Monday, October 1, 2012

Philippine PLDT/Smart network better than Globe–NTC

Thursday, September 20, 2012

SMART Communications Inc.’s network is officially better than that of rival Globe Telecom Inc., data from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) showed.
Of all the 5 tests that NTC has conducted, only 1 test shows that Globe has an edge over Smart and that is the Grade of Service.
Translated into layman’s terms, what this result means is that Smart’s signal level is up to five times stronger than Globe’s. In terms of customer experience, a stronger signal level means better indoor coverage, resulting in better voice quality, less drop calls, faster and more reliable SMS and higher data speeds.
For blocked calls, which refers to the percentage of calls that were not given access by the network, both cellular firms failed this test. Smart garnered a score of 9.95 percent while Globe recorded 4.45 percent. The standard is set at 4 percent. For this criteria, the NTC noted that Globe’s performance has an edge over Smart.  the fact is that Smart has already upgraded their network but their services are still lacking…

Friday, April 1, 2011

Smart’s per Minute Rate for Mobile 3G
1 peso per minute rate is an option available for users who have prepaid load of less than Php10. This is to help users maximize their remaining load credits.

 However, there another set of per minute charging which is available to all prepaid users as another option.

So that’s Php60 for 3 hours (180 minutes) and expires in 2 days, Php100 for 5 hours (300 minutes) and expires in 4 days and Php150 for 7.5 hours (450 minutes) and expires in 7 days.

The rates still follows Smart Bro’s Php20 per hour and will still be great for people who frequently use Twitter, FB or FourSquare but don’t really need to go online 24/7.

If you go with UnliSurf, that’s Php50 for 24 hours. If your cumulative mobile internet usage is under 3 hours for 2 days, instead of using Php100 for 2 days of UnliSurf, you have the option to pick Php60 for 3 hours within a 2-day period (which makes it cheaper).
