Quick Thoughts on Oceanic Mobile’s 4G Internet

Quick Thoughts on Oceanic Mobile's 4G Internet
by Nathan Kam

When my friend Ed Sugimoto asked if I’d be interested in test driving Oceanic’s Mobile internet service on its 4G network, my immediate response was “I’d love to, but I’m a long time Hawaiian Telcom DSL customer. Can I do that?” He confidently reassured me that it would be fine, that he’d appreciated my feedback on the experience, and that I’d probably enjoy the mobility of the service. So I graciously accepted this free trial and challenged Ed to hit me with his best shot.

Ala Moana Beach Park/Magic Island

Well, in just 24 hours of using the mobile internet service at various locations around Honolulu, I have to say I’m really liking the experience. So much so, that I wrote this blog post on my MacBook Pro from my car in the Magic Island/Ala Moana Beach Park parking lot today (see photo above).

In the few hours I’ve been playing around with Oceanic Mobile, here’s the things I’m like so far:

  • IT’S FAST! The 4G connectivity is really quick. Streaming from Hulu and watching YouTube videos is no problem. Surfing the web and posting blogs is efficient and fast.
  • IT’S CONVENIENT! The fact that you’re always connected to the internet is pretty awesome. I love my iPhone and the web experience available there. But being able to fire up your laptop and get to work wherever you may be is pretty awesome. I can get used to this.
  • SOLID COVERAGE! Okay, so I’ve only used it at about four locations around Honolulu so far, but the connectivity has been great. I’ve had no issues getting on the 4G network from downtown Honolulu, Nico’s at Pier 38, Ala Wai Golf Course, and here at Magic Island.

I plan to do a more comprehensive wrap-up once my trial is over. For now, you can follow Oceanic’s andhere.com blog to see where I’m using the service and where other testers like me are staying connected.

Finally, a quick question to you. Are you using any mobile internet services? If so, which one and how do you like them?
