    late na sila. pero ganda ng offer nila na 2-year uncapped LTE ha.

    Can I avail the plan without having to buy the ipad or ipad mini? Do I still get that unlimited lte? And is it (lte) like wifi where you have to put password or like home broadband that only one device connects to it? ( sorry for the dumb-like questions. I just don’t have the complete idea)

    • they have postpaid lte if you just want plan but you also need an LTE-capable device to use the network. or get their postpaid LTE with dongle or pocket wifi. LTE is just like 3G, only faster. no need for password but only the LTE device can access the service although it can share it to other devices din if it supports wifi hotspot.

    They shld make it available nationwide.. Unfair for those who are far from participating storesl

  • Ganda naman ng offer na to ng Smart unfortunately Bacolod City pa lang ang may smart LTE coverage sa Negros Occidental.

    Guys, last time I checked in the smart wireless center in ayala avenue, the lte is only until june 30, 2013. After this, the signal you’ll get is only 3G. I still have the flyer here. I don’t know if there were changes, but this was just last monday I checked. At first I also thought the lte is for 24 months but I confirmed with the cst service reps there, the plan has lte only til june 30, like in their unli data plans with free smartphones. Well we can check their website if this was extended.

      I think Unlimited LTE is only for Ipad and Ipad mini only.
