Anyone else running PLDT WatchPad?

I got this DVD installer in the mail last week for PLDT WatchPad. Been seeing the ads as well on TV lately and was wondering if this is a free or paid service from PLDT to all its myDSL subscribers.

The Typhoon that busted my DSL Modem

In the years that typhoons have hit Metro Manila, none have dealt much damage to electronics at home. That’s until Typhoon Frank hit Manila this week-end. It’s all Frank’s fault – the metrowide blackout busted my DSL modem.

How’s your DSL in the Philippines?

Joey Alarilla asks “Do we actually have broadband in RP?”. Yeah, we do, it’s called Digital Substandard Lines. *heh* Been hooked up on DSL for about 4 years now. Before that, I languished in crappy dial up connection. I started with Greendot at 256Kbps for Php2,750 for about a year before I moved to PLDT […]

PLDT adding charges for data transmission?

Andre Cruz tipped me on this breaking news on Inquirer.net about “PLDT to charge for data transmission via its landlines“. THE PHILIPPINE Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) has said it will start charging fees for data transmission using its basic telephone landlines. Through what it calls the alternate voice data line (AVD), subscribers who use […]

I feel sorry for this PLDT CSR girl.

A guy sent me this WAV file, apparently a recording by an irate PLDT myDSL customer talking to one Customer Service Rep. The one who sent me is also from another Call Center too. Can I say viral? Download here. Play here: powered by ODEO If indeed this recording is real, I feel sorry for […]

What are the odds of 3 DSL providers down?

Yup, all 3 of them are down. 1) PLDT myDSL is down — no conneciton since 10PM last night. NO dial tone on the phone lines as well. 2) Smart Bro is down — slower than a slug since last night. Only 3 out of 20 pings get a response. You’re lucky if you could […]

This is the former bandwidth allocation for their Plan 1995 which is now at 512Kbps. On top that, their Php788 per month for Smart WiFi is being heavily promoted in […]

Is PLDT reading my blog?

A couple of days ago, someone from PLDT called me up and inquired about my “incessant” issue of not getting any billing notices (not even the disconnection notice) for over six (6) months now. I stopped bugging them about this 3 months ago. I confirmed to them that in the last 6 months or so, […]

Wi-Tribe doubles Plan 1998 speed to 4Mbps

Wi-Tribe has recently (not sure exactly when) upgraded all the speed limtes of all of their broadband plans, including the top Plan 1998 from 2Mbps to 4Mbps. Not bad considering my PLDT DSL plan is charging the same rate but only pulls down 1Mbps (supposed to be 2Mbps or 3Mbps).

How’s your internet today?

I did a quick post over at PTB about Taiwan Earthquake shakes Philippine ISPs. It was in the news all afternoon. I was uploading hundreds of photos in the gallery and what used to take me less than an hour stretched to as long as 4 hours. I couldn’t connect to YM on both PLDT […]

Cost of Fixed Wireless Broadband dropped 90%

Around November 2003, I was living at Bacoor City, Cavite renting a nice penthouse on a 3-storey building one kilometer south of SM Bacoor. I liked it there — the food is cheap, quite subdivision, rent is super cheap (Php3.5k for a one bedroom penthouse inc. water and electricity) and lots of space I can […]

UnWired Philippines: Those were the days.

I never thought that broadband connection would spread this fast around here. My PLDT DSL connection is just Php1,999 a month for 0.5Mbps. It’s nothing compared to the ones in the west where you’d get something like 5Mbps for the same amount. But if you look back 4 years ago, when dial-up was the king […]

We’re Blogrocking again.

After almost two weeks without DSL, my hands are twitching at blogging full blast again. They say patience is one of my bets virtues but the PLDT DSL issue really tested me to the limits. Anyway, we’re off to publishing more posts and do some big time bloghopping in the next couple of days. ;) […]

Setting Blog Goals

Have had less time to blog (and bloghop) due to the recent mishap with my PLDT DSL connection. I have already paid my dues last Wednesday but until today, only the landline connection have been restored; no internet still. Likewise, other blog projects took most of my time while others have been left hanging on […]

Using Smart Bro Rocket on Php200 per 180MB

Since October 1, Smart has switched the plug on their Smart Bro Rocket Plug-It to use volume-based data pricing (same as Always On). The recommended bucket plan is Php200 per 180MB. So I tried it on my Rocket Plug-It to see how much I’d consume in a day.
