The launch of the Rocket WiFi comes amid its ongoing nationwide 5G rollout, Smart has fired up more than 1,700 5G sites across the country – the most extensive coverage in the Philippines.

Smart is at the forefront of the 5G revolution in the Philippines as the first local telco to launch 5G services nationwide last July 2020 in Metro Manila, and strategic areas in Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao. Smart 5G recently went live in Benguet, Misamis Oriental, and Zamboanga Sibugay.
