Just recently, Bayan Broadband started to offer a new wireless internet plan on their CMDA network starting at Php699 per month- a lower price compared to Globe and Smart.
The service utilize a USB dongle similar to Globe Tattoo or Smart Plug-It. But it’s EVDO not 3G. (EVDO stands for Evolution-Data Optimized, a telecommunications standard for the wireless transmission of data through radio signals, typically for broadband Internet access).

Another plan for this broadband service is the Plan 512, which cost Php999/month @ 512Kbps. Sir Yuga of Yugatech.com revealed that what Bayan Broadband claimed to be “True Speed“, is more likely to be real. I personally don’t have the chance of doing a Speed Test since the service is not available here in Cebu. The speed test conducted using 2Wire and Speedtest.net, showed a promising speed approximately 512kbps! But if you think this is always the case, do try to check also the signal strength of your location.

I wish we could have Bayan Broadband outside NCR region, but I guess it’s unlikely to happen, at least in the next few years. What do you think?
