Less than a week from now — August 25 to be exact — Smart will be the first telecom company to offer LTE in the country. In fact, Smart already has a page set up for their LTE offering with a countdown to the 25th.
Also on the page is a link to their initial subscription which is Plan 3500. With Plan 3500, you get a LTE USB dongle for free. You get a maximum speed of 42Mbps with a 10GB limit for PhP3,500 a month.
Unfortunately, there is no word or even a hint of any LTE smartphones being offered at launch but hopefully we can get more information on that and more at their launch on the 25th.
