Globe on Tattoo, WiMax and GPON 100Mps

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 currently unreachable by traditional wired lines, Globe WiMax offers 3 different plans:

WiMax Plan 795
up to 512Kbps Fixed Wireless Internet
Php795 MSF

WiMax Plan 995
up to 512Kbps Fixed Wireless Internet
Landline Phone
Php995 MSF

WiMax Plan 1,295
up to 1Mbps Fixed Wireless Internet
Landline
Php1,295 MSF

Globe is offering a 1-month money-back guarantee so if you’re not satisfied, just return the devices and get back all the money that you’ve paid. Globe claims majority of the over 4,000 new subscribers are switchers from other fixed wireless broadband services.

Lastly, the mobile 3G Globe Tattoo on prepaid and postpaid plans:

Globe Tattoo Prepaid: Php1,895 (with free Php100 load)

Globe Broadband Tattoo Plan 799
60 hours on 3G, 2 hours on WiZ
Php799 MSF

Globe Broadband Tattoo Plan 999
75 hours on 3G, 3 hours on WiZ
Php999 MSF

Globe Broadband Tattoo Plan 1499
120 hours on 3G, unlimited hours on WiZ
Php1,499 MSF

My eyes are set on that 10Mbps and 100Mbps Hyper-Speed Plans (GPON). I asked Globe executives if they will allow these connections to be used for internet cafes and they said yes.

On the other hand, Globe did not give a comment on the latest release of the Apple iPhone 3G S.

    sa bolinao, pangasinan kami. we got globe wireless 512 kbps at P795/month. ang maximum download speed namin ay 50kbps sa madaling araw at during the whole day nasa 20-40 kbps. sa ngayon, ang download speed ko ay nasa less than 10 kbps at dumadalas 800 bits/sec! parang totoo ang sabi na sa umpisa lang maganda, after 2 or so months pangit na servise ng globe. huawie ang canopy namin, pangit daw ito. gusto ko magpalit to wimax (globe or smart) pero nakaka discourage din ang mga nababasa ko. tapos na rin ako sa smart bro usb at tattoo usb. wala na yata akong matinong choice.

    I think we have different experiences I wrote an article about choosing GLOBE then PLDT http://www.farneville.com/2010/03/reasons-why-i-chose-globe-than-pldt.html

    People will always have different experiences with Globe. On my case (Malibay, Pasay City), I get up to 300 KB / s in a 1 mbps connection + landline (w/c is supposedly 128 kb/s only). There were some times when internet was down, but it doesn’t last more than 3 days (usually I report it on the 2nd day though)

    That’s more than what I bargained for. =D
