4G network in Pag-asa Island

The company claimed it is the country's most remote cell site as it is deployed to the municipality of Kalayaan, about 500 kilometers from the capital city of Puerto Princesa, Palawan. 

Residents of the island can now experience mobile data and communicate via messaging apps, Smart said. 

The activation of LTE in Pag-asa island is proof of our continued commitment to give our customers access to our services, wherever in the Philippines they may be, regardless of the challenges, said Mario G. Tamayo, senior vice president and head of Network Planning and Engineering at PLDT-Smart.

Smart also connected Pag-asa Island with 2G service way back in 2005. 

Ending the first semester, the firm was able to increase the number of its LTE base stations by 10 percent versus end-2019.

The firm also boosted the capacity of its LTE network by reallocating its assigned 1800 MHz frequency from 2G to 4G/LTE.
