Not so Smart.

January 18, 2008

I am going to rant, sorry if its too early for this but I will. All week, I have been experiencing problems with our Globe Broadband!! The connection is intermittent and yesterday, it was non-existent..! And today, it is too slooowww…! Right now I am using dial-up.

Not only is Globe’s Broadband service bothering me, also their Mobile phone’s signal is going crazy. I have problems sending out text messages because ~ I just can’t! IF they do get out, they reach the other person hours after the text has been sent. What’s up with that?!

Calls cannot get through, lines are choppy and frankly, it’s irritating hearing that woman in the other line say, “Subscriber cannot be reached,please try your call la-ter”. Grrr.

My friends who are Globe subscibers (Broadband and Mobile) are complaining too. Globe’s excuse? They are upgrading their system. Is this true? Well, it better be! Because I’m tempted to switch to Smart.

    Its funny how we adopt and become attached to information services like that. When my broadband goes out I feel its worse than my phone being out. I can do a hell of a lot more with a web browser than a phone. Plus, nine times out of ten whoever is calling I don’t want to talk to anyway lol.

    i know!! its sad how we rely too much on technology, but that’s the truth! i can’t live w/o it. huhuhu and it kills me to have slow connection. grrr.

    Hi Vannie! This is a timely post because i’ve been comparing internet providers out there. We’re planning to get one next month.

    Others are complaining about Smart BRO and myPLDT DSL too. Bayantel na lang kaya?


    We were with SmartBRO before, it was not so good but they said they were upgrading their system so i dunno how well they are now. my friends who are PLDT DSL subscribers don’t have complaints..i dunno nga eh! huhuhu mag SUN nalang tau?ahihihi

    sabi ko nga sa isang blog friend who’s complaining about PLDT myDSL, lipat na siya ng SmartBRO. i think that’s better than PLDT and globe. anyway naka-pldt din kami and most of the time the connection really sucks.

    uy you’re cebuana pala! im a sponsor at the sinulog pumpfest party series, punta ka dun ha! 🙂 naexcite naman ako to finally know someone who’s in cebu. i want to check kasi if my brand will make a good introduction there 🙂

    boohoo PLDT sucks too?? wala na talagang choice noh? bear with it nalang. ehehe
