According to a recent study conducted by On Device Research, 41-percent of the 900 respondents that they’ve interviewed are happy with the speed of their mobile internet connection, and only a quarter are pissed about theirs. 41-percent seems like a good number on paper, but if we take a closer look at the data, it shows that 59%, or 3 out of 5 respondents are either feeling ‘meh’ or unsatisfied with the current internet speed in the country.

Unlimited Int’l Data Roaming with Globe

Relevance: 94%      Posted on: January 14, 2011

International data roaming has become one of the most dreaded activity when traveling abroad. I've been bitten with one for a smacking Php25,000 bill after an overnight stay in Singapore a couple of years back. And I only used up about 40+MB of bandwidth during that 24-hour stay. Since then, I have never attempted to activate data roaming when on trips. Looks like I'll be tempted again this time now that Globe and Bridge Alliance has partnered to offer Bridge DataRoamUnlimited. Rates are as follows: $10 for 24 hours $27 for 3 days $40 for 5 days That's already pretty…

Due to that Unli-LTE or Unli-Data brouhaha from the last couple of months, there has been a lot of complaints regarding the Fair Use Policy implemented by Globe. To address this mis-information, it looks like they're now calling it the way it should be. So instead of the Unli-Internet or the Unli-Data being offered as a base service to mobile postpaid plans, they're placing the data cap right front and center. Hence, the previous Unli-Data which has been redefined by their FUP as 3GB of LTE then unlimited access to the 2G network is now a standard. Subscribers will be…
