Over the course of these few months since the new government was formed, we Malaysians have been seeing a big overhaul in how internet used to be priced. Little did we know, U Mobile is also taking proactive steps to make sure their service is affordable for the everyday users – hence the introduction of the new Unlimited HERO P139 postpaid plan.

The Unlimited HERO P139, as the name of it suggests, is priced at RM139 per month. It comes with unlimited high-speed data, unlimited high definition video streaming, 50GB of hotspot (they can detect), and 3GB of free data for roaming across 5 continents.

The extra 3GB of free roaming data in a total of 36 destinations, including the United States of America, France, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, South Korea, Thailand and Singapore. Take a look at the table below for the full list of countries.

Obviously this means that frequent travelers will get to enjoy this free roaming data. 3GB is not much, but at least there is something to use. Also there are terms and condition when it comes to this Roam-Onz as well.

    • Roam-Onz Global extends the 3GB free roaming data to an additional 24 destinations

U Mobile believes that we are #barulahbest, because we are always upping the ante from rapidly expanding our own 4G LTE network across Malaysia with the latest technology to continually enhance customer experience with plans that are relevant and offer the best value because we know what our customers desire.

Cutting through all the fluff and looking at the full list of terms and condition on U Mobile’s website here, we can see that there are indeed limitations when it comes to P2P usages. Imagine playing a game of For Honor and you’re locked down to only 64kbps. Yikes.

That aside, I highly suggest you to read up the T&C before subscribing to this plan. It looks good – sure, but do consider all of the other factors that affect your quality of usage too.
