DiGi was established as digital mobile network in the country in 1995, but currently has become one of the largest telecom providers today.

U Mobile is the smallest network in the country providing only a 3G and 4G platform for customers whose needs a prepaid plan. Nonetheless, u Mobile is currently a telecom provider that gives out a cheaper data rates than its top rivals.

It is also easy to find its starter packs as any others telecom that providing prepaid plans to the customers.

One frequent complaints with Umobile is the lack of connectivity outside or urban areas such as Kuala Lumpur or Penang. Once should take consideration of this factor before deciding.

Prepaid Plans Verdict

Depending on the needs of the users and the offers provided by the telecom company in Malaysia, some of the prepaid plans has its owns solid purpose that any users could grab and use in different aspect such as;

Voice Calls and SMS

U Mobile Prepaid has the best value for this category. It would cost the users 3 cents for one SMS to its network and 8 cents to other networks while its voice calls would cost at most 9 cents for every 30 seconds of usage. Furthermore, calls made to other u Mobile numbers would not cost them and they can obtain 20 free SMSs for every 6 messages send to its network.

Mobile Internet

For this category, #Hotlink would bring the best value to its users. It offers them with free basic internet data alongside other mobile internet options.

In general, there would always be a data connection with any Hotlink SIM card but its network and speed would vary accordingly.

Social Media

Celcom provides users with two plans for this category but it is more than enough to pick and put this company in this category. The Chat plan is great for social messaging comprising Facebook, WeChat, WhatsApp, with at least 50MB of data while the Social plan with at least 150MB of data is free out of the expiration and thus users could use it until their quota runs out. Plus, users can also enjoy up to 500MB of free data when they used their plan in a Celcom Wi-Fi hotspot.

Most prepaid SIMs provided by Celcom is up and ready for roaming but its need a pre-top credit worth RM15 inside the SIMs. However, the ability of Celcom’s network coverage in Malaysia and up to 200 countries as well as an unlimited internet usage for its customers alongside free SMS receiver would make the plan rates worth the value for any users travelling abroad.
