Customers of PLDT wireless arm Smart Communications, Inc (Smart) in Romblon can look forward to a better mobile data experience as Smart transforms Romblon into an LTE province.
As part of its continuing network expansion and upgrades across the country, Smart has fired up Long Term Evolution (LTE) sites across the province’s three major islands: Tablas, Romblon and Sibuyan.
In the towns of Odiongan, Romblon and Cajidiocan, for example, customers with LTE-capable handsets can experience speeds of between 20 to 60 Mbps, which they can use to stream videos on YouTube, play online games like Mobile Legends, post photos on Facebook or Instagram, or access other online services like mobile banking and e-commerce.
LTE has also been fired up to serve travelers passing through Romblon’s ports like the San Agustin port, which serves as the gateway to Sibuyan and Romblon via ro-ro vessels, as well as the Azagra port in San Fernando.

All Smart, TNT and Sun subscribers can check if their SIMs are LTE-ready by texting SIMCHECK to 5832 for free. They can also check if their location is LTE ready by accessing smart.com.ph/LTE.
