The fastest 4G technology is now available in
bite-sized chunks as wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc.
(Smart) unveils the country’s first Long Term Evolution (LTE)
“Select Smart Postpaid subscribers can now enjoy speeds of up to
42Mbps on their LTE-enabled devices for as low as P50 a day,” said
Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services Head Lloyd Manaloto.
“All it takes is a simple text message and you can experience what
it’s like to Live Faster and Live More on the Philippines’s only
super-charged network,” Manaloto said.
Available until March 31, 2013, unlidata, regular and consumable Smart
Postpaid subscribers can avail of 1-day, 7-day, and 30-day LTE
packages for P50, P299, and P995 respectively.
To purchase of a package, simply send the appropriate key word to 2200
(e.g. LTE 50 send to 2200). Once enrolled, LTE-enabled devices that
are compatible with Smart’s LTE network will automatically connect to
the service wherever it is available.
To date, Smart LTE is present in over 770 establishments including
malls, restaurants, and public areas across 10 cities in Metro Manila
and in select areas in Boracay, Cebu, and Davao.
In the absence of an LTE signal, the device will automatically connect
to Smart’s 4G High Speed Packet Access Plus (HSPA+) network. “Get a
taste of what it’s like to live life on the fast lane,” said Manaloto.
“This is another revolutionary service brought to you from the
Philippine’s pioneer in LTE technology,” he added.
Together with parent company PLDT, Smart boasts of the country’s most
extensive fiber optic network which makes possible high-speed and
resilient data connections.
With more than 54,000kms of fiber optic cables nationwide, Smart has 4
times more fiber power compared to the competition. “Fiber is key to
delivering the true LTE experience,” Manaloto said “With fiber, we
are able to ensure fast and efficient transmission of data from our
core network to your handset,” he ended.
