MANILA – Smart Communications said Thursday its mobile internet service was down due to “unexpected difficulties” from a systems upgrade.

The company said it was working to restore normal services “as soon as possible.” It did not elaborate on the extent of the outage.

“We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you please bear with us,” Smart said in an advisory to subscribers.

Smart, the mobile unit of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT), has 50 million subscribers.
