Best internet provider in Metro Manila
« on: July 28, 2015, 08:14:35 AM »
Sky, PLDT or Globe?

These are the options recommended to me so far.

Any thoughts?

I'm considering Sky, bundled with their cable service to also accommodate my mother's special request (na magka-cable since bumili ng bagong TV). Pero My cousin said internet service from Sky is bad. Lag, and all the other hassle.

PLDT, now 2 of my friends recommended this pero you have to have landline daw (which is hindi ko kailangan and will cost extra 300 ata a month). Never called PLDT though to inquire if they have dryloop internet service (DSL without landline).

Now Globe, sabi ng isang friend ko okay daw to since mahilig ako magdownload at magtorrent. Pero Globe has always had bad signal from our place.

Any thoughts?

(Taga Sampaloc, Manila nga pala ako)

Thanks!

I can't say, di ako taga Sampaloc, pero para mas may info ka lang:

unless sureball ka na ok ang signal ng 3G/4G/LTE sa area nyo wag ka na mangarap mag wireless broadband. mabubuwisit ka lang.
Sky sucks, period. walang pinipiling area yan.
Bayan also sucks. for the same hassle of major internet providers, they also take up to two months to send a competent field engineer/tech.
PLDT requires a landline connection. So minus points yun kung di mo naman kailangan. Although mas madali makakuha ng PLDT line kaysa globe because of the sheer size of their infrastructure. their customer service is HORRIBLE (they really don't have your transaction records at hand) and their field engineers are as good as you are, as far as troubleshooting internet connections are concerned. Also the hotline is only available during the day shift.
Globe can provide you a DSL without a phone service. However getting the line is pretty hard because of their much smaller landline user base. Globe has excellent customer service, and by CS i mean their call centers. They  have their lapses, but at least you can actually pinpoint which @sshole screwed up your stuff and they have a complete record of all your transactions. Their field engineers arrive at your place faster than PLDT's by a hair or two, and sometimes you get an engineer that actually understands the internet (maybe because they don'thave that many phone lines anyway).

PLDT and globe lang ang mapapakinabangan mo, and depende parin sa area ang speed consistency.
I suggest itanong mo sa area within your baranggay ano ang pinaka consistent.


I avoid pldt though just to say fck em, for they are the reason why our internet speed is so 10 years ago.

@ TS

you have to consider the internet traffic within your area.

in my personal experience (for more than five years) with sky - okay naman.
with the usual subscription of php999 (2 mbps) - fast and reliable. kung nagkakaproblema man - i always had the opportunity to find out what happened through its customer service hotline. ang downside lang - i always found it a challenge to reach a customer service representative during weekends (starting from friday night till sunday night). as in naka-queue lang ako na minsan aabot ng isang oras. if i remember it right - four times lang ako nagkaproblema sa connection (one loose cable post issue, one modem issue) - the rest - payment issues na (pag magpapa-reconnect na ako). yun lang ang pagkakataon na komokontak ako sa hotline nila.

recently though, i decided not to continue the subscription since madalas na akong wala sa bahay. as i'm maintaining a pocket wifi subscription as well - unnecessary na yung subscription sa bahay. doble gastos na eh.  :-D.

Ive been a subscriber of PLDT for 9 years.

Kapag nag down sila, down talaga.. as in mababadtrip ka, at gusto mo n lang gamitin ugn cellphone mo at i-tether sa laptop...

Nagdown ang PLDT like 2-3 weeks. Ay susme, nakaka buryo.

Pero all in all, im satisfied with PLDT. 3Mbps for ~1.8k Php/mo. with Landline. Ayos na ayos na sa akin yan. They give you the 3Mbps Speed.
No problem. Enjoy na enjoy ko ang pagdodownload lalo na kpag pang overnight sesshion ang download ko, ay nako. laptop na ung umiiyak sa akin eh

Ok din nman ang ISP Bonanza, Surfmaxx at Blast internet.  Gusto ko sa ISP Bonanza at Surfmaxx, Sulit ang 100 Php mo kapag madaling araw,

PLDT Vive/Blast.. Good Good. Mabilis talaga. Wala masyadong gumagamit kasi mahal 8 hawars for 100 php

Depende talaga sa area yan. Yung area namin dito sa Batangas ay oks ang PLDT including the service. Sablay naman yung Globe. So it will be good to ask around your area. Yung mga kapitbahay mo if ok ang mga connections nila.

Yup, area talaga. When I was in Muoz QC area, I had bayantel simultaneously with WiTribe, the witribe sucked balls, had it disconnected. I moved to tondo, I had PLDT (this was the best DSL I ever had, minimal downtime, never had any problems with speed). I moved back to central QC, and had the same plan from PLDT I had in tondo, and it sucked balls.

sa simula pa lang nasa ads na nila na capped yung data nila. you will experience high speed internet pero pag na-exceed mo na yung allocated bandwidth mo babagal na.

yung sa globe ang bwiset, FUP and sh1t. buti na lang di na ko subscriber ng globe nung inapply yan.ok pa naman yung package nila na bundled with landline that has unlimited landline to globe mobile calls. kaso pag bibitin ka lang sa internet pucha wag na.
