We’re fresh from Smart’s LTE Forum today, and just when we thought that there wouldn’t be talk about the official availability of Smart’s ground breaking LTE service, Ron Molina, Senior Manager for Smart Telecommunications announced that the company would be officially launching the service on August 25, 2012. That’s right kiddos – about a week from now, Smart will finally be launching its ground breaking service, and along with it, possibly LTE enabled devices as well. Where exactly is Smart getting LTE devices (aside from the USB LTE dongle that we used during the beta test)? Possibly from partner NTT Docomo, who has had a commercial LTE service starting 2010. Coincidentally, NTT Docomo also has the same LTE spectrum as smart (2100MHz) which means LTE devices from NTT Docomo will work here.
