A Customisable Mobile Family Plan Can Help You Manage Your Budget

A Customisable Mobile Family Plan Can Help You Manage Your Budget

Not everyone uses their smartphone for the same purpose, or the same amount of time. Some may use it mainly for social media, while others may spend half their waking hours playing online multiplayer games.

This normally doesn’t have much impact if you live alone, but when you have a family, not everyone will use their phone the same way. Most mobile plans are designed with a one-size-fits-all approach, which ends up with a lot of underutilised features that you’re paying for if each family member has their own mobile plan.

Customise your mobile plan for the whole family

Celcom MEGA™ Family Line offers the opportunity for you to customise your mobile Internet plan based on your usage patterns. This allows you to choose what you want to suit your data needs, and also allows you to provide for your family’s data needs without paying for unnecessary features that overlap when each family member gets their own mobile data plan.

Here’s how the Celcom MEGA™ Family Line allows you to add on users at an affordable cost.

Celcom MEGA™ Family Line allows you to add on up to three supplementary lines at just RM40 per month per line, allowing you to reduce the monthly expenses for your whole family.

For example, this is how the savings breakdown for a family of four compared to getting an individual plan for each family member.

As you can see, using the Celcom MEGA™ Family Line can help you reduce your monthly phone bill by 45%, which can add up to thousands of ringgit in savings per year.

Each Celcom MEGA™ Family Line allows you to choose between Unlimited data and Lightning internet. This allows you to cater to the varying needs of your family, without burdening you with features that you may not need.

Those that love watching the latest movies on Netflix or catching up on videos with YouTube, can opt for the Unlimited family line which gives them unlimited data for video streaming. They can also get 5GB of additional hotspot data; just in case they want to stream your favourite shows to a bigger screen and share with the whole family.

On the other hand, the gamers that love competing against other people in real time, have the Lightning family line which keeps latency down and prevents them from losing just due to a poor connection. As an extra bonus, the Lightning family line also includes 30GB of data quota.

If the family line and the primary line are both on the Lightning pass, you can also use your INTERNETshare™ to share the data quota for just RM5 per month. Just so that you can share the data load and not let any of it go to waste.

How the primary line works

Here’s how the Celcom MEGA™ plan works with its range of optional data packages that help you stretch your mobile budget further according to your data needs.

How it works is that you subscribe to the Celcom MEGA™ plan and get the basic package. If all you need is to keep in touch with people, you’re good to go. Otherwise, you can add-on from a range of Unlimited and Lightning passes to cater to your needs; just like you would with the family lines.

Better manage your finances

We live in a time where managing monthly expenses is more important than ever. While family plans have existed for years, the flexibility offered by Celcom MEGA™ Family Lines stands out from the crowd.

While our entire family may now have to work and study at home more frequently, this is also a time to strengthen family bonds while still allowing each family member the flexibility to use mobile data according to their needs.

It’s one thing to reduce your monthly costs, but it’s even better if you can choose to pay for features that you and your family really want to use – even if none of you use your smartphones the same way.
