Smart to start charging Php2 per 1MB this November 28

Abe Olandres, writing for Yugatech;

Smart has announced last week that they will be changing their default data charging rate from Php5 for 15 minutes to Php2 for every 1MB. This is effective November 28, 2017. The new Php2/MB rate now removes the default time-based charging for all Smart Postpaid accounts.

Smart created a detailed help article on the new data charging rate.

We are enhancing our pay-per-use data billing model of Php 5 for every 15 minutes of data consumed to Php 2 for every 1MB consumed. With this enhancement, we will be able to better serve you and your data needs. Please read below to know the new benefits, features, and change in postpaid experience — Effective November 28, 2017

I’m pretty sure a lot of people will not be happy with the new data charging rate.
