Smart teams up with all UAE Mobile Telco's for 5G Roaming

Smart 5G roaming

Smart partners up with Etisalat Group (Etisalat) and du – the two mobile telco brands in the United Arab Emirates for 5G roaming services. Smart Communications, Inc. is expanding its 5G roaming availability to cover the world's top countries that have the best 5G experience.

Customers who subscribe to Smart's exclusive GigaRoam UAE Plan, which includes 3GB of data for P999/15 days, will enjoy 5G roaming rates with a Smart 5G-capable SIM and a Smart 5G-certified smartphone. Subscribers can learn about and subscribe to available data roaming plans at roam.smart.com.ph.

This partnership with the largest mobile operators in UAE will allow Smart prepaid and postpaid subscribers to enjoy worry-free 5G service while they are in the Middle Eastern country.

Etisalat is a leading business leader in the competitive telecommunications industry. The telco company achieved the world's fastest 5G download speed of 9.1 Gigabits per second in December of last year (on a prototype device). Meanwhile, du, which is funded by Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company PJSC (EITC), the UAE's second-largest telco, is investing aggressively in its 5G rollout.

The launch of Smart's 5G roaming service in UAE with Etisalat and du follows the recent groundbreaking 5G partnerships established by Smart with Taiwan’s FarEasTone and South Korea’s KT Corp. UAE, Taiwan, and South Korea are the world’s top three countries for the best 5G experience, according to a February 2021 report by mobile analytics and insights research company Opensignal.

This series of 5G roaming partnerships with the world’s top operators are a testament to Smart’s commitment to providing world-class roaming services to its travelers as travel restrictions are anticipated to relax with mass vaccinations.

5G leadership in PH
Smart, the wireless arm of the Philippines’ largest integrated telco PLDT, launched its commercial 5G service in July 2020 and was the first in the country to roll out its 5G service nationwide.

Smart also recently kicked off its nationwide 5G experiential caravan to bring the possibilities of 5G technology closer to customers, following the nationwide roll-out of its ultrafast 5G network in Metro Manila, Cebu, Boracay, Iloilo, Cavite, Laguna, Pampanga, and Davao.

5G is expected to make Smart, the Philippines' fastest mobile network as recognized by third-party analytics firm Ookla, even faster.
