Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi
M.Anila, Philippines – As we try to get into the new normal by shifting many aspects of our online lives, fast and reliable connectivity has become increasingly important to fuel our increasingly digital lifestyle.
This is especially true for employees who are becoming mobile again with the gradual relaxation of quarantine restrictions, students who are adjusting to online learning, and those who are trying to increase their income through online appearances or companies.
Smart makes LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi available to prepaid subscribers.
A new device for our digital life
To make it easier and easier for Filipinos to use the new regular cellular operator Smart Communications, Inc., the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi is becoming more accessible to many by offering prepaid customers a one-time payout of P1.995.
Initially available to postpaid subscribers Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi is suitable as a new device for our digital life as users can work twice as fast as old Smart Pocket WiFi devices to support all online activities on the go.
The Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi offers significantly faster speeds using carrier aggregation, the latest technology in mobile communications used to achieve target data rates for data-intensive services for mobile apps. Carrier aggregation combines more than one component carrier within and between bands, similar to two or more highways, in order to handle more traffic and use the available capacity more efficiently. Thus, the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi can deliver more data rates per user, reduce latency and increase the capacity of the participants.
Perfect for mobile use
In addition, Carrier Aggregation makes the device perfect for mobile use, as the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi efficiently uses the available component carriers and the bandwidth at your location.
Therefore, users can rely on the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi for significantly faster mobile connectivity when they are from home, in the office or on the go. It’s also a must have for those taking online courses, growing their small business online, or just wanting quick and constant access to their favorite productivity, entertainment, and social media apps on the go.
An easy way to shop
Subscribers can make optimal use of the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi with GIGA Pro, a larger and better data package that offers a generous combination of 3 GB per day for every GIGA offer – whether video, study, work, games or stories – plus open access data allocation for all online activities.
GIGA Pro is available exclusively in the Smart App and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and the App Store. The Smart App offers subscribers an easier way to charge the device with just a few taps. This eliminates the old effort of establishing a connection to a complicated online dashboard or transferring the Pocket WiFi SIM to a handset.
In order to be able to use GIGA Pro, subscribers must first connect their smartphone to their Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi and then log into the Smart App in order to automatically recognize their account number. After that, subscribers just have to tap on the GIGA Pro offer they want.

With the Smart Bro LTE-Advanced Pocket WiFi, users can not only experience faster speeds and larger amounts of data on the go, but also connect up to 10 WiFi-enabled devices – twice as many as normal Pocket WiFi devices on the market.
This makes it perfect for multitasking and sharing, eliminating the need for users to use their phone as a WiFi hotspot, consuming their phone’s data allocation and draining the battery faster.
