Lucky subscribers who would be fortunate enough to book any of Smart or Sun’s customized cars will get a chance to receive exclusive perks or prizes. Other customized Easy Taxi cars will also be powered by Smart Bro, allowing commuters to access the Internet with FREE WiFi inside the taxi while on the go.
“Commuting in Metro Manila can be quite a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be any less fun or enjoyable for our dear subscribers. This partnership with Easy Taxi is another way we allow our users to ‘live more’ by giving them simple yet meaningful experiences enriched by our largest mobile network nationwide,” said Charles Lim, EVP and Head of Wireless Consumer Division for Smart and Sun.
Easy Taxi is an innovative way of getting around the city by allowing users to virtually hail and book cars using only their mobile phones through the Easy Taxi app for Android and iOS devices. Smart and Sun Cellular users can download and use the app with the help of the FREE INTERNET offer, which gives them 30MB of mobile data every day until January 5, 2015. Just text FREE to 9999 to avail of this exclusive limited offer.
Once they get on the car, they can still enjoy high-speed mobile broadband connectivity courtesy of the free WiFi installed on each of Smart and Sun’s customized Easy Taxi cars, powered by Smart’s largest mobile network of more than 10,000 4G (LTE and HSPA+) sites around the country.
"We're innovating and improving the commuter experience with the SMART and Sun promo cars. Powered by the nation's largest network, combined with the best drivers, Easy Taxi passengers can now enjoy a fun, free and safe ride, while connecting with friends amidst the heavy traffic,” added Daniel Torres, Easy Taxi Philippines CEO.
