Digi recently has jumped onto the free basic internet bandwagon with its new Smart Prepaid, putting an end to pay per use data charges. For those who prefer to make lots of phone calls including international IDD numbers, their Best Prepaid has been revamped with lower call rates. The new Best Prepaid starter pack cost RM8 and it comes with RM5 of preloaded credit.
DiGi has introduced Super 10, a subscription based promo which lets you call any local and mobile number for just 10 sen/minute. To enjoy this rate, it costs 99 sen a day with auto renewal subscription. To activate, dial *128*1*3# on your mobile.
As comparison, DiGi Best Prepaid normally charges 36 sen/min for calls and it is reduced to 12 sen/min after you hit RM1 usage. In terms of block charges, the normal rate of 36 sen/min is charged at 30 seconds, while the reduced 10/12 sen rates are charged at 60 seconds block.
Is this a good deal? Super 10 requires 99 sen per day which is like subscription/access fee. If subscribed for a month, that’s RM29.70 for subscription fees alone, without actual call credit. It all depends whether it is worth spending 99 sen for subscription just to save additional 2 sen/min when compared to hit RM1 usage rate of 12 sen/min. In this time and age, we don’t believe in paying for access fees and such high spenders would be better off with a postpaid plan.
