SM Megamall Wi-Fi Service Redeems Itself

Just last July 5, SM Megamall invited us to beta test their new free Wi-Fi service for its launch and the connection occasionally failed during that 2-hr period of 3pm to 5pm.

They mentioned though that the roll-out of the technology was still only at 80%. We tested it then at the lobby area of Building A.

This time around, it was SM Foodcourt's turn to have us test the same service on the foodcourt area of SM Megamall a while ago.

They passed with flying colors with speeds reaching 1MB/second, and I didn't have to use my baon - Sun Broadband USB. The speed was up to par with my standard basic broadband needs which include sending email proposals with .pdf attachments, plurk, multiply, facebook, and monitoring of my blogs including, Digital Manila, and the very new

However, we have to take into consideration that there were only about 20 concurrent beta-testers for this event; in contrast to that of the july 5 which involved more than thrice this number.

Hopefully, this rate of Wi-Fi speed would be consistent all through out other days and hours in SM Megamall, more specifically the SM Megamall Foodcourt area which was also celebrating its Filipino Food Festival in all SM foodcourts nationwide. :)
