Digi Broadband review

Digi had the poorest coverage at my area long time ago. Celcom is the best, follow by Maxis. Digi Postpaid Infinite catches my eyes with unlimited data usage on top of life time free tethering. Yes, you get unlimited calls and 1,000 SMS too. So I took the chance to test Digi Broadband at my area again. How does Digi Broadband perform? Let’s find out…

Wow… I am impressed. Digi increased their 4G LTE coverage a lot lately. Yes, I am getting full bar now. Maxis does well too. Only Celcom stuck there with no improvement at all. Err… Anyway, back to Digi. If you like to try out Digi high speed Internet at your area too, just get yourself a Digi Prepaid BEST SIM card like I did.

Coverage is the most important factor here. Without full coverage, you can’t get decent speed. Too many users at your area is another factor that will affect the Internet performance. Yup, 35Mbps is the best download speed that I can get. 16Mbps for upload. Ping is important for gamers. Make sure it is as low as possible. I have 4G LTE-A device but Digi does not have LTE-A coverage at my area. Therefore, this is the best result that I can get so far. You will get different results at different places. So do check at the places that you use Internet frequently.

Consistency is another factor to look at as well. You don’t want a broadband that work at certain hours only and failed for the rest of the day, right? The lowest download that I get for download is 10Mbps. Maybe that’s during peak hours. Luckily, it lasts for a while only. Then back to the usual minimum 20Mbps. That’s more than enough for a Streamyx 8Mbps user like me. However, there is only one thing that concern me right now.

Stability! I am facing YouTube buffering issue while doing this Digi broadband review. Yup, all YouTube videos can’t playback properly while Internet surfing and files downloading are working just fine. Just hang there for no reason even in 720p. Streamyx is better in stability where 1080p video is being playback as it should. Hopefully, this is a short term issue, else I can say goodbye to Digi as well.
