SMART Communications Inc. (Smart) Smart is now bundling its prepaid call and text offers with free Internet access as part of efforts to further propel mobile Internet usage among its subscribers.
Under this promo, Smart Prepaid subscribers who top up and subscribe to various call and text offers will also get to enjoy up to 30MB worth of free data per day–without any need to sign up or register.
The new offer comes on the heels of Smart’s successful Free Internet promo, which ended on February 28, and the 63 percent increase in its mobile data revenues to P8.1 billion in 2014, a big jump from P5 billion in 2013.
“With the successful run of our Smart Free Internet offer, many of our subscribers were able to experience real-life benefits of staying connected to mobile Internet–from getting in touch with their loved ones, accessing news and information, to enjoying the wealth of entertaining content available online,” said Charles A. Lim, executive vice president and head of the wireless consumer business of Smart.
“This new offer will enable us to further pursue our Internet for All campaign and encourage more people to stay connected,” Lim added.
Smart Prepaid subscribers can stay connected via call, text and surf with All Text 20 Plus, which now offers a total of 45MB of surfing, along with unlimited text to all networks, 20 minutes of calls to Smart, Sun and TNT, all valid for one day.
Subscribers can also call, text and surf more with Unli Call and Text 25, which has also been enhanced to offer a total of 45MB of surfing, along with unlimited calls to Smart and TNT, unlimited text to Smart, Sun and TNT, and 50 texts to other networks, all valid for one day.
Smart said for even greater value for money, subscribers can enjoy Unli Call and Text 25, which now comes with a total of 140MB of surfing, along with unlimited calls to Smart, TNT and Sun, unlimited text to all networks, valid for three days.
Other top promos will also get a boost of additional 30MB, and subscribers can avail of all these promos by simply dialing *121# – Smart’s easy access number for all the latest promos and services.
With free 30MB on top of their subscriptions, users can now enjoy a wider range of online activities, like watching more videos on YouTube, Vimeo, or Daily Motion, browsing through and post on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts; visiting informative websites and updating their own blogs, or searching on Google and Wikipedia.
They can also use navigation tools like Waze and Google Maps, book a cab or limo service via Easy Taxi and Uber, or use traffic info sites such as the MMDA’s and InterAksyon’s. They can also send and receive emails, listen to songs via Smart’s Spinnr music service, shop via online stores like Zalora, Lazada, book their travel details through sites like Skyscanner and Airbnb, among other things–all without incurring additional data charges.
