Smart offers satellite devices at zero-percent payment plans

Securing a satellite device for disaster response, business continuity or for personal use is now a lot easier and more affordable as leading mobile services provider Smart Communications has rolled out zero-percent installment plans for the XT Lite and SATSleeve Hotspot, two of the world’s top satellite solutions.

Touted as the world’s best-value satellite phone, the XT Lite is a compact and user-friendly device that lets users make calls and send messages in areas beyond the coverage of terrestrial networks.

On the other hand, the SATSleeve Hotspot allows users to turn their smartphones into a satellite device via an app, and enjoy reliable coverage for calls, texts, email and popular apps in remote locations.

Smart, the only mobile network that provides satellite solutions in the Philippines, offers the XT Lite and SATSleeve Hotspot for only P38,500 each, inclusive of USD120 worth of satellite services valid for one year. 

With zero-percent easy payment plans, users can now avail the XT Lite and the SatSleeve Hotspot from Smart at only P6,416 per month for 6 months or at only Php3,208 per month for 12 months.

Smart offers these devices under its partnership with Thuraya, a Dubai-based world-leading satellite communications company which provides extensive and robust satellite network coverage in two-thirds of the world, or across 160 countries in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Africa.

“Over the past years, we have seen extreme scenarios in the Philippines that highlighted the importance of having satellite connectivity as a reliable means of communication. Indeed, it has become a vital need for government offices, businesses and organizations that need to mobilize and sustain operations especially in the face of emergencies and disaster situations,” said Smart World head Tina Z. Mariano.

“With our easy payment plans for XT Lite and SATSleeve Hotspot, we are making these satellite devices more accessible and easier to avail so that organizations, companies and individuals may enjoy the security and assurance of having a back-up or enhanced mobile coverage,” she added.

Aside from extreme scenarios, users may rely on XT Lite and SATSleeve Hotspot to enjoy uninterrupted communications in far-flung areas, such as when climbing the mountains, sailing at sea or aboard an airplane, as well as when traveling abroad.

Smart offers the XT Lite and SATSleeve Hotspot at Smart Stores nationwide. For more information about the devices and the available satellite services, please visit
