Smart Doubles Data Allocation For Big Bytes 50 Promo For a Limited Time


Now at 700MB

Always running out of data when you’re trying to view awesome websites (like the one you’re currently reading now)? Well, that’s not going to be a problem if your a Smart pre-paid subscriber – the telco has announced that they have doubled the data allocation given to people who enroll to their Big Bytes 50 promo from 350MB to 700MB, starting today.

The offer is for a limited time only, and you’re still getting the same 600MB of data allocation for Spinnr, iflix, YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Dubsmash and Skype Qik on top of that 700MB data volume.

If you want to try it out for yourself, you can text BIG50 to 9999. The promo is valid for 3 days at the start of activation.

  1. They should bring back unlimited or give an even more generous data package. Given the interconnectedness of things these days. May mga araw na updates pa lng sa apps, ubos na internet allocation mo. Sa websites like this, one mb plus per page is not unheard of.

    They could implement a cap for super heavy users (torrents) but it should be big enough not to penalize legit users. Personally, 1.5 GB is what I would consider reasonable.

    1. Capping is dangerous to implement. For example, hindi naman heavy torrenter, pero madalas sa mga heavy media websites (Tumblr, Imgur, 9GAG, Vimeo, Youtube, Twitch, streaming pag nasa condominium at yung smartphone lang ang hotspot dahil hindi makabitan ng fiber line) masasapul din kasama ang mga actual torrenter.

      Also, KULANG NA KULANG ANG 1.5 GB data (that amounts to 45MB everyday for 30 days.) May mga update ng apps na higit doble ang laki.

    1. Hindi ka lang po nasa LTE area o mumurahing Cherry Mobile ang gamit mo. Ang Note 3 ko na may LTE SIM ay nakakagamit ng LTE sa promo na ito.

    2. got nice 3g ako all the time, even in our 1st floor bathroom(spotty LTE thanks to mediatek processor/modem) can’t say the same with globe, at least where i live
