DiGi Telecommunications [DiGi] has introduced new portable wireless routers known as MobiFi and refreshed its broadband plans to cater to the needs of increasingly mobile Malaysians.

MobiFi allows users to have up to 10 different Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously connected to the internet, said Praveen Rajan, DiGi's head of products - Internet & Services.

More Malaysians own multiple Wi-Fi capable devices, be it for their own usage or for their loved ones to access the internet. However, many of these devices are not connected to the Internet especially when on the go, said Rajan. "MobiFi is an alternative way for customers to enjoy DiGi's consistent Internet experience across many Wi-Fi devices with just a single subscription."

"This latest product offering together with DiGi's newly refreshed mobile broadband plans is in line with our mission to bring affordable Mobile Internet to more people across Malaysia," he said.

Rajan said that there are two new models of MobiFi devices to choose from depending on the customers' needs and requirements - a 3G MobiFi from as low as RM7 [Us$2.14] per month or a 4G LTE MobiFi at RM18 [Us$5.60] per month. Both models come with a built-in battery, wall socket charger and an in-car charger giving the best flexibility for on-the-go usage.

The three new broadband plans are available either to be bundled with the MobiFi device or as a SIM-only subscription:

  • Broadband 25 - offers 1GB of data at only RM25 [Us$7.64] per month, making it the most affordable broadband plan available in the market.
  • Broadband 45 - offers 2GB of data at RM45 [US$13.75] per month.
  • Broadband 65 - offers 8GB of data at RM65 [Us$19.86] per month (4GB [24 hours] + 4GB [2am - 8am])

Customers can also easily stay connected after exceeding the monthly quota as top-ups are available from as low as RM1 [US$0.31]. Existing DG Postpaid subscribers will get a RM5 [US$1.53] discount when they sign up for any of the broadband plans, said Rajan.
