Maxis expands 5G international roaming service to 29 countries

Maxis has announced that it has expanded its 5G international roaming services to 29 countries, enabling more of its traveling customers to enjoy high speed connectivity abroad.

In a statement, the telco said this follows the announcement in October 2021, when it announced it was the first telco in the country to provide customers with 5G international roaming services in Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.

Arjun Varma, head of Maxis Consumer said the company is pleased that its customers can enjoy the best 5G experience in even more countries now, which is timely with the expectation of an influx of travelers for the year-end holidays. 

“Together with our roaming partners, we are committed to providing the best connectivity experience wherever our customers are,” he added. 

“We also look forward to further expanding our services to more countries in the near future,” Varma said. 

According to Maxis, the 5G roaming service will be activated automatically on any 5G-enabled device and will be charged as per the existing 4G roaming packages. It also has continuous plans to further extend its 5G international roaming footprint to more countries by the end of 2022.

To subscribe, Maxis customers just need to access the Maxis app and click on Maxis Roaming in the services tab to subscribe to a preferred plan. 

Alternatively, customers can subscribe manually by dialing *100#, go to ‘International Roaming’, choose ‘Country’, and select one of the available passes.
