    We will visit the Philippines in Augustus. We like to have internet access in our house in Malabago. What are the possibilities and what do we need?

    Hi Ben,

    I'v got a reasonable good result with a Smart Bro (999 php p/m plan) connection but I had to have an 100 feet pole build to get a good signal and
    you will have to sign up for 1 year. If it's only for a short time, I have a USB prepaid stick (like the dongel from KPN in NL) which I am not using and willing to sell. I'v used him only one week.

    We will stay in Malabago for only 4 weeks, so the USB prepaid option looks good, but do we have access in Malabago with this stick? (2km's from Timbou)

    Hello mr Boerma,

    We like to take over your USB dongel if we have connection with it at our place. Smart can not tell me if we have any connection at our place (I gived already our GPS coordinates to them). We will arrive in Dumaguete next week. Where can we meet you?

    Ben

    Hello Ben,
    Since I heard nothing more of you I've had him given to a member of my family overhere.
    I am sorry for the inconvinience but attached a link and the address of the smart office in Dumaguete where you can get a "dongel" at the current rate for € 30.00 including 500 minutes Internet.


    Prepaid - Smart Bro

    Door 2, Milagros Building, Perdices Street, Dumaguete City.
    Tel.: (035) 225-4051

    I wish you and your family a pleasant stay in Dumaguete.

    Smartbro and ALL of its competitors are subject to the available cell phone signal to receive and transmit data. Despite whatever claims any of them makes count on very little connectivity outside major centers.

    Up here in Balugo, in the middle of nowhere, was the connection very reasonable. Okay, not the 2 MB they promise but enough to do your regular e-mailing and transmitting pictures.
