Wi-Tribe 4G Broadband Launched

I actually deferred writing about it last December as requested by telco insiders but looks like the cat is finally out the hat. Wi-Tribe Philippines did a soft launch recently offering WiMax broadband internet in Metro Manila.

We already knew that this new telco challenger, Liberty Telecoms, is a partnership between San Miguel Corporation and Q-Tel (Qatar Telecoms). The service is called Wi-Tribe and ads have been published on newspapers and flyers recently (I got a flyer yesterday).

wi-tribe

Wi-Tribe is offering WiMax broadband internet for an introductory price of Php998 per month with up to 1Mbps bandwidth. There’s a 24-month lock-in period.

As a comparison, Globe Telecom introduced WiMax last year with a starting plan of 512Kbps for Php795. It now offers 1Mbps WiMax for Php995.

A number of beta-testers have been using the Wi-Tribe service for several months now. If you’re one of them, let us know you impression of the service. You can download their application form here.

The San Miguel and QTel partnership is a solid one that could prove to be a formidable challenger to the current broadband internet market. We always welcome competition.

    Got mine for 598, i was getting 0.70 to 1.1 mbps, a month after, they launch their promo pay in advance and you’ll get up to 3 months of free internet. I went to their shop and got surprised they’re also giving the wi-fi router for free if you avail the 998 package. I then decided to double up my speed and avail promo. When i got home i was so excited to use my new connection and found out i was only getting 1.2mbps speed. Got disappointed but and i was hoping they just havnt activated my 2 mbps connection. Got the highest connection speeed of 1.2 in 5 days, I was calling them almost every night to complain. We run-through with their regular process of reset, and getting the signal quality which they say the connection with their relay station is GOOD. They then advised me to wait for sunday and have their technical guy visit me. That day came, the guy had his laptop with him and tested the bandwidth, its really 1.2Mbps. Then he said “Sir, marami na nga hong nag co complain, nag start po yan yung magbigay sila ng promo. Halos lahat po ng pinuntahan ko ngayon ay nagagalit dahil mabagal ang connection. Masyado na kasi madami client namin” I’m very disappointed with Wi-tribe. Ayusin nyo sana service nyo, hindi yung panay promotions. Dumadami clients nyo pero bumabagal naman surfing namin.

    WI TRIBE SUCKS! dati medyo maayos pa mga bandang early 2010, nung nag 2011 at lalo na ngaung 2012, PUTA, gusto ko ng basagin ung modem!!! seryoso ako. ewan ko kung minority lang ba ng consumers ng witribe ang nakakaexperience nito or marami rami din. nakakainis. papacancel ko na ung wi tribe this week. magbabalik loob na ako sa dati naming internet.

    WI TRIBE SUCKS. bihira lang ako mang-bash, pero for 998 a month, hindi kayo worth it. mas mabilis pa ung mga kinakabit na usb/internet eh

    Sorry nag vent out.

    Me too, I am so disappointed with their service. super bagal. 2 mbps din yung samin. mabilis daw ang connection. pero mahirap pala talaga maniwala agad lalo na kung magaling mambola na highest speed ang connection nila. e mas mabilis pa nga ang dial up namin nuon sa PLDT na worth hundreds lang. mas lalo naman ang smartbro kahit umulan malakas parin ang signal at kahit 1 or 2 months pa hindi makabayad ok lang. unlike sa bulok na witribe na ito grabe, pahirapan talaga! 11 na nga ng gabi mas ini expect ko na makakagamit ako ng maayos ng internet dahil may pasok sa araw.paputol putol ang connections ng WI TRIBE! hindi lang yun, pag umuulan halos hindi na sya makahanap ng signal. location ko pala FIlinvest East Cainta, Rizal.naglalaro lang sa isa, dalawa ang nahahagap nyang signal. knowing na nasa 2nd floor na halos nakalabas na sa window namin yung pangkuha ng signal. pero napaka poor ng service nila. ang napaka grabe pa dun, once na hindi ka lang makabayad sa kanila ng 1 month putol agad. pero ang connection service nila mag susuffer ang gagamit dahil hindi mo maenjoy, lalo na at mas mabagal pa sa dial up ang service nila. yun namang agent syempre ganado magpunta may pupunta para daw ayusin. tapos pag andyan na at nakita lang na walang signal at hindi maka konek tatawagan nya pa daw yung marunong sa pc na taga ayos nila. tapos maghihintay ka nanaman ulit dumating yung tech nila tapos after a few more days ganun nanaman ulit ang problema, alam mo yun, nakakaloko. tapos syempre hihingi pa sayo ng pamasahe yung agent na nagpunta sayo. o diba san ka pa? hay kaya nga aburido ako halos araw araw. kaya plan ko na din talagang tapusin nalang yung binayad namin then GOODBYE na sa WI TRIBE na HIGH SPEED KUNO! Bulok naman pala!
