  • We subscribed to the 1mbps plan and I am pleased to say that it’s a real 1mbps plan even though we’ve got several computers open 24/7 and the speed doesn’t get affected, unless you’d open at about 15 computers – then that’s another issue
  • We usually experience some trouble about once a month, and that’s really rare compared to our recent PLDT subscription in which we had absolutely zero internet in our location
  • For P995 I think this is a very good service Globe provides, and would recommend this to anyone who has problems with PLDT MyDsl

      We were having problems with our recent internet connection as we had just moved in to another house, so we had it disconnected and had registered to Globe Wimax since this was recommended by friends and family as apparently it’s speed was true at 1mbps and it’s also got an easy installation with just one day.

      The processing was quite long and we had to wait a month as the service center we had visited, Globe Greenhills, was so terrible and we had waited a month in vain but to no avail as there were still no records for installation and we


      just had visited another Globe center and it only took 2 days and our Globe Wimax was already working.

      The Globe Wimax is a Wi-fi connection and it’s valued at a monthly rate of P995. We subscribed to the 1mbps plan and I am pleased to say that it’s a real 1mbps plan even though we’ve got several computers open 24/7 and the speed doesn’t get affected, unless you’d open at about 15 computers – then that’s another issue. We have 5 computers open and we still get a good speed and there’s no internet connection problems that couldn’t be fixed in ...


      • a couple of minutes. We usually experience some trouble about once a month, and that’s really rare compared to our recent PLDT subscription in which we had absolutely zero internet in our location!

        Here with Globe Wimax, I’ve only experienced resetting the system about twice a month maximum, and once you’ve resetted the modem then everything just is perfect again and at the same 1mbps speed no less. The connection hardly ever has glitches and if you ever experience some then it won’t happen that often, maybe once a month and it’s easy to just reset the modem. Globe has a

        better connection than PLDT and I honestly think whatever location you’re in, Globe Wimax would be faster as Globe signals are everywhere. What’s even better is that they would test your location first before letting you apply so you wouldn’t have to wait and be hassled, and you can do this just on the phone. So if you want to apply just call their hotline at 730-1000 and choose Broadband and they will survey your area first before you apply. For P995 I think this is a very good service Globe provides, and would recommend this to anyone who has problems with PLDT MyDsl.

    The good thing about Globe Wimax is that Globe will first survey and inspect your area first they will go to your house for a scheduled inspection and see if the signal is good there, otherwise they wouldn`t recommend on going through with the installation as there wouldn`t be any good coverage. If you have a good Globe reception on your mobiles then it`s most probably that you`ll get a good internet connection with the Globe Wimax just call Globe and they`ll do the rest.

    Hi glenn,

    It has nothing to do if you are near the town proper. If you are near their remote satellite stations then, there is a good chance to get a better reception. It also helps if you put your settings to WCDMA only, HSDPA or 3g only for you to know if your area is getting high speed internet coverage and not the slow 2g internet connection.

    I`m a beginner in this thing, I just had my broadband last week, I have nobody to call, to ask to, on what`s happening on my internet speed. I know there`s something wrong with it. I even need to wait at least 3-4 days just to download a 50 MB torrent file. I wanted to call out Globe for this problem. Many times i check my internet speed my download speed ranges to 300-500kbps, upload speed ranges 50-140kbps. Isn`t that bad??Indeed Again, I`m a beginner Please, do ever help me. I can`t imagine this

    It’s possible that your speeds may have been restricted if you’ve exceeded the download limit. Of course this would depend on which plan you have. I would suggest contacting Global Wimax to be sure.

    Recently we have experienced some slow downloads as it depends on how much you are actually downloading and there`s a list in which people with the most downloads are monitored to give way to subscribers who aren`t downloading as much, this is the policy it kind of sucks but it`s how it really works I guess even with other broadband networks. I don`t have complete information you guys can call 730-1000 for detailed help. Thanks and goodluck guys

    i am a globe wimax subscriber plan 995 1Mbps… I think that we don`t get what we paid for at first my speed test shows 1.20MBps and i was amaze by that.. but after the second week of using it i was surprise my speed test became 0.20MBps.. and download speed almost 10Kbps…I thought the signal os the problem but when i look at the signal strength it was 96%. I think globe is limiting the speed we are using today.. Globe needs to explain this one,,,

    There can be limits placed on your service depending on which plan you have. The bandwidth likely has a cap on it, so you should check your plan to be sure.

    Thia has happrned a loy of times to us with Globe as well but when we constantly called them up about the failing service and about the speed not meeting the minimum subscribed, it has now gone better and probably they saw the no. Of complains our account has that they just had to give in and give us no limit of what we subscribed to. Just always let them know that you won’t settle for the kind of service they are giving you. They will ultimately give it one way or another.
