Maybe one of the reasons why you’re not keen into getting the HSPA+ Smart Bro Rocket dongle is that you want to share that high-speed internet with others or maybe use it on your iPad or other PCs at home. Now Smart has an answer to that in the form of the Rocket WiFi Plus which allows you to share your HSPA+ internet connection to 5 gadgets simultaneously.
This portable pocket router is capable of reaching speeds of up to 20Mbps using Smart’s 4G HSPA+ (Evolved High Speed Packet Access) network. It is available exclusively in prepaid and uses the same P200/180 MB pricing scheme as that of the Rocket Plug It.
No rush in getting one as the units won’t be available until November. Smart is accepting pre-orders for this Rocket WiFi Plus though if you think it would sell like hotcakes at a price of Php6,495.
Right now there are 875 HSPA+ sites nationwide but I still yet to encounter consistent speeds of at least 10Mbps. The most I saw from the Rocket was 4Mbps, that’s 3G speed! If you can stomach the P200/180 MB pricing for the Smart’s Rocket, I won’t hold you back from getting one of these.
