  1. 1. yes the sim could be changed. 2. They said that there is a 50 gig limit and if that is reached, the speed supposedly drops down to 3 mbps. 3. The original contract at 799 was started in 2012 and it was just upgraded Thursday. I don't know when the 10 mbps became available, but there was nothing but the 799 available the last time I checked about 18 months ago.

  3. Province of Cebu, Municipality of Asturias, Barangay of Owak, between Balamban proper and Asturias proper.
  4. Actually I had them install an antenna when they were here, but I get 3 to 4 bars with the antenna and 4 to 5 bars with the modem sitting in the front window. I think that a large mango tree at the neighbors partially blocks the signal to the antenna.
  5. I have Globe LTE for 1299 in the Province, my plan is 10 mbps and surprisingly the download speed is consistently 10 +
  6. You can handle it online at: https://www.pacificcross.com/ If you really want to visit them, then: Pacific Cross Philippines - Cebu (formerly Blue Cross Philippines) Address: Avagar, Molave St. Cor. Escario St., Cebu City, 6000 Cebu, Philippines Phone: +63 32 233 5812
  7. We (USS Repose - AH16) collided with an "oiler" while refueling and ended up with a 6 foot gash just above the water line while off the coast of Vietnam. We ended up in dry dock in Subic for 6 weeks.
  8. Tracks of US Naval ships are secret and not released to the public.
  9. There is a watch (shift) starting at 0000 and ending at 0400 and the next watch is 0400 to 0800. So typically mealtime would be 0330 to 0430 to catch both watches and prevent a plethora of mealtimes.
  10. Not likely since it happened at around 2:30 AM local time.
  11. The missing sailors have been found dead in the damaged area of the ship.
  12. The container ship, while Philippine flagged, is owned and operated by a Japanese firm. The captain is listed as Ronald Advincula. Gross Tonnage (G/T): 29,093 tons Length Overall: 222.60 meters Flag: Republic of the Philippines Built: 2008 Captain: Ronald Advincula Crew: 20 seafarers Cargo: General cargo Ship Charterer: NYK Line Shipowner: Dainichi-Invest Corporation They are saying that the 7 missing US sailors may not have been lost at sea, but might possibly be trapped in the damaged areas of the ship.
  13. Try using a VPN with a US server.
