U Mobile has been busy the past year rolling out it’s own 4G LTE network across Malaysia. Earlier this year, the carrier announced that it would be rolling out its own infrastructure and ending its network sharing agreement with other network providers. With this announcement, U Mobile joins Maxis, Digi, Celcom and Yes 4G as the only carriers in Malaysia with their own network infrastructure.
That said, U Mobile has not just been focusing on their network infrastructure. In fact, over the past year, the carrier has introduced a slew of compelling prepaid and postpaid plans which brought even more data, better connectivity and other benefits to their users. The company isn’t just stopping there; they are introducing their biggest postpaid plan yet.
The new Unlimited HERO P139 plan brings unlimited high speed data and calls to consumers for only RM139. That isn’t all. U Mobile’s Unlimited HERO P139 plan also comes with 50GB of HotSpot (tethering) bandwith as well as Unlimited HD Video streaming. However, users will note be able to utilise their unlimited high speed mobile connectivity to tether freely to their devices. Instead, U Mobile is allocating 50GB of data specifically for Hotspot or tethering purposes in their new plan.
“U Mobile is a truly Malaysian company and we are proud to serve everyone in the country. It has been a momentous year for Malaysia and we want to add to the happiness among Malaysians by providing the best experience to enable everyone to do what they love and for them to share and spread their unlimited joy and passion. This brings me to U Mobile’s #barulahbest which enables our customers to enjoy unlimited discoveries of all that Malaysia has to offer as well as any of the 36 destinations covered under Roam-Onz or Roam-Onz Global, where they have free data to share their overseas discoveries with their loved ones back home.”

That said, the one feature which sets the new Unlimited HERO P139 plan apart from the market’s offerings is their inclusion of their Roam-Onz package which has 3GB of roaming data. This allows users to be connected on-the-go when travelling to 12 countries in the Asia Pacific region. The countries are: Australia, India, Bangladesh, Singapore, Indonesia, South Korea, Cambodia, Laos, Taiwan, Philippines, Hong Kong and Thailand. For a limited time, U Mobile will also be bundling their Roam-Onz Global with the P139 plan. Roam-Onz global allows users to roam in an additional 24 countries worldwide which include Sri Lanka, Austria, Russia, Ireland, South Korea and the United States. Upon depleting their roaming internet quota, users will be automatically trigger the U Roam Data Pass which provides 500MB of data daily for either RM10 or RM36 a day, depending on the country. However, keep in mind that users will need to activate roaming services prior to leaving Malaysia.
The new Unlimited HERO P139 plan comes as the latest offering in U Mobile‘s repertoire. The company keeps pushing the boundaries when it comes to providing a cellular service which is truly global in its reach; allowing users to travel and live life to the fullest with their many events.
