The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ have finally landed in Malaysia. They retail at RM2,699 and RM3,099 respectively, but if you do not wish to pay full price for the devices, you can also sign up for a contract with one of our local telcos, and enjoy the new phablets at a subsidised price. All four major telcos – Maxis, Celcom, Digi and U Mobile, are offering these latest phablets, but how do their plans stack up against one another?
The consumer launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ will be happening tomorrow, but it looks like U Mobile is ready with its bundle. The telco has unveiled its Galaxy Note 5 bundle, offering the device from as low as RM1,299 when you sign up for a contract with its postpaid plans.
Now that Maxis has finally revamped its MaxisONE postpaid plans to offer more data than before while maintaining the same unlimited calls and SMS to all networks, how does it compare to the rest of the postpaid plans in the market?
Here’s an updated list of postpaid plans offered in Malaysia by the four major telcos in the country – Maxis, Celcom, Digi and U Mobile.
[Update: 06/08/2015] Still using an old U Mobile prepaid plan? You can now switch to Power Prepaid and get 1GB of internet free each month, for life.
U Mobile’s big event is scheduled for tomorrow, 23 July 2015, but it looks like the promotional materials for the “industry-changing proposition” have already been released. U Mobile will be introducing a new prepaid pack that comes with free basic internet, free high-speed internet every month, free call minutes, and more.
U Mobile’s “Industry-Changing” launch will be happening tomorrow. The telco promises to give consumers “great value in the form of greater voice and mobile data allocations, as well as a string of value-added services”.
We already know that it involves giving “free Internet for life” with their on-going #FreeInternetForLife campaign, but nobody’s sure what exactly will be announced tomorrow. What could it be?
