More Filipino travelers abroad can now stay connected to mobile apps like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram without the anxiety of racking up huge phone bills as wireless services leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) introduces the All-Day Surf Abroad, the country’s first data roaming service for prepaid users.
An affordable shock-proof mobile data roaming package, Smart’s All-Day Surf Abroad allows prepaid subscribers to enjoy mobile surfing in select overseas destinations for only P500 per day.
“A first in the country, the All-Day Surf Abroad opens the benefits of mobile data roaming to Smart’s nearly 25 million prepaid subscribers so they may experience a much richer travel experience,” said Michele Curran, Smart Data and International Services Head.
“Using Smart’s All-Day Surf Abroad, prepaid users may now enjoy a wealth of online information at their fingertips – from news and weather updates to tips about dining and shopping – that will make for a smoother and more memorable getaway,” Curran added.
With mobile data roaming, travelers may also communicate easily with their loved ones or travel buddies using chat apps like Line or Viber; post snapshots of their adventures on Instagram; and share their awesome experiences with their circle of friends on Facebook – anywhere and anytime, without the hassle of looking for available wi-fi connections or Internet cafés.
Smart Prepaid users may enjoy all-day mobile surfing on Smart’s roaming partners in top Asian destinations, which include Hong Kong (via Hutchison); Indonesia (Indosat); Japan (NTT DoCoMo); Macau (Hutchison) Malaysia (DiGi and CelCom); Singapore (Starhub); South Korea (KT); Taiwan (FarEastOne); Thailand (True); and Vietnam (Vinaphone).
Upon arriving at these destinations, prepaid subscribers may register to the service by simply dialing *133# and then selecting Smart’s roaming partner-network. Smart Prepaid subscribers may enjoy the service between 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. on the date of activation, and make the most of it with the assurance that they won’t be charged beyond what they have already paid for.
“With All-Day Surf Abroad, Smart Prepaid subscribers no longer have to put their online life on hold once they step out of the country, so they may now enjoy a truly mobile lifestyle even when out of the country,” said Curran.
