YES + TPG Launch VoLTE Roaming In Southeast Asia!

YES and TPG today announced that they are the first telecommunications providers in Southeast Asia to introduce VoLTE Roaming!

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about the YES and TPG partnership to introduce VoLTE Roaming in SEA!


YES + TPG Launch VoLTE Roaming In Southeast Asia!

The YES and TPG VoLTE Roaming solution is the first in Southeast Asia, and another milestone for YES, who was also the first in Malaysia to deliver VoLTE nationwide in June 2016.

As the 4th national telecommunications operator in Singapore, TPG is eager to break-out ahead of the competition. They have thus become the first in Southeast Asia to launch outbound VoLTE roaming.

VoLTE roaming will ensure high definition (HD) quality voice services, as well as other benefits like faster call connections, longer battery life and enhanced security.


YES To Accept Inbound TPG VoLTE Roaming Traffic

With the sole all-IP, all-4G LTE network in Malaysia, YES is a natural partner for TPG to receive inbound VoLTE traffic from TPG.

With this announcement, TPG subscribers in Singapore will enjoy VoLTE roaming in Malaysia, and YES subscribers in Malaysia will enjoy VoLTE roaming in Singapore.

On top of that, TPG Acting CEO Richard Tan announced that many TPG subscribers will enjoy FREE unlimited data roaming in Malaysia on the YES network during the promotion period.

The Digi Freedom to Internet Offers Explained!

Digi just launched Digi Freedom to Internet, offering more value, convenience and exclusive services. But there are not one, or two, but FOUR Digi Freedom propositions. Confused? We summarise the new Digi Freedom to Internet offers, so you know what exactly they mean for you!


The Digi Freedom to Internet Offers

First, let us remind you that freedom is NOT free – Digi is not giving away anything free. What they’re offering is a clearer, easier way to manage your costs while getting the services you want at a lower cost.

In this video, Digi’s Head of Digital Product & Services, Prashant Pathmanaban, and Benjamin Tan, Digi’s Head of Postpaid, gives an in-depth presentation of the Digi Freedom to Internet offers. There is even a hilarious short video starring pindaPanda!

Digi Freedom to Internet consists of four “Freedom propositions” – Music Freedom, Video Freedom, Gaming Freedom and Roaming Freedom.

Music Freedom

All Digi Postpaid and Prepaid customers, who have been with the company for at least six months, will receive an upgrade of their Music Freedom quota – from 1 GB to 5 GB. This is the music streaming quota monthly for music streaming services such as Spotify, Joox and Smule.

Video Freedom

[adrotate group=”2″]

For only RM 5 per month, Digi customers can buy 5 GB of video streaming quota to get access to and watch premium TV series and movies on Viu. Digi will offer launch a similar offer for iflix and Tonton very soon.

Gaming Freedom

Digi Postpaid and Prepaid customers can now purchase in-game items for their favourite Steam and Garena game titles, such as League of Legends, Dota 2, Counter-Strike and FIFA, without debit or credit cards. With Gaming Freedom, they can simply choose to pay through their Digi accounts.

Digi will also offer exclusive gaming offers like unique collectible top-up cards, in-game items, as well as access to top gaming events. Their first gaming offer – a series of League of Legends collectible top-up cards will be offered for sale beginning 1st July 2017.

Roaming Freedom

Customers on the Digi Postpaid 110 plan or better will enjoy free roaming in 8 countries – China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar and Brunei. Customers on the Digi Postpaid 80 plan will just pay a small RM 10 fee to enjoy the same benefit.

Digi will also offer Internet passes from only RM 5 per day, and a 3-day combo pass (2 GB Internet + 30 minutes of calls) for RM 25 per day.
