Smart 5G

Smart Communications, Inc. has solidified its superiority in 5G after being hailed as the fastest 5G network in the Philippines by Ookla, based on consumer-initiated tests taken using Speedtest by Ookla.

Smart consistently had the best 5G speeds in Q1 2021, with median download speeds of 190 Mbps, more than double the competition's for the same time.

Undisputed leader in 5G
Smart's expanded 5G network now has over 2,300 locations nationwide, allowing Filipinos who rely on mobile data to remain connected and on the go.

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.

To complement this continuous expansion of Smart's 5G network, Smart has also ramped-up its efforts to widen its array of Smart 5G-certified devices to make 5G easier to access and enjoy.

Rocket WiFi, the country's first and fastest 5G Pocket WiFi, was recently introduced by Smart, which will allow 5G speeds on other devices as long as they have a Wi-Fi connection. Rocket WiFi, which is specifically built for collaboration and multitasking, will link up to 15 WiFi-capable smartphones, tablets, or laptops, making it quicker and easier for more consumers to enjoy the lightning speeds of Smart 5G on a variety of devices.

5G, the latest wave of cellular technologies, allows next-level multimedia experiences such as uninterrupted HD content streaming, lag-free smartphone gaming, crystal-clear video calls without buffering, and instant upload and download of large files.

Smart 5G complements Smart’s continuous expansion of its 4G/LTE network. Smart’s mobile network, which covers 96% of the population from Batanes to Tawi-Tawi, is already the fastest in the country, as reported by third-party mobile internet analytics firms Ookla® and Opensignal.

This level of performance is enabled by PLDT's fiber infrastructure, the country's most extensive at 429,000 kilometers.
