Sun Broadband Wireless Prepaid P250 7 Days Unlimited is a big waste of money!!!

First of all, I would like to say that I’m totally satisfied with the P50 1 Day Unlimited Sun Broadband Wireless Prepaid.  So I was thrilled to learn that they would be releasing a P250 7 Days Unlimited card.

After purchasing the P250 card, I immediately tried it out.  It was actually okay for the first two days or so.  But after that, the connection starts to drop.  A download that usually takes around 5-7 hrs. is now taking 2 days plus.  Since the weather was kinda grumpy during those days, I’m attributing the dismal connection to the weather — I’m blaming it on the rain, as the old song puts it.

But after a day or so with the (real) sun coming out, the connection speed was still down.  So, being a QA in profession, I tested out a scenario.  I had another SBW plug-it and I loaded it with the P50 1 Day Unlimited.  And then I compared the connection speeds between the two.  I guess the results speak for themselves.  Please check out the screenshots below:

Dismal speeds for SBW P250 7 Days Unlimited

Great speeds for SBW P50 1 Day Unlimited

So avoid the P250 card like the plague.  The only reason to buy it is if you want to have a card with a pretty picture of Iya Villania on it :)

How about you?  What are your experiences with the SBW P250?

  1. bagaman di ako “techie” tulad mo, totoo yang obserbasyon mo pinoyman… ba’t nga ba ganun? anu ba ang eksplenasyon doon? pag ung walang-takdang gamit ng internet sa buong araw na halagang sinkwenta pesos e sing-bilis ng lipad ko ang koneksyon, pero pag ung dos sientos singkwenta na sun broadband, e kala mo tinitigan si valentina at nagiging bato na ang koneksyon!
    sana’y gawan ng paraan ito ng sun!

    • isa lang ang sagot dyan darna girl — kagahaman ang pinairal ng sun! alam nilang mahahatak nila ang mga taong bumili nung P250 na card at kapag nabili na ito ng mga kawawang taong ito, wala silang kamalay-malay na magdurusa pala sila sa loob ng pitong araw na nakakonekta sila rito.

      ang mas mabuti pa ay bumili na lang ng limang tig-P50 na card at mas sulit pa ito! (5 araw nga lang to…)

  2. wew mgnda lang yong mga promo nila nakakainganyo pero ang totoo sobrang bagal tapos paputo-putol ang connections ganon din ang globe.. meron ako SMARTBRO, SUNBRO at GLOBEBRO binita ko na yong dalang broadband mabagal kaya natira nalang smart medyo mabilis pa sa dalawa..

  3. where did you buy the 250 load? available ba ito sa mga ministop or sa sun shops?

    satisfied din ako sa 50/day at 100 for 12 hrs ng Sun, minsan mabagal talaga pero pag non-peak hours, I can download at 200 kBps.

  4. hey.
    im (kinda) planning to buy SUN BRO coz the offers are cheap.
    im from batangas and we don’t have a suncell tower here or something, and a globe tower is really near our house…any suggestion?

  9. pano po ba gawing unli ung regular load kasi pagnagpapaload kami laging regular load ung niloload s amin,, khit sabihin naming unlimited gngwa pa ding regular load nung nagloload s amin dito.. nkakainis..

    • Chulee, try mo magsend ng SBW50[space]09xxxxxxxxx then i-send mo sa 2292. Para ka lang nagshe-share sa sarili mong number. Working sa akin kaso hanggang SBW100 lang yung kaya i-share. Make sure na may extra balance ka kasi may transaction fee na piso yun. Oh, instantaneous nga pala yung activation nun once na ma-’share’ mo na siya.

      Kung LoadCentral yung retailer ng load sa inyo, sabihin mo ang code ay SNXSBW50, SNXSBW100, or SNXSBW250. Yung iba kasi hindi alam yun kaya minsan ako pa nagsasabi kung paano nila ako loloadan ng ganun. [asar]

      Hope nakatulong ako.

    • REGISTER MANUALLY
      1. Reload your Sun Broadband with regular load. Make sure that you’re not connected to the internet using your Sun Broadband plug-it.
      2. Open your Sun Broadband interface on your desktop or program files then click TEXT.
      3. Type i100 for 3 days unlimited internet service or i50 for 1 day unlimited service.
      4. Then send it to 247. Wait for the confirmation message that you are successfully

      Hope it helped ^^
