[07 June 2012] If you love the no-nonsense Smart Plug-It and the practical Smart Pocket WiFi, then say hello to the newest addition to Smart’s family of broadband devices—the Smart WiFi Plug-It.

A plug-It device which broadcasts Smart’s Fourth Generation (4G) High Speed Packet Access Plus (HSPA+) connection via WiFi, the Smart WiFi Plug-It allows users to connect up to 5 devices at speeds of up to 7.2Mbps.

“We’ve taken the simplicity of the Plug-It and combined it with the usefulness of the Pocket WiFi,” said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services Head Lloyd Manaloto. “But what really sets the WiFi Plug-It apart is that you don’t even need to connect it to a PC,” he added.

As a true stand-alone device, the Smart WiFi Plug-It can be powered by any USB power source.

Car owners, for example, can use a regular USB cigarette plug charger to power up the device thus turning their vehicles into a rolling hotspot—perfect for road trips and vacations.

Meanwhile for home use, the WiFi Plug-It can draw power from an ordinary USB phone charger or even a desktop PC.

And lastly for everyday mobile use, laptop users can plug the device into a vacant USB port and connect to Smart’s mobile broadband connection service it via WiFi.

“With the Smart WiFi Plug-It you can pair and share your Internet connection faster than ever before!” said Manaloto. “Surf more and Live More on the only network that provides high speed Internet connectivity even in the farthest regions of the Philippines,” he added.

The Smart WiFi Plug-It is now available via the Smart Online Store (http://store.smart.com.ph) and in all Smart Stores nationwide for P3,495.

Each purchase comes with a Smart Broadband Prepaid SIM which is preloaded with 240 hours of free surfing, 400 free SMS to Smart, Sun, and Talk ‘N Text, and a free car power adapter or home power adapter.
