Smart Communications

Smart Communications recently unveiled new rates for its roaming services aimed at giving postpaid subscribers a much easier way of controlling their phone usage and expenses while travelling abroad. Now, Smart’s roaming rates for voice, text and data services enjoyed by postpaid subscribers are categorized based on two zones – Asia and America on one hand, and the rest of the world on the other.

Starting today (April 25), Smart postpaid subscribers who are travelling to countries in Asia and America will only have to pay a flat rate of PHP18 per text message, PHP50 per minute for incoming calls, PHP115 per minute for outgoing calls and PHP3 per 10 kilobytes of data.

On the other hand, subscribers who are bound for countries in the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Oceania will be charged with a flat rate of PHP23 per text message, PHP65 per minute for incoming calls, PHP145 pesos per minute for outgoing calls and PHP5 per 10 kilobytes of data.

Easy calculable rates for greater convenience
“Many phone users have a hard time determining whether or not to avail of roaming services out of confusion with the rates or fear of racking up a huge amount in their phone bill when they come back home,” said Michele Curran, Group Head for Smart Data and International Services.

“With these simplified rates, Smart postpaid subscribers may enjoy the peace of mind of having the most affordable roaming services. Moreover, they can easily calculate their phone usage and will not have to be in the dark whenever they need to make or take an important call, send a text message or use mobile internet overseas,” she added.

Discounted rates from Smart partner networks
Smart Postpaid subscribers may also get lower rates when they are headed to countries covered by the Conexus Mobile Alliance and Vodafone Group.
