DiGi launches BEYOND prepaid service

Innovative prepaid service from DiGi set to power intuitive and personalised mobile experience for customers

Kuala Lumpur, 22 September 2003 - DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd today launched its intelligent Beyond Prepaid service that takes mobile prepaid in Malaysia to a new level with its innovative automatic adjusting rates feature.

This feature extends prepaid call charges beyond existing parameters. It means that calls automatically get cheaper the more you talk. There is no need to review a range of tariff plans and select one that suits your usage. The rate per minute reduces with the amount of calls the user makes.

"This represents another first for DiGi and for Malaysia," said Mr. Tore Johnsen, Chief Operating Officer. "What is unique about this dynamic tariff plan is that it goes beyond customers' expectations by doing the thinking for them, taking away the hassle and inconvenience of having to work out what plans suits them best.

"It offers one of the lowest per minute rate as usage increases, an affordable call rate as low as 40 sen per minute. In addition, customers can make outstation calls, all day long at only RM1.20 per call," he added.

DiGi has invested considerable effort in designing a prepaid service that meets the consumer demand for convenience, ease-of-use and affordability to complement the ever-changing, fast-paced lifestyle of Malaysia's mobile prepaid customers who use the mobile phone a lot.

DiGi's new prepaid service, Beyond Prepaid will be available from September 23 for all existing and new prepaid subscribers. It is the most affordable prepaid SIM pack at RM38 and comes pre-loaded with RM20 worth of talk time and packed with a host of innovative features. These include automatic international roaming, MMS, faster internet connection via DiGi's GPRS network, call waiting, call divert and multi-party conferencing.

Recently DiGi introduced its Friends and Family rate of 40 sen per minute nationwide all day long to any six DiGi numbers they frequently call. Its SMS rate is currently the lowest at 15 sen per message to any mobile phone in Malaysia or overseas.

Existing customers can change to Beyond for free by simply calling 016-2211800 and selecting the change call plan option in the IVR menu.

"We continue to place our customers at the centre of everything we do, and are set to roll out a series of innovative mobile communications services and product enhancements that will help to simplify and enrich their lives," added Mr. Johnsen.
