  1. D raw capped yung surfmax sabi ni trams :v ? so that means sinadya nila na pwede mabypass yung 800mb? Ano masasabi nyu mga kuys
    __________________________________________________________________________
    Technically SurfMax is not exactly capped. It’s throttled. This means that once you hit the 800MB allocation, we are still able to connect to the internet for the entire 24 hours of the subscription. Theoretically, your maximum potential data allocation is 800MB + (135kbps Edge speed x 24 hours) = 800MB + 1,458MB = 2.258GB per day.

    For the monthly (30 days) subscribers, that’s 24GB of optimal speeds plus 43.74GB of sub-optimal speeds.

    Smart’s decision to set the daily limit at 800MB is to ensure that mobile data users would not switch to Globe which already has an 800MB limit for prepaid users for many years.

    If a subscribers want to download more than 800MB of data in a single day at optimal speeds, they are allowed to subscribe to Smart’s Big Bytes plan which offers an additional 18GB of consumable data for Php2,500.

    To go around this, we suggest subscribing to Big Byte Plan 299 + Anti-Bill Shock 999 for a monthly service fee of Php1,298 to bypass the capping.


    It becomes pretty obvious that the switch from UnliSurf to SurfMax is a business move to upsell services to heavy data users. Smart’s parent company, PLDT, has had a slow year last year and almost negligible net profit this year (1% from recent investor reports). Hence, one of the potentially huge channel for revenue growth is in mobile data. Looks like PLDT/Smart is learning from Globe’s strategy that it has already put in place for a couple of years which is why they’re posting double-digit growth (14%) since last year.

    Palabas lang nila yan. Kapag ka nagamit mo na yung 800mb binabagalan na nila yung connection mo pero pwede ka pa ring makapag download.

  9. Last nov 5 lang ata inalis na unlisurf sa system sa area namin. Ewan ko sa iba kung meron pa.
    May napansin rin ako pag lte white sim gamit ko. Di fix ang ip. Di naman pinapatay ang modem. 10.159 o 10.141 naging 10.14. Baka kino control speed natin thru ip address kusa nag che change eh!

  10. In this case, meron talaga way para malampasan ang 800mb limit. at malamang na madaming glitches na makikita mga master natin dyan. Change promo pa more hahahahah
     
  11. Thanks sa info. Pero kahit noong Unlisurf pa basta 1GB na download mo babagal na yan. Strategy lang yan para yung mentality ng tao tipidin si 800mb. So its ok Smart is Smart. Ganito na talaga pinas. :sneaky:
     
  12. Yun nga ehh :v bumabagal minsan


    (y) :facepalm:


    Idol meron pa ata yung mga d naka update na mga loader baka meron pa silang unlisurf na option


    Tama! Isa kang henyong shinobi (y) pero yung point ko is sinabi nalang nilang promo :v pero glitch lang na d nila maayos ayos


    No problem Senpai (y) (y)
