    Hmmmm... the deal might have been consummated prior to PLDT's purchase of AA. Knowing PLDT, that contract (between AA and Bayantel) would most probably NOT be renewed after expiry. ;) Enjoy it while you can!

    Is the AA free with the Bayantel P899 plan? When I read the newspaper last weekend it indicated a monthly additional fee for the AA.

    I just unsubscribed from Bayantel due to flaky performance in my area. Waiting for my PLDT DSL to be connected. Hay salamat I already have an AA account or else I would swallow my pride and apply again. :p

    I got feedback from our technician in school that PLDT does not give out already the CD configuration installer they have for PC's.

    Not sure if it will affect the mac

    Then you can demand for the 500 pesos per day downtime that is their guarantee.
    Get a report number from them and inform bayantel at 412-12-12 to deduct the 500/day downtime that they have done to your dsl.

    Bayantel DSL was asking P2,500 for the installation fee since we are not a Bayantel Subscriber (will be waived if you are a subscriber). Might be getting PLDT DSL then..

    Bayantel DSL was setup on our Music Ministry's PC. How can I set it up for use on my mac or Airport Express. Sa Windows may dialer pa sila? Anybody? I'm lost.

    Just use the normal Airport Admin Utility and run through the wizard.

    Bayantel uses PPPoE so it's no different than setting up a dial-up account to your ISP except that it uses Ethernet as the medium of authenticating instead of a modem.

    Hey another query on Bayantel DSL, I noticed this only happens on my Mac, how come when the phone rings or someone picks it up I get disconnected. Doesn't happen when its connected to PC.

    coz I've been with skyDSL for more than 3 yrs now and service is good. Plus if u get disconnected for more than 24 hrs you get a P500 rebate

    Pal,

    Even with the P2,500 installation fee, go for it. Bayantel's service is far better than PLDT. They fix problems within 24 hours. I've had them serve my DSL for two years now.
