Please refer to the link for more information - DiGi FAQs on the 6% Service Tax

1. How much do customers have to pay for a new Prepaid starter pack after 1 Sept 2018?
From 1 Sept 2018, Digi customers pay the published rate of RM8.00 that is printed on the SIM packs, which is inclusive of 6% Service Tax. At the same time, customers receive a revised preloaded credit of RM5.00.


2. Before 1 Sept 2018, I enjoyed 0% GST rebate upon reload. Will I get rebates if I reload after 1 Sept 2018?
When you activate your reload after 1 Sept 2018, the airtime value received will be after the 6% Service Tax has been deducted upon successful reload. Example, for a RM10 reload, you would receive RM9.43 airtime with RM0.57 deducted for Service Tax.
AFAIK,

SST (Sales & Service Tax) is applicable to (all) M'sia telcos from 1st Sep 2018, not just Digi.

Some links that discuss SST on M'sia prepaid:
https://www.soyacincau.com/2018/08/3...ad-get-rm9-43/
https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/4648591/all

To cushion the effect of SST, some M'sia telcos are throwing in certain freebies when you reload/top up your M'sia prepaid.

E.g. Digi gives FREE 100MB data -- only valid for 24hrs -- when you reload RM10 to your Digi prepaid, but you need to dial *888*1# (after you reload) on your Digi prepaid to redeem.

For more info on the Digi FREE data given when you reload/top up your Digi prepaid, see HERE:
