Still Globe? Not a Smart idea!

Yeah I tend to agree with this. Except I have no choice since most of my contacts use Globe. If I switched over to Smart post paid, I wouldn't be able to avail of the unlimited calling plans because these don't apply to inter-network calls.

How I wish the National Telecommunications Commission step in and mandate that unli calls will be allowed between smart and globe numbers (and vice versa) Then it would be a no-brainer. I will be able to finally switch to Smart. In the meantime, I have to settle for a pre-paid Smart number.

BTW anybody tried Smart's LTE network? How's the coverage in Metro Manila? Luzon? And how's the speed?

You're globe number is only two weeks old and you already have lots of spam from real estate agents, etc.? I thought I had so much spam because my number's almost 10 years old. So getting spam messages has got nothing to do with how old your number is after all.

I wonder why Globe doesn't do anything to stop or at least filter all these spam. Unless of course, Globe does business with these companies. In exchange for providing globe numbers to these companies, these companies pay Globe some sort of fee.

I also have a Smart number but I do not get any spam on that network. So the only conclusion I can draw is that Globe is behind this irritating practice.


I also get these spam from real estate agents in my Globe line. This is the downside of the unlimited text promos. It costs little to spam or troll subscribers.

This has to be brought to the attention of the National Telecommunications Commission so they can insturc Globe to stop this irritating practice.

Same here. Signal is getting less stable resulting in more frequent dropped calls, garbled conversations, and rising blood pressure.

If you think Globe's service is bad, you should try living here. Interesting video.

I suspect this is true. Companies which I have never even heard of even greet me with my name!!

Minsan ang bulok talaga ng service ng Globe, there were times na may signal naman sa screen ng phone ko pero di ako makatawag or text.

This happens to me too. What I do is turn off my phone and then turn it back on. This usually solves the problem.

Will finally try using Smart post-paid service with unli calling and probably unlimited 4G LTE service. Sawa na ako sa lousy service ng globe.

Can anyone vouch for the 4G LTE service of Smart. How's the speed and the coverage?

Will finally try using Smart post-paid service with unli calling and probably unlimited 4G LTE service. Sawa na ako sa lousy service ng globe.

Finally got myself a Smart post-paid sim card with unli calling. Didn't avail of the 4G LTE service because according to the Smart customer rep, LTE service has a cap. I'm not sure if it's a 4 gb cap.

I want an LTE service that's unlimited. I will subscribe to the LTE service of Smart once they remove that cap.

So far so good. I have a signal all over the house even if the signal repeater we have installed is turned off. It's easy to make and receive calls. Should have done this years ago instead of enduring the lousy service of Globe.

Just wish the NTC would now mandate that both Globe and Smart subscribers be allowed to make unli calls to subscribers of other networks. Right now Globe subscribers can only make unlimited calls to other globe numbers. They need to pay P7.50 per minute if they call another network such as Smart or Sun.

Same thing goes for Smart.

In the US, telecoms have done away with these silly policies. Subscribers of T-mobile can make unlimited free calls to subscribers of Verizon, land-lines, AT&T, etc. And vice versa. There is no longer any distinction insofar as who your carrier is. You can call any number in the United States free of charge for a fixed monthly fee. The service is usually bundled with 4G LTE. Many carriers do not have a cap meaning unlimited surfing. Even international roaming charges have virutally disappeared according to a friend of mine. She can call her sister while both of them are in the Philippines using their US numbers and are charged 3 cents a minute. While we Filipino subscribers have to pay up to P150 per minute when we use international roaming on our Globe or Smart mobile phones overseas.

The NTC is supposed to be an advocate for consumers. It's supposed to rule in favor of subscribers, bringing costs down. Instead, the NTC seems to be taking the side of the telecoms in exchange for mullah.

In this age of smart phones where one can download apps such as viber or magic jack, it's a wonder why anyone would want to rely on super expensive international roaming rates when getting a free internet connection abroad will make viber or magic jack calls possible. But it seems neither Globe nor Smart have taken note of these new technologies which could affect their bottom line insofar as international roaming charges go. Why shoud I pay P150 per minute using international roaming when I can just call a friend of mine who has magic jack or viber installed on his smart phone in the Philippines? Since I also have viber and magic jack installed on my smart phone, I can call my friend in Manila absolutely free of charge. I can talk for hours and not be charged a cent. Except of course if wi-fi isn't free. Even then, cost of using the internet at the hotel is so much less expensive than Philippine international roaming rates.

Bro just wanted to find out in which city you're hitting 26mbps. I live in Makati (Ayala country which owns Globe Telecom) and the signal here is almost nil.

Depend on your location. Not all of Metro Manila (much less the Philippines) has 4G LTE service.

Yeah it's that "Fair Usage Policy" that telecoms impose on its subscribers. Once you reach the cap, you're speed automatically drops from 4G to 3G. You're paying 4G rates for 3G service. BS talaga...
