As you might have read yesterday, DiGi has rolled out a set of new DG SmartPlan postpaid plans which also signifies the official availability of DiGi 4G LTE service for smartphones. While subscribers to these new plans receive access to LTE connectivity, how about customers that are still on the previous iteration of DG SmartPlan postpaid plans such as SmartPlan 48, SmartPlan 68 and SmartPlan 88?
If you are one of these customers, don’t worry if you still not able to utilize LTE connectivity on your LTE smartphone at the time being. Just like how it was stated in the FAQ section of DiGi LTE’s website, LTE connectivity will soon be made available to you according to the confirmation by Christian Thrane, the Chief Marketing Officer of DiGi at a media event earlier today.
Christian further stated that all customers of previous DiGi SmartPlan will receive LTE by this April. Of course, this is provided that these customers have switched to the new LTE-enabled USIM card and are using LTE-enabled device in the LTE coverage area.
However, if you don’t want to wait and prefer to have the LTE connectivity right away, all you need to do is just switch from your existing plan to one of the new DG SmartPlan – although this is strictly based on my own experience last night.
Prior to my switch to the new DG SmartPlan 78 yesterday, I was a long time DG SmartPlan 68 (which was replaced in March 2013) subscriber. Before I made my switch, my download speed was some limited to under 2Mbps even though I’ve changed to the new LTE-enabled USIM card and able to connect to DiGi LTE network.
As soon as I switch from the defunct SmartPlan 68 to the new SmartPlan 78, my connection speed then immediately increased to almost 16Mbps as shown above. It is also the same speed test result that I’ve included in our article yesterday. So, there you go.
