Digi is mad to offer unlimited internet for 8 ringgit a day.
I believe this is basic internet @64kbps, and there's actually a FUP limit if you check their T&C.

Edit: And it's not new; there's a RM3 one for some versions. Placed there to prevent high PPU charges.

I believe that's this one and it's been given a speed boost. Going to speed test the 8 ringgit unlimited plan next trip up north. The basic internet comes into play only if no internet plan.

if you can wait till you reach kl, get a digi card from any convenience store for rm8. preinstall the app before you leave. new card gives you 300mb free. use the credit balance to buy 300mb for rm1.
Iím heading to genting this weekend for a short trip, I suppose I can find this SIM card at genting too?

i haven't been to genting for a long time so i can't be sure. also, there have been reports of poor reception for digi when indoors in genting, especially inside the casino.

All networks don't do well in Genting generally but the newly renovated theme park and premium outlets should have best signal now. alternatively, the Mary Brown Wifi has been a consistent godsend if in need of fast wifi for the price of a friend chicken or two. password on the receipt.

According to their website - https://www.rwgenting.com/attractions/sky-avenue/ - the 3 main telcos have dealers there.

Not seen a dealer shop for OneXOX there so far.

Alternative will be to check the Travel Bazaar here. Had a glance the other day and found 2 dealer posts, dated just last month.

I've personally not dealt with any of the dealers who've posted lately, so can't say for sure. A couple of years back, the dealer I dealt with only needed the particulars, don't remember having given him any copy. But then again, I did read that OneXOX requires their dealers to see prove of identity... that might have been posted by a dealer himself. Again, not sure about it either.

If you're uncomfortable and only want to deal with someone at a OneXOX booth/shop, the only one that a member here has posted about was in Giant Plentong. There's only one sighting so don't know if it's still there.

Oic. So there is a risk.

Does letting the dealer shops photocopy our passport sound like a risk to you? This is a requirement by their authorities (as it is ours), that much I know.

It's similar to how we used to leave our IC with bicycle rental booths, and about how some people say going to JB is risky.

I'm not in a position to comment much for you; just do what you feel comfortable with.
