How is it connected to your computer? Via LAN Port


Nationwide e-mail access, but Wi-Fi connection is available in 250 hotspots only. With the minimum monthly subscription of P2,850, I’d rather you use your mobile connection for access during the times there is no plug-it-in internet nearby.

  1. Hello,

    I would like to ask if this is available in our location which is Taytay, Rizal Palmera 4? I am planning to get the Plan 999 256kbps 999 Php since I have trouble using my dial-up connection (the PLDT line is always been stolen in our village). Please also send me the computer requirements on how I can run the WiFi successfully in my computer. Am I assured that I will be getting the connection speed I am paying for? Please reply to me asap. 🙂



  2. Hi there,

    Same area budz! wala pa ata PLDT DSL line dito sa location natin, Im using Digitel DSL plan 999 for 256/96 Kbps….this connection sucks, my connection speeds up to 100-104Kbps with the download speed of 6-13KB/s 2xfaster than a dial up damn!!! so i dont recommend DSL Digitel…meron na sa bandang melendres subdivision PLDT DSL gamit ng isang kakilala ko.

    Requirements for WiFi: a Pentium 3/4 or AMD processor with Windows XP Operating System, one slot of Ethernet port (Lan Card) or maybe your motherboard includes a built in LAN port, i dunno but some wifi’s using USB port, u have to include that also. Thats all the standard using WiFi, if u avail a DSL wifi(Smart) maybe they include some bundled softwares(wifi software/driver) for those who subscribe it.

    Try searching for more info about Wi-fi, napadaan lang ako peste kasi tong DSL ko bagal.Im a Gamer and i play a lot of online games..LAG Delays *sigh but rarely disconnects at a time. New PC na gamit ko wala nmn problema but on their lines,pag mag PLDT DSL madalas pa naman manakawan linya ng PLDT dito baka malugi ka..better to avail SmartBro Dsl than PLDT DSL, but………. meron ba malapit smart cell site sa location natin sabagay bundok naman tayo, good transmission of signals without interferences dapat for a good connection of wifi, nasa bayan pa mga cell site ata. Ask around on our area baka meron na mga Smart subscribers dyan, homeboy kasi ako lagi sa loob ng bahay hahaha.

    Well thanks, just givin a little hint for you

  3. am using smart bro. plan 988, so far, matagal na akong walang problema sa connection ko. Based on internet speedometer speed, ive always register a 200kbs speed. on my downloading, average of 44kbs. I can use the yahoo messenger or skype on my video calling with my bro. and sis and so far its running smoothly with a good quality of sounds.

    im planning to apply GLOBE VISIBILITY, i doubt na ang makukuha ko lang na speed sa lugar namin ay GPRS, its lucky if i can get an EDGE connection, an EDGE can quite satisfy my internet browsing, lucky if GLOBE upgrade all their cellsites to 3G.

    My PC to be used with GLOBE VISIBILITY was in JUBAN , SORSOGON, fullbar signal ng celphone ko inside the house sa globe with very clear audio.

    Tell u all if i’ll be activated this month.
