SMART Bro Rocket WiFi Plus
SMART has been aggressively rolling out their HSPA+ network coverage in the last few months. In fact they are already covering certain parts of San Juan City including my condo. I’ve tested the SMART Bro Rocket Plug-it and it rarely goes below 3mbps and tops at 8mbps. Building on top of the success of the SMART Bro Rocket Plug-it, there’s the new SMART Bro Rocket WiFi Plus.
The SMART Bro Rocket WiFi Plus is basically a portable pocket router which can connect to the HSPA+ network of SMART. It has the capability to go up to 20Mbps. Up to 5 gadgets can connect to the device.
How much? The actual pocket router sells for Php6,495. For the internet you’ll have to fork over Php200 for every 180MB. A bit pricey especially if you’re the type that downloads movies and television series at home using torrents.
If you want one you can pre-order at this site. It comes with free 180MB preload.
