Starting today, Sept. 30, Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) is offering Mobile Number Portability (MNP), which will allow consumers to migrate to Smart without having to change their phone numbers.

Customers can switch from a prepaid to a postpaid plan and vice versa under MNP without having to change their phone number.

“MNP is a game-changer,” said Alfredo S. Panlilio, President and CEO of PLDT Inc. and Smart Communications. “Smart is best-positioned to advocate this program and support the government’s need for world-class services for all Filipinos,” he stressed.

Make the Smart Move to PH’s fastest network

To switch to the Smart network, a mobile user must first secure a Unique Subscriber Code from his or her originating provider to serve as clearance and bring it to the nearest Smart Store along with a valid ID and any proof of mobile ownership. From there, Smart shall begin processing the MNP application without any charges.

To know more about switching to Smart, mobile users may also visit or head to the nearest Smart Store.

Smart, the Philippines’ fastest mobile network for four consecutive years, has also been declared the fastest and most reliable 5G mobile network in the country, according to Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis.

Smart has installed over 4,000 5G sites in more than 3,000 places across the Philippines since introducing the country’s first commercial 5G service in July last year, making it the country’s first, fastest, and widest 5G network. From Batanes to Tawi-Tawi, Smart currently serves 96 percent of the population.
