Smart continues postpaid growth in Q1 2013


Smart continues its march forward in the local wireless race. The telco grew its postpaid subscriber base by 24% in the first quarter of 2013 versus the same period last year. This gets them a step further in this very hotly contested segment of local telecommunications.

To push this lead even firther, Smart will be offering a whole new set of postpaid deals called Flexibundles, allowing subscribers more control of their cellular spending through a simple set of steps.

“These Flexibundles give Smart Postpaid subscribers greater control over their plans, enabling them to design their plans to suit their specific needs.  And they can do this in a way that is easy to understand and simple to use,” said Orlando B. Vea, co-founder and Chief Wireless Advisor of Smart.

Options include unlimited SMS and call combos, tri- and all-net packages, volume-based data plans and other options. To avail of the packets, Postpaid subscribers need only register via SMS. These buckets are available to users of all Smart All-In plans, Unlimited Data Plans, iPhone Plans, Unli Postpaid, Plan 349, Freedom Plan, and the Family Circle Plans.

“We are keen to keep growing our postpaid business because this is how we can help unlock the potential of mobile data and make it more relevant and more beneficial to our subscribers,” Vea added.
