In my area, mas mabilis yung Tattoo Stick kesa sa WiMAX.
3G uses different Frequency from WiMAX.
Kung H+ yung area mo, mas okay ata yung tattoo stick kasi pwedeng umabot sa 7.2mbps.
Hi there, Wimax is is a wireless communications standard designed to provide 30 to 40 megabit-per-second data rates and Globe offers it out at 2mbps for commercial and Residential where DSL is currently not available. The 3G Tattoo stick is using what we called High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA)* is an enhanced 3G (third generation) mobile telephony communications protocol in the High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) family, also dubbed 3.5G, 3G+ or turbo 3G, which allows networks based on Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) to have higher data transfer speeds and capacity. Current HSDPA deployments support down-link speeds of up to 42 Mbit/s.
Determining on international speeds. HSDPA is much better than wimax, even in local speed 2mbps vs. 21 mbps
but globe have FUP having their tattoo stick with 800mb/day while Wimax depends on plan. "My plan 2mbps 1299 is 5gb/day"
Based on reliability, The ping of globe.com.ph on wimax is much stabler than a tattoo stick.
It totally depends on your usage. For me i would pick Wimax as of the moment because they have 60% reliable speed while tattoo promises minimum 54/kbps or 5kb speed*
