Malaysian telco U Mobile is now offering unlimited data for customers who are really into gaming. While music and video lovers previous got some love with the telco’s Video-Onz and Music-Onz offerings, gamers can now enjoy the same benefit as well. Like the previous unlimited video and music offering, Game-Onz will allow users will now be able to enjoy playing online PC games without consuming your high-speed quota.
How much is this service going to cost? There are a total of 3 Game-Onz add-ons available. Its base offering is at RM18/week which gives you unlimited Gaming Data plus 500MB high-speed data. There’s also a monthly option at RM50, which gives you 10GB of Game-Onz data plus 2GB high-speed data. And finally, if you really want the full package, there is the Game-Onz RM70 option which gives you unlimited Game-Onz data plus 4GB high-speed data.
As a bonus, users will also get Music-Onz which comes with unlimited streaming on Spotify, Tidal, JOOX and more. However the Video-Onz option is not included and that has to added-on as a separate option. The Game-Onz option will only cover data used inside the game that also includes patch updates that happen within the game itself. However, if the patch updates are via something like the STEAM client and not within the game application, then it will not be covered by the Game-Onz option.
So what games are supported? U Mobile has teamed up with three major game publishers at the moment; STEAM, PlayOne Asia and Garena so the games that are supported will come from their catalogue. This will include, DOTA 2, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Team Fortress 2, League of Legends, Fifa Online 3, Blackshot and Echo of Soul. They are also in the midst of expanding the support for other games and publishers.
Also introduced today is the option to purchase game credits, specifically STEAM wallet codes and MOL Points using U Mobile prepaid balance. And as a special promo, U Mobile is giving additional MOL points if users reload from now until 31 December 2016. Conversion to Garena Shells and Playone Playcash are coming soon as well.
