U Mobile has revised its BlackBerry Plans which now offers Free Unlimited Data. When U Mobile’s BlackBerry plans and packages were revealed, it offered unlimited BIS service on daily, weekly and monthly basis with additional 5sen/MB charge for other data usage such as video streaming. The price for weekly has been reduced from RM10 to RM9 as well.
A week ago, U Mobile had introduced its Unlimited BIS + 5GB data plan at RM68. This begs a question whether long term monthly subscriber would go for its typical RM40 monthly plan or RM68 unlimited + 5GB since both comes with data with no exchange charge.
For the normal daily, weekly and monthly plans, the permitted “unlimited” usage quota is anyone’s guess as it wasn’t mentioned. It is likely that either the standard download speeds are lower than the RM68 plan or it comes with minimal quota before it gets throttled.
According to the FAQ, the Free “Unlimited” Data is capped at 30MB for daily, 300MB for weekly and 1GB for monthly. There will be no extra charge if you exceed but speeds will be reduced down to comply with FUP. So if your non-BlackBerry service data usage is below 1GB, the monthly RM40 option would be sufficient. For heavier usage, you can get 5GB data for just additional RM28 (RM68/month).
