Wi-Tribe's Newest 4G Technology Empowered The First Yahoo OMG Awards

Imagine you’re sitting in front of your computer, working to meet some deadline. Suddenly, your internet connection got interrupted. You tried closing the other tabs but it isn’t working. You tried to reconnect, but the harder you push; the more you become stressed. You keep wracking your brains of possible solution to speed up your connection, but your patience got stretched to its limit. And you’re about to kill. The next thing you know is you’re using your mouse pad to cool down your overheated head. You started to look crazy, until something popped in the monitor; the stat goes back to life. And the cycle repeats over and over again. Believe it or not, that is exactly what I’ve been through before I attended Yahoo! OMG Awards at the Republiq Bar in Resorts World Manila, Pasay City.

When I heard the event was Yahoo OMG! Awards, presented by Wi-Tribe, I was tickled pink, since it was a timely blessing for me. The night event provided booths with stunning models, entertainment, hi-speed free internet connection as well star-studded affair. Yet, for me, the main attraction was Wi-Tribe’s newest 4G Technology.

 I took advantage of the opportunity to investigate more about their latest product. Fortunately, we were given a chance to interview Mr. Jay Reantaso, Wi-Tribe head of marketing communications. First, he talked about the company's goal, which is to give people satisfaction with their products and services.“This time our product is faster, more reliable and more consistent”, he added. He, then, continued by explaining their Unlimited 4G Internet Plans priced at P598(up to 512 kbps), P998 (up to 1 Mbps) and P1,998 (up to 2 Mbps). Free Modem. No line rental. No activation fee.

As explained by Mr. Reantaso, Pure 4G technology provides the benefits of having unlimited surfing and browsing under consistent speed. With 4G, wi-tribe delivers wired speeds without the wires. It’s completely portable so you can enjoy it at home or in the office. He said, More than 90% in Metro Manila is covered by Wi-Tribe and approximately 50,000 households are now using it. Most of them are residential. But we have customized plans for companies, depending on their need so they can enjoy the pleasures in using a 4G Technology.” He also admitted, “Yes, we encounter problems but they are very minimal. And, our customer service is open 24/7 a week to attend inquiries and evaluate situations". He also added that the company is expecting to expand its coverage within our country. For now, their main focused is in Metro.

Also, to make the deal even sweeter for consumers, Wi-Tribe is having a promo from June 6, 2011 to July 31, 2011. Prizes include 24 months free subscription for 50 winners, 3 months subscription cash back for 100 winners and to those who did not win any of the 2 draw, they will be given 1 month subscription. Each winner of the 24-months free subscription will receive cash back for the total amount that he has to pay Wi-tribe for postpaid subscription. A sure treat! What more could a customer wish for?

For a moment, I began to imagine myself in front of my computer, enjoying the benefits of having fast, uninterrupted internet connection while checking my Facebook, yahoo mails, blogs, twitter account and more, when a blogger friend gave me a quick tap on the shoulder telling me we’re heading inside.

So, there, we watched out for the winners of the first ever Yahoo! OMG Awards. Most of them are from ABS-CBN. Though I’m not a fan, it was such a delight to see hottest stars from the country’s 3 largest networks: ABS-CBN, GMA-7 and TV5.

I had a great time and the event was an absolute success. True indeed, together we are winners as Wi-Tribe supports Yahoo for its milestone of achievement. Not to mention, their generosity of giving away Archos tablet PC with 24 months free Internet subscription. That must be something to try for those who encounter connection problems like I do. Now, I'm thinking of calling back the first person who offered me a Wi-Tribe Unlimited Internet. So if you feel like trying it out, here's the number to call : 31-TRIBE. And, feel free to share your free demo experience with us.
