    Man, internet speed here in the country is such a joke. We who are still here in the country shouldn't even bother to post here anymore. Sobrang nakakahiya.

    Provider: Converge
    Advertised Speed: 20Mbps
    Actual Speed: 16-20Mbps
    Cost: P3,500
    Monthly Data Limit: Unlimited
    Delivery: Fiber

    Just had it installed yesterday and so far I'm pretty happy. I live in Greenhills and for the price I was paying for with PLDT (8Mbps advertised; actual was 5-7; lately it's been 1-2), I am getting more bang for my buck -- but of course the price still doesn't compare to those abroad. Download speeds have been consistently in the 2MB/s to 2.6MB/s range. Another plus (at least initially) is that as I was having my fiber installed and called their customer service, I actually got to talk to a network engineer! PLDT would usually just give you a customer rep and give you a ticket.

    Anyway, I hope Converge remains consistent.
