Smart Outs New Surf Plus Plans

Smart Post Paid Data

More flexible plans for the digital citizen

The telco War in the Philippine rages on with each contender firing salvo after salvo of plans to keep existing subscribers pleased and to entice others to defect to the other side. Given that most modern conveniences are available straight from our smartphones, one of the biggest battlegrounds is over mobile data to be able to make these services readily available.

Today, Smart announced new postpaid plan offerings to respond to the public’s need to access the content and convenience the worldwide web has to offer. These new Surf Plus Plans allows Smart subscribers to choose from a variety of plans that have bigger data allowances paired with customizable app-based add-ons that hinge on a specific user’s consumption and can be switched out every month.

The new Surf Plus Plans go for as low as P399, which is bundled with Unlimited Tri-Net Calls & Texts plus 100MB of Mobile Data, all the way up to P1999 that gives you a whopping 9GB of mobile data. As mentioned above, these plans come free with app add-ons for specific user archetypes; so whether you’re really active on social media, need to stream videos or music while you’re stuck in traffic, need constant access to your email account, chat it up constantly with your friends, or just need a better route to get you home faster, these new postpaid plans have got you covered.

Postpaid Marketing Head at Smart, Kathryn Carag, says: “When it comes to mobile data needs, there in no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution. There are those who simply want to casually browse their social media feeds, while there are others who are big fans of music and video streaming on their device. That is why we have designed our new postpaid plans to give subscribers the power to choose the best postpaid plan that’s perfect for whatever data appetite they have.”

The new Surf Plus Plans will be available starting today, May 13, and may come free with some of today’s newest smartphone offerings, like the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge for those eyeing the Surf Plus Plan 1999.

  1. I’m happy Smart released this, but I’m sad that the concept of competition for our network operators, is who can offer the ‘best’ plans for this amount of money for this amount of data allowance and additional options, NOT tangible, real-world data speeds. In America and to lesser extent the UK, network competition is through tangible, real-world speeds.

  2. “P1999 that gives you a WHOPPING 9GB of mobile data.”

    ohh really! hanga ka na agad sa 9GB monthly allowance? I say it’s paltry as compared to the unlimited bandwidth of before.

    1. Well, let’s put things in perspective here. Compared to the non-existent cap, I would have to agree that 9GB is, indeed, paltry. Sadly, as you have mentioned, that is a thing of the past. 9GB is almost double the amount of data allowance of other offerings out there and I must commend Smart for that. :)
