Digi counters Maxis with their own East Malaysian plan


A week ago, Maxis had quietly released a MaxisONE Plan that offers 5GB of data with unlimited calls and SMS for RM68/month. Many had gotten riled up as the plan was offered exclusively to those in Sabah, Sarawak and Labuan.

According to MDroid, Digi has just rolled out a similar plan which competes directly with Maxis. The folks on the east side are really getting spoilt for choice now.


Simply called as the New Digi Postpaid 68 promo, this RM68/month postpaid is exclusive to East Malaysian customers for a limited time only. It also packs 5GB of data like the MaxisONE Plan as well as unlimited calls to all networks. SMS is unlimited but it is only for 3 of your favourite contacts. On top of that, you also get internet rollover to carry forward unused internet to the following month. As an added bonus, there’s also 1 year free iflix subscription worth RM96 plus Capture Cloud storage of 30GB.

As a comparison, Digi’s current RM68/month postpaid plan offers 6GB of internet with 150 minutes of calls and SMS. Alternatively, you can go for their unlimited calls and text option but it comes with 3GB of data. So if you don’t really make more calls, the current RM68 for 6GB data offer is probably better but at least, you get a peace of mind of having unlimited calls with this East Malaysia exclusive promo.

There’s no info on Digi’s website yet but we reckon you can find out more at your local dealer in East Malaysia.
