Smart Communications has announced that they have fired up the country’s first 5G cell sites in Makati Central Business District and at the Clark Freeport Zone (CFZ) in Pampanga.
PLDT and Smart activated the first 5G cell site at the PLDT headquarters in Makati City with technology partner Huawei, while it also fired up the first 5G cell site at the Clark Smart 5G City in the CFZ with technology partner Ericsson. The 5G cell sites are 3GPP standard compliant and are the first to be activated in the Philippines.
The activation of 5G cell sites in Clark is in line with PLDT and Smart’s signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Clark Development Corp. to transform the CFZ into the country’s first Smart 5G City.
