Looks like Liberty is in town.Â Saw this at the Petron station in Buendia cor. Makati Ave. They call it Wi-Tribe (Pronounced “wye tribe”). And they call it a 4G (4th generation) broadband technology.
Some quick bullets:
- I remember my friends at Intel being part of the WiMax testing back in circa 2005/2006 . Glad to know it’s now reaching the masses … slowly but surely.
- I hear they’re offering trial accounts in selected areas
- I hear (again) that they’re giving a guarantee of internet speeds of 2Mbps at P999 . That’s fast and cheap.
- The modem is rather big. It’s nomadic — meaning it can be transferred from one place to another, but it will not work *while* it’s being moved.
More info when we have them.
Update Jan 31:
- They’ve got a Philippine website: http://www.wi-tribe.ph/
