Now that Globe has MyFi and Smart Bro has Pocket WiFi, is there a possibility of having a portable pocket sized WiFi for Sun Cellular? There’s no such thing yet as of date, but I think it’ll not be long before it will be available.
Out of the 3 networks, I am using Sun Broadband as my Internet provider because of stability issues. I already did a pocket WiFi version for Sun Broadband a long time ago. And I even did it inside a car while driving around Makati. Connected were a friend’s netbook and an iTouch at the same time and both experienced good connections with only having to reconnect for only twice in span of more than 2 hours. What you need is a Sun Broadband sim card, a WiFi enabled phone and a 3rd party software WiFi sharing application like JoikuSpot.
What I did is insert the sim card to my Nokia N97. Download the Internet settings for Sun Internet, replace the APN to fbband and just connect. I use JoikuSpot to connect the other gadgets to my phone and share Internet connection via WiFi. That’s it, my version of pocket WiFi/MyFi for Sun Cel’s Broadband. No need to pay an expensive price of around 7K for a router. But the downside, my battery went full to 3 bars after depleting some of the power out of the 1000 mAh battery.
