Digi has finally introduced a new broadband plan for the home. Unlike most broadband plans that offers only a fixed monthly internet quota for all your online activities, the new broadband from Digi offers extra data and even free data for streaming on your favourite music and video services.
Non-stop Entertainment Across 40 Channels
There are three new Digi Broadband plans – Broadband 30, Broadband 60 and Broadband 100. They come with 6GB, 20GB and 50GB of data for RM30, RM60 and RM100 respectively, and offer free streaming on 19 popular channels including YouTube, Astro radio stations, and more. If you are an existing Digi postpaid voice customer, you can even enjoy a rebate of RM10 a month for life as long as you are subscribed to the plans.
Digi Broadband’s data quota for Broadband 60 and Broadband 100 are split into two – one for monthly internet usage, and another for Stream on Demand. The telco’s partners for Stream on Demand include iflix, Netflix, Astro on the Go, HyppTV and more:
Digi only offers data for streaming on these platforms. Premium subscription is not included you can enjoy two months full access on iflix and 30 days trial on Astro on the Go for free courtesy of Digi.
The full breakdown of the new Digi Broadband is as follows:
Digi Broadband 30 is available for prepaid only, Broadband 60 is available in both prepaid and postpaid, while Broadband 100 is available for postpaid only. This means the packages will appeal to a wide range of customers, with the promise of fast, stable 4G internet speeds of at least 10Mbps or up to 20Mbps on 4G Plus (based on Digi’s internal tests) 80% of the time.
These speeds are also higher than the average national fibre speeds (according to Akamai), which is pegged at 6.4Mbps (Q1, 2016) – though the figures are definitely increasing quarter on quarter (5.9Mbps in Q4 2015 and 4.9Mbps in Q3 2015).
Take Your Home Broadband Outdoors
The new broadband plan from Digi is not just tied to your home. You can also use your data on the go with Digi LTE-A MobiFi. Simply insert your Digi Broadband SIM into your Digi LTE-A MobiFi and you can enjoy all the broadband offers while on the go, as the MobiFi device lets you connect up to 10 devices at a time. You can also stream to the big screen on your smart TV, Google Chromecast, TV Box, and on your laptop. Check out Digi LTE-A MobiFi to find out more.
This gives plenty of opportunities for experimentation. For example, frequent travellers may use their MobiFi and a Google Chromecast to stream content while in hotel rooms, providing entertainment that used to be very costly in hotels. Speaking of which, part of the Digi Broadband rewards include a 10% discount voucher for the Chromecast on Lazada.
If you already have an existing MobiFi or a SIM-enabled wireless router, you can enjoy the same benefits as above without purchasing a new one.
Do note that Digi Broadband quota is only available for local usage only. Once you’ve used up your bundled quota, you will no longer be able to continue surfing. You can purchase additional quota from only RM20 for 10GB at digi.my/mbb. Calls and SMS are not available on Digi Broadband plans.
Value for Money at Decent Speeds
Digi’s new broadband plan is definitely one of the most competitive home broadband plans available right now. You can enjoy 4G Plus speeds for a more affordable price compared to, say, paying RM160 a month for an 8Mbps connection.
The stable connection is also important because there’s definitely nothing more frustrating than having to buffer or be switched to low quality videos when you are watching your favourite TV shows.
