So after 24 hours of waiting and testing my iPhone 5, I finally get to see the “LTE” signal this morning. But that’s after calling Globe CSR last night to ask if the Globe-issued nano SIM that I just got from the Globe Business Center in Podium was already “provisioned” for LTE. Apparently, the SIM was not LTE-provisioned by default so it’s a good thing I called Globe CSR.
So, this morning I observed if my iPhone 5 will finally get LTE. Well, it did. I was somewhere along E. Rodriguez Ave. in Manggahan Pasig and voila, 3G was gone and on its place was — LTE. I immediately fired up Speedtest.net and got the download speed (see image above).
Not that fast right? Somewhere along Calle Industria in Pasig, while LTE is still on I did the speedtest again and got the download speed below:
Then somewhere in Eastwood/C5 area I got the following:
Finally in Ortigas, the LTE download speed:
So, there. Globe LTE is now working on my iPhone 5. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a location nearby which would register 10MBPS plus speed. Heard that folks in the Makati and BGC areas are getting a burst in speed.
Still, 6.99 mbps was fast enough. I was able to update 9 apps in just few minutes.
Have you experience Globe LTE? What was your fastest speed?
