I visited the Smart Switch Madness in Edsa Shangri-la today. I went there to intentionally sign up for the Smart Bro Unli Plan 999. I was there to subscribe for the SIM-only subscription which has a 6-months lock in period. But since, Switch Madness event offers FREE Pocket WiFi, I took advantage of it.
For the switchers and new subscribers, the Huawei Pocket Wi-fi was replaced now by Alcatel OneTouch Y580. The speed is up to 7.1Mbps, however the specs published by Alcatel in their website is up to 21Mbps.
Alcatel OneTouch Y580 Specs:
Bands:UMTS 850/1900/2100 MHz, GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz, WiFi:2.4GHz
Network: HSPA+, HSUPA, HSDPA, UMTS, EDGE, GPRS
Supports USB 2.0
Storage: Up to 32G via MicroSD
- HSDPA: 3GPP R7, up to 21Mpbs DL, HSUPA: 3GPP R6, up to 5.76Mpbs UL

- EDGE: up to 237Kbps Download; up to 118Kbps Upload
- GPRS: up to 85.6Kbps Download; up to 42.8Kbps Upload
Now back to the Switch Madness of Smart, if you will sign up for the Broadband with free Pocket Wi-fi, the stocks are not yet available. I just signed up, and Smart reps promised they will call me later or tomorrow to pick up the item. The reps told me their stocks are arriving later today.
I have spotted few customers signing up for the Plan 1500 iPhone 4s, and a lot lined up for both Prepaid and Postpaid switchers!
Here are few photos from the first day of the event.
Oh, do not forget that Smart is giving away free iPhone 4S under Plan 1500 only!
