Philioppine Smart network better than Globe–NTC

SMART Communications Inc.’s network is officially better than that of rival Globe Telecom Inc., data from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) showed.
Translated into layman’s terms, what this result means is that Smart’s signal level is up to five times stronger than Globe’s. In terms of customer experience, a stronger signal level means better indoor coverage, resulting in better voice quality, less drop calls, faster and more reliable SMS and higher data speeds.
Of all the 5 tests that NTC has conducted, only 1 test shows that Globe has an edge over Smart and that is the Grade of Service.

PLDT looking 4 American partner for mobile voice, data service in US

This may be a catch up move as Globe already has a major USA partner, Vonnage offering unlimited free calls to all Globe's Postpaid, Globe Prepaid, TM and Globelines subscribers in the Philippines  The Globe Vonage plan combines unlimited calling to all of Globe’s more than 31 million mobile and wireline subscribers which includes their cell phones and landlines and should make the Globe landline subscription very desired in the Philippines as a result.
If PLDT, SMART, SUN, and Talk & Text were all combined in the same package linkup as sister companies, it would be a great incentive for subscribers of PLDT like Globe has already.

CEBU - The international sales and marketing arm of Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. is looking to partner with an American company for mobile voice and data services, targeting over three million Filipinos based in the US.

"We are really striving hard to get to larger markets. We opened in Taiwan, Malaysia, Guam, Singapore, Hong Kong and Macau. The challenge is picking the right partner in the US," Eric Alberto, PLDT executive vice president and head of Enterprise and International and Carrier Business told reporters.

Skype might be a good fit for their consideration with so many in the world using Skype now and it being a paid service available including in the USA.

With a call rate of P1.50 per minute to the US and Canada, Balingit said more consumers will appreciate the value offerings of the budget card. She also pointed out that PLDT’s telecommunications infrastructure gives the company leverage as consumers will prefer using budget cards because they are assured of fast and clear connection when they call family and friends overseas. “This is backed up by our market research data wherein 85 percent of PLDT budget card users are very satisfied with the service,” she said.
