DiGi now offers its Prepaid Internet starter pack in Micro SIM format via its online store. Couple of weeks back, DiGi announced the availability of Micro SIM as a replacement of existing sims. If you have the need for cheap internet on devices like the iPad 3G, this could be a worthy solution.
DiGi prepaid internet Micro SIM kit is sold at RM25 and it comes with 5 days preloaded internet usage worth RM10. On an average, it only costs RM2/day to get online but the minimum top up is RM10 or 5 days straight. Other denominations are RM30, RM50 and RM100 with 15, 25 and 50 days access respectively. However like any prepaid internet offering from DiGi, the max speed is capped at 384kbps. If you need anything faster, we suggest looking somewhere else.

DiGi has reduced its pricing of the HTC Aria to a much lower RM799. This of course comes with 24 months contract on DG Smart Plan. The price for 12 months contract however remains unchanged at RM1199.
Meanwhile, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and Curve 8520 promo price during roadshows seems to be parmanent now. On their website, the Bold is now shown as RM999 while the Curve 8520 at RM459, both on 24 months contract.

DiGi has finally revealed the official bundle pricing for the HTC Aria. It costs RM1199 over 12 months or RM999 over 24 months contract with DG Smart Plan. This makes the Aria similarly priced with the earlier HTC Legend for 24 months.
As posted earlier, the HTC Aria is pretty identical with the Legend. Both runs on Android 2.1, powered by the same 600MHz processor, 512MB ROM and 384MB RAM. However the difference you’ll get is a screen, believed to be non-AMOLED (SLCD?) and a smaller 1200mAh battery as compared to the Legend’s AMOLED display and 1300mAH battery.

DiGi is throwing a promotion for its DiGi Prepaid broadband on its online store. They are bundling a DiGi Prepaid starter pack and a Huawei E1550 USB Modem for RM169. The modem comes with 18 months warranty.
For the first 100 people who order online via Paypal, DiGi is giving additional RM70 rebate which is refunded back to your paypal account. This makes the bundle worth RM99 which is quite a steal. The refund will take about a month for them to process.
On the prepaid internet plan, the starter kit worth RM25 comes with 5 days of usage worth RM10. This prepaid internet plan is one of the cheapest at RM2/day but it requires a minimum of RM10 top up. This means you would need to use it for 5 days straight.
The biggest problem for this plan is the speed which is limited at 384kbps download and 128kbps upload. There is no daily data quota mentioned but on its FAQ the Fair Use Policy is fixed at 3GB a month which is rather odd. DiGi should have tied the data quota based on the top up duration/denomination.
This is a tough one to recommend as 384kbps is rather slow for broadband use. It doesn’t even go well with its Turbo3G claim since it is no faster than standard 3G speeds. Perhaps DiGi should offer more flexible options such as U Mobile that offers various speed and data quota.

How Smart is DG Smart Plan?
So far most data centric users would sign up existing postpaid plan with a bolt-on monthly data package. This is what we call Postpaid First, Data Second approach.
Thanks to online social networking such as Twitter and Facebook, more users are jumping on the mobile data bandwagon. What’s more interesting to note is that people are starting to communicate over mobile Internet either via Blackberry messaging or IMs such as Ping and Whatsapp.
