Manny Pangilinan has just announced (complete with live stream) Smart’s ‘noble’ push to provide free internet to all Smart, Sun and Talk and Text's subscribers.
To avail of this promo, a user needs to register daily by sending FREE to 9999.
So what is the scope of this free internet? This is applicable to all active prepaid subscribers. It will be free for up to 30MB and still subject to promo terms and fair use. Active users are those who have at least one peso load or is subscribed to any load bucket or promo.
Of course, with everything free, comes some fine print. These are the type of websites excluded from the promo:
- Download, stream and watch videos (Youtube, Vimeo)
- Use VOIP apps (FaceTime, FaceTime Audio, Skype, Viber, Tango)
- Use messaging apps (Whatsapp, WeChat, Line, Viber)
- Peer-to-peer file-sharing sites and apps like Bittorrent
