LTE is fast, but it’s still too expensive. Smart Communications wants make it affordable, though. Smart recently unveiled an LTE broadband plan that’s at least easy on the pocket. For as low as P1299 a month, you can now experience LTE broadband with up to 42mbps of download speed.
Smart LTE Broadband Plan 1299 is designed for those users who needs to use LTE occasionally, but don’t need to rely on LTE alone. The reason for this is that there’s a 5GB cap on this plan. That means that in a month, you can only use up to 5GB worth of data. If you’re a heavy internet user with lots of stuff to download, you need another plan aside from this LTE plan.
Smart currently offers LTE Broadband Plans 3500 and 1749 which also offer speed of up to 42Mbps. These plans naturally have bigger data caps.
Smart’s LTE services is said to be available in more than 500 establishments in 10 cities across Metro Manila. Many of these establishments feature Smart LTE “sticker pins” so it should be easy for users to pinpoint which areas have LTE connectivity. Smart’s LTE hotspots also include malls, restaurants bars, clinics, salons, and other recreational areas. It is also present in some residential areas and areas in Boracay, Cebu, and Davao.
If you are going to get Smart LTE Broadband Plan 1299 now, you can enjoy it on an unlimited basis until January 31, 2013. Subscribers to this plan can also get a Pocket WiFi device for P2,000.
