U Mobile GX50 is one of the cheapest postpaid plans any telco can offer. I mean, for RM50 you will get unlimited internet data and voice calls plan, this is among the cheapest you can get. I
can’t remember any telco has a similar offer. Please remind me in the comment below.
Basically, how do you think U Mobile can offer such unlimited data at a lower price? Logically, if something is too good, there must be something to be traded-off. To understand this postpaid plan further, let’s dive in.

U Mobile GX50 postpaid plan
|Hi-speed internet||Capped at 5Mbps|
|Voice call||Unlimited to all networks|
|SMS||10 sen per SMS to all networks|
This is the drawback of a cheap but unlimited plan. Actually, at 5Mbps speed you can stream YouTube video on your smartphone with Standard Definition (480p) with no lagging and play any online games — as long as you can get 5Mbps. Usually, that video size only needs 3Mbps.
I still don’t get it. Unlike any other unlimited plan by other telcos, U Mobile still not able (or don’t want to give) to provide free SMS. Disappointed!
My wife is using this, so far so good. The only thing is there is totally no coverage at my village area, inside the house. Now my wife is using Unifi Mobile same as me but at the price of RM59 (subline but package plan same as 99). At least the coverage is better than U Mobile.
So, if you want to subscribe to U Mobile, make sure to check their network coverage at your usual location. You can check using U Mobile Coverage Map. If you have any issue with U Mobile service, I suggest you can directly contact them on their Twitter account @umobile, they look very responsive.
