As of today, there are only two commercially available Wimax providers in the Philippines – Globe Wimax and Liberty Telecom’s Wi-tribe. The highest speed of the available subscription plan is Wi-tribes 2 mbps. The highest of Globe wimax is 1 mbps. My subscription plan is Globe’s 512 kbps for Php 795 per month.
I usually check my connection speed using speed test.net and wi-tribes connection speed tester. And last night, actually 3 am this morning, I was stunned by the incredibly high connection speed test result using speedtest.net – 18.26 mbps!!!!
I double checked using wi-tribe speed tester and got 16.78 mbps!!!
