Smart Bro may just have gained 5,000 to 10,000 new subscribers today and possible 5,000 to 10,000 future residents of The Smart Bro Chronicles.
Smart promised to give away 10,000 pieces of Smart Bro Plug-It USB modems to current high school and college students from UAAP and NCAA colleges on the B-Free Day event at the Mega Tent yesterday. The first one to get a free USB modem was a fellow Thomasian.
The free modems are limited edition Plug-Its with designs depending on the member school of UAAP and NCAA. Unlike Globe Tattoo's sticker skins, the designs on these Smart Bro 3G dongles are printed on the case itself.
Alumni of member schools are also entitled to a special P100 discount. No need to provide identifications so I assume everyone at the venue can get one for P895.
Aside from the free Smart Bro modems, students were also given free foods, refreshments, wifi, games, rides, and concert. Big computer discounts were also offered to people who will subscribe to Smart Bro's postpaid services. You can get a Celeron desktop for as low as P3,000.
I wonder if Smart was able to throw away 10,000 plug-its since the 4PM registration deadline was extended until 7PM.
Lalaine's cousin got the UST Growling Tiger modem. Mark and I were offering her P500 plus a Globe Tattoo in exchange for this thing of beauty. She refused :(
If you're wondering, the limited edition modems are ZTE MF627 and are easy to unlock :P
