For internet users that do not require blazing internet speeds and only want to do light browsing and emailing, Maxis is the only broadband service provider that still offers 10MBps speeds while the rest of the competitors has moved ahead and only offer higher speeds. The best selling point for Maxis Broadband packages is that they come with the same download and upload speed, a feature that is hardly seen from other broadband service providers.
