[UPDATE] Pay RM38 for 3GB data: Celcom’s First Basic 38 is Malaysia’s most affordable postpaid internet plan yet

[UPDATE] Earlier last month, there were Celcom First Basic 38 subscribers complained that the data connection speed for this plan has been capped although Celcom claims that there wasn’t any data speed limit restricted on this plan. However, the so-called “capped data connection speed”  has nowhere to be seen now as some users can hit over 100Mbps of download speed during their Speedtest.

Shown below is one of the Speedtest done by a Celcom First Basic 38 user.


Celcom has just introduced their new postpaid plan, First™ Basic 38 today which is targeting local internet users who is looking for higher data volume at a more affordable monthly commitment.

The First™ Basic 38 is Celcom’s latest postpaid internet plan that offers 2GB of monthly internet data usage and 2GB Celcom WiFi.

However, in conjunction with the introduction of this plan, Celcom is currently offering additional 1GB of data+1GB Celcom WiFi with 50 minutes calls and 50 SMS for free when you signup for this plan within this promotional period which is ongoing from today (April 23, 2015) until further notice.


For voice call, video call, SMS and MMS that hit the quota limit, it will cost you 15 sen for calls to all network and 15 sen per SMS/MMS. When you have fully utilised your available data, your internet will be throttled to 64kbps until your next bill cycle.

On top of that, if you have unused internet data at the end of your bill cycle, this plan allows you to carry forward your leftover internet data to your following month. The maximum data that is able to carry forward will be capped at 3GB only for this plan.

**It should be noted that after this promotion period ends, new signup for First™ Basic 38 will only enjoy 2GB of monthly internet data usage and 2GB Celcom WiFi with no further complimentary calls, SMS and internet data. Those who subscribed this plan during the promotional period will continue to enjoy the complimentary benefits given until you unsubscribe your plan.
