A lot of people know the usual Smile data packages that we have covered in a different article, but they have never experienced Smile Unlimited data plans. In this article, we would explore Smile Unlimited data packages in terms of speed, data plans and data sizes.
What does it mean to be Unlimited?
People confuse the term “Unlimited data” a lot. While certain advanced networks offer truly unlimited data, others do not. Unlimited means there is no cap on your data usage i.e. you are not buying 2GB or 200GB worth of data. You are buying uncapped internet access.
However, internet speed or Mbps (megabits per second) is what defines unlimited plans. Logically, the more you use data, the slower it would get. This is a measure to stop heavy downloaders from clogging the network. Imagine downloading 2GB worth of data per day?
With Smile Unlimited Platinum, subscribers get to enjoy speed up to 6Mbps and no throttling of data speeds. Depending on what you do with data, this package is truly unlimited. Now let’s look at the plans.
