Everyone uses their smartphones differently. Some used it for keeping in touch with voice calls, while others must stay connected with data 24/7. Even when it comes to data, your actual usage can differ greatly from others. There are people who can’t get enough of social updates and there are video junkies who can’t live without binge-watching their drama series on the go.
Your mobile habits can define the type of monster that’s lurking within you. Are you a movie buff? Or are you a social media addict? U Mobile has devised a simple quiz so you can find out. Take the quiz now!

Astro had enjoyed 20 years of exclusivity as the sole satellite Pay TV provider in Malaysia. That special privilege finally ended on 28 February 2017, opening up the opportunity for other players to start their own satellite based pay TV service.
With the rise of OTT (Over-The-Top) players such as Netflix and iflix, one company believes they have a chance in challenging Astro’s foothold in the pay TV business.
The 2nd phase of the MRT Line 1 is now open and this includes an underground section that goes through the heart of KL city. When Digi invited us for a 4G Underground MRT challenge earlier this week, we thought why not we test out 4 of our big telcos in Malaysia? So we did.
U Mobile has just unveiled its newly revamped flagship store located on the ground floor at Berjaya Times Square. It’s more spacious than before as their customer service centre is now moved to a new dedicated space on the first floor of the same building.
U Mobile will be performing scheduled system upgrades and maintenance exercise during the month of July and August. In preparation for this exercise, U Mobile would like to give its customers an early heads up on a potential interruption of its service.
U Mobile will be ending its networking sharing and alliance agreement with Maxis which they had signed back in 2011. This agreement allowed U Mobile users to roam on Maxis’ 3G and 2G network where U Mobile’s own 4G/3G coverage isn’t available. The termination will be done in phases over 18 months and it is expected to be completed by 27 December 2018.
It will take at least 3 years before 5G is ready for commercial service but U Mobile is now a step closer with its commercial roll out of 4.5G. This is the first in Malaysia and it’s made possible in collaboration with Huawei. With 4.5G, U Mobile promises twice the speed of 4G on supporting devices.

Malaysian telcos are getting very generous when it comes to mobile data and it’s now a norm to get 20GB to 60GB these days. However, if you take a closer look at the fine print, these postpaid plans often come with strings attached like separate data quota for weekday and weekend, and having to pay extra to combine your unutilised weekend data. Why should you let your telco dictate what you can and can’t do with your smartphone?
Although these plans have more than enough data for most people but deep down you’ll know you won’t be fully satisfied unless it is truly unlimited. Some telcos had introduced postpaid plans with “unlimited” offerings but they can be quite expensive.
U Mobile, the disruptive telco that’s known for incredible value for money has up the ante with a brand new unlimited plan. For those who want true unlimited data without costing a bomb, U Mobile wants to fulfil your needs with its new Unlimited HERO Postpaid P78.
U Mobile looks poised to launch something big tomorrow and it’s got something to do with data roaming. More specifically, U Mobile will introduce Roam-Onz, an upcoming addition to the company’s already established line of -Onz features.
Here’s what we know.
