For mobile consumers, things are about to get even more sizzling as U Mobile has just unveiled its new Power Prepaid Plan. The new powerful plan joins Celcom’s super-hyped #MagicSIM, Digi’s new Smart Prepaid and Maxis’ #Hotlink offerings – to put an end to Pay As You Use (PAYU) mobile internet charges and bring free basic internet to users.
But here’s what’s really awesome about the new Power Prepaid plan. Simply do a one-time top-up of RM10 with the new Starter Pack and get 1GB of free high-speed internet every month – for life. Yes, for life as long as you keep the SIM active. This offer is valid for registrations before 31 December 2015.
The Power Prepaid Starter Pack costs RM8.50 (inclusive of 6% GST) and comes with preloaded RM5 credit. You’ll get 200MB of high-speed internet data quota, and 150 minutes of free calls within the U Mobile network. SMS to all networks cost 8sen/SMS and voice calls are at 5sen/30s.
On top of that, U Mobile is also throwing in 450 minutes of free calls to your friends and family on the U Mobile network, every month. This is distributed as 15 minutes free calls on a daily basis.
The Power Prepaid Pack has a validity of 10 days active period and 60 days passive period. To keep active, simply top-up. Every RM1 top up is equivalent to one day of active period.
Never be caught without data as the Power Prepaid Pack has free basic internet of 64kbps, subject to a fair usage policy of 2GB per month. Even if you lack credit in your account, you can still serve basic websites, post updates with Facebook Lite, Twitter, send WhatsApp messages and Waze around town.
More data hungry users can subscribe to U Mobile’s popular UMI bundles or MB plans via UMB or SMS. Plans are as below:
- UMI 20: 500MB + 30 mins calls @ RM20/month
