Smart rolls out 50Mbps LTE, 27Mbps HSPA+

Now this is pretty interesting — Smart is set to roll out their LTE network (50-70Mbps) and HSPA+ (up to 27.8Mps) in Metro Manila this May.

Last April, Smart demoed their LTE network to the public. This month, they’re rolling it within Metro Manila.

LTE can do speeds between 50-70Mbps while HSPA+ can do 27.8Mbps. Not sure if Smart will also offer those same speeds to subscribers.

We’ll have to wait and see how much these plans and data packages would cost.

    i hope they improve their tech first in the provinces. I use plugit when I go home to baguio, and Baguio is already a major city yet their service there is still crappy! Manila’s not the only City/major consumer, you know!

    before applying for a plan as if there are offering CIR? puro naman kasi “UP TO” ang mga speed na inoofer then kumakapag isip kyo yun ang binayaran nyo na speed. kung ganyan yan ka taas at consistent eh di wala na kukuha ng leastline.

    higher CIRs are usually offered to corporate clients only.

  8. I never achieved a decent speed of 1mbps with smartBRO, I used this everywhere in the Philippines, I had major major connection issues with facebook, yahoo messenger, and even Skype, browsing was rediculously slow, and I always had latency issues, the signal kept switching back 2G despite living in metro manila, so really smart never supported a decent proper 3G signal, now they are saying they support LTE and HSPA+, how on earth will they do that if their existing network is not capabale of even 3G speeds? Another false advertsing

    mga pards remember this words “UP TO” hahaha

    kung acceptable sakanila ung 60%. so kung 30Mbps lang makukuha ko. ok na ok parin sakin un. saka I bet namn. nasa consumer’s reach naman ung pricing nila. DI KAGAYA SA SKY BROADBAND!!!

    Next stop for Smart- 4G-capable phones… :)

    The sweet promise of LTE and HSPA+ is, well, sweet. But Smart better set the 4G-LTE infrastructure right…

    I keep reading about blogs about the 4G LTE network used by a certain US cell company called Verizon Wireless, and frankly, their 4G LTE network is unreliable… Connections drop dead in mere minutes from startup… Some places have slow connections… Etc…

    Let’s hope Smart gives us a reliable and accessible network for all of us… :)
