Digi extends lifetime offers to differently-abled Malaysians

Connectivity is essential for all, and a basic human right, not a privilege. In fact, the United Nations in 2016, declared internet access and freedom of expression online to be fundamental human rights. In line with the company’s commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal #10 which aims to reduce inequalities in society, Digi is providing lifetime offers for differently-abled customers on its postpaid plans—from as low as MYR28 monthly for 6GB of data.

This isn’t something new though—Digi has made available all its plans available to Persons with Disabilities (PWD) customers since 2012. Any customer with a valid OKU card can enjoy a lifetime MYR10 discount on any Digi Postpaid plan.

To enjoy this lifetime offer, customers need only to sign-up at any Digi Store with their original national identity card (NRIC) and original OKU card. Third party registrations by family member or legal guardians are also possible—simply present the original NRIC or birth certificate and original OKU card, and proof of legal guardianship of the person registering.

In addition to enabling easy access to connectivity, the yellow telco also continues to work on tailoring its services to a wide range of customers at all its touchpoints and community programmes.

At Digi Stores, there are express lanes and geek bar support prioritised for PWDs, seniors and pregnant women.

That aside, Digi actively supports other social inclusion efforts through its involvement in the Sekolah Dalam Hospital (SDH) programme in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MOE), Ministry of Health (MOH) and Yayasan Nurul Yaqeeen since 2018.

The company has also funded the development of a Malaysian Sign Language (MSL) mobile app called EDDY to bridge the communication gap for persons with hearing and speech disabilities.
