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.
[Update 11/5/2015]: A lot has happened since our last update. Almost all the telcos have new plans up their sleeves for the year, so hit the break to check them out.
[Update 26/12/2014]: We’ve added Celcom’s new postpaid plans with Optimiser to the list.
[Update 21/8/2014]: Since that quite a lot has changed over the past few months since posting this article, here’s an update to reflect all those changes. Maxis has removed most of its older postpaid plans and replaced them with an all new MaxisONE Plans that gives “limitless” calls and SMS from as low as RM78 a month. Celcom also renamed its data plans to the Celcom First One for those who complained about how the MaxisONE plans have too little data. Finally, DiGi added new iDiGi plans that are streamlined with its existing Smart Plan postpaid plans.
Just a little reminder, none of these plans is tied to any contract. Contract only applies for phone bundles, or when the telco gives you an extra discount for signing up for a contract. Otherwise, you will be free to change your plans anytime you want.
Hit the break to check out the changes.
In a surprising twist of events, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has released a press statement that contradicts what the Royal Malaysia Customs and the Domestic Trade, Consumerism and Cooperatives Ministry stated earlier today.
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.
Digi has rolled out a new forum, called the People Powered Hub, on its website. Despite having no official announcement, it looks like this is a one stop place for people to communicate with Digi and discuss matters about the telco. It also looks like an easily accessible place for information about Digi and its plans.
