    Go for smart. better coverage and faster. siguro weak signal lang sa places owned by the Ayala's. but in most places kahit sa mga provinces ka pumunta malakas ang signal

    mas reliable smart especially sa province. lalo na pag madaling araw umaabot sa 1000 kb/s download ko sa smart samantalang sa dsl sa bahay eh mataas na 170 kb/s.

    To be honest, Globe is awful. Lots of late texts, lots of dropped calls, and finding signal can be difficult at times. Never even bothered to avail of their internet plans, and instead opted to avail of Sun Broadband for mobile surfing, libre pa Pocket Wi-Fi.

    However, almost all my contacts are Globe, and that alone is why I haven't jumped ship. A lot of my friends share the same sentiments, swerte lang ng Globe na mataas ang network switching costs.

    Add to that, KURIPOT sa phones ang Globe.

    Specially to its long-time clients.

    Ito rin isa sa mga reason from 9yrs of using globe then switch sa smart. Now, 6yrs na sa smart, problema lang wala ng early retention (18mos).

    Sa province, importante reliable yung network. Pag tumatawag ako sa mga relatives at mga kaibigan from luzon to mindanao walang problema ang smart. Ang problema, may mga cp number na hindi ma-contact agad, kagaya ng Globe at Sun.

    Agree here, 1000%. Especially if your monthly consumption isn't that much.

    How long have we been Globe clients? This is what my first Globe phone was:



    It had "Handyphone" written on it instead of Nokia if i recall correctly. If i had not changed lines and bought a new phone, baka ito pa rin yung phone ko kung umasa lang ako sa retention nila.
