SmartNet reaches 320,000 users


After its recent victory with the prestigious Innovation Award at the 2012 Asia Communications Awards, Smart reaches another milestone as SmartNet now has over 320,000 registered users as of end of June.

 “We are now growing at a rate of over 23,000 new users every week,” shared Smart Head of Products Gio Bacareza. “Breaking down that figure, over 3,000 more people are enjoying SmartNet’s brilliant services every week, he added.”

SmartNet is an online platform that enables users to communicate with fellow SmartNet users through chat, search and add contacts from the cloud and check on their social network accounts.

SmartNet was launched September last year, debuting as the technology behind the Smart Netphone 701. It  has been up for free on Google Play! since February and has recently been made available on the Apple App Store. As an effort to reach more smartphone users, Smart has submitted a Windows edition to the Microsoft Windows Marketplace, but it has yet to be approved.

“We expect even better numbers once we open up SmartNet to more smartphone users,” Bacareza said. “Best of all, SmartNet services are free to use on Smart’s network until December 31, 2012,” he added.
