    1. Solution to prevent being throttled to slow network speed is to register to Big Bytes. Once you received a text from Smart notifying you that you have already consumed 800MB data, you only need to register to a Big Byte promo to revert your internet network speed to normal. It did not mention the denomination, so we prefer the cheapest one, the Big Byte for PhP5. To do this, send BIG5 to 9999 and wait for the confirmation then restart your modem and voila, your internet speed should be back to normal even if you have consumed the 5MB data from BigBytes and your Surfmax promo is not yet expired.

    2. Solution is to register to their SurfMaxPLUS promo using a Jump-In SIM card. Do not use SmartBro or KickStart Sim, these two are very strict when it comes to capping. They are so much updated with your internet data usage.

    3. Solution is to register to their SurfMax promo using a KickStart Data SIM. If ever Smart notified you with the 800MB limit, turn off your modem for 30 mins and reconnect after that 30 mins. But most probably, Smart will not send notification using this SIM and this promo.

    4. Solution is to restart your modem/broadband stick once you receive the 800MB usage notification. By turning your modem off, you allow it to change its IP connection and thus giving you a chance to get a nonthrottled IP. This works with KickStart Data SIMs.

    5. Solution is to download more than 1GB files when you are enrolled in the promo and never mind the notification that you have used the 800MB data. If your download speed is maintained after you receive the notification, then say "My SIM is Great!" This works with some Jump-In SIMs but not all the time. So, try at your own risk.

    Note: I cannot guarantee that all these tricks will work to prevent your SIM from being throttled once you have consumed the 800MB data. It's effectiveness is a case-to-case basis. Your location/area is a determinant of its success as well as the SIM you are using. Since Smart is still in the process of upgrading their system, once or twice you will encounter a glitch in their network. You might even use their one day promo for more than a week, or you might end up not being able to connect to the internet even if you have just registered to the promo.

    Question lang po...
    Pag ba na reach na ung capping na 800mb
    Bumabalik po ba yun kinabukasan pag na throttle na?
  12. boss. lahat ba ng big bytes pang 1day lang? plano ko kasi ung weekly na surfmax gawin ko..
    so ibig sabihin ba nun daily rin ako mag bbypass ng big5?

    ano pati kaibahan ng SURFMAXPLUS at SURFMAX?
