  1. guys, i need your experties...

    i bought an ipad 3 with 4g (daw)/LTE (daw)

    i want to know which works best in my new ipad.. yung kahit saan ako sa pilipinas pumunta, maganda talaga ang signal, parati may 3g, mabilis din ang surf and download... and sana wala pong bias sa sagot ninyo.. thanks! :D

    and guys, kung may difference po ang prepaid sa postpaid, paki sabi na rin para malaman ko at ibang tao yung mga bagay bagay.. salamat ulit! :D

    here is my cents:

    Prepaid ng Globe = not good (even their UNLI is capped, sometimes speed is controlled priority to the postpaid)
    Postpaid ng Globe = Good (unli has capped as well...)

    Prepaid ng SMART = Good (no capping)
    Postpaid ng SMART = Good (no capping)

    LTE as of now SMART palang mayroon
    4G HSDPA = SMART is better
    4G HSDPA = GLOBE not so much

    over-all... try first SMART before Globe.. ok lang ang Globe pag dating sa Mobile Phone Service. ;)
     



  3. Sir, how about sun broadband? Is it good?

    before it was bought by PLDT... is a no no good.. I avail of their plan before and it just 3 months requested to be cancelled.. throttled ang speed nya di man lang swak sa sinasabing 2mbps.. and a friend of mine still with SUN said its still the same.. tyaga na lang sya muna hehehe.. pero not sure when the PLDT and will handle the entire network infra.... so in short for now its no go.. ;)

    @dayz,

    sorri my bad, I accidentally click the SUN instead the SMART.. so the vote I case for SUN is not valid, unfortunately i cannot recall my vote hehehe :D

    My vote is SMART

    === ok na na edit ko na.. SMART na vote hehehe
     



  6. Sir, may idea po ba anong max speed download ng smart? Ung actual po hindi un theoretical speed... Pati na rin po sa smart at sa globe and pde pa pa explain ung cap na sinasbi niyo po?

    sa Smart depende sa SIM or Device.. my prepaid smartbro can go 2Mbps .. my prepaid smart buddy sim can go beyond 2Mbps

    sa globe, prepaid and post globe is averaging 2Mbps maybe because I'm using old Huawei donggle which can go as 3.6Mbps pero na upgrade ko na firmware nun na pwede sa 7.2Mbps but I rarely go beyond 2Mbps..

    ah, I think because my old dongle is running only at 2100Mhz... most of the HSDPA+ for Smart runs at 800Mhz and 900mhz and Globe at 900Mhz... so make sure your device can support Multi Frequency or Multi Band for 800 and 900mhz.. so if you going to get SMART ensure its 800Mhz/900mhz capable and if you going to get globe its 900mhz

    second HSDPA or HSPA are not 100% coverage you may need to search the website for what areas are HSPA+... else you will go get only 3.5 G which is 2Mbps average

    yung capping sa Globe.. as per their CSR and website about fair usage policy.. if you avail of surf plan meron silang 800Megabytes of download usage per day, else you will be slowed or block until the next day. if you go for pay per use charge for per 15minutes every use.. wala daw silang capping yung nga per 15minute charging ka.. hindi unli..

    ;)
     



  8. hahaha is there a difference between prepaid smart bro and smart buddy sim? does that mean if i use smart buddy sim, i'll get more faster and reliable connection than smartbro?

    and i think the new ipad can handle several frquencies. i'm asking this because i dont want to waste money, giving some trial and error.

    by default walang difference except una iba ang load card ng smartbro prepaid.. so meaning if you buy a smart buddy load or smartbro load card hindi siya pwedeng gamiting sa isa't isa.

    then yung APN ng smartbro is SMARTBRO.. yung APN ng Smart Buddy is INTERNET hehehe

    then the configuration nung sim card number sa system nila.. Smartbro Prepaid sim and Smartbro Postpaid SIM Only (no dongle) is only for 2Mbps..

    however since you mentioned its for IPAD.. then its MICRO SIM smartbro.. (walang Micro Sim ang Smart buddy hehehe as I know of.. not sure if they release one) so the Micro SIM Smartbro is configure for 7Mbps so don't worry its faster..:)

    as per IPAD 3 Specs.. yyup it support Multi-Band from 850, 900, to 2100 Mhz so ok ka na dun

    Globe also offer Micro Sim.. but then again they have capping ek ek.. hahaha :D
     



  10. Sir, just want to clarify and correct me if i'm wrong pero hindi ba pati smart meron din sila cap thing? Ang alam ko ung sun lang ang walang.

    Out off-topic ito pero ang pinaka-abusado sa fair usage policy ai ung wi-tribe. Wala lang. Nakakainis kasi sila. Un lang hehe

    hahaha don't go to Wi-tribe.. i only use it for 1 month using their prepaid and its heck

    yung SUN walang cap pero mayroon throttling.. I also been with them and 3 months after I cancelled it.. kasi di lumagpas sa 384Kbps yung kanilang 2mbps kuno hehehe

    so far, wala akong na experience na throttling or capping sa Smart at Pldt.. saka kung pang IPAD.. sila lang yata alam ko may Micro Sim.. (not the ordinary SIM)...I assume your IPAD is the one with 3G+Wifi model?

    ;)
     



  12. Yes sir! It's wifi 3/4g hehe

    About wi-tribe, yes i know! Sorry pero nakakainis talaga sila.

    And pwede po pa explain ung throtttling?

    Ang globe, sun may microsim din po... Meron po talaga globe kasi sila po unang iphone 4 provider.

    not sure yung globe may micro sim for prepaid hehehe... alam ko lang kasi SMARTBRO nag bebenta ng Micro-SIM prepaid .. pero try mo ;)

    yung throttling.. binabagsak ang speed pag.. either sumobra ka na usage or gamit ka ng gamit at hind nila kayang ibigay lahat ng speed mo hehehe

    gaya ng SUN.. pag gumamit ng ako 2Mbps in an hour.. succeeding hours throttled down .. meaning ibabagsak na nila speed mo bigla.. hehehe noon yun not sure now since its PLDT SMART na ang SUN hehehe

    Wi-Tribe.. naku wag na mag.. at alam ko wala rin silang prepaid ng 3G.. wimax kasi 4G.. hindi gaya ng Globe at Smart.. 4G nila dalawa.. isang mobile cellular like 3G at isang Wimax..;)
     



  14. thank God, may sumang ayon din sa akin na bulok sila hahaha i complained before and told them that you guys dont even deserve call your network 4g, because it's so freakin slow and you should advertise it as 2g!!! and not even that, their demo unit is definitely a fraud... it's like they prioritize their demo unit to entice their customer to avail their product. not even that, their advertisement are also a big lie. if this is only in states, they already got their ass sued for millions of dollar.

    about the topic, grabe naman ung smart, naka ilan balik na ako like 3 weeks and until now wala pa rin sila ung microsim.. the hell? nakakapikon kung ganon sila.

    hahaha you are not alone tol.. marami na hehehe

    eh adik nga ads nila.. sabi nila.. others say they are 4G yet they stumble to 3G.. but we are true 4G with 56Kbps 99% reliability hahaha 4G na dial up ang reliability heheheh

    buti pa ma stumble sa 3G at least yung 384Kbps.. kaysa may reliability na pang dial up hehehe

    ha? naubusan sila ng microsim? try mo sa ibang business center.. yung center na alam mo bibihira lang pupunta at bumibili dun hehehe
     



  16. Ubos...ndi ko pa alam kung magkakaroon sila sir. Naka ilang balik na ako at parati nilang sinasabi wala. Ndi daw kasama sa delivery nila. Parang nakakatamad nang bumalik pag ganon. Kung ganon man baka mag sun na lang ako. Nakaktamad kasi pabalik balik...
