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.

Smart 4G Lte • Smart 4G Lte About To Hit The Streets Of Manila

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.

Realme Philippines

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.

Hat tip to Christopher Ammerlaan.

GLOBE AND SMART ARE ALL CRAP… false advertisement thats what they do… even if u pay 50 pesos for an unli internet on their current network you wont still get the speed fast enough for just even browsing a stupid web page… ill stick to dsl although it is also crappy but way batter than broadband… they just suck money from their subscribers.. if you wanna get even with this money hungry crappy service providers i would suggest using a vpn stuff.. u get free net from their crappy network… take that Smart and Globe…

I’ve experienced Smart’s LTE in Boracay and I must say I was amazed by the speed and the huge difference in latency (vs. HSDPA)

But if Smart will limit the available plans to what’s available on the Rocket (no unlimited surfing) I’m sure this will not ring a bell to most Filipinos.

Still have to prove the reality of this one.
