Following Maxis’ move to upgrade their MaxisONE and SurfMore 50 plans with more quota, the competition continues to shake things up. Celcom has announced an even higher postpaid plan with larger quota while Digi has introduced a new plan (sort of) with more data for the weekends. Not to be left out, U Mobile has also extended its P70 Hero postpaid’s extra 8GB promo until the end of 2016.
So how do the new plans stack up? Read on for our full comparison.

When it comes to GB/ringgit for postpaid plans, U Mobile’s Hero Postpaid P70 plan is hard to beat. It got even better when the orange telco outed a promo which bumped the original 7GB quota to a whopping 15GB of monthly quota for only RM70/month.
Well, things are rosier than ever now as U Mobile has extended the duration of the bonus data promo to the end of this year.
Following the launch of the MaxisONE World plan, U Mobile has come up with their very own solution that allows you to bring your local postpaid data plan with you on your travels overseas and it’s a doozy.
UPDATE: Celcom and Digi have introduced new plans with more data. Check out the latest postpaid comparison here.
Maxis has finally responded to the recent postpaid price war by upgrading all MaxisONE plans with up to 9GB of extra data. These new upgraded plans will be rolled out to all new and existing subscribers by the end of this month. While waiting for that to kick in, Maxis is giving 3GB extra data next week to all MaxisONE plan customers.
So how does Maxis’ postpaid offering compare against the rest? It’s time for another round of postpaid comparison.
Need to stay connected while travelling overseas? U Mobile is making data roaming more affordable by offering unlimited usage from as low as RM10/day. This RM10/day offer is applicable at 12 selected countries which includes Australia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
For a long time now, the 4G operator scene in Malaysia has been dominated by four companies — Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile. However, at the end of last year, we reported that there would be a new player entering the scene in 2016 and it seems this could be it.
The iPhone SE is coming to Malaysia very soon and U Mobile wants to be your telco of choice when it arrives. The orange telco has started its registration of interest and you can drop your details for more info when it is available.
Postpaid plans in Malaysia are getting cheaper with competitive telcos dishing out more data for your money. Apart from cost, another crucial factor to consider is network quality. What’s the point of getting loads of data on the cheap if you can’t use it when you needed it the most?
4G LTE was introduced in Malaysia back in 2013 and currently we have 4 major LTE telcos – Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile.

The findings were derived from a data sample size of close to 40 million that were contributed by 21,109 OpenSignal app users in Malaysia between 1 December 2015 to 29 February 2016.
