Globe is launching its Tattoo Black, Globe LTE mobile broadband service. Globe is offering two plans:
- Tattoo Black Plan 1799 - Plan 1799 comes with free USB dongle and runs at speeds of up to 28 Mbps with a 12 GB cap.
- Tattoo Black Elite 2499 - Plan 2499 comes with free USB dongle and runs at speeds of up to 42 Mbps with a 15 GB cap.
You have the option to upgrade the device to a SuperStick for a minimum additional charge of only P150 a month. The SuperStick is a WiFi capable USB modem which will allow you to share the connection with up to 5 users.
Coverage for now is limited to Makati City.
Smart Communications launched its own LTE Service last month, which is priced at Php3,500 a month for 10 GB of 42 Mbps connectivity. Smart does over wider coverage areas for now covering Makati City and several other locations in Metro Manila. Still, it looks like Smart may have to rework its offering.
