#MVPAnnouncement was the major thing last Friday and I am so glad I was there to witness the announcment itself by none other than PLDT Chairman, Mr. Manny V. Pangilinan.
The room went silent, all the press people were wondering what the important announcement was all about until that moment when Mr. MVP said:
This is a bold move from Smart Communications Inc., Talk ' Text and Sun Cellular. A move that may raise eyebrows to others with all the questions storming in like: "How much bandwidth?" "How fast will the internet connection be?" etc...
FREE is FREE! Who doesn't want FREE?
Free internet access for Smart, Sun Cellular and Talk 'N Text prepaid subscribers starting September 26, 2014 until November 30, 2014 via data-enabled cellphones. You can browse through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. You can visit your favorite websites, search Google access Wikipeida app m.wikipedia.org
#SmartFreeWikipedia. Use navigation tools like Waze and Google Maps, book a cab or limo service via Easy Taxi and Uber or use traffic info sites such as MMD's and InterAksyon's.
And that's not all, you can send and receive emails, read your favorite blogs and if you are a blogger like me, you can also update your blogs, listen to songs via Smart's Spinner music service, shop via online stores like Zalora, Lazada, book travel details through sites like Skyscanner and Expedia. The list could go on!
For me, this is a very humane move from Smart Communications Inc. because there are still so many Filipinos out there who can't afford internet plans and have relatives who work overseas and would like to update each other's lives! This special offer is a great way to open up the portal of communication for those who doesn't have the means!
Thanks to their advocacy of "Internet For All", this promo ends November 20, 2014 but I personally hope this promo will go beyond the said date!

You must register each day by simply sending "FREE" to the number "9999". Registration is free and you will receive an SMS confirmation upon successful registration. Once registered, subcribers can enjoy a free data volume package of up to 30mb per day. Data charges will however apply to peer-to-pper uploads and downloads, videos, VOIP and messaging.
