Digi has revealed that the company has now discontinued the Digi Up postpaid program immediately. This confirmation took place in an SMS that the company has sent to customers.
Quietly launched to the public back in February, Digi Up offers customers the ability to purchase smartphones without any upfront payment. The postpaid plan also comes standard with Digi Shield protection plan, priority helpline, and yearly upgrade option alongside 40GB all-day quota, 1000 SMS, and unlimited calls.
However, there is one huge catch to the program though: the phone does not belong to the customer. Specifically, customers have to move on to a new phone after 24 months or 30 months if they choose to take the extension option. To put it bluntly, the Digi Up is pretty much a perpetual leasing scheme.
Meanwhile, Digi didn’t provide any reason behind the sudden termination of the postpaid program. No further details regarding the status of existing Digi Up customers were mentioned in the SMS as well. If you are one of such customers, we advise you to reach out to Digi immediately if the telco has not contacted you yet.
