3G comes to the Philippines!

Smart Communications Inc launched 3G on Valentine's Day. 3G or third generation, means subscribers can make video calls to each other initially within the Smart network, provided both cellphones are 3G capable. Calls to other networks, local and foreign, will follow. In addition, subscribers will have the capability to browse/download at very fast speeds, have the ability to"stream" video and audio clips. For example, watching TV or movies in the cellphone is now possible.
I tried a video call with a Smart customer rep yesterday. I also watched trailers of current movies.
In case you didn't know, with a 3G phone, now you will not feel lost in Japan. They use the same 3G band!
