Last June, SMART announced their new SMART Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi which is 2x faster than the previous Pocket WiFi models. Since a lot of Filipinos are now working and studying at home who need a reliable mobile data connection, SMART decided to make their new SMART Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi available for prepaid subscribers.
Initially available to postpaid subscribers, the SMART Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi is aptly positioned as a new device to power our digital life as it enables users to enjoy speeds twice that of old SMART Pocket WiFi devices to support all online activities on the go. It uses carrier aggregation, the latest technique in mobile communications that is used to help meet the target data rates for data-intensive mobile apps and services. Carrier Aggregation does this by combining more than one component carrier together within and across bands, much like combining two or more highways to handle more traffic and use available capacity more efficiently. Thus, SMART Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi is able to deliver more data rates per user, reduced latency, and increased capacity for subscribers.
Carrier Aggregation makes the device perfect for mobile use because wherever you go, the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi efficiently uses the available component carriers and bandwidth at your location. Users can rely on the Pocket WiFi to deliver significantly faster mobile connectivity while connecting from home, at the office, or while traveling on the road. It is also a must for those attending online classes, expanding their small business online, or those who simply want fast and constant access to their favorite productivity, entertainment, and social media apps on the go.
Top-up of prepaid load is simple. The SMART App, which is downloadable on Google Play Store and the App Store, provides an easier way for subscribers to load up the device with just a few taps. This eliminates the old way of connecting to a complicated online dashboard, or having to transfer the Pocket WiFi SIM to a handset. We suggest topping up your SMART Bro Pocket WiFi with SMART Giga Pro, a bigger and better data pack that offers a generous combination of 3 GB per day of any GIGA offer. You can find more details about SMART Giga Pro HERE.
Aside from enabling users to experience significantly fasters speeds and bigger data on the go, the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi also lets users connect up to 10 WiFi-ready devices – twice that of regular Pocket WiFi devices in the market. This makes it perfect for multitasking and sharing, so users no longer have to go through the hassle of having to use their phone as a WiFi hotspot, which uses up their phone’s data allocation and drain their battery more quickly.
The SMART Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi is available on prepaid for a one-time cash-out of P1,995 at Smart Stores, the Smart Online Store, accredited retailers nationwide, as well as the Smart Flagship Store on the e-commerce platform Lazada. It is also available on postpaid plans starting at P699 per month, under a 12-month contract. These come with monthly open access data allocation ranging from 6GB to 15GB to cover all online activities. All Smart Bro plans also come with the data rollover feature so that unused data from the previous month shall be carried over to the next month.
