Speak and Surf is Globe’s answer to Smart Bro?

While we were on the topic of broadband, I asked more about Globe’s Speak and Surf and found out some really juicy details about their new product. I believe this was also mentioned during our last meet-up when the Globe Team did their presentation.

  • Out of the box solution for broadband internet and landline telephone.
  • Use the wireless internet and the phone at the same time.
  • Connects to Globe cellsites using a wireless modem/router via CDMA technology.
  • Up to 256Kbps connection speed.
  • Costs Php995 per month including the phone line.
  • Free text messenging within the network (500 SMS per month unlimited for the first 3 months)

Globe Speak and Surf

I was told that this hasn’t been rolled out commercially but they’ve been doing rounds door-to-door. We should be seeing print ads and TV commercials by October. Hopefully, this would answer the growing complaints for a Smart Bro alternative.

    d ako naniniwala 380+kbps upload speed mo, ang max upload speed lng for 512kbps bandwitdh eh 128kbps, so kung 380 ung sau nde kapanipaniwala, at wireless pa gamit mo, kung wired yan pwede pa cguro, and about sa wireless technology, nde naman tlga need maintindihan ng end user kung pano gumagana ang wireless technology, ang kailangan lng nila is ung quality service, ung katumbas ng binabayad ng end user, so ang pinakamagandang connection pa rin is ung wired, dahil sa wireless nde ka makakakuha ng consistent bandwidth

    diyan kayo nag kakamili maraming dapat gawin para bumilis ang connection minsan tayo puro reklamo pero kahit tayo lang may magagawa para bumilis ang connection kahit di tumawag o mag reklamo sa isp naten puwedi kang gumamit ng dns or maghanap ng magandang ip address sa isp at dapat malakas din makakuha ng signal ako dati bagsak sa 100 kbps nayon kuha ko hangan 900 pataas

    kapag yang mga telecom companies na iyan eh nag insist na padagdagan ang bayad para gumanda ang service (ex. padagdagan ba naman ang tubo ng smart bro for 10ft. for 2000php?) sabihin niyo “teka, binayaran na namin yan nung nagapply kami ah… diba kasama na yan dun sa 995?”

    and then kapag tumawag kau sa CS ng smart, globe, SKY, bayantel, or kung ano man na ISP sabihin niyo sa operator na kausap niyo

    “Naku, ganyan naman lagi cnasabi niyo eh, pustahan tau dun sa susunod mo kausapin, sabihin mo, naku sir, paki ping nalang po ung blah blah blah. paki check kung umiilaw ung modem… at ito pa sasabihin nila, paki monitor nalang po for the next 24 hours”

    naku cnagot ko nga siya doon sa cnabi niya na un na pakimonitor for the next 24 hours. sabi ko

    “naku, ang tagal niyo ng cnasabi yan.. hindi ko na nga alam kung anong pagmomonitor ang gagawin ko… 15, 17, 22, or 32 inches na monitor”

    hehe… asar…
