WHILE most of the people I know went on vacations the past Holy Week break, I decided to just stay at home and enjoy some peace and quiet. I’ve learned my lesson not to join the majority, after a not so pleasant holiday experience that almost drained the entire Christmas spirit out of me.

Also I’ve been quite hooked on YouTube and those video streaming services recently, plus the fact that there’s also the NBA playoffs. Go, Giannis! Go, Bucks!

Now, I do have a Smart postpaid plan, but since I’ve been doing a lot of phone reviews recently, I decided to get a Smart prepaid SIM as well so I could have the best of both worlds, which was timely since Smart launched its beefed up new Giga Video+ 149 just before the Holy Week break.

For those who love watching videos on their mobile devices (especially during traffic!) Smart Giga Video+ 149 includes 2GB open access data and up to 1GB or one hour of video access to YouTube, iFlix, iWanTV, NBA League Pass and Cignal TV per day for seven days with unlimited texts and calls to Smart, TNT and Sun.

For just P149 for seven days or just P21 a day, I was able to catch up on the WWE Raw and SmackDown shows on YouTube, find out why everyone has been talking about Glorious on iWanTV, and stay updated with the Bucks games all without having to worry about exceeding my data allocation.

Giga offers for your daily content

Regardless of budget or mobile lifestyle, there is a new and improved Giga offer available for digitally-savvy Filipinos, with unlimited texts to all networks and unlimited calls to Smart, TNT and Sun.

Smart Giga Video+ is also available for P75 (1GB open access data 3 days), P449 (4GB open access data for 30 days), P549 (6GB open access data for 30 days) and P649 (8GB open access data for 30 days). All Giga Video+ promos include the same call and text allocation, as well as up to 1GB or one hour of Video Every Day access.

The standard Giga Video (formerly GigaSurf) data offers, without call and text allocation, are still available for as low as P50, valid for three days. This already includes open access data and up to 1GB or one hour of Video Every Day access for the duration of the promo.

For a complete package, subscribers can opt for Giga Video+ Allnet offers to get unlimited calls and texts to all networks together with their open access data and up to 1GB or one hour of Video Every Day for the duration of the promo.

For avid gamers, the new Giga Games offers are available starting at P50 for three days. All Giga Games promos include open access data and an additional up to 1GB access to Mobile Legends, Arena of Valor (AOV), Clash of Clans and Clash Royale per day. 

Heavy social media users also have the option to choose the new Giga IG+FB offer, which has open access data and an additional 1GB access to Instagram per day.

To register to these new Giga offers, simply dial *121#.

Powered by PH’s fastest LTE

With Smart, customers can seamlessly stream, surf, play games, video-call and more, powered by the country’s fastest LTE network, as affirmed by third-party studies.

Recently, Canadian crowd-sourced mobile data company Tutela cited Smart as the country’s leader in terms of consistent network quality, based on their Southeast Asia State of Mobile Networks February 2019 report.

Ookla®, the global leader in internet testing and analysis, also recently awarded PLDT and Smart as the country’s fastest fixed and mobile networks. UK-based mobile analytics firm OpenSignal has also consistently recognized Smart for having the country’s fastest LTE network for its past four study rounds.
