Smart introduces LTE Plan 1299

Smart has introduced a new and lower LTE plan for subscribers on top of the existing LTE Plan 3500 and LTE Plan 1799.

Smart’s LTE Plan 1299 drops the monthly subscription fee to just Php1,299 with a 24-month lock-in period.

The plan comes with a free LTE dongle or you can upgrade to an LTE WiFi modem for a one-time fee of Php2,000. Of course, the data cap is also lowered to just 5GB per month.

    what happens if you reach the cap?

  2. psacnhez says:

    Either your speed gets capped like tattoo, or you get billed for excess bandwith use.

    Kalokohan to kasi sa mga malalaking malls pa lang ang LTE nila. So most of the time naka H o H+ pa rin connection mo so lugi ka. Tsaka throttled ang speed sa 6 to 7mbps kasi nung kinumpare ko sa Jump Megamall yung mga laptop nilang naka LTE sa Xperia V ko sa kanila, nakaka 20mbps yung laptop nila samantalang nakaka 5-6 mbps lang ang Xperia V ko. Kalokohan to! At isa ako sa mga naloko!

    LTE with 5Gb data cap? That’s stupid, it’s like a cup of water in a very big “timba”. Sayang ang LTE kung ganyan kababa ang cap, and for 1.3k? I’d rather have DSL.

    Nice promotion Smart Telecoms, but honestly, it’s stupid.

    can’t wait for Globe to roll out their LTE at least yung current 3G nila na plan pwede to agad sa LTE yey!

  6. ace says:

    jeez, at LTE speed isang araw lang ubos yang 5GB na cap. Nag postpaid ka pa kung isang araw mo lang magagamit (or magagamit ng matino). What a useless plan this is.

  7. Marc says:

    Walang kwentang plan!!! What a joke!

    Hi Enya,

    Read your message :)

    NakaXperia V din ako from Smart. Hindi ko rin narereach ang 42mbps, pero 17mbps is a decent speed. Sa ibang lugar 6-7 pero mabilis naman na. Tama, nung pumunta ako sa megamall, yung Laptop mabilis ang speed pero ung Xperia V and z82 eh mabgal..

    About dun sa nagiging H or H+, set your mobile networking setting to LTE ONLY.. Wla xa mismo sa Mobile Network Settings…

    You need to choose, WCDMA only. Then, go to Phone, dial *#*#4636#*#* then chosee PHONE INFO, then choose LTE ONLY dun sa drop down menu sa SET PREFERRED NETWORK..)

    Wlang choice ang fone kundi puro LTE signal ang kukunin… Sa akin, kahit nasa House ako, naka LTE wala nga lang BARS hehehe :) per LTE pa din,mga 3-4 mbps ang speed :)

    Hope this helps.

    • Enya says:

      Taga san po kayo? Kasi never pa ko naka 17mbps. Kahit sa Ayala, Shangrila Mall, or Ortigas. Pinakamataas kung nakuha ay 7mbps sa Jump Megamall.

    • Edwin says:

      I’m from Makati… Alam mo ung flyover dun sa Kalayaan, Pitogo specifically, dun kasi parati way ko papuntang office, dun … naka 17mbps ako :)

  9. Edwin says:

    Sorry, Choose WCDMA/GSM :)

  10. Edwin says:

    Sorry, nagmukhan spam na tuloy… Set mo muna WCDMA/GSM un network bago lahat.. Then follow mo na un instructions about sa pag SET ng LTE only.. :) – sa xperia V ko pa lang natry to… :) sa Note 2 ayaw :)

    LTE speeds are ridiculously useless when you have caps. They should make it unlimited, and then just lower the maximum speeds per plan. The highest plans get the highest speeds and the lowest plans get the lowest ones.

    Or they could come up with some kind of anti bill shock on top of the plan so that it becomes unlimited when they reach a certain amount. This way those who keep on saying that they just need fast speeds but won’t be able to expend the whole 5GB a month can do so. And those who want to download stuff can also do as they please albeit with a higher payment.

  12. psycotrompus says:

    WTF!!! Stupid promotion! There’s no such thing as unlimited these days! LTE speeds here are just some marketing term for 42Mbps, which actually is just HSUPA! And that cap is just nonsense when they’re saying it unlimited!!!

  13. meh says:

    5GB cap are they insane? Thats about 1 week worth of LTE if that.

    I’m staying far away from this LTE until they can become more reasonable

    • DTech says:

      2 days lang para sa akin yan or maybe just for a day! I got my iPhone 5 from globe just this 7th of January. After a week of data connectivity, I’ve already downloaded 24gbs of data unaware. That’s with the use of their HSPA+ network, since LTE is not yet enabled. I get up to 7mbps speed, which is quite worthy of just 999 a month charge.

      Felt sorry for smart, for sure they will hardly find not so smart customers these days.

  14. DTech says:

    Not smart at all…

  15. Les says:

    Sa Skype lang ubos yan in a week kaya wag na kayo mag paloko sa plan na yan! Syempre pag naka LTE ka lahat gagawin mo sa net kaya ubos agad yan.

    Bakit ba hindi niyo kaya mag bigay ng unlimited 4G na walang cap? kayang kaya naman bayaran ng mga pinoy yan eh :)

  16. Aeon says:

    Personally, nung una kong narinig tong LTE sa pinas, talagang hindi ako maniniwala na kaya ka nila bigyan ng ganun kabilis na speed. Eh yun nga lang 3G hirap na, LTE pa kaya. Dream on…

  17. marketing says:

    I have yet to see an honest to goodness public utility service in the PH, yung sulit sa binabayaran mong serbisyo.mproblema kasi kita muna ang iniisip at bahala na si batman sa mga customers

  18. LoLz says:

    Inyo na yang LTE nyo, 3G, H at H+ lang hirap na kayong i deliver, LTE pa?

  19. andy says:

    Nag avail ako ng plan lte nila yun promo ng Experia V, i am charging regular data rate per min after sumobra ako sa 1.5GB limit. Kakatawag ko lang sa call center nila, dahil lte plan daw yun sakin, laki tuloy ng bill ko, asan ang unli data ko, kala ko unlimited data, pano ko pabago to

  20. andy says:

    Im on plan lte 1500 with free experia V, di ko alam na i will be charged regular data rate after maubos ko yun 1.5G cap. Sana nagglobe na lang ako. I asked Wireless center kung pede ko gawin unlidata plan, they refused. Hais, 24 lockin period pa naman, any advise?

  21. Andy says:

    Talaga? LTE PLAN din ako pero di naman ako nacharge ng per minute. sobra na ako sa 3 GB or more pa, kasi last time nasa 2.5 GB na nagamit ko. And take note po, unlimited ang LTE PLAN til january 31… Nagask ako sa agent dati, mababawasan lang ang speed, pero unli pa din… Check mo baka naman tumatawag ka or something…saka, if bago pa plan mo, malamang prorated charge un… Di pa un ung actual bill… Unless generated na un bill mo
