    obviously wala kang LTE subscription. Di porke ganon nakikita sa paper eh ganon mo na itatake.

    Ako naka LTE plan ako at sinasabi ko sayo na dito sa Mandaluyong Area, mas mabilis pa minsan 3g ko sa LTE.

    TANGA LANG. Subscribe ka muna ng LTE subscription. Obvious na obvious na hearsay at papel lang ang basehan. Palitan mo na kasi 3310 mo!

      ang kulit nito. ang point ko, not all the time, mas mabilis ang LTE sa 3G ok? No absolutes and no consistency. Tinanong mo kasi sa una mong post kung kelan naging mas mabilis ang 3G sa LTE. Oh ayan, may situation, di mo parin matanggap. Ina naman. kung di ka maniwala, problema mo na yan.

      You are completeley missing the point of your argument. Bagay sayo name mo bro. nakaka sigh ka eh. hahaha.

      WEW… TANGA
