DiGi earlier today has introduced its newly revamped identity and brand strategy to represent its renewed focus on mobile Internet and customer’s engagement. Complete with a new logo that clearly identify the telco as part of Telenor Group, DiGi’s CEO Lars Norling stated that this is not just a mere new marketing image for DiGi but instead, it is a full blown change throughout the organization.
Claiming itself as an “independent entity that is not linked to any telco companies“, Don’t Bodoh looks like a nifty, professionally-done website that apparently allows users to “compare” telco plans and determine which one is most suitable to them. As we dug deeper in our effort to learn more about this particularly secretive “independent entity”, we learned that Don’t Bodoh is misleading users into believing that the site is actually giving sound advice to them.
In fact, Don’t Bodoh can be considered as a fraud depending on how you look at things.
DiGi and STAEDTLER Malaysia are working together to provide school supplies in the form of pencils and colouring pencils for the children affected by the recent flood disasters in the East Coast. With this initiative, the children will be able to get ready for the new school year.
As you might have heard, a number of states throughout Malaysia have been hit by massive flood due to heavy rain since last week. The situation is rather critical as the flood has not only forced thousands of victims in these affected areas to abandon their homes but also limit or even cut their access to essential supplies.
Hence, plenty of individuals, organizations and companies have set up collection centre where members of the public are able to contribute necessary items needed to assists the flood victims. That includes DiGi who is now doing so at its outlet in SS2 Petaling Jaya and Bandar Bukit Tinggi Klang.
[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.
