Globe WiMax tops at 8Mbps uncapped

Relevance: 100%      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…

Globe Innove to launch WiMax Service in 2008

Relevance: 99%      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…

Relevance: 96%      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…

WiMax is 3G?

Relevance: 89%      Posted on: October 20, 2007

This seems to be a very interesting development. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has approved WiMax, a non-cellular telecommunications technology, as part of the union's 3G standards. The decision, made at the ITU's Radiocommunication Sector's (ITU-R) general meeting in Geneva , Switzerland, means operators with 3G spectrum in the 2.5 GHz bands globally can use WiMAX to build out a network. Although each country's regulators ultimately decide, the ITU decision usually has a strong influence. Individual governments will independently decide whether they want to adopt and follow the ITU decision. If and when this is applied in the Philippines by…

Mobile WiMax: So near yet so far.

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: February 21, 2008

A short news report today from Inquirer says that Mobile WiMax in the Philippines will be rolled out by the end of the year. Could this be the Globe Innove and Intel Philippines WiMax service I blogged about last October? Or, it could also be start-up company Happy Communications. My source who's close to an Intel executive says it's coming real soon. The story from Inquirer.net is not clear exactly when or who are involved though: Navin Shenoy, vice president and general manager for Asia Pacific of Intel Semiconductor Ltd., said Intel has already seen commercial WiMAX services launched in…

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

Relevance: 87%      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…
