Smart to expand LTE, 3G coverage in Metro Cebu
Smart Communications plans to expand its mobile internet coverage in Metro Cebu over the next three months.
Smart is boosting coverage of its LTE and 3G mobile data services in Metro Cebu as part of its three-year network improvement program,
“The biggest gain will be in LTE coverage, which will quadruple while 3G coverage will double in the country’s largest urban center,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
Smart will re-equip its cell sites to use low-frequency bands such as 700 MHz, 850 MHz, and 900 MHz for its LTE and 3G services. Smart said these frequency bands travel farther than high-frequency bands thus providing better coverage for mobile data services, including indoors.
