Sun Cellular is sunsetting today


Sun Cellular, the mobile network that was bought by the Manny Pangilinan-led telecommunications company Smart, will cease to exist today, April 25.

The brand that was purchased by Smart from the Gokongwei’s 11 years ago will now be rebranded to Smart Postpaid, according to Smart. It will also no longer accept new applications for the Non-Stop and Fixed Load plans.

Despite shutting down the brand, Smart said that existing Sun postpaid subscribers need not have to worry about their existing account as their contracts will still be honored. Sun mobile numbers and SIM cards will also remain working.

But subscribers who are now out of contract have the option to switch to Smart and avail of its Signature plan as low as P599 and offers unlimited text and call to all networks.

With the integration to Smart Postpaid, Sun Cellular subscribers will also experience improved 4G speeds by utilizing the mobile network’s 5G technology.
