Telecommunication companies will revert prices of their prepaid reloads to its pre-GST price starting 1 May 2015. While there has been a lot of confusion between the recent GST implementation and its effect on prepaid reloads, all that will now be a thing of the past with this latest piece of news.
Celcom and Telekom Malaysia have signed an agreement that will see Celcom leasing part of TM’s network.

Remember the Hotlink Tablet Plan that offers 1GB of data that is valid for 365 days? Starting 1 May 2015, the plan will be 50% cheaper than before, retailing at only RM30 for the starter pack. On top of that, the telco also has cheaper data add-on options with long validity period of up to 365 days.
[Update] This plan is even better than you think! You will get 3GB of Internet + 3GB of Wi-Fi as long as your Celcom First Basic 38 Plan is active if you sign up within the 6 months promotion period. Details available after the break.

Digi has rolled out a new forum, called the People Powered Hub, on its website.

It also looks like an easily accessible place for information about Digi and its plans.
