Sun Cellular has come out and announced its entry into the mobile 3G market with its Wireless Broadband offering. An unlimited flat-rate account starts at Php999 a month for speeds up to 400kbps and Php1,999/month for the 1.4Mbps connection.
There’s also a 60-allocation for only Php799 but it’s too close to the Php999 unlimited plan. Sun Cellular Wireless Broadband (mobile broadband) is initially available in areas within Metro Manila.
Hopefully, they’ll be able to roll out the rest of their 3G network within the year.
Since Sun Cellular is the only telco to offer unlimited flat-rate subscription, it has become the de facto cheapest 3G provider in the Philippines. Globe used to offer a flat-rate fee of Php3,000 (there was a promo Php2,000/month too) over its 3G/HSDPA network but reverted back to time-based allocation.
