Wi-Tribe doubles Plan 1998 speed to 4Mbps

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: January 6, 2012

Wi-Tribe has recently (not sure exactly when) upgraded all the speed limtes of all of their broadband plans, including the top Plan 1998 from 2Mbps to 4Mbps. Not bad considering my PLDT DSL plan is charging the same rate but only pulls down 1Mbps (supposed to be 2Mbps or 3Mbps). These Wi-Tribe plans come in both the 4G USB sticks or the WiFi modem for fixed-wireless kit (I'm more interested in the fixed-wireless like that of Smart Bro). Anyway, since this is still a wireless broadband connection, the speeds you'll get won't be consistent and will depend your location and…

Wi-Tribe offers Php200 per GB bandwidth

Relevance: 89%      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…

Wi-Tribe 4G Broadband Launched

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: February 9, 2010

I actually deferred writing about it last December as requested by telco insiders but looks like the cat is finally out the hat. Wi-Tribe Philippines did a soft launch recently offering WiMax broadband internet in Metro Manila. We already knew that this new telco challenger, Liberty Telecoms, is a partnership between San Miguel Corporation and Q-Tel (Qatar Telecoms). The service is called Wi-Tribe and ads have been published on newspapers and flyers recently (I got a flyer yesterday). Wi-Tribe is offering WiMax broadband internet for an introductory price of Php998 per month with up to 1Mbps bandwidth. There's a 24-month…

Wi-Tribe doubles up bandwidth to 6GB

Relevance: 86%      Posted on: March 16, 2010

Had a talk over the phone with one of Wi-Tribe's representatives last Saturday and we discussed about the 3GB monthly bandwidth allocation which we reported last month. They said that they've considered the merits and clarified a number of issues, including that 1am to 7am open window (which is actually still logged by at just 25% of actual usage, though I am told it's not final/implemented yet). Moreover, starting Monday (yesterday), they've already increased the monthly allocation to 6GB. However, once that allocation is used up, the accounts will still work but the speed will be adjusted down. Existing subscribers…

The Typhoon that busted my DSL Modem

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: June 23, 2008

In the years that typhoons have hit Metro Manila, none have dealt much damage to electronics at home. That's until Typhoon Frank hit Manila this week-end. It's all Frank's fault - the metrowide blackout busted my DSL modem. When the power went back on, everything seemed normal except for the SpeedStream 5100 ADSL modem that PLDT provided with my line. The damn thing just won't turn on again. Nothing, nil zilch. Must have been fried or something. Already reported to PLDT Customer Service about it and they promised to replace the modem with a newer model. Hopefully, they'd deliver it…

Is the analog phone modem on its way out?

Relevance: 76%      Posted on: May 25, 2010

Have recently noticed that a lot of the newer laptop and netbook units coming out this year have skipped the once obligatory analog phone modem. About a decade ago, that RJ11 port is one of the most important ports you need when connecting to the internet as dial-up modems were the norm. Today, that has been mostly replaced by the LAN port and WiFi. Maybe that's the reason laptop manufacturers have oftentimes skipped this port in the newer models. There are still a number of ISPs today that cater to the dial-up market (ISP Bonanza comes to mind) and for…

The Curious Case of Wi-Tribe Bandwidth Cap

Relevance: 75%      Posted on: February 19, 2010

The recent soft-launch of Wi-Tribe in the Philippines drew mixed reactions. While a number of people were excited about another telco-challenger, a few others who've tried it during the beta phase are complaining about the bandwidth cap. The biggest complaint so far is the bandwidth caps being imposed by Wi-Tribe (although we already know other telcos are also doing some sort of bandwidth capping for years now). Some reports coming in is that P2P traffic is limited to only 3GB per month. However, if you use the service between 1am to 7am, your bandwidth usage will not be logged/monitored (according…

WiMax Round-Up: Globe vs Smart vs Wi-Tribe

Relevance: 74%      Posted on: July 26, 2010

I think we're a bit fortunate to have 3 competing WiMax providers in the Philippines -- there's Globe, Smart and Liberty Telecoms. But just like the existing 3G networks that have been rolled out for years, WiMax is also dependent on location. For reference, here's a comparative chart of what the three telcos are offering -- starting from 512Kbps up to 2Mbps. Of the three, only Wi-Tribe is offering speeds of up to 2Mbps. Likewise, only Wi-Tribe is very transparent with their bandwidth capping policies. Globe also does bandwidth capping which is stated, in fine print, in the contract. I'm…
