  1. I did search for an up-to-date thread on this topic, the terms ISP and fiber found nothing. Sorry if I missed an existing up to date thread. So here we are. My life circumstances are changing in a way that's likely to allow me to spend a lot more time in PH, but there is a catch; I will require reasonably reliable power and reasonably reliable and performant internet connectivity. All that p*orn won't watch itself after all. I joke about that last, but I do need the power and ISP. Looking at the available carriers it looks like fairly zippy fiber is readily available in Manila
  2. My previous room had an individual PLDT wifi. No longer. Now all I have available is the unsecured hotel wifi with a universal (hotel-wide) password. Is this as safe as it is going to get for my Internet banking online?

  5. This should not surprise anyone on this forum but I thought I would share. http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/489762/scitech/technology/list-philippines-ranks-21st-of-22-asian-countries-in-internet-download-speed Only Afghanistan which has been war-torn for years had slower internet download speeds compared to the Philippines. Even Cambodia and Vietnam are over twice as fast. And the Philippines ranked 176th out of 202 countries worldwide when it came to internet download speeds.
  6. The British inventor of the World Wide Web warned on Saturday that the freedom of the internet is under threat by governments and corporations interested in controlling the web. Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist who invented the web 25 years ago, called for a bill of rights that would guarantee the independence of the internet and ensure users' privacy. https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/25126960/inventor-of-world-wide-web-warns-of-threat-to-internet/
  7. THE Philippine Long Distance Company (PLDT) blamed Wednesday “abusive users” for the slow internet speeds in the country. In Wednesday’s hearing of the Senate committee on trade, commerce, and entrepreneurship, PLDT head of Regulatory Affairs and Policies Ray Espinosa said the abusive behavior of some users slows the internet speeds of the entire network. “The abusive users are detriment to public service in terms of Internet service,” said Espinosa who represents both PLDT and Smart Communications of businessman Manuel V. Pangilinan.Espinosa said that the downloading of movies, which

  9. That's the question researchers from Wellington's Victoria University asked in a study on people's reading behaviour. And the answer is: yes. We might have more access to information than ever before, but reading things online actually has a negative impact on people's cognition. Associate professor Val Hooper and masters student Channa Herath's analysis of online and offline reading behaviour found that online reading generally does not have a positive impact on people's cognition. Concentration, comprehension, absorption and recall rates when engaging with online material were a
  10. Hi all. For those who are interested: from: http://forum.lol.garena.ph/showthread.php?50649 ISPs in Philippines - the real facts and why you should caretl;dr version: (not in order) Ping is not reliable, PLDT sucks, Garena needs to spend more on connectivity, use WinMTR instead of tracert, government needs public IX. Hi all, I'm a foreigner living in Manila that has spent the last 15 years building large scale networks in Europe, with a heavy focus on northern Europe. I apologize in advance that I do not speak Tagalog (yet) so I'm only able to write this in English. I've read a lot

    Fishy PLDT invoices

    Guys, this random foreigner wants to know your view on this subject: Im renting a house with internet, the owner shows me PLDT invoices every month. I did notice in last invoice that I'm also paying for a landline phone, but the phone at home is not working, no signal. I try to call to my supposed number (it's in the invoice I'm paying) and for my surprise it's ringing! So someone is having a landline for free. The owner of the house lived here before, so I guess she was using that landline number as her own, she did transfer to another subdivision, perhaps she did ask to change th
  12. http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-57595529-38/feds-tell-web-firms-to-turn-over-user-account-passwords/ The best/most informative/most accurate/relevant part of the article is the last 2/3 in my opinion. The U.S. government has demanded that major Internet companies divulge users' stored passwords, according to two industry sources familiar with these orders, which represent an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not previously been disclosed. If the government is able to determine a person's password, which is typically stored in encrypted form, the credential could be used
