It has been long rumoured that U Mobile is working on launching its own fibre broadband similar to its competitors. Looks like the day is finally here. U Mobile has officially partnered with TNB subsidiary company, Allo to provide fibre nationwide. The interesting thing is the highest package 1GB is at RM149.50.
It sounds good right! But there is a catch in it. I will explain you later in this post. Almost similar to other fibre providers, the U Mobile fibre broadband plan starts from 100Mbps, 500Mbps and 1Gbps. The lowest package is priced at RM129 monthly. Whereas, both the 500Mbps and 1Gbps are priced at RM199 and RM299 respectively.
By partnering with Allo, U Mobile is able to make this possible. Allo is a network infrastructure provider which was acquired by TNB to provide fibre optics to outskirts areas. Especially, for the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP), Allo was appointed by TNB to provide fibre optics to the selected locations. The best part of this partnership is users will be able to get the same speed for the uploads as well. For instance, a user who signs up to the 1Gbps fibre broadband, they will get to enjoy 1Gbps download and upload speed.
Are you an existing U Mobile postpaid user? If yes, then you will be eligible for the 50% discount on your monthly internet bill. Do note this is only applicable for the first two years only. In case you terminate your contract within 24 months, then you will need to pay the termination fee of RM500. According to U Mobile, the RM149.50 discounted price is only applicable to users who are subscribed to P99 and P139 postpaid plans only. If you are having the GX68 postpaid plan, then you can only get a discount on the 100Mbps plan only.
You can head over to the U Mobile Fibre Broadband page to check on the coverage area. But it looks, for now, U Mobile fibre broadband will be available to limited areas in Melaka, Cyberjaya, Perak and Kedah. If you living in any of these locations check the coverage and subscribe to the all-new U Mobile fibre broadband.
