I recently paid a visit to Globe to check if there are any technical specifications required for a USB extension cable to be used for their Tattoo USB modem as the one that I’ve recently bought from CD-R king (Price: 30 pesos) was not working on my laptop. They told me that the cable only needed to be USB 2.0 compliant. We then tested the cable in the Macbook at the Globe center and the modem was successfully detected by the broadband management software (this nearly made me want to buy a Macbook. haha). During this visit, I was lucky enough to speak to a more knowledgeable after-sales agent.

I wasn’t able to get the name of the sales agent though. I wanted to commend him for knowing what he is selling – unlike his colleague.
