Smart Surf Abroad 550 lets you enjoy worry-free data roaming in 110 countries

You can now make the most of your overseas getaways and experience the Smart Life in over 110 countries thanks to the new Surf Abroad 550, a data roaming package from Smart Communications.

Now, you can stay online while traveling abroad without the worries of "bill shock."

Initially available to all Smart postpaid subscribers for PhP 550 per day, Surf Abroad 550 promises worry-free data roaming experience with automatic registration and network lock feature.

"Nowadays, mobile Internet - or the lack of it - can make or break a vacation abroad, what with many practical mobile apps and valuable information available online - from news, weather, navigation, flight schedules, and accommodation to must-have apps like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter," said Smart Global Access and International Services Head Tina Mariano.

She added, "So aside from expanding our coverage from 57 countries last year to over 110 countries now, we have also enhanced Surf Abroad 550 to be a lot easier, convenient, and totally bill shock-free."

Surf Abroad 550 now has automatic registration, which means you simply have to turn on your mobile data setting to enjoy online connectivity at your destination - no more need to key in special codes, register via text, or call the hotline. Once the service is active, you will also get timely notifications so you're completely informed of your subscription.

Surf Abroad 550 is also powered by network-lock technology, which automatically steers and locks your phone onto Smart's roaming partner-networks, eliminating the hassle of having to manually select every time. With this feature in place, you won't have to worry about incurring unwanted charges and "bill shock" when you return from your vacation.

"There's no doubt Smart Surf Abroad 550 has got to be one of your top travel essentials to have a truly awesome trip and take the Smart Life experience abroad," said Mariano.
