The launch of DiGi 4G LTE in KK

DiGi Telecommunication had its 4G LTE launch in Kota Kinabalu on last Friday, November 28th, which took place at Suria Sabah shopping mall. So I was invited as a blogger to attend the event.

Around the venue, visitors could enjoy free WiFi, watch gaming and video streaming demos, try on latest mobile phones, test Internet speed and check out latest promotions and packages offered by DiGi. There was even a charging station for different ports of mobile gadgets! Good thing they did not put a seat near that station. Lol.

Spot Tom here. Special thanks to him for inviting me, hehe.

VVIPs present at the event included Y.Bhg. Datuk Bruno VunPermanent Secretary, Ministry of Resource Development and Information Technology. K Juslly, Director of SKMM Sabah and FT Labuan, Christian Thrane, DiGi's Chief Marketing Officer, Loh Keh Jiat, DiGi's Chief Sales Officer and Prasanna Rao, DiGi's Acting Head of Sabah Region.

Speech by Y.Bhg Datuk Bruno Vun.
Facetiming / video-calling with Lars-Ake Norling, DiGi CEO all the way from Sweden!

With the new 4G (Fourth generation mobile telecommunications technology) LTE (Long Term Evolution) by DiGi, you can enjoy faster wireless data; up to 10x faster than before, of a minimum 1Mbps. So, you can get faster HD video streaming, sharing on social media and downloads. No more staring blankly at that..moving, round thingy. DiGi's 4G LTE services are currently available at Kota Kinabalu, Klang Valley, Kampar, Johor Bahru and Kuching. By the end of this year, DiGi LTE coverage in Kota Kinabalu will reach 84%, and will expand to Tawau and Labuan in Sabah, and Kuching and Miri in Sarawak. So, yay for us, East Malaysians!

If you are an existing DiGi Postpaid customer, do upgrade your sim card to USIM card to enjoy 4G LTE. YOU KNOW YOU NEED IT. I am a long-time customer of DiGi and I am truly excited of this upgrade. I upgraded to USIM card right after the launch event (since it's free during the three-day roadshow). I was impressed that within 5 minutes, the USIM card can be used. I was like, "Wow, immediate effect!" So, I surfed the Internet via 4G connection like a happy child on his/her new toys up until now.

During the event, I also got the chance to meet other Sabahan bloggers such as Eudora, AnnieMing and others!
