    But you must have a wimax enabled laptop or desktop computer in order to use this technology.

  7. Lezuric says:

    I wish I could have GPON connection here in our location. By the way does Gumaca Quezon includes WiMax coverage?

  8. Carl says:

    Can we convert our current Globe DSL line to WiMax?

  9. Dabawenyo says:

    Don’t they have plans to expand also in Davao?

  10. Leoj says:

    Thanks Sir Abe for featuring this. I wish our area (Bukidnon) will be covered soon. I am a subscriber of Broadband Wireless, accdg to the marketer my connection is up to 512kbps at P995 per month. they provided me with the new 3g Router B933 + outdoor antenna. But I’ve got bad experience with this provider. No idea where to contact them. I know their website but hanvt checked it for contacts. My location is good, and I’ve got full signal and can achieve HSDPA connection,however connection is still intermittent. Many “request time-out” upon using the ping command. However I have downloaded DVD for one night from rapidshare using premium account. Connection and Downloading are better between 1-5am but during the day the connection is bad. I cant use the speedtest.net. It takes to long to open it, no way of determining the speed of my internet during the day. Thanks.

    I wonder kung meron ng forum na nagdi-discuss ng speed ng globe wimax.

  13. Eugene says:

    I have requested Wimax since 5/23. They stopped sales from the Tagaytay office and instead offer 3g. I told the guy that I wanted the 1mbps wimax.

    Globe, please if you are not going to have any modems available… don’t do press releases saying it is now available.

    a personal complaint.

    Master YugaTech, I have a Dell Studio XPS 13 laptop and its WiMax enable (Mobile Broadband enabled and yes, it has a sim card slot), can I avail of the service without any required equipments (USB Modem) and with WiMAX can I use internet anywhere I go in the metro?

    • yuga says:

      I think it’s possible as long as your built-in 3G/Wimax modem has the proper device drivers and dialer. All you will need is the settings.

  19. VinS says:

    Thanks Master YugaTech! I’ll go to globe now, and inquire for the service.

  20. vern says:

    It’s junk when companies use tech terms such as WiMax, but don’t actually offer of have the capability to offer WiMax speeds. The speed they are offering can be accomplished with 3G … 3G can offer 7 times faster speeds. Everyone get excited for WiMax that is slower than standard modern 3G on a decent network.

  21. DecryptedSoul says:

    from mindanao…particularly zamboanga… had my connection for almost a week.. so far ok naman yung speed delivered as promised 512 kbps. sumosobra pa nga minsan e umaabot pa ng 600+ kbps. Kahit na dalawang bar lang signal ko consistent naman yung speed nya. although may minor glitches sa connection minsan nawalan ako ng signal for i think 20 minutes akala ko eto na yung mga nababasa ko sa mga blogs na mga problema sa globe. buti na lang bumalik ulet. tsaka napapasin ko minsan nag titimeout yung connection habang nag brobrowse ka. or kung iwan mong idle yung connection mo for a few minutes nawawala sya. baket kaya yan? Napansin ko rin hinde ko ma ping yung sariling ip address na assign sa akin palaging timeout.. kahit nag brobrowse ako…

  22. Likke says:

    A Globe guy just came here in our place yesterday to offer testing for their WIMAX in our aread (Lapulapu City Cebu). They are processing my account for a free 3 week trial 1MBps connection for 995, no obligations to continue service. I told them that I wanted to test the reliability of their service compared to my current SMARTBRO 384kbps for 999.

    If I end up a satisfied WIMAX user, Im not sure if i would still cancel my smartbro. It’s so hard to deal with CS and techs. I dont want any charges.

    just visited the globelines wireless yesterday. my location is davao. inquired for the said wimax plan 995 but not yet available in our area. im just wondering why its not available till now in fact our neighboring cities like panabo city and digos city are wimax capable already. iv read a thread last year about the issue of the frequency between globe and home channel that could be the cause of the said of delay but still its been way too long to have not settled the problem. the csr in globe can’t give a good reason for the unavailability of the wimax plan. i hope globe could do something about this. its just depressing on our part.

  27. Nad Bautista says:

    be careful guys…it has limited internet usage…their commercial on Tv that its unlimited, ITS NOT TRUE…. 1mbps plan naka limits for 20 to 25gig only and the 512kbps plan is only up to 10gig to 15gig of download…its very deceiving we were not inform

  34. Compassionate for the vast inspect, but I’m really attached the new Zune, and outlook this, as fountainhead as the fantabulous reviews several other grouping have backhand, gift work you settle if it’s the moral option for you.

    ” This is issue is TRUE….100% TRUE, its only limited—-may unlimited ba na limited????? Ang Globe kasi marunong mag sinungaling….I’m just new to this WI-Max but the Agents didn’t tell me na it has a limited access of 20-25GB of downloads per month only….so i didn’t enjoy that much….i’ll gonna return their product this coming week!! “

    • roger says:

      Talaga naman, kahit sino pang provider, basta dumarami na ang subscriber bumabagal talaga, they should upgrade their tech from time to time to cope up with the demands..

      Ito pa may mga contractor na hindi minomonitor ng Globe.. are they aware na maraming installer na mga sinungaling and dishonest , subra cong maningil ng installation fee.. nanunulot ng subscribers na galing na sa ibang agents… pag ni rereport mo naman sa Globe mismo parang walang nangyari hindi cila nakikinig.. at the end sila rin nasisira…Lalo na dito sa Butuan City and contractor dyan na covered ang Agusan del sur, ay nako hindi marunong mag alaga na agents nila at mga subscriber, mga halimaw ang mga installer nila, kasi at the same time nag e agent din, dapat pag installer ay installer lang, kasi sinusolot nila ang subs na galing sa ibang agents… Globe Wake up ! monitor your contractors..
