Results: Mobile 3G Usage

We’ve got over a hundred submissions from our recent poll on mobile 3G services. The results are not that surprising but the breakdown of services is a bit interesting though. See figures and graphs after the jump.

Quite a number of users have already been using their new uMobile SIMs too (7.19%) while fledgling Sun Cellular 3G is still down there. Surprisingly, very few people are using PLDT WeRoam — a service which has practically been supplanted by SmartBro Mobile 3G.

3G usage is split between Smart/PLDT and Globe Telecom two-to-one as shown in the table below.

Sun Cellular may get additional share by end of this year once they market their 3G services. uMobile on the other hand, though an autonomous telco is still considered a Smart/PLDT property and their free ad-supported 3G services will certainly bump up their total numbers.

    I use both Smart and Globe 3G and it’s pretty clear that Smart’s 3G is much better. It’s faster and more reliable. Globe 3G bites.

    why does 3g have to be that expensive!

    I’ve tried Sun 3G, it works even with my old 2G sim so long as I change the network settings on my phone. Ok naman for phone browsing. I heard they also now just charge P10 for 30 mins use, valid pa for 2 hours. hope they offer unlimited data soon too :-D
