Hi! Welcome to Prepaid Suggestions for Malaysia. Some tourist from other country and visit to Malaysia want to use internet while outside the WiFi area, data roaming is the worse nightmare for you. I can suggest some.

Since 1 June 2018, all prepaid starter pack will get extra 6% credit while the price will remain the same. For example, prepaid starter pack sells at RM10 and preloaded credit is RM5. You'll get a total of RM5.60 begins 1 June 2018 when you buy new prepaid starter pack. T&C maybe difference on some telco. On 1 till 6 September 2018, all prepaid top up will charge 6% SST (top up RM10 get RM9.40). Begins 6 Spetember 2018 onwards, tourist will charge 6% SST while Malaysians will be excluded SST.


You'll need IC card or passport to register after picking your internet plan and SIM card number.

Which one is suitable to you?

For those who stay for a while, get a tourist SIM. Some telcos like U Mobile offers free SIM card to tourist but required to top up RM30 to get unlimited 3mbps data with 3GB mobile hotspot.

For long term stay, get regular SIM pack. Many telcos offers unlimited data usage (like unlimited internet, unlimited Facebook, unlimited YouTube, etc) or big data usage (usually over 3GB).

For those who enter to Malaysia multiple times and rarely top up, get Onexox SIM card. Buy SIM pack (RM10) and top up RM10 can get up to 2 years 4 months.
