    ^^Hahah. True that. They only achieve ideal speeds during advertisements.

    Anyway, AFAIK Wimax is also a 4G technology (the other being LTE). The true benefits of both are yet to be realized at the consumer end, IMO.

    nice to, khet tig 5 Mbps per user pwede na ^_^ asa naman sa 30-50 Mbps presyong ginto!

  8. I have a feeling when it becomes available they will cap the speed to 512kbps like Globe did with their Wimax 4g.. sucks eh..

    Also read the bottom of the article:

    "The network components of LTE are designed to be scaleable and modular. This means the company can slowly introduce LTE technologies over time, without disrupting current services." <<<< wlang capital para ma upgrade nila ang mga towers to 4G immediately...i guess magdudusa muna tayo for such a long time using the pathetic unreliabe slow Smart 3/3.5G.. grrrrrr
