2.1Profile of the Company
Sun Cellular is one of the topmost mobile telecommunications company in the Philippines. It was founded by Digital Telecommunications Philippines (DIGITEL) last September 2001 to provide wireless public and private telecommunication services. Having more than 80 branches nationwide, it caters to hundreds of employees.
Sun Cellular offers a wide range of wireless private and public telecommunication services in local and international market. It offers different products like postpaid, prepaid, broadband and services like value added services and corporate solutions.
The postpaid, commonly known as a plan, is composed of different subscription plans that the customer can choose in order to fit their lifestyle needs. It comes with a free phone that goes with your chosen plan. These are Regular Postpaid, Fixed Load Plan, Easy Line, Group Plan and Elite Plan Series. The Regular Postpaid gives the customers’ freedom to spend more than the amount of plan while the Fixed Loan Plan prohibits the user to exceed his or her subscribed plan. Easy Line is the most convenient way to apply for a postpaid subscription since it does not need a lot of requirements, just a valid identification card. The Group Plan and Elite Plan series are the same as the Regular Postpaid Plan. The Group Plan is cheaper since it is a package for groups of three subscriptions while the Elite Plan series just gives a higher limit and freebies such as international calls and texts for one subscription.
The prepaid service is the same as the postpaid service where it is independent on a SIM (subscriber identity module) card and load. However, the difference is that the customer is the one reloading his or her SIM on prepaid while on postpaid, Sun Cellular automatically reloads the SIM card that is subscribed on a specific type of plan within the month. Load for prepaid SIM cards are available in express load or call cards.
Sun Cellular also offers internet services called Sun Broadband. Like their wireless telecommunication services, Sun Broadband can be postpaid or prepaid. Value Added Services are also available. These are miscellaneous services like promos, infotainment, downloads, music, messaging and mobile internet. Corporate Solutions on the other hand, as the name implies are packages for the corporate or business world.
