A new report on the state of LTE connections across the globe has been released by OpenSignal; and it shows that Malaysia is not doing all that badly compared to developed countries. The usual suspects still top the charts in terms of LTE speeds and coverage, but the rest of the world is catching up.
Earlier this week, U Mobile has announced that it has partnered together with AEON Credit Service (yes, that AEON) to provide financing for iPhone purchases under its MicroCredit scheme. Previously, U MicroCredit’s was operated Berjaya Credit which made this announcement rather interesting.
In addition to the announcement of the FATTNET from Xpax prepaid plan, Celcom also introduced a new smartphone leasing plan called NewPhone. Only the second such plan offered by a local telco, NewPhone allows users to upgrade to a new smartphone every year by paying a fixed monthly fee.
Well, that was unexpected. In a swift response to recent telco developments, Celcom has unleashed its best postpaid plan ever: the First Gold. Offering a staggering 10GB of data plus unlimited calls and texts to all networks for just RM80 a month, this plan is one of the best we’ve seen yet from any telco.
Originally announced by Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Razak under the revised Budget 2016 last week, the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has finally shed some light on the upcoming spectrum reallocation that will be done through bidding process. It apparently will be affecting spectrum in the 900MHz and 1,800MHz bands as well as involving four major telcos.
Both supplementary lines are also unique in the fact that they both allow supplementary lines to enjoy free unlimited calls to all networks, a perk the MaxisONE and Hero postpaid plans offer. But which supplementary line offers better value for both the principal and supplementary lines?
In a surprising move, Digi has unveiled a new postpaid plan that looks to be one of the best value-for-money plans available today. The SmartPlan 75, revealed late last night via its official website, offers 7GB of mobile Internet, unlimited calls, and plenty of value added bonuses for just RM75.
In addition to its domestic roaming deal with TM for the upcoming P1 mobile services, Celcom has also unveiled its plan to offer its own fixed broadband services. This service will be utilizing TM’s High Speed Broadband infrastructure – similar in nature as per Maxis Fibre.
While some users might not be aware of this, TM is currently working to turn P1 into a mobile player. By that, we mean as a full fledged telco service instead of just being ISP. Today, the company today has taken one step closer to its mobile ambition by signing domestic roaming partnership with Celcom.
These days, most telcos offer prepaid plans with special promotions that are only valid for a certain period of time. True to its disruptive approach, U Mobile introduced the Power Prepaid Plan in the middle of last year – and so far has proven to be unmatched in delivering value for subscribers.
U Mobile’s POWER prepaid plan is the company’s latest offering for prepaid users. The SIM starter pack goes for a mere RM8.50 and it comes with a tonne of freebies that last forever. Yes, forever. Plus, it is the only prepaid plan in Malaysia that offers free high-speed Internet every month, also forever.
