Digi’s expansion of its LTE-A (Cat. 6) efforts in Malaysia, with the introduction of two new mobile broadband plans. These plans take advantage of the deployment of LTE-A in the Klang Valley, and offer a substantial data cap – with a catch.
Digi Broadband 145, as the name suggests, has a monthly commitment fee of RM145 and comes with 50GB of data. However, the 50GB data quota is split into 20GB and 30GB – the first quota can be used at any time, while the the other 30GB is only usable during off-peak hours (2am – 8am). Once the quota is fully utilised, the user can purchase additional add-on data quota or be cut off from the internet.
On the other hand, Digi’s Broadband 185 plan is priced at RM185 a month and offers a data cap of 100GB a month. The quota will also be split into 30GB anytime quota and 70GB only usable during off-peak hours. Customers will still be able to connect to the Internet once the quota is met, albeit at a lowered speed (512kbps).
To accommodate Digi’s LTE-A (Cat. 6) network, the telco also unveiled its latest mobile Wi-Fi device – the MobiFi. The device is actually a Huawei E5786 modem, which is capable of creating a Wi-Fi ac connection and share Internet with up to 10 users or devices. All this while running on a 3,000mAh battery built-in.
Existing Digi customers get to save more as the MobiFi will be sold at a discounted price of RM203 and RM25 off the monthly commitment fee for the mobile data plans. Customers will also get an extra 5% discount on the total bill for six months for opting for the auto-billing option.
Plans with MobiFi LTE-A bundles come with a 12-month contract, and an early contract termination fee is applicable. Also, do take note that all these prices are not inclusive of GST, and an upfront payment is applicable for those purchasing the MobiFi device. Refer to the table below:
Digi promises to deliver more than 10mbps speeds for more than 80% of the time with its latest Broadband 145 and 185 plans. To learn more about the plans or the MobiFi device, head on to Digi’s official website here.
