Still unsure whether LTE is for you or not? Now you don’t have to cough up so much for high-speed mobile broadband internet with Smart’s LTE Plan 1299.
Smart’s LTE Plan started out at P3500 a month and comes with a 21GB bandwidth cap. They created a lower tier Plan 1749 which comes with a 10GB cap. Now, they’re introducing a much lower tier with their LTE Plan 1299 that comes with a 5GB cap. Unlimited cap until January 31, 2013.
All three plans already include an LTE dongle but an LTE pocket router is also available for an additional P2000 (one-time only). These LTE devices can reach up to 42mbps download speed although we’ve experienced it reaching 60+mbps during Smart’s LTE beta test phase.
Smart LTE is now available in as many as 500 establishments in the metro. For a full list of Smart LTE locations, you may view them here.
If you have an LTE-capable handset, you need to get a separate plan as LTE sims under these plans are purely for data only. You can check Smart’s LTE plans here including those for mobile phones.[Smart]
