U Mobile has revamped their U Broadband Plans which now offers 4 different options. The 4 plans are MB6, MB40, MB68, MB128. For those who are needing internet per day usage, the MB6 which is available only for prepaid offers 500MB of quota for only RM6/day. This is actually similar to its previous UB6.
The next 2 plans – MB40 and MB68 are also similar to its previous postpaid broadband offerings which offers 2GB for RM40 and 5GB for RM68 monthly. For those who wants peace of mind, U Mobile no longer charges Pay As you Use rates if you exceed your given quota. Previously excess usage is charged at 5 sen per MB. Of course fair usage applies after exceeding quota which your speeds will be lowered down.
While this is a good move for budget conscious users, MB68 5GB might be insufficient for the hard core users of today. To cater for heavy users especially on MiFis, they have introduced MB128 which offers 15GB of quota for RM128. If you do the math, that’s only RM8.55 per GB.
U Mobile bundles USB modems of both HSPA and HSPA+ variety and MiFi modems with their plans. If you subscribe to MB68 and above, there’s also a rebate of RM20 x 5 months which effectively waives your RM100 activation fee that is required during registration.
If you’re interested, there’s a group purchase offer at JackCow where they are offering the 6 months MB68 + USB Bundle plan for RM254 instead of RM508. That’s 50% discount of the actual value.

You’ve read the live blogs last night, you’ve read our opinion piece on the iOS 5, now watch the keynote in full and relive the moment as Steve Jobs and his team unveil the OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud for the first time. Click the link below to stream the full-length keynote, all 117 minutes of it.
We’re still still bummed that there’s no mention of a new iPhone though.
The WWDC 2011 is over and done with, and while we are hoping that Steve Jobs’ “one more thing” would be a new iPhone — which didn’t happen — his keynote revealed some pretty interesting stuff coming from Apple.
The iOS has been generally unchanged since it was first launched and at the same time Android has been evolving in such a short time span with both smart phone and tablet specific versions. So what’s new with iOS 5? If they are not releasing a brand new iPhone, there better be new features to make their devices appealing for today’s users. The Android platform has been moving in a rapid pace thanks to new hardware as well as custom software innovations by respective manufacturers. Read on as we run through the new key features.
Update: Tan Sri Tony Fernandes says Tune Talk’s new BlackBerry rates are the cheapest in the country. So far, he is correct. Now everyone can BBM? 😛
Last month Tune Talk had introduced its BlackBerry service with daily and monthly subscription service, giving a cheaper alternative for BIS subscription.
Now they have revised their BIS rates lower at RM0.98 per day or RM28 for monthly subscription. This is a big slash from its previous RM1.50/day and RM40/month rate. If you’re looking for no frills BBM usage only, it costs an affordable RM0.38 a day or RM11 per month.
The service runs on daily activation and you just need to activate once to get out started. If you wish to stop, just deactivate by sms. All activation and deactivation costs 10sen. According to the T&Cs, the maximum download speed is 400kbps which is sufficient for normal usage but heavy users would be left wanting more.
