I can’t find a pre-order page as of this writing though, so I suggest you drop a call to SMART in any case you’re interested of getting one. But of course before you grab a phone, let me tell you first what you need to know about this latest broadband product.
What is Smart Bro Rocket Wi-Fi Plus?
The Smart Bro Rocket WiFi Plus is a portable pocket router which you can use to turn any place into a Wi-Fi hotspot, providing internet access of up to 5 WiFi-enabled devices. This is basically an upgrade to last year’s Smart Bro Pocket WiFi, capable of reaching internet speeds of up to 20Mbps through SMART’s “4G” or HSPA+ network. Though it’s rated with a blazingly fast speed, this seems not to work as expected unless you’re covered in over 600 SMART HSPA+ sites (see the partial list here) across the country.
“If you thought the 12Mbps Rocket Plug-It was already ahead of its time, the Rocket WiFi Plus will blast you off even farther into the future,” said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services Head Gio Bacareza. “The Rocket WiFi Plus can reach a ‘conservative’ 20Mbps on our 42Mbps network,” he added.
SMART says the Rocket WiFi Plus is available exclusively in prepaid and uses the same P200/180 MB pricing scheme as that of the Rocket Plug It. And subscribers can top via accredited Eload stations or through the use of Smart Bro Prepaid Cards. Smart Money account holders may also reload the Rocket WiFi Plus using their mobile phone.
