Rate Chart of Mobile 3G Internet Providers

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: May 13, 2009

So we could better see which 3g internet provider is giving us the best deals, I made this simple chart to compare postpaid and prepaid mobile 3G plans of Globe, Smart and Sun Cellular. The chart is short and simple -- compare rates for prepaid mobile 3G surfing, postpaid plans as well as ongoing bundled promos. Both Smart and Sun Cellular are running bucket offers -- Smart has the Php50 per 5 hours and Php100 per 12 hours promo, while Sun Cellular is offering their SWB at Php100 per 6 hours and Php300 per 24 hours. Globe doesn't have this…

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: May 30, 2008

Bumped into someone from Globe this evening and she quickly tipped me about their new Globe Visibility plans - Plan 799, Plan 999, and Plan 1499.

Relevance: 84%      Posted on: October 28, 2009

Looks like Globe Telecom has finally brought back unlimited 3G internet with a the rebranded service called Globe Super Surf. Nothing new or earth-shaking actually, just that they now also offer prepaid daily unlimited surfing for Php20 per day. For postpaid subscribers, it's Php2,000 per month on top of your regular MSF.

Globe 3G: 5 Pesos for 15 minutes!

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: April 5, 2008

This just in. Got a message from someone inside Globe telling me Globe GPRS/3G/HSDPA (myGlobe GPRS and myGlobe Internet on your mobile phone settings) has moved to time-based charging. That's 5 pesos for every 15 minutes! It's about time. To activate this new charging scheme, just send text "time" to 1111. You will then get a confirmation that you'll be charged Php5.00 for every 15 minutes (activation within 1 hour), otherwise you'll still be billed on a per KB basis. Been telling them to shift to this price scheduling for the longest time. Weird thing is, subscribers can actually go…

Essentials of a typical Advertising Rate Card

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: August 9, 2007

I started getting direct advertisers on this blog about two years ago. The other blogs just followed suit. It was an exciting prospect because the growing interest in blog advertising was something that popped out of nowhere. One of the best ways to prepare yourself for direct advertisers is to come up with an ad rate card. About 13 months ago, I shared a sample of my rate card here. You can still download a copy of the file here. It's an old one and I've actually updated that one into a new PDF file (which needs another round of…

Smart, Globe still fail NTC test for “dropped calls”

Relevance: 78%      Posted on: November 14, 2012

Two of the country's top telcos, Smart Communications, Inc. and Globe Telecom, Inc., both failed NTC's test for "dropped call" rate in the third quarter. NTC's standards for dropped call rates is at 2%. Unfortunately, both telcos failed to meet that standard. "Smart got a 2.15%, while Globe fared worse with 2.75%," says NTC Director Edgardo Cabarios. This means that there are more than two calls dropped or involuntary terminated for every 100 calls. Smart and Globe have been informed of the results and are asked to submit a written explanation why they failed to meet the 2% dropped call…

So I got an email from one of the engineers (Technical Services Division) of Smart wanting to clarify/correct my previous entry regarding the Php1 per minute rates Smart is offering.

The headphones were said to be equipped with accelerometers that work with the user's iOS device so they could control it by a simple gesture of their head. According to the document, there will be an in-ear model as well as an on-ear variant. This patent was filed way back sometime in 2007-2008, which means the Cupertino-based company has been planning on venturing to enter the…
