As you can see from the table above, all the Unlimited Data plans from Smile Communications have a validity period of 30 days. Some of them come with a fair usage policy (FUP) while others don’t. By fair usage policy, we mean that you will enjoy maximum browsing speed until you consume the data allocated to the plan. After this, the data speed drops based on what is specified by the company. For example, after you finish the 35GB under the UnlimitedLite plan, the data speed drops to 8Mbps. On the other hand, the data speed drops to 3Mbps after you consume the 180GB under the Freedom 3Mbps.
Note that the company reserves a right to make changes to these data plans and their prices if the need arises. Such changes may occur based on an alteration of company policies or new instructions from the NCC. We will be on the lookout for any changes and will update this post accordingly when we notice any.
