Smart vs. Globe iPhone 5 LTE- Speedtest Results



The long wait is over as Apple today releases iOS version 6.1 update that enables LTE capability of their latest gadget offering, the iPhone 5. After the official announcement, telco wars between Smart and Globe heats-up anew on Twitter with both telco on trending list - #SMARTiPhone5LTE and #GlobeiPhone5LTE. iPhone 5 users are extremely excited to update their OS to try the latest evolution. TheSummitExpress posts here the speedtest results for Smart vs. Globe LTE.

Smart LTE on iPhone 5 is now available

Today seems to be another milestone for LTE in the country after the successful commercial launch last August 2012.

Social buzz of Smart LTE prevails over Globe on the whole day trends and reactions of netizens. It is attributed to the wider coverage and commercial availability of Smart LTE across Metro Manila and selected areas nationwide. On the press statement of the wirelesss leader, it says that around 300 enodeBs are now active and more than 770 establishments in the 10 cities already subscribed to Smart LTE.

Globe LTE on the other hand is concentrated in Makati City only. As of January 2013, Globe said that LTE coverage expands at select areas of Manila, Pasig City, Quezon City, Taguig City, Muntinlupa, Mandaluyong, Cebu City, and Boracay. The company did not disclosed exact counts of the total on-aired enodeBs.

iPhone 5 users of Smart scores big as observed on some reactions of netizens on Twitter. As a bonus and enticement to loyal subs, Smart gives free LTE service on postpaid data users until April 30, 2013 without separate data package.

To get LTE on iOS 6.1 update, you need a new nano sim if on Globe. No need for new sim for Smart users.

Here are some of the speedtest results from different users posted on social media:

Note that LTE speeds vary depending on the availability of network support in the area (transmission, coverage, prioritization and market). One area may have good LTE speed and other don't have due to several factors. Again, the average of everything counts...

Apple iOS 6.1 on iPhone 5 to intensify data surge on Smart LTE network



With the long-awaited release of Apple iOS 6.1, iPhone 5 users can now enjoy the Philippines’ most extensive Long Term Evolution (LTE) service from the wireless leader, Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart). It is expected that after the first half of the year, data surge on Smart LTE network will prevail.

Smart iPhone 5 users on iPhone Plans 999 and 2499 and Unlidata Plans 1500, 2000, and 3000 can automatically use Smart LTE for free until April 30, 2013.

“Subscribers of Smart iPhone 5 postpaid plans with unlimited data can now get download speeds that are up to 20 times faster than the usual 3G connection on their mobile device,” said Smart Executive Vice President and Wireless Consumer Division Head Emmanuel C. Lorenzana.  “You can enjoy this superior broadband service in a growing number of LTE zones in Metro Manila and in key cities in different parts of the country,” Lorenzana added.

To download iOS 6.1 over-the-air, go to the iPhone’s Settings menu and click on General > Software Update. Hit “Download and Install” and follow the on-screen instructions. Alternatively, iOS 6.1 may be applied via iTunes by connecting the iPhone 5 to a Mac or a PC.

Regarded by telcos and tech pundits worldwide as the fastest fourth generation (4G) wireless connection, LTE is ideal for downloading movies in minutes, lag-free gaming, ultra-fast surfing, buffer-free video streaming, and mission-critical Internet use because of its low latency and fast download speeds.

Launched in August 2012, Smart LTE is the Philippines’ first commercially-available LTE service and is currently available in more than 770 establishments across 10 cities in Metro Manila, and in select areas in Boracay, Cebu, and Davao.

Smart LTE is backed by the country’s only 100% modernized and super-charged mobile network which boasts of more than 54,000kms of fiber optic cabling.

Unlike traditional copper wiring and microwave radios which transmit data through electric and radio signals, fiber optic cables use pulses of light beamed through thin wires of glass.

This ‘optical’ technology allows for efficient, high speed transmission of data from Smart’s core network to thousands of base stations nationwide, providing for unparalleled speed and stability.

“Together with our parent company PLDT, Smart has more than four times the number of fiber optic cables than the competition,” said Lorenzana.

“More fiber means Smart subscribers enjoy faster and more reliable call, text, and data services—an experience which simply cannot be matched on any other service provider,” Lorenzana added.

DepEd scheduled NAT on March 2013



Department of Education (DepEd) releases statement for the upcoming 2012-2013 National Achievement Test (NAT) that is scheduled to administer on March 2013 for a selected levels of elementary and high school students in public and private schools nationwide.

The conduct of examination for 4th year students of public and private schools is set on March 6, 2013, for Grade 3 pupils of public and Madrasah schools, the date of exam is March 12. And on March 13, it is the turn of Grade IV pupils of public and private schools to take the NAT. Education secretary Armin A. Luistro headed the announcement last week.

NAT is administered annually by DepEd to gauge the academic performance in key subjects of elementary and secondary students in both public and private schools. 

Luistro said that only the listed public and private schools are allowed to participate in the upcoming test.

Certificate of rating (COR) per subject will be released for Grade IV examinees. This will reflect the readiness for secondary education, Luistro said on news briefing. 

The NAT used to be called the National Elementary Achievement Test (NEAT) for the grade school level and the National Secondary Achievement Test (NSAT) for the high school level. Both were successors of the National College Entrance Examination (NCEE), an examination administered to gauge the competency of students entering college. The NCEE was abolished in 1994 through Executive Order no. 632 by then education secretary Raul Roco and was replaced by the NEAT and NSAT. When the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) was officially converted into the Department of Education (DepEd), NEAT and NSAT were also abolished and replaced by the National Achievement Test (NAT).

Abra's 'Gayuma' is the most viewed OPM MV on Youtube



The official music video MV of 'Gayuma' (Potion) created by Abra featuring Thyro & Jeriko Aguilar now reached 15 million views ( 15,199,927) and considered as the most viewed OPM music video on Youtube.


Published on September 30 of last year, GAYUMA peaked at #1 on YouTube Philippines and  garnered 2 million views on its first week. Last November 25, 2012, 'Gayuma' got #1 on the MYX Daily Top 10, MYX Hit Chart, and Pinoy MYX Countdown. Currently on week 7 on the chart, it gets spot no. 4 at MYX weekly chart after zooming at top position last week.

The song features a man who is in love with his partner, but it turns out the partner is a gay, which the man realizes later on after being given a potion. It has a similarity on a song released by famous Filipino rapper, Gloc-9 titled 'Sirena' which features a gay person from his childhood to teenage years being abused by his father. 'Sirena' is the second most viewed OPM music video on Youtube after hitting more than 9 million views this January 2013.

Abra or Raymond Abracosa, the man behind the successful collaboration is a rising Filipino hiphop/rap star and fliptop artist. He started his career as a member of Pinoy hip hop group Lyrically Deranged Poets in 2010. He is also a major icon in the Fliptop battle league, as well as a co-host on PTV 4's show iConnect.

Abra is a graduate of University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P). According to Yahoo news, his father graduated from the University of the Philippines (UP) and took up higher education at Stanford University. No wonder the rapper's lyrics are deemed by many as intelligent.

After being featured at ABS-CBN's Sunday shows, Abra earns more followers on social media and his skills is now widely known in the Philippines - the next Gloc-9 or better. He is set to do "Alab ng Puso" (theme of ABS-CBN's Juan dela Cruz) and collaboration with phenomenal box-office King, comedian and artist, Vice Ganda.

On the top trending Google searches over the past seven days in the Philippines, 'abra' and 'gayuma lyrics' are among the top 10 local searches.

TheSummitExpress provides here the 'gayuma lyrics':

Lyrics of Gayuma – Abra

[Verse 1:]
Harana para sa dalaga
Na kung di dahil sa pag-ibig ay tinalikuran ko na sana
Dalaga na balak makasama
Mula sa simula hanggang sa magsipagtunugan yung kampana
Makasama ka na para bang tadhana
At kamatayan lamang ang nag-iisang pintuan kung wala ka
Ang tadhana sadyang kahanga-hanga
Ibang mga babae sa mundo kinalimutan ko na para
Masabi lang sayo na tapos na ang panggiginaw
Ng puso kong naghihikahos pagkat naliligaw
Ngayon paos na paos na sa kasisigaw
Ng iyong pangalang laos na sa kalilitaw
Ngunit bakit parang maraming nakatitig satin
At parang hindi sila sang-ayon sa pag-ibig natin
Mahal kita kahit may pagka-alanganin
Pagka’t satin mas mukha ka pang lalaki kesa sakin

[Chorus:]
Hindi ko maipaliwanag
(Hindi ko maipaliwanag ang lahat)
Kung ba’t marahil ikaw ang laging hinahanap
(Ikaw ang laging hinahanap sa pagkat)
Paggising ko ikaw ang nasa isip
Ka-date kita hanggang sa panaginip
Kasi ikaw ang iniibig ko
(Ikaw lang at wala nang iba)

Ngunit hindi ko maipaliwanag
(Hindi ko maipaliwanag ang lahat)
Kung ba’t marahil ikaw ang laging hinahanap
(Ikaw ang laging hinahanap sa pagkat)
Paggising ko ikaw ang nasa isip
Ka-date kita hanggang sa panaginip
Kasi ikaw ang iniibig ko

[Verser 2:]
Ang buhay parang dagat, na kung saan lahat tayo nagtipon
Sa dami ng isda nakabingwit ako ng hipon
Hindi ka lang maganda pag-hindi nakatalikod
Parang ipot ka ng ibon magpakipot
Hindi kanais-nais pero hulog ka ng langit
Nakakaadik kahit puro kuto ka sa anit
Kalait-lait pero kahit ubod ka ng pangit
Sakin maskaakit-akit ka pa pagnatuto kang mag-ahit
Hindi ka man napiling ikaw lang ang kapiling ko
Kahit hindi pilitin, ikaw ang pipiliin ko
Para kang Rebisco ang sarap ng feeling ko
Ikaw ang namimiss ko, mismo
At kung kasama ka, parang naglakad ng aso, kaso di eh
Paggalit si Son Goku parang kamukha mo babe
Pero ika’y bituin kapag sa langit nakadungaw
Kahit parang in between ka ng babae at bakulaw

[Chorus:]
Hindi ko maipaliwanag
(Hindi ko maipaliwanag ang lahat)
Kung ba’t marahil ikaw ang laging hinahanap
(Ikaw ang laging hinahanap sa pagkat)
Paggising ko ikaw ang nasa isip
Hiling kita hanggang sa panaginip
Kasi ikaw ang iniibig ko
(Ikaw lang at wala nang iba)

Ngunit hindi ko maipaliwanag
(Hindi ko maipaliwanag ang lahat)
Kung ba’t marahil ikaw ang laging hinahanap
(Ikaw ang laging hinahanap sa pagkat)
Paggising ko ikaw ang nasa isip
Ka-date kita hanggang sa panaginip
Kasi ikaw ang iniibig ko

[Verse 3:]
Isang araw dumalaw, sakin ang aking dating kasintahan
Ang sabi nya “Uy! Meron akong nabalitaan”
Nang ikwento nya ako’y napaisip
Sabay napatahimik nang sinabing “Hindi yan tunay na pag-ibig!”
Ilang araw hinanap bago makita ang sagot
Kung tama ang hinala, ito’y mabisa na gamot
At nang aking inumin saka ko lang naunawaan
Gayuma nga! Lang hiya! Ako’y naloko lamang!
Nilinlang, dinaya, at inuto ng matindi
Ngayon ay pili ko na kung sinong kupal sa hindi
Ito ay pelikula na binuo patabinge
Isa kang malaking libag na tinubuan ng pisnge!
Alam mo? Mukha kang tuhod na may bukol, na may sugat, na may nana!
Ikaw ang dahilan kung ba’t nasulat ‘tong harana
Para sa dalaga na kung di dahil sa gayuma ay pinaliguan ko ng bala

[Chorus:]
Hindi ko maipaliwanag
(Hindi ko maipaliwanag)
Kung ba’t marahil ikaw ang laging hinahanap
(Ikaw ang laging hinahanap sa pagkat)
Paggising ko ikaw ang nasa isip
(Badtrip!)
Hiling kita hanggang sa panaginip
(Ang pangit mo talaga!)
Kasi ikaw ang iniibig ko
(Ikaw lang at wa… ah… teka.. teka.. teka.. teka..)

Ngunit hindi ko maipaliwanag
(Pero ngayon ay maliwanag na lahat)
Kung ba’t marahil ikaw ang laging hinahanap
(Di ako makapaniwala sa pagkat)
Paggising ikaw ang nasa isip
(Kalokohan)
Ka-date kita hanggang sa panaginip
(Hay nako…)
Kasi ikaw ang iniibig ko

Syempre yan ay dahil sa gaga-GAYUMA
Gaga-GAYUMA
Dahil sa Gaga-GAYUMA
Gaga-GAYUMA
Dahil sa Gaga-GAYUMA
Gaga-GAYUMA
Dahil sa Gaga-GAYUMA
Gaga-GAYUMA

TheSummitExpress congratulates Abra for his great achievements. We look forward for his rising career.

Smart offers most affordable ‘Tri-Net Unli Call & Text 25’



Banking on the sheer size of the combined Smart, Talk ‘N Text, and Sun Cellular subscriber base, wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) launches its biggest ever and most affordable unlimited offer called ‘Tri-Net Unli Call & Text 25’.


The new product allows all Smart Prepaid subscribers to enjoy unli calls and send unli SMS to the combined 68.6 million subscribers of the three wireless brands, all at only P25 for one day. The package also includes 20 SMS to other networks.

“With this tri-net version of our bestselling Unli Call & Text 25, we are ramping up our prepaid business by turning a great offer into an even better one,” said Melissa Limcaoco, head of prepaid and postpaid marketing at Smart.

“It’s still unli, but it’s now tri-net – which means that Smart Prepaid subscribers can stay in touch and enjoy virtually endless conversations and SMS exchange with their friends and family, but their world has become so much bigger since now they can also call or text people using Sun. What’s best, we’ve kept it to its flat rate of only P25 for 24 hours’ use,” Limcaoco added.

To avail of Unli Call & Text 25, subscribers must have at least P25, then register to the package by sending UNLI25 to 6406.

Once registered, users can start sending an unlimited number of tri-net SMS to any Smart, Talk ‘N Text, or Sun number. They can enjoy unli calls by calling *6406 plus the 11-digit mobile number, e.g., *640609181234567.

“Combine the flexibility of keeping in touch with the most number of people via calls or SMS with Smart’s superior nationwide network coverage, and you have a service that simply cannot be matched – and that’s Tri-Net Unli Call & Text 25,” Limcaoco added.

Limcaoco refers to the recently reported results of the National Telecommunications Commission’s (NTC) 4th Quarter Quality of Service (QoS) Benchmarking tests, validating the superiority of the ‘supercharged’ Smart network over competition.

“This supercharged network is what allows us to offer services that are extremely high in value but very easy on the pockets,” ended Limcaoco.

Smart has over 52.6 million mobile subscribers as of end-September 2012, more than 90% of whom are on prepaid. They are served by a network of over a million Smart Load retailers all over the country selling Smart Load and other bucket offers.

Smart has the largest and most pervasive cellular and broadband network infrastructure in the country, providing coverage to over 99% of the population.
