    Reedee,
    I am glad you found something to get connected. I hope this works out for you and good to know. Unfortunately there is no 3G tower in Tambobo or I would give this a try. Sorry I could not provide you with any additional info, but per the above request my advice was limited. Good Luck.

    78kbps? God have mercy on us,,,,that plan is supposed to be up to 2MBPS, I hope they can improve their service same with their misleading advertisements, not because globe s*cks but becuase they are better than globe. The Lock-in Period is 24 months right?

    Well, that is quite slow, but I have been suffering through 4 days of cripplingly slow speeds and intermittent outages. The service number claims it's a nation-wide problem.

    Are others experiencing this?

    Smart

    Yes, 24 month commitment. Of course, our first choice was Globe, but they pretty much refused to get us service, so it was Smart Bro or nothing, and if customer service means anything, they were at our house within 24 hours of us contacting them, so right now, we are satisfied with our internet.

    Probably no port available. Or if there are available ports these have been reserved or are faulty. Your only option is if someone gets disconnected or if they decide to augment current facility.

    Did you ask if WiMAX is available in the area? No phone line though but quite stable and steady @ 1mb.
