Through WeChat, Digi customers can manage their mobile account and perform various transactions such as checking their Digi account status, purchasing Internet quota, gaining access to Digi rewards and sending feedback to Digi’s customer service. WeChat users who are not Digi subscribers can also connect with the operator via the application. To connect with Digi via WeChat, look for “DIGI_MY”. In its announcement, Digi and WeChat were not clear as to operating hours of the service, so we can’t say if Digi_MY on WeChat is available 24/7.
In any case, if you’re a Digi Weekly or Monthly Prepaid Mobile Internet data subscriber, you can use WeChat to connect with Digi without using up the quota from your subscribed data plan.
The internet has become so intertwined in the fabric of our lives that we forget it even exists. Mobile connectivity is so ubiquitous that we don’t care who provides the connection, as long as we’re connected and the connection is fast and stable, we’re happy.
It’s ironic then that telcos, the people that connect people to the internet, can’t seem to connect with their own customers.
Why is that?
One possible reason is the ubiquity of the internet itself. Customers don’t care about telco brands, they care about fast and stable connectivity that’s cheap and with a lot of data.
But Digi wants to be more than just an internet company.
It may sound like fluff but the brand that has brought a lot of fun and new things to the industry feels that it has so much more to give to its customers, and that its purpose of existence is so much more than just making money.
It wants to inspire.
“Our role at Digi is to help spread this inspiration, infecting the world with fun and excitement, one person at a time.”
So what does this mean to you?

Do you know if you’re current mobile provider is screwing you over? Don’t Bodoh is a new website that aims to educate Malaysians of their current mobile plan and compares them with other options from other competitors.
We’re not sure who’s behind it but it claims to be presented by an independent entity. A quick check on its domain name whois info reveals Cenxus Multimedia (presumably the web developer) as the domain owner but that’s usually the way to conceal the actual person behind the scene.
To use the comparison is pretty simple, just enter your average monthly spends, select which provider you’re with in either postpaid or prepaid and then select the plan you’re on. It will then find other similar plans from other telcos along with a rating if it is a good plan or not.

Telcos have been shouting about wider mobile coverage and most of them have embarked on a network upgrade exercise to keep up with growing demand. Despite that, there are users that struggle with mobile black spots. A situation where reception is just so bad that you can’t even make or receive basic phone calls. There are a lot of factors that causes this including distance from the nearest base station as well as infrastructure of a building which hampers signal performance.
Now you can take matters to your own hands (sort of), as DiGi is introducing FemtoCell for DiGi Business users. If you’re wondering what FemtoCell is, it is basically your very own base station that runs on your existing internet connection.
Telcos and brands are trying hard to get your attention and what better way to do it than to disrupt your normal routine? In a special movie viewing for its customers, DiGi had given them an unexpected surprise when the trailer for Taken 3 was shown. In a bid to promote the Galaxy Note 4‘s immersive experience with its Quad HD display, a cinema viewer was called out to pick up the Note 4 at his seat.
Watch what happens after the break.
