Several readers sent in reports that Sun Cellular is allegedly capping their 2Mbps unlimited 3G internet (Sun Wireless Broadband) to just 640Kbps.
While this bandwidth capping has not been official confirmed, a number SWB users have been sharing bandwidth results from their experience that there’s indeed some sort of capping going on (using Mobile Data Monitoring Application).
The Sun Wireles Broadband (SWB) unlimited service has a monthly service fee of Php799 (the cheapest 3G internet service in the Philippines) for unlimited 3G internet within Metro Manila. Sun Cellular promises speeds of up to 2Mbps on their 3.5G network. Consumer reports on 640Kbps cap is definitely a significant issue and it’s possible their network is already clogging up (a victim of their own success?).
I have contacted Sun Cellular for an official response to this issue and they promised to get back to me. Will update this post once I get official word from them.
