all new signups during promotional period (3rd Aug - 31th Aug 2010)

As a blogger I will blog about something extra of course. *This is one of the benefits when compare bloggers with journalists* =) Here are the foods provided for us and I quite like them especially the chicken wing and the bread. Thanks for that Celcom!



Before we left we get to grab a Cute Blue Bear back home all thanks to Celcom. Too bad no more Esbearanyol (Spain) or Netherlands Blue Bear.



I grabbed a Beargentina home with me because he look nice with the fare blue shirt.

So who is cuter? Bear Chad or Beargentina? Haha!

Thanks again to BlupBlup for this exclusive event!! *although only two little Bluppers attended this event* Nice to meet Cleffairy there too.

  5. What we see:

    -Broadband RM38 per month
    -Upgrade free to 512kbps for RM68 package

    What we DONT SEE!!!!!

    -RM38 per month is only for 3 month. After that normal price will be RM48.
    -RM48 is only for 1GB bandwidth. WTF?
    -Bandwith for RM68 package reduced from 5GB to 3GB. WTF?
    -Price for additional bandwidth INCREASED from RM5 per 1GB to RM15 per 1GB. THat's 200% insane increment!!! WTF?

    Seems like you have stated out the main points of their new package.

    I didn't know how is their previous package only after I saw your comment, thanks!

    I believe most people would prefer more bandwidth quota than faster speed. As myself is a high bandwidth user, it is very easy to hit 3GB quota limit.

    And the other thing about RM15/extra bandwidth, it really expensive...

    Hmm, it is best to apply fix line broadband package if we are not traveling much with the laptop.

    Thanks again for your comment and I hope they noticed the feedback and make a change.

  7. to noobblogger,

    totally agree.i was going to add my quota but realize the prize is 2.5 times higher.then i go search and found out about this new package.i always add up to 20g a months sometimes.if 20g usually cost me additional rm80, now i will cost me rm200.its rm120 extra. Just 2 choice for me right now, limit my usage on internet (which is hard) or change back to maxis broadband. The coverage is both good in my area.i change to celcom before because its cheaper and have more usage for same price after calculate.

    The speed increase a bit but the usage is much lower n expensive.no thanx
