Astro and Maxis has announced their partnership today to offer an all-in-one broadband and content package called Astro & Broadband. According to Astro, customers can save up to MYR720 for a period of two years when they sign up for the Astro and Maxis broadband combo, which is already available from today onwards.
This package offers the same Maxis Home Fibre options of 30Mbps at MYR89/month and 100Mbps at MYR129/month with the usual 24-month contract. The Astro aspect of the package requires you to add content packages that are priced from MYR39.95/month for the base Family Pack. The starting packages for Astro are:
Family Pack – from MYR39.95/monthValue Pack – from MYR80/monthSports Pack Ala Carte – from MYR90.95/monthSuper Pack – from MYR146/monthSuper Pack Plus – from MYR178/month
Based on this, the most affordable combo option is MYR128.95/month before tax on a 30Mbps plan. The most expensive combo option will cost MYR307/month but it will give you the highest rebates offered.
The exact rebate that customers get from this package ranges from MYR5 to MYR25 per month and depends on the type of the Astro content pack that they choose. Here's a chart of how much savings you will get over a period of 24 months:
As such, the high MYR720 savings is if you get the highest combos and complete your contract of 24 months subscription. If you're an existing Astro customer, you can also sign up for the bundle but will need to renew your contract for the next 24-months to get the rebates.
As of now, this package offering is only available at Maxis fibre coverage areas. If you're keen to subscribe or find out more, you can do so via Astro's website.
