Smart Communications Inc., just unveiled the first prepaid LTE service in the Philippines for those who have always wanted to try the service but do not want to be tied into the 24-month holding period in postpaid accounts.
Smart’s LTE was launched in August 2012 as the first and widely-available LTE service in the country with over 800 LTE sites in 49 cities and 69 municipalities. Smart envisions “œLTE for All” that will give Filipinos only the fastest broadband connection and the prepaid LTE will be the ticket to this vision.
Now anyone with an LTE-enabled device can enjoy ultrafast Internet connection speed for up to 42 Mbps with the SIM-only kit for only P350. Smart prepaid LTE is also bundled with the USB Plug-it for P5,995 or the LTE Pocket WiFi device for P6, 995.
The Prepaid LTE SIMs will also come in different sizes to cater to different LTE-capable devices. There’s the nano SIM and the dual-cut SIM for LTE devices that require micro or regular SIMs. All offers are pre-loaded with an LTE 299 package which is good for 7 days of unlimited LTE use.
When the pre-loaded packages are consumed, users may still avail of unlimited LTE packages until June 30, 2013. Just text keyword <LTE Package> to 2200 (see table).
