In March 2020, internet traffic went up by 23.5% during the first week of the Movement Control Order (MCO).
The increased traffic and slow down of the internet forced many Malaysians to use their mobile data to stay connected to their families or study and work online. Weekly mobile data consumption shot up by 30% too during March until early May.
With more citizens relying on mobile internet during the pandemic, Digi, one of the largest telcos in Malaysia has decided to step up. They revamped their postpaid offerings, giving users more value, and a fast and easy package no matter their hobbies.
Here are five main points to take note from this updated package.
1. Digi’s New Postpaid Plans Now Start At RM40/Month
Digi’s new postpaid plans come with a renewed pricing, starting from RM40 a month. This plan entitles you to 10GB of all-access mobile internet service, with unlimited calls to all Malaysian networks at no extra charge.
Based on a market analysis by Ookla, Digi was the fastest mobile operator in Malaysia for the 2nd half of 2020. With the brand’s new revamped all-access internet service, you’ll be getting a fast mobile internet service without any restrictions, even on the weekends, which would be optimal for those off-work PUBG gaming sessions.
2. There Are Free Add-Ons To Choose Based On Your Lifestyle & Data Needs
Signing up for Digi’s new postpaid plans gives you access to choose free add-ons. You’ll also get better deals with plans above Digi Postpaid 60.
For example, with Digi Postpaid 60, you’ll get 25GB of internet and unlimited calls every month. But since starting your Netflix binge, you now need more data. You can opt-in for an additional 10GB of internet monthly, for free.
Alternatively, if you’re a mobile gamer that often spends on monthly gaming passes, you could go for the add-on which gives you a RM5 monthly rebate on your subscriptions on EasyAdd, Google Play or App Store at no extra charge.
Note: You will need to sign a 12 or 24-month contract with Digi to be eligible for these add-ons. Alternatively, there are add-ons that you can pay for, to get additional mobile data. Each user is limited to 1 add-on.
With Digi Postpaid 60 and above, you can get a Gadget SIM for RM10 a month, which gives you an additional SIM card for your gadgets, a discount of up to RM30 a month on Digi’s Fibre Broadband, or a monthly rebate of RM10 for the Digi Mobile Broadband package.
3. Subscribe For Additional Family Lines At A 50% Discount
Primary line users on Digi’s new postpaid plans can get additional supplementary lines starting from RM20 per month.
Example Scenario: You’re a dad of two, so you’ll need a total of 4 lines. You only use the phone for internet surfing and work-related communications, while your wife only uses her phone for social media and YouTube videos.
As for your kids, they can be seen either binging on a new K-drama or a television series or slaying monsters in Genshin Impact.
To get the best deals for your data-heavy kids, you go for the Digi Postpaid 60 Principal plan as you can share your internet quota with your kids if they need it.
Here’s what you’ll need to pay: RM60 for 25GB of internet (Primary), RM20 for 10GB of internet (Supplementary), and two RM30 for 25GB of internet (Supplementary). So for a family of four, all you need to pay is RM140 a month.
4. Get Access To New Phones With Monthly Payments
If you’ve been itching to get your hands on the latest phones, Digi’s PhoneFreedom 365 gives you the chance to do so, with zero upfront payment and a zero-interest instalment plan. Digi also lowered the commitment for PhoneFreedom 365 from Digi Postpaid 90 to Digi Postpaid 60 as well.
You can get the iPhone 12 Pro Max through Digi for RM188 a month, but you’ll need to sign up for the Digi Postpaid 120 plan to be eligible for this.
So by paying RM308 a month, you’ll be getting 65GB of all-internet access, unlimited calls to other Malaysian numbers and a new phone. Like other Digi PhoneFreedom 365 plans, you can switch up and get a new phone by the 18th month of your payment.
