An anonymous tipster has just delivered us a set of mysterious images of what seems to be a SIM card starter pack by a brand called webe. These images were also accompanied by a rather intriguing description that stated: “Malaysia’s first Digital Solutions Provider,”. Well, that sounds like a telco description to us but…who is webe?
Truth be told, webe is not exactly a new name in the industry as a local “crowdbacking” platform called webe community made its debut last year. Interestingly, we realized that not only that it has the same name as the upcoming telco but it also has the same logo.
A quick whois check on webe community’s URL has showed that the domain is actually owned by Packet One Networks (P1). Furthermore, there is also a clock on the website that is counting down to 13 April which apparently is the day that the platform will reveal its future projects as well as the people behind the webe community itself. It is also the day that P1 is expected to announce its transition into a mobile telco after securing cellular capability from Celcom earlier this year.
Given their relationship and the picture that we received earlier today, we don’t think it just a mere coincidence that P1 and webe community has chosen 13 April as the date for their big announcement. Of course, nothing is official at the moment until it is confirmed by related parties.
Nevertheless, we’ll continue to be on the look out for more info related to the new telco up leading to the webe community and P1’s big announcement day on 13 April.
