SMART International Roaming Deposit is GONE... hooray we (the consumers) won!
I don't know when this happened but I am sure glad it did! SMART has gotten get rid of this discriminatory, anti-consumer, flat-out-unfair, exploitative International Roaming Deposit policy. I have written about this before (and some more) which culminated in me settling my balance and closing my account with SMART for good. Food for thought: were did the interest for all those deposits go? did they credit those back to customers as wellor did they spend it on Ramon Bautista's TF for this hilarious switching video?
This comes as good news for me personally because... I am re-evaluating my current mobile subscription with Globe and most of us (subscribers) would say that it has been shitty for months. Globe has scheduled network improvements thru Q4 2012 but who has the patience to wait? Now that SMART has done away with IRD, I can seriously consider their network again as my service provider.
