Relevance: 100%      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.

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: October 8, 2008

The latest HSDPA 3G modem from Smart Bro and Globe Visibility were manufactured by ZTE in China. Both are practically plug-and-play devices.

The Smart Bro model is MF622 and the Globe Visibility is MF626, making the latter the much newer model. Incidentally, the newer device drivers from ZTE would not work with the older model used by Smart Bro. In fact, Globe Visibility takes over the Smart…

The difference of Php0.20 will be passed on to consumers effectively making regular SMS rates cheaper at Php0.80.
