M1 passport good or not?

Heard somebody mentioned green one not so good; my main reason to get this is try on different regions.

M1 Data Passport is for postpaid accounts, and there're charges like activation and stuff? I'm using the prepaid M Card that just draws from the existing data without having to pay for anything.

Not too bad, since I'm using it in a spare phone here and when heading across, can already get a MY line while queuing for my bus at Tuas CIQ.

Not sure about overseas, but I don't like the reception of the green one here.

I will give a try to the green data roam and subscribed their 2.4Gb for 30 days use ($15 damage), will see how good their coverage.

More of less will not continue my Hotlink tablet plan; inside still have 90Mb and RM$5 credit.

Just to let you know that coverage will be good but all on 3g network.

Speedwise can be improved...

Thanks for the info.

I am fine with any network being it is 3G or 4G as long as the connection is there.

Thanks! Just as well that I've recently switched my card from a 3G to a 4G phone, though mainly for use here. Good piece of info!

Actually any SIM card will do unless you really want to go in Malaysia very often. else just get on with it and just get any will do.

Have not data-roamed with my M1 postpaid line, so no idea about this.

Just for the 2 days, can grab cards like Hotlink Fast, Digi Best or Live, or maybe even U Mobile if that's the most convenient. Starter pack prices are around similar prices, just a matter of how much the dealer charges if they impose "extras".

Can refer to the respective websites for what each starter pack includes, and within the last 5 pages here there're already members sharing/suggesting where to buy, if those places are within the area you're heading for.
