When Gobind Singh Deo took over as the Minister of Communications and Multimedia, he vowed to increase our broadband speeds while reducing subscription cost by half. In the past few months, we saw fibre broadband subscription rates getting slashed to an all time low. You can now get a fibre broadband plan from as low as RM79/month and 1Gbps can be enjoyed for as little as RM199/month which is a dream come true for most Malaysians.
As I’ve mentioned previously, cheap broadband isn’t going to solve our biggest problem. Fibre connections are limited to selected urban areas and this leaves many Malaysians stuck with slower and more expensive connections.
OpenSignal has just published a new State of Mobile Report for Malaysia and this time they are giving a clearer look at 5 big cities in Peninsular Malaysia. In the last report that was published in April this year, Maxis took first place in download speeds across both 4G and 3G. With the latest report, Maxis continues to lead while Celcom has also shown improvement when it comes to speed and 4G availability.

After a number of “last calls”, webe has finally closed its postpaid plan for new registrations. If you we’re planning to get webe’s never-ending data, calls and SMS plan, the last day to signup was 12 January 2018.
Webe is one of the youngest mobile networks in Malaysia that’s backed by TM. It was first launched in April 2016 with full commercial services running in September 2016. Now it appears that its unlimited RM79/month postpaid plan might come to an end by 12 January 2018, or is it?
Mobile data on smartphones are crucial these days and telcos around the world are offering more data to keep up with rising demand. Over the years, the cost of data has come down significantly while telcos have continued with their expansion of their 4G coverage.
So which telco has the best network in the country? If you’re curious, OpenSignal has published its latest findings in its State of Mobile Networks: Malaysia report that’s dated October 2017.

Webe is one of Malaysia’s youngest telco and they came in with a promise to reimagine the mobile space. After having two LTE plans and appointed its third CEO in just two years, the webe name has finally come to an end.
Now you can get much clearer calls on webe, Digi and Yes 4G with the honor 8 Pro.
Huzzah! TM has announced a partnership with what is perhaps the most popular internet streaming service in the world: Netflix.
When webe was first introduced, its mobile postpaid plan at RM79/month gives you almost unlimited everything except for wifi tethering. A few months ago, they had offered a few months of 1GB of free hotspot data and obviously, that isn’t enough for most power users.
Probably after much persuasion by its potential subscribers, the TM mobile brand is now offering free 10GB of LTE hotspot data to all webe mobile subscribers.
This morning it appears that Celcom customers were facing network issues nationwide. This not only affects Celcom Postpaid and Xpax customers but also other MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) and Domestic Roaming partners that utilise their network nationwide.
