Smile mobile broadband internet customers (“Customers”) are responsible for complying with the FUP, all Smile policies and the regulations and laws of the country.
Additionally, it is the responsibility of Customers to secure their devices and services so that they are not vulnerable to external threats such as viruses, spam, and other methods of intrusion.
