Experience Fast Internet Connection Daw With Sun Broadband Wireless

Finally, I have internet na. Yipeee! I’m done with snatching signal from my neighbors LOL. Kaka-nosebleed mag-decrypt ng password noh. Haaay, am so haffy. I was actually rooting for Bayantel sana, kaso hassle mag apply. This one is super stress free. Just present any valid ID na may address, pay 3299pesos and voila! No power supply for the modem, walang madaming cable connection…super convenient.

Sun Broadband Wireless is a personal broadband internet service using Sun’s wide GPRS/EDGE/3G/HSDPA network. It’s compact, fast and easy to install, and it’s affordable too, only 799 a month. This service offer a maximum speed of up to 2Mbps daw. Wow, that’s too good to be true. So I ran a speedtest and here’s what I got:

Toinks. 632Kbps upstream and 246Kbps dowstream. Anyway, this is so much better than nothing! I haven’t heard any problems with it from my colleagues who are using the same service, we shall see in the next days to come. So far, it’s doing good naman, kahit parang mukhang laruan lang sya hahaha. Watch out Pepe and Pilars, here I come! I’m back blogging 24×7 LOL

    1. actually, maganda sya. no probs at all…and pretty fast too…portable, you can bring it anywhere you go. kaso lang, pag naging congested na…dahil sa dami ng subscribers, malamang sa malamang…pumalya din. i hope sun is doing something about it as early as now

  2. wow, thanks malen for the valuable blog you have regarding sun cellular broadband connection. may promo sila ngayon ng P999 yung 2-and-1 package na may kasamang plan 350 yung plan 799 ng broadband connection…hmmm, mukhang decided na akong kumuha ng backup kasi yung pldtdsl namin ng sis ko lately pumapalya…laging down…
    salamat sa review! :em50:

    1. gusto ko sana yang 999 plus phone ang kaso wala naman akong textmate eh hahahahha

      this is perfect for laptops and on-the-go people like you and me. btw, i never liked pldt, solid bayantel ako, never had prob with it.

  3. To get the best speed with Sun Broadband Wireless:

    While diconnected from the service, go to –> TOOLS –> OPTIONS –> NETWORK –> NETWORK TYPE –> select WCDMA ONLY…. This way you get connected via HSDPA at ultra-fast speeds of up to 2Mbps…

    1. tnx to this post…just got my sun wireless a couple of days ago…at first the connection is fine but on my second day my connection went slow(like a dial-up) and got only EDGE SUN in my network…i think that’s slows down my connection(EDGE Network) now I got back the speed by setting my network to WCDMA only…tnx

    2. hello. its nice to see a helpful blog like this for Sun broadband. I am already subscribed to this service for two months now and here’s what i got: on the 1st month the speed was just super fast but on the 2nd month (June) the connection suddenly became dial up speed. How I noticed? Im a heavy downloader and now I download on average 60MB-100MB an hour. Last month I averaged 200MB-300MB per hour.

      Any special settings the one you mentioned? thanks thanks

  6. pki ayos namn po ung connection ko kc pag maglalaro n kmi ng online games npuputol n ung connection…send nyo s e-add ko ung solusyon sna mgawan nyo ng praan un………….

  7. Hi, I recently applied for the bundled plan as I already have two Sun post paid lines. a few days later, sabi ko WTF! as na decline daw ako! tawag ako agad and sabi lang nila declined. I found out from my brother who also applied (and declined) that it was due to our income??!! their reasoning is that with our income bracket, we could only afford two P350.00 plans!

    Now, we are in the 25-30k income bracket. baka gusto nila sampalin namin sila ng pera. not to be mayabang but think of it, if ganun ang income namin and we’re applying for the lowest plan, sino na lang ang makaka afford ng mga services nila? and to think they sell themselves as the cheapest provider. and to top it all off, after the decline, they offered me the easy plan daw nila. and that plan… costs more that what i originally applied for! DUH!!!!

  8. im very frustrated as of now sana may solution, i try to borrow my friend sbw (sun broadband wireless) for a week. ok naman yung connection and speed, then i decided to get one sun user din kc ako postpaid, ngayon bkit ang bagal ng connection ko. i have it for almost 2days na ganon parin. just want to know ano nangyari may problem ba sa sun? im from san juan, why yung sa friend ko ok naman yung hiniram ko. grrrrrr email me blyx1221@yahoo.com. salamat

    1. Me too…taga-San Juan din ako. I applied for this kasi yung kasamahan ko sabi mabilis daw. Pero nung first day palang ng gamit ko…ang bagal na. I can’t even watch movies. Yun pa naman sana main aim ko. Help me naman please…Is there any other way my internet connection can speed up? Sobrang bagal kasi…hours bago matapos ung buffering. Please help.

  9. When I first got my SBW geez, madadala ata ako sa bilis ng service. Imagine, nagbburst siya up to 250-300kbps per download ko except torrents ala dial up ang connection dun. So I was a very satisfied customer then I even have my boyfriend got one for himself na rin kasi for the price napaka-convenient/practical until one night, April 27, 2009 ampotah it dropped to 4.75kbps max na lang ang download ko at napaka-consistent hanggang ngayon June 4, 2009 ganon pa rin. Mga peste, manlilinlang ng customer 100+ times na ko tumawag ng Sun Hotline I have the call escalated to a supervisor 5x na ata or more in fairness wala pa rin nangyari. Pumunta na ko sun shop to expedite the process wala pa rin.

    So sa mga nagbabalak kumuha ng Sun Broadband Wireless if you want a dialup connection after a month, helpless technical support service at useless/misleading “broadband” internet connection, go for it. Anyway, P649 additional lang nmn if you have Plan 350 w/ suncell unlimited connection pa dabah?! Un nga lang tied kayo for 2yrs else bayad ka pre-termination fee kapag di mo na talaga ma-take ang service like me but of course I’m taking it to the next level na. Spread the word, it will save you time and money! Kung carry naman ng budget go for globe or smart or pldt weroam na lang at least sa globe 35kbps ako, sa smart 50kbps pldt haven’t tried pero ung dsl nila the best, very consistent ang speed! Naka-assign nabandwidth sakin it 1.2mbps kahit 1mbps lang supposedly ung nasa plan ko. 🙂

    Bulok ang sun!

  10. I heard that mabilis “daw” ang SUN sa Manila? pero infairness okay narin po ung download speed and upload speed nyo. Sabi mo nga, okay na ung ganyan, kesa sa wala. hihi

  11. guys guys guys! warning lang….kung gusto nyo ng maganda(excellent speeds) for the 1st month tapos dial-up speed the next. subscribe na kayo. when i got my sbw 2 months naman siyang mabilis.. download nga lang ako ng download ng divx movies ah.akala ko ganun lang talaga ang speed. ever since last month hangang ngaun.. lower than dial up na ang speed ko. possible reasons eh congested network, downtime.. etc… possibly kapag itinawag nyo to sa tech support nila ganyan ang sasabihin. take it from me nagtrabaho na din ako sa ISP. inoobserve ko yung connection and may 1-2 hours lang in the morning na yung bilis eh gaya ng dati,oo i could still download my divx movies & my connection still soars ONLY around 7-9am manila time. taga pasig po ako. nandito pa nga ako sa galleria ngaun para itest kung area problem lang eh. hindi pala… to what i think, its with the subscription.sun limits bandwith given to “old” users to give way to new subscribers. yung hindi ko maintindihan eh sobrang limitation naman yun. buti nalang wala akong kontrata with that forking company.

  12. Don’t get Sun. It’s pretty slow and useless when you need it fast. It’s only ok early morning and almost useless at night with only about less than 100 kbps at night.

  13. baka ung speed depende din sa location. i also tried using my postpaid sun sim, gamit ang e156g usb broadband. mabilis ang connection hsdpa as in one click lang. sulit na sulit dahil walang idle time.

    sinubukan ko din ung usb broadband ko ng prepaid sim, ganon din ang connection. hsdpa pa rin, super bilis. kaya lang napuputol yung connection yung 30 pesos sulit na sulit dahil hindi siya katulad ng globe at smart na once nagdisconnect automatic na 10 pesos ang mabawas kahit wala pang thiryty minutes. ang sun tuloy tuloy pa rin ang connection hanggang maubos yung actual time na 30 minutes for 10 pesos. kahit may interruption ang internet connection, yung load mo hindi nauubos agad.

  14. pag tuloy tuloy na ang bilis ng connection, gegetz na rin ako ng additional plan dahil sulit ang bilis niya. mag-aadd lang ako ng P649, unlimited na (tama ba?) hehe

  15. waahhh, la kwenta yang sun broadband!!kala nyu lng yan, ganyan dn kami nung una, 2wang 2wa kami kasi soooper bilis.

    kaso, after a month or so, nagsimula na ang mga connection problems.

    madalas walang Signal.

    Connected sya, pero d ka makakapagbrowse.

    ASAR!!

  16. sayang, nagpaplano pa naman akong magSBW. Though, nakakasagap naman ako 11Mbps sa kapitbahay kaya lang pag nakaoff na sya di na ako makapagnet. kaya balak kong magSUN internet coz i heard a lot of positive reviews sa service nito. anytime anywhere puwede akong magonline, pero mukhang nagdadalawang isip na ako. parang magtitiis na lang ako sa pagsagap sa kapitbahay hanggang sa bumuti ang serbisyo ng mga network yan!

  17. WARNING!!!! WARNING!!!!! WARNING!!!!

    sa mga nag pa plano mag-subscribe sa SUN WIRELESS BROADBAND na Unli P799 monthly, first two months ok ang speed at connection nila then after nuon li-limitahan na nila kayo,mas worst saakin ,mabagal na disconected pako every 2hrs…sa fairview Q.C location ko partida malapit pako sa cellsite ng sun pero ano?…WORST!!!

  21. hayyysss….. just got my SBW today…. first few hrs ng connection, okay nmam, speed test shows up 1.5mbps average download speed… still testing it though. trying to open different sites, so far, they’re mostly okay, but i just found out i can’t play resto city and farmville in FB… waaaahhhh… ung sinasabi nyo na pag limit sa bandwidth… talaga kaya ginagawa nila un? hay, i hope i dnt get disappointed at di ko i-regret pagkuha ko nito…

  22. ay sus…. naknang pesteng dami ng problemang hatid ng sun saken…. palaging disconnected kahit di naman… syet nga eh…. tapos ke bagal bagal pa… biruin mo 680KB file na video nakalagay eh will be upload in 33:56’00” . ketagal nun…. wag niyo na ituloy ang pagbili….

  23. what you all should have done to begin with is to listen to the sales person that was assisting you. because they warn you about shared downloading time… if you exceed anything above a said certain amount of mbs the network automatically reads your sim and then throttles (slows) your connection speed. no mobile broadband in the world will allow you to keep on downloading without any limit. dont be so excited like a kid and not listen then to find out that it wasnt you expected. for those complaining pls pls stop look and listen before crossing the railroad. plus there are so many ways to get around this problem…. (warning!!!!) you can downgrade the or openline your huawei modem, if downloading you can download a download partitioner program so the download would be faster…. if all else fail buy another SBW sim card… so much complaining… changing your tsp/ip dont change squat either cause your still using the sim number that is given to you….. wake up!!!!!!

  24. SBW user din ako. I`ve been using it for 7 months now (or should i say pinagtiya2gaan ko na siyang gamitin for 7 months now.. hehe).. nung first few months, ok siya.. mabilis. nakakapag-online games nga ako eh.. pero nung tumagal na, siguro after 3-4 months, ang bagal na.. parang dial-up nga. putek! kainis..

  25. Hello! Subscriber din po ako ng sun. Kainis kasi po lagi nadidisconnect. Tingin ko may piling lugar na may malalakas na connection. Kapag gabi wala na ung net ko. Hindi ako makagamit pag gabi. Siguro guys pag may sun lang talaga gagana toh.haha.. Kadalasan nga ko 0.17 kbps lang ang connect eh. Bagal, sobra..

  26. kaasar…same Globe and SUN Broadband are junk!…too slow and can’t even download anything…even a byte…ung SMART nd q pa nmn na try…pero I prefer na mag wired nlng kau…like DSL or anything…K?

  27. napaka walang kwenta ng sun.almost 1 1/2 months na ako nag co2mplain sa internet connection ko..panay follow up nlng daw nla ung problem..nakaka bwisit na sila..wag na kau mag sun broadband..mag sisisi lng tlga kau sa service na bnbgay nla..

  28. woooooooooooooooot.naiintindihan kita admin pareho tau ng problem 100% signal pero speed ay up top 300kbps madalas ummabot lng 200kbps….eto speedtest ko na na tsambahan ko lang yan medyo ok.hahaha!guys pede ren ba message nyoko sa facebook:Angelo Louie N. Jimenez(ung naruto na picture)kung may alam kau “PAMPABLIS”ng SUN BROAD bAND OR INTERNET.na GUMAGANA.

  29. read the fine prints…sun, globe, smart…

    … *UP TO…maximum speed

    …sites, network can be congested

    average sustained speed?… can not be guaranteed

  30. im a sun bro wireless subcriber. so far maganda at mabilis naman ang connections nya. sa pag DL umaabot sa hapon at madaling araw ng upto 88KB/s nakakapag youtube din ako ng maayos sa piling oras lng. pero sa ibang oras, mejo mabagal umaabot lng ng 15KB/s upto 22KB/s pero ok pa din ung speed na yun. All in all maganda ang takbo ng service nila dito sa Quezon City near SM north edsa ang place ko.

  31. hahah walang kwentang sun broadband na to. ka ka subscribe ko lang last june 14, 2010 P799/month unlimited. pinagsisihan ko tlaga kung bakit pa nag experiment pa ko sa network na to, you tube or even music download walang kwenta, buti 3 months contract lang pinili ko so antayin ko nalang matapos ipapa disconnect ko, balik ako sa smartbro P999/month yung may antenna super ang bilis wala me masabi. nasunog kasi place ko dati kaya close account yung smartbro ko.

  32. One word to summarize all:

    Sun Broadband Wireless is nothing but just a piece of crap!
    amf, ano ba yan, lagi akong nadidisconnect!
    regretful ako na ng sign up ako nito buti na lng 3 months contract lng ung 799 plan >:D
    2 SBW plans pa nmn ang kinuha ko
    1 for me and 1 for my dad pero gosh, wlang kwenta
    napakalaki ng difference compared sa fix Smartbro Wireless Broadband
    nakakainis lng at itinigil ng smart and pag allow sa mga customer na mg sign up ng FIXED wireless broadband, the best among all broadband

    WAG NA KAYO MAG SISIGN UP NG SUN CELL WIRELESS BROADBAND!
    PAG SISISIHAN NYO EVER

  33. i am a blogger, and i’m using pldt dsl, then i switch to sbw kase laptop na gamit ko.. sabi up to 2mbps ang speed, try ko sa sun kung ok kahit .9mbps ok n sa akin. kase puro streaming ang blog ko. nung nagtry ako i-test sa pc nila oo ang bilis. then kumuha ako ng 799/monthly. pero ang bagal talga 34kbps-300kbps lang ang speed. gusto ko sana magtry sa smart. ano sa palagay nyo guys? mas ok kaya ang smart?

  34. P.I na SUN yan… binebenta pa.. nalinlang ako.. mura nga.. eh prang ung bbyaran mo per month dito.. 1hr. lng sa computeran… hnd nmn nkakatipid.. nbabadtrip lang ako nung pnilit ko pa GF ko na SUN nlang kesa GLOBE.. mag sara na kayo.. SCAMMERS!!

  35. sa umaga lng tlga sya mblis.. pero im not really contented.. ksi online gamer ako.. mdming tao na nagsasabi na mbilis dw kesa sa lhat ng wireless broadband.. pero before ako kumuha ng sun.. nang hiram ako ng globe broadband … mbilis pti download speed pwde na.. prang dsl tlga.. pero bumili na ko ng sun.. super disappointed ako… kala ko mas bibilis pa.. un pla 50x mas slower kesa globe.. grabe..

  36. im from davao, and depending on location the speed drops during daytime, but i don’t experience downtimes esp i play online games. during midnight till 6 or 8am my speed shoots up to 3mbps. so i think your location is the problem. and try to check on your settings. it might help. instead of recommended used the preferred connection like the wcdma connection.

  37. for me walang pinagkaibhan ang smart bro sa bun brodbang.. mxdo slow.. d nga mkapag loading ng speedtest. may babagal pa ba dun >.<

  38. WAG NP KYO MG-SUBSCRIBE S SUN BROADBAND WIRELESS, WALANG KWENTA at SCAMMER lng ang 2MBps n speed, ang makuha nyo ay 0.2MBps lng!!!

    Excited p nmn kmi ng misis k n mgkaroon ng SUN Broadband wireless, nung unang araw plang napakabagal n ng connection 100kbps or 0.1MBps lng ang nakukuha nmn speed s NAVOTAS hanggang s ika-3 araw, ginawan n daw ng incident report hanggang umabot ng 3-araw wala namang nangyari ganun din kabagal ang speed!!! WALANG KWENTA ANG TECHNICAL SUPPORT NILA at ANG SABI SKN 2 LNG DAW ANG SUPERVISOR NILA!!! WALANG KWENTANG KUMPANYA!!!

    ung CONNECTION PARANG DIAL-UP LNG, wg kyo maniwala sa advertisement nla. MAG-FILE N KMI NG DISCONNECTION!!! Walangyang yan, kaya pla npakabilis i-processoso ng application nmn at i-no-autodebit p s credit card nmn ung palang siste ang modus-operandi nla n automatic n ma-charge sau ung bill kahit NAPAKAPANGIT NG SERVICE NLA AT SUPER-BAGAL NG CONNECTION NLA!!!
