This just in! Smart Communications Inc. will finally commercially launch their 4G LTE network on August 25. And guess what, we already have the details for that.

Smart 4G LTE Launch Exclusive

Smart will initially offer the same Huawei E392 USB LTE stick for free at P3,500 a month. We are not yet sure if that monthly plan has a set data limit or is unlimited.

10GB per month on an LTE connection is stupid. Since the speed will be faster, people will tend to browse more (i.e., more Youtube videos, more music and video download, etc.). Given LTE's speed, you can consume the 10gb is less than half a day. I thus don't understand the price premium, especially since 10gb can EASILY be consumed.

Other people might say that 10GB is sufficient for the common user who don't download much. Really now? Which common user in his right mind would spend P3.5k a month for something he can't maximize? The common user might as well pay 999 for the unlimited Smart Bro plan (albeit running in the slower HSDPA/HSPA+). Which brings me to the point that only POWER users, i.e., those who use the internet A LOT, will buy this.

Is this for real? P3.5k for 10GB per month on an LTE connection? Oh common SMART!!!

Pure BS smart please <,< such money hogs

they capped it so that they can assure the service will always be available to all the subscriber on LTE speed. and that's really is one big B.S.

lol crap OP dang i wish it was unli
