Smart’s UNLI5G promos mean unlimited 5G data for 5G areas with no speed capping, with additional 2G/4G/LTE data which is available for non-5G areas. It is obvious that Globe unlimited 5G promos are way affordable, but there are more to consider, so let us look further into the promos’ requirements, coverage, and other features for clearer comparisons.
Unlimited 5G: SMART vs GLOBE Conditions
With regards to requirements and conditions when availing SMART or GLOBE UNLI 5G promos, both promos require having a 5G-certified gadget, a 5G-ready SIM, and to be in an area that supports 5G.
However, there are two additional conditions for GLOBE GO5G:
- You must be registered to any of the Go or Go+ data promos: Go90, Go120, Go140, Go250, and Go400 Go+99, Go+129, Go149+, Go+250, and Go+400
- You must have a sufficient load balance
Therefore, the lower prices of GLOBE UNLI 5G promos are only because you have to be registered to another promo. Considering this, SMART and GLOBE’s UNLI 5G prices are nearly the same.
Upon taking a look on coverage, SMART claims to have the widest 5G coverage in the country, with over 4,000 sites nationwide. GLOBE, on the other hand, has over 2,000 5G sites across Metro Manila and select areas in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

According to Ookla Speedtest Intelligence data from Q1-Q2 2021, SMART has the fastest average mobile download speed in the Philippines at median download speed of 190 Mbps, while GLOBE has an average fiber-fast speeds of up to 100 Mbps. However, speed may vary depending on location, device, and network congestion.
In terms of the promos themselves, SMART’s UNLI5G offers unlimited 5G data with additional 2G/4G/LTE data. GLOBE’s GO5G on the other hand, offers unlimited 5G data with the condition of being registered on any other GO promos above Php90, which includes unlimited text to all networks with additional 2G/4G/LTE data of minimum 8GB.
So technically speaking, they both appear to offer the same unlimited 5G and additional non-5G data. But upon considering, with GLOBE’s condition, you are able to make any combination of promos where you will always avail unlimited 5G data, additional non-5G data, and unlimited text to all networks for as low as Php289 for 7 days. Globe is in advantage for this part.
SMART UNLI5G Postpaid Plan
SMART also offers unlimited 5G data for postpaid users, including unlimited data for 5G and 4G/LTE networks, as well as unlimited calls and texts to all networks. SMART UNLI 5G also includes free access to YouTube and other video streaming apps. For the price, SMART UNLI 5G costs Php2999 per month for a postpaid plan with a 24-month lock-in period.
You will always have to consider your location, whether SMART or GLOBE has a better connection/signal in your area. But according to price, conditions, coverage, and features, you might want to consider choosing GLOBE GO5g UNLI DATA for more features and inclusions.
