Improving internet speed/reliability


Recommended Posts

 

Smart has been great...we had one problem in 3 years plus...and when we had the one problem, they came out to the house and replaced everything

 

I've heard that Smart and PLDT are one in the same, and like Globe, if  you want to contact them, you've got to have

a smart card or PLDT land line....when we move, I'll dump Globe and get smart....unless I can find a way to get satellite

internet access...though I've not heard of it here...

I used to pay around 1700 peso a month in Japan for cable TV and internet. As a gamer I got more that my money's worth.

we have pldt 

customer service non existing 

speed is good when not turned of by some bs 

discount for not having service takes months to get 

its extremely over priced 

but it is the only high speed internet there is so what can you do 

pay the price or by news paper to read :)

all the sticks are the same  more of less if you not in a big city the speed is poor

I live here in Mandaue and I use Globe Tattoo home WiFi.  My speed is 4.3 mbps night or day.  Very consistent.  I pay 3000p per month and that includes the home phone.  If it slows at all, I just reset the router and instantly back up to 4.3 and that happens rarely.  I've very pleased.

Did Globe come and install hardware in your home?  I need more info on this.  I used the little tiny Globe unit that plugs into laptop USB...it was portable.  Is that what you're talking about or something else?  WE need a landline home phone so your idea sound GOOD TO ME.

No, Globe comes to your house but be wary, they use contractors and they will try to rip you off.  Got my wife for 2000p and when you complain to Globe, they just tell you to contact the contractor like they have no responsibility.  If they try to charge you anything "extra", just tell them you have to call Globe to confirm and they will usually change their tune.

My globe is online again...after 2 weeks they fixed it...the problem was that when  PLDT connected someone else in our apartment building they cut my line!!  Stupid people....

 

Overall I'm happy with globe...basic service p999 a month.  I bought my own wireless router as the ones from internet providers are usually junk...like their modems...I've burned out 2 so far...so when I decided I wanted wireless I just bought a router...

I have Globe Torque (DSL) 10Mbs but they have faster and slower plans. Comes with free home phone and land-line with unlimited calls local and to Globe and their other company land-line and cell phones nation wide. Also free Tattoo stick with 40 hours free data a month on it. Installation and WiFi router with 4 ports was free. Took them about three days to install it after I signed up.

I guess this indicates that Globe DSL is based on PLDT wiring... Correct?

 

If so, is it also fair to assume that reliability and internet speeds from Globe and PLDT are going to be fairly similar in the same location..?

Actually, I was living in an apartment building at the time and PLDT snipped a line outside.  I don't know if they run on the same line...doubtful, but how knows...
