TM’s webe is the only telco that offers a single postpaid plan that comes with unlimited calls, sms and data for RM79/month. The biggest limitation, of course, is its tethering hotspot feature. Unlike other telcos that let their subscribers tether for free, webe charges you each time you need to use your phone as a WiFi hotspot.
Probably after getting enough feedback and a nudge from its competitor, webe has finally revised its WiFi hotpsot/tethering offering. On top of that, they are also throwing free hotspot data for the next few months.
The RM6 for 2 hour pass is still there but now webe has introduced a monthly RM8 pass option that offers 500MB of WiFi hotspot data that’s valid for 30 days. On top of that, you can also carry forward unused quota to the following month if you purchase another monthly pass before its expiry. So if you have 300MB of unused quota, you’ll get 800MB on your next month. You can continue to rollover your quota for up to a maximum of 90 days.
The new monthly based pass is better for casual users that require using their hotspot for a longer period of time. Of course, if you need a more data in a short period, the hourly pass of RM6 for 2 hours would be a better choice as you’re not limited to any quota constraints. You can subscribe both pass simultaneously and webe will utilise your hourly pass first before it taps onto your monthly pass.
As a limited-time promo, new and existing webemobile customers can enjoy 1GB of free hotspot data for 3 months. This is a 3-month campaign that runs between 12 April until 12 July 2017. According to the FAQ, the 1GB quota can’t be rolled over to the following month but you’ll get a fresh 1GB quota on the next billing cycle. You can track your usage on webe’s selfcare portal or via the self care app.
