Best Data Plans for Delivery Riders in Malaysia

May 21, 2024

For delivery riders in Malaysia, staying connected is a crucial part of the job — whether you're a rider for Grab, foodpanda, Shopee delivery, Lalamove, or any other e-hailing or p-hailing service.

Whether it’s navigating the city streets or communicating with customers, a reliable data connection can make all the difference.  Delivery riders require a data plan that supports their dynamic lifestyle.

Data plan must-haves for delivery riders

When shopping for a new data plan for your smartphone, look out for the following:

1. Ample data

To manage orders and navigate routes without interruption, you'll need to make sure that you have enough data to last for days. Without data, you won't receive any job notifications, and even navigation becomes an issue. Look out for at least 10 or 15GB.

2. Affordable pricing

To maximise earnings without hefty mobile expenses, try to find a data plan that gives you the most bang for buck. You'll want to avoid unnecessary add-ons like games and music — instead, look for the most amount of high-speed Internet data for the lowest fee.

3. Wide coverage

The day-to-day of a delivery rider can take them all around, even covering hundreds of kilometres (particularly for hardcore riders!). To stay connected even in the most remote areas, be sure to sign up for a telco provider that has nationwide coverage.

4. Flexibility

Avoid data plans that are limited to weekends, or certain times of the day for part of the data quota. Try to find plans that cater to varying work hours and data usage patterns, so you're always connected.

5. Free devices/device bundles

Another helpful tip is to look out for plans that offer free devices or discounted devices in bundles. It can be beneficial to carry two devices when on the job as a delivery rider, so that you have one smartphone for deliveries + navigation, and another for your personal use.

This ensures that your personal usage does not eat into your battery capacity of your work devices, and vice versa.
