**Unified Smart WiFi/Bro Thread (Feedback, Ideas, Comments, and Helping each other out)

    I agree. at sana talaga may mag report or gumawa nang petition sa NTC para ireklamo ang smart , pagnanakaw na ginagawa ng smart. im paying 999php for a speed of 0.75mpbs 3G pocket wifi. naka-ilang report na ako sa center nila but no one provide me a solution. 2years ang lock-in period nila sa postpaid and 6 months ko lang nagamit ng maayos yung pocket wifi nila...hayyyzz 999php for 0.75mbps nakakahinayang buti na lang matatapos na contract ko sa smart...advice ko lang sa mga kukuha ng pocket wifi wag niyo na subukan, sayang lang 999php, niyo. Mobile browsing niyo lang siya magagamit.
  • ^ I tried the "register FREE to 9999" method posted here and it actually improved my speeds. No more throttling to .70++ Mbps. Direct downloads are still kinda slow (seems throttled as well to about 100 kb/s) but I can stream videos well enough meaning at 480p, any higher and it might be slow. The guy who posted this method advised as well to do it every 24 hours but I have not and the speeds are still ok.

    NOTE: I'm doing all this on my Iphone and office laptop in Makati CBD which is "Globe territory". Your mileage may vary.

    only goes to show that the free internet that smart introduced is the real reason why speeds have been throttled.
  • Mukhang regardless kung anong SIM ang gamit, Smart LTE Prepaid, Smart Bro LTE Prepaid, o kahit postpaid, hindi na makagamit nang maayos.

    Mga prefix ng gamit ko, 0998, 0929, 0949 at lahat ay registered sa LTE at LTE-capable yung gamit kong device. Pero after a few hours of usage, bigla na lang mawawala yung signal, at kapag bumalik, 3G na lang tapos hindi mo na makikita yung total bandwidth o kung ilang megabytes o gigabytes yung combined upload and download mo.

    And worse, kahit full bar yung 3G signal sa 4G device, hindi ka na maka-connect sa internet at kailangan mo na gumamit ng ibang SIM card.

    Pareho lang kahit LTE 50, LTE 299, o LTE 995 ang gamit mo. Di tulad sa Globe, walang paraan o keyword para itigil yung LTE para mag-register ng bago.

    Inisip ko pa ngang baka MAC address dependent yung ban pero mukhang hindi naman. Plano ko pa nga sana bumili ng bagong pocket wi-fi pero 5K php pa rin ang halaga. Iba kasi yung gamit ko sa nakita ko sa advertisement ng Smart at kukuha sana ako para masubukan kung may pagbabago pero mukhang masasayang lang pera.
