U Mobile has introduced two new U Postpaid plans, the U Postpaid 68 and U Postpaid 98 plans, with both offering generous 5G-ready data quotas at highly affordable monthly rates, as well as free global roaming in 63 countries.
The more affordable plan, the U Postpaid 68 offers 100GB of high-speed mobile data for RM68 per month, while the U Postpaid 98 plan provides 1TB (1,000GB) of data for only RM98 a month. These plans also offer free unlimited calls to all local networks, similar to the earlier launched U Postpaid 38 plan. But on top of that, these two new plans provide free global roaming and free incoming calls in 63 countries, including Singapore, Thailand, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
U Postpaid 98 plan subscribers are also able to share their mobile data with up to six family members, for RM38 per line via the U FamilyShare feature. This will allow member lines to share the 1TB data quota and also enjoy unlimited calls to all local networks. Subscribers can also tap into a flexible payment option, U PayLater, which allows them to buy selected 5G smartphones in monthly installments, with 0% interest.
Meanwhile, U Postpaid 68 plan subscribers are not eligible for either U FamilyShare or U PayLater. They are, however, able to tap into U SaveMore, which enables them to purchase selected 5G smartphones at a discounted price.
For better clarity, the table below highlights the features of the U Postpaid 68 and U Postpaid 98 plans:
|Features||U Postpaid 68 plan||U Postpaid 98 plan|
|High-speed data quota|
(4G & 5G internet)
|Calls to all local networks||Free (unlimited)||Free (unlimited)|
|Global roaming||Free (15GB)||Free (15GB)|
|Incoming calls when abroad|
|Free (unlimited)||Free (unlimited)|
|U FamilyShare||Not available||Available|
|U PayLater||Not available||Available|
According to U Mobile’s FAQ page, there is no speed cap for the internet quota; however, the speed will be throttled to 64kbps once your data is fully utilised. Another important thing to note is that you will not be able to use your monthly data for hotspot; instead, you will be provided with a separate 5GB data for hotspot usage. Once the quota is used up, you may purchase additional data of 5GB or 10GB for RM5 and RM10, respectively.
With the launch of the new postpaid plans, U Mobile is discontinuing its previous postpaid plans; existing Postpaid P38 plan subscribers will see their plan automatically upgraded to the new U Postpaid 38, while existing Giler Unlimited GX68 plan subscribers can continue to use it with no issue. Meanwhile, new users will only be able to subscribe to the U Postpaid 38, U Postpaid 68, or U Postpaid 98 plan.
You may sign up for the U Postpaid Plans via the MyUMobile app, U Mobile’s online store, or at any of the telco’s physical stores.
