Globe's Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini: Internet Speed Comparable to A Race Car

I have been a loyal Globe user ever since I got a phone (it's a maroon Bosch phone, I still remember), and although I stayed as a pre-paid user, I am happy with the services and perks Globe has been offering to its consumers. I first contacted Globe when I wanted an internet connection (I can't believe we even live through dial up connection) to inquire about their internet services. At that time, there wasn't available line or connection yet in our area, so I had no choice but to avail of the DSL services my landline provider was offering then.

Until broadband services were introduced (then comes Wi-fi - abled gadgets). Now, Globe has another treat to the market - the Tattoo Toni Lamborghini. It is not a car but a stick, and its speed can be compared to a racing car, as it is 5x faster than the regular broadband sticks. It is the first service offered under the 4G mobile network, and uses the global HSPA+ (High Speed Packet Access). It is the first and biggest in the Philippines with sites in Mandaluyong and even not-so-commercialized areas in Navotas, Caloocan and Valenzuela. It is also expanding in other cities and areas in Metro Manila.

Dong Ronquillo, Head of Globe Tattoo said, “Finally, the wait is over. Our subscribers can experience the real 4G technology with the new Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini, the pioneering offer under our portfolio of 4G services. We have partnered with car company Lamborghini to brand our latest Tattoo offer. Lamborghini is known for producing the fastest race cars while Tattoo is all about providing the fastest broadband speeds.”

“We are very excited to introduce another innovation from Globe and provide our subscribers with the fastest mobile internet connectivity they thought was never possible. True to our promise of superior customer experience, we are bringing 4G closer to our subscribers, right here, right now with Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini.”

Although I mostly use my computer at home, I am excited about this service especially that I am thinking of resurrecting my old laptop (which is not yet Wi-Fi enabled). It would be a big help for me if I can use a broadband internet service with a fast connection especially when travelling. In my next trip, I wanted to create blog posts on the same day we visit places and experience new things; and share pictures with my friends in Facebook. If I get real fast internet connection, that would save me time (and memory), so I would have more time to explore things during our trips; and I would not get stuck with my laptop and struggling internet connection.

The Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini is only available at Globe's newest post-paid plan. For 2,199 a month, subscribers can enjoy unlimited surfing with high speed broadband access using the Tattoo Tonino Lamborghini broadband device. It also includes free 200 text messages to Globe/TM.
