MANILA, PHILIPPINES - In this day and age, being online is a big part of every Filipino’s lifestyle. We go online to do research, to connect with friends, to play online games, to share our favourite pictures, videos and music. But most of the time we find ourselves enduring the long wait just to download a file, wait for a video to buffer, or to load photos in an online album.

Tattoo@Home, the Globe-powered internet brand, aims to change all that and make a speedy and consistent broadband connection available to more people. Tattoo@Home gives you a host of connection types to choose from, depending on what you’re looking for. Tattoo DSL and Tattoo WiMAX are already available to most households, while Tattoo Torque comes in selected areas for now, with a growing coverage list.

Tattoo DSL is Globe’s most economical broadband option for its price, offering a variety of speeds up to 3Mbps (megabits per second), designed for households that want a fast affordable connection that everyone in the house can share. With Tattoo DSL, you get a broadband modem with a built-in router that makes setting up your home Wi-Fi network a snap.

Once you’re connected, you can surf the web from your desktop PC, laptop, smartphone or tablet, from virtually anywhere within your four walls. Forget about family fights over who gets to use the Internet; with Tattoo DSL, WiFi makes sharing internet your new family bonding experience.

Tattoo’s resident tech blogger Rico Mossesgeld of technogra.ph shares, “Just minutes after finishing my Tattoo DSL installation, I was already surfing the web on my PC, while downloading apps on my phone an iPad. At the same time, my parents were checking their email on their respective laptops.”

For its part, Tattoo WiMAX presents a convenient solution for homes that can’t yet be reached by wired DSL connections. Powered by the country’s first 4G broadband network, Tattoo WiMAX is available nationwide, making swift internet a reality even in areas without phone lines. Because of its plug-and-play setup, you can literally be surfing the Web within minute, giving a whole new meaning to high-speed Internet.

As for Tattoo Torque, this is the coveted fiber-powered internet connection which gets you surfing at high-octane speeds. Online life will never be the same with Torque’s 1Gbps capacity and its speeds of up to 100Mbps, which let you carry massive amounts of data into your home, like your top movies, music, games and whatever your heart desires.

Rico Mossesgeld explains, “Although the 100Mbps is the theoretical maximum, my Torque connection maxed out at 94Mbps, and even its average speeds of Tattoo Torque were breathtaking, never dipping below 70Mbps even with a full load. This is literally the best Internet connection you can get today in the Philippines.” Tattoo Torque is currently is available at Forbes Park, Bel-Air, Urdaneta Village and Serendra Clusters D & E, with more areas to come.

You don’t need to be a tech-head to see that Tattoo@Home is the best way to stay online and always in the loop, in the comfort of your own home. This is the broadband connection you’ve been waiting for.
