Smart Communications, one of the Philippines’ biggest telecommunications companies alongside Globe Telecom, has announced a limited-edition SIM card for prepaid users, and the product offers 24GB of non-expiring data you can use for all websites and apps.

Dubbed the Smart Magic SIM, the SIM card with 24GB of data is priced at P399 (around $8 converted) and can access up to 5G speeds provided you own a compatible 5G smartphone and you are in an area with 5G coverage.

Smart Magic is somewhat like the Globe-powered GOMO SIM that was launched last year, except on Smart’s network. And a bit more expensive; a GOMO SIM bundled with 30GB of data normally costs P349 ($7), but can be bought cheaper in many cases. However, take note that if Smart’s signal is better at your place, it’s still more prudent to purchase this one.

You can now buy a Smart Magic SIM from the Smart Online Store, the telco’s official brand shop on Lazada, and GrabMart. If you need more non-expiring data, simply link your number to Smart’s GigaLife app and get additional Magic Data credits within the app.

If you’re a prepaid user and you don’t subscribe to data packages often, this should be welcome news to you. Otherwise, you may want to stick with your existing mobile number and avoid the hassle of switching SIM cards. Then again, you can always have both, don’t you think? Plus non-expiring data is the way to go and should be considered standard across all telcos.
