    I would like to see those results as well but I can't seem to figure out how to select a Globe server from my phone. Closest I can get is Hong Kong.

    I think I figured out my issue having dropped from 5mbps to 120-240 kbps. Seems when they installed my antenna they secured it to the pole, and the pole to the exterior wall, but only tight enough so the pole stays vertical, it turns rather easily and with the wind we have had the last few days the directional antenna isn't pointing in the correct direction any more. They are supposed to be back tomorrow to fix it, fingers crossed. I plan on marking the pole and the wall so I can realign it if it happens again. Might want to check your antenna direction.

    Yup, that was it. Globe just left, antenna was pointing 90 degrees off where it should have been. They tied it in place so tight the pole is bending a bit. If it ever happens again I now know what direction to point it in. Back to 5mbps down and 1.2mbps up. Next is getting moved off the 5mbps p1,599 plan and onto the new 10mbps p1,299 plan.

    I think they like for you to move to a more expensive plan but resist going the other way. New subscribers only or so they say?

    OK, charges me p1,000 to "upgrade" from 5mbps p1,599/mo to 10mbps p1,299/mo so I will be ahead money wise starting in March but I have double the download speed now. Also have 6 months free Netflix promo. speedtest.net on auto select showed 9.2 mbps and Speed test - how fast is your internet? | DSLReports, ISP Information showed 6.5 mbps to Tokyo, not bad for noon on Sunday I think.

    You are the first I have ever heard of in the Philippines where they allowed you to move to a better plan for less money. Did you get a receipt for that 1k?
