I think Sky is now providing DSL services. Have you tried applying to them?

if kahit ganyan lang expectations mo sa pldt dsl, i think hinde ka naman magiging kaaway ng pldt..

my friend is on pldt dsl and nakaka 250+kbps siya during peak hours 400+ if off peak hours.. some minor disconnections din but hinde naman siya mahilig talaga mag net kaya wala din siyang pake.. hehehe. para sa kanya as long as nagagamit nya whenever kelangan eh solve na!

Diba 384Kbps lang ang plan 999 ng My DLS ng PLDT?

Ok yung sa Bayan DSL na plan 899. Kapag 10pm to 10am 768Kbps siya, then 384 Kbps siya sa mga time na hindi nabanggit. Sa PS3 ko siya ginagamit, and ok naman, walang DConnection.

Smartbro, 1mbps?! Anong plan gamit mo djrayant?

Sa akin, sabi ng smart ia-upgrade nila ang connection dito sa area namin ng 512k pero until now, 388+ kbps lang max connection ko. Siguro, depende lang sa lugar ang upgrade nila..

Shucks, di sila fair sa mga subscribers nila. :evil:

kasi kinocompare ko siya sa mga dial up prepaid cards
malapit na kasi presyo sa pldt

eh kung at least x4 ang bilis . . . puwede na

:-)

eh kung nagbabayad ako ng thousands of pesos sa 2mb connection
tapos patak patak lang lumalabas sa gripo ng pldt
magagalit talaga ako

Trick advertising lang yan!

Hit or miss lang siya actually... may iba lucky enough na pumapalo sa ganung speeds... pero yung iba, makakakuha lang ng excuse na "maximum speed po yan, not necessarily laging ganyan".

Sheyah right.

But... wala tayong magagawa since PLDT pa din ang pinaka-ok, IMO, na provider.

kahit dito sa North America eh "up to" ang ginagamit nila. kasi hindi naman consistent ang speed ng connection. minsan mabilis, minsan mabagal. ang masama dyan, ligtas sila sa complaints kung 100kbps ka ang. sabi nila up to, so sakop lahat from zero to 1mbps

Ang difference naman sa US is that more common ang cable internet kaysa DSL.

Tapos napaka-bilis pa ng cable nila compared to ours.

Sa atin, napakataas ng latency. Ack! Di mo maaasahan

Ako naka-globe broadband. Okay naman speed niya kesa dun sa isa (smart). No kidding, pero dito madalas umaabot ng 500kbps speed ko kung di gaya nung dati na nasa 256kbps max lang naglalaro.
