The same Wifi service (riding on the same Wifi network), available as [email protected] from Telekom Malaysia, is available for free to all users, with Internet speeds limited to 4Mbps, till further notice.

Chew Theam Siew, Digi’s Head of Prepaid said, “Commercialising Digi WiFi is a good example on how Digi listened to our customers to offer services that are relevant to them. During the pilot it was found out that there are pockets of customers who are dependent on WiFi hotspots to stay connected such as those who are always on the go and unwilling to utilise their mobile internet quota. These became the basis on how we structured our WiFi plans into bite-sized usage plans as well as the decision to bring the internet to where it is needed most. It is our hope that our new WiFi service is able to provide them with easy access to the internet and to stay connected to what matters most no matter where they are.“

The Telco said the Digi WiFi hotspots service is commercialised after a successful 2-month pilot programme held end of last year in over 277 locations located in Klang Valley and Seremban.

Digi WiFi can be activated by first turning on the WiFi connection of a device and search for #DigiWiFi. Customers need to follow the on-screen instructions, select “Buy Now” and activate the chosen WiFi pass. Customers can also find the hotspots nearest to them via the MyDigi app.

For ease of convenience, payment for the WiFi pass is made via Digi Direct Operator Billing, where the sum will be directly deducted from the customers’ prepaid balance or added to their postpaid bill.
