    My PLDT DSL Internet has been out for a few hours now. I had to switch to my Smart Data plan which is very slow but better than nothing.

    What I want to know is if anyone else is having any Internet problems today? Yes, I could phone PLDT (or message them) but past experience has shown me that I can expect a run-around for a couple of days with no information and no fix so before I waste my time . . anyone else here with an Internet problem in Sibulan or Dumaguete or nearby?

    My PLDT DSL is working now. 15 minutes of "Press 1" Press 2" etc "You have exceeded the number of attempts please try again", repeat endlessly, and suddenly it started to work. I never did get through to a real person.

    Assholes.

    I went down to PLDT, they told me a lorry crashed into a pole bringing down all the cables. More Red Horse driver.

    Yah, they had a break or something of the sort and was down for a number of hours. What bothers me though is you can't even call them on the phone even if the break isn't on your end of the line. If the internet goes out so does the phones connected to the fiber line including during a brownout.

    PLDT fibre and DSL went out about 8:30 wed morn. Of course, knocked out voip land line also... Customer Service, dial 171 on smart (fibre and (?) DSL). They can't tell you why but they'll take your info and check into it (soooo useful)... Came back on sometime between 11:30 and 2 pm... GREAT opportunity to cut off ur digital leash and get out in the fresh air...

    If they're having serious internal problems, I don't think you'll hear something else other than "sorry for the inconvenience."
