What You Should Know About the 9mobile Data Smart Paks

Outside of its standard data plans, 9mobile also offers something it calls smartpaks. They are data packages exclusive to social media apps and video streaming platforms. So, if you wish to stay up to date with online gist and friends without necessarily buying a data plan, they are worth considering.

The packages are equally different in categorization from the data plans. While those are classified based exclusively on monthly, weekly, and daily duration, 9mobile’s smartpaks are also classified by hours. Ultimately, there are four smartpak packages – chat pak, social me pak, video pak, and special paks.

Chat Pak

This smartpak package is for WhatsApp and WeChat users and applies to chat only. It means you cannot send multimedia files or download videos with it. This package also limits access to apps’ functionality, but you get to stay up to date with loved ones through basic chat. It is available in daily, weekly, and monthly options.

Social Me Pak
