PLDT’s wireless unit Smart Communications, Inc (Smart) has teamed up with SM Cyberzone to offer customers great deals during Mobile Mania from July 9 to August 1, 2021.
Customers who will upgrade to Smart 5G handsets during the online sale will get a chance to receive a P2000 cashback and free Unli 5G data for 7 days. The telco is also offering a 50% discount for customers who will avail of PLDT and Smart Prepaid WiFi devices at The SM Store from July 1 to 15.
“In our continuous efforts to make the lives of our customers simple and easy through technology, we are happy to reward them with carefully crafted deals during Mobile Mania that would cater to their mobile connectivity needs. Our Smart 5G network is here to enable our customers to go beyond and pursue their passions in creating stories and videos, playing games, achieving their work goals, or pursuing their studies online,” said Precy P. Katigbak, FVP and Head of National Key Accounts at PLDT and Smart.
“This is another milestone in our partnership with Smart, as we continue to look for ways to offer our SM Cyberzone customers with the best deals for their mobile needs,” said Mr. Patrick Raymund G. Pacla, SAVP of SM Supermalls for Sponsorship and Cyberzone.
To enable customers to maximize its nationwide 5G network, Smart has also rolled out the country's first Unli 5G data offer, which is available in all Smart 5G-covered sites, including key cities like Metro Manila, Angeles City, Baguio City, Cavite City, Cebu City, Clark City, and Davao City, as well as in provinces like Batangas, Bacolod, Boracay, Cagayan de Oro, Laguna, Pampanga, Pangasinan, and Quezon.
To make the most of Unli 5G, Smart subscribers should have a Smart 5G-certified device and be in a Smart 5G-covered location. Currently, all Smart LTE SIMs are already 5G-ready.
With Unli 5G, subscribers can enjoy a superior and reliable 5G experience with absolutely no data-capping or speed-throttling. Unli 5G also comes with data for non-5G use so customers can stay connected even when they move from a 5G-covered location to a non-5G-covered site, or switch between Smart 5G and 4G/LTE networks.
Smart subscribers can avail of Unli 5G exclusively via GigaLife App, which is downloadable on Google Play and the Apple App Store.
Fastest 5G Network
Smart's 5G network--the country's first, fastest and nationwidest--now has more than 4,000 sites across the Philippines.
These services are made available by Smart, which was recently cited as the fastest 5G network in the Philippines by Ookla®, the global leader in internet testing and analysis. Based on consumer-initiated tests taken using Speedtest® by Ookla, Smart has consistently posted the fastest 5G speeds for Q1 2021, with median download speeds of 190 Mbps – more than double the competition's speeds for the same period.
PLDT currently operates the country’s most extensive fiber infrastructure, at more than 511,000 kilometers. This also supports Smart’s mobile networks, which now cover 96% of the population from Batanes to Tawi-Tawi.
PLDT and Smart’s relentless push to provide connectivity for all is aligned with the group’s long-standing commitment to help the Philippines attain the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG no. 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure.
