I’ve been on dial-up for about more or less than two years. I’m not really that much of an internet geek so I’m a bit contented. Maybe because I feel that my ISP is faster than others (download rate I think is 4.75 kbps) though I can’t and I won’t recommend it because, generally, it sucks.
Those were the dial-up days.
Since we can’t afford to have a postpaid telephone line, we have no choice but to apply for a prepaid landline – before it was Telesulit but we were advised to convert to Telepwede which uses the so called PLDT “all around card” Pwede card. At first, it was convenient because we can load it for as low as 30 pesos and since it’s an all around PLDT card, it can also be use as PLDT Vibe card.
It was okay before but since I need to be online most of the time because of my freelance work and because Telepwede keeps on disconnecting every 30 minutes recently, I decided to apply for a postpaid internet connection.
Hello Broadband Internet!
My first choice was Globelines Internet because they have a promo of 1.5 mbps for 995 PHP/month but our house (location) is out of their coverage area. (We were just a few meters away from the boundary) T.T Second choice was PLDT DSL, but it’s a bit expensive so I landed applying for Smart Bro, which, I heard, is not a good choice.We applied for the Bilis Kabit promo so we can get a Smart Bro connection after 1-2 days but the installation guys arrived at our house after 3 days! Tsk. Tsk.
So far, I don’t have any complains with the connection. It’s just that since I got used to dial-up that now I don’t know what to do with unlimited internet. lol
