TM’s webe is a new hot things in the telco market, with the on-going RM79 promotion and the unlimited plan on mobile data, calls and SMS, I wish I can say that it is the most cheapest plan any telco can offer. But I need to know how does it actually means with the “unlimited” plan.
Let’s get to the point, here is the list of seven things you should know about TM’s webe mobile before considering to subscribe and let go your current mobile plan. Hopefully, this post can help to support your decision whether does it worth or not.

#6 LTE band
webe LTE network is leveraging on 850 MHz spectrum. They are currently focusing on expanding their coverage in Klang Valley and Johor Bahru. Other places will still be able to enjoy 3G coverage. As for mobile service, they have nationwide coverage. You can check the LTE coverage here.
#7 webe certified phone
To enjoy and experience the best quality service, you are encouraged to use a webe certified phone. You can check the list of webe certified phones here or you can check your smartphone specification whether it support Band 5 (850 MHz). But if your current phone is not a certified phone model, don’t worry, webe mobile services still can be used (not sure the different until I get my hand on it).
In my opinion, this is one of the best mobile plan you can get. The no string attached for the unlimited data, calls and SMSes plan with only RM79/month, I bet no other telco can beat this offer as of now.
