Is it Really 4X More Faster?

When I heard the Smart Bro pocket WiFi was on sale at P2,995 I instantly grabbed it.  I got the prepaid one which fits my budget and my pattern of WiFi usage.  Basically, I need connection with me all the time – like ALL THE TIME!  It’s for work, for my blog and for getting tasks done.

I actually live somewhere in Manila – that is not near the busy districts.  With that said, in my location there is no LTE coverage (yet, as Smart LTE coverage is expanding).  It’s kind of a place where I wouldn’t usually get the best 3G signal.

But I’ve been using this Pocket WiFi for 2 months now, and it has been consistently giving me at least 1mbps internet.  Not bad from my location really!

Eek! I think I got excited and took a screenshot before the upload finishes to get tested.

Anyway, this 2mbps I get usually in the wee hours… for a normal time like mornings, afternoons and evenings I get at around 1mbps.

So is it really 4x faster?  I cannot say accurately, but I have compared the 3 different broadband accounts in my place and Smart’s Pocket WiFi is the most satisfactory.  I’m not sure in other locations, so you go check yourself if you need to.
