    Dear Philippins Macusers, best wishes from France !

    My wife and me would come in your nice country in a few months, for rent a home for a long period (6 months to 1 entire year), before buy something and install definitively in Philippinas. During this time, I need a VERY GOOD and very stable DSL provider, for be able to continue to work with Europa and France (I'm graphic designer, and teleworker).
    I should need a broadband access of the best quality, price is not really important.

    Could you establish a TOP 10 of the best providers in your country ?

    Thanks in advance for your answers… And see you soon !

    BayanDSL for me.

    Quick Service
    Consistent Connection
    and if my memory serves me right, they are the first to re-establish connection when the fiber optics cable (in Taiwan i think) were damaged by an earthquake not so long ago.

    Perhaps it would be prudent to use two different DSL providers connected to a load-balancing router.

    I don't think the Philippines has anywhere near 10 DSL providers.

    Cablelink for me. Never had a problem since more than a year ago. When PLDT dsl had slowed down last christmas, mine was running at full speed, hehe. Was able to skype to a lot of friends overseas.

    Globe Innove should be on your list of DSL providers to consider seriously.

    Advance bienvenue to the Philippines!

    Enlighten me on the "load-balancing router" please. :)

    And yes, I'd suggest you get two DSL accounts just to be sure. I use Bayantel DSL. They fix any problems within 24 hours. Unlike the other competitor who could take weeks. ;)

    Simple explanation is: One router with two DSL providers (like a cellphone with dual SIM) - if one is down, the other is still up - so your connection is uninterrupted and you don't experience drop-outs. D-Link's DI-LB604 is one example of this router.

    Been having problems with PLDT and Globe Innove that's why we switched to another provider.

    My suggestions would be (in order):
    1) Eastern Telecom - Never had any downtime. This is what we use in my former company.
    2) Primeworld Digital Systems - Their connection is top notch however they only offer corporate accounts.
    3) Bayantel - They're pretty decent. Howewer, they only cover the Quezon City area and some parts of Makati.
    5) Bell Telecommunications - Stable connection. Customer support is very helpful.

    It depends. It's better to ask the are where you're having your internet installed. For example, I have good connection for SmartBro in the South area while SmartBro sucks here in Pasig/Mandaluyong area. PLDT is great here in Mandaluyong area but quite a headache in Muntinlupa area. While Globe in Mandaluyong area, they gave me great connection for 3 months and then the next 4 months was absolutely horrific.

    Wow… Thanks a lot for have enlighted me with your opinions gentlemen…
    I have an idea now of the majors companies. I don't know for the moment where I will establish, but it will be a pleasure. And for my router, I think I will take with me my "livebox" (france telecom router) : don't know if Philippinas providers are "mac friendly", and I prefer to be connected in ethernet.

    @ solowork : thanks for your message of welcome.

    @jalka70

    First of all Welcome to Philmug and to the Philippines.

    I'm using PLDT MY DSL for about 4 years already because of my location.

    I'm in the heart of the capital Sta.Ana Manila near Makati.

    So far sometimes they failed but in over all okey.


    You have to consider the location most providers they don't have a better connections or signals with certain areas.

    I suggest that you get (two providers)

    I suggest PLDT DSL and BayanDSL/SkyBroadband to be the top two choice, so far, the most available ISP in all area is SmartBro, but I suggest that you use it as a second backup connection. If you are uploading Gigs of data, I suggest SkyBroadband which has the highest speed for home users.

    Also, welcome to PhilMUG!

    Personal use, my best bet is PLDT DSL
    Business - Eastern Telecom.
