[23 March 2012] Smart and Sun Cellular subscribers can now connect with more people at lower rates and with superior quality as Smart continues to expand its network and Sun becomes part of the PLDT (Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co.) family.
The growth in Smart’s subscriber base to 50 million (from 46 million in 2010) and the addition of 15 million Sun subscribers brought the PLDT group’s cellular base to 65 million. This means that a Smart subscriber availing of the network’s Tri-net offers – promos that reduce call and text rates within the Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun circle – can reach more people at low cost.
Among Smart’s promo packages is the Tri-Net 30 bundle which gives Smart prepaid subscribers 100 SMS to all networks, 5 MB worth of mobile Internet, and 50 call minutes to any Smart, Talk ‘N Text, or Sun number, valid for one day.
“No network has made an offer as good as this because there has never been a network as big as ours,” said Smart Mobile Marketing Head Guido Zaballero.
“We have made it more affordable for Smart subscribers to keep in touch with their loved ones who are Sun subscribers. The money they get to save because of our offers can then be spent on other things that are important to them,” he added.
Also ongoing is the Trio 20 promo which provides prepaid subscribers of Smart and Talk ‘N Text with 15 call minutes and 200 SMS to any Smart, Talk ‘N Text, or Sun number, all for just P20 a day.
Meanwhile, the Smart Sun Dual Plan 549 offers unlimited texts to Smart and Sun subscribers, two call hours to any Smart number, and four call hours to any Sun number. The monthly plan also comes with a free dual-SIM phone.
“Smart is proud of being the country’s biggest network. The continued expansion of our subscriber base shows that more and more mobile phone users trust the quality of our services. Some people might ask, is bigger necessarily better? In Smart’s case, it is. With our Tri-net and similar offers, subscribers get more value for their hard-earned money,” Zaballero said.
Smart subscribers who already enjoy superior call quality and nationwide coverage can also look forward to an even better consumer experience as the wireless leader is currently undertaking massive network transformation initiatives.
Smart and PLDT have invested P67.1 billion for network upgrades, which will result in superior voice connection, quicker SMS delivery, and enhanced data connection speeds.
