Smart vs Globe WIFI NAIA Airport

Putting Smart and Globe head to head with their WIFI offerings inside Manila Airport (NAIA).

Both Smart and Globe offer free WIFI inside the airport. Although only the first 30-60 minutes is free and then you have to pay, or change your number / MAC address.

Both are powered by Fiber and have access points sprinkled around the airport.

The speed tests might seem impressive but remember they’re to test points inside the Philippines and often inside their own networks. When you start testing against servers outside of the Philippines, you won’t get such impressive figures.

Thankfully more and more content delivery networks are putting edge servers inside the Philippines which means less traffic has to leave in the first place.

This is my second NAIA speed test video, although in my last one I only tested Globe.
