Smart revisits Always On plans with cheaper rates
Smart has revised their Alway On plans to offer more bucket options and drive prices down. The new plan starts at Php10 for 5MB of mobile internet usable in 24 hours.
Here are the bucket pricing from last year and when you compare that to the new table below, you will notice some of the plans were reduced while others remained the same (an indication that the move is to level with competition, otherwise it would have been across the board).
The 1GB bucket is now Php499 from Php750 last year (same with Globe PowerSurf 499) while the 250MB bucket is now Php199 from Php300. The 50MB for Php99 for 30days was also introduced (now exactly the same as Globe PowerSurf 99).
The revised Always On plans now make Smart’s offering better compared to Globe’s PowerSurf. However, the main difference between the two is that Smart’s Always On plans are available to SmartBro prepaid users and not postpaid subscribers. It’s also available to Smart Postpaid GSM subs as well.
