About 150,000 residents on the East Coast of Sabah, Malaysia, will enjoy a full suite of communications services with the opening of a new centre in Sandakan, said Malaysian telecommunications provider Maxis.
Maxis head of Sabah region Anthony Ho said the services at the new Maxis centre in Sandakan included paying bills over the counter or via 24-hour payment kiosks, registering for new services, subscribing to value-added services as well as experiencing the latest smartphones and tablets.
"Maxis has enhanced its distribution channel in Sabah to reach out to customers in Sandakan as well as the surrounding towns of Beluran and Telupid," said Ho. "The new Maxis Centre, which is located at Prima Square in Sandakan, is the first store built to serve customers in the East Coast of Sabah. With the addition of this new store, Maxis continues to expand its presence in Sabah, adding on to its two existing Maxis Centres in Kota Kinabalu, as well as five Maxis Exclusive Partners (MEPs) and more than 1,200 Hotlink dealers across Sabah."
"Customers in Sabah can also enjoy an exclusive prepaid broadband offer, which allows customers to surf the Internet instantly by just purchasing the Prepaid Internet Starter Kit at a special price of RM99 [US$32.36] [retailing nationwide at the regular retail price of RM138 (US$45)]. The starter kit comes with a Maxis modem and a broadband data SIM card preloaded with 700 MB of data and 30-day access," he said.
Ho said that in addition to opening the new outlet in Sandakan, Maxis has also invested in several customer service centre facelifts to enhance the overall customer service experience in Sabah. "Maxis has renovated the Maxis Centre in Warisan Square, Kota Kinabalu to allow the delivery of more efficient services, leading to less waiting time, and Maxis' new devices to be better shown. Maxis has focused its initial efforts on Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan, two key towns in Sabah, as they have the highest population figures within the state."
