Smart is also hosting two retail events on October 15-16 at Gaisano Mall and NCCC.
Connected Davao is a digital convergence that features experiential zones where subscribers can get to experience PLDT-Smart's products, services, and innovations firsthand. There will also be a selling area where the public can look at the best deals and bundles available. A highlight of the vent is the Digital Discussions where the region's top influencers and business owners will talk about how PLDT and Smart help them pursue their passions.
The event also highlights Smart's full LTE rollout in Davao City. Smart LTE enables you to surf the net in ultrafast speeds of up to 42mbps! That's six times as fast as 3G.
"With Smart LTE, everything is in high definition and real time - videos, games, photos, music and even video calls," said Katrina Luna-Abelarde, Head of Wireless Consumer Operations for Smart.
"Because Smart has more cell sites in Davao City than any other network, subscribers will have the best mobile experience ever. They can watch videos on YouTube, update their friends on Snapchat and instagram and communicate via messaging apps faster and more efficient," added Luna-Abelarde.
PLDT Home and Enterprise
PLDT will put up a connected home, a school and a co-working office and cafe during the Connected Davao event to show.
A connected home powered by PLDT keeps your entertainment and other digital needs close at hand. In this set-up, the public can test out the products using PLDT Home's high speed internet.
In the high speed work station set up, Davaoenos will experience efficient and consistent SME/WiFi and Enterprise solutions.
Try out the Samsung VR and other innovative gadgets in the school set-up.
During the digital discussions, there will be a talk on Entrepreneurship in the Digital Age.
