Sun Cellular still hitting high growth at 17%




This year is a big year for Digitel Mobile Philippines, Inc or commonly known as Sun Cellular. The company celebrates a successful two quarters of the year with a 17% increase in net service revenue as compared to last year, the highest we’ve seen from any telco this year.

Sun Cellular has seen dramatic increase in revenue on almost all of their services including prepaid, postpaid and broadband. The company believes that this growth is due to the introduction of the new prepaid offerings and enticing postpaid plans and flexible broadband offerings.

However, according to the telco’s President and CEO Orlando Vea, the biggest factor to be credited to this sucess is their strong partnership with PLDT. This has brought a lot of improvements on their networks and according to him they’ll continue to expand their network coverage.

Things are looking good for the company so far and we hope that this trend continues as they close out the year.

    Sun sucks, during the floods the service wasnt working hardly at all, couldnt text or call out. And delayed texts

  4. 'em says:

    This only means it is still profitable to offer maximized unlimited services!

    I’ll be extending my contract with Sun for another 30months!

      I like their postpaid service. I will also get mine but with a different plan or what is the latest high-end phone plan when my contract expires.

    hspda connection here in bulacan and makati.. i tested it along mrt north to ayala mrt. I am getting 1-3.5 mbps with sun postpaid plan :)

    A loyal Sun customer here. i like their service but at times, i hate it when my msgs wont be sent. Still a prepaid customer and still happy with their promos.

    havent tried their net though.

    Sun’s prepaid broadband is not bad at all!
    I was able to use it for work and play.

    I work as a system admin, and we have to log on to different servers remotely and that is a bandwidth hog, but Sun was able to handle it.

    Also, I play GG/DOTA with my friends, and we enable trashtalk by using Skype while we’re playing, and there wasn’t any noticeable lag sa game namin! (Gabi till madaling araw kmi naglalaro)

    I just used Sun’s P100 unli-broadband that is good for three days!

    Pagdating nman sa mga Unli calls at text, Sun parin!

    Sa Globe ksi, ang hirap magregister for Unli, lalo pag weekends, Sa Smart nman, makaka-register ka kgad, pero ang hirap nmang tumawag using the Unli-calls promo, hanggang sa mag-expire nalang yung Unli mo sa Smart, nde kpa rin maka-konek, So, USELESS ang Smart Unli calls!!!

    Sa Sun, magregister ka ng Unli-calls/text or Internet, mabilis lang! and not bad talaga yung speed nila!

    I’m just using an open line Huawei E153u-2 modem.

    I use the modem in Cavite and Makati.

    Para sakin, Sulit talaga ang Sun!

    • John says:

      Totally agree with you !! Sun always has full bars of 3G HSPA unlike Globe… I always get 2.2 Mbps tops with my sun internet tethered to my laptop. What speeds are you getting ?

    • mimi says:

      Hi what’s your location in cavite. plan to get a pocket wifi myself but im having second thoughts coz the lady i talked to at the sun shop was not sure if the connection is good here in molino. thanks!

  9. wiz says:

    ung text unli 200 na promo palang panalo na.
    ang bilis pa ng net unlike globe and smart na super bagal.
    sana mag improve signal ng 3g and 2g sa mga provinces

  10. jonski22 says:

    we bought the sun pocket wifi last friday…and they say it will be activated in 24hrs..guess what? till now it won’t receive a signal..hence we don’t have an internet during the weekend…

  11. Ceej91 says:

    Is there any difference in speeds between prepaid and postpaid?
