Telcos offer Keluarga Malaysia packages

PUTRAJAYA: Major telecommunication companies (telcos) will be offering two special packages, namely the Keluarga Malaysia Teen Package and the Keluarga Malaysia Device Package, for six months starting today.

Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said that it was the government’s initiative to help teenagers and students get access to the Internet and for the less fortunate to own affordable smart devices.

“It is also proof of the government’s commitment in ensuring that each person will get Internet access at a reasonable price,” he told a press conference after the launch yesterday.

The telcos offering the packages are Celcom, Digi, Maxis, U Mobile, Telekom Malaysia and YTL.

Annuar said it was anticipated that the packages would benefit over 200,000 people within the six-month period.

The Teen Package is a special prepaid package for teenagers and students, aged between 12 and 21, to enjoy 20-gigabyte (GB) data for 90 days at a price of RM30.

Annuar said the package would enable the users to do simple activities such as sending messages and surfing the Internet.

“Online learning or work-from-home activities can also be done without data constraints. For 20GB worth of data, users can also download videos or play games to relax,” he said.

The Device Package will enable people to own and upgrade to smart devices with voice over long-term evolution (VoLTE) technology for free. VoLTE technology enables users to enjoy high-quality voice calls on the 4G network.

The package also includes 1GB of free data.
