Smart Fires Up Its 5G (LTE-A) Network


Smart Communications is proud to announce that it has already switched on its 5G or Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) network, the fastest internet service in the world. If our current LTE network in the country can reach up to 42Mbps, LTE-A can reach up to 100Mbps which is double the speed a regular LTE network. You can download a 10MB file in just mere seconds! Wow!


The Philippines is now one of the few countries with LTE-A network which includes South Korea, United States, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong.

“Even as our 3G and 4G networks continue to be unrivaled, Smart becomes the first operator to leap into the future and put the Philippines at par with the world’s most advanced countries in terms of mobile communications technology,” Orlando B. Vea, Smart chief wireless advisor, said.

Smart did test its LTE-A on key places like Makati City, Boracay and Davao City with speeds up to 100Mbps.
