SmartBro drops Unlimited Plug-it to Php999

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: December 17, 2009

Smart has reduced it's SmartBro Plug-It Postpaid plans to just Php999 a month of unlimited 3G internet; down from Php1,500 a month in October 2008. There's a catch though. According to Smart Customer Support (*1888), the new Unlimited Plan 999 for Plug-It is limited to speeds of up to 384Kbps. There's a 24-month lock-in period as well. Compare that to the earlier unlimited speed of up to 2MBps, that seems a bit slow. I was thinking if they had to cap the speed (like what Sun Cellular does with their tiered unlimited plans), it shouldn't be anywhere below 1Mbps. Update:…

Smart Bro bumps Plug-It speeds to 5Mbps

Relevance: 74%      Posted on: September 20, 2011

Looks like Smart Bro has upgraded the bandwidth allocation of their Plug-It broadband sticks and now offers up to 5Mbps. I've been hearing about the upgrades for some time now but since the Smart website did not reflect the changes, we had to wait for the official release. The update has just been posted recently, showing this table. The Power Plug-It is now up to 5Mbps (postpaid). The Starter Plug-It is now up to 3.6Mbps (prepaid). Of course, actual speeds will vary with time of day and location. It's going to be pretty hard to validate this but if you…

Plug-It, Uzzap & SmartBro: by the Numbers

Relevance: 73%      Posted on: August 6, 2008

According to a recent disclosure by PLDT, Smart's wireless services are still growing pretty strong. Leading the pack is the fixed-wireless service Smart Bro, closing it to half a million subscribers since it first launched 3 years ago. By end of June 2008, Smart Bro subscribers has reached about 408,000 in number. PLDT revenues from Smart Bro reached Php1.9 Billion for the first half of 2008. However, if you divide that amount by the 408k subscribers, it's just Php776 per month per subscriber (or Php317 Million per month) although MSF right now is pegged at Php999. The discrepancy may be…

Sapido 3G Router vs. SmartBro Share-It

Relevance: 69%      Posted on: August 22, 2010

Recently bought this Sapido Mobile 3G Router so I can compare it with the SmartBro Share-It WiFi router I use in my car and see which one makes for a better mobile internet set-up. For about a year now since I got the SmartBro Share-It, it has found its place inside my car wherever I go around the city. I tried bringing it up north on long trips and it was still working in Bulacan and down south, as far as Sta. Rosa. We even manage to make it work until the end of the South Luzon Expressway. The problem…

Going Mobile with SmartBro Share It

Relevance: 67%      Posted on: September 22, 2009

Last Saturday, I signed up for the unlimited Plan 999 of SmartBro Share It. It was locked for 24 months but they have a promo where you can buy a computer set (Intel Core Dual Core E2200 2.2GHz) for just Php4,000. There were two main reasons why I got SmartBro Share It: I already have PLDT myDSL Plan 1999 at home and have been using it for 5 years now. However, I've been having problems with it lately (slow connection to no connection at times). I was looking for a secondary DSL service in my area to serve as backup…
