    We have Sky Broadband and PLDT MyDSL

    In my experience, Sky Broadband is for surfing and downloading, Pldt MyDSL for gaming and surfing. :) Garena! hehe!

    PLDT MyDSL - Pque Area.

    So far, so good since our lines had been changed.

    And my modem has not been turned off for over a year and a half.

    Perhaps we should give reasons why we say such and such an ISP is the best? Simply listing the ISP is fine; but list why you think so.

    -Uptime vs Downtime? (aka reliability)
    -Upload and download speeds?
    -Cost?
    -Quality of Customer service? (repair/service requests; timeliness of repair; knowledge level of CSRs)

    Perhaps once you see what other people are getting compared to your ISP, you may change your tune about your ISP being the best. ;)

    I have Bayantel DSL on my office and Sun Broadband Wireless at home. Between the two, SBW is better on my experience.

    Haven't used other ISP, we are on PLDT's Plan 1299 Bundled (512kbps) with landline

    -Uptime vs Downtime? (aka reliability)
    My modem and router is on 24/7. and i hardly notice any disconnection. Maximum 2 maybe in a month?

    -Upload and download speeds?
    we're paying for a 512 kbps plan, but speedtest.net results range from 800kbos-1mbps

    -Cost?
    it's cheap considering it's phone and DSL bundle already. plus we're getting twice the speed we're subscribed to ;)

    -Quality of Customer service? (repair/service requests; timeliness of repair; knowledge level of CSRs)
    arrgggghhhh

    BTW..we're located in San Antonio Makati

    I have been using PLDT DSL for almost 4 years. I've had problems with it during the first few months. After the issues were solved, the connection fails rarely.

    yeah, that happened to us too, we're disconnected for i think 3 weeks and when connected, the speed was very slow i had to call the support for almost everyday and i got nothing but the usual 'nagawan na po ng report..blah blah'

    their techs went to our house to check only to tell us that we can pay them 1500 to fix the cabling...i thought that was part of their job?..i asked them to leave and i'll do the fixing of the cables myself ;)

    again i called the support, with the usual blah blah, i didn't put down the phone, not until they gave me a name of the 'tech' person handling my ticket...we talked for almost 20 mins and she can't give me a name

    the next day, a TL of their tech called me and for just less than an hour my issue was fixed...without 'touching' any cables..tsk tsk

    Thanks!
