[12 April 2013] Smart Bro users can now enjoy up to two times faster data connections as wireless leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart)  increases maximum download speeds for its Starter and Power Plug-Its to 7.2Mbps and 12Mbps, respectively.

“We’ve increased the top connection speeds of our Plug Its so that Smart Bro subs can explore more of the Internet on the country’s first and only 100% super-charged network,” said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services Head Lloyd Manaloto.

Available on both prepaid and postpaid, the Smart Bro Starter Plug-It (P995) and the Smart Bro Power Plug-It (P1,245) enable portable devices such as laptops and tablets to surf the web wirelessly on Smart’s super-charged mobile network.

“They can continue using the service at the affordable rate of P10 for every 30 minutes or by availing of any of our special prepaid packages,” he added.

Manaloto refers to the range of Unlisurf and Always On data “sachets” which are available to all Smart Bro users.

“Whichever way you want to enjoy the web, there’s a Smart data package that’s perfect for you,” Manaloto said.

With 54,000kms of fiber optic cables (FOCs) powering its mobile network, Smart, together with parent company PLDT have more than 4 times more fiber power than its competition.

Unlike traditional copper wiring, FOCs use beams of light to communicate from the core network to the cell sites. With no known limit in capacity, it is considered by telcos around the world as a truly future proof technology.

“FOCs enable us to make available the best data services, literally at the speed of light,” said Manaloto. “This gives Smart a clear ‘fiber optic advantage’ which simply cannot be matched by any other network,” he ended.

Smart also offers Smart LTE, the first commercially-available Long Term Evolution 4G service in the Philippines which is present in 46 cities and 69 municipalities nationwide.

Smart LTE is the fastest and most widely available LTE service in the country with diverse device and service offerings for both mobile broadband and mobile handset use.
