SmartBro Share It was first launched last March 2009. The device in the bundle is basically a wifi router and 3G/HSDPA modem in one. It is a 3G WiFi router that can share internet up to 5 devices.
The Share It subscription costs Php999 a month for only 90 hours of free 3G internet. It can reach speeds of up to 2 mbps in key cities in the country. Usage in excess of 90 hours are charged P0.35 for every minute.
Initial cash-out for the 12-month subscription is Php3,499, which includes the one-time payment of Php2,500 for the device, plus the first month’s fee of Php999. Then monthly subscription fee is Php999.
But now Smart has upgraded that to unlimited with a 24-month lock-in contract, plus a Php2,500 one-time fee for the 3G router. Monthly subscription is still Php999.
Smart has made this good offer difficult to resist since it is possible to get that SIM card and put it in your phone for unlimited 3G. You can also opt to use it with a 3G USB dongle and take it anywhere will hooked on your laptop or netbook. This is definetly a cheaper alternative to the Php1,500 unlimited 3G subscription being offered by Smart.
