DiGi Prepaid Internet + Modem Bundle Promotion

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.
