  1. I think it is now down to 40 hours - then in blocks of 30 minutes metering. Meaning, if you connect to the internet at 1:30pm, then disconnect at 1:45pm, your consumption is already rounded off to 30 mins. Then if you connect again at 1:55pm until 2:10pm, your consumption is already counted as two blocks of 30 mins. So, your usage from 1:30pm to 1:45pm then 1:55pm up to 2:00pm is for the first 30 minutes. Then your usage from 2:01pm up to 2:10pm is already for the second 30 minutes. --------------------- It is actually different from the smartBRO using canopy-AP. Perhaps, they called it smartbro plug it since it's similar to the existing smartbro using canopy-AP ( i mean, because it's all about the internet). Actually, if you call *1888 they will just give you some details and WILL advise you to dial *888 ( gsm hotline ) to get plug it support.
  2. Correct. Only in a congested basestation, you might experience slow/intermittent connection if you won't do anything about it.
  3. They are actually trained to handle technical problems but still they need to perform step by step procedure for quality evaluation. Well, that's call center standard operating procedures. ================= Yes. Email would be a great choice aside from visiting your nearest wireless center so that their what so called higher technical support might schedule you for field visit if they find something wrong with the antenna. They might also tell you quickly right after their opening spiel if there's a problem with your base station. If it's a congested or intermittent Basestations, DON'T expect that they'll be giving you a definite time to fix it. Well, we should understand that. BUT when first quarter of 2008 comes, and you'll still be having the same problem, that's the best time to revolt! joke...
  4. Do more research about the SMART-CONTRACTORS Agreement.. Case to case basis. Anyway, some people here in the forum have congested base station but no problem with their connections.. So the possible solution, do some tweaks ( if you believe in it ) Anyway, Me too, if I am the technician and I am in the middle of the war.. I will find something to go out of those freaking bullets.. Let's try to become a big businessman ========= Anyway, let's try to find out the stable DNS to help each other. In some cases, some subscribers are complaining that they can't connect to yahoo messenger or sometimes it will turn on and then turn off again after a minute. Try proxy.smartbro.net - port 8080 in connection preferences.
  5. Are you referring to SmartBRO technician? Actually, as far as I know, smart is paying P 450 PER VISIT to their contractors. I.e. EPINS, UMI etc. It's up to them (said contractors) how many technicians they want to send for every subscriber. I think they only need to send one or two people depending on the problem. Sometimes, they are sending two or more technicians, what will happen to P 450 then? As per their ( technicians) salary, it actually depends on their bosses ( contractors ). If you are in that business, do you want your contractors to do the same thing? I mean you trusted those contractors to help you fix the problem of their subscribers, but they don't do their job that well ( not all ). Sometimes, the low salary that they ( technicians ) are talking about depends on their bosses ( technicians ). I am not actually in favor of smart in general, but sometimes be considerate. The bad thing is, SMART SHOULD STOP INSTALLING NEW SUBSCRIBERS UNTIL THEY FIXED all their congested base stations. Anyway, repairing those base stations is not that easy in a big business. But in fairness to them, some base stations in north luzon especially in bataan and zambales were already fixed ( but still not all of them). We are looking forward now in fixing their base stations in some part of bulacan, metro manila, palawan, laguna area and some part of visayas and mindanao! hehehe..
  6. Mmmmm.. Sorry but we are in a forum right? Yes, you are what we called the moderators.. But here in what we called "forum," we are here TO HELP, so if there's something wrong with the answers or suggestions of the posters, we should correct it.. I've read all the posts in this thread and found out that Sir smartbroken_user corrected only the wrong information given by sir coolbuster2007 about the power level.. Correct me if I'm wrong.. Thanks..
  7. Sorry. I am just curious. @ Coolbuster - Can we also use the cablenut or this tweak in cable internet? Thanks.
  8. ahhhh.. 55KBps? it's not bad when downloading from a far host.
  9. Question: After tweaking, how's your download speed in torrent and browsing? Maybe you can get a super fast speed in testing your bandwidth but how about the real performance? If it's okay, then good..
  10. I think there's a problem again with the smartbro base stations in south metro manila all the way to some part of cavite and laguna.
  11. I've experienced intermittent connection from thurs-sunday. fixed it after several times of reporting try their text hotline. ( got an immediate call though, in fairness ). my first intermittent experience ( aside from fiber optics problem ) after almost 2 years in destiny.
  12. One of their reps said that they could actually check your signal from your antenna to their basestation using your Physical Address or MAC Address. Probably, they will just need to verify your IP address if it is valid especially if your complain is No Connectivity.
  13. Yep.. In short. That would probably the IP Address of the base station where you are homed...
  14. I think my friend has a globe wireless connection somewhere in tanza..
  15. I think Quickfix 2 has so many problems/bugs now. Is it the beta version right? I think Quickfix 2.1 will be released on September ( hopefully ).
  16. Wow! awesome! Coolbuster and Frostbound.. got ym ids?
  17. Hahahaha! yap! I know! You might be disconnected before reaching 20mb.. lol.. But let's wait and see in the near future.. who knows? hahahaha.. Anyway, are you a smartbro user?
  18. Don't worry. I've heard something that all the base stations will undergo expansion. They will just prioritize all congested base stations with several complaints. As far as I know, they've already expanded some base stations in Bulacan, Cavite and some part of Laguna. More to come guys.. Let's try to understand them, Base station expansion is not that easy..
  19. Sorry! hahaha.. 600MB.. lol.. I've been doing something.. sorry sir..
