It’s the time of the year again, MCMC recently announced that it has issued our local telcos a total of 23 compounds amounting to RM1.01 million. The compounds have been issued to key local players like Digi, Maxis, Celcom, U Mobile, Tune Talk and XOX for dropped call issues and improper registration for prepaid users.
If you’ve always been frustrated with existing postpaid plans from local telcos because you never use up the data or free calls that are bundled, here’s something exciting for you from Digi. The telco has just revised its postpaid plans so whether you need more data or need more calls/SMS, there’s a plan for you.
The new U Mobile iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus bundles does indeed look very promising. Its new iPlans offers the cheapest option in the market starting from RM40 a month, and comes with plenty of data, suitable for today’s users. But how do the new plans stack up against the big 3 telcos who have been offering the iPhone for many years now? Check out our price comparison after the break.

It is being tested with Norwegian teleco Telenor, who happen to own DiGi and have brought it to Malaysia.
