  1. I spending fucking to much money for this shit internet.. philippines is the only coutry that had a very expensive data connection but worst service..

  2. Hi,Every time I visit Philippines I haven’t seen any development by both telecommunications!!!!
    we’re paying for unlimited data package but our per day 800mb limit this is unfair !!!. You have to consider your consumers are watching hd videos and games movies And etc….. You should give a limitation of data package for whole month as like 6gb limit so whatever consumers use those their welfare.
    Other countries are offering 12gb per month and unlimited per day no throttle no lag and worry to think each day about your data consumption.
    For setting up 800mb limit per day is not an option……
    I’m not completely satisfied with your term of use.

  3. yikes. smart now sucks. it really hurts students or people living in dormitories where you cant install your own wifi. we cant download heavy files and softwares since we are limited to just 800 mb. i hope they fix this. this is not good
