SMART announces free internet for 66 million prepaid users
Posted on

Be very afraid.
SMART has just launched free mobile Internet for prepaid subscribers.
That means over 66 million Filipinos can gain access to the Internet just by having SMART, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun Cellular prepaid SIM cards on their mobile phones.
I’m kidding of course—this, coming from someone who’s had several run-ins with certain social media users 🙂
But seriously this is good news for prepaid users who can get free access to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SMART Spinnr, Wikipedia, Waze, Google Maps, Uber, and more from now until November 30, 2014.

This groundbreaking announcement was made last Friday by SMART and PLDT Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan during a press conference at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.

“We are launching this initiative to provide a much larger number of Filipinos the opportunity to try out and experience the Internet, enjoy its benefits and, as we at SMART like to say, live more,” said MVP. “This special offer is specifically designed to assist our prepaid subscribers who make up the bulk of our population. Many of them already have the mobile devices capable of accessing the Internet but have yet to use them to go online.”

To avail of the free mobile internet offer, Smart, Talk N Text and Sun Cellular subscribers need to have an available airtime balance of at least one peso, or be subscribed to any load bucket or promo.
They must register each day, by simply texting FREE to 9999. Registration is free.
Once registered, they will receive an SMS confirmation and be able to enjoy a free data volume package of up to 30MB per day. Data charges will however apply to peer-to-peer uploads and downloads, videos, VOIP and messaging.
