Globe’s 15GB Bandwidth Cap in Fine Print

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: September 20, 2009

Last May, Globe Telecom sent us a formal statement regarding the peer-2-peer bandwidth capping on their network -- claiming they're not doing any bandwidth capping. But that doesn't mean they don't have such provisions in the subscriber contracts, a copy of which is posted below: A friend who just switch from PLDT myDSL to Globe Broadband showed me a copy of his Service Order Agreement. Item #5 of the agreement specifies bandwidth allowances for various service plans, including a 20% cap of maximum subscribed speed (i.e, if you are on Plan 1Mbps, P2P download is capped at 200Kbps). Likewise, there's…

Globe to enforce 1GB per day Bandwidth Cap

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: April 6, 2011

So it looks like all the draft memo with the NTC actually forced telcos to lift their iron fist -- Globe Telecom has just sent out a press release that they will be strictly enforcing a daily data cap on all broadband subscribers, starting with 1GB/day. It was just this January when we first heard of NTC doing consultations and public hearing regarding the broadband cap. Telcos reasoned out why they have no other choice but to put some sort of capping for their residential subscribers (see: 5 Reasons ISPs Implement Bandwidth Cap). And we thought that was the end…

Bandwidth Caps out; Is Throttling next?

Relevance: 77%      Posted on: January 18, 2011

After the recent public hearing by the NTC, they've announced that provisions for bandwidth caps have been removed from memo. But that's just the NTC and it's still a draft so ISPs can still continue with their bandwidth capping provisions as stated in their service contracts and AUP. If bandwidth capping will eventually be prohibited by NTC, service providers will most likely resort to other methods and the next best thing would be "bandwidth throttling". Bandwidth throttling is a technique employed in communications networks to manage network traffic and minimize congestion. Internet service provider can use bandwidth throttling to reduce…

What is Globe’s Magic IP and why is it free?

Relevance: 77%      Posted on: August 9, 2011

Been getting a lot of comments from readers regarding this certain Magic IP from Globe which allegedly allows users to be able to still surf the net even with zero load. So I sent out a message to @talk2globe if they knew anything about it. All I got was this answer -- @talk2globe: Nope! We don't have or offer such service. . However a number of Tweeps replied back to me saying it is possible. I did a little bit of digging, found a number of instructions in the forums and tried it. After a couple of tries, I was…

Wi-Tribe offers Php200 per GB bandwidth

Relevance: 70%      Posted on: May 10, 2010

New telco player, Wi-Tribe, has finally addressed their bandwidth strategy by offering some sort of pay-per-use. Aside from doubling up the bandwidth cap to 6GB, you're able to top up your bandwidth usage by Php200 per GB. The current 4G packages include: 1Mbps @ Php998 and 2Mbps @ Php1,998 per month. I know that the Philippines has one of the most expensive rates in terms of bandwidth but Php200 per GB seems very high. If that's the case, then they should just bump up the speeds to 5Mbps or even 10Mbps since it's consumption-based (downloading 1GB of data in 10…

So now that Globe's LTE service has been finally revealed, we look at the pricing plans and compared it to Smart LTE. The chart below should give you a bigger picture on what each telco is offering.

I have been getting inquiries from people asking about the peer to peer issues with their Globe DSL. Today, Globe Telecom has issued a formal explanation regarding the issue. See details below: These are information that are being disseminated to all CSRs to be relayed to customers when they inquire about the alleged bandwidth capping. What is Peer-to-Peer (P2P) P2P is a file sharing mechanism that allows files to be swapped directly between users' computers instead of having the file first stored on a server between them. An example of a P2P application is BitTorrent. What is our official message…

Bandwidth caps explained, NTC endorsed

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: December 29, 2010

A recent draft memorandum by the NTC indicates some sort of service level agreement where ISPs are required to provide a minimum guaranteed speed on subscriptions as well as allow for daily bandwidth capping on subscribers. The circular requires ISPs to deliver a minimum average of 80% of the subscribed plan for regular broadband/dial-up lines and 99% for leased lines. The NTC defines this accordingly: ... service reliability is measured over a period of one month and is derived by dividing the number of hours used in a day into the difference between hours used in a day and hours…

5 Reasons ISPs Implement Bandwidth Caps

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: January 5, 2011

I've been asking engineers around for reasons why ISPs around the world have been implementing bandwidth caps and got several possible scenarios to consider. Here are the top 5 most probable reasons behind the issue of bandwidth caps. Some or all of these reasons might also be true for our local telcos/ISPs as well. 1) Subscription Mis-match. Residential subscribers using their connection beyond "residential use" (like for powering their internet cafe businesses). If you see one of those small mom's and pop's internet cafe that's placed as an extension to a house, it's highly probable they've used their residential line…

Speedtest: Location-based bandwidth meter

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: March 12, 2007

This is not just any other bandwidth meter around. It tracks your location, including your ISP and upstream provider. You choose which server to connect when measuring your bandwidth. Here's my results for my PLDT myDSL 1995. It's supposed to be rated at 1.2Mbps. The connecting server I used was Bayantel. The system also saves a whole bunch of data from other users so you can dig them up, get the average for your area and even compare the performances of other ISPs. This one screen shot report I got the the Metro Manila area: Interestingly, Destiny is topping the…
