Introducing, All-Month Surf

The iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 are also available on Plan 1999 and Plan 1799, respectively, and comes with 3.5GB of mobile data every month plus All-Month Surf. An initial cash-out of P7,200 and P2,700 will apply, respectively.

All-Month Surf is basically Smart’s new way of helping people to enjoy limitless basic Internet surfing like visiting their favorite social networking sites, chat messaging and email reading. This would be very applicable to users that have very light internet usage. But, however, downloading and streaming would be consumed against their monthly volume allocation. So if you want to access bandwidth-heavy online activities, you should head to Smart Bro Dashboard and purchase addition volume data buckets. It’s that easy.

Customers can buy iPad Air 2 with Wi-Fi + Cellular and iPad mini 3 with Wi-Fi + Cellular at Smart Stores and online at store.smart.com.ph starting December 12.
