SMART fires up '5G' or LTE-Advanced in PH

Setting the next phase of mobile communication technology in the Philippines, Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) fires up 5G wireless technology LTE-Advanced (LTE-A), to provide an unparalleled speed of internet experience to all its subscribers.


Recently, Smart switched on LTE-A at the Smart Jump Center in Mandaluyong City after it pioneered the deployment of Long-Term Evolution (LTE) or 4G technology in the country two years ago.

LTE-A, referred to as ‘5G’ by reports on leading global mobile operators AT&T and T-Mobile, delivers data from between 100 megabits per second (mbps) to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps), or ten times faster than 3G services and more than twice as fast as 4G services.

By firing up LTE-A technology on its network, Smart joins only a handful of carriers around the world with an LTE-A network, along with leading mobile operators in South Korea, United States, Singapore, Australia, and Hong Kong.

Even as our 3G and 4G networks continue to be unrivaled, Smart becomes the first operator to leap into the future and put the Philippines at par with the world’s most advanced countries in terms of mobile communications technology,” said Orlando B. Vea, founder and Chief Wireless Advisor of Smart.

With LTE-A, a 10MB file takes less than a second to download, YouTube videos no longer have to buffer, and video calls are almost lag-free. But beyond speed, LTE-A’s main feature is also its capability to allocate more network resources to users when the need arises. Smart started testing LTE-A across the country in August last year, delivering results of more than 100Mbps in Makati City, in Boracay, and in Davao City during the Kadayawan festival.

Facebook Spams: Identify and DELETE!

Facebook Spam is an unwanted spam content appearing on Facebook with user-generated content. It generally appears with a very striking title accompanied with fascinating visuals that will surely capture the interest of the users.


These fake posts and videos that effortlessly go viral were created by so called cybercriminals. Cybercriminals are continually sending out different Facebook video spams that will just lead you to a must to-do tasks like surveys and whatnot, and with that, please do not complete the surveys, share or "like" a website in order to just view a video.

Cybercriminals or in layman's term, scammers, are the individuals behind this scam that will change the website names and images, so watch out for similar scams with different website names and images because sharing this web page will only help spread this scam to other Facebook users. And, completing the surveys will only generate revenue for the cybercriminals behind this scam.

I hope this post will help and guide you in identifying what are spam posts for you to be able to avoid them and seeing them again on your newsfeed. Well. Spam posts are very easy to determine by just a glimpse, but because of its impactful snippet, users’ curiosities spring up and eventually may lead to clicking the bait.

Again, going into this kind of deception will just generate revenue for the benefit of the scammers. The victim on the other hand, will not be able to view the video or the news that they were promised, because it doesn't exist. At the end of the day, users will be up hanging for nothing.

If you have shared this scam, remove the share Facebook post from your Timeline or Wall, because this will help stop the spreading of this spam. Or if you see people doing so, just simply Hide the post; if you see a Remove button, then hit it!

Titles of some spam posts are as follows:
  • This woman has an orgasm on a Roller Coaster
  • Aliens Growing on Woman's Breast
  • Hungry Bear Tears Woman to Pieces
  • Giant Snake Eats Man Alive

If you are asked to share, "like”, complete surveys in order to view a video, picture or other content, it is then the first sign that you are being tricked or scammed. You do not need to do any of these things in order to view any content on Facebook and the rest of the internet. As easy as that.

Stay safe and don't get fooled!

Going YESSS, YAMAN with my 4 Pre-Loved Items!

Looking inside my wardrobe realizing that I have plenty of stuff that beyond my consumption. Actually most of them are items that I have not used yet even once ever since I got them. Since I left them unmanageable, I decided to sort them all out, give away to my friends and some to sell.


At first, selling my preloved items is quite hard for me because of having trouble suffering from separation anxiety. But knowing the idea that I can recoup my initial expenditure by just selling those pushes me to materialize everything. So here as follows are my preloved items and its story and reason why I’m selling them apart from I can no longer keep them.


Among the four items that I'm selling, this pair of kicks, I got from Gibi Shoes is my favorite. It's actually a limited edition stud’s boots wear-able on any events or parties that you want to go to. The genuine leather on the inside and the combination of canvas and leather on the outside, nailed the boots to become usable for a long time. The spikes are properly studded, easy to clean boots and most importantly, easy to carry. I haven't used this pair yet since it’s quite big for me. This pair is actually a birthday presents to me, but I need to let it go now so others can use this fierce kicks and the shoes to serve its real worth.


This second item is the newKube MP3 Player. A compact MP3 player that delivers clear, crisp audio playback of music optimized by genre in a tiny device with a long battery life. Very handy and you can bring it anywhere you go. Bought this one online and used it twice during my travel. Since am using my phone now to play my favorite songs, my newKube is now left unattended inside my drawer.


Next item is an Android stuff toy. I am a member of the Google Business Group - General Santos, and I have a lot of Google products in room including this android toy. Reason of selling, this is that I have a plenty of this already and even have android stuff toys in different Google colors.


Same with my Android stuff toy, I also have a handful of Google sunnies, so I have to sell some so others can have this kind of sun protection also. Both my sunnies and stuff toys were all the way from Google HQ in California, U.S.A.

That’s it! If you wish to buy any of these items, don't hesitate to email me at gemtadefa@gmail.com for the pricing.
