U Mobile today officially announced its new postpaid data plans. These new postpaid plan appeared on U Mobile website last week however it did not provide full details.
Speaking on the new offering, Dr. Kaizad Heerjee, CEO of U Mobile Sdn Bhd said, “The new packages are the results of an extensive market research we conducted. The youth market today has high data consumption on online activities including internet surfing, social networking and online gaming. With our new postpaid plan offerings, they can take advantage of the lowest entry fee for data usage and enjoy calls and SMS for free. This new postpaid offering is also a good starter for users currently on prepaid service who want to sign up for their very first postpaid plan and eliminate the hassle of topping up every time the credits run out.”
He continued, “The youth market is wary of postpaid plans as they want to avoid bill shock and expensive monthly fee commitment. We are confident that our new postpaid offerings will bust the myth that postpaid plans are expensive, and are therefore, only for the mature market.”
Speaking of company’s overall business strategy, Dr Kaizad emphasized, “U Mobile will continue to focus on being the leader in data service. Our recent launch of Fastest Mobile Broadband at the speed of 42Mbps, 3 to 5 times faster than any other existing offerings in the market, has surely placed us in an advantageous position in the market space. At the same time, as Malaysia’s most dynamic telco, we will continue to introduce innovated products to lead growth in the traditional voice and SMS sector,” he added.
