Available now at selected DiGi Stores, DiGi customers can own a MobiFi with easy monthly financing from as low as RM7 monthly together with any one of DiGi’s three (3) mobile broadband plans starting from RM25 a month.

There are two new models of MobiFi devices to choose from depending on the customers’ needs and requirements – a 3G MobiFi(Alcatel Y600) from RM7 per month or a 4G LTE MobiFi (Alcatel Y850) at RM18 per month. Both models come with a built-in battery, wall socket charger and an in-car charger.

Three new postpaid broadband plans are available either to be bundled with the MobiFi device or as a SIM-only subscription:

  • Broadband 25 – offers 1GB of data at only RM25 per month
  • Broadband 45 – offers 2GB of data at RM45 per month.
  • Broadband 65 – offers 8GB of data at RM65 per month (4GB [24 hours] + 4GB [2am – 8am])

Existing DG Postpaid subscribers will get a RM5 discount when they sign up for any of the broadband plans.

According to Praveen Rajan, DiGi’s Head of Products – Internet & Services, nowadays more and more Malaysians own multiple WiFi enabled devices, be it for their own usage or for their loved ones. However, many of these devices are not connected to the Internet especially when on the go. “MobiFi is an alternative way for customers to enjoy DiGi’s consistent Internet experience across many WiFi devices with just a single subscription,” he said.

“This latest product offering together with DiGi’s newly refreshed mobile broadband plans is in line with our mission to bring affordable Mobile Internet to more people across Malaysia,” added Praveen.
