Digi's new Prepaid Internet packs set to enrich customers' digital experience with dedicated streaming quota, digital rewards and free internet for IDD users
KUALA LUMPUR, 1 AUGUST 2016 - Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) today introduced two new Prepaid packs that promises to enhance customers' mobile internet experience by enabling them to stay connected at all times and enjoy more digital streaming content online. The new product offerings are in line with the company's ambition to become customers' favourite partner for their digital lifestyles.
The first of the new packs, Digi Prepaid Live, is the telco's ultimate streaming pack that offers free 8GB video and music streaming quota every month on top of the quota purchased through top-ups. Add that to the generous quota that comes with Digi's new top-ups, customers will have ample internet access to enjoy the streaming content that inspires them.
The free monthly 8GB of streaming quota is applicable for customers to use on Digi's 4G network that offers a consistent internet speed of at least 10Mbps 80% of the time. For a smoother experience, particularly when streaming high-definition (HD) content, customers with LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) capable devices can enjoy Digi's 4G Plus experience which promises consistent speeds of at least 20Mbps 80% of the time. Digi's 4G network now covers 76% of Malaysians while 4G Plus reaches 34% of populated areas.
Digi Prepaid Live customers can stream popular video and music content from a host of partners including YouTube, iflix, Spotify, and Apple Music, among others. Additionally, customers also receive free 100GB Capture cloud storage, unlimited calls and SMS to three Buddyz as well as exciting rewards from online retail and service partners such as Zalora, Lazada, Agoda and Grab.
The second newly introduced pack, Digi Prepaid Best, is the answer to customers' call for the ideal internet starter pack. With free basic internet and social messaging, subscribers can constantly stay connected with their family and friends on messaging apps with no additional internet charges.
A key highlight for Digi Prepaid Best is the free 200MB of daily internet quota given for all customers who use a minimum of RM1.00 each day to make international direct dial (IDD) calls to either Indonesia, Bangladesh, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam or China.
Furthermore, Digi Prepaid Best offers customers the freedom to call up to 20 'Kawan' for low call and SMS rates while also featuring very competitive IDD rates.
"We are witnessing a high-growth rate of 4G enabled-smartphone subscriptions throughout the nation, and with that, it is only natural for Malaysians' appetite for internet access and digital services to continue to grow. The two new Prepaid packs we are introducing today will provide customers with greater digital services as we continue to strive to become their favourite partner in their digital lives," said Digi's Chief Marketing Officer Loh Keh Jiat.
"Digi Prepaid Live was specially created to complement our customers' digital lifestyle by providing them with plenty of quota to have a great experience online.
