DiGi organized a blogger gathering yesterday, in accordance to the launched of their broadband service. The gathering was held at Good Evening Bangkok at 1-Utama Shopping Mall.
For those of you who aren’t aware of the restaurant situated at one lonely corner of 1-Utama, this is what Good Evening Bangkok looks like.
The bloggers waiting for the event to begin.
Our evening was very simple, a brief introduction from DiGi’s broadband team, proceeded by a short introductory session of the attending bloggers.
Dinner was then served, and after that was the introduction of DiGi’s new Internet service. The session ended with a Q&A session and a game where the winner was rewarded a HP Notebook. ( Too bad I’m not the winner la. I usually no luck to win these things. 🙁 )
DiGi’s broadband is served on a 14.4Mbps HSPA network. The key highlight of DiGi’s broadband service would be FAST and AFFORDABLE.
Take a look at their packages (taken from their website )
And the modems.
From what I know, DiGi is now offering the USB modems at half price from 19th to 22nd March. Another promotion is where the purchase of HP Notebooks (selected models) also entitle one to the rebates for the broadband subscription.
And here’s what the USB Device look like.
Those of you who would like to check out the promotions and try out the broadband service, you could pay a visit to their roadshow at the New Wing of 1-Utama.
Have I tested it? Sadly no, it’s not that I didn’t want to. It’s just that I was unlucky that they were facing technical difficulties when I paid a visit to the roadshow, I hopped around so many of the show units but none of them seem to be connected to the Internet. Nevertheless others who have tested the DiGi broadband did say that it was fast.
I for one am more than delighted to hear that DiGi’s broadband service comes with mobility! Yes, I checked out their competitor and I thought they seem to be rather nonsensical as they’re offering wireless without mobility (damn huge modem) which I personally think it’s rather pointless, other than the idea of escaping Streamyx’ roller-coaster-style cable connection.
Here, I end my report and I hope you guys could drop by and check out the DiGi broadband yourself, come back and let us know what you think about it. 🙂
*I’ll compile the list of bloggers who attended and update this article a bit later.*
