Globe Tattoo Broadband Sucks

Filed Under:

Let's face it. One of the reasons why a company changes a brand name is because - that product sucks.
Recently, Globe Telecom relaunched Globe Visibility as Globe Tattoo.


New name, same old service.
For those consumers who want to try it, here's a little heads up based on experience:
It probably is one of the worst, if not the worst internet service in the Philippines.
Heck, a dial-up connection runs faster with a cheaper price.
At 5 pesos per 15 minutes, you're better off going to the nearest internet cafe or buying a dial-up card.
Note: You pay 10 pesos if you have been connected for 15 minutes and 1 second.

What's the Skiverz Advice?
If a line connection is available in your area, better take that opportunity.
Mobile internet is not yet fully mature in this country.
You're better off with cheaper, more stable alternatives - like dial-up. lol

i bought this two months ago and though the HSDPA signal reads full, the download and upload speed is still at 0kbps. Funny thing is my room mate who has had Globe's visibility when it first came out could connect and I couldn't. The service does suck bigtime!

Naubos lang 100 php ko for nothing.

3G signal for globe is found almost everywhere in the country and that's supposedly enough to provide sufficient bandwidth to all their subscribers yet they're limiting it to a very low speed for some unknown reason. i wonder why they have to advertise 2mbps when all it can reach is up to 512kbps despite the signal in full scale, such a pathetic service! i have smartbro too but it didn't meet my expectations very well, surprisingly my sun broadband unbelievably true meet my expectations to the full level and consistenly except when downloading torrents. in my location (laspinas) i'm getting a full strength signal, it buffers the way you want it and factually as they've advertised it so far. my download speed reaches up to 250kbps meaning it's not just 2mbps but extending it upto 2.5mbps. smart & globe as a mature wireless providers should be competent enough to provide better service than sun, agree?

Di totoo yang mga bintang nyo sa Globe. Ako sa Mindanao nakatira at bundok pa bahay ko nakakaabot ako ng 3.6MB/sec sa Tattoo at visibility. Depende yata yan sa location nyo. Check muna ninyo Globe website kung included at covered ba area nyo sa HSDPA. Mabilis naman download nya. At depende rin ata yan sa speed ng computer nyo at internet cache nyo. Check muna baka puno na cache nyo at dapat ng i-delete mga browsing history nyo.May SmartBro din ako ganun din naman speed nya.

palpak talaga ang globe pati sa serbisyo nila, makwento ko lang ha: last sunday night APRIL 19, 2009 at 11 PM. somewhere in Lower Bicutan, Taguig City. malakas ang ulan, suddenly nawala ang signal dito sa area namin, i searched sa internet kung ano hotline ng globe thru landline kasi nga i cant call thru phone.nireport ko sa globe yung pagkawala ng signal para magawan agad nila ng paraan,sabi sa kin ng operator, try ko raw ioff and on ang phone ko or tanggalin ang SIM CARD baka daw phone ko ang may problema,but imposible kasi lahat kami dito walang signal,para walang gulo, sige ginawa ko ang sinabi nya.and wala pa ring nangyari, sabi nila mag antay daw ako ng dalawang araw para icheck daw ng technical group nila yung area, but wednesday na ngayon, wala pa ring signal dito sa area namin.ang tanong-ganun ba kabagal ang service ng globe? kaya nga minsan napapagod nakong tumawag sa kanila ulit kasi alam ko scripted yung mga sinasabi nila,paulit ulit parang robot lang nagsasalita, puro pasensya ang sinasabi, hoy GLOBE! ang pasensya at sorry once lang yan ginagamit,pag paulit ulit na, excuse na yan para matakpan ang kapalpakan nyo, naiinis ako kasi naexpire nalang Load ko na unlimited nga lang pero di ko nagagamit sa bagal ng serbisyo nila, yun lang naman,salamat po sa pagbabasa.

I was duped to get one when its price dropped to P995.00. When I got home, plugged it, all frakkin lame excuses for a so-called wireless broadband went to the roof, literally. Not a day would passed by without me swearing on this peace of crap. To think that I have HSDPA with all four bars visible. What a lame product! Your P100.00 will just be enough for an hour of swearing and bitching because the page is taking forever to load. Nope not a problem on my PC, I am an advanced user and a network administrator.

speed of connection really depends on the location. pag maayos na layout ng 3g network sa area nyo , lucky you. pag hindi bad for you...i am not expecting much from it kasi connection cards are not really meant to replace dsl for heavy data usage. more of pang mobility lang and un paminsan minsan mawawala dsl service sa bahay nyo

Ang globe tattoo ko sa SM Southmall umaabot ng 1.3mbps speed which is ang transfer rate ay 100-150kbps, ok naman siya. Sa bahay mga 1mbps lang, ok na din.. Pero sa ibang lugar, kahit HSDPA ang signal ko eh mabagal, mga 200kbps lang, 20-30kbps transfer rate. Ang panget lnag sa globe ang taas ng ping, hindi ako makalaro ng garena ng maayos.. GLOBE gawin nyo sana na kahit below 150 ping/latency para naman ok.

By default kasi, ang network type na selected ay WCDMA preferred. Take note, preferred means na pag weak ang signal ng WCDMA and/or HSDPA, GPRS ang gagamitin ni tattoo. But this can be changed to WCDMA only. How? In your Globe Tattoo application navigate to Tools -> Options -> Network and change the Network Type to WCDMA only. This will prevent tattoo from using the ancient GPRS system which has a very slow transfer rate.

Well, it is required though na may signal kayo ng WC or HS. Dito sa bahay namin, 1 bar lang sometimes 2 bars ang signal strength but my download rate can go to as high as 180 KBPS. So good luck. Huwag kayong complain lang ng complain. Try nyo muna.

depende lang yan sa location, and it also depends on the time kasi kapag over na sa traffic yung network, nag s slow down talaga. ako i am using PLDT dsl. but kapag uuwi ako sa probinsya, kelangan ko gamitin globe tatoo ko. wala ring HSPDA doon kaya tanggap ko na mahina talaga. depende lang yan sa location at network traffic guys.

Walang kasing panget ang Globe tattoo! Ano bang nagyari sa inyo bakit sobrang pangit ang network nyo ngayon??? Guys, try to lock your phone to 3G - both voice and data calls suck. 1 out of 5 calls drop, tapos di magkarinigan, tapos unti-unting nawawala ang boses mo na parang namamatayan ka ng battery!

Eto gamit ko ngayon tattoo. hindi masyado mahirap mag connect... pero NAPAKA BAGAL. signal man o hinde, dissapointed ako sa service nito sa area namin. kung totoo man yung maganda nga ang service sa ibang lugar, FYI, nasa Capital city ako. Manila, so hindi pa ba kasama manila sa HSDPA signal?? hahahaha

nakaka irita lang kase, ang taas na ng bahay namen wala pa din matinong signal?? wala naman ako kaagaw na ibang wifi dito sa area namin. atleast 3 houses around ng bahay namen walang me ibang connection.

what excuse ba naman ang ma ibibigay nyo... nasa taas nako ng bahay, nasa terrace na din ako.. wala pa din signal. "poor".. parang service ng signal nyo :(

dissapointed.

I was able to get to 2 to 3.6Mbps here. Location is a big factor, plus if you're within areas with lots of cement and iron or meshes be ready, signal won't be good.

GLOBE Downloading is Good umaabot ako ng 1.05mb/sec minsan, pero average is 954kb/sec mabilis na yun. ang kaso lang sa Globe ay may 800MB limit sila, un ang naka pangit sa kanila, at ngayun, palaging napuputol ang signal, recon ako ng recon para bumalik ang signal. sabi nla mas maganda daw ang sun kaso walang 3g sun d2 :-(
