Dalawang taon makalipas simulang gamitin ng Smart Communications, Inc (Smart) ang Long Term Evolution o LTE/4G Technology sa bansa, ipinahaysag ng Smart na ang 5G wireless technology LTE-Advanced(LTE-A) ay nagsimula ng din gamitin ng Smart sa bansa.
Sa Smart Jump Center sa Mandaluyong City sinimulang gamitin ng Smart ang pinaka bagong technology.

LTE-A o 5G Technology na kayang magtransfer ng data ng 100 megabits per second(mbps) hanngang 1 gigabit per second(Gbps). Ito ay 10 beses na mas mabilis sa 3G at 2 beses naman ng bilis ng 4G.
Tulad ng ibang mobile operator sa ibang bansa gaya ng Singapore, South Korea, United States, Australia at Hong Kong na gumagamit na din ng 5G technology, ang Smart naman ang kauna unahang mobile operator sa bansa na gumamit nito.
“Even as our 3G and 4G networks continue to be unrivaled, Smart becomes the first operator to leap into the future and put the Philippines at par with the world’s most advanced countries in terms of mobile communications technology,” pahayag ni Orlando B. Vea, founder and Chief Wireless Advisor ng Smart.
Sa pamamagitan ng LTE-A mas mabilis ng madodownload ang mga files na aabot na lang ng halos segundo ang paghihintay, diretso at walang buffering na panunuod ng youtube videos at lag free na mga video calls. Noong nakaraang taon pa nagsimula na mag testing ng 5G ang Smart sa bansa na nag resulta ng 100 Mbps sa Makati, Boracay at Davao.
“The PLDT Group’s strategy has always been to create solutions that address the varying needs of all segments of our customers, to bring fixed, wireless and mobile broadband services where they really matter. They may be delivered at different speeds and volumes, using a variety of technologies, and meant to respond to a wide range of needs of the market – but all of it is aimed at bringing the benefits of the internet to every Filipino,” paliwanag ni Isberto.

“We are able to deliver all these high-bandwidth services and applications on the strength of our transmission backbone network, which is the most extensive and most resilient in the country. Aside from allowing us to commit to speed, our unmatched network resources give us the edge in terms of efficiency and reliability,” dagdag pa niya.
