PLDT myDSL Upgrades anew




This is probably the second time PLDT myDSL upgraded their bandwidth offerings this year. Just saw an ad at Manila Bulletin that their newly re-branded residential DSL packages are getting a bit of a boost.

Here are the new bandwidth speeds:

myDSL Xperience
Php 999/month
from 384Kbps to 512 Kbps


 

myDSL Xcite
Php 1,995/month
from 768 Kbps to 1.2Mbps

myDSL Xcel
Php 3,000/month
from 2Mbps to 3 Mbps

Must be real tough competition going on we don’t know about.

Heard that PLDT had a 7% drop in profits compared to last years. But just how much of their revenues are coming from them being a DSL provider?

    PLDT dsl still suck though.

    My friend who have an internet cafe lost revenue because it took PLDT to repair his business dsl in 1 month.

    When I still have PLDT dsl, my bandwitdh suck, intermittent connection and worst of all NO INTERNET for 1 WEEK. Im a VOIP engineer with CCNA and CCNP certs. You can only just imagine how their customer service rep responded when I said look here dont tell me what to do in my end because I do Network Design. please fix the connection in your end. it went on and on for 1 week until I asked for a supervisor and told them that I recorded all my phone calls to their customer service and I dont want any pldt products to my house and if they attempt to charge me for that sucky dsl I might just sue them not the other way around.

    hay buhay kelan kaya magtitino ang PLDT

    Must be a response to the upgrades made by Globelines Broadband with their most basic package speeding along at the 512kbps mark.

    I’m enjoying the new speeds and the satisfactory customer service. :)

    Well, its true! a tough competition between Globe and PLDT! Since Globe Upgraded their bandwidths to 512 for 5 pesos lesser than PLDT. I thing that globe broadband has an edge still on PLDT is its stability, Waived Installion Fee, and NO phoneline Required!

    Now Bayantel has been quite ever since this moves, sana they adopt the usual commercial prices, para may equality. ngayon feel ko lugi ang magpakabit ng Bayantel kasi 256 lng for 900 peso, just add 100 you get half more bandwidth, though for 900 pesos my burst soeed ka na to 512 Kbps from 10pm – 10 am..

    KALOKOHAN huwag kayo papa uto sa PLDT. 384kbps to 512kbps imposible!!! 999 plan for 384kbps pumapalo lng sa 148kbps wala pa sa kalahati ng binabayaran nyo. tapos sasabihin nila na mag uupgrades sila SUS! ang dapat sa kanila ninanakawan ng kable para malugi na ng tuluyan yang bwisit na PLDT. pati na ang SMART sister company lng yang dalawa… try nyo yung mga bago ngaun na broadband and wifi mas my kwenta kesa PLDT

    Saw a glossy flyer last week advertising PLDT DSL 999 at “up to 1mbps”.

    It’s really easy for PLDT to up the numbers when they don’t care about their existing client base, specially since subs are already tied to them for a year and subs most probably do not have a choice, Bayantel or Globe not being available in their areas.

    My connection has been running on super slow for 3 weeks now. Funny thing is it slows down around 8:00pm – I suppose when call center agents start working on their east coast accounts. Clearly a case of bandwidth throttling where Globe redirects precious bandwidth to higher demand, higher paying customers such as the call centers. Should be ok though, except they are using bandwidth previously allocated to a customer segment to serve another – most people would call this stealling!

    Well, these people obviously do not know the power of the consumer… so send your hate mails to the bosses of Innove…

    Oh and did you know that Manny Pangilinan actually responds to each and every complain that he gets when he still owned PLDT? Never get that from the bosses above. To think that MVP is so up there… interesting.

    Enjoy!

    Simula po ng nag pldt mydsl kami, ang bagal mag respond… friendster at myspace lang, kailangan mo pang kulitin ng 10 clicks para lang mag respond.

    My dad talked to the costumer service, gagawan daw nila ng paraan, pero wala parin… Ako na tumawag, sana naman magawan ng paraan. Sayang bayad.

    I believe ok naman PLDT eh, kc suki ako ng mypad internet cafe. Mabilis naman dun.
