I'd personally go for Digi... from my past experience with both, connectivity-wise.

This looks like just the data plan, and you need to have a prepaid account/line in order to subscribe to a data plan.

So yes, you'll have to buy a SIM pack first.

I was there a few days ago to buy tuneTalk Simcard when I also see they have Digi Simcard, hence enquired the price for it.

I got my hotlink Long ago and yes required passport or some form of verification

If you want to try out Hotlink later, can check out the Maxis shop in City Square. They're selling Hotlink packs at cost RM10 before, though not sure about now. Or there are other dealers in JB Sentral, 1 in JBCC, can choose the one with a package you're comfortable with.

Link: Maxis Hotlink RED Plan is their latest.

On the registration of prepaid cards, it's a regulation set by their telecom authorities Malaysian Communications & Multimedia Commission. They normally ask for passport from foreigners.

Grace Period for XPAX is generally 50 days.

The validity is RM1 for 1 day, so if you want to use the card for say, a continuous 5-day period, then you'll have to top up at least RM5.

Edit: (to show more info)
Credit Expiry/Validity

Customersí prepaid credit or airtime balance can only be used when their Xpax accounts are active. To keep the Xpax account active, Customers are required to perform a credit reload. Any prepaid credit or balance in the Xpax account cannot be exchanged or redeemed for cash.

The preloaded airtime and validity period for each starter pack is as follows:
Starter Pack RRP Preloaded Airtime Validity Period
RM 10 RM6.60 5 days
RM 5 RM3.30

Any additional reload values shall follow the validity period as stated in the Xpax Reload Specific Terms and Conditions below.

Upon expiry of the validity period, the Customers will have fifty (50) days to perform a reload, failing which their mobile number or account will be automatically terminated without any further notice.

These dealers need to pay rental, among other things...

If you've access to a Maxis Center, you won't be charged for any extras. The only ones in a shopping mall that I've come across so far, are in Batu Pahat Mall, and Melaka's Mahkota Parade.

Thank you so much Habrosus!
In this case I just top up Rm3 every 45 days via the celcom life app.
