Smart Browsing set at P10.00 for 30 minutes

Smart has set its Internet browsing rate for both GPRS and 3G at a flat rate of P10.00 for every 30 minutes. Unlike before when they used to charge per kilobyte, Smart’s charging scheme is now time-based just like that of an Internet Cafe. With this, users can surf the Internet sites through their cellphones at a broadband speed. This P10.00 charging scheme is applicable when subscribers browse outside of Smart’s official WAP site. An additional P10 shall be charged for every 30 minutes thereafter or for every fraction thereof. Browsing the Smart WAP site still remains free and the rates for downloading mobile content is still the same.
