Smart Bro Plans
When it comes to basic broadband plans, you have more options to choose from with Smart Bro Plans than with Sun Non-Stop Surf Plans.
With Smart Bro Plans, you can get 3.5 GB of monthly data for as low as P299 – the cheapest option among all these data plans. It’s also the only plan that has limited access to iflix and comes with 4G pocket WiFi, which is slower compared to LTE pocket WiFis.
If you avail the more expensive plans, you get a higher data limit plus free and unlimited access to various entertainment channels.
All these plans ranging from P499 to P999 a month come with a free LTE pocket WiFi, giving you a faster and more enjoyable surfing experience.
Sun Non-Stop Surf Plans
Despite only having a limited selection, Sun Non-Stop Surf Plans are still worth looking into especially if you want to enjoy unlimited internet surfing, streaming, and downloading.
The cheapest plan costs P450, and it comes with 1.5 GB for browsing, email, chat, and social media. It has another 1 GB for streaming and downloading. You also get free access for three months to 1 GB of Spinnr.
The Non-Stop Surf Plan 699 has the same inclusions, but it has a higher data limit for streaming and downloading at 2.5 GB.
Sun broadband plans are a bit pricier, but they allow you to enjoy unlimited data. Once you use up your free data allocation, you will be charged a P0.50 per MB.
For the Cheapskate: Smart Bro Plan 299
At only P299 a month, the Smart Bro Plan 299 is perfect for people with a very tight budget but still want the freedom to browse their social media accounts, watch videos, and check their emails wherever they are.
Imagine just shelling out less than P300 a month for your data plan. That’s just P10 a day for a generous 3.5 GB of monthly data!
For Internet Without Limits: Sun Non-Stop Surf Plan 450
But if you’re the type of person who doesn’t want to be bothered with a data cap, you can get the Sun Non-Stop Surf Plan 450.
For less than P500, you can enjoy 2.5 GB of data for free. You also don’t have to worry about suddenly losing your data connection.
However, take note that you might end up paying more once you exceed your free limit because Sun will charge you P0.50 per MB on top of your monthly service fee.
For Value for Money: Smart Bro Plan 499
But among all these broadband plans, the Smart Bro Plan 499 gives you the most bang for your buck.
Only costing less than P500 a month, it already provides you with a hefty 6 GB of monthly data allocation, plus free access to entertainment sites like iflix, iWantTV, and UFC Fight Pass. You also get a speedy connection because of the free LTE pocket WiFi that comes with it.
