*Globe LTE Users Thread (no piracy, torrent topics/hints)




  • So lalakas LTE, Hihina naman wifi. hehehe
  • @aamd

    Nakaka-awa actually ganyang situation. Optimal solution is ilakad ng LGU nila to coordinate sa telco to add cellsites (na minsan certain LGUs ay nanghihingi pa ng padulas)

    Next na pwedeng gawin is external antenna. Kaso sa mga ganyang communities, masyadong mahal for their income yung ganun (worse if di pa officially supported ng model ng pocket wifi yung external antenna at all). As a community, pwede nila i-pool budget nila for a decent antenna plus malakas enough na modem kaso depende sa number of users ay baka di kayanin ng modem yung workload. Not to mention, sa isang spot lang available unless magdagdag pa ng budget for wifi access points na ikakabit dun sa modem.

    Next na possible workaround is use USB cable sa ganyang setup. Kaso beyond 3 meters eh tricky na paganahin due to USB spec cable length limitations. For comparison, most external antenna ships with 10M as a minimum for bundled cables.

    Yung isa pang downside ng setup na yan ay biglaang malakas na ulan na may kasamang hangin pati kidlat. So dapat palaging may nakabantay. Also, babad sa araw yan so mas prone to overheating yung unit na nagde-degrade ng performance pati components especially battery.

    So if ever kasama kayo sa isang project providing connectivity sa ganyang areas, best to donate external antenna plus modem instead of supplementing yung ganyang workarounds since mas long lasting and higher performance yung ganun. Of course, coordinating with telco and LGU para mapabilis deployment ng infra (if within the means) is still better.
  • bilis ng rollout ni globe ng 5G


    Mostly signal-level activation pa lang though and not service-level aka "5G-inactive status". Tipong masasagap mo na yung signal pero di pa gamit yung 5G layer for data transfer. It's enough for certain devices to start showing 5G na status icon despite technically 4G LTE yung connection pero if upgraded naman yung area eh the user won't know better given yung speed improvements compared sa previous level of 4G LTE performance.


    I just hope na i-activate na nila yung 5G data layer soon. Nakaka-asar na kasi makita na nakakasagap ng 5G signal pero 5G-inactive pala once tignan mo yung technical details nung connection like sa HManager or Service Menu. Though 200Mbps na LTE/"5G-inactive" performance is mostly enough if bandwidth lang usapan. Yung latency improvement ng activated 5G over LTE is hard to ignore once maexperience mo though.
  • I agree brader.

    Sad state.

    Sana malaman nila kung paano mag DIY ng antenna.

    I hope nagloload ang youtube tutorial sa ganyang setup.
  • Nagpa upgrade kami sa Plan 1699 20mbps 600GB

    White Mamba ang modem na gamit namin.
    Nag-ala technician ako kasi kami nalang nagikot ng antenna at naghanap ng magandang signal.
    Luckily, nakahanap naman ng magandang pwesto. B40 locked namin sya, 20mpbs download, 5-6 mbps upload speed.
    So far, satisfied naman kami compared before na laging nagloloko talaga.
    Lessson learned, walang maaasahan sa mga technician nila.



    How about FDD bands 1,3,28 (or CA of those since white Mamba naman pala) sa area niyo? Congested ba? Para naman if ever 20Mbps down and up if di congested. In my area kasi FDD bands maganda so yung Plan 1699 20Mbps up and down pag dun nakaband lock kahit B315 lang. Talo pa wired na Globe home postpaid 20Mbps na limited to 7 or 12Mbps upload speed.
  • capable naman ng 4.5g un phone ko. 4.5g siya kapag gamit ko is smart pero sa globe sim 4g lang siya.. may bagong upgrade ba ang sim ng globe..?

    Congested na talaga area dito samin. Tried those bands pero wala talaga eh.. Hindi stable lalo na yung band 1, mataas download speed pero super lag pag gaming..

    Depende if naka-CA yung current band na gamit lalabas yung LTE+/4.5G na icon. Baka di supported ng phone mo yung specific LTE CA band combinations na enabled sa area mo or pinili ng phone mo yung non-CA na LTE band due to certain reasons. As long as okay naman speed mo, it shouldn't really bother you.

    For example, sa area ko 1CC Band 1 ng Globe (which is LTE/4G lang yung indicator)can go around 60Mbps pero yung 2CC Band40 (which will trigger 4.5G/LTE+ na icon) is slower at around 40Mbps.

    If anything, your phone showing 4.5G/LTE+ only means na gumagamit siya ng LTE carrier aggregation at that moment.

    ito yata yung mga tinatawag na 5G NSA naka relay pa sa 4G infra, compared sa 5G SA na tinatawag nila na real 5G
  • FYI before subscribing or buying devices from Globe, make sure to read the fine print
    I purchased an Android TV upgrade that was offered on top of my [email protected] LTE because of a promo/advertisement na 18 months ko lang daw siya babayaran (save 6 months from normal 24 months) at nagulat ako nung tiningnan ko yung current bill ko:


    As of now I'm still trying to reach their customer service hotline pero wala akong makausap regarding this.
  • ^ punta ka na lang sa globe store nila paps, para mabilis pag process sa bill adjustment, hirap sa hotline kelangan pa nyan ng approval
  • ito yata yung mga tinatawag na 5G NSA naka relay pa sa 4G infra, compared sa 5G SA na tinatawag nila na real 5G


    Yeah 5G NSA pa nga lang - may anchor na LTE band for authentication then separate spectrum for 5G for the data traffic itself. Though there's this thing going on right now na 5G signal is broadcasting, nakikita ng device yung signal and shows 5G logo pero purely LTE lang talaga dadaan yung data aka "5G-inactive". Usually for cell sites na under testing pa lang and di pa fully launched. It feels kinda deceptive to be honest. Tipong need mo pa mag Service Menu or HManager para lang makita yung true status pero WebUI eh sasabihin 5G. Yung pampalubag-loob na lang is usually upgraded na capacity ng area so ramdam mo improvement kahit sa LTE.

  • sa globe yung dinedeploy nga nila na 5G NSA nakalagay yung panel antenna ng 5G sa mga lte cell tower, unlike sa smart sa poste nakalagay, im not sure kung yan yung 5G SA na tinatawag nila, my benefits din sa mga lte user kung makakapag upgrade ng bandwidth yung tower for 5G NSA
  • yung 5G NSA/SA ay nasa core level ng network at wala sa antenna. More of software aspect ng network design siya.




    Usually few networks pa lang worldwide may consumer-usable 5G Core for 5G SA since it is a major network investment and upgrade so to deploy faster, they go 5G NSA first reusing yung existing LTE network core or Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and add 5G Spectrum and other 5G transmission and related technologies on top to deliver improved performance.

  • @oweneighty

    Same tayo experience with ZLT S10g. Bigla bigla na lang nawawala yung connection. Solution lang is on off yung router. O kaya restart device. Medyo hassle nga. Feel ko dahil dun sa band lock. Pag sa iba ko nacoconnect okay naman.
  • @sky111
    Problema kasi pag naka select all ng band doon siya sa band 41 kumokonek, ang weird lang kasi sa phone ko mabilis ang band 41 pero pag kay ZLT S10g sablay wala pang 12mbps yung speeds na dapat ay 20mbps kaya stick lang sa band 3 na hindi congested
  • Guys nag email sakin globe may nakakaalam ba kung ano to?

    Dear valued customer,

    Thank you for staying with Globe At Home through these challenging times.

    We are doing our best to make every day a better online experience for you, especially at home. To do this, we are upgrading your modem for FREE to give you a much better home internet experience with faster speeds.



    My plan: gobig 1699 20mpbs 600g B525 modem(black) w/ admin

    Ano kaya yung ipapalit pag pumayag ako?? mas ok sana kung akin padin yung b525
  • ^ most likely huawei b535-932 or b2368, wag ka na lang pumayag palitan kung ok naman yung connection mo sa b525

    Problema kasi pag naka select all ng band doon siya sa band 41 kumokonek, ang weird lang kasi sa phone ko mabilis ang band 41 pero pag kay ZLT S10g sablay wala pang 12mbps yung speeds na dapat ay 20mbps kaya stick lang sa band 3 na hindi congested


    pag sa cp kasi paps yung B41 naka CA kaya mas mabilis, sa ZLT single band lang
