After being told on many occasions we  we could NOT get IDD on our landline (4 request calls to Manila) as we don't have a TIN number (and were pensioners),, :huh:"however my Mrs was paying the account and happened to mention it "again". The counter staff said that's wrong ill fix it. 3 DAYS later  IDD. 

Two days ago... 

An email out of the blue came as quite a surprise. 

I'm often sorry to hear the slow and difficult issues some members have with their Internet connection particularly those a little remote. (were in Cebu) 

So the email stated that we were to receive starting immediately a free speed upgrade to 30 mbps (up from 20) at NO charge, and, for the month of February only, a further increase to 50mbps (the top plan. Now i don't know what prompted this. 

And not I'm not gloating, it was a nice surprise.

Re LAN ports, is it not possible to hookup a 3rd party modem/router instead? You would probably need admin access to the Globe router to get the necessary “handful” of configuration values...

Used old Globe at home router - single port - to extend PLDT fiber WiFi range

I do not have a globe modem

 

I would not be sure if I unplugged my PLDT modem and plug another company modem in that  would work as you cannot buy modems in the Philippines any more.....pldt put a stop to that!  even if you tried to use the existing pldt modem that does nit work now as nine of their ports are functioning it is 100% wifi

Misunderstanding on my part

Had Globe at Home - switched to PLDT Fiber  - my router now has 4 LAN, 2 phone, 2 USB ports - kept old router - bought grade 8 LAN cable to extend range into another area

You can buy wireless  WIFi extenders at Lazada also grade 8 LAN indoor / outdoor cable

Really? Lazada appear to be selling Linksys and D-Link models currently. I haven’t checked for other brands.
