Globe introduce WIMAX broadband

By subictimes.com
SUBIC BAY Freeport: Globe Telecoms announced its newest wireless broadband technology in an effort to bring more and more Filipinos closer together.

To date, Globe has the largest Wimax network in South East Asia, and will be doubling its current footprint in the coming months, allowing Globe to reach more Filipino families.

WIMAX or Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access is designed to enable the deployment of wireless broadband access as a cost-efficient alternative to existing services from cable and DSL.

One of the most useful qualities of WIMAX is its improved reach versus other wireless technologies; this means that WIMAX can cover distances greater than those covered by WI-FI, CDMA or even 3G and HSPA. When it commercially launched in Feb. 2009, Globe’s network was also the first 2.5 Ghz WIMAX (802.16 e) broadband network in South East Asia.

WIMAX is a self-install broadband kit, allowing the user to get an internet connection right away.

According to Globe officials the kit is plug and play, which would be easier for customers who buys the kit.

The modems come with interesting designs made by noted top fashion designers James Reyes and Puey Quinones, making the modems a good conversation talk piece.

Self-install Wimax is available in selected Globe stores in Metro Manila, Pampanga, Bulacan, Cavite, Batangas, Laguna, Quezon, Cebu, Bohol. Bacolod, Dumaguete, Iloilo, Zamboanga, Cagayan de Oro, and General Santos.
