Hi guys

Just rantin by!
Ok, so most of you pinoy peeps have already heard about the new 4G LTE mobile network from Smart.
What is it? Probably the fastest mobile internet in the country, cuz it's 4G man! With a speed of up to 42mbps it's perfect for downloading hd movies in minutes, lagless gaming ... as advertised.
I was pretty excited when I heard of it, sounds awesome eh? Unfortunately there's a downside.
It has cap of 10 Gigs. What's that mean? Someone commented that it's like getting a new super fast ferrari car and you can only drive it for 10 kilometers, after that they'll charge you
for every kilometer your take. How much? It's P500 per Gig.

It's pretty fucked up, they say it's competitive price.
Well majority of the Filipinos here don't exactly have big salaries. What kind of idiot would wish for this kind of robbery?
Why do they call themselves Smart? They should at least advertise that this service only caters to the rich. In fact, I think even rich people wouldn't want this.

aaahhhhhhh...rantin feels good man! You gotta rant once in a while, ya know?
You gotta let it out! All that crap inside ya ain't healthy!
So rant with me! come on!

On a positive note, it's nice to know we're catching up with technology, 4G technology!
Yeah! I still want that BIG Cintiq 24 HD!

I am sure that such robbery is a crime to potentially prevent another crime, and that's Piracy via Torrents more likely, hence the monstrous price.

lol, I rant every now and then. Can't believe the highway robbery taking place at the ole' homeland, it stinks. Its as if they think everybody has a lot of money.

Same sh*t is going on in Germany since some years ago. Started with UMTS-sticks and now they are advertising the same old thing.
Only difference now is that you get to burn up your 10gig alot faster than before, never-ending stupidity. xD

I'd just like it mentioned that 10Gbs is a pretty sweet deal. I'm from canada, and most of the time they'll charge you after using 1Gb. That said, it may not sound like it, but when you get going, you'll find 10Gbs is a lot. Like, unless I'm trying, I don't even use 1 gigabyte of data on my phone, and that's in a month of fairly decent usage. We all wish for unlimited, but at least you actually are getting a good deal out of it

I think verizon was first to come up with 4G LTE, 'cause I have it, i get service anywhere, and they don't do that charge thing your talking about.

Hahahahaha. Yeah, it's really good to rant sometimes and release those bottled up emotions. Anyway, I'm Pinoy but haven't heard of 4GE LTE Mobile Network. *Feels bad now* But I do thank you for this information. I see your point about how wretched this new network is but yeah, like you said, atleast we're catching up with technology. 'Hope you're alright. There's been a lot of flood lately.

times are hard and companies are greedy just how it is, best of luck to ya! :wave:
naruhinalovr Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
let me fix that for you: Times are hard BECAUSE companies are greedy.
SquishyXforXever Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
depends on a number of variables, not all companies are greedy. Most of our companies are seen greedy because they can't compete over sees due to taxes, and labor is 10x cheaper; so they got to get their profit somewhere. Any without those big evil companies thousands would be out of jobs so we kinda need them. That being said in this case, it's just stupid greed :P
naruhinalovr Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
Nobody has a freaking job because the "overtaxed" corporations are sending all the jobs overseas instead of supporting our country. They've already moved out of my area so there are literally thousands of people without jobs, including myself, roaming the streets almost daily looking for them. I blame the stock market; companies just keep trying to raise their profits indefinitely, when that is impossible.

That's spectrum crunch for you! You can't really get a good deal on big bandwidth when the providers know they're running out of spectrum.

You should file a complaint to Smart about the 4G LTE mobile network.
Core-Point Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2012
" like getting a new super fast ferrari car and you can only drive it for 10 kilometers"... Its more like getting a fast car and it being on concrete blocks... and your just able to start it up and pretend like your gonna drive, lol.

Anyways, it kinda sucks, I don't really get angry about anything any more... Its just like "Oh.. more shit to deal with, deflates a little bit more".. I guess I just don't have the soul to get upset anymore because it just doesn't accomplish anything.

Good luck with your phone situation though... maybe you'll find away to bring in more revenue for yourself and make it work out..

On that note.. DAMN LATENCY and DAMN UPLOAD SPEED... and damn the no competition.

For a company to be called Smart, they actually retards. They only give the "good-sides" of the product and not show its drawbacks.
phoenixdragon Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2012
Not Philipino and not where you are from but...I was talking to my mom here a week or so ago about my phone, and how I've upgraded it twice from when I had my Blackberry Pearl. I've made sure that everything was free, and that I wasn't going to get charged more..

She said something the effect of not changing my plan, like...ever...because of reasons such as this. Like, I get unlimited texting and data, and if I switch, that'll all be gone..because they don't offer it anymore.

Really bullshit, that, housephones are going out of style, but they are charging so much for all the shit on cell phones.

*Hay naku...* That's why we have to be SMART knowing anything and everything under the SUN, before such costs ruin our GLOBE :icondragonheheplz:

( Offhand, wondering if they still need one to sign a waiver for the consumer to sign if the item they're about to buy doesn't meet their expectations... )

The price of surfing in the Philippines... definitely not fun at all :faint:
