Huawei E5 “Pocket MiFi” Review

Relevance: 83%      Posted on: November 30, 2010

There was a time when mobile Internet was considered a luxury service. It was only limited to corporate executives who needs mobile Internet to access Outlook emails and SharePoint files. Globe's Visibility and Smart WeRoam were still uber expensive and you're locked with a contract. Prepaid 3G or even EDGE connection is non-existent. Then 3G USB dongles came and swept the world by storm. 3G services are now more accessible to everyone. Students can now have mobile Internet on their laptops to do their research, thesis and homework almost anytime and everywhere as long as you have a 3G connection.…

Makati is definitely Globeland

Relevance: 63%      Posted on: March 14, 2006

Been over a week now that everytime I hang out at Greenbelt 3, I get this feeling that Airborneaccess' (AA) wifi service is slowly fading away from the area. If you've been to Seatlle's Best, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Figaro and Starbucks around this area, you'll see good signal reception from GlobeQuest but AA is virtually non-existent. Anyway, I checked AA's Wifi Pathfinder and their database of locations in fact listed cafes such as Starbucks GB3, Starbucks GB1, Starbucks 6750, and Seattle's Best GB3. But now, none of them have AA wifi -- I did check all of them.…

Looks like an HSPA+ capable pocket WiFi is now available in the grey market -- we spotted one a week ago over at TPC, a ZTE MF60 4G, selling for Php7,500. The device works the same as the old portable WiFi devices, only that this model supports the new HSPA+ network from both Globe and Smart -- and as such has the possibility to reach the 10Mbps or 12Mbps downlink speeds of the telco.

That 100Mbps Internet Speed in Japan?

Relevance: 33%      Posted on: November 24, 2010

So one of the most anticipated stuff I had to check out when I arrived here in Japan is their broadband internet speeds. I've seen it in South Korea so I have na idea how it would be here. After having problems with the (absence of a) LAN port in my Macbook Air, I fired up the browser and checked my internet speed. Here's what I got. Download speed on torrents isn't fast though. Will try out other connections but I saw a MiFi being offered in stores that promises up to 42Mbps 3G speeds.
