SIM Cards in Malaysia: The Best Prepaid Plans | 2024 Guide

Malaysia – known for the Petronas Twin Towers, jungles & the Batu Caves.

The year-round weather also makes it a popular travel destination for those wanting to escape the cold winter in their own country.

The issue with Malaysia, however, is that there is so much to do that you would need a lifetime to explore it all.

Several mountains can be explored, such as Mount Kinabalu.

Many exciting theme parks are scattered across the country as well, including LEGOLAND Malaysia and Sunway Lagoon.

And for those who want to stay away from all the crowdedness, you can even visit several islands, such as Sipadan Island.

Oh, and do not forget about East Malaysia, with the states Sabah and Sarawak and the Federal Territory of Labuan – all on Borneo (shared with Brunei and Indonesia).

Malaysia is an affordable travel destination, but it may be expensive for Southeast Asian standards.

To keep things even more inexpensive for yourself, get a Malaysian SIM card or eSIM to enjoy local rates.

International roaming can be expensive. Plus, SIM cards in Malaysia are not expensive at all.

So, how much do Malaysian SIM cards cost?

You can get a Malaysian SIM card for between 7 MYR (1.50 USD) to 50 MYR (10.70 USD) from Hotlink/Maxis, Digi, Celcom, U Mobile & Yes in their stores. The MVNOs and sub-brands (RedONE, speakOUT, Tune Talk & Yoodo) sell SIM cards for between 3 MYR (0.65 USD) to 10 MYR (2.15 USD – from resellers). SIM cards are also sold at various airports, including Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL).

Not to mention that most mobile operators and a few mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) sell SIM cards targeted at tourists.

Such as speakOUT, with its 50 MYR SIM card with 100 GB for 7 days – the most generous (prepaid) data allowance in Malaysia.

With more than 15 mobile operators and MVNOs, I selected Malaysia's ten best prepaid SIM cards (for tourists).

The other options are either whack or (almost) impossible to get for short-term travelers.

Oh, and those living in Malaysia do not have to click this page away – you will be learning a lot about all the options in the country too 😉.

In this guide, I will tell you everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Malaysia. Let's do this.

What is the Best SIM Card in Malaysia?

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Malaysia, I recommend going with Digi or Celcom. Digi has the fastest speeds. Celcom has the best 4G/LTE coverage. Consider Celcom's MVNOs (speakOUT, redOne Malaysia Tune Talk & Yoodo) for great network performance at (slightly) lower prices.

Phone Travel Wiz Approved Seal

Malaysia has six five mobile operators, one sub-brand & three Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) offering prepaid services easily accessible to travelers:

  • Hotlink by Maxis
  • Digi Malaysia
  • Celcom (Axiata) Malaysia
  • U Mobile Malaysia
  • Yes Malaysia (4G/LTE & 5G NR only)
  • redONE Malaysia (Celcom (Axiata) Malaysia MVNO)
  • speakOUT Malaysia (Digi Malaysia MVNO)
  • Tune Talk (Celcom (Axiata) Malaysia MVNO)
  • Yoodo (Celcom (Axiata) Malaysia sub-brand)
Cellular Connectivity Illustration by Phone Travel Wiz

In this guide, I will only stick to the mobile operators and MVNOs bolded above, as they are the most popular options for travelers.

I decided to stop reviewing MVNOs (in most cases) and spend that testing time on travel eSIMs (like the ones for Malaysia, for example) instead because most Phone Travel Wiz readers avoid MVNOs. But if you really want a SIM card from an unbolded option, you have to do the research yourself, I am afraid.

Anyone 12 or older living in or visiting Malaysia can buy a Malaysian SIM card with restrictions, but you do have to comply with Malaysia's SIM card registration regulations.

And if you are younger than 12, you can still get a SIM card if your parents buy one for you (in their name).

The main restriction is that you can only have five active SIM cards in your name in Malaysia.

Besides those restrictions, you are free to use Malaysian SIM cards.

Regarding the registration requirements, you must show your passport at the point of sale.

Where Can You Buy a Malaysian SIM Card (+Prices)?

You can expect to pay the following for Malaysian SIM cards:

  • Hotlink by Maxis: 10 MYR, 25 MYR, 40 MYR & 50 MYR
  • Digi Malaysia: 8 MYR, 10 MYR & 15 MYR
  • Celcom (Axiata) Malaysia: 10 MYR
  • U Mobile Malaysia: 10 MYR
  • Yes Malaysia: 30 MYR

The following mobile operators also have SIM cards targeting tourists:

  • Celcom (Axiata) Malaysia: 30 MYR

Be aware that SIM cards sold at airports can be more expensive than the prices mentioned earlier.

Use the Wise Currency Converter tool (free) for up-to-date MYR (Malaysian Ringgit) to your currency (let's say SGD – Singaporean Dollar) exchange rates.

For reference, below are some exchange rates between MYR and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1 MYR = 0.20 USD
  • 10 MYR = 2.15 USD
  • 100 MYR = 21.40 USD
  • 1000 MYR = 214.05 USD

(Travel) eSIMs for Malaysia

The use of (travel) eSIMs has exploded in recent years.

Not only do more phones have eSIM capability (some US-sold iPhones are eSIM-only), but the number of providers adopting technology has proliferated as well.

This includes local mobile operators offering eSIM and platforms selling eSIMs (travel eSIMs).

If you want a local Malaysian eSIM, you can get one from Digi or U Mobile.

But remember that you have to comply with Malaysia's SIM card registration regulations, even when you get a Malaysian eSIM.

If you do not wish to deal with registration for whatever reason, like privacy, consider getting a travel eSIM for Malaysia.

Many eSIM providers have eSIMs for Malaysia only, eSIMs for multiple Asian destinations & even global eSIMs, which I discuss in my Malaysia eSIM buying guide.

Buying an eSIM for Malaysia Guide (logos of SimOptions, Nomad, Asialink, Discover+, Sambungkan, Holafly, Alosim & Airalo)

Here is a quick introduction to your Malaysia travel eSIM options:

And I know you love discounts, so use one of these codes when getting a travel eSIM:

  • Airalo: NEWMAY15 for 15% off (if you have never bought an Airalo eSIM before). Otherwise, AIRALOMAY10 for 10% off (for existing users) – only the first 3000 users can redeem either discount code)
  • Alosim: PTW for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Holafly: PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Nomad: ADU123 for 3 USD off (on your first-ever Nomad order only)

Malaysian Prepaid SIM Cards Explored

Below, I will guide you through Hotlink by Maxis, Digi Malaysia, Celcom (Axiata) Malaysia, U Mobile & Yes Malaysia, and go through:

  • Background information
  • Mobile coverage
  • SIM card types, prices, and availability
  • Recharge/top-up information
  • Combo plans, data plans, and special packs (such as social media packs)

Let's see what Malaysia can offer us in terms of SIM cards.


Hotlink by Maxis Malaysia Logo

Hotlink by Maxis Communications, just Maxis, is the largest mobile operator in Malaysia.

Although it is often overtaken by Digi Malaysia, depending on the quarter.

Hotlink is a secondary brand by Maxis.

While Hotlink initially was Maxis' prepaid brand, it later added postpaid plans to Hotlink.

Hotlink was also the first mobile operator to offer Free Basic Internet, which is data browsing @ 64 Kbps (excruciating slow… but free).

This also caused the elimination of Pay As You Go data overuse fees throughout Malaysia.

Hotlink uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: N/A – shut down in March 2022 (Jendela Project)
  • 4G/LTE: 900 MHz (Band 8), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28) & 3500 MHz (n78) – coming soon through DNB
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: Yes

This is what you will learn about Hotlink:

* Coverage
* How to Get a Hotlink SIM Card & SIM Card Price
* Topping Up Options & Methods + Balance Check
* Plans & Packages
* APN/Internet Settings

Hotlink has extensive coverage throughout Malaysia.

Below are Hotlink's coverage maps produced by Speedtest – on the left, Peninsular (West) Malaysia; on the right, East Malaysia:

You can get a Hotlink SIM card for 10 MYR, 15 MYR, 40 MYR & 50 MYR in Hotlink or Maxis stores and from resellers, including grocery stores, kiosks & gas stations. Hotlink SIM cards are also sold at various airports, including Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) and Penang International Airport (PEN).

The following four Hotlink SIM cards are available:

40 MYRN/A“Unlimited”, 50 GB @ 3 MbpsUnlimited30 days
50 MYRN/A“Unlimited”, 50 GB @ 6 MbpsUnlimited30 days

I do have to warn you that 3 Mbps and 6 Mbps are slow download speeds.

6 Mbps is somewhat reasonable but still annoyingly slow… you may want to get the 25 MYR SIM card if you want unrestricted speeds.

Hotlink used to have a tourist SIM card, called Hotlink Tourist SIM, but it looks like it stopped selling them (just like many of its competitors for some reason).

Hotlink has no eSIMs for prepaid customers.

You may want to get a travel eSIM for Malaysia, which can be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Hotlink (in some cases).

Especially when getting an eSIM covering popular Asian destinations if you do not stay in just Malaysia or a global eSIM valid for up to a year if you want one eSIM to work practically worldwide.

My Malaysia eSIM buying guide analyzes various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Here is a quick introduction to them:

  • Airalo: Sambungkan (Malaysia only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + call and text feature) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Malaysia & Asia (five countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Malaysia & Asia (11 countries) – these eSIMs have unlimited data – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Malaysia, APAC (up to 20 countries), SEA-Oceania (eight countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

For more information, such as the prices and data allowances, check out my Malaysia eSIM buying guide.

But let's continue with Hotlink for now.

Note that Hotlink offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G)) if your phone supports it and you have enabled it in the settings.

Hotlink top-up vouchers are sold in Hotlink and Maxis stores, grocery stores, corner shops & electronics shops throughout Malaysia.

For example, if your voucher code is 123456, you would dial *111*123456#.

You can also tell the salesperson how much credit you want, your phone number, pay, and they will top up your SIM card with the POS system.

Digi Malaysia, just Digi and not to be confused with Digi in Belize, is the second-largest mobile operator in Malaysia.

Although it often overtakes Maxis, making it the largest then.

Telenor is also active in Asia (Pakistan – Telenor and Thailand – Dtac) and Europe (Denmark and Sweden as Telenor and as DNA in Finland).

Digi uses the following frequencies:

It is possible to get a Digi eSIM for the same price as a regular SIM card.

You should consider getting a travel eSIM for Malaysia because they can sometimes be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Digi.

Especially if you get an Asia-wide eSIM or a global eSIM.

I discuss various eSIM options of eSIM providers for Malaysia in my Malaysia eSIM buying guide, which are:

  • Airalo: Sambungkan (Malaysia only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + minutes and SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)

Celcom Axiata Malaysia, just Celcom and not to be confused with Cellcom in Canada, Guinea, Israel, or the United States, is the third-largest mobile operator in Malaysia.

It was the first mobile operator to launch 3G in Malaysia.

Surprisingly, most Malaysian Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) use the Celcom network for some reason.

The Axiata Group is also active in Bangladesh (Robi), Cambodia (Smart), Indonesia (XL Axiata), Nepal (Ncell) & Sri Lanka (Dialog).

Celcom uses the following frequencies:

Celcom has no eSIMs for prepaid customers.

You can consider getting a travel eSIM for Malaysia, which can, in specific scenarios, be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Celcom.

Especially if you get an Asia eSIM (for when you visit at least two or more supported Asian countries) or a global eSIM (for frequent travelers visiting multiple continents).

In my Malaysia eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

But I will introduce them here quickly:

  • Airalo: Sambungkan (Malaysia only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS) – use code AIRALOMAY10 (15% off – first-time users only) or NEWMAY15 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Malaysia & Asia (five countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Malaysia & Asia (11 countries) – include unlimited data – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Malaysia, APAC (15 or 20 countries, depending on the variant), SEA-Oceania (eight countries) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

Once again, check out my Malaysia eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

U Mobile Malaysia

© U Mobile Malaysia

U Mobile Malaysia, just U Mobile, is one of the smaller mobile operators in Malaysia.

It was the first mobile operator to enable VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi) in the country.

U Mobile uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: N-A – national roaming with Maxis
  • 3G: N/A – shut down in March 2022 (Jendela Project)
  • 4G/LTE: 900 MHz (Band 8), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28) & 3500 MHz (n78) – coming soon through DNB
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: Yes

This is what you will learn about U Mobile:

* Coverage
* How to Get a U Mobile SIM Card & SIM Card Price
* Topping Up Options & Methods + Balance Check
* Plans & Packages
* APN/Internet Settings

Coverage – U Mobile Malaysia

U Mobile has extensive coverage throughout Malaysia.

Below are U Mobile's coverage maps produced by Speedtest – on the left, Peninsular (West) Malaysia; on the right, East Malaysia:

You can also check out U Mobile's official coverage map here.

SIM Card Price – U Mobile Malaysia

You can get a U Mobile SIM card, Prepaid 5G-Ready Plan, for 10 MYR with 6 MYR credit and 1 GB of data for 5 days in U Mobile stores and from resellers, including grocery stores, kiosks & gas stations. U Mobile SIM cards are not sold at airports, including Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) and Penang International Airport (PEN).

Be aware: U Mobile introduces a new SIM card (line) basically yearly (like most Malaysian mobile operators).

In 2021, it was called Unlimited FUNZ, which is slowly being discontinued (so if you read about this SIM card somewhere and are confused about me calling it Prepaid 5G-Ready Plan – this is why).

  • Find out how much SIM cards cost in every country, including data-only SIM cards and tourist SIM cards, offered by each mobile operator + information about starter benefits (lookup tool)
SIM Card Prices Worldwide Tool by Phone Travel Wiz

It is possible to get a U Mobile eSIM after purchusing a SIM card and exchanging it for an eSIM (costs 10 MYR).

You may want to get a travel eSIM for Malaysia, which can be cheaper than getting a SIM card from U Mobile (in some cases).

Especially when getting an eSIM covering popular Asian destinations if you do not stay in just Malaysia or a global eSIM valid for up to a year if you want one eSIM to work practically worldwide.

My Malaysia eSIM buying guide analyzes various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Here is a quick introduction to them:

  • Airalo: Sambungkan (Malaysia only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + call and text feature) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Malaysia & Asia (five countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Malaysia & Asia (11 countries) – these eSIMs have unlimited data – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Malaysia, APAC (up to 20 countries), SEA-Oceania (eight countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

For more information, such as the prices and data allowances, check out my Malaysia eSIM buying guide.

But let's continue with U Mobile for now.

Note that U Mobile offers VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G)) if your phone supports it and you have enabled it in the settings.

Oh, you can also use VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi).

Yes Malaysia

Yes Malaysia, just Yes and formerly known as Yes 4G, is one of the mobile operators in Malaysia.

It was the first 4G/LTE-only mobile operator in Malaysia, building its network from the ground up.

Yes never had a national roaming agreement with the other mobile operator, meaning you needed a 4G/LTE compatible device to use Yes.

Moreover, only select devices supporting 4G/LTE on select non-traditional frequencies (for Malaysian and Asian standards).

Luckily, Yes managed to get some spectrum on normal frequencies, but I still suggest checking the supported devices list to avoid surprises.

In May 2022, Yes launched 5G NR (through Digital Nasional Berhad), making it Malaysia's first 5G NR-supported mobile operator.

Yes uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: N/A – never had it
  • 3G: N/A – never had it
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 2300 MHz (Band 40) & 2600 MHz (Band 38)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28) & 3500 MHz (n78) – through Digital Nasional Berhad
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: No

This is what you will learn about Yes:

* Coverage
* How to Get a Yes SIM Card & SIM Card Price
* Topping Up Options & Methods + Balance Check
* Plans & Packages
* APN/Internet Settings

Coverage – Yes Malaysia

Yes has the best 4G/LTE availability in Malaysia.

This was also confirmed by Opensignal.

Below are Yes' coverage maps produced by Speedtest – on the left, Peninsular (West) Malaysia; on the right, East Malaysia:

You can also check out Yes' official coverage map here.

SIM Card Price – Yes Malaysia

You can get a Yes SIM card for 30 MYR with unlimited data (@ full speed on 5G NR and @ 7 Mbps on 4G/LTE), unlimited local minutes & unlimited on-net SMS for 30 days in Yes stores and from resellers, including grocery stores, kiosks & gas stations. Yes SIM cards are not sold at airports, including Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) and Penang International Airport (PEN).

Yes has no eSIMs – not even for postpaid customers.

You should consider getting a travel eSIM for Malaysia because they can sometimes be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Yes.

Especially if you get an Asia-wide eSIM or a global eSIM.

I discuss various eSIM options of eSIM providers for Malaysia in my Malaysia eSIM buying guide, which are:

  • Airalo: Sambungkan (Malaysia only), Asialink (14 countries in Asia) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + minutes and SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Malaysia & Asia (five countries) – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Malaysia & Asia (11 countries) – unlimited data eSIMs – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Malaysia, APAC (up to 20 countries), SEA-Oceania (eight countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

As I said, check out my Malaysia eSIM buying guide for more information, as I have to continue with Yes for now.
