What you get
Enjoying all these benefits is quite simple. Subscribe to the plan and enter into a commitment not to go back for a certain period of time. A favorable decision will offer you the following benefits.
- High-speed Internet at the lowest rate
- The facility to carry forward unused data
According to analysts, Celcom is the first mobile carrier that allows its subscribers to carry forward unused data to the next month. Besides, the lowest rate goes against the standard practices. In the past, telcos attracted subscribers offering value added services. They also feel that a drastic reduction in the rate may cause trouble. The expense may not match well with the investment needed to expand coverage.
Even with this new development and the concerns it raises, observers remain optimistic. They are of the view that as broadband expands, the price will go down further. However, balancing between the huge expenses involved in maintaining the network and such lower rate is going to be a tough job.
Time is running fast. If you want to get the most from this fierce competition, be a part of the rat race; subscribe to this entry-level plan from Celcom.
