DiGi introduces new prefix numbers 014-30x xxxx and 014-31x xxxx to meet increasing demand

SHAH ALAM, 9 October 2006: DiGi today introduced two new prefixes - 014-30x xxxx and 014-31x xxxx - to meet surging growth in DiGi Prepaid subscribers.

The new prefix numbers will be available in both the Northern and Southern region due to the overwhelming demand in these areas. Kedah, Penang and Perak is allocated the 014-30 prefix and Johor the 014-31 prefix.

DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd Head of Prepaid Dushyan Vaithiyanathan said, "Everything that a 016 and 014-6 prefix number enjoys will be accorded to 014-30 and 014-31 subscribers."

"We offer the same starter-pack pricing, the same charges, the same quality of service and coverage and the same benefits as 016 and 014-6," he explained.

On the 014-30 and 014-31 prefixes, Dushyan said DiGi is despatching the new prepaid SIM packs to the Northern and Southern region as both areas are running short of 016 and the recently launched 014-6 prefix numbers due to increasing demand for DiGi Prepaid.

"We are happy with this development as it shows that more consumers are seeking to use DiGi Prepaid. A sign that realise our product is innovative, easy to use, effective, efficient and affordable," he said.

Dushyan said: "It is, therefore, important for us to be ready with ample supply of SIM Packs."

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission allocated DiGi the new 014-30x xxxx and 014-31x xxxx prefix numbers in response to the industry situation and urgent requirement.

With the new prefix, a DiGi subscriber calling a DiGi subscriber will have to use the prefix 016, 014-6, 014-30 and 014-31 as per the receiver's prefix number.
