Malaysia’s DiGi launches prepaid service

DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd on Monday launched its intelligent Beyond Prepaid service. This feature extends prepaid call charges beyond existing parameters. It means that calls automatically get cheaper the more you talk. There is no need to review a range of tariff plans and select one that suits your usage. The rate per minute reduces with the amount of calls the user makes.

“This represents another first for DiGi and for Malaysia,” said Mr. Tore Johnsen, Chief Operating Officer. “What is unique about this dynamic tariff plan is that it goes beyond customers’ expectations by doing the thinking for them, taking away the hassle and inconvenience of having to work out what plans suits them best.

“It offers one of the lowest per minute rate as usage increases, an affordable call rate as low as 40 sen per minute. In addition, customers can make outstation calls, all day long at only RM1.20 per call,” he added.

DiGi’s new prepaid service, Beyond Prepaid will be available from September 23 for all existing and new prepaid subscribers. It is the most affordable prepaid SIM pack at RM38 and comes pre-loaded with RM20 worth of talk time and packed with a host of innovative features. These include automatic international roaming, MMS, faster internet connection via DiGi’s GPRS network, call waiting, call divert and multi-party conferencing.

Recently DiGi introduced its Friends and Family rate of 40 sen per minute nationwide all day long to any six DiGi numbers they frequently call. Its SMS rate is currently the lowest at 15 sen per message to any mobile phone in Malaysia or overseas.
