Before buying any LTE Capable devices, make sure that it is compatible with our LTE Networks here in the Philippines, Example, If you buy a unlocked iPhone 5 from US.. Sorry that phone will not work with Smart and Globe 4G LTE Network since the Frequency and Bands are not compatible, in the US they use LTE Bands 4 and 17.. It will just work in 3G HSPA+.. In the US they want different LTE Band so that you are tied with one carrier only.. AT&T and Verizon for example…

the answer is NO. I have an Lg optimus lte2 or F160k. bought a smart lte prepaid sim pero 3g lang ang kaya. found out that sa prepaid lte dapat 2100Mhz and optimus lte 2 has B3 or 1800Mhz lang. pero i havent tried using it sa globe postpaid. 1800Mhz kasi frequency gamit nila.

@Det. Wrong info. According to smart, lte sim works to any lte capable device kaya lte sim for lte device. Yun ang sabi ng technical staff ng smart na nakausap ko. I want to try sana kaso, out of stock sila.

Prepaid Lte sim being sold by smart are broadband sim meaning,it won’t work on your lte capable handsets. The only phone that will work so far is Xperia z.
So if you don’t own Xperia z or any lte broadband stick and lte pocket wifi (also ipad 4g)don’t bother buying the smart broadband lte prepaid sim.

as for droid razr maxx hd that particular phone will not work for smart LTE, I assume that phone is issued by verizon wireless that uses LTE Band 13 @ 700MHz, Smart uses only Band 1 2100MHz, Band 3 1800MHz and Band 3 850MHz so its not compatible.. unless that if purchase a Multiband LTE Capable Phone like the Galaxy S4

If I will use the LTE sim with HSPA+ devices, will I be able to reach at least the 21Mbps speed or it will be capped to 7.2Mbps still?

The LTE sim should be provisioned for “upto” 42Mbps, right? So thinking of buying just the LTE sim and use it in my Huawei E5331. To follow na lang yung LTE myfi kung meron na sa black market.

How will you know the band of your device? I’m currently using nexus 7. I connect to wifi through my e5151 using a postpaid smart bro sim, and it is annoyingly slow. Even at off peak hours, smart bro’s internet performance is mediocre. I’m weighing my options if I should return back to globe or upgrade to lte. But I have no lte capable device. And besides though smart has mediocre net speed it is reliable compared to global which goes on outage for weeks due to their annoying system upgrade. Any advice?

Same here, I got an HTC One and seems like the LTE Band of HTC One is not capable with the 2,100 Band 1 of Smart, would anybody know how to see what LTE band a phone has? Thanks.

I have a droid razr maxx hd po.. LTE device na xa pero 700 Mhz and band nya.. I’ve seen that smart has bands of 2100,1800 and 850Mhz.. If I will put an LTE sim card on my phone, can it receive LTE signals?.. I live in an LTE coveraged area if you may ask..

San Smart outlets nag bebenta ng LTE prepaid sim cards? I’ve checked Smart Tower at Ayala ave, wala daw sila and di nila alam kung kelan sila magkakaroon.

Will this work with an iPad 3? I’m using a Buddy SIM, and I’m only getting 3G. My fastest speed test was 6 mbps.
