speakOUT rebrands itself, launches prepaid plans and non-contract device bundles

Prepaid mobile service speakOUT has launched its rebranded corporate identity today, as well as two new prepaid SIM packs. These offerings have tourists and youths in mind, with no-contract phone bundles and various pay-as-you-go plans for data, text and talk times.

From L-R: Dato' Ng Wan Peng, Chief Operating Officer of Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) receiving a token of appreciation from  Greg Oon, Co-CEO of speakOUT.

If you've not heard of speakOUT before, the company was first introduced to Malaysia in 2011, operated by Pavo Communications Sdn Bhd, an ASP licensed Mobile Virtual Network Service Provider (MVNSP). speakOUT also happens to have a carrier agreement with Digi, and boasts a unique marketing channel through 7-Eleven convenience stores nationwide.

The first of the two new plans is known as speakOUT Prepaid, and is targeted at youths. It retails at RM16, and comes with RM2 worth of talk time and 500MB of data for 30 days. Next is the Tourist Prepaid, which costs RM50. As you can guess from the name, is made with tourists in mind. This comes with 100GB of high-speed Internet, 20 sen per SMS and 15 sen per 30 seconds of voice calls to “top 20 countries” for a week. If you need extra data or talk time for any of these plans, speakOUT also has add-ons for each of these prepaid plans that you can purchase.

Finally, you can also get your prepaid plans from speakOUT bundled with phones without any contract or commitments tied to them. For RM119, you get either a flippi1 clamshell feature phone (with a VGA camera, 2.4-inch TFT display, 800 mAh battery) or an S16 candy bar feature phone (with a VGA camera, 2.8-inch QVGA display and 1,000 mAh battery). For a little more at RM199, you can get the Infinite G4 smartphone (dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 4-inch WVGA display, 2MP camera with LED flash, 1.3 MP front camera and Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat). Stepping up higher in the price range for RM299 is the Ding Ding SK1 Plus (quad-core 1.3GHz processor, 4.5-inch IPS FWVGA display, 5MP camera with LED flash, 2MP front camera and Android 5.1 Lollipop) and topping the all at RM749 is the ZTE Blade V6 (quad-core 1.3GHz procesor, 5-inch IS HD display, 13MP camera with LED flash, 5MP front camera and Android 5.0 Lollipop).

All these devices come with a speakOUT Base SIM and RM50 preloaded, so you can pick and choose the SMS, voice and data plans that fit your needs. They will be available in April, and also in 7-Eleven stores, potentially making them the most expensive things you can buy there.
