The challenger telco U Mobile has kicked off its new Vision 2 million campaign, with an ambitious goal of getting 2 million new subscribers on its network. Just recently, U Mobile has embarked on a massive network expansion plan where it will invest in building 2,000 new 4G LTE and 3G sites nationwide.
If it does achieve its goal of 2 million new subscribers by 31st December 2014, they will be making this coming New Year’s Day celebration extra special with Free on-network calls and Free Internet surfing on 1st January 2015. In addition, those that port in from other network to U Mobile Prepaid from 16th September onwards will get Free Internet for 1 year (250MB x 12 months), provided they top up RM30 each month.
For existing U Mobile subscribers, they are making it more rewarding for you and your friends to jump on board to their network. With every successful referral, both you and your friend will get RM3 free credit. That’s not all, you’ll also get 10% of their monthly top ups for the first 6 months.
Switching to U Mobile is rather easy as well. All you’ll need to do is to purchase a starter pack from any 7-Eleven and you can perform the MNP port-in online without the need of queuing up at a service centre. For more information, visit U Mobile’s Vision 2 Million page.
To achieve 2,000,000 new subscribers, U Mobile would need to get an average of 18,868 customers per day from now until 31st December. So far it looks like they are on track with their counter showing 17,500 for its first day.
If you traveling overseas, U Mobile has increased its list of unlimited internet roaming countries. Now you can surf without worries in selected countries in Europe and in New Zealand for a flat rate of RM36/day.
This is made possible with its partnership with VodaFone in Albania, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Romania, Turkey and United Kingdom. If you’re using less than 4MB, your usage will be charged at RM9 per MB.
From its FAQ, you won’t need to purchase any Data Pass and you can start surfing provided that you’ve selected the right telco network. You are advised to search for the network manually under settings before enabling Data Roaming on your phone. The daily unlimited internet roaming is calculated based on local time, from 12:00AM until 11:59PM.
In case you didn’t know, U Mobile also offers Free Internet Roaming in Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand. This is limited to 50MB which is decent enough for instant messaging and light social updates. If you use beyond 50MB, excess usage will be charged at RM30/day.

For those using U Mobile’s Prepaid plans, you can now make more voice calls at a cheaper rate thanks to its new Voice Plan add-on. Available with a choice of RM20 (V20) and RM30 (V30), the new voice plans are essentially bulk voice add-ons that are activated for 30 days validity. For its V20 add-on, you’ll get 100 minutes of onnet (U Mobile to U Mobile) and 100 minutes offnet (calls to other networks) for RM20. Meanwhile, its V30 option gives you more at 180 minutes onnet and 180 minutes offnet, which is a equivalent to 8.3 sen/minute assuming if you fully utilised both onnet and offnet quotas.
If you can’t finish your voice minutes within the validity period, U Mobile allows you to carry forward unused minutes but only if you renew your voice plans of the same value. The only catch is there’s a limit of 200 minutes for V20 and 300 minutes for V30 at any one time. Overall, this is an affordable add-on for those who wish to make a lot of phone calls on U Mobile. Its prepaid voice calls are normally charged at 20 sen/minute (10sen/30sec block).
To subscribe, you can dial *118*3*6*1# and select the appropriate package. Alternatively you can SMS “ON V20″ or “ON V30″ to 28118.
