U Mobile Rewards the Winners of its ‘Knockout Frenzy Challenge & Contest’ with RM250,000 worth of prizes 

Kuala Lumpur, 20 September 2012 – When Siti Hajar binti Mohd Nor and Chin Shwu Ching signed up for a U Mobile broadband and postpaid bundle plan respectively, little did they know that their answers to simple trivia questions on the Euro 2012 and the 2012 London Olympics would see them taking home a brand new LED television set and a whole lot of prizes from Malaysia’s most innovative and dynamic telco, U Mobile.

Surprised but exhilarated, would probably best describe Siti Hajar and Chin’s feelings as they were both declared Grand Prize winners of U Mobile’s ‘Knockout Frenzy’ Contest, during the prize presentation ceremony held at U Mobile’s flagship store at Berjaya Times Square recently. They each won a brand new 55” Samsung SMART LED TV, a new Huawei MediaPad and U Mobile broadband internet access for three months’ worth almost RM17,000.

“I really did not expect to win. After getting the fastest and most affordable broadband plan in town for myself, I was just happy with the service. Now in addition to that, I was really pleasantly surprised when I was informed that I was the lucky winner of the Grand Prize for this contest. My family members were ecstatic when I told them I won,” said Siti Hajar, who hails from Alam Damai, Kuala Lumpur.

Equally surprised when receiving the news, Chin said the win was the best news she had received this year. “When I got the call from U Mobile, I initially thought it was a hoax until the caller verified the details and referred me to the website for confirmation. I am really happy to win this brand new TV and it is going to be the centerpiece in my home from today onwards. Thank you U Mobile,” said the 26-year old lass from Sri Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.

‘U Mobile’s Knockout Frenzy’ Contest was held from 18 June to 18 August 2012, giving new subscribers of U Mobile’s selected plans a chance to win lucrative prizes and, as a special offer, get 50% more data on top of their allocated quota in the following month.
