After Smart’s announcement of its new SurfMax promo and updated FUP (fair use policy), we checked out Globe’s create-your-own-promo thru GoSakto which is surprisingly cheaper and has 1GB consumable data and 20SMS to all-network a day for P36 pesos only, compared to Smart SurfMax with 800MB throttling data point for P50.
For starters, Smart Telecommunication has announced changes to its prepaid and postpaid basic surfing plans, mainly the SurfMax and SurfMax Plus for 4G LTE speed. These new SurfMax promos have throttling speed once you’ve reached 800MB in a day. It means they will slow down or reduce both your internet download and upload speed once you’ve reached the data cap.
|Service Provider||Plan||Data||Speed and limit||Cost|
|Globe||GoSakto 1GB data/day + 20SMS to all-network||1GB or 1024MB||Consumable and up to 4G LTE speed||P36 a day|
|Smart||SurfMax (bro, prepaid)||800MB (once reached, speed will reduce)||Unlimited and up to 3.5G or HSPA+||P50 a day|
|Smart||SurfMax Plus||800MB (once reached, speed will reduce)||Unlimited and up to 4G LTE||P50 a day|
Unlike Globe’s consumable GoSakto 1GB/day, SurfMax is still unlimited, however, internet speed will reduce and may vary for each user. Smart is yet to announce on what will be the specific internet speed after reaching the daily limit.
How-to Create your own Globe Sakto Promo for P36/day
Creating your Globe’s GoSakto promo is very easy, just dial *143# on your phone then navigate to Create Your Own Promo > Text and Surfing > All-net text > 20SMS > 1000MB or 1GB data > 1 day > Subscribe.
If you’re going to set 2 days or more, then the price will increase while on the same data cap.
