[Update] It’s official! More details after the break.
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?
While several telco plan promotions may be over – Celcom is no longer offering its First Basic 38 plan and Digi’s RM36 for its SmartPlan 50 ended just last week, the whole telco war is far from ending. U Mobile just launched a #FreeInternetForLife campaign, which will most likely be launched in the “industry-changing” event that will be happening this Thursday, 23 July 2015. The telco is also giving away 3 iPhone 6 for those who Tweet about the campaign.
We have just received an invite from U Mobile for its new product offering this coming Thursday on 23rd July. Apparently, the telco company will unveil a “new proposition that is so powerful, it resets the industry benchmark for one particular product segment.” Based on that statement alone, U Mobile seems pretty confident about its new offering.
Now that U Mobile has finally made its move in the telco price war, how does it compare to the other affordable postpaid plans offered by other telcos – Celcom First Basic 38 that offers 3GB of data for RM38/month, and Digi’s SmartPlan 50 promotion that offers 3GB of data for RM36/month?
Postpaid plans in Malaysia have just gotten more affordable than ever. U Mobile recently revised its postpaid plans, offering 3GB of data for only RM28 a month – it even comes with free calls and SMS. For those who need more, its P50 and P70 postpaid plans now come with even more data.
It shouldn’t happen, and yet news of consumers racking up eye-wateringly high bills due to data roaming charges keep cropping up. With the world becoming ever smaller and ever so connected, it is becoming increasingly important and unavoidable to stay connected – even when you’re in other countries for work (or for holiday, for that matter). Want to make sure how to not experience a five-figure sum in your next telco bill? Better yet, want to know how you can even minimise the costs of data roaming? Read on!
