Smart, the undisputed leader in 5G in the Philippines, has been cited as the fastest and most reliable 5G network by Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis.

Supporting Smart’s 5G network is PLDT’s fiber infrastructure of about 615,000 kilometers as of the end of September.

Mobile customers who intend to make the Smart move while keeping their current mobile number can easily secure their slots for Mobile Number Portability (MNP) transactions through the online booking site or via the GigaLife App.

Customers can simply go to Under Store Appointments, they can choose their preferred Smart Store. Once done, they can choose the service Switch to Smart. They can also choose between Switch to Smart – Virtual Appointment or Switch to Smart – In Store Appointment.

After choosing their preferred schedule among the available dates and timeslots, they will receive a confirmation via email.

Interested subscribers can also make the Smart move via the GigaLife App, which is downloadable on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

Under MNP, customers may also switch their prepaid account to a postpaid plan and vice-versa without replacing their mobile number.
