  1. I tried the uMobile 8.50. the basic 200mb that came with it basically runs at snail speed, it says 3G on my status bar but more like EDGE and coverage was spotty at best. The same for digi. Once I topped up $10 for 1.5Gb you get 4G and better coverage. So I think the Telcos shud just be honest and say it is 0 data for the SIM card. I think a RM2 per day of data is a good deal for uMobile provided they give us 4G rather EDGE

    1. Hi john, thank you for sharing your experience with digi and uMobile! I’m sorry to hear that the free data included in the starter packs were not of the same quality as their paid data packages. Hope you enjoy your holidays in Malaysia!
