Last week Smart launched their HSPA+ prepaid plug-it promising speeds of up to 12mbps: the Smart Bro Rocket Plug-it. This product will go head on with Globe’s Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini. What’s interesting is that they revealed it without too much fanfare. In fact the Rocket was only an add-on in the omnibus print ad of Smart which featured Kevin Durant. This makes sense though since the HSPA+ coverage of Smart is limited to certain parts of Metro Manila (which is the same case for Globe).
We were able to score a unit and we will be testing in the next few days. Expect some head-to-head comparisons with the Globe Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini.
