    Hey everyone. The name's Brian (another one) here on the FAR side of Siaton. We (the wife and me) come from Ft. Worth Texas, which is the polite side of Dallas for those noy familiar with the area.
    Arrived Oct 2018 and ain't mad about being linda stuck. I do miss Wal Mart Home Depot (the real one) QT, Raceteack, and Whataburger.
    I've been a fan of the sight since some guy mentioned it over coffee. It is good to onoe oyher's have the same thoughts I do.
    I look forward to contributing my unsolicited advise but may be a bit late. Out here in the boondocks NOBODY offers Wi-fi so it is based on phone data connection.
    That said, howdy ya'll

    Welcome to the forum Brian, regarding wi-fi will none of the companies that offer internet through erecting a large mast on your roof operate in your area ?

    Not like I would expect. Of course I am learning not to have expectations here, but I digress.
    Out here the towers act as relays and point to the Degamo's property over 3km away and need line of sight. The 1 other full time expat out here put one up and it helped his signal (he no longer needs to walk on the beach to use his phone) but strong and steady... nope.

    Hi Brian and welcome.
    When I lived in the hills behind Sta Catalina I used Smart Bro and now in the hills around Mabinay we use Globe at home (with an antenna). The service is not great, but then nowhere in the Philippines is, but it's adequate for most needs. Don't just call them as they'll try and sell you a service that they can't provide. I found I got the best results by talking to them in their offices (and any of their technicians if you see them around). Best of Luck!
