In a statement released Wednesday, Smart said both companies already signed the memorandum of understanding.

Smart has long been at the forefront of innovation in the Philippines. These innovations have led to widespread social and economic development over the years. In order to build a truly world-class 5G ecosystem with life-changing experiences, we will need to collaborate, learn, and partner with formidable industry leaders, such as KT, said Katrina Luna-Abelarde, PLDT and Smart head of the Strategic Partnerships.

With the partnership, Smart strengthened its position anew in the Philippine 5G space.

Timing is crucial in digital transformation in business. We hope that the two companies can grow to always share information regarding various DX projects, including 5G, and promote new business, Justin Moon, KT head of Global Business Unit, also said in the statement.
