Following TM’s acquisition 2 years ago, P1 is now revamped to webe. Webe is not just Malaysia’s latest telco but it also marks TM’s re-entry in offering the mobile services. To differenciate themselves, webe is positioning themselves as a community powered by 4G.

According to its CEO CC Puan, webe isn’t just a refresh but a leap forward in the telco space. To get things started, they have introduced webe community. It is somewhat similar to Kickstarter except that you won’t need to fork out a single sen. At the moment, they have 7 projects on board which includes a local zombie movie that will be distributed online for free.

All these projects are already funded and they just require the community’s support to get it moving. To pledge your support for a project, all webe community members can support using webits which are given for free. All new signups get 50 webits for free and you can earn more webits by sharing the project on your social networks. You can try it out yourself using the official webe app that’s available on iOS and Android.

Webe hasn’t shared any details on its plans and the launch today is simply to reveal the brand’s ambition. Expect them to reveal their consumer offering later sometime in the 2nd half of this year. Based on leaks we’ve seen earlier, expect them to offer competitive postpaid plans below RM100 with device bundles and unlimited data.

TM is a load of crap!!!

Webe really had a bad start. They already knew via social media that the public was expecting some sort of new awesome data plan and made no attempt to correct such hype.

VERY BAD START for a company claiming to recreate the digital space. It would appear that it is a non-started and we just have to stick to current incumbents. We can still depend on smaller players to shake things up.

    they are playing the hype game … and then launch with a BANG. … and then go die..

Vendettaaa

Even if you webe give unlimited data capped at 5Mbps, still i foresee a lot of people will subscribe…

You are god damm right!

    they're leverage on Celcom networks in case their own WEBE networks is not at sight………so i am confident it is quite a stable ones with Celcom around.

lakibiniserupa

Idiots running TM. Wasting tax payers money.

Adli

Got excited for nothing.damn you TM people!

Msia Boleh

Sigh. Looks like all the excitement for nothing. This will still take time to roll out. Who gives a damn about all these lame community projects. Seriously. Just like no one cares about TM's Blue Hyppo community when it came out many years ago. All just smoke and mirrors and I predict this kumbaya project will die off in no time.

Full 3G but no data….adoii
