Smart Announces its iPad 4 and iPad Mini LTE Plans

If you have held off this long from buying an iPad 4 or an iPad Mini, with wifi and 4G, you may no longer do so once you check out Smart's new LTE plans for both devices.

At a press briefing at Smart's Jump Center inside SM Megamall's Cyberzone, the LTE postpaid plans were unveiled.

The best thing about all these plans? Smart is slicing off a whopping P8,000 discount on all postpaid plans on Plan 999. The 16GB iPad Mini, for example, is only P13,990 (after discount). The 64GB retina iPad 4 is only P31,990.

On the other hand, Plan 499 carries an anti bill shock feature. After the free first 65 hours of internet connection, it defaults to the P10/30minutes charging. But when your bill reaches P999, you will be shifted to unlimited surfing. So no matter how long you surf, you only pay a maximum of P999 a month.

Here is a synopsis of the plans (taken from Smart's website):

iPad Mini



* Plan 999 subscriptions on a 24-month lock-in period come with unlimited 3G/4G/SmartLTE usage monthly and a charge of P999 a month (until service is terminated) on top of a one-time payment for the device made in cash or using a credit card with option for a 12-mo interest-free installment with participating credit cards.


*Plan 499 subscriptions on a 24-month lock-in period come with 65hrs of 3G/4G/SmartLTE usage monthly and a charge of P499 a month (until service is terminated) on top of one-time payment or option to pay in 24 months amortization for the device. 

Anti Bill Shock Feature: Beyond the 65 hours, default charging is P10/30 minutes until you reach a maximum amount of P999 a month. Upon reaching P999, you will already be able to do unlimited surfing.
