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.

Smart Lte • Smart Rolls Out 50Mbps Lte, 27Mbps Hspa+Last April, Smart demoed their LTE network to the public. This month, they’re rolling it within Metro Manila.

Realme Philippines

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.

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… :)

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

before applying for a plan ask 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.

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!

Sa mga wireless broadband ads naman nakalagay na “up to 2mbps” so I think kung 1mbps lang ang ibibigay ay acceptable kasi “up to” and not “guaranteed 2mbps” ang nakalagay…and it’s wireless prone to interference, etc.

Excluding yung management ng “network resource” or capping…

@jp tama sinabi ng kaibigan mo. ala namang talagang lte pa sa smart. unang una, mali yung post dito na hanggang 27MBPS lang ang kaya w/o LTE. kaya in short, 3G pa nga ang Smart pero kayang mag provide ng speed gaya ng LTE. siyempre mas mabilis yung LTE pero nag overlap yung pinakamabilis ng 3G ang pinaka mabagal ng LTE. kaya puedeng sabihing in marketing terms, LTE, hehehe.

but then ang tanong is eto ba yung makukuha ng subscriber o kalahati lang o kalahati ng kalahati, hahaha…

I’ll wait for HSPA+ ng Globe. SMART Service is crappy… I’m Globe Postpaid Tattoo, i get what they advertise 3Mbps. Never complain. 10GB to 15GB average daily download, NO Capping whatsoever.
