Celcom and Digi Extend Free 5G Access Until End of May

Digi 5G

Celcom and Digi users are now able to utilize 5G connectivity without additional charges until 31 May 2023. Prior to this, both telcos which have since merged into a single corporate entity called CelcomDigi said that the free access would expire on 30 April.

While Celcom and Digi did not provide a detailed explanation in regards to the decision, they have noted in their joint announcement today that this move goes hand in hand with their aspiration to push for 5G adoption in the country. This extension applies to all postpaid and prepaid plans that are eligible for 5G access.
