Digi Telecommunications (Digi) said it has launched Malaysia's first LTE-Advanced mobile broadband device bundles, offering internet quotas of 50GB and 100GB anytime, anywhere.
Digi's head of Postpaid and Digital Services, Praveen Rajan, said these two new plans under its mobile broadband offering, Broadband 145 and 185, offer 50GB and 100GB internet quota respectively and will be available to customers beginning 1 April.
Rajan said that with Digi's "all new MobiFi, customers will be able to create their very own WiFi hotspot, and share the internet with up to 10 devices, including non-4G LTE-A enabled devices. MobiFi's longer lasting battery life also provides customers with longer internet surfing time. These devices will initially be available in the Klang Valley and rolled-out to other market centres in stages."
"What we want is to enrich the lives of our customers and enable them to utilise the internet consistently," he said. "With these new broadband plans coupled with our widest 4G LTE and 4G LTE-A coverage, we are set to take on the rising need for internet access, enabling our customers to constantly be 'online' while at work or play."
"LTE-A is set to become the next step in the evolution of LTE networks," Rajan said. "The technology is expected to assist the massive increase in mobile data demand, enabling Malaysians to tap on much higher data speeds. The digital lifestyle of Malaysians is ever-growing and what better than to complement this lifestyle with a set of broadband plans that caters to various Digi customers."
"With the evolution of technology today, we now see a lot of demand for 4G LTE-A enabled devices," he said. "Today's announcement of our new broadband plans represents our testament to providing the best products and services as well as value at the right time for both our loyal and potential customers."
