DiGi redefines shop-till-you-drop for MTV generation

First merchant WAP portal with branded retailers to woo DiGi Prepaid MTV Powerpack customers

Kuala Lumpur, December 9, 2005– DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd ("DiGi") in partnership with MTV Asia today announced yet another enhanced loyalty benefit to reward its valued DiGi Prepaid MTV Powerpack customers.

Malaysia 's first merchant WAP portal - MTV Powerpack Merchant Discounts - was launched today at a trendy bistro in Kuala Lumpur . It will host selected branded retailers, whose products and services will be offered to customers at attractive discounts.

All DiGi Prepaid MTV Powerpack customers are required to do is to download the merchant discount wallpaper from the WAP portal onto their mobile phones and flash them at any of the participating merchant outlets. With that, customers are entitled to enjoy on-the-spot discounts from the finest stores, clubs, restaurants and fashion houses.

This service is an enhancement of the existing Mobile Vouchers benefit which has over 100 merchants. With the addition of more relevant youth branded goods, the company hopes to attract more DiGi Prepaid MTV Powerpack subscribers demanding services in line with their youthful lifestyle and interests.

DiGi's Chief Marketing Officer, Chee Pok Jin said: "The youth is a very important market for DiGi, and one of our core segment focus. As an innovator, it's a great challenge to create new and exciting services for a generation that epitomizes style and trend, yet exacting in their demands for exclusivity and quality. DiGi and MTV understand that, and we have fashioned this portal with simplicity, value and relevance in mind."

"With our partnership with MTV, we will continue to delight our young-at-heart customers with offers that will enhance their lifestyle, and stretch the ringgit. Our exclusive deals with some of the best-known brands in the market will further strengthen the DiGi presence amongst the youth," he added.
