Celcom had recently given its postpaid plans a massive upgrade, offering up to 60GB data for RM150/month. Now they are turning its attention to FIRST Blue postpaid users and they are finally giving it the upgrade it deserves.

Offered at RM45/month, Celcom FIRST Blue originally came with 4GB of data (2GB all-day + 2GB weekend), 50 minutes of calls and 50 SMS per month. If you’re an existing subscriber, you should be getting an SMS above informing that your plan will be upgraded to 10GB of data (5GB all-day + 5GB weekend). The allocation of 50 minutes of calls and 50 SMS per month remains unchanged.

At time of posting, this new upgrade isn’t reflected yet on Celcom’s website. They could be in the process of upgrading all existing customers before offering it for new sign ups. From what we heard, this is available first for subscribers that signed up before 28 October 2016.

With this 10GB for RM45/month offering, Celcom is trying to match Digi’s new postpaid 50 plan which also offers 10GB of data (5GB all day + 5GB 4G weekend) plus 100 minutes of calls for RM50/month. For U Mobile, their HERO Postpaid P50 offers 5GB of all-day data + 5GB of Video-ONZ and 50 minutes of calls for the same price. Meanwhile, on Maxis, existing SurfMore 50 (RM50/month) customers were recently upgraded from 3GB to 5GB of data and it now comes with 2GB of TVNow video stremaing.
