There’s no information on which areas or cities (an agent says it will be initially available in selected areas in Metro Manila or NCR) SmartBro WiMax will be available and how it’s going to differentiate itself from its existing SmartBro Share-It or SmartBro Fixed Wireless packages (which offers up to 2Mbps).

  1. Does anybody know how good the signal strength is in Cebu city?

  2. I have a few friends that said that wimax is super slow in some parts of the cebu.

  3. i’ve been using WiMax for two months, i live in Dasma Cavite, it works just fine for me. most of the time my signal is 3 bars to four bars only, i haven’t seen it in five,

    • hello, ask ko lang ok ba yung wimax plan 799?
      dasma cav din ako e..

    smartbro canopy 2mbps – smartbro wimax 1mbps only. so yep id rather stay with canopy, minsan pa nga 3mbps connection ko jijijiji (canopy user from makati)

  5. Ewan ko ba kung bakit sobrang bagal ng internet sa Pilipinas, kung titingnan mo ang speed sa ibang bansa… sa kanila, ang 5mbps classified as slow connection…

    @everyone: I suggest if you really want a good internet provider and cheap chose smart but it depends on plans. We have plug-it-share it and 1 yr na kaming di binibigyan ng sakit ng ulo. Don’t purchase wimax and canopy they’re sucks! ;)

  7. pwede kaya ang smart wimax sa laoag city ilocos norte or near laoag?itong wimax kapag walang signal na 3g or 4g ay makakaconnect pa rin ba?

    • Manila Talata

      naku girl kami ngang nasa main city hirap sa net connection sa laog pa kaya? Hehe!

      Share ko lang ulit: Yung cousin ko nag-avail ng canopy with 1 month free and hp printer na ibenenta sa ate ko after using 4 times naku bumigay naging dahilan pa ng away nila pero isinangguni na namin sa HP Center at pinalitan nila ng bago gang ngayon maayos namang nagagamit. But what important here is my cousin’s canopy no choice siya 24mos. siyang magdurusa sa connection niya 3rd flr din sila at sa pinakatuktok na nga nakatayo ang canopy pero para lang siyang kbps. No choice na siya naka-kontrata kasi. sa PLDT 1 yr contract lang sa Smart at Globe 2yrs oh san ka pa?

  8. ika 3months na namin sa smart wimax, sa una lang pala ang mabilis after a month sobrang bagal na talaga. not been using my smart wimax anymore. waste of money lang talaga.. paying the smart company without getting any services.. ilang times na kami tumatawag sa customers service nila same phrase lang ang sinasabi. check the speed test.. mabuti na lang mabait yung nagrent sa amin ng apartment pinashare muna kami ng connection. guys never get a wimax sa smart.. its really sucks..

    • helloangel99

      wow! tnx coz theres a forum like this, and Im about to get wimax, but now I read your comments. better to cancel it.

    • i agree w/ you Lizzy., smartbro service are really sucks.

  9. Yeah i was planning to get a wimax connection.after reading the comments, i changed my mind. Are there are any non-wired offerings that do not have data caps?

  10. ok naman dito samen sa Coron Palawan

  11. Smartbro WIMAX fucking sucks here in Punta Princesa, Cebu City. It’s fucking slow and fucking intermittent! Very disappointing and very frustrating! Fuck you SMART because you’re such a DUMB ASS!!!

  12. magkano po yang smart wimax na yan

  13. fernan Carolino

    yes, the smart wimax is so slow here in cavite.before canopy s pasay p kmi gaun din 4 months ok ang signal after that wl n and now lalong nagdurusa s umpisa lang. bayad k nang bayad walang action d dapat Smart ang tawag s kanila bobo broadband

  14. If you are using canopy it would help kung lalagyan nyo ng password, dahil it works like a Wifi, so malamang pati neighbors nyo nakikishare na sa connection nyo ng free, I suggested this to my friend who are using this and he thank me endlessly for the new discovery, gumanda raw talaga ang signal after making a password for the family.

    • Hi Tom,
      just ask, I’m using Smart WiMax customer premise equipment (indoor CPE) connected to my dd-wrt router as wifi system, how do you put password? I agree to your observation, can you me?
      Thank you so much!

  15. Hello Tom,

    We just applied for Smart Wimax 999 and I’m wondering if it works like a Wifi for the whole house even without router? Or should we need a separate router para magkaroon lang ng Wifi sa buong bahay? Confused kasi kame ng sister ko since dalawa kami with separate laptops gagamit ng net.

    Thanks looking forward for ur response.

    Lizzy, i agree with you, ilang beses kaming nag rereport at tumatawag sa smart service pero same phrase nga answer nila”check speed”,.
    magaling lang sila mag offer at magbenta pero wala silang concern sa subscriber .
    super bagal ng smartbro, Guys,it`s a waste of money kung kukuha kayo ng service nila., don`t try what i am experienceing right now from them.
    im just a concerned citizen (“,).
