In addition to the exclusive video franchise, Claro Controle plans also include unlimited access to WhatsApp (including for voice or video calls), Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Waze. Calls are also unlimited to any operator and long distance.

A detail is that Claro gives a 5 GB bonus on the control for those who do the number portability process. This package must also be granted to any customer, thanks to Anatel regulations:

All offers, including those of a promotional nature, must be available for contracting by all interested parties, including the Provider’s Consumers, without distinction based on the date of adhesion or any other form of discrimination within the geographic area of ​​the offer.

Compared to control, postpaid is much more expensive. However, the internet franchise is larger and the Extraplay video package of all plans allows use with HBO Max, Globoplay, Netflix, Conmebol, Pluto TV, Twitch and NET Now:

In addition, Claro Pós plans include Passaporte Américas, which allows international roaming at no extra cost in 18 countries. Starting with the 60 GB package, there is the Passaporte Mundo, which extends coverage to 80 destinations.

As with control, Claro Pós plans also give free access to WhatsApp (including voice and video calls), Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Waze. Calls are unlimited for any operator and area code, and it is possible to add dependent lines (family plan) for the price of R$ 41.99 per month for each extra chip.

A detail that interested parties should pay attention to is that Claro Pós plans have a loyalty period of 12 months, and whoever cancels before the deadline must pay a fine proportional to the remaining time of the contract.

In addition to the plans with apps, Claro continues to sell the conventional service and without subscriptions. In the control, for example, it is possible to hire 10 GB for R$59.90 per month, but without the exclusive franchise for videos.

Considering that the subscription to the HBO Max Multiscreen plan costs R$27.90 per month, it may be a good deal to close the package with Claro. It’s worth even comparing with the annual HBO Max plan: the price would be the same when adding the price with the 10 GB control, but the internet franchise would be lower.

In postpaid, the situation changes: Claro sells 20 GB of internet without subscriptions costs R$ 129.90 per month, while Claro Pós with HBO Max has 25 GB and is sold for R$ 159.90 monthly. Unless the extra 5 GB is essential, it’s worth taking out the cell phone plan separately and the annual HBO Max.

Claro is not the only operator to market plans with HBO Max:
