If you are used to Postpaid convention and prefer Postpaid while keeping your spending low. Can port to CelcomDigi kuning first. Then go to a phone shop not official Celcom or Digi store and change to CelcomDigi Postpaid 30XV. It has 20GB and Unlimited call but sort of not being advertised publicly.

It worth less than the CelcomDigi Kuning RM25 plan but more convenient if you prefer Postpaid and easier to track your spending let's say for tax purposes

I see.. so the Celcom Digi Edisi Kuning internet speed will be capped at 100mbps.. but i think if capped to 100mbps, its too slow for 5G..

Wow, never thought of this, that's like not even 4G, right?

But 100mbps should be enough for most people right? Unless they download big files?

Ya.. that why i said 100mbps for 5G, its too slow because 5G can hit up to 1GBps.. so if Celcomdigi capped the internet speed to 100mbps, then how to utilise the 5G..

Just like buying bmw car with speed can go up to 250kmj, but then realize it got cut off speed at 140kmj only.. better I stick with my current myvi car.. 140kmj can hit, 200kmj also can hit..

hmm, so why they market 5G so much in these plans?

Maybe because new phones all cannot support 4G?

I believe forced by government. Gov wanted so much for 5g user to increase.

I have noticed that some areas have strong 5G signal but weak 4G. Like my mom's place in the middle of Penang island, I get 2 bars of 4G, but full 4 bars of 5G.

Maybe telcos are pushing 5G because of a govt directive, and maybe because they partly own DNB, and possibly due to 5G network expansion being currently more aggressive than 4G.

Not really. 4g are build by individual telcos. These individual telcos prioritise profit, so they only build infra in places where there is potential. If one telco already build 4g in that area, others will not prioritise the same area to avoid duplication. Hence some places telco x has a good 4g, telco y has bad reception.
As for 5g, DNB builds it and all telcos are force to use the same infra.

I’m just happy that there is full 5G coverage at my mom’s place now. She has no wired broadband at home so with 5G available in excess of 500mbps, she can comfortably use Yes 5G prepaid (rm30).

Yes, that current 5g speed is more than enough for many.

DNB is an entity wholly owned by MOF and mandated by gov to be the single neutral party to deploy 5G nationwide.

I remember reading that our telcos collectively now own 65% of DNB.

Wow, so they simply deploy 5G infras all over Malaysia using tax money ka?

But who decide where get 5G first and last? Gomen experts? Population density?

Sabah Sarawak and Wilayah too?

Yes, nationwide including Sabah Sarawak. How they decide, the funding etc you can try to google.
