Smart Best Mobile Coverage

According to the newest study by Ookla, the world leader in mobile and broadband network analytics, PLDT's mobile services arm Smart Communications, Inc. provides the Best Mobile Coverage in the Philippines.

Ookla declared Smart the winner of the Best Mobile Coverage category for Q1-Q2 2022 based on user-generated tests and scans across 2.3 million devices over 671,510 locations, with a Coverage Score of 794, exceeding its nearest competitor's Coverage Score of 734.

Ookla said in its study that the Coverage Score measures both the number of locations where an operator offers service (its footprint) and the quality of service in each location. Ookla also reported that, of the Smart subscriber scans, 99$ had general service and 90,8% had 4G Service.

Reinforcing Smart’s network superiority
“This new citation not only reinforces Smart’s network superiority but also reflects our strong commitment to continuously improve our network so we can deliver a world-class mobile experience to our customers,” said Francis E. Flores, SVP and Head of Consumer Business Group – Individual.

“Having the Best Mobile Coverage means our subscribers nationwide can truly rely on Smart to connect online and achieve more in our fast-paced, hyperconnected world - whether for work, school, e-commerce, social media, or entertainment,” he added.

Value-packed data offers to empower subscribers
Smart's Best Mobile Coverage recognition follows the debut of its value-packed packages designed to empower subscribers, especially during a period when many are economizing due to the rising cost of essential items.

Smart Prepaid has recently announced the ₱99 Power All 99 plan, which includes 8 GB of open access data, Unli TikTok, and Unli Texts to All Networks for 7 days.

Smart's value brand TNT, on the other hand, has launched Sulit Affordaloads, a series of budget-friendly data deals that allow subscribers to connect online for as low as ₱10.

To support the constant growth of mobile data traffic, Smart increased its base stations to 76,600 as of March 2022. These base stations, which include around 7,300 5G base stations, cover the connectivity needs of customers from Batanes to Tawi-Tawi.

Prior to earning the Best Mobile Coverage citation from Ookla, Smart also dominated the April 2022 Mobile Network Experience Report by independent mobile analytics firm Opensignal, covering the essential aspects of service, especially speed and experience.
