PETALING JAYA, 12 FEBRUARY 2020 – Celcom Axiata Berhad (Celcom) today, unveiled its all-new innovative postpaid plan Celcom Mega with Unlimited Data. The first postpaid plan in Malaysia that offers consumers the flexibility to choose their preferred Internet experience based on their usage preference, with either access to Celcom Mega Unlimited Data quota or Lightning Mobile Internet Speed, on the nation’s widest network.
The demand for more internet quota has been rapidly increasing over the years as more and more content are available on the Internet. As consumers continue to engage on the Internet in a wider variety of digital content, there are two separate rising demands for Internet access, which are ‘unlimited Internet’ or ‘fast Internet speeds’. Thus, the all-new Celcom MEGA™ postpaid plan has been innovated with the flexibility and freedom for consumers to choose their desired Internet experience, together with additional innovative features that are beyond just data offerings.
One of MEGA™’s innovative feature allows consumers to trade in their unused Internet quota for cashback at the end of each billing cycle, giving more value for their purchase. This innovative offering is the first of its kind in Malaysia and it allows unutilised Internet quota to be traded in for cashback via Boost e-wallet, with 10GB equivalent to RM5 cashback.
Celcom MEGA™ base postpaid plan comes with 30GB Internet quota for only RM80 per month with unlimited calls to all networks. From there, consumers have the freedom to choose add-ons for additional benefits, either from the Unlimited Mobile Internet or Lightning Mobile Internet speed ‘ala carte menu’.
With Unlimited Mobile Internet starting with only an additional RM18 per month, consumers who desire worry-free, consistent and constant internet access with low latency, can enjoy unlimited Internet quota specifically catered for enhanced streaming experiences, such as full access to unlimited full high definition, gaming, content creation and high-quality music streaming.
Alternative to Unlimited Mobile Internet, also with an additional RM18 per month, consumers can choose Lightning Mobile Internet Speed with whopping amounts of Internet quota with high- speed Internet access. This plan is perfect for consumers who desire fast connectivity and huge Internet quota. The key feature of Lightning Mobile Internet Speed is that unused Internet quota can be traded-in for cashback via Boost’s e-wallet and offers FREE Roaming in 12 countries, on its highest plan at RM188.
Consumers can also opt to share their Internet quota up to three supplementary lines by adding Family Lines at only RM40 per line (additional 15GB Internet per line) to their primary plan.
Celcom MEGA™ postpaid plans also offer exciting add-ons that will further complement the various consumer digital lifestyles. These add-ons are namely:
- Celcom Passport™ – consumers who love to travel can ‘Roam Like Home’ by bringing along their local internet quota overseas,
- INTERNETshare™ – Internet sharing among Family Lines for only RM5 per month,

“Internet experience is unique to every individual, and with our latest innovative Celcom MEGA™ postpaid plan, Malaysians can now personalise their very own digital lifestyles and experiences. Those who prefer worry-free Internet connectivity can opt for our Unlimited Mobile Internet plan with unlimited Internet quota for non-stop Internet experience, regardless for streaming, gaming, browsing and many more, at consistent internet speeds.
