Smart unbeatable in 5G space

Based on Ookla's consumer-initiated tests, PLDT's wireless arm recorded the fastest 5G speeds for the first quarter of this year, with media download speeds of 190 megabits per second.

The figure is "more than double" than its rival's posted speeds in the same period, Smart claimed in a statement on Monday.

Smart Communications President and CEO and PLDT Chief Revenue Officer Alfredo S. Panlilio attributed the good performance of the company's 5G network to the Pangilinan-led telco's continuous investment in its network buildup.

With 5G, we are making the Philippines' fastest mobile network even faster – elevating the average mobile speeds into fiber-like levels – to serve our customers better, especially in these critical times, Panlilio said.

To date, Smart boasts more than 2,300 5G sites across the country.

These Smart 5G sites have been fired up nationwide, including in all of Metro Manila's cities and municipalities, and in the provinces of Benguet, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Pampanga, Rizal, Cebu, Iloilo, Aklan, Misamis Oriental, Zamboanga Sibugay, and Davao.

Smart is also complementing this network expansion to widen its array of Smart 5G-certified devices to make 5G easier to access and enjoy.
