Smart Communications Inc. is now partnering with Oppo to offer a phone kit bundle containing the Oppo A71. This bundle will be made available to Smart, TNT and Sun users at a special discounted price and will allow them to upgrade to LTE. With LTE, users can be guaranteed faster mobile internet connection that will make streaming, gaming and downloading a breeze.
Ookla, a global leader in internet testing and analysis, gave Smart’s LTE speed a score of 14.98–with average download speeds of 17.25 Mbps and average upload speeds of 7.65 Mbps. Smart is working on its goal of covering up to 90% of the country’s cities and municipalities by the end of this year. As of today, Smart has already installed over 3,900 LTE base stations to prepare for LTE-A, putting the total count of LTE stations at roughly around 12,600.
Smart’s improved coverage and speed require LTE-capable devices such as the Oppo A71, which makes this phone kit bundle a match made in heaven. The A71 is built with a 5.2” LCD display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. It normally retails for Php 6,990 but will now be sold for Php 5, 988 under the special bundle price.
