I was one of those subscribers who regularly used and abused Smart’s free internet. I registered daily for that extra 30MB of data because (1) its free, and (2) 30MB, if used sparingly, can get you through one day. Naturally, I was a bit saddened when the promo ended. Good thing Smart is bringing it back.
Smart’s free internet is back and more, but it won’t be the same as before. This time, the telco is bundling it with their top prepaid call and text offers. Under the new scheme, Smart Prepaid subscribers who top up and subscribe to various call and text offers automatically gets up to 30MB worth of FREE data per day. No more need to sign up or register daily.
“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. This new offer will enable us to further pursue our Internet for All campaign and encourage more people to stay connected, empowered, and enriched by Smart’s fast, fun and worry-free mobile Internet, which is at the core of our Internet for All campaign this year,” said Charles A. Lim, executive vice president and head of the wireless consumer business of Smart Communications.
In addition, Smart also opened up the online activities you could do with the free 30MB. You can enjoy watching videos on YouTube, Vimeo, or Daily Motion, browsing through and posting on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; 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 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.
