[/caption] The broadband LTE service, which will become commercially available starting Oct. 28, offers two options for customers: Tattoo Black Plan 1799 and Tattoo Black Elite 2499. Plan 1799 comes with free USB dongle and runs at speeds of up to 28 Mbps. Customers have the option to upgrade their device to a SuperStick for a minimum additional charge of P150 a month. Customers will also have concierge assistance, similar to Globe Platinum subscribers. Tattoo Black 2499, meanwhile, promises speeds of up to 42 Mbps. Subscribers will also have a dedicated hotline, priority handling in stores and a personal relationship manager to handle. Dong Ronquillo, head of Globe-Tattoo nomadic broadband business, said during the press briefing prior to the launch that early subscribers can enjoy the LTE service without a data cap until January 31, 2013. Globe said its mobile LTE has no launch date yet, although it has earlier announced it will offer the service in the last part of the year. Curiously, the launch of the Tattoo Black coincided with the announcement of Smart Communications that it has conducted the first mobile LTE test in the country in a demonstration held in Cebu City.]]>
