Smart Giga Plans
I think the Giga Plans are now the best postpaid services ever offered by Smart. Why? because right now it provides users up to 10 times more data allowance than the telco's previous offerings. In addition to more monthly data, unlimited texts to all networks, free app of your choice, and calling minutes are also offered with these Giga Plans.
