Globe WiMax Sucks – A Quick Review

If you want a fast, reliable and consistent internet connection for your online business, it is best to look for wired connections such as the internet packages offered by PLDT and other proven internet service providers.
We don’t recommend Globe’s WiMax. It sucks big time. As of this writing, WiMax and Broadband internet connections here in the Philippines are still unreliable and unsatisfactory.

In a nutshell, here’s our findings about Globe WiMax:

  • Intermittent connection – on and off connection.
  • Unreliable – we always experience loss of signal. Not good for uploading data.
  • Inconsistent speed – generally slow. In fact, I’m having a very hard time right now while trying to publish this post.

    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…
