Robert's Google+

What exactly is Webe ? It is a mobile Internet company in Malaysia. It open to public usage on September 30, 2016. There are things to know before buying Webe Internet service.

1. Enhance Telecommunication Business

Mobile Internet business in Malaysia is tremendously huge. One may think that Celcom is national mobile carrier due to it wide coverage nationwide, in fact, the real Internet player is Telekom Malaysia, the provider of Internet connectivity to every homeuser.

 It is safe to say Celcom, Digi and Maxis are three large mobile Internet providers in Malaysia before the Webe company step in the industry.

2. TM's master plan

Telekom Malaysia has always been dominating in home user Internet business. Streamyx and Unifi proved to be more stable landline Internet connection. It is the only Internet provider in Malaysia allows user enjoy unlimited data access.

It is not a secret that the stagnant of computer sales has dampen sales of TM service. The rise of smartphone has least and no growth to the TM market share.

3. TM and P1

The downfall of P1 mobile Internet business allows TM to buy it's company shares. Before all this, P1 received tremendous amounts of bad complaints from many of its subscribers. Bad image of P1 company is lifted when the news broke out that TM is buying its stake.

It is a win-win situation for TM and P1 as Telekom Malaysia is finally venturing to mobile Internet business for the first time breaking with traditional landline Internet service with a strong brand and foundation laid out by P1. Whereas, P1 has been engaging with Midas touch ever since with vast resource and technical espect offered by TM.

4. Unlimited Data

In history, It seem like there was never one mobile Internet company in Malaysia could offer unlimited data access. Neither are Celcom, Digi, Maxis, Umobile or even P1 itself. The one Internet company could make such marketing claim for unlimited data is carrying the brand name TM.

5. Unlimited Call

Do we have to come for this disccusion ? Wechat, Whassap and Line are not happy with that. Not we  dislike calling, we are more fond on the voice function than a call. Unlimited call may drag us back to the real-time calling but it will never stop us to shift from voice and texting seamlessly to a dialling. It will never get us to unistall Wechat, Whassap and Line. 

Besides, it might seem differ with those using Internet service living in rural areas where Internet is unable to be reached. Dialling still is an ideal way as if you are calling at offshore, cave and

6. Cheaper Price Tag

RM80.00 + for an unlimited data is quite a reasonable price for ordinary. From Webe company point of view, it still profitable because the policy of personal unlimited mobile data.

7. Tethering Problem

It is only wise to have criteria to use Webe service. If everyone start to use Webe as sole Internet service, there will be a backfire to TM landline Internet service. To charge as much as RM6 for 2 hours, less people are going to use tethering on Webe mobile Internet access to the computer.

Webe Internet connection is " Personal " as oppose to traditionally free offered by most of the mobile Internet company in Malaysia.

Would you sacrifice the usage of free tethering as an exchange to unlimited mobile Internet access ? if your answer is yes, then, webe is certainly for you.

8. Webe Marketing

It has been a joyful ride with Webe company rewarding users with cash rewards and some other prizes. It is all over the news and it seem like a too-good-to-be-true marketing scheme to attract users to test their product.

First Webe launched an app allowing Malaysian to get to know more about Webe. Then, it started to reward people with an incredible prizes. Luckily, those who won the prizes only needed to fill in personal information rather than paying a small fee for being a member.

I do not know you but I heard some crazy news that every Webe employees get a new high-end smartphones out of nowhere. Even before the launching of Webe service, On free time, Webe employees will drive to your neighborhood in a small van as if it deemed a beautiful day, therefore, they will reward you with cash rewards up to RM300 or a high-end smartphone such as Galaxy S6. All you need to do is participate and spin the wheel while they will capture your photo of you winning a prize and upload it on their official Webe Facebook page.

9. The Next Big Thing

It solves the mystery whether mobile Internet data can be unlimited likened to a landline Internet connection. There has been lots of rumor in the past that user could subscribe to an unlimited mobile data with merely RM30 monthly fee with a small tweak. The tweak however, it was not much a convention business practice as it will be using third-party such as VPN.

Imagine one can surf Youtube without the worry of data cap and sudden increase of hidden fee charged on gullible mobile end-user. It is all now a horrible past, Webe is the new savior for the miserable mobile Internet experience.
