An ‘auto’ mobile future for LTE

Following the announcement of US telco AT&T which said
that it will soon offer built-in LTE connectivity in private vehicles,
Philippine wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) saida
that a similar application of the technology is already possible
locally through the use of the Smart LTE Pocket WiFi device.

According to Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services Head Lloyd
Manaloto, ‘auto’ mobile LTE can already be experienced in major cities
and municipalities given Smart LTE’s widespread deployment in the
country.

“The way ‘auto’ mobile LTE works is that LTE-enabled SIMs are
installed in taxis, buses, jeepneys, or trains, thus, making available
wireless services to passengers and even to the vehicle itself,” said
Smart Manaloto. “While we await for the local introduction of this
feature, the Smart LTE Pocket WiFi is the next best thing,” he added.

Manaloto explains that automobile LTE would also be ideal in local
public transport as it could make available next-generation high speed
Internet access to millions of Filipinos.

The MRT alone, which travels along Epifanio De Los Santos Avenue
(EDSA), the Philippines’ busiest thoroughfare, has a daily ridership
of around 500,000.

Apart from this, various forms of mass transportation will also be
given the chance to access GPS and location data in real time as well
as gain the ability to transmit data such as when wirelessly
livestreaming CCTV footage.

“Imagine a future of cars with an integrated SIM slot. True mobility,
literally and digitally!—commuters in the Philippines’ busiest cities
could soon begin to Live More even while they’re stuck in rush hour
traffic,” said Manaloto.

“All this could soon become real especially with Smart’s
fast-improving LTE coverage nationwide,” he added.

Smart LTE is currently present in a total of 46 cities and 69
municipalities around the country.

Dubbed the fastest wireless technology in the world today, LTE is
capable of download speeds which are several times faster than
present-day 3G and HSPA+ standards.

Powering Smart LTE is the Philippines’ most extensive Fiber Optic
Cable (FOC) network. With more than 54,000 kilometers of FOCs
installed across the country, Smart, together with parent company
PLDT, has over four times more fiber power compared to its closest
competitors.
“Fiber optic cables use beams of light to communicate from the core
network to our base stations,” said Manaloto. “This gives Smart a
clear ‘fiber optic advantage’ which simply cannot be matched by any
other network,” he added.

Smart LTE is offered on an unlimited basis* in Broadband Plans 1299,
1749, and 3500** with a free USB-dongle or with a Pocket WiFi device
for a one-time fee of P2,000, and on Smart LTE Postpaid Plan 2000 or
1500 with a free Sony Xperia V or ZTE T82 Android smartphone,
respectively.

Smart also offers unlimited* LTE connectivity to iPhone 5 postpaid
plan subscribers.

coverage map, visit www.smart.com/lte or go to a Smart Store nearest
you.
