The much awaited announcement by Mr. Manny V. Pangilinan was already made. No it wasn’t about running for public office, no he’s not getting married, nor purchasing a new company. The announcement is like an early Christmas gift in September.
Mr. Pangilinan has just announced that all subscribers of Smart Prepaid, Sun Prepaid and Talk ‘N Text will be able to use mobile internet for free. The Big Boss of PLDT said that these subscribers can post status on Facebook, upload photos on Instagram, listen to streaming music on Spinnr, shopping on Lazada or Zalora, and of course browse your favorite websites. Basically, they’re encouraging these prepaid subscribers to go online and experience mobile internet life without having to pay and subscribe for special prepaid data promos. Ang galing! This is definitely better than just free Facebook. MVP and the rest of the Smart executives obviously want to give more to the people.
Smart, Sun and Talk ‘N Text prepaid subscribers can start using their free mobile data starting today with at least 1 peso in their prepaid balance. Though MVP mentioned and encouraged that mobile browsing and app usage that requires internet connectivity can be used with their free mobile data, accessing streaming videos like YouTube and torrent downloading are not allowed. A paywall would appear and will advise the user to top-up their credits to access those features.
The promo is good up to November 30, but who knows, maybe they will extend it until next year!
