Smart is again cheaper in all Plan 999 and All-In Plan 1200 variants while Globe is cheaper in the Plan 2499 category and cheaper in 2 variants of the plan 1799.

These comparisons are done based on the actual plans and their respective cash outs as announced by both Smart and Globe. Other things to consider are airtime, SMS, data, and more. ¬†Take note that for Globe, they do not offer “unlimited” mobile data anymore so that’s a factor to consider. For Smart, All month surfing is still on and we’ve unofficially heard that they will still continue to offer unlimited data on “non-streaming” sites. In short, as long as you’re just surfing the net, it’s still unlimited. The allocation, according to our source (unofficial) will only count on streaming, downloads etc.

Another offer to consider is the 0% interest on amortized acquisitions. For Smart, if you are on Plan 3000, retention/ upgrade fee is waived for iPhone 6 64GB and iPhone 6 plus 16GB for the meantime, according to Smart. If you really just want an iPhone from either the telco, the cheapest prepaid unit is from Smart at 36,700 for the iPhone 6 16GB, 42,300 for the 64GB and 48,000 for the 128GB.
