Recently DiGi was become very tricky. Why I say so ? Because at the beginning on DiGi advertisement on newspaper or on their website front page, their offers and rates are cheapest among all telcos. However, after certain period, they are changing their plan terms and conditions silently and I guarantee you couldn’t found it on their advertisement or on their website front page.
If you got paid attention and monitored their website specific page for that particular plan, for example DG Smart Plan page and look carefully to their terms and condition, you will suddenly saw that they changed the terms and condition very silently.
Is that a trick or a cheat ?
Another obvious example is their Easy Prepaid Plan, first of all they offer free 3 buddy calls with 60 hours monthly limit and 3 friends and family (only DiGi numbers), then gradually only from 12am to 6pm daily and no more 3 friends and family.
One more example is their Facebook Zero, firstly is free to use 24 hours, then now how ? You know if you’re DiGi facebook zero user.
Back to the plan, do you think you can browse any internet with just 5kbps speed ? If you’re internet heavy user and surely exceed limit, then I DO NOT recommend you to take any DG Smart Plan package.
