DiGi 3G Broadband

Check out the official launch of DiGi 3G Broadband- read here

My opinion on price? Its expensive, especially when you need to pay upfront (RM300) to register for the broadband plus modem when I can buy a Celcom Vodafone modem at RM333 (plus a 12 months contract). I also think that the Explore and Extreme packages are overpriced.

While the existing players are competing on speed, DiGi is competing on Megabyte. An average speed on DiGi 3G Broadband is about 700Kbps, something that DiGi promise as they don’t use the word “up to….”, if you notice.

And when you use more than the monthly data cap, DiGi will charge you for it, at least you still get the same speed while Celcom and Maxis will reduce your Internet speed once you reach their monthly data cap. As for DiGi, the more their customers use 3G broadband, they will have more money to upgrade the bandwidth and this should be a win-win situation. I hope they will launch an online bandwidth meter to show how much data has been consumed by their broadband customer within the month.

My only advice is that you should go for DiGi 3G Broadband if you require quality of service especially when it comes to speed but don’t expect it to be mobile since DiGi still has a long way to go when it comes to 3G coverage.
