A new telco has entered the market with claims of being "the country's first truly customisable digital mobile service"

That telco is Yoodo, a digital-based mobile service with the ability to let users customise plans according to their preference. 

What this means is that you get to choose and pay for what you truly need in a mobile plan – whether that may be more data or more call minutes. 

The service lets you pick the amount of data, calls, and SMS you need each month, and pay for just that

Do you require more data but less call time this month? Sure, just adjust the sliders accordingly and you're all set.

Data prices start at RM20/month for 2GB, with the maximum capped at RM150/month for 100GB. The number of call minutes and SMS start at RM5/month for 50 minutes, and RM3/month for 50 SMS respectively. 

If you're unhappy with your plan selection, you can choose to amend it anytime at no additional charges. However, do note that Yoodo's plans renew automatically at the end of every month, so any changes should be made before that. 

As Yoodo is a digital-based telco, the signup process and customer service are done exclusively through the app

Upon registering, you can pick a new 011 mobile number or port in their existing number at no additional cost.

The SIM card can be delivered to you via Standard delivery which is free and takes up to three days. Alternatively, the Express option promises delivery within 24 hours through local on-demand delivery provider GoGet.

Yoodo also offers a special roaming add-on. For just RM10/day, you can use your existing data, calls, and SMS in 12 selected countries.

The countries are India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Cambodia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Laos, and Brunei. Roaming features are not available in countries other than the 12 listed but Yoodo said more countries will be added to the list very soon.

Yoodo is available on both Android and iOS devices
