Hotlink has a new prepaid plan announced today, called Hotlink Bagus (Bagus means good, in malay). This all in one prepaid plan give customers access to cheap voice, text, mobile internet, idd and roaming. It seems like 5 is hotlink’s new lucky number. This is a 5 in 1 plan as stated before, and the starter plan is only RM5!
This is actually a pretty sweet deal. The plan give you tons of choices for you heavy or light usage customers. You can easily switch between them to get maximum saving. But in other words, you actually need to plan ahead of your usage, and understand the all the alternatives to know whats best for you. Is either I am too stupid to understand or the plan is too confusing… But anyway, here are their plans.
I am so lazy that i cant actually brain those plans and I “borrow” some of the stuff from MalaysianWireless as he had sorted out most of the stuff as below… LOL

Personally I think Hotlink Bagus is bagus for a lot of people, especially youth, students, migrants or foreign workers, and they can make good use of them at a lower rate. For me? I just want to have a data plan and Im good to go, as i rarely make calls and sms 😛
Will be excited to see what DiGi, Celcom, UMobile or other telco’s respond to this… LET THE PREPAID WAR BEGIN!!!
After the whole day of Bagus talk by hotlink, if you can excuse me now, I will go have some sugus 😛
