Leaked images of Celcom's upcoming roaming plan details have revealed that we may not only get a roaming plan called Wonderoam with 1 weeks worth of roaming for RM138 but also that Celcom may be coming out with an upgrade to their current FiRST Gold postpaid plan, the Celcom FiRST Platinum plan. The leaked image does not reveal too many details about the Wonderoam roaming plan, but RM138 for a weeks worth of high speed mobile Internet overseas sounds like a very high value proposition.

It seems that the signed agreements between Celcom, P1 and TM back in January are showing results. This collaboration may probably end up turning WeBe into a new mobile operator. Originally WeBe was just a community site for anyone to post a project that they want to have happened, then with enough WeBe community to back it, to then start receiving funds for their project.
From the leaked photos surfacing from popular local blogs and websites, it seems that WeBe will be offering 20GB of data, 1000 talk time minutes, and 1000 SMS for RM8/month. Best of all their unlimited plan will only cost RM80/month for unlimited 4g internet, unlimited SMS and unlimited phone calls.
