Stay Connected in Overseas with DiGi Roaming

I always like to travel to places and sometimes it’s out of Malaysia. When I am out of the country, the thing that I hated the most is not being able to keep in touch with my family and friends back home. Also, I like to keep myself updated through my social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.



Earlier this year when I was visiting Singapore with a bunch of bloggers for a MMA submit, I had activated the international roaming and Internet Roaming for just RM36 a day from DiGi. With that, I was able to post up the photo above on my Instagram even when there’s no FREE WiFi service.




It was a wise decision I made so that we won’t be shock when we travel and data roam overseas that can cause high charges on our phone bill. We get to enjoy unlimited roaming via our mobile phone, laptop and even tablet with a daily max cap from as low as RM32/day by roaming with 41 operators worldwide.

Data usage of 3MB and above will be charged at a flat rate (daily max cap) of RM32/RM36/RM56 per day.

Data usage less than 3MB will be charged at:
• RM10.66/MB with 10kb charging block for RM32/day
• RM12/MB with 10kb charging block for RM36/day
• RM18.66/MB with 10kb charging block for RM56/day

 

You can check the roaming rates on the country as the picture above.

To demonstrate how much 1MB data is used based on consumer’s behaviour, here’s a snapshot:
• Based on an average picture size of 60KB, user can upload about 15 pictures with 1MB
• Based on about 1KB per message, about 1000 messages (without attachment) can be sent/received via Whatsapp for 1MB

If we love to continuously update our Facebook status, tweet on Twitter or upload our beautiful travel pictures on Instagram, we should activate the Internet roaming hence won’t be charged more than the daily max cap. Even if they are not a heavy data user, they will be charged based on ‘Pay As You Use’ method, which means if they only use up to 1MB of data, they will be charged according to the charging block, ie. RM10.66/MB (depending on which country they are in lah…)

 

In conclusion, traveling abroad with unlimited internet not only let you stay in touch with your family and friends back home but you won’t get lost easily when there’s Google Maps or Waze mobile apps to help you out anytime and anywhere.
