Knowing this, telcos in Malaysia have each come up with their own additional or free data plan for their users.
It can be hard for those who depend on mobile data to stream their favourite movies or series during the Movement Control Order (MCO).
Digi gives its Postpaid users free 1GB data from 8am to 6pm daily. Prepaid users get the same amount of free data, but on a weekly basis. Digi Business customers, meanwhile, will get 2GB additional data added to their current existing quota.
