More Sabahans to enjoy DiGi broadband with new service availability in Labuan

Labuan, 4 AUGUST 2011: DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd ("DiGi") today launched 3G services in Labuan, covering 65% of populated areas in the territory, and making it the fifth market center in Sabah to enjoy the benefit of DiGi's Turbo 3G network.

DiGi's Head of Sabah Region, Ng Chak Khin said the expansion comes as part of the company's 'Internet for All' ambition to bring the power of the Internet to more Malaysians. "The newly expanded coverage area is timely as we see increasing demand for data usage among Sabahans. We intend to fuel the uptrend by aggressively expanding our 3G service to more market centres in the state, namely to Papar, Tuaran and Keningau by the end of this year.

"While we concentrate on building a more connected society in Sabah, we are also innovating to reach out to non-smartphone users so they can explore and enjoy the benefits of a mobile Internet lifestyle. A large part of this includes providing richer user experiences on their current devices, through social media applications such as DiGi Facebook SMS and Twitter SMS, and the DiGi-Opera Mini browser, to name a few.

From today, Sabahans can sign-up for a variety of DiGi 3G mobile internet packages in four locations, namely the DiGi Specialised Store in Financial Park, and the following dealerships: Cellphone Telecommunication and Big Win Shop (Tan Boon Hau Shoplots), and KT Phone (Jalan OKK Abdullah).

Also in conjunction with DiGi 3G availability in Labuan, interested residents can get more information and capitalise on customized DiGi Internet promotions at our road-show in September at the Labuan Financial Park (IOFC). Special promotions include broadband packages for an affordable RM38 monthly, and customer savings of up to RM240* for any of DiGi's Discover or Explore monthly data plans.

DiGi currently has a 46% population coverage in Sabah, with 3G services also available in Kota Kinabalu, Lahad Datu, Tawau, and Sandakan.
