DiGi is finally into broadband. I’ve been waiting for the introduction of their version of broadband since last year. Celcom and Maxis offer similar wireless broadband, but I’m a Digi customer, and I do not want to jumble up my billing payment by paying for both Digi and another mobile telco. Sticking to one telco means I get to enjoy more benefits due to my loyalty.
Anyway, I’m not sure if the broadband service is officially launched already, but DiGi is always known for introducing great cheap things first.. and the blue, red and orange will follow suit…hehehhe
From what I could gather DiGi is offering the best deals at the moment. If you were to refer to their comparison chart below (click to enlarge), you’d see how they seem to have the upper hand in almost everything, from speed to price. Even better, they are going ‘contract-less‘.
Also noted is the fact that it is only available at the Klang Valley at the moment (as usual lah), so Sarawakians like me have to wait till ‘hell breaks loose’ to get the coverage of DiGi broadband.
Positively, the charges of the broadband are very much cheaper than other competitors with the lowest coming at RM56 flat rate (maximum of 3GB usage) for a 700kps download. There are 3 packages available. Nonetheless, there is a capped usage in which DiGi claims that you will still be able to access the internet after the capped limit, but your broadband connection will be throttled to a lower speed of 128kbps for all packages offered. I only knew that Maxis and Celcom do also cap the usage of their broadband, but I’m not sure whether they do cut down your speed, or ask you to pay more for your usage.
I see that DiGi is making the right move to introduce rebate for modem purchase, but of course giving out the modem for free would be much much better.
For those interested to know more, visit this link, or DiGi’s FAQ on their new broadband service here. As for me, a poor lad with the need for wireless broadband, from Sarawak… I’d just be able to register my interest in the broadband because it is yet to be make its way to Kuching or Sarawak. *SHAKES HEAD*
Sarawak’s seems to be always among the last to get stuff from DiGi… I’m sure they will go to KK first and Kuching will be among the last to enjoy DiGi’s Broadband.
…and guys, when I say broadband.. I mean the 3G thing, and not EDGE… and I’m not paid for this, but I wish I was.
