SUN Broadband Add-on Plan 649 for my Galaxy Tab 10.1

January 19, 2011 - Expecting that my Galaxy Tab 10.1 (P7500) will arrive anytime this day from WidgetCity, I decided to went at SUN Shop Festival Mall (Alabang) to inquire and subscribe to SUN Add-on Plan 649.  You should have a regular postpaid plan excluding Easy Postpaid and East Phone plans.   You can enjoy a discount of P150.00 as long as you subscribe the unlimited internet plan (from a regular SUN Broadband Wireless unlimited Plan 799 - PHP799.00)

I presented one valid ID and affixed my signature on the application forms.  After few minutes, I got my SUN Wireless Broadband SIM (internet 64-K SIM only, no calls and text capabilities).  Together with that is the Alcatel One Touch X090S Broadband Stick which has the same specifications with Huawei E1550 (old model of broadband stick used by SUN Broadband Wireless).

The Customer Service Officer asked me some questions referring to the coverage of SUN Broadband.  I said that my area is covered by HSDPA.  SUN's promised burstable speed is 3.6 Mbps.

Sun Broadband Wireless Speed Test via Galaxy Tab 10.1
Downstream: 3540 Kbps = 3.5 Mbps
Upstream:  362 Kbps = 0.3 Mbps

In Alabang, the average speed I am getting is around 1 Mbps which is pretty good.
Here in Imus, during off peak (around 5AM), I am getting as high as 3 Mbps but during daytime, my speed dramatically went down to an awful 50-300 Kbps.
