This isn’t my first time to do this. And, I am not the only one blogger who did an speed test from a free wifi hotspot. if you want to check other SM hotspots, you can search it on Google and compare.
Here is a screenshot from speedtest.net during the Internet connection speed test I did here at SM City Batangas foodcourt. Currently, there are five other laptops online beside me, not to mention other smartphones or tablets that are connected too.

Based on my test, it’s has 0.24 MBps download rate which is not a good one. You can maybe update your social networking accounts but you’ll not enjoy watching online streaming videos.
By the way, I looked for some gadgets price list and will be updating this blog about that.
Update 10/24/2011 2:58 PM: After googling, I also found this another blogger who tested this hotspot last May 2010. Check it here: http://www.rickspot.com/2010/05/sm-city-batangas-free-wifi-internet.html Surprisingly, the connection that time was fast!
