You have to give it to Sun Cellular for shaking things up and making the “unlimited” offering very cheap and popular among the masses. I guess they’re partly to credit why the Philippines is still the texting capital of the world.
And they continue to challenge the competition and offer cheaper deals like this Call & Text 25 (CTU25):
Granted, the unlimited call and text are only applicable to Sun to Sun connections but their network now has over 12 million subscribers (from 1 to 2 million a few years back) so at least we know either more people are switching to Sun or making it their second line.
The CTU25 charges a one-time fee of Php25.00 to make unlimited calls and texts within the Sun Cellular network (just text CTU25 to 247). If you subscribe 3 days in a row, they’ll give you the 4th day free. So if you subscribe 23 days in a month, you get the whole month on CTU25. Total spend for 30 days is about Php562.50.
I’m not really on Sun prepaid but anybody out there using Sun can let us know how this works out.
