With speed likes this I pity the fool who signed up for a 2 year plan with Globe Visibility. It’s GPRS for heaven’s sake. Good thing I got in on pre-paid.
The youngest and smallest network Sun Cellular fared better. I am considering getting Sun Call & Surf Unlimited ~ P999/month for unlimited Calls & SMS Sun-to-Sun plus unlimited data.
SMART posted the best results among the 3 carriers. I think it is the only one who was able to reach 3G speed. No luck with HSDPA though.
Tests were done using an iPhone 3GS
Globe Visibility: P5 / 15min
Sun Cellular: P10 / 30min
Smart: P10 / 30min
Without a doubt SMART comes out on top in terms of speed. Both SMART and SUN stayed connected for the most part. Globe Visibility had the most miserable experience.
It should be noted that a lot of factors affect speed. The network, location, interference, signal strength, network load, etc. YMMV
