PETALING JAYA: Celcom has rolled out its Mega Family postpaid plans and subscribers have a choice between unlimited data and speed for the entire family.

For the Mega 98 plan or better, users can choose between unlimited data or speed for both the primary and supplementary lines.

If you pick unlimited data, however, the speed will be capped at 6Mbps (megabits per second) for all lines, according to the FAQ.

For hotspot sharing, the quota for the primary line is dependent on the plan – 10GB for Mega 98, 20GB for Mega 128, 30GB for Mega 158 and 50GB for Mega 188. All supplementary lines get 5GB for sharing.

Also, only the Mega 158 and 188 plans will enjoy high definition videos and games, as well as high quality music.

Those who pick unlimited speed – which will be dependent on the user’s location – are limited to 40GB data for Mega 80, 50GB for Mega 98, 70GB for Mega 128, 90GB for Mega 158 and 120GB for Mega 188.

All supplementary lines get 30GB of high speed data.

If users exceed their quota, the speed will be throttled to just 64Kbps (kilobits per second) unless they purchase a top-up.

Users are allowed to switch between unlimited speed and unlimited data but only every two billing cycles.

All subscribers also get unlimited calls to all networks but will be charged 20sen per SMS.

The Mega 98 plan and above can also be bundled with smartphones, smartwatches and tablets.

Celcom Axiata Bhd chief consumer business officer Chee Loo Fun said the plans are meant to make connectivity affordable as people rely more on the Internet which requires more data.

Users can get up to three supplementary lines for the Mega 80 and 98 plans, and up to six lines for the Mega 128, 158 and 188 plans.

The plans are priced according to their names – for example, Mega 80 is RM80, Mega 98 is RM98 and so on.
