What is Smartfren Local Quota? Here’s How to Claim and Use It
Gadgetren – To compete with other operators in Indonesia, Smartfren has presented a variety of attractive packages and services for its users.
Even when buying a package at Smartfren, you can find that there are several quota bonuses that can be used starting from Local Quota, Social Media Quota, Night Quota, to Chat Quota.
Of course, all of these quotas can be useful depending on their individual needs. However, Local Quota is one of the bonuses that might make you curious.
You can usually get Local Quota when you buy the Gokil Max package. However, it is also possible that Smartfren will give it as a special bonus or in other packages later.
Local Quota For What?
Smartfren Local Quota is a distribution of quota types that can only be used in the same location as the area or zone determined by Smartfren.
You can also use Local Quota in areas or zones where the data plan is activated by the user. For example, if you activate the Smartfren package in Bogor, the local quota can only be used in the Bogor area and will not be active when you are outside the city.
The Local Quota itself supports all networks from Smartfren and will automatically be used before the Main Quota. You can also use Local Quota to access the internet, open applications, stream videos or songs, video conferences, and more.
Local Quota has an active period that follows the purchased Smartfren package and related packages, it’s just that the usage area is limited compared to other types. However, if you get it as a bonus given by Smartfren, it will usually have its own active period.
