A woman was shocked to discover that her son had somehow managed to rack up a bill of RM586,553 on his smartphone. However, DiGi eventually noticed the error and it was discovered that the massive number was a result of a missed decimal point; the actual amount owed is “only” RM5,865.53.
While most of us in the city are enjoying our fast internet, streaming videos and music on the internet everyday, reading through social networks when we’re free, and downloading files at a relatively fast speed, what about the rural villages in this country? DiGi recently announced its Kg IFA (Internet For All) vision to bring high speed internet to rural villages, and is kicking things off in Kg Gong Chengal, Kemaman.
Now that the contract bundles for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus from Maxis, DiGi and Celcom have been revealed, which one is the more economical option? Which plan offers the best value for money to own over the entire contract period? We take all the plans offered by all three telcos and put them together so you can make an informed decision. The telcos are offering the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with plans ranging from a monthly commitment of only RM50 all the way to over RM200, so whether you are a light mobile user or one who practically stays connected 24/7, there is an iPhone postpaid plan catered for your needs.
Close to seventeen hours after the highly-anticipated pre-orders for the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were opened by local telcos DiGi and Maxis, the experience remains exceptionally erratic. The Maxis Online Store remains inaccessible, while DiGi’s one is a hit-and-miss affair. Eager customers are obviously not happy, venting their frustration at every available comment box online. Behind the scenes, both companies have been working on counter-measures to work around the issues faced.
If you’re not already aware, two of the three major telcos in Malaysia started their pre-order campaigns for the brand new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus at 12.01 am today. If you were one of the many who stayed up late to get your pre-order in, you might have been a little disappointed to find the Maxis and DiGi online stores (and main sites) inaccessible as soon as the pre-order pages went live. Celcom’s website remained operational, but that’s simply because the telco opted not to open pre-orders, and instead had begun taking Registration of Interest (ROI) since last week.
