The company also boasts that based on 
consumer-initiated tests taken using Ookla, Smart has consistently posted the fastest 5G speeds for Q1 2021 with median download speeds of 190 Mbps that is more than double of the competition for the same period.

We continue to upgrade and expand our network in order to deliver the best data experience to our customers, as fresh community quarantine measures require them to conduct most of their day-to-day tasks online in order to stay safe, said Mario G. Tamayo, Head of Technology at PLDT and Smart.

Connectivity is even more crucial now that many have turned to the Internet to keep updated with the latest news about the pandemic and the vaccines, as well as keep in touch with their families, and continue working and operating their businesses from the safety of their homes. With 5G, our customers can also take their favorite online activities, like streaming Ultra-HD videos, playing high-bandwidth games, making video calls, and uploading and downloading heavy files quickly, to the next level, he added.

To help its subscribers enjoy 5G better, Smart recently launched the UNLI 5G DATA promo for areas with 5G connectivity. It is initially available at strategic urban centers, including Metro Manila, Angeles City, Baguio City, Cavite City, Cebu City, Clark City, and Davao City with additional data for non-5G use so subscribers can stay connected even when they move from a 5G-covered area to a non-5G-covered site. The promo starts at PHP 299 for 7 days.

To support this 5G rollout has also widened its array of Smart 5G-certified devices. Recently, the company also launched the Rocket WiFi, the first 5G pocket WiFi in the country.
