Smart gives free roaming data for Pinoys in Ukraine

Amid the growing tension between Ukraine and Russia, Smart Communications Inc., the wireless arm of telco giant PLDT, offered free roaming data assistance for Filipinos in Ukraine.

“It is important to equip them with services to help them communicate and access information, especially during times of crisis,” said PLDT Inc. and Smart Communications president and CEO.

“We are also praying for their safety as they await repatriation or evacuation,” he added, noting that Smart is closely monitoring the situation in the conflict-hit country and ready to extend more help for Filipinos there.

Smart said it’s giving free 1GB GigaRoam data valid for five days to around 1,000 roaming customers in Ukraine to help them contact their families and friends.
