They have also since updated their plans with more Broadband options for both personal and business usage.

Maxis ONEBusiness Fibre – Fixed IP

Plan Price per month Maximum Download Speed
Maxis Business Fibre with Fixed IP 30Mbps RM299 30Mbps
Maxis Business Fibre with Fixed IP 100Mbps RM339 100Mbps

Every computer and mobile device connected to the internet gets an IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). Having a dynamic IP address means each time your computer or router is rebooted, the ISP re-assigns an IP address to your device.

For businesses with domain names and servers linked to their IP address, this means your server and emails could become unreachable. Fixed IP, then, is designed so that you get linked to one static IP address. This also helps when VPNs are used internally for business resources.

In short, if your business wants to host your own website and servers, access PC from other places, and make stable VoIP calls like Skype and Facetime, fixed IP is a better bet. Naturally, Maxis Business Fibre does come with a higher cost. With the same broadband width, an additional RM200 is being added for this service.

  • Best for: online businesses with cross-border services, requiring internet-intensive usage, servers, and constant VoIP calls.
