    Im having some issues now with the SMART Bro Prepaid kit.. connection drops every 5-10mins.. signal is great but after a few moments.. Boom! No connections at all, totally crap! I've tried to bring my kit in our office but still no luck.. Its been 3 days na after I upgrade my HDD to 500GB.. Do you think its related? But I don't think so.. I'm hesitant to call SMART..as usuall, i will hear those promises over and over again like what happen with my PLDT DSL before.. do you think it's time to switch??

    I wish SBW avail their signals in Bulacan..

    @Stevezone: It's not the HDD upgrade. I've had the same no connections nonsense from SmartBro. I've been to the Wireless Centers in MegaMall, SM San Lazaro & SM Sta Mesa. Same "nagflufluctuate yung signal po" nonsense. If by their claims, they can't keep a reliable 3G signal in that many places, it was time for me to move past Smart. And their suggestion of using the available GPRS signal to connect was laughable.

    yes, thats what i'm thinking.. same old stupid answers! I think its non-sense if you'll try to argue with them.. i've been there as well with PLDT, anyways, they have the same system 'coz they're a corp right? Same System = Same Crap.. so i guess its time to move on and ditch this kit and move over with Globe or Sun.. but Sun is not an option 'coz im here in Bulacan..

    and btw, sorry for the foul word.. i'm just disappointed..

    Globe Tattoo has served me well. At least here in Cebu City. I occasionally get up to 1.2mb/s on tests using speedtest.net. Like SmartBro, it snails during peak hours. I find Globe's signal to be more consistent even though I have locked it to it's fastest signal.

    It is just so irritating that most of them boast of nationwide coverage etc etc when they do not even have 3G signals outside of Manila. This wasn't a problem for me during my more than 15 years stay in Manila. But now, im just 1 1/2 - 2 hours ride north of the metro, I can't even get a decent 3G signal.

    I bought a globe (which in our area has the better 3g) signal, but 9/10 I will not be able to connect.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one suffering from this "fluctuating signal" by Smart Bro. One minute its running fine and the next it stops to a standstill. and to think they used to charge on a "block" basis. their recently advertised per minute charging helps soothe the irritation but it's still the same unreliable service. there are even times when there's just no service despite the strong signal indicator.

    would anyone know if sun works here in san pedro? planning to shift but don't know if the portable dsl would work here.

    what i dont like about sun is when you load 150php it gives you 6 hours of load, sure it is cheaper than other providers but it is only valid for 3 days.. and the 300 php gives you 24 hours of load and is valid only for 10 days...

    so i plan to switch to globe tattoo, it is much costly but at least globe's 150php load is valid for 45 days..
