Smart Bro now up to 2Mbps

Relevance: 97%      Posted on: October 11, 2008

A new poster ad from Smart Bro promotes their broadband speed to be up to 2Mbps. The operative word is "up to" but that's still a huge jump from the previous 384Kbps. Could this be the one that I predicted earlier? Of course, even running on HSDPA, this is still the max speed and not a sustained speed. I fired up several internet bandwidth meters, hooked up my Smart Bro Prepaid account and positioned my laptop to get an HSDPA signal. This is the result I got after several rounds of testing: The results, 827/350 Kbps, is nowhere near the…

Smart upgrades WiMax and Canopy to 2Mbps

Relevance: 96%      Posted on: October 24, 2011

Smart sent out an announcement last week that they're upgrading all their Canopy and WiMax subscribers from 1Mbps to 2Mbps while retaining the MSF at Php999. The Smart websites still states 1Mbps so that one need to be updated to reflect the new speed upgrade. Not sure if this upgrade is applied automatically to all existing subscribers or you'll have to request it as part of renewal/extension. What we verified is that new subs will get the 2Mbps plan right away, plus a few additional freebies. Anyone out there using Canopy or WiMax and experience the increase in speed?

Smart Bro reverts Plan 999 back to 2Mbps

Relevance: 90%      Posted on: June 6, 2011

Now that was quick -- barely 5 days into the plan downgrade of Smart Bro (just the canopy-type) from 2Mbps to just 1 Mbps (effective June 1, 2011), they reversed it back to 2Mbps again. This is what the page looked like about 2 (June 1 - 5) days ago: This is what it states now: Don't know why the sudden changes. It definitely wasn't just a typo or website copy error (since they added the phrase effective June 1, 2011). Not sure if the changes are also reflected in their printed copy of the service agreement (contract) though. At…

Here's another 3G broadband router sent in for review -- the Edimax 802.11b/g 3G Router.
