Smart, US firm team up to expand cellular broadband network

Once the service is up and running, Smart said its more than 70 million subscribers can experience this.

Abel Avellan, chairman and chief executive officer of AST SpaceMobile, said that their service will be offered to subscribers residing in rural areas, allowing Smart to provide affordable broadband cellular access.

With this MoU (memorandum of understanding), we have entered into agreements and understandings with mobile network operators which collectively cover approximately 1.4 billion mobile subscribers, Avellan said.

Alfredo S. Panlilio, Smart Communications President and CEO, said that the company's partnership with the American firm would complement its goal of connecting the entire Philippines.

This collaboration between Smart and AST SpaceMobile strongly supports this vision, as we continue to invest in our networks and explore the most relevant innovations that will enable us to continue expanding the reach of our services alongside delivering exceptional customer experience across the Philippines’ more than 7,000 islands, said Panlilio.
