1 Mbps thru Smart Wifi?

1 Mbps thru Smart Wifi?

It’s called PLDT myDSL-W (as in wireless) … same animal, different bandwidth.

There are 3 residential plans for PLDT DSL-W :

Plan 999 256 Kbps – Php 999

Plan 1,995 512 Kbps – Php 1,995


Plan 3,000 1 Mbps – Php 3,000

Initially available in Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao.

If this baby becomes available in our small island-province of Guimaras, I sure do love to get connected from our little beach over there (ever heard of Alubihod beach?).

A month here, a month there, ain’t bad huh?

    how good is the speed anyway? since both smart and pldt use meridian as backbone or am I wrong?

  3. kzap says:

    probably bad service as usual?

  4. demonhale says:

    Hey I think Alubihod is beside Reymen? Ive been to Alubhod several times, and once in Reymen just this year since my cousins want airconditioned room and a pool table… Well Anyways if Ide known you stayed there I might as well talked with you in person…

  5. Kates says:

    I had a hard time looking for cafes with internet connection in the town of san miguel, guimaras. If alubihod is connected I’ll probably stay there more often. I’m supposed to be there last thursday.

  8. Technical Support Representative says:

    As of the moment, there are ongoing constructions of hundreds of base stations nationwide. This would help to serve other areas that are currently not included in our coverage area. The bad thing is, newly constructed base stations only get signals from old base stations causing congestion which leads to slow to no internet connection in the network. The pipe started to be choked more than a month ago but they are still accepting hundreds of new subscribers everyday. Sorry, I have to say this. I am from Meridian. I just can’t take this anymore. My conscience always disturbs me! T_T

    just stop subscribing to Smart.

    Hopefully tani ma- materialize and that would solve our connectivity probs. Didto sa amon sa villa, bisan linya ka telepono di ka lab-ot. PLDT had been claiming that they have extensive upgrades and modernization on their network. Pero as I could remember, 11 years na apply ko sa landline sa ila wala gid gihapon.

    So at this time mantinir lang ko anay sa Islacom (krone type, wireless man ni, classic type lang hehehe) galing pag mag labay eroplano (alagyan gid abi balay namon pakadto sa madurriao) ga ka DC dayon Internet ko :-(

    I hope it could be in placed soon.

    just stop subscribing to SMART WIFI AND PLDT!! they are frauding the subscribers! i am one of smart wifi and it really sucks! i disconnect my smart wifi attaching the letter of dti to prevent the pre-termination fees. switch to globe or digitel adsl its network is REALLY GOOD than the FUCKING SMART AND PLDT

    I’ve been using pldt wifi since feb and i have not gotten any problems with it though minsan bumabagal yung connection pag 11pm to 1am pero sobrang minimal lang ang effect like mga 160-180 kbps. plan 999 256kbps ang subscribed connection ko pero right now nakaka 380kbps ako. sauyo kingspoint subd and location ko.

    siguro depende lang talaga sa location niyo. i recommend that you consult first with pldt kung may malapit na cellsite sa area ninyo and then from there magdecide kayo kung iaavail nyo yung service. kung malayo kayo sa cellsite ng smart, i suggest wag na lang kayo magsubscribe to avoid frustrations of having good and stable dsl connection.

  13. tukmol says:

    one more thing, mas ok ang customer service pag pldt wifi ang package na inavail. so far, sobrang friendly sila and maayos yung service nila. they would even help you troubleshoot your connection problem or advise you kung may ongoing maitenance sa area nyo

  14. Hi.. This was my post at another site.. I hope we can do more proactive things to make them realize the injustice!

    First time ko mag post and so far ok naman ang smart ah! OK na pasabugin! Kung cno may mga connection sa inyo sa mga NPA etc, malaking sympathy makukuha nila kapag Smart Sites ang tirahin nila! We have to go on the offensive! Marami pa din nabibiktima yang Smart na yan and angkakapal ng mukha nagoffer pa ng FREE 3G service na nakikigamit sa already overloaded internet service natin!! Napansin nyo ba na from Bad service they’ve gotten really worse! Kung dati minsan slow connection, ngayon totally walang connectivity!!! Thats partially because of 3G and of course ung signups they insist on taking!

    Give me all your Sun and Globe numbers and I will create chain letters and hate mail to destroy Smarts reputation!! You can also send me email addresses of filipinos para maikalat tong katarantaduhan nyang mga yan!

    Guys stop na reklamo.. Lets go to war! Make Smart pay!!! Boycott lahat ng smart products, change sims, kahit ano basta do something!! I will!

  16. Mikee says:

    1mbps would be good (though still quite expensive for me). Curious lang ako, now my supposed connection speed with Smart Wifi is 256Kbps but sometimes I go as low as 30Kbps even in good weather. Sometimes to nothing. With 1Mbps kaya, how much bandwidth cna they guarantee? Is 1Mbps guaranteed perhaps minus uncontrollable factors such as weather, etc? Or baka naman, 1Mbps sometimes but 100Kbps most of the time???

    And about Guimaras, all I can say about it is one beautiful island!!! I used to live in Iloilo and back then I look at Guimaras almost everyday!

    ANg Bagal Ng PLDT talaga!

    we are payin 17,500 a month pero minsan bagsak ang connection. minsan mabilis….


    anung magandang connection???

  18. Jay says:

    Hmm… I’ve been reading a lot of complaints about “384 kbps pero actual download speed is 40-something kbps”…

    Please note that what the DSL providers are claiming is in kbps… KiloBITS per second. What the computer displays (during a download) is kBps, which is KiloBYTES per second. The difference is that a “bit” uses a small letter b, while the “byte” uses a capital B.

    8 bits equal 1 byte… therefore, 384 kbps would be 48kBps… syempre medyo babagal ng konti like around 20-45kBps due to other factors. magkaiba ang kbps sa kBps.

    la lang.

    I applied Nov.30 at smart business office at SM Marilao and installed Dec.2,but the bad thing is,they installed an old canopy with old wires.Hope that you people at smart would be smarter enough to think that we are the customers who are paying for your products.Palitan nyo ang canopy ko ng bago at nagloloko ito.

    I’am subscribing Smart Bro plan 999/month, since year 2007-2009 ok naman siya, stable siya sa 40-45kbp/s and that’s good. But now, every afternoon I’am suffering from it’s illness 7-10kbp/s. I don’t know what the effi’n problem is. Pero pag madaling araw, it reaches 90 to 118kbp/s. Sana madaling araw nalang lagi. >.<
