Globe WiMax in the Philippines - A Review

Globe WiMax in the Philippines

This is a review of my recently enrolled wireless broadband internet connection. The information provided here is on the basis of our actual unbiased experience from this technology.

WiMAX, meaning Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology that provides wireless transmission of data using a variety of transmission modes, from point-to-multipoint links to portable and fully mobile internet access. The technology provides up to 3 Mbit/s broadband speed without the need for cables. The technology is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard (also called Broadband Wireless Access). The name "WiMAX" was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformity and interoperability of the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL". Wikipedia

This Wimax by Globe Telecoms in the Philippines was recently launched only despite claims by most telecom companies here that much have been done to test the system more than a year ago. Telecom is a 200B business here in the Philippines and it is definitely a race to launch ahead of competition. Globe telecoms was first to launch theirs. Another equally big competitor, Smart Telecoms will launch in the next few months. A new entry, Liberty telecoms - who operated mostly two-way trunked systems was recently acquired by beverage giant San Miguel Corporation - will roll out their WiMax system next year. This friendly competition will only bring about - in the end - more choices for the consumer and eventually cheaper services.

We used to be enrolled in a DSL program bundled to our phone line by another telco provider - Digitel. Our package is 128kbps download / 64kbps upload. Well, what do you expect - it definitely is a far cry - or should be - with the Globe promotion of 1Mbps max data transfers. Digitel - while we have been loyal for the last two years - came up with faster speeds at cheaper packages but failed to upgrade loyal customers. To date, this marketing strategy seem to forget the tenet that loyal customers are harder to find. Thus we gave this Globe wimax a spin - to top this offering, globe offered a money back guarantee for one month if you are not satisfied - great marketing ploy!

The Application for the Program

There was not even the need to call the Globe office nor go personally to apply. The roll-out meant some enterprising companies took on the Globe challenge and went house-to-house for a nearly instant connection - no money involved. Money back guarantee if not satisfied! In two days - it should be just same day or the following day, the modem or CPE (customer premise equipment) was installed together with a small aerial antenna beamed at their cell site which was only 500 meters from our place - no reason to get a poor signal. The service we enrolled in pay a little over 20 USD for 1Mbps - data only or 995.00Php.

The Experience

My children were as excited as I was. This should be lightning fast compared to our DSL! Well, bad news for my children - Globe implemented traffic shaping - or in layman's better understanding like mine - means some services like P2P peer to peer downloads are throttled down to 20% only of maximum capability. Browsing was ok but not as fast as we expected. Streaming those videos from you-tube was not that fast either. In fairness to Globe, my internet phone via Magic Jack was so clear that you would think it was a local US call - with Digitel it was barely usable. There were daily occasional outages in signal and considering the we are very near the wireless source, this does not seem to be acceptable at all. Wimax should cover a better footprint in signal.

My bandwidth monitor notes a steady stream for VOIP. I guess globe will protect and enhance this service, and likely configure their network for VOIP as the CPE can handle a phone line too. We just did not get this option as there were interconnection charges to other phone line. This is expected as telcos fight it out for market share. This will hopefully be resolved in the future.

My Conclusion

For heavy users of VOIP, via Yahoo messenger, skype, vonnage or Magic Jack - you guys are in for a treat. For the younger generation of P2P fanatics - this is not recommended. For regular browsing - this is acceptable. For our streaming video experience - we have had better experience with PLDT. For users of Digitel, anything other than their service is a welcome treat.

In the final analysis, your use and preferences determine the service you want or the program you should enroll. All systems go through some birth pains and all companies have their priorities also. These just need to match our own requirements. For now, and on the basis of our 2 weeks experience - my children says thumbs down unless Globe address the basic issue of traffic shaping, and intermittent disconnections.

Hi! thanks for updating us with the latest technology.

Would like to ask where did Globe & Smart launch this Wimax? i believe they won't able to do it here in GMA coz of their overlapping services? TY

manikis 6 years ago

i read your second review and it look likes this wimax of globe is not as interesting as the new entrant wi-tribe? am i correct?

skipper 6 years ago

i am a wimax user, and im satisfied with my 512 kbps account,

considering its only 795 pesos per month. although your right about the P2P. it can only reach 60KB/s (60kB x 8bits = 480 kbps) which somewhat near to my subscribed bandwidth. wimax is really the way to go.

PS. you can bring with you the CPE if your mobile. hahaha... not like DSL.

Ganun ba?Bago ko lng pinakabit ang WiMax sa amin. I will still have to test it. Nako!Umabot pa ng 15 days bago kami na install. Sana naman bumawi sila sa connection.

kazuno 6 years ago

2nd testing day na ng WIMax dito sa bahay.. 98% ang signal nya dito samin.. ok cya.. napalo ang DL speed nya ng 384-400++ kbps sa umaga w/o antenna.. pg may antenna lalo bumabagal, pag sa gabi umaabot ng 512kbps... sulit na sulit.. pg ok toh, mguupgrade ako ng 1mbps, and bilis pa mgkabit nila yun nga lng may hidden charges.. ngbayad pa ako ng 500php for installation on top of the 750php money back guarantee.. pro mwwaive nmn daw sa next month n bill

Azrael 6 years ago

Can anyone help me? I had my WiMAX installed. It works fine on my desktop. When I transferred the LAN cable to my laptop (Vista isntalled), it won't work anymore. My laptop works fine with Globe Tattoo. Does anyone have the answers? The Globe tech guy directed me to check my LAN settings, hardware, etc. - The arrogant son of a bitch talked as if he wished I just hang up the phone.) Hey, if you know the answers, could you pls e-mail me @ Thanks!

maqh 6 years ago

this globe wimax sucks. akalo ko loser na ung sun broadband ko apparently mas mbgal pa sya at pag may dumadaan sa shop ko nwawalan ng signal. maya't maya nadidisconnect. mas stable pa yung sun broadband ko. nung iababalik ko na sa globe center may charge na 2500 for termination fee. wala pang one week nagamit.

buddy diaz 6 years ago

1st month ok ang speed lagpas 1mbps after a month paputol putol ang signal at ngaun nman 150kbps nlang ang speed ano ba yan globe! dapat 150 nlang ang ibayad sa inyo e 1mbps ang binabayaran ko sa inyo saksakan kau ng gulang niloloko nyo lang mga subscriber nyo mga putang ina nyo!

Chase Claire Gutang 6 years ago

I have Globe..on how they service their customers...I'm a Wimax subscriber for a week, but I already hated it...i subscribed for a 512kbps then they only gave me 112kbps as I monitored it on a speed test. I hate Globe...I hate their services...they are only after of the payment not the quality of service. I will cut-off my subscription, I don't care if they obliged me to pay. Whom are they fooling? am I gonna pay for a dumb service? NO WAY!!!!

Hi Marlon, we didn't get to try Globe WiMAX because of a snag in the installation of the receiver. So I just linked this review of yours in my recent hub about our experiences in installation of broadband service by PLDT myDSL, Smart Bro and Globe WiMAX.

BAGAL ng Globe Wimax.

susan 6 years ago

i think tuloy pa rin sa masamang bisyo ang Globe. Yon bang sa simula bibigyan ka ng magandang signal then tatanggap ng napakaraming subscriber hanggang napakarami ng maghahati-hati sa signal na ibibigay nila kaya pabagal ng pabagal ang internet. Di naman talaga ibinibigay ang bandwidth na binbayaran natin. Laging alibi nila may maintenance problem.Ang gulang!

seed sisam 6 years ago

3 days nag nakakabit ang WiMAX dito sa bahay, fastest DL connection ko abot ng 520kbps, considering 1Mbps ang subscription ko, mahina, 50% lang nakukuha ko, kalahati din ba bayad ko dapat? kaso swapang ata globe. Tumawag na ako sa tech support "wait 24 hours". 48 hours na po ganun pa rin ang speed. 100% palagi ang signal. pero ung DL ganun pa rin. ung sister ko naka smart bro, mas mataas pa DL nya dun sa subscribed speed nila, mali ata ang napili kong Internet Provider. Ok naman kung chat lang at surf, kaso work ko online teaching, ung video at sound quality ko choppy at lag, hindi po real time.

Give us what we are paying for, and please clear out ng globe ung capping issues nila sa bandwidth na dapat nakukuha ng subscriber... una lang ata ok ang serbisyo tapos perwisyo na.

Globe doesn't know how to build and operate a WiMax network, I have had the service now since it started and it absolutely sucks the basic problem is that there is too much fluctuation in the service and this is all related to lack of capacity to support the number of subscribers that they have signed up. I have built plenty of networks around the world and when its designed correctly it works great, they must think that people are fools and doesn't understand what they are doing! So why do I still use the service? Well, I don't really have a choice where I am if I did I would leave them in a heartbeat!

Globe wimax is location dependent so before subscribing to the any Wimax plan it would be better to know if your area is within the WImax radius. Try this review below.

Alam nyo dapat ni reregulate ng NTC yang mga advertisement ng mga Telco company, Tulad ng Globe they are claiming na WiMaX ang service nila, pero ang totoo di namana pala. Niloloko lang naman nila tayo. did you know that when you say WiMax it is capable up to 4G signal kaya nga sa meaning palang ng WiMax "last mile wireless broadband access" NTC hoy gising

the good thing about US and even Singapore is that, uber careful and responsive yung business about customer concerns!

sana wag nating gawing dahilan na third world tayu kaya ganyan! maging progresibo sana tayo sa isip, salita at gawa! wala ngang panatang makabayan ang US at Singapore pero progresibo sila! oh well, bansa natin ito! kung ano man ito ngayon, dahil din ito sa atin! ginusto natin maging ganito eh! silence may mean yes in this case!

Oh yeah. I opted to use Globe WIMAX because I thought it will be faster than the connection of a SMART BRO. But gee, I was very wrong. This Globe WIMAX is pain in the ass.

jeineken 6 years ago

If I were to compare the SMART BRO and the GLOBE WIMAX, I don't even have a problem about the SMART BRO but not this GLOBE WIMAX. If I were you guys, don't hesitate to go for GLOBE. It really sucks!

bianne 6 years ago

really globe sucks...i've been calling them for almost two weeks and nothing happens..they just told me to wait for the tech to come to my place but they never came..for those who are planning to use globe..think again..for the first two weeks its really good but after that it's a pain in the ass...

Money-back guarantee

kung hindi pa kayo lagpas 1 month balik nyo na sa globe yan... hehehehee

for my own opinion ok lng nman ung wimax dipende lng talaga sa area and location ng isang tao

jedinudge 6 years ago

This week Globe Wi-Max will be installing in our area here in Cainta...I don't have any idea of the location of their base station...because the closer your wi-max radio to the base, the higher the QOS (Quality of Service)...while Wi-Max is a better alternative to Wi-Fi and MMDS technology, it will still depend on the bandwidth allocated and the RSS of the radio...

Thank you very much for this post, this helped a lot...

The good thing is, Globe offered a 'money-back' guarantee if service is not good...

Edgar Orino 6 years ago

I have all 3: Smart Bro (plan 999), Globe Wimax (plan 995) and Sun Wireless Broadband (plan 799). Comparing them in terms of speed, Smart Bro stands-out as compared to the two. Globe is average while Sun's speed is so unacceptable when in fact they advertise theirs as having speeds up to 1Mbps. What a waste of money! If you're planning to have yours, go for Smart Bro instead!

Bangobing 6 years ago

Globe Wimax? Its a big NO for me!!

their services, both wired and wireless(horrifyingly terrible-undercribable), are not consumer friendly. the connection is as slow as the slowest snail you could ever find and keeps on cutting off. i just had this 1mbps plan and its been a month or so and i'm so frustrated, i can even describe's like i want to poke their faces to let them know how bad their wimax is. i don't recommend this to anyone and don't you even try with the 1month guarantee, its even a spam. Globe is a faker, don't be fooled folks.

Belle 6 years ago

Globe's customer service sucks. I've been calling them every other 2 days for follow ups for my internet installation (wifi your home) assuring me that they'll install it within 10 business days. now its been a month! They never contacted me and their CSRs are unreliable. After calling every 2 days for a month they told me it's CANCELLED!! Told me stuff about the port and stuff that i barely know about. They offered me another service which is wimax and now im researching about it. reading all reviews makes me even more frustrated with globe. Globe, Sun and Smart are all crap. I should have applied to PLDT instead since im a heavy user of skype. tsk tsk.. THUMBS DOWN!

Nagpakabit ako ng WIMAX 3 weeks ago. Hanggang ngayon paputol putol parin ang connection. Maraming reference number at job order number na ang na generate ng globe tech support. 2x nang pumunta ang technician nila sa bahay pero ang laging findings ay slow browsing. Kapag mag infinite ping sa yahoo or base station (ie. ping -t) mas maraming request time out kesa reply.... walang kwenta kapag magreklamo ka puro sasabihin sayo kindly monitor na lang po ang connection nakakasawa kaya ito ipapaputol ko na lang bwisit yang globe WIMAX na yan

Miss Loyalty

I have been a globe user for over 10 years now, except for the time when I lost my phone and chose to go dark for a quiet some time. I’m not a frequent phone user. I seldom text and I almost never call. I’m always amused seeing people’s faces when I tell them I only spend roughly Php 30.00 a month on prepaid. On my early user’s stage, I used to buy prepaid cards for Php 300.00 and it lasts me 2 months with something like Php 50.00 the company takes when the card expires.

Shopping for ISP –Globe, Sun, Smart Prepaid

I also am a loyal Ericsson candy bar user. My first was the 3-liner model up until it gave up on me. Then a hand me down Nokia 5110 – the one I lost. When I got back to the work force, the Nokia 1100 was cheap and I fell in love with the flashlight feature. I think it was genius! It was early on in my career and I couldn’t afford the now merged Sony-Ericsson. When I finally decided to have an internet connection and because coming to a hotspot become more and more of a hassle, I wanted to be with Globe still. Mobility, ease of use and harmony were main considerations. I couldn’t bear the thought of looking at Smartbro antenna on my rooftop. It is that ugly for me. By this time, the Globe Tattoo was available and would have been the first choice… that is if you are near a tower and within grid lines. But hardware cost was a big turn off.

So I decided to put the money towards buying a new phone with Tattoo capabilities and more. So I had the very slim Sony-Ericson T700. Connection configuration was very easy really. Unfortunately, after almost using up a Globe prepaid, one tech support finally said that they do not have the settings for my phone model. So I tried Sun Cellular but I was not getting a 3G signal in the least. Getting Smart was the answer. It was fast, and I was satisfied.

Movement – Smartbro, PLDT, Globe 3G, Globe WiMax

For some reason I had to move back home in a hacienda far far away. My sisters house that’s right beside us is now rented with the tenant’s still an eyesore Smartbro antenna. I was out of range for PLDT and the Globe’s HSDPA/3G signal keeps popping on my phone. I got Globe 3G. I have the external antenna for maximum signal strength. I loved it. I can also take my modem to the city central where I work and be online even though our local server is down. When Globe WiMax was offered, I advised a friend to go for it. With assured speed, it is better than just a possibility of getting up to 2Mbps. We were pretty and happy until we can’t. But I know for sure they can always get away with “not an error free” disclaimer.


I used to be a technical support staff for a BPO that caters to US-Based ISP’s. While it doesn’t make me an authority on the topic, I think I have a pretty good idea how things are -- from a technical support kind of way to a customer’s service representative to a consumer.

With my 3G, I am up to speed only from 11PM the previous day to 5PM the next day. The difficult hours are between 5PM and 12MN. At any time, the connection fluctuates. My modem switches signals from WCDMA to HSDPA. On my screen it translates into “Page cannot be displayed”, “DNS error”, and all other errors associated with Connection no Browse. Connection no Browse is the most common ISP provider issue and with my background, I did everything I possibly could to resolve the issue. Calling the technical support was a major disappointment. I was ready to go through the same or more processes I just did but this time with their assistance. I was polite and observant. On the many times I called in, the only troubleshooting was to turn everything off and turn everything back on. It doesn’t solve my problem. (Although in some technically challenged customers it might work.) The advice from here on may vary but are still the same “Wait for 24 to 48 hours”, “network problem”, and “we’ll send a technician.” Most of the time it is just irritatingly funny. I have also moved my external antenna for increased polarization and it helped a bit.

Correct me if am wrong

3G signal is shared by the number of users in the area at any given time. It is also dependent on the number of cell sites on a grid. It doesn’t help when one is living in rural areas where cell sites are few and far between. Whether one lives in the rural or urban area, everyone is billed the same. That same amount is close to the amount paid by US subscribers to their ISP’s and betcha they get a whole lot more in speed, rebates and rerates.

Small voice

The number of internet subscribers in our country might small but it is the slowly growing need that telecoms are happy to oblige. This might be a minority and will be thwarted by our other major major issues like poverty alleviation, education, curbing corruption, etc. In the coming elections, I will vote for the one who will strengthen consumer protection or at least impose it. I’m sure somewhere in the legal system we already have those. Can blame me really coz I still believe.

My Resolve

I am moving to Sun Cellular whether it be 3G or WiMax as soon as they offer it in my area. I know from blogs and forums about their good and bad service. But what the heck, at least I’ll be paying much less for the same crappy service. And maybe my cellular phones will soon follow.

Ang bagal nitong globe wimax beware po sa inyong lahat na magpapakabit... Ask ko lng meron na ba d2 na hindi nagbayad ng subscription? What will happen pag di ko to binayaran makukulong ba ako? May isasampa ba silang kaso sa akin?

Very poor unternet connection. Service provider says that they are upgrading their facilities.

Magrereklamo nako sa Imbestigador at sa NTC.

every day ako tumatawag.

di ko naman nagagamit ang service nila tapos papadalahan na ako agad ng bill. parang 1year na nila ina-upgrade ang facilities nila pero wala pa ding nangyayari.

Di ko babayaran ang bill ko hanggat di ko nakukuha nag 1MBPS subscription speed ko.

Wag nyo iwawala yung service contract nyo (kulay blue na papel). Pwede natin idemanda yang Globe na yan.

We're paying Php 795 for nothing. At first, I've expected much to that WiMax but after a while, that broadband goes slow or worse, it wouldn't let me have Internet Access at all even if we have a good signal, thus, it pisses me off.

i just moved up my pldt plan from 512(999 plan) kbps to 719 (1299 plan) kbps. I decided to upgrade because I didn't satisfy about the speed.It took me 8 seconds or more before the page is fully complete. It sometimes happens that the page which I use to open appeared to be denied or page can't be displayed. I'm fed up about their service. I was thinking about switching my plan to globe wi-max. As the advertisement says, this is the fastest broadband without congestion. Before deciding, I tried to search some reviews about their service and I'm so thankful about what I found out. After reading your review and some of the comments below, it worries me to subscribe. To estimate, people who said they said had satisfied their service were only 3% and the unsatisfied were 97% percent. Thanks so much. I'll never subscribe to globe- poor service. Now, I hate globe.

on my 1st day meron na problema agad ung tech palang nahirapan na. hindi nya makuha ung speed na 1mbps. sa kakaalign nya ng antenna nag karoon kmi ng 1mbps. tuwang tuwa ung tech. yon natapos na ung installation nya. after 1 hr nag speed test ako wala na 0.12mbps na hanggang kinabukasan. 1mbps ung package ko. tawag ako ng tawag sabi nila increase daw ung speed ko after validating my account. sa awa ng diyos ganun parin. tumawag ako ulit imonitor daw ng 24-48 hrs pero walan improvement intermittent pa ung signal.baka mamaya bigyan nila ako ng bill isasampal ko sa magdedeliver ng bill kung taga globe yon.hindi ko pa napapakinabangan service nila. gago ang globe talaga.

Most plans that advertise something like 512 or 1 Mbps CAN NOT and will never be able to deliver that speed at sustained basis, most of them opt for "Up to ___Kbps" that is the nature of the service we get as we share this with the rest of the subscribers. If you need 512 you should enroll in a 1Mbps service, at least.

hindi rin sa location. ang lakas ng signal ko kung minsan.kung minsan nawawala. lumalakas ung signal after mong tumawag sa kanila at pinagalitan mo sila. bwisit talaga ung globe talaga.paulit ulit nalang. ang bobo ng mga customer service nila hindi sila marunong mag raise ng problema sa upper management para magawan ng corrective action.

I am pretty satisfied with the Globe WiMAX here in our province (Masbate)... It's been two months since nagpakabit kami and wala namang problema...

I am actually living now in Cebu but I always spend my vacation here in our province... Smartbro ang gamit ko sa Cebu for 3years now and I haven't encountered any problem with Smartbro... But since walang smartbro dito sa province namin, Globe WiMax na lang...

Okey na man siya except for video streaming... It is mabagal talaga... Though not that bagal but compared to smartbro, sobrang bagal nya...

My sis is an online game freak, wala siyang prob sa connection... Yung bro ko naman is a social network fanatic, wala din siyang prob... Ako lang ang my prob sa GLobe WiMax kasi ang bagal nyang magdownload ng vids... haaayysss...

But other than that, okey lang naman siya... I mean, I am in the province and it is better than nothing, right???

hehehehe.... Smartbro 10 out of 10... Globe WiMax 7 out of 10...

Per experience lang po... :)

OOpppsss... They are both in 512kbps plan... :)

I tried these internet providers; sun, globe tattoo, wi-tribe and I kbps globe wimax. First day it was okay, after that talo pa ang dial up sa tagal. mag-open lang ako ng 1 site, it will took more more than 10 mins. I really don't understand, nakikita ko naman na may apat na signal light pero sobrang bagal. ang sarap ibato! nakakasawa ng tumawag sa CSR nila na wala ng ginawa kundi mag-sorry.

waaa..dami pla problema sa globe wimax.

2nd day plang ngayon ng wimax ko kaya observe ko muna.

They're saying na pag malakas ang signal ng Globe mabilis din connection ng globe wimax. Pero nung unang kabit plang mdyo ngka problma na. di makasagap ng mabuti yung antenna nila, di makuha yung full strength signal, pero yung globe tatoo ko naman, full signal.

Pano nangyari yun?

SPUD 6 years ago

Dami pala kawawa dito. Well it really does depend on the location, and one has to know that just because your getting 100% signal strength doesn't mean your getting 100% good signal quality, ganyan kasi pag wireless. Next time we should research before subscribing to your chosen or available ISP. We should never take those telecom ads for granted.

Jov 5 years ago

Maganda lang ang WiMax sa simula (first month yung free). 1mbps ang pinakabit ko. First Month maganda kasi umabot pa ng 150+kbps ang speed. The following month wala na. Mabilis na ang 50kbps. Nag email ako sa hotline nila ang reply naman is kasali daw ako sa User Fair Policy which is not fair. Anu silbi ng Unlimited connection kung merong limitation.

DreamCatcherRN 5 years ago

I'm totally pissed off my globe wimax!!! If I had read this 3 months ago, hindi ko na sina pinaputol ang sky broadband ko instead nag upgrade na lang ako. First month lang po maganda ang connection sa wimax, after that yung 1 mpbs naging 0.33 mbps na lang. What sucks more is hindi ka na talaga makapagbrowse ng maayos. Then, di ka pa kakausapin ng maayos ng CSR nila. Kesyo sorry for the inconvenience then offline. Grrrr!!! Nakakahighblood talaga!

If i were you people, best subscribe to smartbro plan 999. Connection is awesome plus the downstreams are fast. I,m using the service for almost 3 years now. Eventhough my location is approx. 3 km from the cellsite, i still had the best connection. Thus, I'm getting the stuff that i've paid for.

There was a time that i had downsteam of 1mbps considering that i've ony had 700+kbps subscription. I doesn't block any ports. internet surfing and download freedom is at its best. The only thing about this thing is that it doesn't support port forwarding. Well it doesn't matter anyway, who needs it if your having Downstream of speed ranging from 350-1mbps!!!! It sounds great! Isn't it?

I had a wired Globe connection before. For 2 months, ang saya! Then I had to move to another address. Unfortunately, wala daw silang wired connection sa bagong address ko. So I tried WIMAX. Grabe! Parang back to 1990! Same problems as you guys are having: intermittent signals, can't access some sites, HASSLE! Globe should be made aware of this. Kung ang Smartbro maayos, bakit ang WIMAX hinde? INCOMPETENCE ito ng GLOBE!

boy-youjizz 5 years ago

I had Globe Wimax for almost one month now. So far, the only problem I had was the download speed of around 400-500 kbps well in fact I signed up for 1Mbps. I went through their chat support and got everything fixed up. Per knowledge since I use to work for Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon you should be getting at least 60% of the speed you signed up or else you could sue them and pay for liabilities. So far, I get as high as 1.02Mbps download speed and as low as 600kbps download speed, which is 60% of the speed. My location is at Civil Service, Batasan Hills, QC. Last week was a gloomy rainy week but I still get my speed not less than 600kbps. There are times that there is an outage but comes back after 15min. Surfing and browsing is satisfying. Viewing youtube and pornsites is ok. However, I have not yet tried the P2P thing. I'll try it later via Limewire. For people ranting about the service, make it more professional and educated. It's ugly and disheartening to read rubbish being posted. I even don't know your location, what you do for internet, how often you download, what sites are you viewing - basically what you do for internet use to educate other people who are searching for the best ISP they want to sign up. Posting P.I. is not helpful at all. It only show how ignorant, uneducated, and unchristian you are.

My internet usage preference should not be the case. It's just an example that my wimax works for me the best it can. What about saying the P.I word? Does that educate people in choosing what's best for them in terms of internet connection? It doesn't really help at all. Is it educational? Try telling that to your mom instead. Research and study more about internet technology para hindi kayo magmukhang tanga.

Globe Broadband for your Home (WiMAX)

How is Fair Use applied to this product?

The Globe @Home broadband product is designed to provide a steady browsing experience at the convenience of your home. This allows you to enjoy consistently fast and reliable broadband service when you use it. This product may be used for data streaming and heavier file downloads. However, uncommonly high file downloads (users of peer to peer/torrent applications) or commercial usage may result to a slow browsing experience.

Similar to the nomadic sticks, our fair use policy applies to products and services as well as special offers or promotions, providing data usage for free or at rates lower than standard rates, or unlimited access to data usage.

The Globe @Home broadband service currently provides the following peak volume capacity depending on your plan:

For WiMAX Prepaid: 1GB per account per day

For WiMAX Postpaid 512kbps: 16GB-20GB per account per month

For WiMAX Postpaid 1mbps: 21GB-25GB per account per month

If a customer exceeds the peak capacity, the following may be experienced:

For WiMax Prepaid: service will be temporarily unavailable until end of day and will resume the following day.

For WiMax Postpaid: slow browsing speed within the month.

Am I likely to be affected by the Fair Use Policy?

If you don't use file sharing software or download large files from the internet it is unlikely that you will ever be affected by this policy. Media streaming and downloading of torrents contribute to your use of bandwidth capacity and if left permanently on, may cause you to be in breach of this policy.

What will happen if my usage requirement is high?

To fully enjoy Globe @Home broadband services, make a quick assessment of your usage. If it is more than the plan you subscribed for, it would be best to upgrade your plan to suit your usage requirement and lifestyle.

Occasional high bandwidth usage is unlikely a cause for concern. However, regular peak bandwidth usage may require you to upgrade your plan to optimize use of the product.

***The aforementioned thresholds are subject to change without prior notice.

Thank you for subscribing to Globe broadband services.

i've tried smartbro and globe wimax and both suck! maganda ang connection pag una kaso they accept so many subscribers and eventually mago-overload towers nila so bumabagal or totally nawawala signal, especially sa mga medyo malalayo na tulad ko.

sa 1st 2 months na ginamit ko binayaran ko yung bills

the other next month sira na laptop ko kaya hindi ko na sya ginagamit pero may babayaran pa daw akong 290 every month kahit wala namang ginamit..

i aksed them to permanenlty terminate it pero kailangan daw ung tao kung kanino nakapangalan.

pagbalik namin uli my babayaran pa daw kami na 8,200plus dahil breach of contract kasi dapat daw taposin namin ung 1 year

before nagpaconnect kami sabi naman ng nagconnect ay kahit anong oras pwede kaming umayaw kung ayaw na namin..

ngayon daw ang other option ay magbayad kami ng 3500+1500 for reactivation and plus 500plus para sa taong magkokonect..bali 4.500 for reactivation

na dapat taposin namin hanggang october..

I'm a Wimax subscriber for more than a year now. The first time I encountered Internet issue was last July 22. The issue is still unresoved until now August 15.

Their CSRs don't know squat about internet service. One even stole my MAC and Device ID for his own use. Their field techs don't even bother to check if the issue has been resolved. They kept closing the ticket as no trouble found so that Globe will recreate a job order and they do get paid per job. These field techs are subcontractors.

It's also not the signal. they've checked and rechecked already. It's just slow because that's how Globe configured the connections at the base to squeeze all subscribers in a few cards.

To new subscribers, DO NOT GET ANY GLOBE DSL OR WIMAX SERVICE. It's unsecure, slow, and bad customer service. Trust me, I'm still in Globe hell now.

Kung ako sa inyo, wag na ninyong subukan magpakabit ng globe wimax. i am recommending you tu use broadband in usb stick like tattoo or smart bro. wag lang ung putanginang wimax na yan. lagi na lang walang connection. pag kumonek, sobrang bagal pa. putangina talaga. gago. palibhasa kase sa mga internet service provider dito sa pilipinas mga kurakot. pangako nila 1mbps tapos 50 kbps lang ung pinakamabilis sa gusto kasi nila mas mahal na plan ung kuhanin natin para mas mabilis pero makukuha naman kung di nila tayo gagaguhin. putangina tarantado!!! trust me. wag kayong mag-aaksaya ng pera nyo para sa wimax.

Ganito kasi ang nanyayari sa mga wireless ISP's. Magssetup sila ng antenna or transmitter para lang macover ng service nila ang isang area. tama may service pero hindi nila iniisip kung gano karami ang pwedeng magsubscribe. Example, nag set up ako ng transceiver sa isang lugar na ang kaya lang bgyan ng service ay 100 subscriber lamang, sa una siyempre magiging maganda ang service nila pero pag lumagpas na sa 100 ang subscriber ko dun na nagkakaron ng problema. Ito namang mga wireless ISP hindi gagawan ng solusyon kasi pera lang iniisip nila, magagawan nila yan ng solution per mtgal pa. para lang yan case ng smart dati. naglabas sila ng wireless broadband noon pero ang panget ng service. After 1 1/2 year inayos nila and they renamed it to what today is "smartbro" at mejo ok naman na service nila ngayon.

Eto pa problema, sa ibang bansa kinokonsider nila ang geagraphic characteristic ng isang area kaya meron silang accurate na data kung hanggang saan lang tlga pwede mag subscribe. Dito wala, ang alam lang nila ay yung measurement ng radius at diameter mula sa tower nila at kadalasan tanchahan lang.

Ang smart at globe ay walang sariling dispatch team, kumakaausap lang sila ng mga contractors para sa installation ng service nila at ang knowledge ng mga contractors na to ay ay isuficcient, pag nagpapainstall kyo ng service pakinggan nyo ang usapan nila. maririnig niyo na ganito sila mag usap: pare san ba natin ihaharap to? diba mas malapit dun yung tower na isa, dun na lang natin iharap. Parang ganyan ang usapan nila though ang proper dun is dapat bawat tower meron tlgang alloted na cover kahit saan pa yan. Kapag alanganin hindi dapat lagyan.

Probelam pa ulit. Hindi tlga regulated ng NTC ang kalidad at kapabilidad ng mga telecom na yan. Ang alam lang nila basta meron sila ng ganitong technology at hindi magcconflict sa iba pwede na nila ibenta. Sa US hindi pwede yan, (nakalimutan ko kung ano tawag sa NTC nila eh ) basta yung NTC nila pinag aaralan din nila kung kaya nga ng telecom na magbigay ng maayos na service ang isang company, kapag hinde, hindi nila papayagan or bago sila payagan may mga bagay muna sila na dapat macomply.

Probelma pa ulit. Ang mga technical support nila ay wala din talagang magagawa kaya wag din kayo magalit sa kanila. Oo may training sila baga naging tech support pero kulang tlga yun. Yung iba dun wala talagang alam sa computer. Ang turo lang sa kanila ay parang question and answer lang at di na nila kayang lumagpas dun. Kahit maghanap ka pa ng sipervisor wal din maitutulong yun kasi pare-pareho lang sila. Example: tumawag ako minsan sa globe dahil hindi ko maconnect yung blackberry device ko, kung anu ano pingwa nila sakin at wala naman nangyari. Sa huli ako lang din nakalutas ng problema ko though sa network nila yung hassle. Ang problema dun ay yung sim card ko ay nabili ko bago pa nagka blackberry. kaya kelangan ko pa restart cp ko, lgyan ng ibang sim, restart ulit at ibalik yung sim ko tlga. Nasa part nila tlga ang solution kung iuupdate nila ang service database ng number ko pero hindi nila magawa. Ganyan ang mga tech support, anjan lng para sagutin tawag mo, tulngan ka sa kung ano lang alam nila pero wala silang pkialam kung matulungan ka basta matapos lang yung pakikipag-usap nila sayo.

Eto pa! ang alam lang ng mga installation dispatch nila ay yung lakas lang ng signal. Sa totoo lang walang kwenta kahit sagad ang signal mo dahil meron pang "QOS" na tinatawag. Ganito lang ang logic nyan. Isipin nanonood ka ng TV, syempre pag malapit ka sa tv kita mo pinapanood mo, pag malayo ka mejo hindi na or maliit na yung screen. Pano kung malapit nga ko sa TV ko pero mejo nasa bandang gilid ako, ngayon sino ang mas mgnda ang view? yung mejo malayo ba na nasa harap ng TV oh ako na katabi lng ng tv pero halos sulok na lang nakikita ko. yan ang logic nyan at hindi din alam ng dispatch nila yan. Tamang malakas ang signal mo pero hindi naman stable.

Eto ang pinaka matinding problema. Alam nila ang lahat ng mga problema ng service nila pero hindi nila inaaksyonan or hindi inaaksyonan agad. Iniisip kasi nila gastos lang. Pero sana kung hindi nila kaya magbigay ng magandang service wag na lang nila ibigay kasi parang lumalabas eh nanloloko sila ng tao para kumita. :D

(pasensiya na kung mejo magulo comment ko, hindi kasi tlga ako sanay magsulat. Kaya ko lang magpaliwanag :D)

As a fellow Globe wimax user I would just like to say that their service and their broadband is the worst I have ever experienced!!

It can now take me 10 attempts to load a webpage from sites like HP due to latency problems and other issues - when the modem is actually connected that is!

I am totally unhappy with the service but there is no alternative where I live so I guess they have no need to improve!!!!

If you don't have to; don't buy globe!!!

my advice to those who has a plan to have a internet connection, globewimax broadband ,smart broadband, sun broadband or any wireless and wired (DSL)internet connection. First, tanungin nyo po muna ang standard reading. Kung hindi papasa wag na kayong magpapakabit. Second, sundin po ang kontrata na napagkasunduan para di makagulo sa network. Na Bawal po ilipat ang mga modem sa ibang lokasyon o ibang bayan without notifying ung internet provider, na bawal kabitan ng router at iba pa.

Wimax limits your downloads and for web browsing, it is not even close to its speed (1mbps).Mas sulit pa siguro yung 512mbps na plan ng globe...umaabot ng 300plus mbps for downloads and web browsing atleast 60percent of its speed gumagana..parang d naman aabot ng 500mbps yung 1mbps na plan ng globe wimax less than 50% lang ng speed ang nagagamit ng plan 1mbps... compared to sun wireless broadband 2mbps kahit usb lang at mahina signal mabilis sa network gaming at steady download.especially sa madaling araw.d nadidisconnect sa G-Arena at smooth sa you tube and sun wireless broadband.mas mura pa 2mbps 650 lang add on with any sun cellphone plan... :)

good day everyone... based on our experience lahat po ng ISP ay may bandwidth limit kaya po its around 750mb to 1000mb per day kaya po 3wks maganda ang service pero paglumagpas na sa bandwidth limit nila magslow na ang net connection ninyo kahit 100percent signal strength pa pag naubos ang bandwidth madisconnect ang net connection ninyo kaya ang magandang gawin ay try ninyo po maghanap ng programs na maibudget ang bandwidth ninyo para wlang slow connection... example 4 us gumagamit kami ng plan na katulad sa inyo pero di kami napuputulan ng net connection dahil binbudget po namin ang bandwidth namin for one month

I am a Wimax user and I am satisfied with my 512kbps and it's only P799 per month. It's fast and really, i am satisfied. Yung sinasabi ng iba na mabagal ang 512kbps at mabilis ung 1mbps, depende lang yun kung saan ka na lugar. if open space mabilis talaga but if nasa close space ka kahit 30 mbps ka pa, mabagal talaga.

Sobrang disappointed ako sa Globe Wimax. More than a week na akong nag re reklamo sa intermittent connection nila pero wla pa ring nangyayari. 2 times na pumunta dito yung technician, wla ring naayos dahil cell site daw me problema. Tapos nang naggagalaite na ako sa galit, bigla na lang ako sinabihan na may nationwide na repair or upgrading something? daw na ginagawa sila. Bakit di nila sinabi ito the first time na nag complain ako? Sabi ng call center agent nila that time lang daw sila sinabihan tungkol sa nationwide ek-ek nila. Hay, halata namang alibi lang. Ang masakit pa magbabayad daw ako ng 5Thou pag pinaputol ko ang subscription ko. Ano na ito lokohan?

From Lapu-lapu City, Cebu here. Nag subscribe din ako 1 MBps sa Globe Wimax na yan. 3 months ko lang nagagamit ng maayos tapos the 4th month paputol-putol at mahina na signal.

Nag ka problema pa sa singilan on 1st month kasi di neremit ng contractor yung 1200 na unang bayad, sinisingil ulit kami ng Globe. Buti nireklamo ni ismi sa Globe na bayad na yung una tsaka next bill 1200 na lang.

Umabot pa ng halos 1 month na follow-up sa call and at the same time going sa Globe Ayala bago na settle.

It's just a load of crap! Skype ko napuputol lagi, at nagco call back.. nakakabwesit! Sana nag PLDT na lang ako. I will cut the Globe Wimax bullshit service!

Their subcon who are supposed to visit onsite are not even responsive. Their subcon is VISATECH Integrated Corporation. I signed for 2MBPS but speedtest is only 0.17MPBS since the very beginnning.

ako ang plan ko 1Mbps + landline, now wala ako landline, at ang speed ko na dapat eh 1Mbps, aba 32kbps-97kbps normally mga 76kbps which is super layo sa binabayaran ko na dapat eh 1Mbps! disconnected din ang line ko. dagdag ng dagdag sila ng subscriber di naman sila nagdadagdag ng bandwidth sa mga base station nila! kung pede lang kau sumpain eh sinumpa ko na kau! about sau greenhorn, babagal din yan maniwala ka! ako nga eh 1yr mahigit ok service nila tapos nung pinapaextend ako ng 2yrs contract di ko tinanggap, syempre ayaw ko ung nakalagay sa contract eh, parang agrabyado ako, aba at eto nag umpisa na ang kalokohan nila sa internet ko kasama landline.

super nakakainis, palaging wlang connection and once nakaka conect nadidisconnect. pag nkipag chat sa customer service palagi na lang may service issue. I bundled my internet with phone and I was just able to use my land line for just a month then di ko na nagamit.

Pangit talaga ang service ng globe...maganda lang sa umpisa....itry ko na lang ang PLDT baka sakali di na ako mapapahiya sa kachat ko. Di na putol putol ang pag uusap namin. Sobrang tagal bago makaconnect uli sa globe kahit regular load na ang gamit ko, 15 pesos per hour.

Just a small tip. If you do not want to get a very slow 0.17mbps or lower internet connection with Globe Wimax. Never unplug your modem upon installation. It works in our place. One time we did a speed test and it even came to whopping 2mbps to think that my plan is only 1mbps. But if however you accidentally unplugged your modem then that is where the ultimate hassle comes in. But you can fix this. A Globe technician came to our house and recommended me these simple steps.

1.)Open your modem homepage by typing this to your browser's address bar:

2.)Enter username and password. (username: user ; password: user or 0SlO051O)

3.) If you accessed it go to the wimax tab.

4.) Check your BSID. If your BSID looks like this : 00:00:1B:0C:0C:01 then you really have a problem. your BSID should end with a 00 not with a 01.

5.) Press disconnect and connect simultaneously by doing this several times you may obtain the 00 digit in your BSID.

Warning: ever unplug your modem after this, although there are times where it'll return to 01 you may just repeat the cycle again.

Thats how I fix my internet connection. Actually in our place the Globe customer service is really decent and a technician will come on the day they promised.
