Malaysia SIM Card Reviews (Malaysian)

Malaysia has a healthy telecom market with many players.

And like many countries in Southeast Asia, SIM cards and mobile data are inexpensive in Malaysia.

There are ten SIM cards you can choose from, Maxis (Hotlink), Digi Malaysia, Celcom Malaysia, U Mobile & Yes (4G), which you can buy in stores.

And a few more Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs).

A handful of those is only available online, which you may not have time to wait for when visiting this wonderful country.

Hence I only cover ten in my Malaysia SIM card buying guide.

Anyway, I tried and reviewed most of the easily accessible Malaysian SIM cards back in 2020.

The thing is… I wrote those reviews a few months after starting Phone Travel Wiz.

And they are bad 💀.

Currently, I am in Australia (writing this in June 2022) and will stay here until at least April 2023.

I may visit Malaysia before 2023.

However, I visited 15 European countries in the first quarter of 2022, and I tested around 60 SIM cards there.

And I want to go through them before adding more reviews to my plate 🥲.

For up-to-date information about Malaysian SIM cards, read my Malaysia SIM card buying guide.

But if you really want to know what I thought of the mobile operators back then, you can read them here: Hotlink by Maxis, Digi Malaysia, Celcom Malaysia, U Mobile & Yes (4G).

Worry not; the updated reviews will be much better once I get to them 😉.
