Bayan Broadband 512 Speed Test

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: February 2, 2010

We're able to get a review unit of the new Bayan Broadband 3G service. Their claim of TrueSpeed is hinged on the promise that they can deliver true 512Kbps EV-DO to your home as long as the signal is strong. The device is similar to the USB dongle you've seen with Globe, Smart and Sun Cellular. The modem is made by ZTE and the design series is the same as the one by Smart (the UAAP/NCAA series). Unlike the other telcos though, this one doesn't seem to have a SIM card in it. All I did was fire up the…

Relevance: 79%      Posted on: July 29, 2011

A recent speed test conducted by an independent professional engineering service, NESIC, showed that Smart Bro got better results, over-all. See some of the findings of the tests below. The tests were conducted from July 4 to 6, 2011 in 100 test locations nationwide. The results were shared to members of the media during lunch today with reps from NESIC and Smart answering questions from the press. The tool used to measure the data was Speedtest.net and the text server is located in San Francisco, USA (SF Monkey Brains server). Average speed test is taken from a sample of 5…

Red Mobile 3G Speed Test

Relevance: 69%      Posted on: January 8, 2009

Now that the dust has settled on Red Mobile, we took the new service for a spin and tested the 3G speeds. Considering that Red Mobile is running under Smart's 3G network, we should be able to compare how much bandwidth it was alloted. I did the same methodology here for this test -- doing several runs on SpeedTest.net, dropping the highest and lowest scores and getting the average. I used a Nokia E51 and PC Suite to hook the PC for 3G internet. During the test, the phone was indicating it is getting HSDPA (3.5G) signal. The average speeds…

Fort’s Radar-powered Traffic Speed Detection

Relevance: 61%      Posted on: May 4, 2010

I've seen this for over a month now every time I go to the Fort Bonifacio Global City and at first I thought it was nothing but then I encountered several motorists being flagged down by traffic enforcers. Turns out those LED signs aren't measuring the air temperature but the speed of cars passing by the monitors. If you're not familiar with how they look like, here's a photo I took today. The usual speed limits are 40kmph and 50 kmph. The LED signages will show the current speeds of approaching vehicles. If there are multiple cars coming in at…

Smart LTE speed test on Sony Xperia V LTE

Relevance: 54%      Posted on: December 23, 2012

One of the first LTE smartphones to arrive and be available to subscribers is the Sony Xperia V LTE. It was launched in the Philippines around 2nd week of December and offered by Smart under UnliData Plan 2000. The Xperia V is somewhat akin to Sony's flagship Xperia TX that was launched a couple of months ago. The design was inspired by the signature arched posterior of the Sony-Ericsson Xperia Arc. Hardware specs aside, the highlight of this device is the LTE capability (said to reach up to 100Mbps). Sony Xperia V LTE specs: 4.3” HD display @ 342ppi w/…

“Up To” Broadband Speeds are Bogus

Relevance: 52%      Posted on: August 19, 2010

That's according to a recent report of the FCC in the US -- broadband subscribers in the US only get around 50% of the promised internet speeds by service providers. If the report were for the Philippines, I would not be surprised. So, it's not only us here but also in first world countries like the US & UK. So I fired up my browser and checked Speed Test: I'm subscribed to a 2Mbps connection and usually get around 1Mbps. Now that's also 50% of promised (same %age loss like in the US). I think the reason why, despite the…

Sky Broadband offers 112Mbps for Php19,999

Relevance: 50%      Posted on: August 20, 2010

Heard about this yesterday but wasn't able to verify it until today when I visited their booth and asked for a demo. Yes, you read it right -- Sky Broadband is offering up to 112Mbps residential cable internet. Then, I saw this banner/standee that says it's really 112Mbps and not the 12Mbps we already knew they're offering for about 2 years now. Yeah, I couldn't believe myself. So I had to see and test it. So here's the YouTube clip I took while testing it on SpeedTest: From our tests, it was able to register 86Mbps downstream and 4.3Mbps upstream.…

Got home this evening to find pamphlets at my doorstep from Globe. Apparently they are now offering broadband connections to residential areas with speeds of up to 2Mbps. Sweet. Here are the DSL rates and prices: *GenTxt Express Unlimited Monthly Fee: Php995 DSL Speed: 384kbps Express Unlimited Monthly Fee: Php1,495 (promo price of Php995 just now) DSL Speed: 384kbps Explore Silver Monthly Fee: Php1,995 DSL Speed: 768kbps Explore Gold Monthly Fee: Php2,995 DSL Speed: 2Mbps * I think the GenTxt plan is for students.

SpeedTest Report: 10Mbps Tattoo Home Broadband

Relevance: 50%      Posted on: October 28, 2013

So I finally got the much-needed DSL upgrade at home. We upped our broadband plan from the usual 2Mbps (a 2nd DSL as backup) to 10Mbps and made it our primary fixed-line connection. We decided to make the move after burning thru the battery of the HTC One which I've used as an LTE hotspot for 3 months. It was a costly move and now I don't waht to do the same thing to my LG G2. So an upgrade to the home DSL is more convenient. Here's the speed test we got from the 10Mbps line. Did it in…
