Fastest LTE network in the Philippines

Smart, TNT and Sun customers are now better able to enjoy video streaming services like YouTube as a result of the mobile carrier’s massive investments to deliver world-class internet to every corner of the country.

To provide customers with a better mobile internet and video streaming experience, Smart is accelerating the deployment of LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) and Carrier Aggregation (CA) technology, which are meant to deliver bigger bandwidth and much faster data speeds.

Smart has already set up CA sites in cities across Metro Manila, as well as in major cities in other regions of the country, including Bacolod, Bohol, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Laguna, Leyte, Palawan, and Zamboanga, among others. Smart also expanded its coverage in major tourist spots like Baguio, Baler, Batanes, Sagada, and Sarangani.

In its latest analysis, UK-based mobile analytics company OpenSignal recently noted Smart’s “phenomenal growth in overall download speed,” following improvements in 4G and 3G download speeds, and greater accessibility among customers.

In its separate March 2018 report covering November 2017 to January 2018,  OpenSignal also recognized Smart for having the country’s fastest LTE network, bestowing the company four major citations including best in 4G LTE download speed; best in overall download speed; best 4G latency performance; and best 3G latency performance.
