Smart expands LTE coverage to Batanes


Smart Communications Inc. (Smart) has expanded its Long Term Evolution service in Batanes, making it the first operator to have LTE in the country’s northernmost province.

? This is part of Smart?s commitment to bring mobile internet to more than 90 percent of the country?s municipalities by the end of this year,? said Mario G. Tamayo, SVP for network planning and engineering at PLDT and Smart.

Batanes, home to over 17,000 Filipinos, receives around 4,000 tourists a month and is included in the UNESCO Tentative List for Inscription in the World Heritage List.

Made up of 29 barangays in six municipalities, the province is a mini-archipelago of 10 islands, including the main island Batan, the largest island Itbayat, and Sabtang island.

For even better experience and truly world-class speeds, Smart has also fired up LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) in Basco, the provincial capital.

LTE-Advanced is the fastest, commercially available wireless technology for mobile data in the country today.
