Smart caps Mobile Internet @ 1.5GB/month
This is the first time I was able to read Smart’s Fair Use Policy on Mobile Internet Use and was surprised to see that their cap on unlimited mobile internet is just 1.5GB per month.
A reader was asking for some clarifications about Smart’s Samsung Galaxy Tab and the accompanying unlimited mobile internet. After a quick search on Smart’s website, I discovered that they only allow up to 1.5GB of bandwidth per month.
Once the cap is reached, they will throttle you down to a slower (yet unknown) speed. And here’s the catch:
The 1.5GB allocation of the Fair Use Policy applies only to mobile browsing. Value Added Services (VAS) such as push email, messaging and BlackBerry services usage consumption are not covered by the Fair Use Policy.
So if you’re one of those who recently got the Nokia N8 or the Samsung Galaxy Tab for with the unlimited mobile internet, you now know what “internet plan” it came with. That means zero to limited internet tethering on your mobile device.
