Following TM’s acquisition 2 years ago, P1 is now revamped to webe. Webe is not just Malaysia’s latest telco but it also marks TM’s re-entry in offering the mobile services. To differenciate themselves, webe is positioning themselves as a community powered by 4G.

According to its CEO CC Puan, webe isn’t just a refresh but a leap forward in the telco space. To get things started, they have introduced webe community. It is somewhat similar to Kickstarter except that you won’t need to fork out a single sen. At the moment, they have 7 projects on board which includes a local zombie movie that will be distributed online for free.

All these projects are already funded and they just require the community’s support to get it moving. To pledge your support for a project, all webe community members can support using webits which are given for free. All new signups get 50 webits for free and you can earn more webits by sharing the project on your social networks. You can try it out yourself using the official webe app that’s available on iOS and Android.

Webe hasn’t shared any details on its plans and the launch today is simply to reveal the brand’s ambition. Expect them to reveal their consumer offering later sometime in the 2nd half of this year. Based on leaks we’ve seen earlier, expect them to offer competitive postpaid plans below RM100 with device bundles and unlimited data.
