Now that U Mobile has finally made its move in the telco price war, how does it compare to the other affordable postpaid plans offered by other telcos – Celcom First Basic 38 that offers 3GB of data for RM38/month, and Digi’s SmartPlan 50 promotion that offers 3GB of data for RM36/month?
It shouldn’t happen, and yet news of consumers racking up eye-wateringly high bills due to data roaming charges keep cropping up. With the world becoming ever smaller and ever so connected, it is becoming increasingly important and unavoidable to stay connected – even when you’re in other countries for work (or for holiday, for that matter). Want to make sure how to not experience a five-figure sum in your next telco bill? Better yet, want to know how you can even minimise the costs of data roaming? Read on!
Update: Sorry for the error! No contract is required for the promotion.
Celcom’s latest postpaid plan – Celcom First Basic 38, is without a doubt one of the most affordable postpaid plans in the market right now, and it looks like Digi has got something even better up their sleeves. The telco is having a new promotion that offers 3GB of data, 100minutes of free calls, 100 free SMS for only RM36 a month.
Great news for Digi subscribers who are residing in Johor Bahru, the telco recently announced that its 4G LTE connectivity is now available in the state. This is in-line with the telco’s commitment to fast track LTE rollout nationwide, following the recent launches in Sabah, Sarawak, and more locations in Klang Valley, with more areas to follow.
Back in 2013, DiGi and Deezer have partnered together to deliver music streaming service to the telco customers. Under the partnership, selected DiGi postpaid plans come with free Deezer Premium+ subscriptions which offers unlimited access to around 35 million songs in its catalogue on computers, tablets, and smartphones.
However, this will come to an end on 31 May though according to a mass SMS (as shown above) that DiGi sent to its customers yesterday.
In conjunction with Digi’s launch of 4G LTE in 1 Utama, the telco is currently having a roadshow in the mall, offering some pretty sweet deals for its device bundles. Get the Xiaomi Redmi 2, Honor 6 or Samsung Galaxy A5 for free, or get the Samsung Galaxy S6 at only RM999 – these prices are significantly lower than what the telco is currently offering on its online store.
Around a year ago, we were told that DiGi has planned to roll out LTE service for its prepaid customers but no time frame was given to us at that time. As it turns out, things have now changed as DiGi has revealed that its LTE service is now finally available for prepaid customers.
Digi is now offering the Lenovo Tab 2 A7-30 for only RM299 when you purchase a Digi Smartphone Prepaid from the company – no contract required. As with most prepaid bundles from the telco, the bundle comes with a Digi prepaid SIM pack, as well as free internet for 6 whole months.
