If this little teaser from Smart is any indication, Smart Evolution (4G/LTE) will be available to the public any day this month. That’s 50-70Mbps of mobile internet on the road.
No other details have been given out but public testing was made as early as May this year so I guess it’s about time they roll it out to the public.
We’re not sure how many LTE-capable base stations they’ve deployed and the kind of coverage it will offer but I reckon it will hit the streets of Metro Manila ahead of anybody in the country.
The LTE service will most probably be delivered via the ZTE MF820 or the Huawei E398, the one we saw in June at CommunicAsia.
The other obvious question is — how much for 50Mbps? Your guess is as good as mine.
