Need more data out of your Smart GIGA package? Smart just launched new prepaid plans to cover you when you need mobile data the most. The telco’s GIGA Pro prepaid plans now offer much bigger data allocation at an affordable price.

For example, GIGA Pro 199 comes with 27GB of open data along with 3GB of data per day allocated on selected GIGA package. This is also valid for seven days so users can get the most out of their money.

Other GIGA Pro packages include:

  • GIGA Pro 599 — 12GB open data + 3GB per day allocated on selected GIGA package (valid for 15 days)
  • GIGA Pro 999 — 24GB open data + 3GB per day allocated on selected GIGA package (valid for 30 days)

Subscribers can select from different GIGA packages to suit their needs. GIGA Study Pro and GIGA Work Pro meet the demanding needs of students and professionals alike. On one hand, those who like to binge-watch their favorite episodes on the go or play mobile games for hours should choose GIGA Video Pro or GIGA Games Pro.
