SHAH ALAM, 4 March 2013 - In conjunction with its Internet For All ambition, DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd ("DiGi") has enjoyed a strong take-up rate of DG SmartPlans and bundled smart devices in 2012 due to high demand for a better mobile Internet experience. To enable a richer mobile experience with relevant services that are desired by customers, DiGi is working with global Internet players like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and Opera Software to create new DG SmartPlans with a better Internet experience offered at best value.

They would be able to share and connect with loved ones and their communities on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp with a higher Internet quota up to 4GB as well as unlimited surfing via Opera Mini browser.

DiGi is stepping up to offer service plans that are relevant and supportive of this growing usage trend. We are confident we can drive data traffic even more with our refreshed product positioning, and grow our customer base of smartphone users, which currently stands at over 26%.
