    Any news when globe will improve their internet services both for DSL and Mobile? Especially mobile, I hate to be carrying two phones and I don’t want to get dual sim phones because I want to stick to one provider. I use my globe number for calls and text only, and my new smart prepaid number for my android phone. Smart has excellent 3g speeds besides being able to provide call and text services of course. I’m giving globe a year.. sorry make that a few more months, for globe to improve their mobile internet services (my globe DSL at home is unreliable also). Otherwise, my globe mobile number which I had for more than 5 years will go bye bye.. Rest In Peace (0917XXXXXXX).

    the service reliability and efficiency depends on the the kind of network your phone is attached. in rural areas, SMART is quite good but when it comes to urbanized areas, Globe can prevail. however, if your phone cannot support the 3G services, better dont wait for any efficient services, just wait for text and call….

    I have both Smart and Globe. I observe that Globe is more reliable in terms of call connection (except inter-network calls) and services such as balance inquiry (I need to request 3 – 4 times from my Smart phone before I get load balance).

    Kahit ano pa tawag ninyo sa product ninyo Broadband/DSL/High-speed Internet, unless you back up your claim that you are “most reliable GSM network”, wala pa rin.
