Smart Bro Mobile goes Prepaid

Update: The Smart Bro Microsite, Sugod Na just went up. Check it out here!

As most of you may have notice, I’ve got ads up for the new Smart Bro Prepaid. Couldn’t blog about it until the banners were up.

The Pre-Paid Kit for Smart Bro Mobile 3G is available for Php4,500, one-time. That includes the USB dongle, the SIM card and a 30-peso free load (that’s one and a half hours of free credits).

The pre-paid kit can be re-loaded with Smart Bro pre-paid cards worth Php100 and Php300. You cna also use e-Load to top up your account for as low as Php30 from any of the local e-Load stations (i.e. tiange)

I saw one 3G USB dongle in a shop at MOA and they cost Php7,500. The Php4,500 looks cheaper. I still use both of my HSDPA phones to hook up but the dongle’s advantage is you don’t have to worry about running out of cellphone battery.

    medyo mahal parin yung 4500 =)

  2. autocad says:

    oo nga. mahal yung usb dongle at yung rates. paano kung laging mabagal yung connection di lugi ka lagi.

  3. manu says:

    sana kahit mga 2,500 man lang yung usb dongle.

  4. Kyle SD says:

    At first, it may be mahal pero when you use it very often lalo na pag on the go ang lifetyle mo makakamura ka. Ako I’m gonna get one!

  5. me says:

    mahal nga ang rate..

  6. me says:

    ang weroam AFAIK IINM is 1.8k/month unlimited un, pano naging mura to?

  7. MiGs says:

    ummm as i’ve pointed out here: http://migs.wordpress.com/2008/04/02/smart-bro-plug-it-anywhere-prepaid/

    1. why get a separate gadget when you can use your mobile phone as modem

    2. you still need to use a mobile phone to reload it and check for balance.

    3. Its expensive. getting a plan from smart is still better.

  8. Jeric says:

    @ MiGs

    As far as I know, you can reload your SmartBro Prepaid even without a mobile phone. You just need to look for an e-loading store and the Smart e-load and the SmartBro load are the same. You could check the balance of your SmartBro prepaid through I website.

    But I agree with point 1 & 3.

  9. jake lim says:

    1) Not all mobile phones are 3G capable. Nokia only sold 70M 3G phones out of over 1 Billion Nokia phones worldwide.

    2) There’s software reloading via PC via Prepaid card and there’s e-Load available.

    3) Smart already has a Post Paid plan. This Pre-Paid Plan is complementary. This is for those who are with Globe plans and don’t want to switch plans with Smart but still want Smart 3G.

  10. yuga says:

    I think Smart is just covering all of its bases — WeRoam, Smart Bro Fixed, Smart Bro Mobile Plan, Smart Bro Mobile Prepaid. I guess that’s the best way to target various segments of the market.

    I heard that the 3G market in the Philippines is still very small so all players are trying their best to capture the biggest slice of the pie.

  11. penoi says:

    pede kaya ito sa smartbro fixed??? kasi may antena pa ako ng smartbro na hindi nila kinukuha.. heheheh…

  12. calvin says:

    paano pag mahina signal kung san ka pupunta? for example sa province. hindi ba lugi ka?

  13. yuga says:

    Actually, because of such circumstances, this pre-paid kit makes more sense — you only pay for hours you used. So if you can’t get good connection for a month ‘coz you’re in the province, you don’t pay anything since you didn’t use the connection time.

  14. Dexter says:

    medyo mahal pa rin yung 4500

  15. ChrisMo says:

    The province signal is my primary concern, has anyone cared to test the connection speeds while in transit? i.e., bus going to somewhere…

    I hope the advertised speed is also holds true in provincial areas…

  16. erjanorbe says:

    The expense depends on the user. If you’re always on the go, but if it’s just for emergency use (like submitting documents, etc.) prepaid is the best for you. If you’re a power user and you want mobility, then go for a post paid unlimited plan.

    P4,500 is just a one time payment though, and it comes with the USB modem, sim card and P30 credits rather than getting a third party one which costs P5k and above.

    But the best way is, if you have a 3G phone all you’re going to do is connect it to your laptop and using it as a wireless modem without paying P4,500. The downside, as stated above, is your phone’s battery life.

  17. Hezron says:

    Very expensive, why not buy LG KU250 which is capable to be used as a modem and it’s cheap. I think CP battery is not a reason not to use a CP as a modem, coz if you’ll connect it to a Desktop i’m sure the battery will still be charged coz it’s connected to PC usb.

    That dongle is really expensive including the rate. Grabe naman ang SMART!

  18. yuga says:

    @Hezron, I think the dongle was just bought whole-sale from a supplier. Possibly ZTE or Huawei. (Same thing they did with all the Motorola Canopy for Smart Bro.)

    And as mentioned above, if you buy the dongle from a retail shop it costs you Php7,500. That’s based on the price given to me by Silicon Valley/Electroworld in MOA.

  19. sylv3rblade says:

    Expensive yes.
    But is it worth it? As much as I hate to say it, it’s a yes.

    I won’t be surprised if people bashed this because of the initial price and Smart Bro’s past woes but as of yet, we’ve still to see some move from Globe (or any other mobile ISP) to take a bite at Smart’s share.

    +1 rep for the people at Smart for this product/service

    -1 rep for still not acknowledging our disconnection from SmartBro =(

  20. ChiQ Montes says:

    I am definitely tempted to avail of this service. Yuga, have you tried this urself?

  21. rhodamarie says:

    I am currently a Globe Visibility subscriber, paying 2k per month, unlimited. I have been using this for almost two years now, however my problem is the data card. The plan came with a PCMCIA card but the new laptops now have Expresscard. =( Would you guys know of any available adapters in the market? OR at least a USB modem I could use to replace this Huawei E620 data card?

  22. Roger D says:

    My bottom line is the speed, I used PLDT WeRoam and I was very very very disappointed with it. Mabilis pa 14.4k na dial-up, and to think I am in the metropolis. Kahit anong sabihin ng rep, it was so slllloowwww. I hope this one, it is the opposite.

  23. Tahn says:

    They definitely expanded their horizons. But I still hate Smart’s service.

  24. franz says:

    quite expensive for me

  25. vhonne says:

    mahal p rin… d2 kc sa shop samin… 15 pesos lng per hour… ung 30 pesos n load nila… pumapatak ng 20 pesos per hour… magaling p sa shop n lng mag-internet…

    pero smartbro subscriber po ako… ehehe…

  26. TREB says:

    for rhodamarie or yuga, kindly comment naman sa globe visibility, takot kasi ako sa 24months lock-in period nila. globe says up to 1.4mbps. ok lang if it,s true, if not lugi sa 2k na monthly. what’s the speed you are getting. I’m from las pinas.

  27. Rondon says:


    While I don’t own one, I’ve personally seen a Globe Visibility in action. I cannot comment on the lock-in period though.

    The one I saw used a Huawei E220. Varying speeds depending on what signal you get:
    Edge / GPRS – estimated near dial-up up to 384kbps
    3G – greater than 384kps

    I saw it download torrent at 40kb/s with a 3G signal.

    No problem working on Win2K / WinXP. It even worked with the Asus eee PC too (with Xandros default OS). Had trouble making it work with Ubuntu though (on the same eee pc).

  28. nagred says:

    OK lang sana kung lahat damihan naman ng Smart ang area ng kanilang 3G coverage. para di lang gprs ang nakukuha pag labas sa 3G area nila.

  29. hukblahap says:

    I’m really planning to get this one… But before buying one, i need to read more comments both constructive and destructive.

    I worried becuz since its thru a mobile phone there would still be a great difference between using a real PC and a mobile phone. Issues like web caching, signal traffic, QoS(strong & reliable connection, no DCs), security, uncontrolled interferences, like bad weather, signal coverage, etc. etc.

    The most important thing is, can it handle video/audio streaming or large file torrent downloads? I mean “384 kbps” is more than enough for it… but is it reliable?

    Thnx in advance.

  30. baby_honey says:

    for heavy user.. hindi sulit…

  31. RafaelC378 says:

    I use Wifi & other broadband to download stuff from Itunes (I have a US Store Account), mostly songs & TV Shows. Aside form that, I don’t really need broadband. But using dialup for that purpose is maddeningly slow. It takes 2 days of 24/7 downloading to complete a 1hr (~500Mb show). So I splurged for the SmartBRO Prepaid.

    No complaints so far. Am using it to download some videopodcasts and it takes only minutes what would take hours using dialup.

    For technical stuff, I got the following connection & download data from speedtest.net:

    Download 414kb/s
    Upload 43kb/s
    Ping: 811ms

    Not bad. I’m located in the Sampaloc Area near UST for 3G coverage reference.

  32. mijoba6 says:

    I prefer DSL!!!! wired connection is better than wireless. Wireless needs signal.

  33. rhoda says:

    for TREB: Globe Visibility is sulit if:
    1. you’re not getting new laptops within the 24-month lock-in period. The software that comes with the data card is not working with Windows Vista.
    2. you are really mobile. kasi if you’re gonna use it at home… mag smartbro ka nalang
    3. there is good 3G signal in the places where you plan to use your Visibility.
    Kaya lang… latest I heard, they don’t offer Visibility to individual plan holders na eh, pang corporate nalang daw.

  34. Lito Oliveros says:

    I have been using the SmartBro prepaid service for the past 3 weeks, and so far satisfied with the speed and reliability. This comes in handy, if Wifi is not available.

  35. Denver says:

    I’d still like to get my own dongle than use my phone. For one not all phones are 3G and HSDPA. The device is already HSDPA ready and you can actually get HSDPA speeds. I do have one by the way.

    It is a bit expensive but it’s just like buying a phone as well. I guess it also depends on how much you need it.

  36. edwin dalmino says:

    i’m living in bcda taguig c5… i have smart bro pre paid… sabi nyo mablis at mura how come that ni website nyo di ko ma buksan..dahil laging wala cignal..i’m lucky today na open ko ang web nyo..di ko nga ma balance my balance open>>>wala kwenta pag tyagaan ko nalang to SMART BRO NYO>>>>

  39. franz says:

    Smartbro prepaid SUCKS. I have been getting 35 kpbs ever since I bought it even I am in a 3G site.

  40. well, smart bro is one of the best internet connect here in the philippines, because the speed are very much fit to our needs, compare with globelines (broadband) there sucks!

  41. jhayne says:

    well..ndi ako msaya..ang dami ng hassle n nngyari skin s smart bro prepaid n to! to the point n ngsadya n ko s wireless center at pnalitan nla ung unit ko! asar toh! pg ngload ng 30, for one hour q lng xa ngagamit..bsta pg P20 p remaining bal. mo, asahan m for half hour nlng un imbes n one hour pa! pakshet! hirap p kontakin ng teknikal suport n yan! bwisit! kung di lng talaga nbili q n nku ndi ko pgtytyagaan!

  42. Jan Blando says:

    The price of Smart Bro Prepaid has gone down to P3,800 from P4,500. http://smart.com.ph/SmartBro/Products/BROPrepaid.htm

  44. apatheticGirl says:

    I just wish that SMART advises its subscribers what places/cities/provinces ang meron na 3G signal na OK pang browse. So there won’t be dissapointed people.

    Is it ok to use smart bro prepaid in the province? Exact location is San Fabian, Pangasinan.


  47. TellyBuhay says:

    Just got the Smartbro prepaid.

    My boss got disappointed with globelines, due to it’s frequent connection problems.

    We now use the smartbro as a backup internet connection, aside from our compass internet dialup connection.

    and we’re also planning on getting pldt dsl.

    so now, we got 4 different internet connections in our office.

  48. REY says:


    I am writing to this forum, to inform you of the possible HEAD ACHE that you may encounter if you avail SMART BRO PRE PAID.

    You will not encounter problem connecting to SMART NETWORK, but as you use your internet, you will notice that you cannot connect to any site that you want to visit.

    Now, as you look into you connection, you will see that your PC is connected to SMART Network No. 57 or 58, etc. etc…. BUT Smart Network to Internet is NOT CONNECTED……

    P10 per 30minute block????? it should be per minute charge. its not really P10 per 30minute. you start connect at 9:25am then stop at 10:45am (20 minutes) and you will pay P20. is that P10 per 30minutes? hello!!!

  51. TheGameEdge says:

    Do they have a LIST’s of PLACES for Available 3G Networks?

  54. barbie says:


    Lahat ng claims nila puro panloloko: 384 kbps DAW. I tested it at speedtest.net and it just registered a measly 23 kbps. Yes, 23. Accessing Youtube, Friendster and YM are out of the question. I can’t even use Firefox as my browser.

    Only P20 for one hour of internet. Sure – but since download speed is TOO SLOW, ubos na P100 mo, wala ka pang na-open na websites.

    So please, if you’re not a masochist and you still value P3800, DON’T buy Smartbro. And do your family and friends a favor – warn them too.

  55. tins says:

    sa mga nagrereklamo sa smartbro, baka naman ang may problema ang pc or laptop nyo mismo.. or baka naman masyado nyong sineryoso na kahit saan me signal ang smartbro. Isipin nyo wireless yan, kung sa pinakasulok ng bahay nyo kayo nakasiksik eh malamang gapagong na nga ang takbo ng net ninyo, humanap naman kayo ng mas malakas lakas na signal, hindi porke sinabing accessible na ang smartbro anywhere eh kung saan nyo maisipan maupo at mag surf eh pupuesto na kayo.. mag isip naman kayo, wag puro reklamo!

  56. dee says:

    i inquired about smartbro prepaid. they’re offering 2,500 na lang for the device and sim. but when you’re not happy with it you cannot return it. you bought it na kasi. or if you want to upgrade to their prepaid. still you can’t return it. your only option is to sell it. if that’s the case, meron kaya di nagbebenta? :)

  57. Juck says:

    How long does it take for the sim card with a zero (0) load balance to be permanently disconnected?

  58. badtrip says:

    kakabadtrip, until now di pa napapalitan ung usb namin…. never ko pa nagamit ung simula nung binili namin…. di gumagana ung usb nung binili namin…. tapos wala daw available kaya di pa napapalitan…. payo lang if bibili kayo ng smartbro wag sa lipa… walang alam mga customer service nila…. buti pa sa moa at batangas.,,
    almost 2 wiks na until now wala parin….. shit talaga….

  59. john says:

    sa mga taga davao.

    totoo bang mabagal ang smart bro prepaid dito sa davao kahit sa city proper?

  60. budoy says:

    hmmm.. pwede ba natin ireklamo ang smartbro sa NTC kc base sa mga reaction nyo puro BOGUS and ADS lang cla. at Pwede ba natin clang ireklamo sa DTI?? ks di pwedeng NO RETURN NO EXCHANGE policy eh.. at if ever man po na maayos na ang connection ng smartbro sana magkaruon din ng unlimited service, kunwari magloload ka ng certain amount, lets say 1000.. sana unlimited connection na xa for 30days… lol suggestion lang po. God bless po sainyo..

  61. rj says:

    smartbro prepaid is a total disappointment. better look for a better source of wireless internet.

  63. Fredick says:

    muras nalang ito ngayon…ok naman connection ko sa bahay..

  64. SilverShark says:

    I’ve been using SmartBro since February of this year and so far it serves its purpose for me, as a backup internet connection. Madalas slow pero minsan nakakatyempo ako ng at least 600kbps (Pasay. I’m using it now here in Mendez, Cavite and grabe bagal dito (0.02Mbps) pero it’s better than nothing. Pang-email lang naman. Overall pwede na. It’s still a young technology pa naman and I’ll still give it more time to improve (hopefully!) :)

    shit tong smart bro prepaid na to ah. kasinungalingan lahat ng ad nila. ni hindi makausap ng maayos yong nasa kabilang linya.

  67. Renren says:

    My speed connection was fast, thats why i dont understand others complaining so much. Maybe it’s because of your System. At saka, hindi naman ganun kamahal, magkano lang difference.

  68. Naomi says:

    mura lang naman ang smart bro at practical gamitin kasi magbabayad ka lang naman kapag ginamit mo. In my case, hindi naman ako nagbababad sa internet kaya naman mas nakakatipid ako. Hindi na ko nagbabayad monthly kasi nga prepaid naman. At lagi ko pa dala kasi convenient gamitin. Dapat lang wag kayo sa kasuluksulukan pumwesto kung gusto niyo ng signal.

  69. eimaj08 says:

    Ok nman sakin ang smartbro. 3G nman kc area kaya ok ang signal. Dpende lang tlga sa area at specs ng pc or laptop. Tska tipid kc mbabawas lang sa load mo ung time na mco2nsume mo.

  70. mark delos reyes says:

    tama ka dyan kuya ang mura niya tapos ang tipid tska sympre dipende talaga sa gamit mong pc..try niyo po tong link na to para makita niyo kung bakit mabagal sainyo sang smart bro kasi baka di sa pinakaconnection baka sa computer.

  132. Don Ty says:

    There has been too much talk about smartbro frustration.

    How about a class action lawsuit?

  133. alvin says:

    walang kakwenta kwenta yang smart bro prepaid sayang lang pera nyo puro panololoko lang wala naman talaga sa performance.

  134. kristin says:

    bwisit ang smartbro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wala pa akong 1 hour sa pagbrowse sa web ubos na load ko.


  135. ERMIN says:

    pambihira lalo akong naguguluhan- me nagrereklamo, me pumupuri, malalaman ko lang siguro kung bibili ako, kaso baka naman kung bumili na ako, makakarelate naman ako sa mga nagrereklamo….kakalito??????

  136. rhodamarie says:

    i think it all boils down now to the location, and the strength of the signal. i have both smartbro plugit and globe tattoo. back at home, smartbro works really fast. globe doesn’t connect at all. here naman in makati, super bilis ng globe, intermittent naman ang smart.
    in terms of cost… halos pareho lang. si smartbro, every 30-minute blocks and pagbabawas niya ng load while si globe naman, 15-minute blocks.
    so if you are very very particular about and need instant connectivity anywhere, suggest you buy both.

  137. mark says:

    kuya kung ako sayo magbro ka nalang kaysa globe tattoo mas bwisit un. nakakailang bukas palang ako ng mga website na pinupuntahan ko naDDC na kagad.take note kuya pag nagbukas ako ng website ang tagal bago makapasok dun sa site.

  138. mark says:

    mas sangayon pa ko kay kuya rhodamarie pero kuya ang bagal ngayon ng connection ng globe dahil sa mga service nila.kahit sa cellphone nagdodown ang signal nila.grrhhhh..

  139. erving says:

    yeah. i agree to what mark said.the signal of globe sucks.

  140. john says:

    ei guys are you really sure that mabagal ang connection ng globe?

  141. erving says:

    yeah bro ang bagal ng globe tattoo wag ka na magbalak magglobe men.

  142. paolo says:

    everyone napanood niyo ba ung bagong commercial ng globe?

  143. mark says:

    napanood ko ung bagong commercial nila.un ba ung about sa unli call n text?

  144. paolo says:

    di ung about dun sa plug it.

  145. mark says:

  146. paolo says:

  167. Liezl says:

    Hi. How to check my balance without logging in to webconnect? i forgot the keyword and where to send. thanks.

  168. pierre says:

    broadband in the philippines is no different than dial-up. the only difference is it’s wireless. but dial-up is still faster. even if your prvoider will say 2mbps, thats BS. they only alot 384kbs for you actually while they charge you 2MBps.

    imagine it takes 15 minutes to log-in to gmail (basic html view), another 2 minutes to access your first email message, then another 15 to forever minutes to access your second email. all in all, it’s cheaper to just go to an internet cafe and you can download all you want in less than 30minutes.

    KILL BROADBAND, KILL BIG INTERNET PROVIDERS. DSL is way much better but avail services of small companies. Big companies think they are God and that you have no choice. with DSL from small companies, i can download 400Mb file in 30-45 minutes.

  169. mac says:

    sobrang bagal na putol putol pa!!! lugi ako sa 4,500 !!! nag dial up nlang sana ako na prepaid card. naka mura pa ako!!! mukhang pera yang smart… almost no signal cya kya nauubos agad ung load ko!!! dont try to buy it!!!

  170. Saporo says:

    I bought a smart bro and finish the free 30 min load. Unfortunately, I was looking ( at smart website, blogs, answers.com etc ) for instruction on how to load the smart bro prepaid cards I bought but to no avail. I tried calling smart but they have an auto reply answering machine so long and fully charged with ads that’s eating up your battery. Somebody knows how loading is being done please? Thanks in advance.

  171. danix says:

    hi! what is the differnce between weroam and smart bro usb? thnx.

  172. Rain says:

    Punyeta yang smartbro prepaid na yan. Basura lang yan at wag na wag kayong bibili nyan.
    Mga magnanakaw lang ng pera yang mga nagpapalakad nyan. All the time it has no connection at all.
    Anlakas pa ng loob nila na ipakita and upload and download rate mo eh lagi nmang zero. Shame on them.

  173. Rain says:

    Now if you want to waste money this is the perfect choice. Go ahead and purchase smartbroken. Their service sucks and really crappy. To hell with them.

  174. Eric says:

  176. You construct a crucial point in Philippines, Technology News & Reviews. Formulated some great data here. I reckon that if more folks conceived about it in that mode, they would have a better comprehension of the subject. I’m blunt and genuine, that way everyone recognizes what I mean.

  177. mherluis says:

    pano pa ba mag balance sa smart bro

  178. MICH says:

    in my case i checked my Smart Bro. Balance by placing the SIM to my Cellphone and checked the balance and viola!!

  181. nep says:

    Hi! is it possible to use regular prepaid card of smart worth P100 to smart bro? I just bought a regular smart prepaid card worth P100, and i assume that since smart bro has a simcard, if you just insert it in a cellfone, you can just load it like regular loading of smart prepaid card. but the voice prompt keep telling me wrong pin. can you help me please? thanks!
