Are you ready for Globe’s WiMAX?

Globe just launched their newest broadband internet offering powered by WiMAX technology for those areas that are not reached by 3G or DSL. This is the first in our country.

Now before you go on thinking that Globe has poor coverage for its 3G so why should I bother with this new WiMAX thing, you should know the basics of WiMAX.

Yes, 3G reception for Globe is spotty due to low number of cell sites. With WiMAX though, it can cover way much greater distance than 3G so you don’t need to put up a lot of sites. It uses a different infrastructure so you won’t be competing with other services. Just like WiFi and 3G, your device should be WiMAX ready or you need a modem or a dongle built specifically for WiMAX signals.

As of this month, Globe’s WiMAX is only offered to select locations, particularly in rural areas:

  • Select areas in NCR
  • Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Quezon
  • Cebu Province
  • Bacolod, Dumaguete
  • Silay City
  • Cagayan de Oro City

Globe’s planning to extend their coverage though before the year ends.

Now for the WiMAX plans, Globe boasts that its entry plan is 33% faster and 25% more affordable than other broadband providers.

  • Php795 for 512 kbps
  • PHP995 for 512 kbps PLUS landline
  • PHP1295 for 1 Mbps PLUS landline

They also offer a 30-day money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied which should’ve been the case with their other broadband plans.

If broadband internet in your area is hard to come by then it wouldn’t hurt to give Globe’s WiMAX a try.

    GET GLOBE WIMAX IF YOU WANT YOUR CONNECTION TO DROP EVERY 10 MINUTES AND IF YOU WANT DNS ISSUES WITH WEBSITES YOU REALLY NEED. Their service is really frustrating. I warned you, ok?

  7. ay naku…. 1 mbps nga apply ko…. 999… pag pumutok na liwanag ng kalangitan sure na babagal…. laging na didisconnect pa…. partida 100% ung signal strength.. isang pc…. application lng ng facebook….pak pak…. ganun na….

    • cejah /

      tama ka dyan hirap mag connect kahit facebook hi naku ewan ko ba sa mga ISP n yan wla ng ginwang mabuti sa mga user magaling lang sila sa bayaran….

  8. Allie /

    late dumating ang bill….
    at dahil dun magpapatong yung bill nyo for 2 months…

    kainis….

  9. globe wi-max 999 a month walang signal upper macasandig mandomol c.d.o. , 1 week na wala paring signal, hoy; gising globe bu-w-sit,

  10. hi there! sa mga globe customers na niloko ng agent para makabitan lang ng wimax nila, i think you are all need to reply on me. Gaya ng ginawa sa akin ng agent ng globe, na yung P500 advance na ibabayad ko ay ibabawas sa first bill ko. then yun pala connection fee, after that sabi nila gagana kahit saan lugar o area ko dalhin yung wimax ay gagana…yung pala kung saan area ka lang dun lang dapat…reply on this if u have a problem from globe, like what they did to me. ipapasok ito sa media at senado, dahi isa itong pangloloko…

    • ganon ng. i usualy travel around quezon province dahil sa nature ng work ko. sabi nila i can carry it around quezon. yon pala i can only carry it pero wala namang signal. pabigat lang tuloy sa mga gamit kong dala.

    Selective browsing, slow-ass connection, no internet for nearly two weeks, never ending cancellation and rescheduling of on site visit requests… SCREW YOU Globe! I made the best decision of my life to cancel my subscription with you and go back to your rival ISP. Haha! Yeah they suck too, but not as bad as you!

  12. Joennel /

    kaka apply ko lang kahapon … baka sa linggo dimating ung intaller,,, nag advance ako ng P995 …. mabagal ba talaga 2???????????? e anu gagamitin ko,,???? lock ako 12months…

    • nakapag apply ka na pala so wala ka ng choice but if pwede pa icancel walang problema..depende nmn kasi sa location yan joennel…ako dating smartbro pero nung nagkaproblema na kami sa signal dahil sa nakaraang bagyo lumipat na kami sa globe wimax with 1 mbps P995/month…1 month na nmin nagagamit wala nmn problema…di ko nmn sinasabi na ok ang globe wimax kasi 1 month pa lang kami nkakagamit…pero tingin ko lang depende talaga sa location mo..kaya nga ang advice ko sa kanila icheck na muna nila neighbor nila na may globe or smart connection, kung alin sa kanila ang may magandang service, before sila magdecide kung anong network gagamitin nila..

  13. We have just switched our internet(ISP) from smartbro to globe tattoo wimax it looks fine, we are using one month now with no hassle. I think globe wi-max signal is better than smart bro in our location (carmona cavite). My advice to all is to check first your neighbor connection for both smart and globe which one is better signal before you decide.

    Good luck!!!

    Thanks

    nag apply din ako ng globe wimax (pasong camachile, gen trias location) dahil sa sobrang bagal na ng smartbro sa area namin. ala pa kasing DSL service dito kay no choice ako kundi subukan ang globe. yung smartbro 2mbps nga advertize at last 3 years ok nga speed pero now madaling araw lang ok at makukuha mo pang download speed ay 100kbps lang. At sa peak hours grabe as is 20 lang average. Will try globe and reply na lang ako feedback later.
