Globe ThePLAN vs Smart Giga Plan (Line-only)




Globe recently launched its latest postpaid plan. It’s now more flexible including the option to avail of a Line-only plan which has a bigger mobile data allowance. Smart, on the other hand, already updated its postpaid plans with Giga Plan that’s introduced last year.

If you’re planning on jumping to postpaid, here’s a comparison to give you an idea which one is more suited for you. Let’s compare the Line-only option of Globe’s ThePLAN (Call and Data) and Smart’s Giga Plan.

A Line-only Plan is easier to avail that a typical postpaid plan since it doesn’t include a handset from the telco. No handset means you get more allocation from your monthly fee. Also, it’s got a shorter contract for just 6 months versus the usual 24-month lock-up. The catch is you should provide your own handset.

Globe ThePLAN freebies:

  • Free Facebook (1GB allocation for 24 months)
  • 6 months subscription for HOOQ
  • 6 months subscription for Netflix (Plan 1299 and above)

Smart Giga Plan freebies:

  • A choice of app per month (Spinnr, Facebook, Yahoo Mail/Gmail, YouTube, Line, Viber, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Waze, Instagram, Twitter)

Clearly, Smart’s offering is more compelling when it comes to mobile data allowance, plus you get enough minutes of calls and unlimited texts to all networks. With Globe, you’ll get to enjoy sufficient data plus unlimited calling to other Globe/TM numbers and unlimited texting to all networks.

    Magandan offer ng smart pero pinapabayaan nila small town for their 4G network. Smart only focusing in key cities. Smart deploy good service in data nationwide even in remote area

    You can have more data allocation with globe’s The PLAN if you choose the Data Plus Plan (instead of Call & Data Plan) but you’ll lose the unli calls and text. Do note that globe has an additional P500 consumable :)

    ThePlan is more customizable than Giga Plan. Better revise the article to include the Data Plus versions of ThePlan.

    I have used a smart postpaid plan before, and they’ve been charging me MORE than what I was supposed to pay. Question lang, do they still do that? And how to avoid it. :)
