Globe WiMax Sucks – A Quick Review

Update: Globe’s Wimax product is not existing anymore. They now offer Globe At Home Plans. This is an old post. Go to Globe’s corporate website for their latest services.

Globe Telecom is one of the leading providers of wireless broadband services in the Philippines. The company offers a wide range of coverage and services, making it a good choice for residential and business users.

One of the things that set Globe WiMax apart from other providers is its focus on customer service. The company has a 24/7 customer service hotline that is available to help with any questions or concerns that users may have.

Plans

Globe WiMax offers two different types of plans – unlimited and capped. The unlimited plan is ideal for those who want to use the service for heavy data usage, such as streaming video or downloading large files. The capped plan is better for those who wish to use the service for lighter data usage, such as browsing the web or checking email.

Capped Plan Sucks

The biggest downside of the Globe WiMax service is the capped plan. The problem with this plan is that it is very easy to go over the data limit, and when this happens, the connection’s speed is drastically reduced. This can make it very difficult to do things like stream videos or download large files. In addition, the monthly fee for the capped plan is relatively high.

Unlimited Plan

If you can afford it, the unlimited plan is the way. It is much more expensive than the capped plan, but it is worth it for the peace of mind that you will never have to worry about going over your data limit. In addition, the speed of the connection is always high, so you will never have to deal with slow speeds.

Conclusion

Overall, Globe Internet Sevices is a good choice for those who need a reliable and fast wireless broadband connection. In addition, the company offers a wide range of coverage and services, making it a good choice for both residential and business users.

However, the biggest downside of the service is the capped plan. The problem with this plan is that it is very easy to go over the data limit, and when this happens, the connection’s speed is drastically reduced.

    Globe Wimax sucks!! Intermittent connection for more than one month and their engineers cannot even do something about it. I have made several reports, the problem of intermittent connection started July 22, 2011 and problem persist until now. Prior to intermittent connection my problem was slow browsing. parusa talaga mag globe wimax never ending ang problema.

    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.

  • I agree…they say it is unlimited plan but the truth is it has a cap on it…
    last time I called their support center says my account is capped…
    so I asked how much is the download limit and they say it is just a whipping 25gb..what a bummer….
    asan ang unlimited dun?
    unlimited connection lang pala ito…
    kala ko pa naman speed…
    can’t even read a single page in my favorite manga dahil capped ang service ko…
    IT SUCKS!but i have no choice dahil ito lang ang service na inooffer dito sa amin…
    no other choice…
