Smart rolls out LTE with ‘turbo boost’ in Boracay


SMART Communications, Inc. on Wednesday will roll out the country’s first Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) technology, also known as 4.5G, in Boracay, promising Internet speeds that is thrice the current LTE.

“We’ve come a step forward after LTE and we will roll it out [today] in Boracay. This will be an improvement in coverage, capacity, speed and stability,” Smart and PLDT, Inc. Chief Technology and Information Advisor Joachim Horn told a media briefing yesterday in Makati City.

Describing it as an “LTE with a turbo boost,” the 4.5G will use “carrier aggregation,” or the ability to combine two or more radio frequency bands to deliver bigger bandwidth and faster data speeds to mobile users.
