Globe Telecom announced two weeks ago that it will launch commercially its next generation broadband service this month called LTE or Long Term Evolution. LTE, or 4G LTE as we see it in marketing materials, is the next big thing in the mobile industry as it offers high-speed data for smartphones and tablets, theoretically, with up to 100Mbps downlink. But like with the earlier generations of network technologies, specifically its predecessors 3G, HSPA, and HSPA+, several internet dongle devices can also capitalize on 4G LTE.
Today, Globe Telecom announced its first internet dongles to support the telco’s much-anticipated 4G LTE network, and it’s called Tattoo Black. And even before the official launch of its LTE service, Globe Telecom has already made its plan pricing details available to the public. The Tattoo Black will be available in two data Plan options: Tattoo Black Plan 1799 and Tattoo Black Elite 2499.
With Tattoo Black Plan 1799, customers can enjoy LTE speed of up to 28Mbps. So perhaps, Globe Telecom may be using the same LTE module for such particular Tattoo stick as with the ZTE MF290. The Tattoo Black Elite 2499 on the other hand boasts a LTE speed of up to 42Mbps, and this particular Tattoo stick probably has the ZTE MF820 LTE module inside.
Globe Telecom also said that customers who would subscribe to Tattoo Black Plan 1799 have the option to upgrade to a Superstick for a minimum additional charge of only Php 150 a month.
Now that we already knew Globe Telecom’s data Plan options for its 4G LTE service, it’s now time for the telco to spell the exact date of availability. Right?
