Communications and Digital (KKD) Minister Fahmi Fadzil announced that the government will introduce a new prepaid mobile internet plan that is priced lower than other existing plans on the current market. Dubbed the Unity Package, it seeks to help targeted groups cope with the rising cost of living, and is set to be rolled out starting from February 2023.

β€œThe prepaid package will be offered at the price of RM30 with 30GB of data for six months, with a speed of 3Mbps. Users will enjoy 50% savings compared to the existing package, which is from RM10 to RM5 per month,” said Fadzil, adding that the Unity Package is meant for youths, the B40 income group, senior citizens, disabled individuals, and veterans.

To clarify, the new Unity Package is actually an upgrade of one of the Keluarga Malaysia telco plans, which consisted of Pakej Remaja Keluarga Malaysia (for teens and university students) and Pakej Peranti Keluarga Malaysia (for households). Specifically, the Pakej Remaja Keluarga Malaysia offered 20GB of data for three months at the price of RM30, with a data speed of 1Mbps.

Fadzil also clarified that the latest initiative is made possible with the cooperation of major telcos in Malaysia – namely CelcomDigi, Maxis, U Mobile, Telekom Malaysia, and YTL Communications – and that the RM30 Unity Package is only the basic package. β€œIt is up to service providers to offer any add-ons,” he stated, saying that the service providers will announce more details soon.

β€œThe price reduction clearly proves that the government pays serious attention to the needs of the people to enjoy telecommunications services at a lower and more affordable price,” Fadzil further said.

In addition to revealing the Unity Package, the minister hinted as well that there are more β€œgood news” to be announced in the future, especially with regard to fixed broadband users. β€œThere are things in the pipeline, but we will wait for the right time to announce them,” he said.
