    Kapag kasi magpapakabit ka ng internet ang pilit na ibibgay sayo yung mahal na plan. Nung nagpakabit kami sa PLDT, sabi nila wala ng slot yung Plan 990 at yung iba pa na medyo mababa lang babayaran. Yung plan na 3K+/month ang pinagpipilitan sa amin. Mabilis nga internet namin,pero sobrang mahal naman ng binabayaran.

      This is 23% highest than the 3.5Mbps from the previous quarter… *higher. Sana pinakita din yung adoption rate ng 4/10/15 mbps subscribers. Makikita na most of us are stuck below 4mbps dahil sa mahal na.singil, resulting to low average and peak connection speeds.

    Yes.. we can get this SPEED… but we (subscribers) cannot afford it….

    wala ehh almost-MONOPOLIZED kasi ang internet eh, how i wish government shell out funds para dito, either they regulate it or they partner up with another player

    kapag wala kasing lumaban sa big telcos, we would be stuck with this plans….

    Somehow we’re seeing a huge improvement from last administration’s 2nd slowest Internet speed in the world to beating that of Singapore’s and Hong Kong’s which are both highly developed economies. It goes to show how driven president duterte is in delivering his pre election promises.

  5. Nagtratrabaho kasi ako sa call center para sa isang Telco company sa US… Medj mura pala atin… Data Allocation lang nadali.
