Smart recently just announced their new “Always On” Â mobile internet packages.
For the amazing price of P300 for 30 days!
The catch here is, it is not time based – not unlimited usage for 30 days. Â Instead, you will be given 250MB to use for that whole 30 days.
I don’t track my mobile internet usage but that made me really think of what my actual internet mobile usage is.
First of all, I use internet at home when possible or Wifi spots when I’m out. Â So what I do when I’m mobile is:
- check emails
- Google stuff like restaurant numbers or location
- plurk, foursquare, tweet and facebook
- Check the social media accounts I manage (I use Seesmic for mobile)
- chat on fring / instant message
- maybe blog sometimes
It differs for everyone and my mobile activity might be different from yours. Â If you want to track your mobile internet usage, you can download Traffic Monitor by RadioOpt GmbH. Â Or you can look it up on Android market as well. Â I’m not sure for iPhone, blackberry and Nokia.
In one day I used up only 6.6MB and that included: Gmail, Fring (Instant message) I even downloaded a 784kb app on Market, Facebook, Twitter, plurk… Â update the social media I manage..google.. and visited my blog (it’s mobile friendly :D)
But I had to disable photos on the internet just so that it won’t download too much bytes!!!
I say this plan is a great deal – easy on the pocket but still always on the go.
Just use wifi when you can – at home or at cafe/restaurants 🙂
