Hi Folks,
Im pretty sure this topic has been debated before. But does any celcom users noticed a significant drop of network speed ever since the 'dumb' marriage of Celcom & Digi? Im seeing an obvious drop of speed unlike before. As a 20+ years of faithful celcom subscriber was thinking to move away to other provider. Just wanna get some opinion.. anyone else face similar drop of speed?

Not related, i noticed after 5G implemented, Maxis/ Hotlink always no data/ no line.

Some say due to discontinuation of 3G, causing 4G congestion, while not many willing to pay extra for 5G

Network integration is not an overnight process, it may take two years to complete. Some users see improvement already, others have painful experience. Can check the network status in your area using this page:

Even Digi users have been reporting bad experience after the merger. We shall see the performance after they have completed network integration in 2 years time.

CelcomDigi returns part of spectrum to MCMC while subs about double after merger so shall expect congestion happening … not sure is related to this.

By right if users on 5G wont suffer poor speed.

Dropping to E is not expected, even congest wont go E.

Always have a secondary backup SIM 2 running...

Preferred combo :
1) CD + M (highly recommended), or
2) CD + U, or
3) CD + P1, or
4) CD + Y

IMHO, the better combo is CD + U. Tried all combos before. This works for me in terms of value for money.

When 2 major telco merge, some towers will be decom or re-com to save cost on infra and spectrum. Otherwise, who's gonna pay for the merger in the middle/long term. I have never seen any merger, their products/services becomes more affordable or value for money.

Yes, am also experiencing bad/lousy network connectivity/data speed after CD merger. 4G seems to be heavily congested on CD network. Not surprising. Used to be good speeds (on D) before merger. Nowadays, much lower speed/quality network.

U-prepaid does not have "Always Active" plan... Hotlink Panta* reload RM10 gets 30 days validity. Use this RM10 reload to buy 5GB/year quota as backup...Eveyrtime reload RM10, can use as e-Wallet to buy vouchers in the app...
