Power Prepaid (1GB) vs. U28 Postpaid (3GB)
No doubt that U Mobile Power Prepaid free 1GB mobile Internet is more generous than other telcos’ prepaid plans. It is a good deal if you live in the telco’s coverage area. We can’t help but want to compare it with U Mobile’s own recently launched U28 Postpaid Plan.
You pay an RM28 monthly fee for U28 with 3GB data quota, 50 minutes free voice call and free 100 SMS(U Mobile) and free 200 SMS(other networks). You would also like free 50MB daily roaming dataÂ when you are not in Malaysia.
The call rate is more expensive than POWER Prepaid Plan — 9 Sen (U Mobile) and 10 sen (other networks) for 30 seconds.
If you top-up RM30 for POWER prepaid plan, you will get free 1GB data quota and 450 minutes U Mobile call minutes for a month.
Don’t forget, you still have RM30 credit to buy UMI or MB plan for more Internet data or call minutes.
At a glance, POWER prepaid is more flexible with free data quota, more free call minutes, lower call/SMS rates, and credit to buy add-ons. But, the free call minutes is limited to 15 minutes per day. Buy RM30 UMI30 and you only get a total of 2.5GB data quota (Free 1GB + UMI30 1.5GB).
Do you want more Internet data or make more U mobile voice calls? As my friend said, few people make calls and SMS these days.

U Mobile POWER prepaid would be my second mobile line because it does not require monthly commitment. I simply top-up few bucks whenever I want to use its free data/calls.
If you are an active mobile Internet user, forget about U Mobile Power Prepaid. You should switch to U Mobile U28 postpaid plan instead.
