Maxis Broadband Myths: 13 Reasons Not To Subcribe

If I watch commercial ads or look at the banner, I would personally describe Maxis Broadband as,
  • the new innovative way to surfing internet.
  • open the new world of wireless connection.
  • exciting moment with multimedia enriched.
  • the world is at fingertips.
  • 3.6Mbps: Watch video online without hiccups and buffers.

Get faster Internet connection with Maxis Wired Broadband and enjoy Internet speeds of up to 1.0M through Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) technology. It’s goodbye to slow downloads and endless waiting!

But it is actually a full of swindling, twisting, and turning. Maxis Broadband is not like what you think.
Here's 13 reasons why you should not subscribe to Maxis Broadband.

Unlimited? It's really misleading advertisement.

Each customer’s total usage per month shall NOT exceed 3GB of data volume transmitted (total upload and download usage). This is to ensure that no individual hogs the bandwidth at all times. 5.3.2 If a customer wishes to use more than the volume permitted, a written request should be made to Maxis. 5.3.3 Maxis reserves the right to reject the said application or charge for any additional data volume transmitted from what is already allocated.

  • It is automatically turn to 256kbps if your bandwith reach 3GB which is much more worst than basic package.
  • Maxis sales representative didn't show transparency value. They tell you lies, unclear, and incomplete information.
  • Most online game application cannot run properly or can't run at all. Only show pending processes.
  • You cannot Torrent and P2P. Blockage on 99% ports and sharing is becoming impossible.
  • VPN Service to connect to your workplace is unusable.
  • You cannot do Skype and other VOIP application which means you cannot do video conferencing,
  • Extremely slow browsing experience during night time.
  • Frequent internet disconnection during browsing. It gets worse when it's raining.
4.8 Maxis may, at its sole discretion, automatically disconnect the customer’s internet session after a period of inactivity, which may vary from 20 minutes to 30 minutes. This automatic disconnection is to allow maximum network performance.
If you want to say something to say about Maxis Broadband, please do not hesitate to put it on comment.

I totally agreee with you. Lucky there are currently dispose the 18 months agreement. I will go to maxis center to cancel my package tomorrow or on monday. Cannot tahan already!!!!

My suggestion is that you cancel quickly and find service that the speed is consistent and no blockage.

thanks for your advise, and i wondering if there any service that the speed is consistent and no blockage in malaysia? i don't think so. i think our government should allow outside player to compete with our broadband provider so there will be a competition and better service in the future.

The best services so far provided in Malaysia, are TMNET and jaring. But when we do sharing files on torrent, they downsize our bandwidth speed. I agree with you, we should give foreign competitor a chance to spice up ISP industry.

Luckily I didn't purchase the Maxis USB modem. Thank you for giving such valuable advice here.

A warning from one consumer to another:


If you love your kids, don’t let them use Maxis broadband.
Kids who surf slower, learn slower and with the added pressure from having an unstable internet connection and constant disconnection could lead them to having suicidal tendencies at such a young age.
