DiGi has just released its service plans for the iPad mini and iPad 4, and that’s pretty much a signal to expect Celcom and Maxis to follow suit in a few more days.
On the skin of it, the DiGi plans do not offer any savings from the retail price of the devices but the yellow telco is offering considerable savings on the accompanying data plans (the plans are tied to contract terms, of course). Across all the iPad data plans on offer, there is no excess charge if you exceed the allocated data limit but download speeds will be throttled down to what we can only assume as excruciatingly slow connection speeds. So if you’re on the cheapest data plan, you might want to be frugal with you connection because surfing on a tablet consumes more data than surfing on a smartphone.
