ORIGINAL STORY (12:35 PM):
When Tenaga Nasional Berhad launched its National Fibrerization and Connectivity Plan pilot project in Jasin a few months ago, a number of mobile telcommunication providers who participated in the pilot started offering their own fibre broadband plans within the area, including Digi. We have learnt today that Digi has started to offer the same service outside of Jasin.
We were first alerted on this development through a thread opened by Lowyat.NET forumer with Hobbez who received an SMS regarding Digi Home Fibre service this morning. We then reached out to Digi’s representative who has confirmed that the mobile telco is indeed offering its fibre service in selected areas within Selangor.
Specifically, Digi has revealed that their Home Fibre plans are now available in Subang, Rawang, and Kajang. To find out whether your area is covered by their Home Fibre plans, you will need to enter your address on Digi Home Fibre’s official website.
In terms of pricing, the Digi Home Fibre 50Mbps plan goes for RM 99 per month while the 100Mbps plan is listed at RM 129 per month. We assume that the speed stated on the site is download speeds although we have reached out to Digi for further details with regards to upload speed on their plans.
We are also waiting for their confirmation whether Digi’s Home Fibre is running on the telco’s own infrastructure or through other organizations such as TM or TNB.
If you live in any of these three areas and want to check whether Digi Home Fibre is available for you, just head on to this website.
