Warning: The succeeding statement are mostly rants about the current procedure when getting your PC connected to the internet.I applied for PLDT’s php999 promo which includes phone line and DSL connection. Two weeks after paying the initial fee, my phone line was connected (April 2 to be exact), I asked the PLDT lineman when myDSL will be activated. The lineman said that a new set of staff will set up my DSL connection.
This morning I called up PLDT customer service to follow up my application for myDSL. The service staff told me that my application is still in-process.
Had I known that it would take this long to process my application, I would have applied for Smartbro instead. Unfortunately Smartbro doesn’t come with a phone line.
So, now while I await for the arrival of PLDT linemen to activate myDSL I tried using an internet pre-paid card which happens to be a by-product of PLDT, the PLDT VIBE which is a dial-up internet card. But with a download speed of 48kbps, I couldn’t load anything into my browser. So, as for now I sticking to Smart 3g to have an internet connection.
