According to Atty. Ray C. Espinosa, Chief Corporate Services Officer at PLDT and Smart, “this rollout is elevating the bar for mobile internet services in the country and serves as a more powerful platform for advanced and relevant digital services that will help transform the country into a more competitive, digitally-empowered nation.” 
“We are asking for our customers’ patience and understanding while we are making a lot of changes in our network facilities. These activities are being done during the most inactive hours of the day, and we are putting systems in place to keep to a minimum the impact on our subscribers. In the end, our commitment to all our subscribers is that they will enjoy progressively better mobile data services in the next few months, particularly for those using LTE devices,” said Joachim Horn, chief technology and information advisor for PLDT and Smart. 
Horn added that this acceleration of LTE deployment is because LTE, an all-IP network, delivers superior experience for users, particularly for data. It can also be quickly upgraded to LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), which can provide even faster speeds and greater capacity. 
Smart began rolling out its first LTE-A service in April 2016 in preparation for the rise of bandwidth-heavy services such as video streaming and gaming, using a capability called “Carrier Aggregation” 
“This is a key part of our efforts to transform the PLDT and Smart networks into the country’s most future-ready data infrastructure delivering a wide range of gigabit digital solutions,” Espinosa said.
This is a part of the company's nationwide 3-year network expansion to improve both coverage and quality of service, particularly its LTE service. The rest of the country are also underway to expect significant boost in quality of LTE services.
