Malaysian telecommunications provider, CelcomDigi, is set to launch a novel range of 5G postpaid plans from December 1. These innovative offerings provide access to both 4G and 5G networks, a unique feature in the current market. To safeguard customer experience and prevent misuse, a speed cap will be applied to 5G usage across all offerings, excluding the highest-tier plan. This decision is reflective of customer usage patterns indicating that the allocated speeds are sufficient for mobile use.
Details of the New 5G Postpaid Plans
The newly introduced plans, Postpaid 5G 80 and 5G 100, feature 90GB and 150GB data caps respectively, while the other tiers, Postpaid 5G 120, 5G 140, 5G 160, and 5G 260, come with no data cap. Users can enjoy unlimited calls and a RM10 monthly rebate on a 24-month contract for existing customers. A complimentary 300Mbps home fibre plan is also on offer, with the duration varying based on the plan chosen. Family lines can also be added to all plans.
Out with the Old, In with the New
These new plans will replace the existing ones from both Celcom and Digi, which were previously priced at RM80 and above. This move signifies a shift in strategy, focusing on offering consumers more value and flexibility in their choices.
