Most extensive 5G coverage
The next evolution of wireless communications, 5G offers significantly faster speeds and ultra-low latency, making it possible to stream ultra-HD videos without buffering, download and upload heavy files in seconds, and play high-bandwidth games without lag. It also provides a new platform that will unlock possibilities for groundbreaking digital experiences and services.
As part of its ongoing nationwide rollout, Smart has fired up more than 2,000 5G sites across the country – the most extensive coverage in the Philippines. Smart is also planning to grow its 5G base stations by over 3,800 this year.
Smart 5G recently went live in Benguet, Misamis Oriental, and Zamboanga Sibugay.
Leader in 5G
Smart is at the forefront of the 5G revolution in the country as the first Philippine telco to launch 5G services nationwide last July in Metro Manila, and strategic areas in Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao.
Smart is also the first local telco to launch Signature 5G Plans, which are specially designed with generous data allocations so customers can make the most of the ultrafast Smart 5G.
Country’s fastest mobile data network
Smart 5G complements Smart’s continuous expansion of its 4G/LTE network. Smart’s mobile network is already the fastest in the country, as reported by third-party mobile internet analytics firm Ookla® and Opensignal.
Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis, named Smart as the country’s fastest mobile data network in the second half of 2020 after it achieved a Speed Score™ of 24.99, with average speeds of 20.08 Mbps for download, and 7.42 Mbps for upload, based on 3,915,679 user-initiated tests taken with Speedtest®. Ookla has also cited Smart as the country’s fastest mobile data network for three years in a row now*.
On the other hand, Opensignal, an independent mobile analytics firm, noted in its November 2020 Mobile Network Experience Report for the Philippines** that Smart remained ahead of the competition in terms of Video Experience, Upload and Download Speed Experience, 4G Availability, and 4G Coverage Experience.
