Smart Axiata, a telecom service provider in Cambodia, took another step in contributing to people’s safety during the Covid-19 pandemic by providing its customers with e-top up data bonus and free home delivery of Smart@Home.
Until May 31, Smart customers who top up their mobile phone balance by at least 1.25 USD via the SmartNas app, Smart website or Smart’s Zero Balance Portal will be awarded with 1GB of data for free. This data bonus will be in addition to their allowance no matter what plan they are on or any data bonuses they already receive.
Already renowned for its CSR initiatives, the operator's latest is aimed at encouraging people to stay home and thus protecting themselves from contracting the coronavirus, said Mila Jivkova Kusheva, chief marketing officer, Smart Axiata.
“To play our part, we want to ensure our customers use these e-top up options to minimise their contact with cash and scratch cards, so we are offering 1GB of free data on top of the data allowances we already offer,” said Kusheva. "Digital literacy and ability in Cambodia are quite high, and the latest community outbreak of coronavirus in Phnom Penh and Sihanoukville clearly demonstrates that easier and more convenient top up solutions – through online channels – will remain popular and important.”
Meanwhile, Smart will offer free home delivery of Smart @Home, its simple, plug-and-play home Wi-Fi service, in Phnom Penh and Kandal province if ordered via Nham24 or eGets. This service will allow people to work, study, have fun and socialise online without having to come out to get the router.
Morevoer, Smart @Home allows customers all the benefits of home Wi-Fi without the expense and inconvenience of installing Internet lines in their home as it uses mobile SIM cards to distribute broadband-speed connectivity throughout homes.
“Many people are either in lockdown or working or studying from home, playing their part in ensuring that there is less movement and interaction,” Kusheva added.
