Best Postpaid All in One Plan for Smartphone

According to The Star Tech News, penetration of smartphone in Malaysia hit 63% in September 2013, I believe now should be close to 70%, therefore when choosing a postpaid package, call and internet data bundle all in one plan will be my first choice. SMS would not weight as heavy as before, since almost every smartphone users got Whatsapp, Line, WeChat, KakaoTalk, and so on.

There areĀ  more than 10 telcos in Malaysia that offering various packages, but I’m choosing only the Top 4 largest telcos (Celcom, DiGi, Maxis and U Mobile) and we focus on postpaid packages.
