SM Megamall Launches Wi-Fi Service Today

After the prior successful Wi-Fi service launches in other SM Malls in the past few months, SM Megamall follows suit with the rest of its Sy-owned mall family. The earlier ones include SM Marikina, SM The Block, The Podium, SM North Edsa, and SM Bacoor.

However, compared to all the other Wi-Fi service quality, SM Megamall's Wi-Fi service today was not upto par.

Philcom Corporation, SM Megamall's Wi-Fi- service provider, might be having some technical difficulties or the bandwidth simply can't handle the load of today's bloggers/beta testers.

This may also be partly due to the 80% rollout completion of the project.

Whatever it may be, sadly, it had to happen today.
It suffered a measly speed of 100kbps download speed according to measuring site Compared to household PLDT DSL999 connections which avergaes 1000kps, one would crawl with a YouTube upload or download.

Hopefully, it would improve as they get some realizations out of this user beta-test session; or after it is already 100% implemented. Nonetheless the common user can be thankful for the technology and SM Megamall's free Wi-Fi service.
