If you’re not purging on telco news yet, here’s another for the week. Digi has just announced its new Internet Sharing feature – not a new plan per se, but applies to existing postpaid subscribers. Sharing is caring? It sure looks like it.
What’s this Internet Sharing all about? It’s a ride-on service for all Digi postpaid plans that allows you to share data quota with up to six supplementary lines. It costs just MYR10 per supplementary line, per month. The only caveat is that the postpaid plan must have unlimited voice calls to all networks.
Which basically means you can even opt for the lowest Digi Postpaid 28 plan, add MYR10 for unlimited voice calls, and an additional MYR10 to activate Internet Sharing. This will total up to MYR48/month, excluding the cost of your supplementary lines.
You may want to buy internet booster packs to complement the Internet Sharing service. There’s a selection of 0.5GB for MYR5; 7GB for MYR35; or 12GB for MYR50. These data packs are valid for 30 days from the date of purchase.
Share with family or share with your gadgets
There’s basically two ways to share your internet. Firstly, you can share it with family. The new Family supplementary line gives you unlimited calls to all networks for MYR38/month. Note that this plan does not come with data, so data is shared with principal line.
Next, if you have multiple gadgets (which I assume you do), you can use Internet Sharing via an additional SIM. Note that this is a data-only SIM, so you’ll not be able to make calls or SMS with it.
Manage with MyDigi
To keep all your supplementary lines and data allocation in check, you can use the free-to-download and use MyDigi app.
An important thing to note is that once you’ve activated Internet Sharing on the principal line, you’ll lose the ability to rollover data to the next month. Supplementary lines with their own data quota, however, can rollover unused data.
