Knowing that the quality of customer experience is not only dependent on the network but also on the devices being used, PLDT-Smart Senior Vice President for Network Planning and Engineering Mario G. Tamayo has expressed that it’s necessary that subscribers are also using capable devices that can support their network’s capabilities.

“To fully utilize the network we are rolling out – whether it’s LTE, LTE-A today or 5G in the future – it is important for customers to adopt the devices that can fully tap the network’s capabilities,” Tamayo explained.
