As a Unifi Fibre 30Mbps subscriber, I can’t avoid but have been wondering how Digi Fibre 90 is better than Unifi Fibre 30Mbps. If you want to find out, continue reading this article. Here’s my review of Digi Fibre 90 and some comparison to Unifi Fibre 30Mbps.
For a start, Digi Fibre 90 offers unlimited internet with 50Mbps download speed compared to Unifi Fibre which offers 30Mbps download speed with almost the same price which is RM89/month. With an extra RM1 per month, you can get additional 20Mbps faster with Digi Fibre.
Digi Fibre 90 plan
|Modem & WiFi 6 router||Free|
Here’s the basic plan that you should know. There are also some limited-time discounts and monthly rebates for the first 24 months but I didn’t include them in the table above. You can find out the detail on their website here.
Download and upload speed
As I mentioned earlier, Digi Fibre 90 has a big advantage over Unifi Fibre 30Mbps with almost similar monthly commitments where Digi offer 20Mbps higher download speed.
For the upload speed, Digi offers up to 20Mbps while Unifi only up to 10Mbps. The difference is almost double. So, the winner clearly goes to Digi Fibre 90.
Wifi 6 capable router
Another interesting point is Digi Fibre offers a free modem and Wifi 6 router which is the latest model. What is this Wifi 6? Here’s some info for your reference:
|Generation/IEEE Standard||Frequency||Maximum Linkrate|
|Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax)||2.4/5 GHz||600–9608 Mbit/s|
|Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)||5 GHz||433–6933 Mbit/s|
|Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n)||2.4/5 GHz||72–600 Mbit/s|
Basically, Wifi 6 is 250% faster than Wifi 5, provided your devices or computer support Wifi 6. Though Wifi 6 is backwards compatible with the older 802.11ac (Wifi 5), you’ll need a Wifi 6 capable device to take full advantage of Wifi 6 new protocol.
All Digi Fibre plan come with a Zyxel EX3300-T0 router, and it comes with a 1-year warranty. Digi Fibre also supports these routers below if you preferred to use your own routers at home:
- ZTE ZXHN H198A
- Huawei DN8245X6
Honestly, I plan to terminate my Unifi after the contract end, probably by end of this year if I’m not mistaken and change to Digi Home Fibre. As of now, I don’t see any other plan that can beat Digi Fibre 90 (at least at my home area).
