Hot on the heels of Celcom‘s latest postpaid plan announcement, Digi has come up with their own new plan — the Digi Postpaid 80 (More Calls & SMS) — which offers a 10GB of data quota for RM80/month plus unlimited calls and unlimited SMS to 3 Digi Friends.
No matter how you spin it, 10GB of quota for RM80/month isn’t too shabby as we have seen a similar offering from Celcom with their FIRST Gold plan. The problem with Celcom’s plan is that they split your quota between data that you can use anytime and data that is reserved for weekends.
Unfortunately, Digi’s new postpaid plan operates under this same mechanic — the only difference being how they split it. With Digi’s Postpaid 80 plan, the telco is offering 7GB of anytime data with 3GB of weekend data.
On the surface, it seems like a better split compared to the 5GB+5GB that Celcom gives because it offers you more flexibility. Unlike Celcom, who splits your weekend quota evenly between each weekend, Digi gives you all 3GB upfront, leaving it up to you to decide how to manage your weekend data usage.
But which is really better?
Well, the good thing about Digi’s weekend data solution is that it is up to you to manage your weekend data. Say, you were connected to your home’s WiFi network for an entire weekend, you still have all your quota to split between the remaining weekends.
With Celcom’s split, if you happen to spend a weekend in an area devoid of coverage or if you don’t switch on your data, you immediately lose one weekend worth of data quota. However, the good thing about that is if a month has 5 weekends, you get an extra weekend worth of data.
Digi’s Postpaid 80 also comes with unlimited calls to all networks and unlimited SMS to 3 Digi Friends (standard SMS rates are 10sen/SMS). However, you won’t be able to sign up for a device contract with this plan.
Looking through Digi’s website, we noticed that this new postpaid plan is essentially Digi’s old Postpaid 78 plan plus Digi’s new RM2 for 3GB of weekend data add-on service. This weekend data add-on service is also applicable for customers on Digi Postpaid 98 More Internet and above, as well as Digi Postpaid 78 More Calls & SMS and above.
Digi already has the most postpaid plans of any telco in Malaysia, did they really need to add another one? What do you guys think of this plan? Let us know in the comments below.
