DiGi is now offering Free WiFi service for existing Broadband customers in the next few months. For starters, they have begun such service at 2 universities – Unimas in Sarawak and UMS in Sabah starting from 18th April 2011 onwards. This Free WiFi service however is only for postpaid DiGi Broadband users and those on prepaid internet, enterprise broadband and mobile data are not eligible.
This seems to be a good move for DiGi users as they can offload their data usage to WiFi. As a result, this will reduce their monthly broadband quota usage. Just recently, Maxis did something similar with its Maxis WiFi Hotspot subscription service. To use this Free WiFi service, you would need to login using your DiGi Broadband account and they have warned that multiple logins are not allowed. Speed is not guaranteed and it is mentioned as being delivered as trial and best-effort basis only.
