Globe WiMax Internet service now in Mindanao

The Globe WiMax Internet Service isn’t new, yes…but the fact that it’s expanding in Mindanao (and Visayas, actually) is certainly something exciting! Globe Telecom and Intel Philippines have partnered up to bring us WiMax or worldwide interoperability for microwave access. It’s a cutting-edge service cum wireless technology that will bring Internet access to more and more Filipinos around the country.

According to Globe, “WiMax is a standards-based technology designed to enable the deployment of wireless broadband access as a cost-efficient alternative to cable and wired broadband DSL. This new technology also aims to improve reach since it can cover distances greater than those covered by other wireless technologies like WiFi, CDMA, or 3G.

The Globe WiMax package offers Internet service for P795 per month. The package also comes with an aggressive money-back guarantee.

“We challenge anyone with a competitive wireless subscription to try out our Wimax-backed plans. We are so confident with our service that we challenge you try out our connection, risk-free. Should you be unhappy with the connection within one month from installation, we’ll give you your money-back, no questions asked,” according to Menchi Orlina, head of Globe’s consumer broadband business group.

Starting this June 2009, the Globe WiMax service will be offered in CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY. Before the end of the year, the service will also cover these other areas in Mindanao: Zamboanga, Cotabato, General Santos City, Lanao province, Surigao area, Compostela Valley and the Agusan province.

Interestingly, Globe hasn’t announced if the WiMax service will be available in Davao City. Do you think it’s because of the stiff competition among Internet providers over there?

Do you think you’ll avail of the Globe WiMax service? (Because I personally am very interested in this!)

  2. Nik says:

    I stay in ZC often and Internet connectivity is very limited outside of “downtown” Zamboanga.

    I talked to a CS rep from Globe today and unfortunately, the sames goes for WiMax. Limited to about 5 barangays in central downtown area, but they promised to expand soon. (I’m not going to hold my breath)

  3. @nik – Thanks for sharing! Do you think they’re just playing it safe pa muna? Baka kasi they want to see if the demand will increase…

  4. franco suelto says:

    can you expand your services in Zamboanga del Norte area because the philippine army needs connectivity in the internet to monitor the daily situation both local and national issues. It will also help in the peace and development initiatives of the army unit in the field in integrating our efforts in the civilian sector.

  5. Dabawenyo says:

    From what I heard, WiMax is not available in Davao due to a frequency conflict with local wireless cable provider Home Channel. It seems that NTC issued both companies the same frequency.
