KT is leading the new era of innovations in South Korea with 5G, Big Data, Cloud, IoT, Blockchain and other transformative technologies.
For 5G roaming, subscribers need a 5G mobile device to enjoy high-definition video, playing esports and using new digital services.
Smart roamers can maximize the service by subscribing to GigaRoam plans while overseas. All they need to do is to go to roam.smart.com.ph while they are abroad. GigaRoam plans start for as low as P999 for a 5-day data roaming plan.
Smart plans to launch more 5G roaming partnerships to provide world-class roaming services to its travelers.
KT and Smart are members of the CONEXUS Mobile Alliance, which is composed of 9 member-telcos in Asia who are at the forefront of delivering innovative, customer-friendly services for customers of member operators who frequently travel on business.
