DiGi’s Discovery Day broadband plan which offers 3GB of data for a mere RM38/month is now cheaper. If you order online now, you’ll get 50% off your subscription which makes it RM19/month which is rather a steal for cheap mobile broadband. The speed offered is average of 700kbps download and 200kbps upload.
However what they didn’t tell you up front is that this 50% promo is only valid for the 1st and 2nd month of your subscription. Such details is shown only when you hit the “More Info” button in the Online Store page. We all know Marketing gimmicks can be deceiving for customers but we don’t understand why can’t they be more up front on the terms. Most people might think that 50% applies throughout your subscription tenure when it is only valid for 2 months.
P1 too is doing something similar with their 50% promo but at least they make it visible that their 50% off is applicable only for 2nd and 3rd month. They are doing the same also for their new P1 MiFi device. Personally, we don’t look highly on such gimmicks and there’s gotta be a better way to promote their services clearly to potential customers.
Back to the Discovery Day Time offer, you can order this online with RM50 upfront payment where you get a SIM and RM50 credit which can last you more than 2 months subscription. If you need a short term broadband which you mainly use during the day, 3 months subscription without contract for this Discovery Day offer would only cost you RM76. After 7PM, you still can continue using it but download speeds are throttled down to 128kbps. If you need a 3G USB modem, you can add that in for additional RM100 at the online store.
