Good news!!! Smart Communications (Philippines) offers UNLIMITED mobile surfing for PhP 50.00 (about $1 for 1 day) and PhP 300.00 (about $7 for 7 days). Their regular rate for mobile surfing is PhP 10.00/30-minute block which is a little bit expensive when compared to those offered by internet cafes which can go for as low as PhP 8.00/hr.
It has been a clamor of mobile surfers to have unlimited internet access since with most network providers, you have to be aware of your time or the data you sent/received or else you will drain your prepaid funds or blow your monthly bill sky high.
Just be informed that in order for you to get the best deal out of your bucks, you need to be in an area with 3G or 3.5G (HSDPA). Otherwise, you will have to bear with the slow dial-up like internet connection (GPRS/EDGE). Also your mobile should be 3G/3.5G-capable (duh..).
To register, you just need to open your phone browser to the home page of Smart Communications and the link is located under promos. Just click the link of your preferred promo and accept the terms and conditions and you’re good to go. For prepaid SMART Bro subscribers, sorry to inform you that registration can only be made through a mobile phone and I don’t think the SIM of SMART Bro is supported on mobile phones. For prepaid SMART Bro subscribers, just insert your SMART Bro SIM card to your mobile phone and register via http://wap.smart.com.ph.
To register, just text “unli 50” and send to 211.
What’s more? If you prefer to surf using your desktop or laptop, you may do so by using the PC Suite that came with your mobile (i.e., Nokia/Ovi PC Suite, SE PC Suite, etc.). The unlimited surfing still applies. I have tested and proven this and in fact, I am using it right now.
For those living in other countries, I posted this news so you may have some idea that unlimited mobile surfing is offered in other parts of the world so you can demand that your respective network providers provide the same service/promo to you.
