U Mobile’s customers are fully Powered-Up for Pokémon Go with ample data, lures set up, discounted Uber rides and ten iPhone 6s smartphones up for grabs

KUALA LUMPUR, 8 July 2016 – U Mobile Sdn Bhd, the telco with the fastest network in Malaysia, is providing U Mobile subscribers the chance to win an iPhone 6s when they play Pokémon Go over a period of two (2) weeks starting from 10th August 2016 to 23rd August 2016. Apart from ten (10) iPhone 6s, U Mobile is also giving away RM42,000 worth of postpaid and prepaid credits as well as powerbanks to the winners of its ‘Power-Up for Pokémon Go’ contest.

The contest is not the only initiative that the telco has planned for its customers to mark the arrival of the popular augmented reality (AR) game in Malaysia. In fact, U Mobile is taking a total approach to enable their customers to power up for their Pokémon Go experience.

Firstly, U Mobile customers never have to worry about not having enough data for Pokémon Go, from the free 3GB of data from Power Prepaid to the 30GB of data from Hero Postpaid P98, there is a plan to meet the needs of every type of Pokémon Go Trainer.

Secondly, to give customers a boost in their hunt, U Mobile will have lures set up during the two (2) week contest period so that the number of Pokémon characters at selected Pokéstops will increase. These locations will be announced to customers via social media.

Thirdly, from 10th August 2016 to 10th September 2016, U Mobile customers will receive discounts off their Uber rides so trainers may get to their desired Pokéstops or Gyms faster. On top of that, the telco will soon be sharing some safety and gaming tips to enhance the play experience for their customers.

Finally, if customers are concerned that the battery life of their mobile phones will affect their hunt, they do not have to fear as U Mobile customers will enjoy special discounts when they purchase powerbanks from Lazada for a period of one (1) month beginning 10th August 2016.
