webe is giving away 1-year free mobile data plans and smartphones

Even before it’s made its telco plans available, I bet you’re already confused about webe. First it introduced the brand without any telco plans. Instead it kicked things off with a Kickstarter-like platform called webe community. And now its unveiled another sub-brand of sorts – 850 by webe, housed at


Let’s take this one step a time. We know that webe is the telco formerly known as P1. We also know that P1 is a TM company. And we know that webe will be launching its telco plans in the second half of the year. Expectations are high though, especially when its MYR80/month unlimited plan was leaked.


webe community has nothing to do with telco services but it’s part of webe’s plans to make telcos ‘exciting’ again. And perhaps more human.


So what’s this 850?

As you may know, webe will run on the 4G LTE Band 5 at 850MHz. Hence, the name ‘850’. Other 4G telcos including Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile run on 1800MHz or 2600MHz.


You will need a 850MHz smartphone, not something hard to find. Most modern smartphones will support Band 5, including the Samsung Galaxy S7/edge, Huawei Mate 8 and even the ASUS ZenFone Zoom.
