Comparing Prepaid Data Plans from Globe, Smart and Sun

Recently I have been thinking about those minor differences when it comes to subscribing to a data plan here in the country. So far we're fortunate that we have lots of options but apparently, it takes some discerning as to what to subscribe to given the situation.

I have been in several instances wherein, I was at the beach with friends for 3 days. I would be getting a better deal if I subscribed into an unlimited data for 3 days rather than 1 day and resubscribe every time. Thinking about my consumption, since I didnt bring my laptop then (hey, it was Boracay!) the only thing I do with my iPhone was to check my mail and check in to 4square. Maybe an MB based subscription might be better.

On a recent trip, I was on the road going to the beach (again) but this time I have with me my laptop with the intention of squeezing in some work during the long travel time. I opted to subscribe for a 1 day unlimited since I knew for a fact that I would't be working on the way back.

So upon rummaging through the websites of our favorite telcos, I sorted the mobile dataplan for each. One is for MB based (currently sorted by the allocated MB) you may also cross reference it for the cost/MB ratio if you're getting a good deal.



Another, comparing the unlimited data plans. I sorted them according to the number of days you would be needing to be online. Again I also provided a column for cost/day ratio which you could try to pick if its just right for you.



Take note that these plans are for PREPAID sims only. I also did not include the hourly plan of Sun which doesnt really coincide with the MB chart.
