  1. Well just an info ha. I am working in a Korean ISP in BGC. And one of our client want to terminate there subscription to us because of one thing lang mabagal daw pag nagcoconect sila sa Singapore. And we try to negotiate para di lang sila lumipat. But there Manager told us they already contact Teltra para sa kanilang new ISP. I dont know kung kailan sila kakabitan.

  2. Wla ng Telstra , sinuko n ng SMC ang pkkpg joint venture pra mkapasok s Phils, hnharang kc ng Globe at Smart, tnadtran sla ng TRO, binenta n ng SMC s globe at smart un nga infrastructure n naumpishan nla nung 2015 pa, but who knows… Iba n and presidente , malay ntin, d nmn msama umasa

  3. Please no. 7 days of hell is more than enough. Globe can't even provide good service when we pay for data usage. How much more if it is for free?
    Just imagine the amount of Pokemon Go players that will congest the network even more.

  4. Adrian Wong Reyes regardless yan ser.. with duterte allowing international competitors to serve filipinos better internet services there surely would be at least one that will come in..

    Filipinos deserve better than what its getting at the moment..

    May google para ma-research yan. Para hindi tayo masabihang "me-ma" lang.
