For the last 5 years that I have lived on Siquijor island, SmartBro has been the internet provider in brgy. Sandugan at the guesthouse where I rent a cottage. The signal has always been bad, intermittent and unreliable, so it is hard to believe it could get any worse, but it has. We lose signal many times a day, sometime for 15 minutes to 6 hours. We just never know. When we call the SmartBro office in Dumaguete it is always the same routine, where they apologize for the inconvenience and offer to schedule a visit by their tech the next day. But, of course nothing is ever done to fix the problem, and they wouldn’t dream of refunding any money to you for loss of service. You have no rights under the 2 year contract they impose, no guarantee of service and no avenue to get credit for the percentage of time the service is down, which is a minimum of 30% of the time. Unfortunately, as a renter, I have no authority to change to another company, which the owners do not want to do. They live abroad and don’t have to deal with it. Therefore, I am considering just paying for alternate service for my cottage alone. A friend who is a computer tech recently changed to Globe, and said that it is much superior to SmartBro. However, he lives in the town of Larena where the signal is considerably more reliable. I would like to know about the experience of other Siquijor residents concerning SmartBro and Globe, especially those who dumped SmartBro and changed to another provider. The 2 year contracts seem to make it impossible to end SmartBro service without paying a monthly penalty until the contract is completed. Any advice on that matter? Thanks ahead. Right now, I am waiting for the signal to return so I can post this on the forum.
