Smart harnesses world-class Filipino talent for Mobile Network Portability

11/07/2021 03:09:19 PM

Smart Communications has been helping people make the Smart move in relation to the government's Mobile Number Portability Act.

The leading mobile services provider has rallied world-class Filipino athletes and celebrities in support of the government's said initiative, with the roster including s First Filipino Olympic gold medalist Hidilyn Diaz, international basketball star Kai Sotto, and actresses Anne Curtis-Smith and Maine Mendoza, as well as TNT endorsers Sarah Geronimo, KZ Tandingan, Sue Ramirez, Mimiyuuuh and Darren Espanto.
"Smart has always been a big supporter of our local talents, and we have always been at the forefront of elevating Filipino world-class performances to the global stage," said Jane J. Basas, SVP and Head of Consumer Wireless Business at Smart.
Earlier this year, Smart tapped homegrown multi-awarded folk pop band Ben&Ben to create the soundtrack for a campaign which also drew international viewers.
"Just like our local celebrities' game-changing performances, the availability of MNP is also a game-changer for the telco industry--enabling more mobile users to finally make the Smart move without having to change their numbers," she added.
To switch to the Smart network, a mobile user must first secure a Unique Subscriber Code from his or her originating provider to serve as clearance and bring it to the nearest Smart Store along with a valid ID and any proof of mobile ownership.

Smart operates the country's fastest and widest 5G network, with currently over 4,400 5G sites fired up in more than 4,000 locations nationwide.

Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis, has also recognized Smart as the Philippines’ fastest and most reliable 5G network for Q1-Q2 2021, with median download and upload speeds that are twice faster than its closest rival. Ookla has also cited Smart as the fastest mobile data network in the Philippines for the fourth consecutive year.
