Digi Broadband Review

This's my first time to write a review about a Tele company product. Like the motto I always uphold to, "good things must always share with people mar" ^^

Frankly speaking, I never have faith in Malaysia broadband services. Lots of my friends are using and complains never end. Slow, unstable, costly, termination fee etc ><

But this time, Digi Broadband changed my perception, totally! Digi, which owned in majority by a Norway tele corp, is doing fantastic job under CEO Johan Dennelind. In Malaysia who doesn't know about the famous Yellow Man (now known as Yellow Coverage Fellow)?

Digi launched its 3G broadband in this March. It's true that when come to wireless broadband, people tend to think of Maxis, Celcom and P1 Wimax to name a few. But believe me, Digi Broadband has the competitive advantage and let me tell you why>


Digi Broadband Done Right offers 3 packages which are Discover, Explore and Extreme. What really differentiates Digi Broadband from other rivals is Digi's honesty with its speed. Digi tells it provides an average or minimum download speed of 700Kbps, not like others UP to 3.6Mbps which in fact is quite impossible.


Discover package is only RM58 with 700Kbps download speed and 3GB usage; while Explore package is RM108 with same 700Kbps speed but larger 10GB volume. Extreme is RM188 with fast 2Mbps speed. There's NO contract, NO termination fee, No activation fees! Just pay RM58 and you can enjoy the real high speed broadband within 2 hours.

The BEST thing is, if you're a student, you'll get a FREE Digi modem which other sim cards can function normally as well. It's not like Maxis or Celcom modem which strictly available for one company.

Or, for those with own modem, you just have to pay RM53 for the RM58 Discover package; RM98 for the RM108 Explore package and RM168 for RM188 Extreme package. It'll be a relatively large amount of saving for few months time! XD

Digi Broadband Modem, actually is the Huawei modem.

Well, package sounds good. But what about SPEED? SPEED is most important! We don't want paying 100 bucks but can't even watch Youtube T.T


Digi Broadband speed is awesome! I tested the speed at around 9.00pm, 25 August 2009, which believed most of the users are online.

And the result was breathtaking! 1.07Mbs download speed, which is higher than the stated 700kbs.

Not believing, I made another try~~~


An average 100kbs download speed for a 300 Mb file, for broadband can be considered as good edi :)


Always get frustrated to wait Youtube to buffer? Just like a friend of mine from JB, subscribing Maxis Broadband RM 108 package... Youtube...ermm..well... wait 30min for a 10min clip. He's utterly dissapointed!!! Not worth the penny! T.T

For Digi, at least I don't have to wait for Youtube to buffer. It's smooth~~~

Lucrative package, considerably fast speed----- what about Coverage???

In terms of coverage, I have to say Digi is still behind Celcom and Maxis. Currently it just covers Penang and KL. Digi's CEO Dennelind said in year end Digi will double the Penang coverage and cover the whole Klang vally and major cities like Johor Bahru and Kota Kinabaru.

In Penang... well, not bad!

Another good thing is, if the area is without 3G, Digi Broadband can still run EDGE which others can't, equivalent to 2.75G and faster than the GPRS.

Most important it covers 3G in USM area... or more precisely, Bukit Gambier area, where most of the hostel students reside!

I personally tried friend's Maxis broadband there, and subscribed to Celcom before I terminated on the 5th day. Very slow and low coverage I would say in that area. P1 Wimax?? I never used before so I can't make a comment.

By investing less than RM 2 a day, we'll get high speed connection. Never worry to disconnect during the one-attempt online quizzes, tonnes of assignments and of course, Facebook! Haha


Coverage in KL. Will be fully covered in the year end.

In short, Digi Broadband really offers a whole new experience for broadband users. If you're looking for an attracting packages, fast & stable connection, Digi can be your smarter choice!

Try Digi Broadband. The Yellow Man can do awesome jobs, really! =P

Do SHARE with me your broadband experience in any location & any company.

Together let's increase the broadband penetration in Malaysia and most importantly, fight for a better internet speed cause todate, whoever rules the Internet rules the World! XD

Dalton ~ 小白 said...

amazing! Even me, the ex-DIGI promoter oso get interested~But one thing is, how's the monthly payment/charge/fees? And does it cover the Serdang UPM area (KL border)? If it does then I would most probably get one too~

Beh Wei Chean said...

hehe. Digi the smarter choice.

Monthly payment is RM58 (3Gb usage) or RM108 (10 Gb usage)

For student we've free modem. The modem can support any other network too!

Serdang UPM i'm not sure.. from the coverage map it's still not in. By year end it'll b covered. U can always ask ur nearest outlet.

Lowyat now is promoting RM88 for the RM108 package... b hurry!

哇,你公然在blogspot介绍商业产品,你不怕被block account吗?而且还批评“红的"
“蓝的",真得太佩服你了!

“黄的"宽频数据用量超过3GB后不是有另外收费的吗?
