Heeding the Government’s call for affordable broadband, Digi has introduced a new broadband plan for those that require just data. For just RM20, you get a prepaid starter pack that comes preloaded with 1GB data and it is valid for 30 days from activation. That’s quite cheap considering its entry-level postpaid broadband is costlier at RM25/month for the same amount of data.
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 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.
