Mobile operator Smart Communications rolled out on Friday, April 19, what is touted as the ?first and only prepaid LTE service? in the country .
?If you have always wanted to try out the fastest wireless broadband technology in the world but are not keen on subscribing to a postpaid service, Smart prepaid LTE is just the ticket,? said Smart Broadband and Data Internet Service head Lloyd Manaloto.
For as low as P350 for a SIM-only kit, anyone with an LTE-enabled mobile Internet device can have connection speeds of up to 42Mbps with Smart?s LTE network.
?Our SIM-only product comes in different sizes to cater to the latest LTE-capable devices. We have the Nano SIM, as well as the dual-cut SIM for LTE devices that require micro or regular SIMS,? Manaloto said.
For laptop and other device users, meanwhile, Smart prepaid LTE is also available with a bundled USB Plug-It for P5,995 or an LTE Pocket WiFi device for P6,995.
Both offers are pre-loaded with an LTE 299 package which is good for 7 days of unlimited LTE use.
Once the pre-loaded packages have been consumed, users may then avail of unlimited LTE packages for as low as P50 per day by sending the appropriate key word to 2200 (e.g. LTE 50 send to 2200).
Smart LTE is also available on postpaid at LTE Broadband Plans 1299, 1749, and 3500. The service can be enjoyed on an unlimited basis.
