The picture below is something I have to deal at home – happily browsing the internet on my computer and the 3 kitteh had to come and demand my attention, which I usually duly give them.

When you already have to fight with such creatures to go online, it is just natural to want to have a good internet browsing experience when there isn’t anything between the keyboard and LCD monitor – which is where Celcom Broadband comes in handy.

The best network coverage also ensures that I get the same experience with good download speeds when I am on the go or happen to be with my laptop at other locations without interference of these animals.

Imagine this scenario in the photo below.

We were at Khao Lak in Thailand, the evening before leaving for Liveaboard diving trip at the Similan Islands, and San San brought her laptop cos she had to work, so poor old Rich, her husband, had to chill with her at the resort’s cafe instead of roaming the town or chilling at the beach. All because that’s the only place with wifi access.

Then look at another scenario.

This is now Haze, working at home on her computer with Cendawan the kitteh lurking on the shelve on top. Since she works mainly from home, internet connection is pretty important. Our land line sometimes does go a bit wonky, if she does not have a backup, usually a drive to somewhere with wifi is needed. The hassle!

Both this scenarios, and the third one involving someone who does not have a wireless internet plan (such as a traveler or a relatively low usage person who want to access the internet occasionally) can be solved with Instanet!

Instanet is the new prepaid broadband service that’s powered by Celcom, and of course, true to its name, you can get it fast, and more importantly, the pricing is very reasonable too!

celcom instanet prepaid pack

To start, get the Instanet prepaid pack at RM 12.50 with a SIM card (for smart phone, tablet, or even laptop with SIM slot) or RM 108 for a USB modem (for laptops & desktops). The prepaid packs already comes with RM 10 credit.

As I mentioned earlier, the rates are very reasonable too:

Celcom Instanet rates

If I am a traveler from another country coming to Malaysia, I’d kill for only RM 18 for a week’s internet access! The 1GB volume will be more than enough for email, facebook, twitter, and web browsing for sure.

Until July 15, the Instanet Monthly is having a promotion at only RM 30 per month too.
