Smart Bro Plug-It Goes Prepaid
Thursday, March 27, 2008

ADVERTISEMENTS


Captain's Log Stardate -315236.88

BROPrepaid

PLDT has been really aggressive to penetrate the masa market. They recently introduced a prepaid GSM-based landline service that will definitely kill bayanWIRELESS Landline. PLDT Landline Plus Prepaid enables anyone who have a GSM mobile phone to have an instant landline for as low as P300 per month. Now, anyone can get a Smart Bro account without submitting any papers or requirements. Smart is offering their Smart Bro Plug-it as a prepaid kit for Php4500.

Smart BRO PREPAID, the newest Smart Bro broadband internet service that allows you to surf the net anywhere there’s a PC! Absolutely no Monthly Service Fee since it’s prepaid!

The Smart BRO USB modem is a small, palm-sized device that you can carry with you wherever you go. And anytime you need to surf, just plug it into the USB port of your PC, and you’ll get connected in a flash. Total initial payment is P4500 with FREE P30 broadband load. Broadband Internet use is P10 for every 30 minutes.

Actually, you can enjoy the same rates of P10/30mins if you have a SMART Prepaid SIM and a 3G enabled phone. Php4,500 for the USB Modem is also expensive compared to getting yourself a 2nd hand 3G mobile phone. A second hand Nokia 6630 can be bought for as low as P3,500. You get 3G modem capabilities plus call and text functions. Of course, a portable music player and a 1.3 Megapixel camera.

The only advantage with this prepaid kit is that the USB modem gets its power from the USB port of your computer. You don't have to charge it unlike your mobile phone which may last for only 2-4 hours of continuous modem use. Of course if you're mobile, it doesnt really matter since your laptop's battery would probably last 4 hours.

I am currently looking for a cheap version of this 3G/HSDPA USB modem at TipidPC. So if you have a modem like this, send me an email :)

I have been using my Nokia 6630 on my SMART Prepaid SIM whenever I go out with my laptop. My lola's one of the first Smart 3G + Laptop + Skype user when we used my 3G phone to make a call via Skype 2 years ago in the middle of Himlayang Pilipino.

Anyone from China willing to export these 3G modems here? :~)

@ade - just buy a Nokia 6630 or LG KU 250. It's cheaper plus you get a digital camera and an extra mobile phone :D
