one is unlimited at 20mbps the other has a datacap of 300GB at 50mbps.
Plan 1899 No.1
20 Mbps no data cap (unlimited)
Plan 1899 No. 2
50 Mbps, 300 GB data cap
Thank you @jetan and @motoflux - both can have a landline with it?
landline is mandatory.
The downside of using the landline included in the Fibr plan is when there is a power outage, your landline won't work.
use a backbattery power like UPS.
hmmm, will PLDT "speed plan" cut the internet if I exceed the GB allowance per month?
Yes, once you have fully consumed your data allowance & you can only surf the net if your plan resets or if you purchase their booster package (additional data on top of your 300GB allowance per month).
I was in Manila the entire week... Globe seems hopeless...
Called them, turns we should have a 1Mbps plan which my mom (and her helpers) only use for FB, Messenger and Viber (occassional video calls). Lucky days will give us .3 download .1 upload... But that's when we're lucky. It's not even fast enough for Grab in the morning.
Technician was there and changed the modem and router but still no improvement.
Here's my dilemma...
My in-laws used to use PLDT. It was so bad they stopped paying it while in was under the 24month window. They're happy with Sky...
I've seen so many bad reviews with Sky!
Do I sign-up for a higher plan?
PLDT Unlimited (3Mbps) - I think it comes with a free landline which my mom prefers. Even if I only get 30% of the advertised speed, its still 1Mbps!
Globe 1299 looks tempting... 10Mbps (again 30% will mean 3Mbps) plus free landline and free calls to Globe mobile phones (please correct me if I'm wrong)
What do you think?
Just stick with PLDT-DSL, 3Mbps with landline. Its true that costumer service sucks on PLDT but they provide right and proper speed. I don't really get why you are getting the 30% of the advertise speed, the best thing you can do, is go to the nearest PLDT office and complain during your off days at work.
Sometimes PLDT screws for at least a day or two, but in the end, the product they are giving is worthy of your penny.
I've been paying for Plan 1299 for almost a decade, starting from 512kbps years ago now to 3Mbps.
The scary part about that is how it can change at any time. One day they might just decide to omit that part entirely in an effort to further push volume boost sales.
Globe At Home (Broadband) subscribers as of late have been receiving updated SMS messages regarding their volume allocation—which gets sent out when you've reached around 80% or so of your overall usage—and instead of advising them of the reduced speed, they're mentioning the newly updated volume boost add-ons.
This is not necessarily an indication of what's to happen but at the same time, it's certainly not something that can be crossed out just yet.
I've sent a message to Converge as suggested earlier to check if our place is covered...
500/month additional fee is not so bad considering it will make my daughter and sister happy during their visits to my mom...
If not, then I go PLDT.
I hope you guys don't mind me hijacking this thread, but we're currently looking for an internet provider for our cafe(kiosk) in Estancia Mall, we prefer wireless(for minimal paperworks with mall admin). Main use would be internal communication between us and our staff and monitoring of store via our CCTV feed. Would the wireless router that accepts sim cards be okay?
Has anybody tried Eastern Communications Evo DSL? Being offered a DSL+telephone package 6GB at P1,053 per month. 10GB is at P1,389. McKinley Hill area.
Does anyone have a pldt fibr installed in a condo setting?
I have questions on the installation itself. My router is located inside my room, and I'm planning to have the pldt modem placed there as well.
1) Will the installation crew be able to make steps (drill holes, extend cable, etc.) to accomodate this?
2) Should I ask PLDT to check out the unit first before scheduling installation
I asked PLDT customer hotline, the agent said YES on the first question.
the best option would be to have pldt check your place if serviceable without the need to drill holes or extend cables, which will be subject to pmo approval.
but if the router in your room is connected via an ordinary landline cable, then pldt can use that line to install the pldt "fibr" connection. as per this post:
Old article, but just saw it shared in FB...
Our Internet is Fast, We Just Can’t Afford It | Yugatech
And yes, Philippines has fast internet... It's just expensive compared to our neighbors...
Sharing an interesting article about our slow internet:
Still not an excuse for our high internet rates or for poor customer service.
There's another internet service provider, Converge Pure-Fiber-X https://www.convergeict.com/about They claim that they don't have any Data Cap unlike Globe. They're new to this busness about 2+ years. If anyone has tried them out would be good to share your experience with them. The plan they offer is landline plus modem so it's wired internet. They don't have wireless internet.
I would like to see data on how many subscribers cannot make monthly payments on time.
This may be the reason why Internet is expensive to compensate "system loss" due to non-payment or late payment by other people.
