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:

From the globe broadband speedtest above it seems there is really huge improvement from my internet connection. You can make this as your reference if you want to subscribe to globe broadband plan.
