Call it mobile wifi, Mifi, or pocket wifi, it’s all the same thing that enables us to be connected to the Net on the go. And through the years that it has evolved, Smart Bro pushes the envelope further in collaboration with Evoluzn to bring about the new Smart Bro LTE Wifi!
Evoluzn & Smart Bro
Evoluzn is an international broadband device design company. They have spent over two decades of research and development in telecommunications including broadband design and market research bringing about the new Smart Bro LTE Pocket Wi-Fi.
Chief Executive Officer Surya Jonnalagadda shares that the brand-new pocket Wi-Fi device promises to give its users ultra-fast Internet connection with speeds that go up to 42Mbps.
Unboxing Smart Bro LTE Pocket Wi-Fi
I unboxed the Smart Bro LTE Pocket Wi-Fi a few weeks ago in a local college in Quezon City where I teach IT subjects. I was successful in connecting to Smart’s LTE network and testing some of it’s functions including connect multiple Wi-Fi devices (upto 10 smartphones, tablets) at the same time.
It is also compatible with multiple Internet browsers, and can connect to Smart’s nationwide LTE, 4G, and 3G coverage.
To review and test its signal in other locations in brought it around Metro Manila including the business districts of Fort Bonifacio in Taguig City and Makati City.
As per my personal consumption needs as a blogger, the almost 6 Mbps download speed result at Fort Bonifacio is already a very welcome improvement from my previous broadband provider which only reaches 1+ Mbps. The upload speed of almost 7 Mbps is also above average even for my video uploads.
But that’s just my personal take. With the published potential of 42Mbps for an LTE connection, I should say that the state of Philippine Internet still has a lot of room for improvement. I hope that comes in the near future.
