Globe Tattoo Broadband VS Smart MyBro Network Internet Connection Speed Review

For most home based workers internet speed connection plays a vital role in delivering quality service for the clients. Poor internet connection means poor output that can terribly lead to unsatisfied clients worst being fired.

Out from curiosity I was given a chance to compare the two leading internet service provider companies in the Philippines, the Globe Tattoo and the My Bro from Smart Network.

Below are the specifications of the plan I purchased from the two networks:

Globe Tattoo Home Broadband - Internet and land line connection Plan 1099   

  • Wireless Connection
  • Up to 2mbps internet connection speed
  • Free Landline
  • Free Unli Call to Globe and TM
  • Free Wifi Router
  • Initial Cash Out – 1,299 Php
  • Monthly Payment – 1,099 Php plus 200Php for the first 6 months for the phone.
  • Fair Usage Policy – 5GB/ Day
  • Tech Support – Dial 211 (Using globe mobile)

Smart myBro Internet connection Plan 999

  • Wireless Connection
  • Up to 2mbps internet connection speed
  • No Free Landline
  • No Free Calls
  • No Free Wireless Router
  • Initial Cash Out – 499Php
  • Monthly Payment – 999Php
  • Fair Usage Policy – 60GB/ Month
  • Tech Support – Dial *1888
From the specification above you can really see the cons and pros of the two Internet service providers.

To elaborate the comparison the next thing I did is to test the individual speed using speedtest.com. To be fair, I selected the same server for the ISP’s to ping.

Above images you can obviously see the big speed difference of the two providers. Globe got a Grade: B (faster that 67% of PH average internet speed) while Smart only got Grade: D- (Slower that 80% of PH average internet speed). However, this speed test doesn’t guarantee 100% percent accuracy. It will still depend from your location to the nearest network station.

Hope this review helps you in deciding what internet connection service to choose for. Cheers!
