    ^ok kaya to sa torrent tska sa xboxlive? feedbacks naman guys :)
     



  2. We've been using SkyBroadband for almost a month already. Unfortunately, the 1st 15 days free trial was great. we've been getting good Mbps BUT when we confirmed that we'll continue with the subscription, that's when we frequently get "NO" Connection. We always call their customer service and they keep on telling us that there's no problem with the system based on their analysis. They even sent their field technicians (twice already)to check on our modem, wirings etc. and they keep on telling us that they have fixed the prob. BUT to our dismay the connection problems will resume right after they left. We've been experiencing almost 2 straight weeks already and it really pisses us 'coz we can't do our tasks.
    I'm just letting you guys know that we're not at all satisfied with SkyBroadband and i wished that I didn't disconnect our SmartBro. I will just assume that our prob. is just an isolated case. I'm just posting this just to share my opinion. So if you are planning on getting the services of Sky, think again..

    hmmm, di naman siguro .. baka naman talagang me problem dun sa area nila ..
    kasi ganito yun nangyari sa akin nung naka-myDestiny ako .. pag nag-down yung connection ko, tatawag ako sa CS/TS nila and magpapadala ng maintenance crew sa bahay namin .. and everytime na dumarating sila sa bahay, eh nagiging ok yung connection ko ..

    @all
    marketing strategy lang nila ata yung patikin na 12mpbs for the trial tapos pag nagsubscribe ka na eh kabaligtaran yung speed na makukuha mo ..
     



  7. Anybody here have SkyBroadband in Caloocan?

    Di ko kasi nakikita yung Caloocan sa coverage nila kaya I asked here.
    I'm trying to find an alternative to replace my SmartBro ISP.

    I'm at Novaliches, Caloocan near SM Fairview

    btw, newbie lang ^^

    Sa tingin ko internal or local speed lang yang 12mbps.
    Mabagal ang international connection ng bayantel & skybroadband(sister company shares network).
     



  9. hi mga pips..

    interesado rin ako pakabit ng skybroadband.. am in san miguel, manila area... so pag meron sa inyong nagpakabit ng skybroadband malapit sa area ko.. pabalita naman.. hehe.. :)
     



  10. i subscribed for 15 trial period. 3mbps yung package. ok ang connection nya to international sites/servers. streaming is fast. direct download is also fast. my world of warcraft connection is also superb. problem is with torrents. sobrang bagal sa torrents even with many seeders.

    kapag skybroadband ko DL speed sa torrent with moderate seeders nasa 10 to 15kbps lang. kpag gamit ko yung bayandsl nasa 100 to 130 mbps (1.2mbps lang yung plan namin sa bayandsl). so d ko lam kung ano problem ng sky with torrents. sabi ng marami since october last year pa nagsimula yung problem na yun until now d pa rin ayos. hehe.

    so in my opinion kung mahilig ka mag download via torrents, sky is not for you. getting the 12mbps package will be a waste. pero kung rapidshare ka mag dl or other similar sites, ok ang sky.

    For international online games, i've only tested world of warcraft, guild wars and left 4 dead. ok yung connection ko. actually mababa yung latency ko. im getting around 250 to 300ms.

    Btw, La Vista subdivision QC here.

    Edit:
    i'll try playing my ps3 tomorrow. will post some feedbacks here kung ok siya sa mga ps3 games.

    this was actually also my problem when i subscribed to zpdee, palaging no connection. thanks for this post, now i know na ganun pa rin pala sky when it comes to cable internet. btw, sana may sumubok nung 12 mbps trial at i post dito yung speed tests...
     



  12. Umm, so compared to SmartBro. Which provider will you choose? SmartBro or SkyBroadband? I am planning to replace my SmartBro to another ISP. I'm at North Caloocan (Near SM Fairview). Do you think they can have a connection service applied to our area? Walang PLDT MyDSL dito puro SmartBro. I'm fine with torrents because bihira lang ako gumamit niyan. But I'm more concerned with surfing, streaming, online games and the continuity of their internet connection.

    Hindi kaya area-area din lang ang siste dito?

    Sampaloc ako. And from their official website, nakalagay sa mga covered areas ang Sampaloc, at bago lang siya covered.

    Baka naman may mga taga-Sampaloc dito na naka Skybroadband, advise naman kung OK siya.

    Saka pala may tanong ako. Yung plan 999 nila, its either available for non-Sky subscribers at saka sa subscribers.

    May skycable prepaid subscription ako. Am I considered a sky subscriber or not?

    Kasi yung non-subscriber, 1mbps lang ang max, unlike sa mga sky subscribers, 1.5mbps ang max.

    Salamt in advance sa mga sasagot.

    Follow-up question pala, ilang taon ang lock-in period nito?
     



  15. Umm, tumawag ako sa SkyBroadband. Sabi nila wala sila available na service sa caloocan right now. Sayang. Gusto ko pa naman subukan ang service nila.

    Pagdating sa lock-in period, usually ginagawa nila 1 year ang lock-in period lagi eh.
     



  16. taga sampaloc area ko. mabilis naman sky broadband sa web browsing, downloading, streaming. ung torrent lang talaga mabagal, kahit direct sa lan card or naka connect sa router and open ung mga ports.

    sa rapidshare naman lagi already downloading ung status ko. so check ko ung ip sa http://www.dslreports.com/whois?java=1 ung na dedetect na ip ng rapidshare nde ung real public ip ko.

    plan ko is 999 with sky cable.

    Yung nabasa ko sa ibang forum (TPC), wala naman daw talagang nakakaabot sa 12mbps. Saka yung trial, sa umpisa ka lang daw papatikimin ng magandang speed para mag-subscribe ka. Pero wala pang isang buwan, mararamdaman mo na ang palpak na serbisyo.

    Dami ko ngang naririnig na complain dun eh.

    Maski ako, na-engganyo magpa-subscribe. Pero nung malaman ko na ang torrent ang pinaka-apektado sa lahat (speed/connection if being throttled sa torrent), na-turnoff ako. Yun pa naman pinaka-gamit kong task tapos hindi ko rin mapapakinabangan.

    Pero kung browsing lang kayo, or downloading sa mismong browser, then mabilis daw siya. DAW ha.
     



  19. Hey everyone. I've been thinking about this plan too. Yun nga din naisip ko about the trial. Mabilis lang sa trial, pero once you subscribe, mabagal na.

    If that were to happen, could I report that to the NTC or something?
     



  20. Gusto ko sanang magcable internet dati ang problema wala naman silang ganyan sa cainta.
