Smart gives out free PlugIt to students
The Smart B Free event held today at the Mega-Tent, Meralco Avenue is an attempt to give-away 10 thousand free SmartBro PlugIt modems to students from UAAP and NCAA universities.
SmartBro USB modems are customized according to university logos (see sample above for Ateneo’s Blue Eagles). These are limited edition USB dongles that are only given away that day. These aren’t just stickers but printed into the plastic dongle itself.
All you needed to do is be at the venue and bring a school ID to get one for free. If you’re not qualified, you can still buy one for just Php895.
There were lots of giveaways, food, drinks, t-shirts and bands. However, the mega-tent seemed a bit empty around noon when I got there. Looks like they weren’t able to reach their target number of 10,000.
There were also promos for SmartBro ShareIt — get a Pentium 4 PC set for only Php4,000 when you subscribe for 24 months.
