Special Offer: Get affordable RM25 per month Celcom or Maxis Broadband SKMM. First month free but still can enjoy unlimited internet usage.
Digi Prepaid Internet users have grown up since it first start. The price and features of the prepaid internet is so good for a normal internet user. Do not want to lose to Digi, now Celcom has taken the initiative to release their version of prepaid internet called Instanet. Instanet is still new and I haven try it yet thus I cannot give any practical results on Instanet.
If you do not have any broadband or prepaid internet yet, you can buy Instanet at Celcom Blue Cube or Celcom authorized dealers. Instanet comes with three plans that is:
- Instanet Daily – RM 5 per day (500 MB usage quota)
- Instanet Weekly – RM 18 per week (1GB usage quota)
- Instanet Monthly – RM 50 per month (1.5GB usage quota)
For the three packages, all of them have up to 512 kbps download speed. Since the download for three of them is similar, that is not of our concern in choosing the best package for Instanet. If you really want to use Instanet, usage quota and the monthly price is the one that you should check. Let say that you use Instanet Daily for the whole month, that will make RM 130 and you will get 2GB monthly quota. If you use the Instanet weekly for the whole month, that will make RM 72 but you will get 4 GB usage quota for the whole month. Compared to Instanet Monthly, you can have better usage quota using Instanet Weekly for a month. However you still need to compensate for the additional RM22. So you do you think it’s worth? That’s up to you.
Digi prepaid internet vs Instanet
Comparing Instanet and Digi Prepaid Internet are not so difficult as I can see clear distinction between those two. For Digi prepaid internet that is activated after March 2011, you can get access to the internet at RM10 for 2 days. That means RM5 per day. Although Digi prepaid internet does not have daily plan, you will receive 3 GB monthly quota unlike Instanet which capped daily plan at 500 MB daily quota. Using Digi, you can get RM2 per day internet fee if you top up the SIM card with RM50. Instanet give you the same price here but you need to remember that you will only have 1.5 GB monthly quota instead of Digi which give 3 GB monthly usage quota.
For the final words, go for Digi if you want more usage quota but choose Instanet if you need speed. Instanet provides up 512 kbps download speed while Digi prepaid internet gives 384 kbps. Do not forget that faster speed means that your usage quota tend to be finish in a short time. For Instanet, your speed will be throttled to 64 kbps. That is equivalence to 8 KB/s download speed. Oh, just imagine how you are going to watch YouTube at such speed.
