Smart subscriber base hits 65M as Sun is formally integrated

Sun Cellular said it has formally joined the PLDT family, adding 15 million subscribers to Smart’s existing subscriber base of 50 million.

Smart said Sun’s integration means that a Smart subscriber availing of the network’s Tri-net offers – promos that reduce call and text rates within the Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun circle – has been expanded to 65 million.

Among Smart’s promo packages is the Tri-Net 30 bundle which gives Smart prepaid subscribers 100 SMS to all networks, 5 MB worth of mobile Internet, and 50 call minutes to any Smart, Talk ‘N Text, or Sun number, valid for one day.

“Some people might ask, is bigger necessarily better? In Smart’s case, it is. With our Tri-net and similar offers, subscribers get more value for their hard-earned money,” said Smart mobile marketing head Guido Zaballero.

Also ongoing is the Trio 20 promo which provides prepaid subscribers of Smart and Talk ‘N Text with 15 call minutes and 200 SMS to any Smart, Talk ‘N Text, or Sun number for P20 a day.

Meanwhile, the Smart Sun Dual Plan 549 offers unlimited texts to Smart and Sun subscribers, two call hours to any Smart number, and four call hours to any Sun number. The monthly plan also comes with a free dual-SIM phone.
