    I'm actually thinking of download the update via external links,servers etc. Our Internet Service caps us and leaving us with atleast 100kbps of internet (download and upload speed combined) PLDT. So any external links?

    Did I understand the question right? You want to download the update but having problem with your internet connection, being capped.
    Have someone download the update and put it in a flash drive.

    As Jsnc mentioned, you can ask someone to download the installer it from you or borrow the installer if they haven't deleted it yet. I also have slow connection at home so I just borrowed the installer from a relative.

    correct me if i'm wrong but you are saying that PLDT is your service provider and you are capped? I don't think their fixed line is capped.

    To answer your question:

    you could ask someone to create a bootdisk for you, I can make you one but you're too far from me :(

    I have an update here. It sized 5.66 Gb. A bit lower than what mac store is showing which is 6.17Gb. How can I assure that it's complete? Can it damage my mac when i use this ElCapitan update?

    You can try coffee shops that have wifi and if you get lucky they have a fast wifi you may only need to buy one cup of coffee :D

    Where did you buy your Macbook? Why not ask them if you can take it to their store and update it there? Haven't tried it myself but see if they're gracious enough to let you connect to their WiFi and download El Capitan. I've been to a couple of stores that sell Macs (PowerMac and Switch) and when I use their display models to browse, they generally have good connection speeds.

    I just recently bought a second hand macbook air 2013, it is no longer under warranty but looks good and almost brand new, but i need to use xamarin and xamarin only works under el capitan, do you think i can bring this to power mac/switch and ask them to upgrade it for me? How much is the fee if ever they accept the job?

    Glorietta gives you 1 hour free internet per day, but it's very very fast. you can try if 1 hour is enough to download the 6gb installer. otherwise, you really have to ask someone to download it for you.

    and i won't trust anything other than the official installer file from the Mac App Store. it's an operating system, you shouldn't install anything even with the slightest chance of it being compromised.

    edit: i just noticed that this was already an old thread haha. TS is probably already updated to El Cap by now, sorry for the delayed reply. haha. :p
