Smart Bro canopy is now “myBro” Wireless Home Broadband

by Ka Edong on July 26, 2012

Gone is Smart Bro canopy and Wimax (home based fixed wireless internet). Now the service is called myBro . This is a result of streamlining of similar products/services between sister companies Smart and PLDT.

The product is also being focused towards Wireless Home Broadband. I see that the SmartBro USB Dongles are still available, and with a whole lot more variants. Smart Bro has “Internet only” SIMs too (without the dongle). Those Internet only SIMs can be used iPad or dongles or personal wireless WiFi modems. I wonder if the product-service streamlining of Smart and PLDT takes Sun into consideration too.

I find it interesting how the rebranding of Smart Bro is happening. They are using the “Bro” imaging to help consumers in making the transition of awareness from SmartBro to my Bro.
