Manny Pangilinan: FREE mobile Internet for two months
If you have a Smart, Sun Cellular, or Talk ‘n Text prepaid SIM on a data-enabled mobile device, you can enjoy up to 30mb of FREE mobile Internet per day for two months.
Now you can browse through and post on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram; visit your favorite sites; search on Google and Wikipedia, use Waze and Google Maps; book a cab or limi through Easy Taxi and Uber; use traffic info sites like MMDS’s and InterAksyon’s; send and receive emails; update your blogs; listen to music via Spinnr; or shop online via Lazada or Zalora, all without incurring data charges.
Just to be clear: it’s free mobile Internet with limits – 30mb per day – and up until the end of November. “Free” here means no data charges, not unlimited bandwidth.
“This special offer is specifically designed to assist our prepaid subscribers who make up the bulk of our population. Many of them have the mobile devices capable of accessing the Internet but have yet to use them to go online,” said Manuel V. Pangilinan, chairman of Smart and its parent company, PLDT.
Acer’s TRIPLE SIM smartphone, the Liquid E700, suddenly makes perfect sense.
This move complements Smart’s other affordable Internet access innovations, such as PisoNet, which gives users 10 minutes of mobile Internet access for one peso.
To avail of this free mobile Internet offer, Smart, Talk N Text, and Sun Cellular subscribers must have an available airtime balance of at least one peso, or is subscribed to any load bucket or promo. They must register eash day, by simply sending “FREE” to the number “9999.” Registration is free. They will receive an SMS confirmation upon successful registration.
Once registered, subscribers can enjoy a free data volume package of up to 30MB per day. However, data charges will apply to peer-to-peer uploads and downloads, videos, VOIP, and messaging.
This special offer will be available initially until November 30, 2014.
