MCO: Digi offers free 1GB data daily to all users, extra perks for businesses

As Malaysia enters the second phase of the Movement Control Order, Digi has updated its initiatives with more data and perks for its customers. As announced last week, the big 4 telcos including Digi are offering free 1GB data daily.

Free 1GB data daily

From 1st April until the MCO is lifted, all Digi prepaid and postpaid customers can enjoy free 1GB of data every day between 8am to 6pm. Here’s how Digi subscribers can redeem it:

Postpaid
In the MyDigi app and go into the Rewards feature. There will be an option for you to redeem your 1GB free data.

Prepaid
Also in the MyDigi app, go to the Box of Surprise feature and redeem it from there. Alternatively, users can redeem via the UMB shortcode by dialling *128#.

Business
Digi business users will also enjoy the same free 1GB data daily offer between 8am to 6pm. This is also redeemable via the MyDigi app’s Rewards section.

Do note that you only need to redeem once and you’ll receive the 1GB data daily. According to Digi, the previously announced benefits will still be available throughout the MCO. Digi also added that the free 1GB data is also applicable to postpaid wireless broadband subscribers but it excludes Digi Postpaid Infinite Plan users.

If you don’t have MyDigi app installed, you can get it on both Apple AppStore and the Google PlayStore. You can learn more about Digi’s consumer benefits during the MCO here.

Apart from free data, Digi is offering business free trials, short-term wireless broadband options and extra voice minutes under its Business Continuity Booster program.

The hotline solution provides you with a fixed-line number (03, 04, 05) and you can set up multiple extensions that you can set to forward calls to any number. Although your employees are all working at their respective home, this ensures that your business is still reachable by from a single phone number.
