    cool! I want one!

  2. what type of signal is wimax again?

  3. Dan says:

    Is there any bandwidth limit like Wi-Tribe(6GB) did? if does, how much bandwidth limit?

  4. manaka_junpei says:

    sana Dynamic IP ang SmartBro na yan

  5. Jhay says:

    Again it’s all about location, location, location!

    Can’t wait to see comparative tests between this one and Globe’s WiMax offering.

  6. Teknisyan says:

    Looks like WiTribe will be outplayed by big outfits like Globe and Smart. I guess it’s all about the marketing.

    I guess 3 is better than 1, atleast for a consumer’s point of view… any news about Bayantel’s own version of WiMax?

  7. mindyQ says:

    @Teknisyan

    Bayan is committed to CDMA/EvDo. you can learn more about it on Wikipedia

  8. CrackberryRon says:

    @abeolandres that was quick.so same thing like when I subscribe my BB to BIS.So 4 that HTC notifications should work,thanks sir!

  9. CrackberryRon says:

    @abeolandres Coz I’m having a 2nd thought if I should buy HTC Desire or not coz maybe the push notifiction won’t work for prepaid,thanks!!

  10. kim says:

    oh eto na….Excited na kayo… pero nung unang naglabas nito ang GLobe binabara nilalait ninyo. Tingnan ninyo nagoofer na rin ang smart kasi alam nila natatalo na sila sa market share at mas better na technology ng wimax globe…

    Four months user na ako na Globe wimax never kung naexperience anf pagdown nag signal kahit bumabagyo.

  11. kim tanga says:

    kim bobo much? haha. Hindi pa naman bumabagyo for the past four months so ano pinag-sasabi mo?

  12. Jon says:

    If u were you guys, i wont get too excited. However, this is a good thing since it will somehow decongest, or at least not add more congestion to Smart’s 3G network.

  13. Bhong says:

    @kim… 4 months? el niño season yun ah.mukhang die hard fanatic ka ng Globe wimax. hehehe!

  14. kim wahaha says:

    @kim tanga

    wahaha. ur so mean, pero uu nga nman sobrng init for the last 4 months.

  15. YuYu says:

    Yuga, your right hand seems to be typing faster than your left. can=>cna. lol.

    anyway, Smart WiMax has no bandwidth capping (as of now)

  16. Edgar says:

    Location. Seemed the telcos are each other’s throats in the metro.

  17. Edgar says:

    typo: …are at each other’s ..

  18. Leo says:

    may locked-in period din kaya?

    • yuga says:

      @Leo – like any other Smart service, there’s a lock-in period. Possibly similar to SmartBro Share-It at 24 months.

  19. defunct says:

    naku kung mas ok ito kaysa witribe merun kalalagyan ang witribe ko.

  20. Efren Sy says:

    The Rate is the same but the speed is slower?

    stick with smartbro upto 2mbps they should provide better speeds

    WiMax and WiTribe would then be in danger

  21. flyah says:

    I hope. the telcos would open their eyes and offer their customers with faster connections.

  22. paco says:

    the goog news is walang lock-in period.

  23. Why settle for a lesser speed? Personally, I don’t see this as a viable option for on the go.

    But like what Teknisyan said, 3 providers should be better for us than just 1.

  24. dee says:

    dynamic din sana ung ip? last time i checked witribe, static sya eh. kahit anong power off gawin ko sa modem hehe

  25. toen says:

    hello guys! just want to share up my experience in wimax. currently im working here in Libya at sa company we’re using LibyaMax (Wimax), speed is quite amazing 2.5mbps download and I’m getting even more. The downside… you need a good signal basically your “location” is important, if your a gamer “ping” is a big issue here, and sorry guys sa tingin ko the same din dyan na share ang ip mo sa iba. This is just my experience

  26. xtian says:

    can i hooked it to a wifi router??? plss help!

  27. Manuel says:

    all I can say is… ang bagal parin ng speed and overpriced parin compared to other countries @-) I believe these companies can still push it to around 2-3 Mbps for a thousand pesos. :|

  28. Arvee says:

    Unfortunately for broadband subscribers, SmartBro ventured on WiMax before upgrading their 3G infrastructures and bandwidth. Some still get speeds extremely lower than their advertised 2MBps speed (for some, they’re lucky enough to reach 500KBps). Poor them and all broadband victims. :(

  29. could this be worth it?

  30. jolly nahag says:

    P44599

  31. reymond says:

    my bandwidth ito???

  32. reymond says:

    kung walng banwitdh kuha ako nito …. wala bang 2mbps tulad sa wi-tribe??? kc sinsabi lng unlimited ksu pag na reach muna un banwitdh… prng dial up na…….

  33. adam says:

    Anyone who already tried Sun Cellular’s Digihome. I just saw this advertisement from newspaper.
    Pa inform naman ako if ever.

  34. kenchu55 says:

    guys ano mas maganda ung fix or yang bang wimax …. for me mas gusto ko parin ang canopy bec …. fix at hindi siya hasel saka pag takaw nakaw yan … like globe na wimax ang daming nagbebenta na nakaw… kaya masgusto ko ung canopy …… medjo alanganin yan wimax ….. ok sa ok pero hanggang kailan sya magaling……ahhh one more medjo hnd pa siya magandang gamitin kasi hnd pa nailalabas sa merkado this july pang ilalabas

  35. Les says:

    Guys pano ba malalaman kung wimax nga ang connection na binibigay ng telcos sayo? Baka kasi binigyan ka lang ng dedicated speed pero 3G lang pala…

    Sabi ng iba pag wimax, kung ano yung download speed mo dapat halos pareho din ng upload speed… totoo ba yun?

  36. Leo26 says:

    Actually Guys im using GLOBE WIMAX.. at nagtry ako mag speedtest same ng speed ang UPLOAD & DOWNLOAD..Ok naman sya mabilis… Pero sa tingin ko mas maganda ang Smart Wimax kasi kahit saan pwede mong dalhin.Lalo na pag nationwide na ang coverage.. Hindi tulad ng GLOBE Wimax Dun kung saan lang Ang location address dun k lng pwede…!

  37. mhon says:

    I have a bad experience with smartbro…
    Sila na nagbreach ng contract ako pa tinatakot ng mga lawyer kuno nila… Matakot naman nila ko eh every morning wala ako connection,lagi naman ako nagrereklamo at nag-eemail di naman sila umaaksiyon. Nakatapos at nakatiis na ko ng 1 year contract bayad ko lahat tinuloy ko lang ng 4 months pero ganon parin connection ko paputol-putol lalo na pag talagang kailangan ko. di ko nga bayadan yung 2 months ko makabawi man lang sa panloloko nila sakin sa mga unang months lang sila magaling pero pag kalahating taon ka na at marami ng user sa lugar niyo makikita mo iba na yung IP address na ibinibigay sayo ng server nila tapos paputol-putol na and then sasabihin nila nagmemaintenance sila… Maintenance everyday?Imagine malapit pa kami satower ng smart within the same barangay pa ha. ingat po kayo sa smart dito sa Bulacan 4 na kami nagpaputol ng smart nakakdala maganda lang siguro yan sa Manila. Di po ako employee ng globe or any telco’s ah…pero mas ok talaga PLDT DSL or Globe Wimax… di bumababa speedrate… Sa Globe mababait pa kausap customer service nila di mayayabang tulad ng mga taga SMART…

  38. Leo26 says:

    Totoo mababait tlga yung costumer service ng globe..At mabilis silang omaksyon…Kinabukasan pupunthan k agad ng technician nila..Kso minsan tlga nag kakaprob din ang Globe Wimax..

    Sino na ang nakapag try na dalhin yung GLOBE WIMAX sa ibang lugar..?

    Plss! Answer!

  39. mhon says:

    di ko pa natry ilabas ng bahay globe wimax ko 2 times pa lang ako ngkaproblem sa wimax wala ako internet connection for almost 3 hours pero 2 times plang yun since January. Siguro ng maintenance lang. di tulad ng smart ko dati araw araw sira connection ko. sakit sa ulo….

  40. Leo26 says:

    Kasi yung sa Smart Wimax Pwede dalhin kahit saan eh..Sana ganun din yung Globe Wimax..

  41. mhon says:

    ang alam ko pwede din itong dalin kahit saan basta may signal ng globe… di ko lang natry kasi iniiwan ko dito sa bahay pag nasa work ako ginagamit din kasi ng ate ko naka-wifi kami dito sa bahay… 2 laptop isang desktop ang nghahati…

  42. carlos_m says:

    How come there is already an announcement ad and press release but the details are hidden? Why not full disclosure of area coverage, bandwith cap and other restrictions? this telco, they give advertising a bad name!

  43. techno_green says:

    guys share ko lang.

    i have try globe wi-max. fair enough ang speed nya for 800 plans ata yun. the customer service okay din, magalang. ang problem ko lang is the connection after the typoon basyang. on the typoon day itself may connection pako plus after 2 days pa ng typhoon meron pa din. but on the 3rd day wala hinde nako maka connect. i keep on follow up my problem…we try to solve using the phone. they cant restore my connection, even 3 technicians on site na pumunta sa bahay they cant restore my internet. funny i have neighbor same globe wimax pero may connection sya. I cant really understand sa sya meron ako wala. they said na puno na yun slot to have a connection. i said panu yun slot ko dati. sira daw kaya hinde ako maka connect sa globe itself…the modem and connection sa tower is okay but the connection in the internet is not. so i tell the tech guy what should i do, they tell me wait wait lang makakaroon din yan. i have enough i tell them 10days nako naghihintay walang connection and your telling me to wait lang makakaroon din yan…eto im going to bring back their modem. and im not gonna pay them for the time na i didnt used. hope nakatulong sa inyo.

  44. von says:

    hmm sana makarating kaagad yan dito bicol para maka access agad and ma upgrade lahat ng site para sa magandang reception at signal na uninterrrupted at minimum casualty hehehe :D

  45. jhayzhon says:

    I’m using Smartbro Wimax ngayon, hirap ako sa signal kaya sa labas ng bahay ko nalang nilagay. nasa 2nd floor ako & meron building na katabi. mas gusto ko ang connection nito kaysa sa plugit kasi ang plugit ko ang download speed is less than 50kBps lang and ang ping is 300+ms maya maya meron pang Request timed out.
    ang ping ng Wimax ko is only 94 to 119ms & 2000+ ms kapag nag upload ako pero Ok naman connection walang putol kahit 2 bars lang nakukuha kong signal. download speed is 126.8kBps Max.

    Mas gusto ko din ang WiMax kasi ito na ang mas advance ngayon and sigurado sa susunod magiging 3mbps din ito.

  46. ManilaTalata says:

    Hi 2 all most especially sa SMART hahaha! Well I’m a subscriber of Smart Bro Antenna (tama? hehe) last 2009,for first 3mos.the con.was good afterthen the connection started to hassle us, as they say “once in a bluemoon” ito nangyayari haha so after 1yr the SBro-Ant connection turned worst from 12nn to 7pm limited connection kami, itawag mo man o hindi sa CS wala rin silang nagawa haha so in short naka-1yr. and 4mos. kami sa SMART then switch kami sa GlobeWiMax “kuno” 1st hours of GWiMax sablay na agad parang yung nag-install lang ang pinakitaang gilas eh hehe, tinesting ko sa FB and YTube anak ng ang bagal magload ng page pati ng video sa YTube haha disappointed ako siyempre,..pero no choice eh!

    Sa commercial ang lakas ng Globe sa personal thumbs down! and according to the Globe Sales Agent it’s a free installation we only have to down 500persos anak ng pating pagkatanggap ko ng 1st bill ko sa GWiMax 1,800+ ang babayaran minus the DPayment lalo kong nabadtrip.

    So nag-decide akong ipa-cut 1mo.to be exact tutal naman sa kanila na galing na kapag di ka satisfied sa performance ng kanilang device este GWiMax eh may refund ka pa but when I went to GCenter de fungi nalaman ko na icha-charge ako ng x2 monthly bill for termination kung gusto ko raw ipa-disconnect kasi wala raw akong pinirmahan for 30 day trial!

    T***na nung agent sabi niya anytime, pwede ipa-cut pero wala siyang binanggit bout sa pipirmahan 30day trial nor offering the said paper thou many times siyang tinanong ng kapatid ko about other payments. Sobra na toh at sa sobrang asar ko ipina-terminate ko na, tado yung Globe Sales Agent mas lalong lumaki bill ko H****! bale 3k+ ang binayaran ko.

    Today, first 2 nights pa lang ng SmartBroWiMax ko pero once in a blue moon maging 2 bars yung signal, slow it’s like a plug it, nawawala-wala yung signal kainis pero kung comparison lang naman eh 1 bar lang katapat ng GWiMax na 3 bars na pero slow parin haha! Hindi ako biased because of my experienced I’m just saying the truth.Elib nga ko sa Globe kasi sa tawagan humahataw sa linaw ng linya eh.Nung i-demo samin itong SBWiMax before pickin’ up the kit the day after tomorrow, it shows 3 bars and the demo device was so fast but when I got my own SBWiMax device sakit din pala sa ulo! haha!

    So ito medyo mahal na toh pagpina-terminate hahaha! maibebenta ko bahay namin hahaha!

    Ask ko lang pwede ba ito papalitan ng ibang products nila same plan parin naman. Gamit ko SmartBroWiMax up to 2mbps plan 999 kasi slow eh!

    Sa Manila ko kaya imposibleng mahirapan ako sa connection.

  47. DLight says:

    Ito siguro ang reason kung bakit nakatambay ang van ng Smart sa base station sa labas ng village namin.

    About damn time!!! Sana open for more upgrades ang WiMax kesa 3G (which I believe has already reached its limit).

    Question: Pwede ba matanggal ang speed cap ng Smart WiMax?

  48. jhayzhon says:

    Hey guys I’m just sharing my SmartBro WiMAX experience.

    I’m monitoring my SmartBro WiMAX everyday and put the details or my experience on my blog here http://mysmartbrowimaxdiary.blogspot.com/

    I just noticed that everything is OK on my device.
    Signal: 2 to 3 bars
    Ping(google.com)Idle: 90 to 110ms – no request timed out
    Download speed: 125kBps max – using flashget or torrent
    Ping(google.com): 900 to 1100ms – a little bit request timed out

    but when I browse, most of the time I always get “The Connection has timed out”. It only means that their backbone system/base station/access point/etc.. is really the problem.

  49. tsenre says:

    i’ve been a subscriber of smart canopy type yon sa bulacan year 2005 pa and yon sa quezon city ko naman year 2007 pa. never ako nagkaproblem sa connection laging hataw at naka router pa kami kasi gamit namin ito sa mga site office namin. pa check nyo lang mabuti sa mga subcontractors/technician na nag iinstall ng unit kc minsan minamadali nila pag set-up at pag hindi mo tinutukan at tinitignan habang sineset=up un pc bara bara nila gagawin yon kc marami pa silang ibang iinstall. the more na mainstall the more kita nila from smart. TIP ko lang isave nyo lahat un set-up nila thru print screen as jpeg para masundan nyo at pag alam ng technician na nakakaintindi kayo gagawin nila ng maayos.

  50. henjie says:

    maganda sana,bakit hinde gawin nla pareho sa globe wimax 60peso 24hrs….yung plan useless kasi every night lang ako ginagamit….galing pa ako sa work….

  51. odzk says:

    Walang silbi eto, same crap with their smartbro usb/share it. been using their crappy service for almost 4 months. fortunately for me, may PLDT na sa area ko. Dont be fooled with their ads, puro lang yan marketing, sa totoo dili nila kaya ibigay yan.

  52. edolf says:

    http://www.smartwifi.org.ph/wimax/smart-wimax-coming-soon/#comment-316703

    please check this link, if anyone interested sa wimax. advice lang, cguradohin nyo lang alam nyo pinapasokan nyo. 24months lock-in period kasi.

  53. Hi guys, I went to Smart the other day to supposedly get Smart Plan 999 with canopy kasi marami din akong positive feedback na naririnig from other users including my friend. But unfortunately on HOLD pa daw yon kasi naubusan daw sila ng canopy, totoo kaya yon or baka naman they just pushing the new products para mabenta?

    I ask the customer service, when they’re going to resume the fixed smartbro plan but walang definite answer.

    I was thinking of acquiring itong smart wimax kasi may malapit na Cell Site sa amin. Mga expert ok ba kumuha ng Smart Wimax na may malapit na Cell Site, gusto ko lang ma confirm bago ako mag acquire ng wimax plan?

    Thank you po sa lahat.

    • ROLZ says:

      Depend if the near cell site capable of delivering microwave signal…iba kasi ang canopy compare sa wimax.

  54. taga bukid says:

    malamang maganda lang to sa simula… hintay lang next year kung ano mga comments ng gumagamit nito…

  55. ManilaTalata says:

    @http://www.ez-dollar-income.ws/

    Please do not ever get a SBWimax it will give you headaches and bad days! Based on our experience using this thingy grrr…

    Sa kanila na mismo galing na walang kinalaman ang CELL SITE kapag may SmartBroadband ka kasi through base station talaga ang pagkuha nito ng connection.

    Na try ko na kasi lahat ng SMART at Globe connections except PLDT and Wi-Tribe kasi wala pa sila dito sa taguig ng PLDT.

    We were waiting for canopy pero gaya nga ng sinabi ng iba “not sure” din. Kaya eto tiyaga kami sa Plann 999 na Plug-It Share-It.

    Hope this helps!

  56. @Manila Talata,

    Salamat sa info. Talagang hindi na ako kukuha ng SBwimax dahil sa bad experience mo at ng iba pa.

    Isang friend ko who works at PLDT said, baka daw sa october mag reresume ang canopy type SB.

    Like you, I’ll wait for the canopy type.

    Thanks again..

  57. Mania Talata says:

    @http://www.ez-dollar-income.ws/

    Yup sabi nila by October nga raw pero nang bumalik ang ate ko dun sa center nila wala na raw kasiguraduhan. Hindi ako naninira ng produkto kaya lang consumer tayo dapat maging sigurista hahaha, so everytime na pupunta kami ron palaging may nagsasauli ng Wimax hehehe :)

    Tsk..tsk..tsk!

    Your welcome…

  58. Huwag nyo nang i-try tong walang kwentang produkto ng Smart. Ako nga, sabi ng agent malapit daw sa site nila pero ang bagal ng connection parang dial up! Ang masaklap, 24 months locked in period!

    Kelan pa kaya maaayos ang ganitong klaseng serbisyo ng mga ISP sa Pilipinas? Siguro tatanda nalang tayo, walang kwenta pa rin ang teknolohiyang gawa nila! Kaya tuloy, laging naiiwan ang Pinas!

  59. boy says:

    guys… lahat ng pinag-uusapan nyo ay wireless natural di ganun kaganda ang connection nyan… We are all connected around the world through submarine cable… —————– eto ang the best na gawin… kung makaka-connect ka directly sa SWITCH I assure you ang ganda ng connection nyo at no slow and intermittent… yun nga lang mga taga telco na techkie lang ang gumagawa nun pero di alam ng company nila…. hehehehehe

  60. Manila Talata says:

    @Brando Bandit kung bagong pakabit ka lang eh pwede mo pang isauli yan, yun sa amin kasi pinasauli ko, 1 week lang samin yung SBWimax. Kailangan lang nila ng patunay na nay history ka ng pagtawag sa customer hotline nila para ma-approbahan kang mabawi mo ulit yung ibinayad mo, dusa ka niyan Sir kapag 24mos. mong pagtiyatiyagaan yan. Yung sa amin kasi hindi ko tinantanan ng tawag at reklamo kaya ayun nakapag-refund kami worth 700+. Good luck!

    @Boy: hindi mo rin masabi porke wireless expected mo na, na walang connection? pasakit in short? di dapat ganun nagbabayad ang mga consumer ng sapat at tama tapos yung serbisyo ganun lang?…May demo ang SBWimax bago i-approve na kabitan ang isang consumer. Ang problema may tricks sila.

    Just wanna share this experienced I had in availing SBWimax. Nang may magdemo dito samin ang bilis, pati yung backlit ng device 4 to 5 kaya napahanga kami, kinabukasan ang pag-pick-up namin ng device, after namin makuha yung samin aba isang himala 3 bars na wala “no connection” when we try “google” halos 1 hr. before magflash ng tuluyan yung whole site ng google na kung tutuusin napakadali lang magload ng google..geez! TWO THUMBS DOWN! talaga ko sa SBWimax.

  61. smartbobo says:

    another ooops for smart telco again. before smartbro, there’s a smart wifi. that’s the only “wifi” that you’re literally “wired” inside your house. what they meant by “wifi” by then was the signal was delivered wireless thru canopy and you have to be wired to get connected to the net. (that’s really so dumb about smart).

    and now, they are trying to use the WiMax name, which, if you scrutinize the specification of WiMax, the offered speed of the smart wimax is not even close to the specification. I should say that, this is just another strategy of the wireless provider to get you to buy another of their crappy product.

  62. jeffrey says:

    mangdaraya po ang smartbro. last nov.22 nag apply po ako ng fixed canopy 2mpbs plan. tuesday dumating sila kinabitan nila ako ng 1mbps canopy download speed ko is only 700kbps. setting na ginawa nya sa QoS:

    sustained uplink/downlink rate : 300/700 kbps
    max uplink/downlink burst rate : 1500/1500 kbps

    sa friend ko na maayos ung canopy,

    sustained uplink/downlink rate : 300/1700 <<< kbps
    max uplink/downlink burst rate : 3000/3000 <<< kbps

    nakakakuha po sya ng stable na 1.5mbps download speed po. Mag-ingat po kayo sa smartfraud.

  63. jherwynne says:

    @jeffrey

    ganyan din sa cousin ko..ang ginawa ko tumawag ako sa Tech support, tapos inamin ko na napapasok ko yung Canopy page to access yung status nya, nakalagay dun 1Mbps Aggregate. Yung mga frontliners (tech support agents), lahat ng alibi sasabihin nila para lumabas na ganun talaga ang setup. Ginawa ko…nagbypass ako at naghanap ako ng Operations Manager and napoint out kaagad na hanggang 1Mbps lang yung connection ko. Naghintay pa sila ng set of licenses from Motorola para ma-upgrade to 2Mbps and after 2 weeks, ayun, naayos din!

    Btw, if you want to access the canopy page, just type 169.254.1.1

  64. cloner says:

    @smartbro: i’d rather go dial up than suffer again with your crappy internet service!!!

  65. hehe says:

    niwala naman kau jan sa smart…they are smart liars! but not as smart as my ass! hehe ganun din yun globe. gosh! internet cafe na alng. hehe

  66. Jerome says:

    Share ko lng po yung experience ko sa globe wimax nung first 3 months ko ok po yung speed na nakukuha always yan na 1mbps satistfy npo sana me kaya lng nung marami na pong ng pakabit ng globe wimax d2 sa amin anak ng pati ang laki ng binagsak ng speed dating 1mb ngayon 300kbps pahirapan pa. tip ko lng sa mga ng papakabit ng globe wimax kung sakaling 1mbps ang speed mo wag mong ipag yabang sa mga kapitbahay mo kc pg kumalata yun sigurado papakabit din sila hanggang dumami kayo at pg ngyari yun sigurado sasakit na ang ulo mo kaya isecreto nyo na lng ganyan po kc yung ng yari sken ng hati hati n kme sa speed na binibigay nung globe so i am planing to terminate my connection

  67. Manila Talata says:

    @Jerome buti ka nga in 3mos. maganda ang performance ng GWiMax sa’yo eh sa amin pagkareceive pa lang anak ng parang dial-up as in dial up talaga! Kainis…

    Sa ngayon plug it share it kami mas ok pa toh kesa sa mga wimax geez kainis!

  68. sonny maningas says:

    3g wimax plug it… isang ip lng kasi yan.. parang computer shop isang connection pag may nag youtube taas ng ping lagger… ang sama mag babayad k s kanila kahit ang panget ng connection.. ay wala connection pala mo ang tibay… s smart share it ko kainis nag kukunin ko n pinapirma ako n kahit walng connection babayadan ko pag disconnection ko naman babayaran ko 2yrs wow tibay ang utak nila nagsasabi lng ng 22o

  69. ManilaTalata says:

    @sonny maningas hahah ganyan sila ka SMART!Itong plug-share it na toh may ibinigay na naman problema sa amin. Biruin mo yung bill namin dinodoble nila ang 1k a month namin nagiging 2k?! Bwiset! Ilang beses na kaming nagpupunta sa center nila tapos sasabihin baka raw di pa na-a-update yung bayad namin. Nakaka-stress na toh huh! And speaking of PLDT, meron na sila sa taguig kaya lang balita ko de-metro ang pag gamit ng PLDT internet connection unlike sa Globe and Smart na fix ang bayad heheh!

    Sa pldt kasi, bukod yung bayad ng modem at monthly tapos may tendency pang tumaas depende sa pag gamit mo ng net mo! LOL!

  70. *venom* says:

    hmm…ano daw !!! dapat kayong maging smart !!

  71. Anti Pinas ISP says:

    Kailan pa kya ti2no at magiging honest ang mga bwisit at mapagsamantala na mga ISP d2 sa Pilipinas? Bka balng arw ma-bulok kau at meron pumalit na matinong ISP so kng magka-ganon ano pa ang silbe nyo? magsara nlng. Sa U.S nga sabi ng Mom q parabolic antenna gamit nila ang bilis ng connection nila patas lng s binabyad nila. e2 kasing mga garapal na provider d2 takot maka-pasok ang ganong provider na gamit s U.S tyak mabu2lok sila bigla,, So kng magiging honest nmn sana kau di wla sana problema. Pinaka-mabilis lng kayo sa BILLING dpa nga end of month ajan na ang notice minsan doble pa,,mga SCAMMER,, mga HELPDESK mga tanga,,TECH mga tanga ksi pag-tinanong mo mga kasingalingan mga sinasabi d alm ang mga pinagsa2bi ang layo ng sagot?,,iisa ang sagot parang mga clone…hehehehe! So ganyan ka-bulok ang ISP ng Pinas. ISP q dati bayantel DSL in 4 yrs wla ako naging problema,, sa PLDT DSL ok din, SMART bulok,,GLOBE bulok,,DIGITEL bulok. yan pwede ng firtilizer ang mga yan. ^_^

  72. smart broken says:

    grabe talaga buwaya ng smart na yan. napaka gulang. gusto nila mag renew ka ng another 24 months ng contract pero pagnag loko connection mo at may kelangan ng palitan sa mga parts ng antenna kelangan mo pa magbayad! bago ang contract pero luma ang mga antenna na dapat sila ang mag provide! p.i nyo smart! smart talaga sa sobrang gulang.

  73. jenny cielo says:

    hello po..bakit po ganun ang wimax kasi kakabit lang po sakin. unang araw napakabilis tapos kinabukasan wala ng connection pwede nyo po ba masulusyunan tung problema ko thanks….

  74. SPHIKEE says:

    actually, hirap talaga umasa sa connection ng mga wireless…depende sa location mo at gaano ka kalaya sa cellsite..kahit anong producto pa yan at anong telco pa yan…

  75. Kuya says:

    Does anybody know how good the signal strength is in Cebu city?

  76. Ray says:

    I have a few friends that said that wimax is super slow in some parts of the cebu.

    i’ve been using WiMax for two months, i live in Dasma Cavite, it works just fine for me. most of the time my signal is 3 bars to four bars only, i haven’t seen it in five,

    smartbro canopy 2mbps – smartbro wimax 1mbps only. so yep id rather stay with canopy, minsan pa nga 3mbps connection ko jijijiji (canopy user from makati)

  79. Siklab says:

    Ewan ko ba kung bakit sobrang bagal ng internet sa Pilipinas, kung titingnan mo ang speed sa ibang bansa… sa kanila, ang 5mbps classified as slow connection…

  80. ManilaTalata says:

    @everyone: I suggest if you really want a good internet provider and cheap chose smart but it depends on plans. We have plug-it-share it and 1 yr na kaming di binibigyan ng sakit ng ulo. Don’t purchase wimax and canopy they’re sucks! ;)

  81. valley says:

    pwede kaya ang smart wimax sa laoag city ilocos norte or near laoag?itong wimax kapag walang signal na 3g or 4g ay makakaconnect pa rin ba?

    • Manila Talata says:

      naku girl kami ngang nasa main city hirap sa net connection sa laog pa kaya? Hehe!

      Share ko lang ulit: Yung cousin ko nag-avail ng canopy with 1 month free and hp printer na ibenenta sa ate ko after using 4 times naku bumigay naging dahilan pa ng away nila pero isinangguni na namin sa HP Center at pinalitan nila ng bago gang ngayon maayos namang nagagamit. But what important here is my cousin’s canopy no choice siya 24mos. siyang magdurusa sa connection niya 3rd flr din sila at sa pinakatuktok na nga nakatayo ang canopy pero para lang siyang kbps. No choice na siya naka-kontrata kasi. sa PLDT 1 yr contract lang sa Smart at Globe 2yrs oh san ka pa?

  82. lizzy says:

    ika 3months na namin sa smart wimax, sa una lang pala ang mabilis after a month sobrang bagal na talaga. not been using my smart wimax anymore. waste of money lang talaga.. paying the smart company without getting any services.. ilang times na kami tumatawag sa customers service nila same phrase lang ang sinasabi. check the speed test.. mabuti na lang mabait yung nagrent sa amin ng apartment pinashare muna kami ng connection. guys never get a wimax sa smart.. its really sucks..

  83. dodong says:

    Yeah i was planning to get a wimax connection.after reading the comments, i changed my mind. Are there are any non-wired offerings that do not have data caps?

    ok naman dito samen sa Coron Palawan

  85. Smartbro WIMAX fucking sucks here in Punta Princesa, Cebu City. It’s fucking slow and fucking intermittent! Very disappointing and very frustrating! Fuck you SMART because you’re such a DUMB ASS!!!

  86. rafael says:

  87. fernan Carolino says:

  88. Tom says:

    If you are using canopy it would help kung lalagyan nyo ng password, dahil it works like a Wifi, so malamang pati neighbors nyo nakikishare na sa connection nyo ng free, I suggested this to my friend who are using this and he thank me endlessly for the new discovery, gumanda raw talaga ang signal after making a password for the family.

    • Nan says:

      Hi Tom,
      just ask, I’m using Smart WiMax customer premise equipment (indoor CPE) connected to my dd-wrt router as wifi system, how do you put password? I agree to your observation, can you me?
      Thank you so much!

  89. Aiza says:

    Hello Tom,

    We just applied for Smart Wimax 999 and I’m wondering if it works like a Wifi for the whole house even without router? Or should we need a separate router para magkaroon lang ng Wifi sa buong bahay? Confused kasi kame ng sister ko since dalawa kami with separate laptops gagamit ng net.

    Thanks looking forward for ur response.

  90. nhing fernandez says:

    Lizzy, i agree with you, ilang beses kaming nag rereport at tumatawag sa smart service pero same phrase nga answer nila”check speed”,.
    magaling lang sila mag offer at magbenta pero wala silang concern sa subscriber .
    super bagal ng smartbro, Guys,it`s a waste of money kung kukuha kayo ng service nila., don`t try what i am experienceing right now from them.
    im just a concerned citizen (“,).

  91. Ohlala says:
