Smart Telecom, the telecom company that owns the smart Cell brand has been expanding its mobile coverage but at a slower pace. They first started providing service from the year 2008. It is the third-largest telecom brand after Ntc and Ncell.
Most of the people who are lucky to get stable network coverage of Smart Cell are found to be fully satisfied with the service and the offers.
