Competition is heating up in the prepaid space as telcos are dishing out more free internet than before. After announcing its RM75/month 7GB postpaid plan with unlimited calls, Digi is now revamping its prepaid offering with free high-speed internet when you top up.
You can get free internet when you reload as little as RM10, and enjoy up to 1.5GB free each month. Nope, this isn’t your free basic internet but non-throttled internet at full speeds.
There are 3 options available which vary on reload amount and validity. For most users, a typical RM30 top up would grant you 1.5GB of free high-speed internet that’s valid for 30 days.
As comparison, both U Mobile and TuneTalk offer 1GB of free high-speed internet when you top up RM30/month each month. The only cumbersome step, is you would need to redeem it manually from Digi by dialing *888*1# and you have to do it within 3 days upon reload.
To squeeze more data from your ringgit, you can get a total of 3.5GB high-speed internet on Digi for only RM30/month. After redeeming the free 1.5GB internet, you can subscribe to a 1.5GB monthly internet plan at RM30/month, and then redeem another 500MB from its Super Deals promo. According to the FAQ, this promo runs from 1st February 2016 until further notice.
Looks like Digi is really whacking U Mobile on both postpaid and prepaid, which is good for us consumers. Maxis, your move next.
