U Mobile will also be offering the Galaxy S7 edge, creating a four-way competition among our Malaysian telcos. There won’t be any pre-orders and U Mobile will start selling the device beginning 18 March 2016. If you’re among the first 100 customers to sign up, you’ll also get a Gear VR headset worth RM459.
Towards the end of 2015, our Malaysian telcos have been fighting over who has the widest 4G coverage. If you think about it, it is like having a bunch of guys boasting about their own manhood. Everyone claims to have the longest but nobody can actually verify it.
According to OpenSignal’s latest data updated on 11 March 2016, Digi currently has the widest coverage in Malaysia. So looks like it’s a win for team yellow as it claims to currently cover 72% population with 4G LTE.
But is this really true?
U Mobile’s best postpaid plan just got a whole lot better. The P70 Hero Postpaid plan introduced late last year had sparked an intense price war by offering unlimited calls and 7GB of data for only RM70/month. With the competition catching up, they have up the ante by boosting their data offering to a whopping 15GB of data. That’s 8GB more and yet they have maintained the same subscription fee.
Malaysians are really getting spoilt for choice as the major telcos have gotten into a postpaid price war by delivering more data for less. After U Mobile introduced its Hero Postpaid plan that offered 7GB of data and unlimited calls to all networks for RM70/month, the competition is seriously heating up.
Digi has thrown the gauntlet by introducing its SmartPlan 75 that comes with similar offering at RM75/month for a limited time only. Just earlier this week, Celcom has responded by revamping its FIRST Gold Postpaid plan with 10GB of data for only RM80/month.
So which is the best “Pau ka liau” (do everything) plan in town? Read on to find out.

Last year, U Mobile had introduced its Hero Postpaid plan that offers a generous 7GB of data and unlimited free calls for only RM70/month. Now they have enhanced its offering further with its new Hero Plus that’s designed to give you more data for you and your loved ones. For RM120/month, you get a total of 10GB of internet and unlimited free calls on 2 separate lines.
U Mobile has just refreshed its Power Prepaid, giving you even more free internet each month. When it was first introduced, it offered the most free high-speed internet at 1GB as long as you top up a minimum of RM10 each month.
With the growing demand for internet on the go, Power Prepaid now comes with a whopping 3GB of Free Data. You should be impressed by now but wait until you see the full picture.
There’s a saying, the best things in life are free. If you love to travel, you’ll be happy to know that U Mobile’s free internet roaming offer has been extended until 31st March 2016. This allows you to stay in touch and post a couple of social updates during your travels for free.
U Mobile wants you to start 2016 with a bang especially if you’re a prepaid customer. Following its Free 1GB promo last month, they are continuing its 1GB giveaway to all Prepaid UMI users for the month of January 2016.
Beginning 1st January 2016, all prepaid reloads in Malaysia will be sold without the extra 6% charge. This is in line with the directive to exempt prepaid reloads from GST. It doesn’t mean that prepaid is free from GST, as it will be charged upon usage, instead of being paid upfront.
Fortunately, the government will be offering GST rebates as announced during Budget 2016. To address concerns, MCMC has published the full details ahead of its implementation on new year’s day
