Smart starts capping Data Plans from Unli to 18GB

Smart starts capping Data Plans from Unli to 18GB




Both postpaid plans are now just Data Plan 2000 with 10GB cap and Data Plan 3000 with 18GB cap, shedding the term unli altogether. For the dedicated iPhone Plan 999, the monthly cap is 3.5GB while iPhone Plan 1799 has 8GB monthly data allocation.

Once the data caps are reached, subsribers are still able to access the internet but it will be crippled or limited to surfing only as downloads, streaming (YouTube, Spotify, Deezer, etc), and P2P (torrents) will be blocked.

These new plans come with every new subscription of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. We are not sure yet if other data plans like the Galaxy Note 4 also reflects the new imposed data caps.

However, old subscribers who were signed up for the Unli Data plans will still have unlimited mobile internet. Unless, of course, they recontract or renew their plans to the new scheme.

We have yet to confirm if the old Unli Data plans will still be continued to be offered or be phased out in favor of the new capped Data Plans.

A few months back, subscribers have been complaining about data caps strictly imposed by Globe as well as the issue on their Fair Use Policy.

It looks like Smart has followed the same mechanics with putting in place the data caps.

Smart representatives have categorically stated in press releases that their network is able to accomodate the growing data consumption of their subscribers so we are puzzled why they have opted to put data limits this time around.

You can check Smart’s fine print on the Data Plans for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus here to see the data allocation for mobile internet.
