If you know in advance the location you are visiting, you can check the coverage map to ensure that the service provider cover that area well.
Such coverage map can only be used as a reference, unless you're not really bothered about the quality of network connection you get.

So stick to your Tron card if it fits your kind of usage.

Download their RED app, you can check from there. Most likely 2 months later it will be in passive period, do a top up will make it alive.


How the speed connection there ? and where are you now ?
Thanks for all the answers. I only stayed around JB sentral area. The connection is pretty good. LTE all the way.

The Hotlink fast, 2GB/RM30. 1GB for 3G the other 1GB Is for 4G. What if I don't have a 4G phone can I still use the other 1GB supposedly for 4G phones?

Extracted from their FAQ:

How can I enjoy 4G/LTE quota on FAST Internet Passes?

i.Ensure that you are using a 4G LTE enabled device.
ii.Make sure you have a 4G LTE enabled SIM (visit your nearest Maxis Centre to upgrade your SIM).
iii.Turn on 4G or LTE on your mobile device.
iv.Ensure that you are within 4G LTE coverage area.



From above statement, you may not able to enjoy the 4G/LTE quota .

Oh...Any reliable 3G/4G dual-SIM phone to recommend ?
Try to get dual-SIM phone that has both slots 4G-capable, then you can capture 4G speeds without having to swap the SIM cards.

Samsung Duo sim phone from JB KSL Samsung Center
Good to double-check before going across each time you think of dual-SIM phones. Samsung SG has started bringing in more dual-SIM models lately, so prices can be more competitive from certain local sources.

Examples: A5 RM1599, A7 RM1899.

So far never use any android phones...

HTC phones not bad.
I got the HTC at that time coz it's the only 5-inch model that's 4G-capable on both slots. Still using it all this while.

I will highly recommend redmi note 2 @ $229 - http://www.mi.com/sg/note2/

This will be a decent main phone as well.

If you just looking for a dual 4g sim to hotspot, redmi 2 @ $149 will be good enough

If you're using an iPhone, please don't try to push the cheaper Android phones the same way then complain about it lagging later.

Had 2 friends buying those entry-level models and both complained about "not enough RAM" after a while, 1 with iPhone and the other ... not exactly "smart" himself. The former realized earlier after watching his colleagues with Android phones, but the former has already got his A5 2016 with his mostly-play-games usage.

Similar to "which MY prepaid SIM card to buy?", "which dual-SIM phone" also depends on your usage pattern (and expectations) when you're over there.

Edit: One more thing is to be careful with those "optional dual-SIM" models. These are models that you've to choose between using a 2nd SIM card or an external memory card, in Slot 2. While in MY, I've my SG number and a Hotlink in last year's A7, and I use this for whatever I can't do with my HTC, either due to memory/RAM or Celcom and/or Digi network. Now you know why I carry 2 phones - coz I like instant connectivity.

(Last year's A7 is one "optional dual-SIM" model, but it allows me to quickly surf the web most times when the HTC can't, while the latter has an external memory card to support any access doc/photo-saving needs. )
