KUALA LUMPUR: DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd has added 10 new roaming outlets â€“ Macau, Pakistan, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Spain and Brazil â€“ to the current list of networks.
In a statement today, DiGi said the TravelSure Unlimited Roaming service would allow customers to stay connected with the Internet roaming rates in over 40 countries worldwide.
“In all these countries, customers can now freely surf, e-mail, Facebook, use location services and download applications on any smartphone and tablet, just as they would at home â€“ worry-free,” it said.
Its chief marketing officer, Albern Murty, said the service meant that the customer’s overseas data charges would be capped at a fixed per-day rate for as low as RM36 on selected networks in over 40 countries.
“This means no bill shocks and our customers can stay connected on social media, e-mails and their favourite websites with no worries,” he said.
Meanwhile, DiGi’s senior management, including the CEO and chief marketing officer, has been made ambassadors of its international roaming services from Aug 1.
“We always like to do things a little differently. Every DiGi employee is a brand ambassador and the same goes for the senior management team.
“As ambassadors, we will use the opportunity to engage with customers whenever we ourselves travel, either on business or leisure,” it said.
DiGi said this was in line with its ongoing campaign, â€śDon’t Worry. Roam DiGiâ€ť to encourage more customers to use the Internet and roam worry-fee.
“At DiGi, our mission to provide ‘Internet For All’ doesn’t just mean enjoying worry-free Internet in Malaysia. It also extends to millions of smartphone-loving Malaysians who are travelling abroad more frequently for business and leisure,” it said.
