Most people who wanted to go to Boracay ask these questions:
– Is there an internet available in Boracay already?
-is there 4G or LTE connectivity in Boracay
-How is the internet in Boracay
The answer is: Yes
Made a speedtest and used the nearest location to ping from Boracay Island, see image below.
The download is about 20mbps download and 3.85 Upload via Smart 4G/LTE mobile hotspot. I was pretty much got suprised as well! Probably due to the recent ASEAN visit held in Boracay where telco needed to install and boost up their capacity last 2016.
Globe’s Go Wifi are also available in some spots. Image taken at the Bamboo Lounge besides #bansbeach resort.
Hope this helps.

Diving and snorkeling Boracay is a great destination just to relax on the beach or get a relaxing massage at one of the many places directly on the beach or in one of the massage SPA.
If you are up for partying, you are also at the right place as Boracay is probably the most visited, and in the high season the most crowded place on the Philippines (#LA Boracay). Also choices regarding food or nightlife are widespread
If you are into wind- or kite surfing “Bulabong beach” (at the opposite of white beach) might be your preferred destination.
If you are worried about Food, don’t be! There’s even Starbucks, Mcdonals, Shakeys, Army Navy, Yellow Cab just to name a few well-know fast foods around the world. If you’re a picky on the menu choices, never worry again coz the island is full variety of menus from a mexican taste, Japanese, Korean, Halal, chinese and ofcourse Filipino dishes which you must try.
Bans Beach has no Breakfast! And its okay. Why? coz you can easily find and choose the breakfast you want unlike any other Hotels which will serve you Fixed Menu or buffet dishes that doest really spice up your tongue anyway. So, its best that you get out, walk around in fact just at the corner of Bans Beach is the Bamboo Lounge which serves fantastic, mouth watering dishes at a cheap cost…really!
