Never too late than never, DiGi is the 3rd telco to offer 4G LTE service in the country. Just like other telcos, the service is initially available as a data only service with smart phones plans not being supported at the moment.
Their 4G Broadband/Tablet plans are as follows:
Broadband 4GB Day (2AM-7PM) – RM49/month
Broadband 4GB – RM69/month
Broadband 6GB – RM99/month
Broadband 10GB – RM139/month
Tablet 500MB – RM25/month
Tablet 1GB – RM29/month
Tablet 1.5GB – RM39/month
Tablet 2GB – RM49/month
Tablet 6GB – RM99/month
Above rates are for new subscription and existing DiGi Postpaid subscribers enjoy RM10 off the monthly fees. For existing DiGi Broadband and Tablet subscribers of 6GB, the 4G LTE service is enabled automatically provided that you have the new DiGiNet+ SIM.
For other subscribers, the 4G LTE service can be enabled by subscribing 4G LTE On-
Demand which is charged at RM8 per day or RM30 per month which both comes with 1GB quota. Strangely there’s no 4G modems on bundle and you would need to purchase it outright yourself elsewhere. They have posted a list of 4G LTE devices compatible on their network here.
According to their FAQ, DiGi’s 4G LTE service offers downloads up to 30Mbps and uploads of up to 15Mbps.
In terms of spectrum, they support devices that runs on either 1800MHz (Band 3) and 2600MHz (Band 7) frequency. Update: DiGi clarifies that they’ve made an error in the FAQ. The network only supports 2600MHz (Band 7) at the moment.
Coverage wise it is pretty spoty with 4G LTE coverage at parts of down town KL, Chow Kit, Ampang, Pandan Indah, Subang Jaya, Shah Alam, Bandar Utama and Kota Damansara. You can view DiGi’s coverage map here.
