A new Celcom begins

Now Celcom has rebranded their prepaid plans. For those aged between 12-25 years old, Celcom is offering the UOX and SOX starter packs.

Calls are as low as 15 sen per minute to any numbers and a maximum 6 sen per SMS. I believe this is currently the lowest prepaid rates in the country and it is targeted to students. More here.

For those aged 25 years old and above, Celcom is offering the Prabayar Celcom Blue. The Mobile World website will have more info on this plan, later today.

After many years, Celcom has finally decided to bring down those rates. Previously it had 3 different prepaid plan with one of it offering the most expensive prepaid rates in the country @ RM2.x0 per minute for outstation calls. Now the Celcom Blue offers a flat rate at only 45sen per minute.

Earlier, Celcom re-rebranded its postpaid plans, and now the prepaid plans. What will be next? More content and services? Rock on Celcom!!!

I can already feel the power of Mobile Number Portability(MNP) in this country and looks like another telco war is about to begin. As a consumer myself, I am excited to see things change in this industry and definitely we as consumers will be benefiting from these changes.
