For those who can’t live without internet and refuse to pay too much for data, Tune Talk has some good news for its subscribers. They have just revamped its monthly data plans where you can get 5GB a month for RM68 or 3GB for RM52. Previously their biggest mobile data add-on was their 3GB plan that was priced at RM58/month.
To activate, just SMS “3GB” or “5GB” to 2222. Each SMS request would be charged at 10 sen. According to Tune Talk, users will be notified if 90% of their data plans have been used up and you can check manually by dialling *134#. Upon finishing up your data quota, there’s no speed throttling but you’ll be charged at their Pay per Use rate of 5 sen per MB. That’s equivalent to RM5 per 100MB or RM51.20/GB (1,024MB).
Prepaid users are often subjected to stingy quotas at expensive rates. The usual pay as you go rate doesn’t really cut it but luckily we are seeing telcos introducing weekly and monthly data plans lately to make mobile internet affordable for the prepaid users.
Now TuneTalk has something different which is affordable for light but consistent daily mobile internet users. Apart from its low 5sen/MB data rate, they are offering a daily 50MB for 88 sen. The service is activated by SMS by sending “50MB” to 7777. The plan is renewed automatically on a daily basis and you can stop the subscription by SMSing “STOP” to 7777.
While 50MB/day doesn’t seem that much, but on a monthly basis that’s 1.5GB over 30 days for RM26.40. That’s pretty good value only if you’re a consistent user that uses less than 50MB each day. Once you exceed the 50MB quota, you’ll be charged the usual 5sen/MB rate. So if you have a suddenly craving to download huge files or stream video in a single day, you might want to keep your usage in check as you’ll be paying excess charge upon exceeding 50MB. Your data usage can be checked by SMSing “STATUS” to 7777.
