Traveling abroad? Smart makes it easier to avoid bill shock
Posted on

Off to Jakarta tomorrow for the first time!
Already know where to eat, but please tell me where to shop!
I’m also excited to use my Smart phone when I get there so I can check on my kids and update my social media without worrying about the cost. No need to buy a foreign SIM or rent a pocket wifi at the airport!

As a Smart postpaid subscriber, I’m looking forward to their 500-a-day All-Day Surf Abroad plan. That means, you pay only Php 500 pesos for a full day of high-speed mobile Internet abroad.
What’s more, has expanded its coverage to more than 110 countries around the world—the widest data-roaming network available to Filipino travellers today.
By the end of the year, the list will further expand to include a total of 180 countries around the world.

Surf Abroad 550

There’s no need for registration.
Surf Abroad 550 is available as a fully automated service for Smart Postpaid subscribers. All you have to do is turn on data roaming on your phone. It’s automatic and you will no longer suffer from “bill shock” when you get your statement.
Once the service is active, subscribers will receive an SMS notification that they have already been subscribed to the enhanced Surf Abroad 550 package.
“Subscribers are now free to roam without fear,” said Tina Mariano, Global Access and International Services head at Smart.
