LTE is coming to your area soon courtesy of Smart!
Last year saw Smart Communications launch Long-Term Evolution to the local market. Since then, more and more areas of the country are enjoying LTE or 4G connection, allowing users to make the most out of their Internet experience.
Smart will add 400 more mobile LTE sites, majority will be in Metro Manila. 1,000 additional TD-LTE (used by homes and businesses) sites will allow more people the conveniences of high speed Internet whether they’re wired or wireless.
The 1,400 sites cater to many different users across platforms, from students, to the workforce, gamers, and casual users alike. To back up their claims, Smart has revealed that two popular speedtest benchmarking apps, Ookla and Sensorly, rated Smart’s LTE network as having the fastest download speed to a wider set of users all over the country.
Smart has invested over P32 billion to increase the internet connection coverage and infrastructure in the Philippines, ensuring more and more Filipinos will be connected via the Internet. As of writing, 53 provinces, 300 cities and municipalities (over 42% of the population) have access to at least 3G in the Philippines.
