This will be an awesome news if you’re eyeing to buy Globe’s Tattoo 4G Prepaid Superstick. Previously priced at PhP3,495 during its launch in February 2013, this mobile wifi device which can power up to eight devices is now available for only PhP2,895. That’s less than PhP600 from its introductory price!
The Tattoo 4G Prepaid Superstick is powered by Globe’s 4G technology – the first and the largest in the country. Globe has already enabled 4G network in most areas in Metro Manila like Makati, Mandaluyong, Manila, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Paranaque, Pasay City, Pasig, Quezon City, San Juan, Valenzuela, Taguig and Rizal. Soon, more areas will be added to the 4G-enabled list, and as Globe promised, such network empowerment will lead its subscribers to move millions. You can check the status of the progress of the network modernization in your area on this link.
We would like to thank Globe for providing a unit for testing and review. Installation was pretty straightforward: all we needed to do was put on the sim and battery, installed the driver for initial setup and configured it through its neatly designed web-based admin panel (through 192.168.1.1 default router IP).
One thing I noticed which is quite confusing – although Globe is marketing this mifi (mobile wifi) as 4G enabled, the preferred network ticked on the admin panel is locked to 3G only. That’s something that we need to check with @JoyceOfGlobe or @KenOfGlobe how we can unlock it so it can support 4G network. Conversely, I will update this article once I got an advice that worked. Stay tuned as well for our unbiased review and incremental posts and tweets about how this mifi works. We believe that although that the unit we’re going to use is provided by Globe, it would also help them better their service if we provide a highly objective and reality-based review.
