Smart Communications is Ready for PokeMon Go

Up to this moment, we are still clueless on when exactly PokeMon Go will become officially available here in the Philippines.

Around middle of last month, I speculated that the very popular mobile game would land here before July 2016 ends. But obviously, that didn't happen. (source)
