Adios SkyBroadband!

Reading blogs and writing them have been a huge part of my life in the last ten years (give or take). It makes me really sad that I haven’t been doing that much lately. No thanks to the terrible service we’ve been getting from SkyBroadband. I posted about our ongoing problem with them back in October (Calling @SkyServes), and unfortunately, after giving them several opportunities to redeem themselves, we’re still having this problem.

Our Internet connection has been so unreliable I’ve lost patience waiting and waiting and waiting.

I have had to rely on my phone to check my personal email. Facebook is also limited to mobile, except for the very few times I feel like reloading the page over and over on the PC.

So we’re switching. We’ve put in an application with PLDT for their DSL and we’re just waiting for installation. Hope it pushes through on Wednesday.

If there’s anything good that came out of this, it’s that I’ve had a bit more sleep, and a lot more time making rainbow bands for my fund raising activity – more on this soon! Smile

That was why I missed you from the commex! S23*&w Skybroadband! I have the same issue with Globe Broadband. And you know the annoying thing? They charge me 22 pesos everytime they deliver my paper bill!

22 pesos is too much for a paper bill!

Glad you ill be joining us again. We have had server and WiFi problems and it is time consuming because everything takes longer… It gets better some days. Wish you the best with the new service.

Yes, although I missed the round last week but you’ll be seeing more of me :)

I thought Skybroandband is more reliable compared to other. Thanks for this info. We already decided to renew our Smartbro Wimax Outdoor subscription since the conenction is already stable at home.

Indeed, nakakainis pag mabagal ang internet! I do hope you can switch to a better provider.

I have since switched to PLDT. Not a smooth transition, but things are definitely better.
