anyone using evo dsl? some comments for eastern here.

Discussion in 'Eastern DSL' started by huangyenhao, Oct 1, 2006.

  1. hello i'm currently searching for a broadband provider, since only eastern and smart bro are available in my area so i must choose an isp from these two providers.
    according to some of my friends and comments from pinoydsl and other websites, smart bro is not really reliable and customer service is not good as evo dsl is the only one i'm thinking about.
    after i compared to the other isp, here i need to comment something about eastern telecom.

    1. not competitive - 384 kbps for P990/month, i know pldt,skydsl and globe have upgraded their speed at least to 512 kbps or even 768 kbps during SOD.

    2. installation fee - 2.8k one time service fee. too expensive to the other providers.

    3. in terms of quality and service, eastern has 24 hrs technical support and good customer services (mon-fri) , very stable speed and few dc happen.

    4. schedule of installation - no comment yet, but sales told me within 20 days....(good or bad?)

    go for eastern if you don't care about the cost and days of installation.. but you want reliable service and connection

    go for smart bro if you want cheap installation and 3 days only but dont have reliabel service and connection


  3. @Huang: Same here....I currently have PLDT myDSL in my other location...been down for about 2 week STRAIGHT now. Only other options are BRO wireless and EVO. I have been wanting to get EVO but installation fee is just crazy. BTW, how'd you know the connection is stable when you haven't had yours connected yet? Anyway, please do inform us on what happens...would help a lot! Thanks.

    di naman kailangan connected ka to know if evo is stable.. as long as you have other means to verify it


  5. I heard somebody from say that evo is quite good in their service and consistant connection.

    i called their support yesterday and i told them what i feel about eastern,they said their management and sales groups have been discussing about package upgrading but still hard to say when will it be implemented.

    regarding installation, they told me i may get discount on installation, just told me to wait for their customer rep. to call me back on mon since sales and customer support operate from mon - fri only.

    this is my guess, dealer or agent gets commission from installation, thats why they told me i "may" get discount on it.

  6. D kasi ako nagbabasa ng ibang forums tungkol sa phil dsl dito naman, wala masyado nakasulat about EVO...kaya d ko alam....Masyado ata akong loyal sa pinoydsl kasi dito lang ako nagbabasa ng mga opinions about dsl services...hehehehe Anyways, thanks for the feedback!

    well yung officemate ko may internet cafe sa intramuros, eastern din DSL provider nya. ok daw service, no problem encountered so far. less maintenance din daw. ang prob lang nya eh yung mga users, mahilig mangalikot ng configuration so i told him to use DeepFreeze hehehe! (OT na)

  8. hi all
    i finally got my evo dsl installed.
    the service is ok so far,my package is 384kpbs (down/up)
    and i've got consistent speed of 40~43kbs
    now i wish eastern can upgrade speed soon to at least 512 kbps :wink:
