Celcom Revised & Increase Prepaid SMS Rate


If you are Celcom prepaid subscribers, you should have know current Celcom prepaid plan is XPAX24. Although the current one is XPAX24, but if you’re X2 or Xpax (15pax) subscribers, you’re allowed to maintain your current plan until further notice or whenever you want to convert to XPAX24.
