Everything You Need to Know About SmileVoice Calls and Airtime

In a previous article where we covered everything about Smile 4G data, we promised we would do the same for SmileVoice calls and airtime. The thing is, Smile is known for data services, but not everyone knows you can equally use Smile for voice calls just like you do with local airtime networks in Nigeria.

You can use your Smile 4G data bundle for voice calls and SMS to anyone, anywhere in the world from your mobile phone using SmileVoice App or a Smile SIM inserted into a compatible voLTE phone.

SmileVoice service assigns you a +234-70- mobile number which you can call and receive calls with. When traveling abroad, you don’t need to roam the line as it can be used over any local WiFi but international charges would apply. However, Smile-to-Smile calls are absolutely free no matter where you are. That’s way cool!

How SmileVoice calls are charged.

SmileVoice is charged in MBs to Anytime and SmileLite data plans. For example, if you are using a 10GB Anytime (12-month) plan and you make a one-minute local call, you will be charged 10.76MBs from your data plan, which equates to ₦8.22. That in effect is a call rate of 13.7k/sec. For SmileVoice ONLY plan offers the cheapest rate of 13.3k/sec.

The table below shows MBs per minute that is deducted from your active data plan which equates to a k/sec rate:

How Unlimited is Smile Unlimited data plans?

https://www.jbklutse.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/smile.jpg

Smile Telecoms remains one of the largest sub-1 GHz 4G LTE commercial networks in Africa, operating in the “future proof’ low band, 800 MHz band, and mid-band. The company is physical in five major African countries but operating in over 50 countries.

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.

Smile Unlimited data plans

UnlimitedLite: This plan goes for N10,230 and is valid for 30 days. Now available in Asaba, Abuja, Benin, Ibadan, Lagos, Port Harcourt, Onitsha and Kaduna, this is the least of the unlimited plans. UnlimitedLite has a data speed of up to 8Mbps. That will reduce once 25GB data has been used. A customer may recharge with another unlimited plan to bring data speeds back to 8Mbps.

Unlimited Essential: With N15,350 you can get this data plan for a 30 days validity period. The plan allows you to use 50% data during the day and 50% at night. Great if you keep late-night online periods. Night usage commences from midnight to 6AM. Data speed of up to 8Mbps will reduce once 30GB data has been used, either during the day or night.

Unlimited Premium: Premium cost N20,270 for a period of 30 days. This plan has no data limits up to 3Mpbs. With the premium version, you have 4 Mbit/s until you reach 80GB of usage.

UnlimitedPlatinum: The Platinum plan was recently launched. This plan goes for N24,000 for a period of 30 days. The Unlimited Platinum ensures that customers enjoy super-fast, super reliable internet for as long as they want by offering data speed of up to 6Mbps, with no data, with no throttling of data speed.
