Here’s the list of 7 things you should know about Webe (now Unifi Mobile 99) plan. The purpose of this post is to help you to understand and hopefully enlighten your understanding about Webe plan before making any decision to port in to this package.

Update: I’ve been using this plan for quite some times and so far I’m happy with the unlimited data and coverage. Speed? I’d say there’s room for improvement.

Update: Good news! After some times, Unifi has decided to permanently provide FREE 10GB LTE hotspot monthly.

The following is the list of top 7 things you should know about Webe (now Unifi Mobile 99).

1. Webe (now Unifi Mobile 99) plan

A: Yes. You can use Webe services for peer-to-peer downloads at 64kbps speed.

Q: Am I allowed to use the unlimited voice minutes to make calls for commercial purpose? (E.g. by contact centers)?
A: No. You are only allowed to make calls for personal purposes within the set fair usage policy.

Q: Can I perform bulk SMS or SMS blasting using webe?
A: No. You are only allowed to send text messages for personal purposes within the set fair usage policy.

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 the 3G coverage. As for mobile service, they have nationwide coverage. You can check the LTE coverage here.

7. 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 supports 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 difference until I get my hand on it).

Final verdict

In my opinion, this is one of the best mobile plans you can get. The no string attached for the unlimited data, calls, and SMSes plan with only RM79 sadly, now this plan worth RM99/month, I bet no other telco can beat this offer — with the same price as of now.
