Tell me about DiGi 4G LTE plans

DiGi 4G LTE is not an automatic upgrade for customers. DiGi customers need to change their SIM cards to DiGinet+SIMs at selected DiGi Stores to activate 4G LTE service.

Only customers who subscribe to DiGi Broadband and Tablet postpaid plans with 6GB Internet quota and above (paying RM89/month and above) receives free 4G LTE service.

Customers with DiGi Broadband and Tablet plans with less than 6GB data quota do not receive free DiGi 4G LTE service. They will need to subscribe addtional DiGi 4G LTE On Demand 1GB Internet quota for RM8 per day or RM30 per month (Yes, RM30/month for 1GB data) to enjoy super fast wireless broadband in DiGi 4G LTE coverage area.

DiGi 4G for iPhone and other smartphones?

Sadly, just like Celcom 4G, DiGi 4G is data only at launch. It does not support smartphone nor iPhone 5.

DiGi 4G LTE coverage area

The first DiGi 4G LTE coverage areas, or “DiGi 4G LTE Zones” as they named it, is limited to a few areas in Klang Valley. Check out below DiGi 4G LTE coverage maps (click to enlarge) to see if you are lucky enough:

Thoughts

Disappointed that no free & auto network switching to DiGi 4G LTE network for all existing broadband customers. DiGi not only ask customer to pay for data quota, but now also ask customer pay for 4G speed. Not good.

Plus, DiGi 4G LTE coverage areas are very limited. In fact, it is only a few roads in Klang Valley. If you purchased DiGi 4G On Demand, make sure you stand where you are and do not walk outside the limited coverage area.

What do you think about DiGi 4G LTE? Do you think paying for higher speed is fair?
