- Designed for customers with multiple devices or who share with family members
U MOBILE Sdn Bhd has launched its Internet Share Plan, claiming it was the first telco in Malaysia to offer data sharing.
Its new plan gives subscribers the flexibility and convenience to share data and voice minutes with multiple devices, the company said in a statement.
At RM68 per month, the new postpaid Internet Share Plan is bundled with two SIM cards, 3GB of data and 60 minutes of voice calls to all networks. Different from the tethering protocol that only allows sharing of data via USB or cables, the two SIM cards allow data to be shared between two numbers with the usual function of calling and messaging.

The plan is specially designed to fit customers who own multiple devices or share with family members, and would turn out to be much cheaper than having individual plans for different devices, U Mobile said in a statement.
“Realising … how consumers now own more than one device to get them connected to the Internet, we have created Internet Share Plan to do just that,” said its director of marketing Jasmine Lee.
“Unlike other plans in the market that only allow minutes and SMS to be shared, we allow sharing of data and are proud to be the first mobile operator in Malaysia to offer this,” she added.
The Internet Share Plan also gives users the convenience of managing all devices through one account. Customers have the option to share up to three devices with an additional fee of RM10 monthly for the third SIM card.
U Mobile said it is also introducing the new Super Broadband MB68 plan that gives user an additional 5GB of data over the existing 5GB allocation, still at RM68 a month. However, the additional 5GB is applicable for off-peak usage, between 2am to 8am daily. The promotion is valid for a year for any sign-up from now to Oct 31.
