  1. i got my pldt dsl this day and im starting to hate pldt... :::.. Download Stats ..::: Download Connection is:: 436 Kbps about 0.4 Mbps (tested with 507 kB) Download Speed is:: 53 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (Main) Test Time:: 2009/08/01 - 1:25am Bottom Line:: 8X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 19.32 sec Tested from a 507 kB file and took 9.517 seconds to complete Download Diagnosis:: 90% + Okay : running at 99.54 % of your hosts average (21.94) D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-NBCL94IDS User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090715 Firefox/3.5.1 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) [!] we applied for the plan 1299 whis is supposed to be up to 512kbps... and i can't even access the modem config page... 172 said they are not allowed to provide the modem admin ip address... modem is a ZyXEL P-660R-D1 and the gateway ip address is any help on accessing the modem admin page please guys? thanks a lot
  2. the contractors that came here today that that it's sop now to lock canopy pages once a subscriber asks for a tech support on site... they said it's smarts new policy and because of this my canopy is locked now... lol... and i did not give them any tip since they annoyed me so much... i think they disabled the high priority channel and the x2 rate... this is my speed now... though it fluctuates to 400 sometimes...
  3. tha't's what i always say... but it will have no effect.. instead i say "i have this conversation recorded on my cellphone.. if it is not fixed i will approach everyone in my area who has smartbro and have a sig campaign stating that they always experience slow and intermittent connection and file a lawsuit against you" slightly effective..
  4. i created a user NONE with BLANK password and ADMINISTRATOR privilege... lol anyway this user was present before but after the hell month of my smartbro when i access the canopy i get only the guest page and i asked SIRACOMPUTER for a password and the root is not present also... luckily admin account is present so i recreated none account...
  5. 3G is better than WiFi... remember the days with FBT(Free Browse Tech.) using globe? i was using my n70 as a modem then and download rate never goes less than 50kB/s in 3G mode... too bad globe FBT stopped already... that's why i was forced to subscribe to smartbro.... T-T
  6. first of all PHP799 / mo for 40 hours only is how do we say deceivingly cheap... less than 2 days lang yan... after the 40 hours PHP10 / 30 minutes... this is Smart's answer to Globe Visibility which is tagged at PHP2k / mo for unlimited access... i dunno who would benefit smartbro's plan but the reason you will get mobile broadband is internet anywhere and unlimited internet at that... smartbro may look cheap at first glance but computing the charges after using the 40 hours will not be so wallet friendly... for example average month is 30 days... 30 * 24 hours is 720 hours - 40 hours for the initial PHP799 is equals to 680 hours * 2 for the half hour charging of smartbro is equals to half hour 1360 * PHP10 equals PHP 13600 + PHP 799 for a 30 day 24/7 broadband compared to Globe's PHP 2000 for a 30 day 24/7 broadband... speed will also be an issue but as far as i have observed there are more globe 3G areas around metro manila and bulacan compared to smart... plus judging smartbro this is bound to have more problems that it's ate plan 999... just my opinion though... PS. I dunno if i computed it right since i really suck at math... gomen...
  7. may i ask your location? in our area in san rafael bulacan they added i think at least 2 towers... instead of upgrading the base station...
  8. i wouldn't pay a damn centavo... i have not been able to use it anyway and if they want to sue me i would sue them back and have everyone in sign in a signature campaign against their f***ing ass... i even shouted this afternoon to a poor CSR lady... "ANG TANGA NG TECHNICHAL TEAM NYO... ALAM MO BA SPELLING NG T-A-N-G-A" i was literally shouting at her because the anger that will fill you after 22 days of hearing "please monitor your connection for 24 hours" will be unbearable... i even asked her 21 times 24 she said "sandali lang po" ("please wait a while") she said 500+ i said that's how long i have been monitoring my damn connection... lolz.... gotta love smartbro for this... it's been my average speed for almost 20 days now... (only got 3 fast connection days since november 1)
  9. lolz at least for you it's 11 wonderful months.... i had only good connection until october... right now it's always 67kbps... and they can't even fix their facilities... next month when globelines comes here i will have a notarized letter for disconnection...
  10. there was some csr named janet who insisted to me that my present 179kbps is normal... and that 384 kbps is only burstable.. lolz i wanted to shake her and maybe she would wake up...
  11. it also happened to me from november 1 to 14... i call their hotline every day to report this occurence... (mine was worst than yours... metering at 30kbps on peak hours...) they would fist check my basestation and say a technical problem occurs... but there was one time when i called and asked the status of the BS the CSR told me that there was nothing wrong with the BS i'm connected to... i said why is my speed only 80kbps at that time... she said "let me check again sir" when he came back she said that there was a technical problem... when i got pissed last november 12 i demanded to talk to a supervisor and asked why they do not give feedback (callback) and all they could say is "technical problem". the solution she came up was schedule me for a field visit to rehome me to another BS since my current still has a tech prob. for 2 weeks... so when the technician came they told me that it is not possible to rehome since there is no other alternative.. so after replacing the antenna and still no results i called the hotline and have the technicians to to the CSR and i demanded a callback from the supervisor... it was 4 pm that time and my speed is still 40kbps... so 7 pm came and the supervisor called and i had my dad talk to her since i was so pissed... she said asked me to check my connection since she had the higher technical team do some remote tweaking to my connection... lo and behold my speedtest metered 420kbps that time... after hanging up with the supervisor i called my friend who also has a smartbro connection (his house is nearer the BS) and he said his connection still is slow at the time of my getting the normal connection from the SAME BS.. the good connection lasted from evening of 14 to early 16 because when i woke up at 8:30 yesterday i could not even take a speed test and i had intermittent connection... i called again yesterday twice and the last CSR i talked to was forced to tell me a little secret which we all know anyway. -i can have a good speed and somebody can have a different result at the same time from the same BS factors: numbers of subscribers, positioning of antenna, distance, status of BS -if in a BS only few subscribers will report poor connection, it might take a long time to upgrade the BS since they would assume that because only a few calls about poor connection others are satisfied with their connection... so for everybody's sake, once you're speed gets below 300kbps call the hotline. ( it's free isn't it?) and report your BS slowing down... and for hctiws don't stop calling them and bug them always... that's the only way they MIGHT listen to you...
  12. every initial speedtest i do it always go to this burst speed... but then on the second test it drops back to 390kbps...
  13. Still without tweaks... taken 8:15am November 1, 2007 GMT +08:00 a few hours later it will drop to 300+ lolz...
  14. yeah... after 5 days they finally listen to my insistence that there is a problem with the base station... the last CSR told me that the field visit that 4 CSR insisted is no longer needed because the problem has already been fixed at the base station.. i wanna knock on the heads of those CSR and maybe i will hear only air...
