How to Overcome the 800MB Limit of Smart's Surfmax Promo?

Smart Communications has stopped their LTE promos (i.e. LTE50 and Unlisurf) last October 31, 2015. These were replaced with the new SURFMAX and SURFMAXPLUS promos. Same speed, same denominations, BUT with limits. According to their Surfmax guidelines, the promo allows subscribers to enjoy all day surfing up to 800MB/day at optimal speeds and once this is consumed, all day surfing services will still be active but connection quality may vary until 12 midnight. There you go, sounds familiar with Globe's Fair Usage Policy (FUP), eh? So, nothing is unlimited now in the Philippines. We live more with limits? Internet should be a wide universe with no boundaries, we are paying for it so, we should get the best out of it!

Smart offers the following denominations for their new Surfmax promos:
Surfmax, Surfmaxplus denominations, validity, keyword, bypass, limit

The Surfmax promo is available for Smart Postpaid, Prepaid and Smart Bro users. Better use the SurfmaxPlus if you are in an LTE-covered area and your internet device is an LTE-capable one to ensure that you have the fastest internet speed.


How to Overcome the 800MB Limit of Smart's SurfMax and SurfMaxPlus?
We are all very disappointed with this new restriction in their internet promo, right? But Smart provided us a solution to get past their 800MB bandwidth limit usage. As stated in their guidelines:
Upon reaching their Smart SurfMax daily limit, subscribers may also switch to any Smart Big Bytes offering to continue enjoying optimal speeds. For a complete list of Smart Big Bytes packages, they may also visit www.smart.com.ph/pages/bigbytes.
So, the number 1 solution to prevent being throttled to slow network speed is to register to Big Bytes. Once you received a text from Smart notifying you that you have already consumed 800MB data, you only need to register to a Big Byte promo to revert your internet network speed to normal. It did not mention the denomination, so we prefer the cheapest one, the Big Byte for PhP5. To do this, send BIG5 to 9999 and wait for the confirmation then restart your modem and voila, your internet speed should be back to normal even if you have consumed the 5MB data from BigBytes and your Surfmax promo is not yet expired.

For Talk 'N Text users, you can send BIG5 to 4545. You can also register to SAMPLE to 4545.

Number 2 solution is to register to their SurfMaxPLUS promo using a Jump-In SIM card. Do not use SmartBro or KickStart Sim, these two are very strict when it comes to capping. They are so much updated with your internet data usage.

Number 3 solution is to register to their SurfMax promo using a KickStart Data SIM. If ever Smart notified you with the 800MB limit, turn off your modem for 30 mins and reconnect after that 30 mins. But most probably, Smart will not send notification using this SIM and this promo.

Number 4 solution is to restart your modem/broadband stick once you receive the 800MB usage notification. By turning your modem off, you allow it to change its IP connection and thus giving you a chance to get a nonthrottled IP. This works with KickStart Data SIMs.

Number 5 solution is to download more than 1GB files when you are enrolled in the promo and never mind the notification that you have used the 800MB data. If your download speed is maintained after you receive the notification, then say "My SIM is Great!" This works with some Jump-In SIMs but not all the time. So, try at your own risk.

Number 6 solution is to resend the promo code once your speed is throttled. Just resend the SURFMAX promo code to 9999 or 2200 even if you do not have enough load. Just ignore the insufficient load balance notification and restart your device. You can also use the SmartBro dashboard to register to SURFMAX. When you do this, make sure that you DO NOT have load greater than PhP49.

Update December 8, 2015: All SURFMAX users, expiration in this promo is until every 11:59PM. So I suggest you register after 11:59PM, i.e. 12:01AM, to have your subscription last for two days. Example, you register in Dec.8, 2015 12:01AM, your expiration will be on Dec 9, 2015, 11:59PM. That's two days for the price of PhP50.

Alternative for Unlimited Internet Without Limit
Instead of subscribing to SurfMax, subscribe to UnliSurf. Though Smart have announced that Unlisurf is no longer available, this promo is still available in your retailer store's SmartLoad Menu. You don't need to keywords to register, you only need to go to your suking tindahan and ask the SmartLoad retailer to load your Smart SIM with UnliSurf. They can also load your SIM by texting UNLI50 (your number) and send to 4122.

Disclaimer: I cannot guarantee that all these tricks will work to prevent your SIM from being throttled once you have consumed the 800MB data. It's effectiveness is a case-to-case basis. Your location/area is a determinant of its success as well as the SIM you are using. Since Smart is still in the process of upgrading their system, once or twice you will encounter a glitch in their network. You might even use their one day promo for more than a week, or you might end up not being able to connect to the internet even if you have just registered to the promo.

Try at your own discretion.

  3. well im wondering, since a few days now surfmax50 seems to be unlimited for me cus i left my pc on trough the night to download DOTA 2 onto my new steam account it was 6.9GB download and when i woke up it fully downloaded plus im still getting 15Mbps to 25Mbps down and uplo speed. its ironic cus im waiting for globes Shitty
    (UP TO 5Mbps )line for 1599 pesos with a 50 Gb data cap per month... they have been letting me wait 2 weeks now... plus they had the audacity to let me come back to their outlet 3 times for stupid reasons like forgetting to let me sign somthing. so if im unli on 50Pesos a day with speeds up to 30Mbps why pay 99 pesos more a month for crapy 1 to 5 Mbps with a 50 Gb datacap? if this keeps on being unli for me I will tell Globe to go have a nice day....

    your right, here in Davao City, SurfmaxPlus is not available, the registration code here was Surfmax 50 sent to 2200.. It was already for 3g, 4g and LTE base on your sim and modem. I'm using SmartBro LTE Pocket Wifi and My internet speed can reach at least 13Mbps, not bad for LTE, at first, the said 800mb limit was blocked my connection after I've reached it, I was so pissed off and planned to apply a landline internet. But suddenly since I haven't applied yet and days have been passed, I tried to register again using my pocket Wifi. I was amazed because I've reached 1gb but still my connection is good. I tried to download an ISO file about 1.5Gb and still it was completed using my IDM, I was thinking that it was a glitch or something like system error from smart, but I've experienced it every time I've registered so I think smart fixed it, In fact, right now my Download Capacity was already reached 3.8Gb and I am still downloading with a good connection :) well nice job for Smart I am relieved :)

    3. When you're using SMART [BRO] LTE Sim ang pwede lang dito is yung "Surfmax", pag SMART Prepaid LTE Sim pwede dito both "Surfmax" and "SurfmaxPLUS". That's based on my experience, kasi dati naka Smart Bro Pocket wifi ako with SMART Bro LTE Sim (color pink/fuchsia pink) triny ko magregister ng "SurfmaxPLUS 299" kasi sabi ni Smart "All-day LTE" yung may PLUS, nagreply ang smart na "Promo is not available..." so triny ko yung "Surfmax 299" pumasok siya. After nun, bumili ako ng SMART Prepaid LTE Sim (color white as in plain white with Smart logo) kasi ginamit ko sa phone ko, ayun nakapagregister naman ako ng "SurfmaxPlus 299". :)

  5. Same thing here in the Visayas. I received the text the very first time I went over 800mb the first week of November, then was unable to connect to the internet the rest of the day. But the last two weeks, I haven't received any texts and I'm using between 1.5 to 3 gigs a day. Maybe they listened to their customer base after the first couple weeks of this thing?

  7. Personally, I wouldn't torrent using the current surfmax promo, unless you're using a reliable VPN. Otherwise, that activity can be easily identified as torrenting and your sim could be banned and locked out.

  8. sir ask ko lang po... bakit yung skin ni reg ko sa surfmax 200.. sa umaga 25 mbps pagdating ng 6pm gang gabi n un 2 mbps lng at bumababa pa... ala ba caping yun..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ganyan naman talaga ang smart noon pa man, depende kasi yan sa dami ng users, diba nga yun ang reason nila kung bakit nag lagay sila ng DATA CAP para ma limitahan yung mga tao na wagas kung mag download tulad ko. Pero at least kahit papano eh inalis nila,

      alam mo, mas mabuti na yung bumabagsak sa 2mbps kaysa naman maging 3G ang connection mo or ma block talaga, kasi experience ko dati nung ma reached ko ang DATA CAP eh sa speed test ng 3G eh 0.45mbps lang... TOINKS :)

      Delete
  9. update here in Davao City, Hey guys! listen up :) I tried to reach the current capacity data of Smart but I've reach 8gb already and still i am not blocked, then until my registration was expired. I was amazed because Surfmax is better than Unlisurf, because the Unlisurf promo have only at least 3gb and your connection will become 3g...

  40. Smart and Globe are trying to set the pricing on US and European levels, the problem with that is this, The Philippines cable infrastructure is 20 years behind the said continents. I think the 800mb cap is totally based on their crap infrastructure or lack of it. Until the philippines builds its own backbone interconnecting the main islands, it wont get any better. The economy is dependent on the cable getting better. The question is who is going to invest $50bn plus to create the modern infrastructure that is badly needed?????? On the basis of the current laws around foreign investment, NONE.... Investment laws need to change rapidly, retaining intellectual property is more valuable than ownership of companies willing to improve the country.....

    1. Not in my case. Nag-SURFMAX995 din ako, thinking minsan ko lang need mag-BIG5 dahil indi naman ako nagto-torrent or video streaming. Puro browsing and YouTube lang, eh since madami akong ipon na BigBytes from previous loading, indi apektado dapat. Pero wala, lumalagpas pa rin ng 800mb dahil tatlo or apat kami gumagamit minsan. Smart is a really f*ked up telco. So umaabot ng P80/day sa BigBytes pa lang. Mas mahal pa kung tutuusin kesa sa postpaid. Wala pa kasi nung Globe Platinum dito sa area namin, otherwise sulit yung P2,500/mo plan nila na 50mbps, no data cap

  60. Paano hindi masasara yang butas, eh coolchura.blogspot is one of the top Google search results when you search for "bypass Smart data cap" or other similar queries. Kung kaya natin basahin ang tips, kaya rin ng Smart. That's why I keep saying blogs like this should be for limited reading only. Or gawa na lang ng email newsletter to selected people, by-invitation only. Para siguradong kilala ng kakilala mo yung maiimbitahan. If Smart/Globe both feel that open info like this will cause them to lose revenue, the loopholes will be plugged. Ganun ka-asshole ang Philippine telcos.

    3. pag nagpuputol putol po ang connection nyo, I think nasa area kayo ng nagpapalit palit lagi ng IP. naexperience ko na yan dati, yung tipong every 10 mins e mamumula ang wifi at magrereconnect ulit. That's normal. Monitor nyo po if laging nagpapalit ang IP, that may be the cause.

    3. So i've confirmed it, last with my smart bro sim and now with my jump sim. All surfmax 50 now expires 24 hrs from the time u registerered. All he tricks had been prevented because smart's been monitoring this website so thats why i never leave a comment for hacks and tricks to overcome the 800mb limit,this is my second comment since last night, i was so disappointed with smart for discontinuing the surfmax 50 promo for 2 days, and come to think of it 50 pesos for 24 hrs only is a bit overpriced.smart should revise it. Smart is getting greedy. Its also our fault beause we live it out in the open those tricks and tips for all we know smarts been reading it too... So for now theres nothig we can do, just lessen the use of internet i guess...

  98. I have a friend working on Smart. Yup, they're watching for bugs to bypass the FUP/limits on their promos and personally they don't like to plug the gaps kasi sila din affected (surprised nga ako nung kwinento niya dati na may mga taga-Smart na heavy users na naiinis minsan sa 800 mb limit ng Surfmax, iba nga nagpakabit na lang ng broadband eh, kasi ito lang source of Internet nila sa bahay) pero no choice kailangan sundin yung management: baka raw mabawasan ng revenue si Smart eh. I have to remain anonymous kasi plano kasi ako ipasok ng friend ko dun.

  99. anyone experiencing this?

    https://deuts.net/2015/09/28/the-smart-bro-flexitime-data-minutes-that-deplete-faster-than-real-use/


    TLDR version:
    Smartbro Flexitime minutes depletes faster than the real minutes you are using. I've been having this problem since last year but I ignored it because I seldom register to Flexitime. But since the BUG of bypassing 800mb limit is no longer working, I tried using the flexitime today since it did not mention about any limit/cap. The only reason I registered is because I needed to download a 1.6GB file and I have the file now so I can verify that they did not put a cap on this promo. I registered to 15hrs(900mins) of data for 7 days of internet for P100 and I only used around 103 minutes of the service and now I am only left with only 688minues! WHAT THE HELL SMART?

    ReplyDelete
  100. To Smart: bakit niyo inalis ang kaisa-isang bagay na nagbigay sa inyo ng lamang kay Globe, ang pagkakaroon ng unlimited Internet promos. Hindi ko gets bakit pareho kayo ni Globe nangungurakot sa inyong mga consumers kung kailan may paparating na pangatlong competitor, si Telstra. Since first time kaming nagkaInternet noong 2007, Smartbro ang family namin, mga panahong di pa uso ang Wifi, dalawang Internet stick sa bahay salit-salitan kami, yung bagal tiniis namin kasi unlimited naman pero sobra naman na ata kung may capping or throttling na di naman ganun kagenerous (800 MB, seryoso? Kung gusto niyo maglagay ng ganyan, pde na siguro mga 2.5 or 3 GB per day, tutal original daily policy niyo naman yan eh). Alisin niyo na lang yung free FB, Spotify, Youtube and other churva, baka yan yung kumakain ng bandwidth niyo eh kaya di kinakaya ang unlimited for customers who paid for it! Isang buwan na lang si Surfmax, tapusin niyo na, we want Unlisurf back! Pag nangyari yan, willing ako magpaload ng 1000 for 30 days Internet or 50/100 araw-araw, basta unlimited ang service, walang capping or throttling.

    ReplyDelete
  104. This is my 3rd conment. SMART ang BOBO nyo! Di ba kayo nag iisip? The BigBytes bug was extra income for u, just imagine all subscribers adding bigbytes to their existing surfmax subscription, thats big income. You stopped the bigbytes bug so wla kayong extra income. Ngayon bababa ang sales nyo cause you took the surfmax50 2 day expiration. You want to earn more income ibalik nyo ang bigbytes bug. Kayo na ang nag calculate sa system nyo kung ilang subscribers ang mag add ng bigbytes sa existing surfmax subscription.
