Wow! Sounds like a good deal because I donít use much- mainly for Google Maps, traffic cameras, check prices of certain items online thatís all. I go into JB about once a month, so I think 10GB will last me a long time. So a one time payment of RM60 for 28 months, itís 👍

Can I check what do you mean by ďbank systemĒ?
This is briefly how the bank system works. To use the data, you need to withdraw the data from the bank.

So you can withdraw min 500MB data (valid for 30 days) or 1G/2G/5G/10G depending on your data usage. There is also an option for 2GB valid for 7 days.

The withdrawn data will expire on the 30th day. So if you withdraw 1GB but use only 700MB, the remaining data is forfeited.

If you dun use much data, then 500MB sounds like enough for each trip. 10GB can use for 20 trips.

Is there like a simcard with long validity that charges per 100MB wan? 500MB/30 days like OneXOX abit overkill for me. Last time I used TRON but they closed.

I see. Thanks for clarification! Appreciate it!

And one last thing- you can do all these withdrawals, top ups etc from their app right?

How’s the app like? I read the reviews on Apple App Store, it was quite bad.

Yes, pretty unreliable. That’s why I’m considering a switch. Even though I still have RM80 credit inside.

AFAIK, it's the least- liked among their top 4 telcos... Attractive rates but reception seems to be lacking. I personally gave up quite a while already.

DiGi Starter SIM Packs with Additional Internet Passes

Just sharing something that I've noticed with the above-mentioned, from 2 recent experiences. (There may be more types from other dealers.)

The (compulsory) additional Internet pass purchase that comes with some of those DiGi Prepaid Live starter packs, you can check on what type (it's not always the same) yours is, and if you've to unsubscribe from auto-renewal before the month is up.

Example 1:
RM40 starter pack that comes with 5GB High-Speed Internet + biGBonus 30GB (1GB every day from 1pm-7pm)

If you see from this link here, you'll see that this's auto-renewable.

Example 2:
RM23 starter pack that comes with (Valid for 30 days) 2GB + Unlimited Social

I checked the app and came to the conclusion that this's the Internet Cili Padi XL Passes with More Internet, More Social Media, More Validity. And if you look at the FAQ, you'll see that it'll not auto-renew.
