We’ve been overwhelmed by the support we received since the announcement of our groundbreaking partnership with BTS. We’re inspired by your response to our collaboration, and this is why we’re always looking for ways to bring you closer to your favorite pop icons,” said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business. 
 
On August 24, the telco brand will be releasing a Smart + BTS Special Edition Prepaid Kit, which comes with a free BTS poster, P400 worth of load, and a sim pack containing 9 GB of data. Subscribers can also collect "seven glossy paper bag designs featuring all seven members." 
 
This will be available through the Smart Online Store, and Smart Official Stores in Lazada, Shopee and GrabMart. Availability in Smart physical stores will depend on the quarantine status by August 31. 
 
In a previous press conference, the company talked about the possibility of bringing the global pop sensation to the country. VP/Group Head of Prepaid Marketing Miriam Choa said, "We want that to happen. But right now, because we are in the situation that we are, we cannot commit to a date yet. That's something that we can hope for."
