Smart BRO 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.

When I first saw the commercial about this, my primary reaction was, that was better than the first offer, sounds exciting. But hey, with PhP4,500 initial payment?! And preloaded only with PhP30.00?! Heck, I’d rather still stick to using 3G mobile phone, no initial payments, just the PhP10.00 per 30min. rate. And yes, no sim card nor modem pad to carry around, only a mobile phone on your hand with 3G capabilities just like an ordinary day. Same speed (Nokia 6110 Navigator has 3.6Mbps 3G speed), same rate (on SMART sim), using same 3G signal, no initial payments. And oh, by the way, Smart has the same rate for GPRS (no more kb/s charging).

People, don’t be fooled.

I’ve included mine in this blog.
