After a few months of offering its last call for webe’s never-ending data postpaid service, TM is finally unveiling UniFi Mobile, a new digital prepaid service that is rather similar to how Maxis’ ookyo works, however with the same mobile freedom like its predecessor. The service can now be signed up via the mobile@unifi app downloadable on iOS and Android devices, when launched for the first time you will be immediately be teased with 4 selling propositions, where you get to choose the plan that suits you, complimentary 20GB LTE data, no contract commitment, expiry dates and wasted data.
The service is fairly easy to sign up and if you have previously subscribed to webe or TM services, your details will be automatically picked up after keying your IC number, you can sign up to 5 lines, and the app will let you choose either a new phone number or maintain your existing number. Best of all, your SIM pack can be collected at any TMPoint centres or you can have it delivered to your address for FREE. Lastly, pay up RM10.60 (GST included) for the SIM pack using your online banking account or credit card, then you are all good to go.
UniFi Mobile’s prepaid offering is certainly a good effort for those who can’t finish up their monthly credit and data, hence you will only need to purchase add-ons and services that you need without needing to worry about its validity. The details of charges are still pretty scarce by now, for all we know the 20GB LTE data could be a one off offer when you purchase the SIM pack, and you will need to purchase the add-ons once you fully utilize the complimentary quota. The addon charges for data and calls are already available in the service’s FAQ page, which you can purchase data add ons as low as RM13 for 1GB of 3G/LTE basic internet and up to RM50 for 4GB LTE+4GB high speed internet.
At this time of writing, UniFi Mobile still doesn’t have an official product page.
