New customers can order UnlimitedPremium plus SMiFi or UnlimitedPremium plus Router online and pay with their credit card for delivery to their doorsteps. Alternatively, they can visit any Smile outlet where they are assured of best in class customer service, the statement added.
The UnlimitedPremium plan is valid for 30 days .The plan will be available to all new and existing Smile customers and is ideal for the whole family.
