My Globe Broadband Latest Speedtest

I encounter problem with my globe broadband dsl landline plan 1295 few days ago. My globe broadband lost internet connection last Friday August 6,2011 at around 2:30 in the afternoon. I thought it would only last for few hours because it normally happens with globe broadband all I need is to restart the modem and wifi router and everything goes back into place after that. After 6 hours of no internet connection I decided to call their customer support at 9pm to report my concern. As expected their reply is “there is an ongoing system enhancement in my area” and they requested me to monitor until 24hours. The whole Saturday I still don’t have internet you know what my globe broadband connection was back on Sunday at 8:30pm.

Before I encounter the internet connection problem I normally have average of 120Kbps (Kilobytes per second) download speed and an average of 45Kbps upload speed. I got curious if their excuse of having system enhancement is really true so on Monday morning I do some speedtest. I use the Metro Manila server hosted by Skybroadband on various hours which I think the net is congested and during the time that there are few users.

Here’s my latest Globe broadband speedtest:

    I use smartbro, the fixed wireless on my home, and my tests range anywhere from 12kbs to 1 meg, but the fluctuations are huge. I download most of my movies from the internet, and the average movie takes at least 4 days, the average speed is less than 15kb per second. Is there ANY company here that offers TRUE broadband? Coming from the US, which I made the choice, so I have no one to blame, I was getting 25-30 mb per second on fiber.

    I know there is fiber all over Ormoc City, but it appears that they either have not turned it on, or don’t know how to use it, for the price I pay monthly, these speeds from Smart are PATHETIC. Globe is even worse, if that were possible. PLDT is a great alternative if you want service one day of the week.

    When using that site shown above to do speed tests, looking at the global averages, these companies should be ashamed of themselves. Not one of them has customer service, the technical staff know about as much about digital services as I know about quantum physics.

    I used to install fiber systems, both interior backbone, or straight to the work station. I also installed outside plant, true laser single mode fiber. This was 10 years ago, I know the price of fiber has dropped dramatically. And if one of these companies would get off it’s butt, they could dominate the market with fiber, offering true broadband internet, HD tv, and phone, all on a single line. SKY is probably the only company with the intelligence to achieve this, but unless you live in Manila or Cebu, you have ZERO chance of getting their service.

    All in all, the Philippines is pathetic when it comes to internet/TV services, charging diamond retail prices, for what amounts to lumps of coal.
