Smart FlexiSurf: Broadband On Budget

14 August 2012

How many times have you run out of load while doing research for your term paper or office presentation? What about the number of team losses experienced because you disappeared in the middle of sieging the enemy base? And how frequent do you exceed your broadband budget limit simply because you're not aware of your balance nor your usage levels?

Be prepared to bid your web woes goodbye because with Smart's new FlexiSurf Broadband plansFor as low as P299 a month for a SIM-only plan, FlexiSurf subscribers can enjoy speeds of up to 5Mbps for 30 hours on the Philippines' nationwidest 3G network.

There is also Power Plug-It Plan 499 and the Pocket Wi-Fi Plan 599 which offers the same blazing-fast speeds for 50 hours a month.

"Our FlexiSurf plans are several times more affordable than the regular P10 per 30 minute connection-which is already affordable to begin with," said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services Head Lloyd Manaloto. "What's more, subscribers can also keep track of their usage and balance info in real time via the Intelligent Dashboard."

The Intelligent Dashboard is a user friendly menu which displays usage data via Mac or PC. It offers budget-conscious users a much-needed "heads up" by showing just how much time they have consumed and how many hours they still have left on their plan. This feature is also especially useful for subscribers who have WiFi connectivity at home or in the office and who only consume their FlexiSurf hours when they're mobile.

"The Intelligent Dashboard gives you complete control so you're never in the dark when it comes to data usage," said Manaloto. "And to further up the ante on our worry-free plans, we put a permanent lock on the dreaded Bill Shock."

Smart Bro's Anti-Bill Shock feature which is present in all FlexiSurf plans. Anti-Bill Shock automatically turns on unlimited surfing so users will be charged no more than P999 for an entire months' use.

As an added bonus, FlexiSurf also offers subscribers the chance to purchase a netbook or a tablet of their choice. For an amortized and discounted amount on top of the monthly service fee (MDF), FlexiSurfers can take home a Cherry Mobile Superion tablet, a Samsung Galaxy Tab P6200, or a dual-core Acer AOD722 netbook.
