    True, but I am more concerned with download speeds (cough "torrents" cough) and the advertised speed that I get is commensurate with my download speed, ie: I get 10 Mb advertised speed and my downloads on most days are 1.2 MB ... just sayin

    When I moved to Valencia from Candau-Ay, Globe DSL was no longer available but I do have Fil Products fiber. There were a few issues at first but we sort of worked it out and lately my ping is about 26 Marc and 10.0 meg per sec. that is good for the area IF it stays consistent. I think it will. So far it has been good for the last 3 weeks. I think any problems at start-up are related to the new fiber connections. Some neighbors here have refused to upgrade to fiber. It seems the original cable wiring is underground and they usually cannot EASILY, cheaply replace the underground cable to the home with fiber to the home so they run overhead fiber and people refuse that. I didn’t know I had the option to refuse. Anyway, fiber is new to fil products and I would have preferred to skip the growing pains. But once it works, it seems consistent. The unusual thing is, when you think of fiber you think high bandwidth, so, super high speed. Well, that could be possible with fiber but not in the Phils where the bandwidth of the entire nation is very limited. This is where D30 would love some foreign competition to come in (from China) and shake things up. In other countries like South Korea, China, Japan and Singapore, 10 Mps is a snail’s pace dating way back to twisted pair DSL speeds, which are OK for me, but not enough upon which to move a large high tech firm or data center here. The people are being cheated out of business opportunities and employment that depend on state of the art speeds.

    I have Fil-Products Cable (6Mbps) and when I line up Torrents before going to bed I usually wake up to 30+ Movies in my Download Folder... No complaints here apart from when the occasional Blackout in Zamboanguita puts Internet and TV offline for a while or some pages will not open due to my IP Address being Blocked.

    Hmm. Not enough difference for me to give a poo about. I pay for 5 Mbps but this speed is normal for me, on an average weekday.

    That latency and upload though....
    Might not matter much to you but it throws gaming right out the window. Not that gaming in Asia is much fun anyways, can't understand a d*mn thing that any of your teammates are saying...other than "China numbah whon! Fuk USA!" :meh:

    Your using pldt which actually has been trying to provide what they sell. But if your globe or filproducts (especially globe) you'll see the big difference.


    That has always been one of my complaints. I've been an online gamer since the 90's but pretty hard when in the Philippines. A *good* ping rate is 250ish over here which kicks out any fps or competitive game out the window. In the past the norm during peak was often 350-400 which made it pretty hard playing the rest of the online game options as well. I however would never connect to Asia servers but the ping wouldn't be much less unless its a Philippine server. Screw playing on any Philippine server though as odd as it sounds Filipino's have a horrible rep in online games in Asia of being super dicks.

    Pretty sure Fil-Products Internet is supplied by PLDT. I recall doing some searching and it came up with PLDT but I cannot work out how I did that now.

    I've played with some Filipinos in PUBG. They were much better than playing with the Chinese. I find their insults and salty attitudes kind of humorous...and at least you can communicate.
