[01 March 2012] Wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) is giving both current and new mobile broadband subscribers a 100% worry-free browsing experience as it introduces its new anti “bill shock” feature.
From today, users on a time-based SIM-only or Pocket WiFi Plan 495 who go beyond their 50-hour monthly data allocation will only be billed a maximum of P999 per month.
“We’ve put a lock on bill shock,” said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services head Gio Bacareza. “With our new ‘shock proof’ plans, Smart Bro postpaid subscribers can just concentrate on having a great Internet experience without worrying about quota times or being overcharged,” he added.
Once the 50-hour allocation has been consumed, subscribers will be charged P10 for every 30 minutes of use. A user who surfs for a total of 51 hours in a month will therefore be charged P515 in his or her monthly bill.
The said pricing scheme will then continue until the total bill reaches P999 (approximately 80 hours of use) at which time, the plan will automatically become an unlimited subscription.
“The shock-proofed plans make Smart Bro the total package. Not only do we have the fastest speeds and the widest coverage, but now we also have the most cost-efficient plans for our subscribers,” said Bacareza. “We’ve given them the option to pay depending on their unique usage patterns,” he ended.
Tests conducted by an independent engineering firm last year have revealed that Smart Bro’s connection speeds bests the competition by as much as 2Mbps in over 100 locations nationwide.
The difference in speeds are part of the effects of the P67.1 billion network modernization and transformation efforts currently being undertaken by Smart and parent company, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT).
The project is now in its final stretch and is scheduled to be complete by mid-2012.
“It’s easy to say that you have the fastest devices and the fastest wireless connection speeds, but if you don’t have a solid infrastructure working in the background, you can’t deliver quality service to your subscribers,” said PLDT and Smart Technology Group Head Rolando G. Peña.
