Recommends LTE handsets for better mobile internet experience

[16 AUG 2016] Leader in mobile Smart Communications (Smart) supports retail giant SM Supermalls’ (SM) cyber month celebration, in line with its drive to promote smartphone adoption among its customers.

SM’s cyber month celebration showcases the newest and most popular consumer gadgets available in the market today. From now until August 31, 2016 consumers are entitled to enjoy big discounts in their gadget purchases at SM Cyberzones’ “Tech Sale” nationwide.

“Our focus has always been to deliver great customer experience, particularly for mobile data. We are helping encourage our customers to upgrade to more advanced devices like 4G or LTE smartphones, because our massive, nationwide network improvement program is designed to enhance our mobile data service, and it’s the users of these smartphones who will be able to fully enjoy and maximize these improvements,” said Ramon R. Isberto head of Public Affairs at PLDT and Smart.

Smart has earlier said it will cover 95% of the country’s cities and municipalities with its LTE (Long-Term Evolution) service by the end of 2018. Smart is accelerating its LTE deployment because it will enable the company to deliver faster, more reliable and affordable Internet services throughout the country.

LTE delivers a superior data service experience to customers compared to 3G technologies, and provides the fastest wireless data service commercially available.

Complementing the LTE network deployment, Smart is also working with device manufacturers so that they can introduce more medium- to low-priced 4G or LTE handsets, tablets, and pocket WiFis, to give more users access to the data network. “Supporting the cyber month celebration of SM Supermalls is part of this broad effort to help ensure that the next wave of mobile devices purchased by users are ready to utilize the technologies we are working hard to deliver,” added Isberto.

This combination of advanced network and devices will enable Smart to provide the best digital experience to their customers across the country. “This month is the perfect month to go gadget shopping at SM Cyberzones across the country. We hope to see more Filipinos fully embracing a digital life in the coming months through their smartphone purchases,” Isberto concluded.
