We were in the province for almost the whole of October because of some unavoidable circumstances. And when outside the house, you can only rely on mobile internet, which was, luckily provided well by Smart’s LTE-A Pocket WiFi. I was able to work at the quarantine facility for weeks and at home afterward. The LTE-A prepaid pocket WiFi is a very convenient device to bring and share with family and friends.
This little device with 3,000mAH battery capacity has a USB Type-C port and an LTE Category 6 device. Fact is, this is the only pocket WiFi offered by Smart that has USB Type-C. Making it very convenient for me since my smartphone has the same port. So, it required me just one cable and charger in one trip.
We were five (5) in that quarantine facility and we shared the internet connection without any hassle at all. I think we were lucky enough that the signal is always a full bar in that area.
You know, devices like this are very, very similar to your smartphone. It requires a strong LTE signal in order to deliver fast mobile internet.
We were getting an average of 10Mbps and it would even peak at 12Mbps on a given day.
