MANILA, Philippines—Smart Communications’ Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband service is now available in more cities across Metro Manila, further extending the network’s lead over rivals in the rollout of “ultrafast” Internet connectivity.
In a statement, Smart said its LTE service is now accessible in more areas in the northern, central and southern areas of Metro Manila. These areas include SM Southmall in Las Piñas, Greenhills Shopping Center in San Juan, UP Diliman, Ateneo De Manila, Miriam College, Sikatuna Village and the Eastwood Mall in Quezon City.
“Smart LTE lets you enjoy the fastest 4G connection all over the Metro Manila area,” Smart broadband Internet and data services head Lloyd Manaloto said.
“With 10 cities now powered by our super-charged broadband service, we have more than doubled our coverage since the commercial launch less than two months ago,” he said.
Other cities with LTE connectivity are Makati, Taguig, Mandaluyong, Pasig, Pasay, Muntinlupa and Manila.
In line with the improved coverage, Smart has continued to distribute even more LTE “sticker pins” in various establishments around Metro Manila to serve as a visible guide to subscribers using LTE.
