Browsing the internet faster than the speeding bullet? Watching youtube buffering in two seconds perhaps? downloading mp3's 10mb file in seconds?
LTE-A (Long Term Evolution - Advanced) or 5G connectivity is reported to deliver data between 100Mbps to 1Gbps which is 10 times faster than 3G Internet and more than double the speed of 4G Internet. With it, a 10MB file downloads for less than a second, buffering is no longer needed for loading YouTube videos, but more importantly it is capable to allocate more network resources to users if ever the situation calls for it. Smart Communications did a test of its services last year which, according to them, resulted to over 100Mbps of speed in areas like Makati City, Davao City, and even in Boracay.
"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,” Orlando B. Vea, Smart chief wireless advisor, said.
