Goh Thean Eu shares six key takeaways from Digi’s Q1 2016 results, and comes up with a surprise or two.
Digi has unveiled two new broadband plans: Broadband 145 and Broadband 185, which offer customers 50GB and 100GB of data quota respectively.
A deeper look into how Malaysia’s Big Three mobile operators performed in 2015 shows that 2016 is going to be another interesting year for the industry, writes Goh Thean Eu.
Maxis reported a 38% jump in Q4 net profit, driven mainly by its growing prepaid and postpaid business even while those segments saw a decline in subscribers.
Digi has established a 4G LTE network tower in Setia Alam in the state of Selangor, part of the telco’s #DigiWeWant4G Twitter campaign.
Malaysia’s 4G war of words heats with Maxis CEO Morten Lundal claiming that Maxis has both the widest and highest quality 4G coverage in the country.
Digi responded to Maxis’ callout to discuss 4G LTE claims by calling it a ‘social media gimmick,’ saying that its own main objective is to give consistent network coverage to its subscribers.
Digi started field tests on VoLTE, saying that the technology not only allows higher-fidelity voice calls, but will also allow customers to simultaneously surf the Web, download or stream content from the Internet at 4G LTE speeds while engaged on a voice call.
Digi.Com Bhd reported third quarter 2015 revenue had dropped to RM1.67 billion from RM1.76 billion in the corresponding period last year, although Internet revenue grew 18% year-on-year and 4.5% quarter-on-quarter.
