Smart won the prestigious award for winning in Ookla Speedtest Awards’ Q1-Q2 2022 categories “Fastest Mobile Network”, and “Best Mobile Coverage.”
Protection of subscribers
Smart’s SIM Registration portal was launched in accordance with the SIM Registration Act. This Act aims to reduce the proliferation of text-based criminal activities and SMS scams.
Smart and parent company PLDT have been supporting SIM registration for years. They also support blocking SIMs that send smishing messages or Uniform Resource Locators, which can be used to link to illegal activities.
Smart and PLDT invested almost P3 billion in cybersecurity infrastructure in 2021 to protect the public from emerging cyberthreats and vulnerabilities.
