Finally it looks like DiGi has decided to properly roll out its 4G LTE connectivity starting off with the Klang Valley. DiGi 4G LTE’s page is now live for public viewing but wait, don’t be too excited yet because according to DiGi, its 4G LTE service is only for DiGi Broadband and Tablet plan subscribers during this first stage of implementation.
Existing and new customers who subscribe to DiGi Broadband and Tablet Plans with 6GB Internet quota and above will be upgraded automatically to 4G LTE services as long as you change your SIM cards to DiGinet+ SIMs at selected DiGi Stores. As for the rest of the Broadband and Tablet Plan subscribers, you can leverage on DiGi 4G on-demand when you are in the DiGi 4G LTE Zones.
If you wish to sign up with DiGi, the plans offered are as shown below:
DiGi Broadband Plans
DiGi Tablet Plans
For users subscribed to plans below 6GB, you can opt into the 4G network on demand simply by changing your SIM card to a DiGiNet+ SIM if you haven’t already done so. You can then proceed to activate it the service by visiting DiGi MyInternet (www.myinternet.com.my) and choose from the available options as shown above (RM8/day for 1GB or RM30/month for 1GB).
LTE Coverage zones in the Klang Valley includes Plaza Low Yat, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Kota Damansara, Subang Indah Villa, Sunway Mentari, Bukit Bintang, KDU neighbourhood and Cheras Pandan Indah. DiGi is working on increasing their coverage area and are also working on offering 4G LTE for small screens.
Just so you know, unlike what Maxis has to offer, DiGi’s 4G LTE is only for 2600 MHz Band 7 devices so sorry iPhone 5 and iPad users, this is not something for you, not yet at least.
Hit the break to find out more about the coverage area.
Look at what DiGi decided to surprise us with this Friday morning, the telco has officially announced its 4G LTE service in Malaysia, starting off with Klang Valley…sort of.
