Celcom recently introduced a new postpaid plan, Celcom MEGA, which comes with two passes - Unlimited Internet Pass and Lightning Pass

A first-of-its-kind postpaid plan in Malaysia, Celcom MEGA doesn't lock you into a two-year contract, but gives you the flexibility to try out different Internet Passes every month.

Here's how it works:

  1. You start off with the Celcom MEGA postpaid plan at RM80.
  2. You can customise your plan by either adding an Unlimited Internet Pass or Lightning Pass.
  3. At the end of your billing cycle, you can keep your current Pass or switch to a different one.
The main difference between both of these is that Unlimited Internet Pass gives you endless data for entertainment, while Lightning Pass gives you high-speed Internet plus cool features like free roaming and e-wallet cashback for unused data.

With the launch of the MEGA Postpaid Plan, Celcom asked us to test the speed for both of their Internet passes

When we used Celcom MEGA with the Unlimited M Internet Pass:

1. We streamed the whole first season of The Big Bang Theory

Yup, we literally watched 17 episodes of The Big Bang Theory in office for "work purposes." Besides an occasional pause in between episodes, we didn't have to wait for any buffering.

2. We uploaded a 100MB video on Facebook in under a minute

Usually, it takes a while to upload videos on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. However, Celcom's unlimited social media data allowed us to post up our content with zero hassle.

3. We watched the NBA All-Star Game highlights on YouTube in HD

Playing YouTube in HD 1080p wasn't a problem either. It makes sooo much difference when you get to watch sports in all of its glorious detail.

4. We managed to update 11 of our apps in just five minutes

After not updating most of our apps for a long time, we just clicked "update all" and left the phone to go to work. The great thing about unlimited Internet is that you won't have to worry about running out, so you could potentially leave all your apps to auto-update.

5. We spent an hour just scrolling through TikTok

The most annoying thing is when things don't load or take forever to show up when you're scrolling through social media. Thankfully, we didn't have to worry about that thanks to Celcom MEGA's unlimited social media.

Next, we tried using Celcom MEGA with the XL Lightning Pass:

1. We downloaded the whole This Is Taylor Swift playlist on Spotify in just 63 seconds

Since there were 59 songs in the This Is Taylor Swift playlist, this means we could almost download one Spotify song (typically 4MB) every second!

2. We played PUBG, Mobile Legends, and Clash of Clans without any lag

With Celcom's high-speed Internet, we didn't have to worry about lag when playing online games. For instance, when we were playing PUBG, we recorded an average ping of 60ms, which felt super smooth.

3. We sent 174MB of files via WeTransfer in 25 seconds

That's almost 7Mbps upload speed! :D

4. We downloaded Kingsman: The Secret Service in just 73 seconds

Time to stock up your Netflix account with all the movies and TV shows you need to catch up on!

Ultimately, we were super impressed with the Celcom MEGA postpaid plan. If you're thinking about which Internet Pass you should go for, here's what you should know:
