Waze now shows 5G spots
The Waze app now shows 5G spots on its interactive map, according to a report by GMA News.
According to Smart Communications, Smart 5G pins can now be seen on the navigation app.
“Smart 5G pins will conveniently show up on the Waze app so subscribers may know if they are on a Smart 5G-covered area, or close to a Smart 5G site where they can access and enjoy next-level speeds on their Smart 5G-certified smartphone,” the company announced in a release.
The feature is now available for Waze users in Metro Manila and key areas in the provinces of Aklan, Bulacan, Cavite, Cebu, Davao del Sur, Iloilo, Laguna, and Pampanga, with more locations to be added soon.
The 5G mobile network is the successor to 4G or LTE (long-term evolution). It “offers significantly faster speeds and ultra-low latency, making it possible to stream ultra-HD videos without buffering, download and upload heavy files in seconds, and play high-bandwidth games without lag,” said Smart.
As part of its ongoing nationwide rollout, Smart has fired up more than 1,400 5G sites across the country, and is planning to grow its 5G base stations by over 3,800 this year.
To use 5G, mobile users should also have 5G-capable handsets and update their SIM to the latest carrier settings.
