Smart backs the digitally-powered Dinagyang Festival 2021

01/23/2021 02:41:22 AM

Even in a pandemic-riddled time, celebrations would find their way to take place... at least, digitally as Smart Communications, Inc. is set to power the virtual edition of Dinagyang Festival this year.

Through the event dubbed as “Dinagyang Digital 2021” Ilonggos can stream safely from the comfort of their homes and watch a plethora of events related such as a virtual concert called Dinagyang Smart Night 2021 featuring alternative rock band Hale, Philpop Winner Reon, and social media influencer Inka Magnay. The much-anticipated music event will be streamed on Smart's official Facebook Page this Saturday, 24 January 2021.

During the event, subscribers also get a chance to be one of the lucky winners of GIGAMANIA, which features exciting prizes every week, such as phones, free data, GigaPoints, P1 million cash, and a chance to win P10 million in the grand draw. Participating Smart subscribers must register for the raffle on the GigaLife app and load up to earn and accumulate GigaPoints for their raffle entries. GIGAMANIA is open to all Smart Prepaid, Smart Postpaid, Smart Bro, and TNT subscribers until April 2021. 

Iloilo City is known to celebrate Dinagyang Festival every third weekend of January as their way of devotion to Sto. NiƱo. And doing the event online, virtual fashion is among PLDT and Smart's initiatives to empower their customers in pursuing their passions and purpose. This telco provider recently teamed up with Grammy-nominated music act BTS to headline its banner ‘Live Smarter, Live with Purpose’ 2021 campaign; intending to showcase BTS’ support of Smart’s goal to inspire the Filipino youth to live their lives with passion and purpose.

For their part, Smart also expanded its current suite of GIGA offers. In addition to GIGA Video, GIGA Stories, GIGA Music, and GIGA Games, which come with data dedicated for consumer passions, plus open access data for other online activities, the telecommunications service provider has also launched GIGA K-Video, which allows their prepaid subscribers to enjoy ad-free streaming and unlimited downloads of K-dramas via the VIU Premium video streaming platform.

Also, Sart offers GIGA Pro, its biggest prepaid data pack for heavy data users; and GIGA Work and GIGA Study, which provide data allocations for work collaboration tools and learning apps, specifically tailored for employees online productivity needs and students’ online education needs. Launched last year, the GigaLife App aims to enable both prepaid and postpaid subscribers to manage their subscriptions more seamlessly.

These customer-centric efforts are underpinned by PLDT-Smart’s accelerated network rollout across the country. December 2020 saw PLDT's fiber infrastructure became the most extensive in the country with more than 429,000 kilometers of coverage. This fiber infrastructure supports Smart's mobile networks, which now hovers over 96% of the population and is available in 95% of the country's cities and municipalities.
