Tune Talk: What’s Upcoming?

By now you probably know what Tune Talk has to offer. 22sen per minute and 5sen per SMS makes it the cheapest prepaid plan out there where users get to enjoy these rates without any conditions.

Apart from Voice, SMS, chance to win free Air Asia tickets and free personal accident insurance from Etiqa Insurance will that be enough? What is next?

MVNO roaming- Tune Talk is planning to expand as a MVNO operator to other countries, such as Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Cambodia and other Southeast Asian countries. So Tune Talk users get to enjoy roaming at local rates but these will probably takes years as there are different regulation in different countries.

GPRS only- As a no frills services, Tune Talk will be offering only GPRS on Celcom’s over crowded data network and there will be no plans for 3G. An insider said that Tune Talk will be able to offer GPRS within “weeks” and only a pay per use plan will be available. There is also a possibility that pricing for this pay-per-use plan could be cheaper than 10sen/10KB.

Mobile Advertising- It seems this is one the reason why Celcom invested in Tune Talk. No details yet but mobile advertising is something that Tune Talk is looking at seriously.

Tune Integration- Tune Talk will integrate its mobile service with Air Asia, Tune Money and Tune Hotels. As a Tune Talk subscriber, you could get exclusive deal, prioritisation, and other benefits.

Tune Partners- In the future, Tune Talk customers might get to enjoy exclusive discounts or treats when they walk in or spend at certain places. For an example, their current partnership with 99 SPEEDMART could allow Tune Talk subscriberss to enjoy discounts while they shop at the store.

The Tune Talk prepaid sim pack does not come with a number and it is available at RM5 with a pre-loaded airtime of RM5. Customers get to choose their 010 Tune Talk number on the phone or they could do it on the Tune Talk website. You could also port in to Tune Talk via MNP.
