Globe Visibility Speed Tests

It is rather tempting, the thought of connecting to the internet wherever you are. But before jumping on the Globe Visibility bandwagon, consider the following:
Globe Visibility Network Coverage
PhilMUG thread on Globe's GPRS / 3G / HSDPA (Visibility)
The green light (HSDPA) sometimes flicks to blue (UMTS) every few minutes, long enough to disrupt your connection and your surfing experience. So people say that while Globe Visibilty is faster than PLDT's WeRoam, PLDT's connection is more stable.
A more stable connection means you'll have a happier browsing experience in a moving vehicle.
Someone in Baguio used Globe Visibilty and experienced only 49kbps downstream (about double the speed of a dial-up connection). But when they configured their Huawei PCMCIA card to use 3G by default (instead of GPRS/EDGE), they started getting 321kbps downstream, which is about the speed of a DSL connection. Or perhaps even a bit faster.
Is Globe Visibility worth it? Perhaps. If you will use your mobile internet connection to check e-mail, blog, or even surf a bit when you're not in a deadspot, then it's probably worth it.
I hope Globe increases their HSDPA coverage soon, though.
