Smart LTE upgrade in Marikina and Quezon City

Smart will double LTE in those areas as a part of its on-going network expansion and modernization program.

By continuously upgrading our networks, we are leading the way toward improving internet and digital services for Filipinos, said Mario G. Tamayo, PLDT and Smart Senior Vice President for Network Planning and Engineering.

According to Smart, the upgrade is expected to improve mobile data service for both LTE and 3G. Expect Smart's signal to be faster and more stable than ever after the update.

We are doing a lot of work in our facilities so please bear with us as we execute this. From the work that we’ve already completed, our customers are already reporting much improved LTE and 3G experience. They will enjoy progressively better mobile data services in the next few months, particularly for those using LTE devices, he added.

Currently, Smart is doing the "area by area upgrades" strategy to gradually upgrade signals in various areas of Marikina and Quezon City. The program was designed to minimize disruption or degradation of services in the affected areas.

We are doubling the number of our LTE equipment in Marikina and Quezon City, and expanding support for 3G as well, Tamayo said.  By the end of our upgrades, we expect to improve the coverage of our 700 MHz and 1800 MHz frequencies in the area, which will widen and improve indoor coverage, as well as increase each cell site’s capacity to handle more calls, texts and data traffic, he added.

Like what Tamayo mentioned, let's expect better indoor signal coverage and better call and data quality in Marikina and Quezon City soon.
