Davao City tourists can now use their mobile phones as a handy travel tool when touring Mindanao’s highly urbanized metropolitan city.
Leading Philippine telco and digital services provider PLDT and mobile leader Smart Communications together with broadcast station TV5 bring the much anticipated Miss Universe 2016 closer to Filipinos everywhere through the country’s most extensive and robust fixed line and wireless networks.
The four Smart cell sites fired up with 700 MHz are located in various parts of Davao City, specifically in Barangay Ma-a near DBP Village, along San Pedro Street near Osmeña Park, at the PLDT building along Ponciano Reyes St., and at Kilometer 4, near the Davao City Golf Club.
The country’s leading telecom and digital services provider, PLDT, and its mobile subsidiary, Smart Communications, are about to welcome a new day with a fresh brand identity that aims to “reflect their desire to empower their customers who are increasingly embracing digital services in their daily lives.”
The new logo symbolizes the powerful convergence of PLDT and Smart, combining fixed and wireless technologies to serve individual and enterprise customers.
PLDT wireless subsidiary Smart Communications (Smart) has fired up its first batch of three LTE (Long-Term Evolution) cell sites using the 700-megahertz (MHz) spectrum, and has posted peak download speeds of up to 222 mbps in one of those sites using LTE-Advanced with Carrier Aggregation. The three Smart cell sites fired up with 700 MHz are in Tanay, Rizal; Matina, Davao City; and Manggahan area in Pasig City, where peak download speeds of 101 Mbps were attained on a single-band, 700-MHz LTE set-up.
Leading telecom and digital services provider PLDT has introduced the country’s first broadband plan that cuts across home and mobile broadband subscriptions with the launch of PLDT HOME DSL Speedster Fam Plan 1299.
It has been more than a decade since Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte implemented this ordinance.
Since then, the Smart-led Torotot Festival has become a way for the city to show the entire country that being safe doesn’t mean a boring New Year celebration.
