After being able to experience amazing LTE connection on my iPhone, I must admit that I became dependent on it. Imagine –> blazing fast speeds! I couldn’t get over how I can achieve almost 40MBPS! It was just unbelievable! Too bad, the free Smart LTE access will only last until June 30, 2013 for my iPhone 5.
But, Smart just released something better! They introduced two iPad plans that are affordable! The good news here is…. it includes Smart LTE connectivity (up to 42MBPS speeds FTW!) for 24 months! You read it right – 24 months or 2 years!
When news broke out 2 weeks ago, I checked out the plans and I must say that they are tempting. I love how the iPad plans were well-thought of.
The iPad Plan 499 and iPad Plan 999 are both available for iPad 4 and the iPad Mini. I chose the iPad Mini to test as I already bought the iPad 3 last year. I realized that the size of iPad Mini is perfect especially for people who are mobile. It’s 20% thinner and 50% lighter than the regular-sized iPad. Big difference if you ask me.
Five Reasons Why I Love the new Smart LTE iPad Mini
Let me countdown 5 reasons why it got my attention:
- LTE, LTE & LTE! – Smart has the widest LTE coverage in the country. I think I’m spoiled in a way that I cannot stand normal DSL speed anymore. With LTE, one can experience speeds of up to 42Mbps.
- Affordable Plans – Plan 499 for 65 hours of connectivity and Plan 999 for unlimited 3G/LTE connectivity.
- Big Discounts – You’ll get Php 8,000 discount on iPad Mini if you avail of the iPad Plan 999. Meanwhile, you can get the iPad Mini at 0% interest for 24 months if you avail of the iPad Plan 499.
- Anti-Bill Shock Protection – this one is my favorite benefit from Smart’s iPad plan. If you’re on iPad Plan 499 and you end up going over the plan limit, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Even if you end up using Php 1,500 worth of data connection, Smart will only charge you a maximum of Php 999! This is perfect for people who are not heavy users of mobile data but can sometimes go over their plan limit occasionally.
- Freebies! – you’ll get a neopreene iPad sleeve, discount vouchers of up to 20% on accessories, 2 tickets to digital lifestyle sessons at Smart Jump Center and best priced insurance against theft & accidental loss & damage when you purchase your iPad and iPad plans from Smart.
The Smart LTE iPad Mini Plans
The #GetMini Mania Event
Lastly, if you’re convinced, you might wanna block off time on either June 8 or June 9, 2013. It’s because Smart is having a #GetMini Mania event this weekend at Shangri-La Mall.
The 2-day event will be about selling discounted iPad Plans! It’s an event you shouldn’t miss especially if you’re getting an iPad plan powered by Smart LTE. For Plan 499, you’ll get the iPad Mini at 0% interest for 24 months and for Plan 999? You’ll get the iPad Mini at Php 9,000 off! How cool is that?
