To welcome the world’s biggest basketball tournament, FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 global partner Smart teamed up with technology partners Huawei and Ericsson to further expand and permanently optimize its LTE and 5G mobile network coverage across all FIBA Basketball World Cup venues.
Smart subscribers trooping to the venues, including Smart-Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City, and the Philippine Arena in Bulacan, can expect a world-class mobile experience. This applies not only during the games from August 25 to September 10 but also for other big events happening after the tournament.
With Smart’s fastest speeds and widest coverage, subscribers can share their favorite gameplays on social media in real-time, send videos of iconic moments to their loved ones and friends in seconds, and upload all their memorable photos online in an instant.
Smart’s boosted network coverage is part of its all-out efforts to bring the best basketball experiences to subscribers and fans, powered by the Philippines’ fastest and best mobile network, as cited by Ookla for three consecutive reporting periods – in Q1-Q2 2022, Q3-Q4 2022, and Q1-Q2 2023.
