    Just an excuse. The NTC can still force a provider to close a contract they are unable to fulfill w/o charging the customer.

    Further the 14 million to monitor the internet providers is crap. The internet providers already have the equipment and already monitor such things. I know for a fact Globe, PLDT, and Skycable all have equipment to monitor a users speed and any 3rd rate network admin could use that to check actual speeds. All it takes is NTC demanding in cases that isp's hand over all records for the past 3-6 months on the accounts in question. If the provider fails to provide it hold them automatically guilty.

    Why would they want to make it easy, if they can get away with lame statements like this one, there will be no follow up and the customers are left to swallow it...

    I'm living in dauin now next to Eldorado and next to the beach. Checked with Globe no service here checked with PLDT no service here either. Seems the only thing available is Smart. I'd rather chew on ground glass than to deal with there lack of service and lies. I like to download my tv shows and it uses up my (fair share limit) the first day of my monthly renewal. After that my internet speed slows down to 0.01-0.06 which is absolutely useless. Anyone hear of Gravatel ?

    I really wanted to move to Dauin myself but one of my major needs is a half decent internet service which simply isn't available there from every account I have heard.

    Sorry, I could not log in for a while, this guy I mentioned, has, according to my friends experience, his own business with remote locations Internet service, he puts up his own antennas and is the only one he is dealing with if there is a problem, he pays 2000PhP for a steady data stream, he does not really know how many Mega/Kilobytes, he can do video Skype anytime, I forgot to ask about the installation cost though...

    Does this sound familiar...

    "Anti-competition and regulatory failure: the richest man in the world weak regulatory environments are ideal settings for anti-competitive business practices. Without competition, firms are free to charge exorbitant prices, which cause consumers to lose out and ultimately increase economic inequality. When elites exploit weak or incompetent anti-trust authorities, price gauging follows as a form of government to big business. By not acting when dominant firms crowd out competition, government tacitly permits big business to capture unearned profits, thereby transferring income from the less well-off sections of society to the rich. Consumer goods become more expensive, and if incomes do not rise, inequality worsens.
    Mexico’s privatization of its telecommunications sector 20 years ago provides a clear example of the nexus between monopolistic behavior, weak and insufficient regulatory and legal institutions, and resulting economic inequality.
    Mexico’s Carlos Slim moves in and out of the world’s richest person spot, possessing a net worth estimated at $73bn. The enormity of his wealth derives from establishing an almost complete monopoly over fixed line, mobile, and broadband communications services in Mexico. Slim is the CEO and Chairman of América Móvil, which controls nearly 80 percent of 15fixed line services and 70 percent of mobile services in the country. A recent OECD review on telecommunications policy and regulation in Mexico concluded that the monopoly over the sector has had a significant negative effect on the economy, and a sustained welfare cost to citizens who have had to pay inflated prices for telecommunications.
    As the OECD report argues, América Móvil’s ‘incessant’ monopolistic behavior is facilitated by a ‘dysfunctional legal system’, which has replaced the elected government’s right and responsibility to develop economic policy and execute regulation of markets. This system has stunted the emergence of a dynamic and competitive telecommunications market. In fact, many of the regulatory instruments present in most OECD countries are absent in Mexico.42
    The costs of government failure to curb such monopolistic behavior are large. Mexico has a high level of inequality and has the lowest GDP of all OECD countries. As other OECD countries demonstrate, a more efficient telecommunications (especially broadband) sector can play an important role in driving economic growth and reducing poverty, especially among a large rural population, as in Mexico’s case. The OECD calculates that the market dysfunctions stemming from the telecommunications sector have generated a welfare loss of $129.2bn between 2005 and 2009, or
    1.8 percent of GDP per year."

    I have been using Bayantel for my Internet. It has been costing me 6,000 a month for 10 mps. I never reach that speed but it is close. When I started the service it was down for 12 days of the first month. They promised to compensate me but they never did! The month before last I was on vacation. My bill was 2 weeks late so they cut off my service. I tried to pay them and get up and running again but they refused my payment and told me I could start again at the end of the month. Now they want 6,000 for the two weeks I had service for! So last month I paid 11,701 and this month they want 12,293! Their billing department is all mixed up and when I try to speak with them they tell me to speak with their manager. When I try to speak with their manager he gets angry and says I need to speak with the billing department.

    So I am looking for a decent Internet provider. I know that things change here in Phils and am wondering if there is good Internet provider now. My complaint with most providers especially Skycable is that when the kids get out of school and start playing their online games my connection is almost non existent.

    I need a provider who does not scam their customers with kind of service. A provider I can
    depend on. I cannot complain about Bayantel's speed as it is good for me. I just hate paying for services I am not getting and I can't get along with their manager.

    I would really appreciate any advise here and a review on other services that are reliable.
