I have been using my iPhone with LTE connection since March and so far SMART LTE has been consistently providing me a good 4g connection while enjoying my vacation in Boracay, Cebu, Davao, Naga City, Legaspi City, IloIlo, Antipolo and even in Lucban in the province of Quezon.

Called Long Term Evolution (LTE), this latest advance in mobile broadband technology can deliver download and upload speeds of up to 42 mbps. In the near future, LTE will be able to provide speeds of up 100 mbps.

Recognized as the most advanced fourth-generation (4G) mobile broadband technology, LTE will enable individual users to download a movie in minutes rather than hours, download songs in seconds and easily watch high-definition video on Youtube with no buffering.

With Smart’s ongoing network expansion, Smart LTE is now available in over a thousand sites spread across almost 180 cities and municipalities across the country, including the province of Rizal, and areas in North Luzon, South Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao.

Smart LTE also covers all 17 cities and municipalities of Caloocan, Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Manila, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Parañaque, Pasay, Pasig, Pateros, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig, and Valenzuela.
