Smart introduces WiFi Plug-It device (Huawei E355)
Smart has introduced yet another 3G+WiFi device they called the Smart Bro WiFi Plug-It. The device looks like your regular 3G dongle but also acts as a WiFi access point so you can share your internet connection with other devices.
The prepaid kit comes preloaded with 240 hours of free internet and 400 free SMS to Smart & Sun networks (valid for 10 days). Smart promises up to 7.2Mbps in its network using this device.
After that, you can load it up and use it under the regular prepaid charging of Php10 per 30 minutes.
The device looks like a Huawei E355 which supports sharing internet for up to 5 WiFi devices. It also supports HSPA+ networks of up to 21.6Mbps as well as WiFi 802.11 b/g/n.
The WiFi Plug-It is only offered via a Prepaid Kit which costs Php3,495. It’s a bit steep considering you can get the regular 3G dongles for under Php1,000 and use your laptop to share internet over WiFi.
