Globe Telecom takes over BayanTel

Relevance: 95%      Posted on: December 28, 2012

Without much funfare, Globe Telecom is effectively the new owners of BayanTel. Or something to that effect. The negotiations between Globe and BayanTel have been going for some time now with the former offering to pay the latter's debts. Globe and BayanTel has been in talks about this for a long time and the two has even gone into joint-use in recent months. BayanTel has been in debt for a long time and is under rehabilitation. The biggest asset that telcos are looking to get from them is the additional spectrum. In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, the…

BayanTel offers 3Mbps at Php899, 15GB cap

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: April 13, 2011

So there you go -- another ISP offering capped plans on a faster pipe. I'm sure a lot of you have seen those big billboard ads while plying the roads of Metro Manila. BayanTel has a special package of 3Mbps BayanDSL for only Php899 a month. That same monthly fee is equivalent to their 768Kbps plan with unlimited bandwidth. So if you think you don't consume that much amount of data a month, you'd be better off with the capped plan. But then again, if you think 15GB isn't enough, the 768Kbps plan is still available for the same Php899…

BayanTel sets broadband cap at 100GB?

Relevance: 57%      Posted on: January 2, 2011

At the Bayan Telecommunications official forum, the indicated monthly internet cap for subscribers is said to be at 100GB per month though this has not been completely confirmed since the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) has not specified it. The forum posting (post was removed by BayanTel; Google Cache here) was allegedly lifted from the official documents (but we could not find the original one): 1. What is the monthly bandwidth limit per subscriber? The limit per subscriber ay any given month must not exceed 100 gigabytes. 2.Why is there a bandwidth limit? bayanDSL must ensure the quality of service of…

ZTE MF60 HSPA+ Pocket WiFi Review

Relevance: 53%      Posted on: September 8, 2011

We featured this HSPA+ capable mobile hotspot from ZTE a few weeks ago and we've finally gotten a review unit to test. Like many other pocket WiFi (MiFi) devices before it, the ZTE MF60 is one pretty kick-ass unit. If only it were more affordable. The ZTE MF60 looks like your typical portable mobile hotspot device -- small, lightweight, bar soap shaped 3G/WiFi router. Unlike the previous ones we've seen and reviewed here, this one actually supports HSPA+ networks -- just like the Tonino Lamborghini Tattoo stick and the Smart Bro Rocket. That means you can theoretically reach as fast…

PLDT WiFi Zone: Can paid public WiFi survive?

Relevance: 51%      Posted on: March 9, 2012

Yesterday, PLDT and Intel held a joint event to present a partnership for the PLDT WiFi Zone and the Intel-powered ultrabooks. They didn't really share anything concrete plans bewteen the two brands but it was an opporunity for me to ask a lingering question -- can paid public WiFi still survive in this time of cheap mobile internet and free public WiFi? The PLDT WiFi Zone was first introduced sometime in December with regional pocket launches in Cebu (during Sinulog) and in Baguio (during Penagbenga). PLDT WiFi Zone speed test. Prior to this, Smart Bro also offered a similar WiFi…

Nokia E66, E71 + AA = Free WiFi

Relevance: 50%      Posted on: October 14, 2008

I wonder why Nokia Philippines isn't offering this to other WiFi-capable NSeries phones but they keep on giving away free wifi from Airborne Access to owners of Nokia E66 and E71. Owners of Nokia ESeries phones will be happy to learn they could hook up their phones in any Airborne Access hotspots nationwide: Starting October 6, 2008 until December 31, 2008, consumers who purchase the Nokia E71 and Nokia E66 devices will be given 2 months free instant Internet access at all Airborne Access Wi-Fi hotspots. Not only that, every week, the user with the most number of logins into…

Hands-on: ZTE MF90 LTE Pocket WiFi

Relevance: 48%      Posted on: March 17, 2014

The successor to the ZTE MF80 pocket WiFi from 2 years ago is the new ZTE MF90 which is now an LTE modem as well. This new model was officially released last month by MSI-ECS. The previous model supported HSPA+ networks with speeds of up to 42Mbps (prior to that we had the ZTE MF60). During that time, telcos have already deployed their HSPA+ network and we were getting a good 10-12Mbps using the pocket WiFi. Having used the MF60 and the MF80, it would seem that ZTE does not have some sort of design signature in every pocket WiFi…

Sierra Wireless 4G/LTE pocket WiFi review

Relevance: 47%      Posted on: July 31, 2013

While scouring the web for good gadget deals, my friend came across this rather inexpensive 4G/LTE pocket Wi-Fi from Sierra Wireless/NetGear that’s being sold for only Php5,000 at Sulit. But apparently, there’s more to it than meets the eye. This pocket WiFi is known by many names, as is the case for most devices being sold in the US, especially if it’s adopted by one of the major telcos there. Its official model name is AirCard® 754S Mobile Hotspot. It was initially a part of Sierra Wireless’ AirCard portfolio, but is now being retailed by NetGear after it acquired the…
