"We challenge anyone with a competitive wireless subscription to try out our WiMax-backed plans. We are so confident with our service that we challenge you to try out our connection, risk-free. Should you be unhappy with the connection within one month from installation, we'll give you your money-back, no questions asked", said Menchi Orlina, head of Globe's consumer broadband business group, during the launch of Globe WiMax about a year ago. I wonder if this also applies to subscribers now availing the prepaid modems.

Globe WiMax Prepaid uses the Green Packet UH "Shuttle" modem. It's a WiMax USB modem with fixed and nomadic capability. It’s the world’s first high gain USB modem supporting both fixed and nomadic WiMAX. UH ‘Shuttle’ also has Dual Omni antenna (1Tx,2Rx) with 5dBi Antenna Gain which boasts up to 30Mbps throughput.

The rate of P60/day is more expensive compared to the current P50/day unlimited offerings of the 3G/HSDPA networks of Smart, Sun and Globe. Modem is also expensive at P2900 compared to the P1500+ USB modems of the other 3G networks.

Globe's WiMAX network is considered the first and biggest 2.5Ghz WiMAX 802.16e broadband network in South East Asia.
