As some of you already know, the Jaringan Prihatin Programme has already begun on 5 May and all the telco brands have already started to launch their own plans for the Rakyat. We have posted some news from YES 4G not too long ago but more telco brands are releasing theirs. With this, we figured that we will just make a compilation of all the Prihatin packages.
In this compilation, we have YES 4G, Yoodo, Digi, Celcom, Maxis and U Mobile. Without further ado, check out the Jaringan Prihatin Package comparison below!
YES 4G - Free phone, free mobile data and more for B40
In an effort to help the B40 citizens, YES 4G will offer free phones and mobile data for an entire year. Called the YES Prihatin Learn-From-Home Families and Learn-From-Home Individuals, both are free of charge.
Both plans are more or less the same which includes the aforementioned free phone, FrogAsia Mobile app access and an RM50 Shopee voucher. The only difference is the mobile data which are 30GB and 15GB mobile data per month respectively for a year. For more information, you can check out their official Prihatin page here.
Yoodo - 80GB data for RM20/month for one year
In Yoodo's case, the company's Jaringan Prihatin package offers 80GB of mobile data for RM20/month and the registration for it has already begun from 5 May until 31 July. Users will have access to this offer for 12 straight months until 31 July 2022, which is also the final redemption date for the subsidised offer.
By the way, Yoodo users can check their eligibility to register for the service via the Yoodo app. The name is called Prihatin Pass 20GB which would enable users to claim an additional 2GB daily for free that can be used in an hour.
