After purchasing the monthly pass on the Unifi Mobile app, you will have to redeem the “Unlimited 5G Data Pass” within 72 hours to enjoy unlimited 5G with the plan.

Celcom 5G

Celcom is the third telco in Malaysia to offer 5G services to consumers which started on 1st November 2022. Unlike the other two telcos that provide unlimited 5G, Celcom is offering free access to the 5G network which utilises your existing high-speed quota.

Celcom’s 5G service is currently offered for its non-unlimited plans listed below:

Celcom Postpaid with 5G

U Mobile 5G Prepaid

U Mobile also offers free 5G access on prepaid but this appears to be the worst offering of the lot. Customers on U25 and U35 prepaid are able to enjoy 5G but it is only offered using the speed booster. You won’t be able to enjoy 5G all day as these speed boosters can only be activated for one hour per day.

  • U25 Prepaid – Unlimited calls, Unlimited data at 3Mbps (FUP: 30GB) and no hotspot – RM20/month
  • U35 Prepaid – Unlimited calls, unlimited data at 6Mbps (FUP: 100GB) and 3GB hotspot – RM35/month

Check if your devices are supported

Before signing up or changing your plan, you are advised to check if your smartphone is supported for 5G by the respective telco. Not all telcos can support the same 5G devices and you can check their respective website for the full list. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G is able to connect to 5G on Yes 5G, but it is not supported on Unifi Mobile and U Mobile.

Unfortunately, the iPhone still doesn’t support 5G in Malaysia yet. A carrier update would be required to enable the 5G settings on the supported iPhone models.

Where can you use 5G?

At the moment, DNB’s 5G network claims to cover 33.2% of the population in Malaysia. Besides Kuala Lumpur, Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, the 5G network also covers selected areas in Selangor, Johor, Ipoh, Penang, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan and also Kelantan. DNB already has set up over 160 5G sites in East Malaysia such as Kuching, Bintulu, Miri, Kota Kinabalu, Lahad Datu, Semporna and Tawau, but they have not been switched on yet.   

In the original plan, DNB aims to achieve 40% 5G population coverage by the end of 2022 with 4,018 sites and it aims to achieve 80% 5G population coverage by the end of 2024 with 7,509 sites. As of 30th September 2022, DNB has deployed 1,915 5G sites.

You can view the current 5G coverage map on DNB’s website.

What about Digi and Maxis?

Although Digi has signed the 5G access agreement, it is still doing 5G network testing with its technology partners and DNB, and they have not shared any availability dates yet. Meanwhile, Maxis says they are seeking shareholders’ approval for the 5G access agreement and aim to settle it by January 2023.
