Globe Innove to launch WiMax Service in 2008

Relevance: 98%      Posted on: October 28, 2007

Got this from a reliable source and the scoop was Innove is partnering with Intel Philippines to roll out a commercial WiMax service this April 2008. Remember the recent development about WiMax being categorized as a 3G? That means that current telcos having license for 3G can also do WiMax (once the NTC follows the ITU recommendation which they usually do.) On the other hand, while PLDT Smart is banking the future of the country's broadband with UMT/HSDPA, Globe's move to the WiMax will be a welcome development. Intel has been testing WiMax in the Cavite area (Gen. Trias) for…

Globe WiMax tops at 8Mbps uncapped

Relevance: 96%      Posted on: December 11, 2009

While the fastest option/plan currently available on Globe WiMax is only up to 1Mbps, the network can actually deliver real-world speeds of up to 8Mbps. We did the test yesterday with an uncapped WiMax connection at GreenHills, San Juan. SpeedTest detected a maximum connection speed of 8.27Mbps download and 2.58Mbps upload. But again, this is the uncapped connection. You'll get between 384Kbps to 1Mbps when you're on a regular WiMax plan. I'm still pretty curious with WiMax so I've applied for a regular 1Mbps subscription to see how it fares here in my area in Makati. Anybody else out there…

So it's bound to happen -- Globe Telecom's 4G/WiMax Service is now offered in prepaid plans. Just buy the WiMax modem and load it up to get unlimited internet all day. The WiMax modem starts at Php2,990 (one-time) and all-day unlimited internet costs Php60. Speed is up to 512Kbps. Reloading is done via Autoload Max, Share-A-Load, GCash, prepaid cards and even through bank ATM or credit cards.

Intel & Globe teams up for WiMAX

Relevance: 90%      Posted on: October 26, 2005

Globe's broadband subsidiary Innove Communications has partnered with Intel to test out WiMAX for residents in Trece Martirez, Cavite. Trials for WiMax will be done by selected employees of Intel in Cavite. testing will be done in about 3 months and once this has been deemed viable, Globe might offer the service in Metro Manila in as early as 2007. In a news article published in Manila Bulletin here: The availability and pervasiveness of WiMAX-compliant equipment and communication tools will play a major role in determining the timetable for its commercial deployment. According to Intel, the main advocate of WiMAX

Globe WiMax Internet is here!

Relevance: 88%      Posted on: March 26, 2009

Just got an SMS confirmation from Globe that they've already rolled out and servicing customers on their WiMax network. I'm still getting the details but the Inquirer ran the story last night that it will be 512Kbps at Php799 per month. This service will certainly be competing against Smart Bro's Fixed Wireless offering. Will update this post once I get the copy of the press release. Intel's timing was just right when we had the WiMax forum yesterday. Here's part of the Press Release I got: Globe is first in the Philippines to launch Wimax. Available starting March 2009, the…

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

Relevance: 85%      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…

Globe on Tattoo, WiMax and GPON 100Mps

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: June 10, 2009

Yesterday, Globe presented a round-up of their internet services for residential customers. One particular service I only learned of that day was GPON or the Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network, a fiber-to-the-home technology. In preparation for the advent of HDTV and the IPTV in the Philippines, Globe is offering their Hyper-Speed Plans ranging from download of up to 10Mbps and 100Mbps. The monthly service fee for the 10Mbps is Php3,995 while the 100Mbps is Php14,995. Serviceable areas are very limited as of the moment -- Forbes Park and Serendra this June and Bel-Air Village and Urdaneta Village in July. For those…

Smart WiMax coming soon!?

Relevance: 78%      Posted on: May 11, 2010

It has been revealed by Smart executives in previous media interviews but no concrete details have been announced yet. However, it seems like the telco is introducing its own version of what might be called Smart WiMax. A number of sources tipped in saying Smart's WiMax network could be launched as early as May 15, 2010 (that's this Saturday). It's yet unclear which regions will the service be available but initial speculations peg the plans to be similar to Smart's own SmartBro service -- Php998 for up to a 2Mbps plan. Smart has heavily invested in its 3G network for…

The State of WiMax: What’s the real deal?

Relevance: 74%      Posted on: March 30, 2009

A couple of days ago, I attended a WiMax forum hosted by Intel Philippines. They are helping push the use of WiMax in emerging markets where there are very low but fast growing PC users. Why? Well, let's just say that internet connectivity is a single biggest motivation why many households purchase a PC (and Intel is hoping it come with one of their CPUs). As one Intel executive puts it -- "there's no such thing as demand for WiMax, just demand for broadband connectivity". So the next question is, why WiMax? What's the big deal, really? Here are some…
