Well here I am to spread words of wisdom and provide a little hope and comfort. Now you are scratching your head and wondering how that can happen considering the topic of this post, filipino internet. But then again you might be thinking, shit, Mike has finally slipped into the murky waters. But allow me […]
The problem: Your internet is out. This isn’t the first, the third, or the 20th time this has happened….this month alone. You’ve called and called and called. When you finally DO get someone that understands English (somewhat), the only response you get is one of two things: I’ll make a notation on your account (their […]
Even the media can not agree on the situation. “The Philippines has an average speed of 3.5 Mbps” – Source: 2014 Net Index rankings by Internet broadband testing company Ookla http://technology.inquirer.net/35871/govt-blamed-on-phs-slow-internet-speed “The Philippines had an average peak internet connection speed of 32.6 megabits per second (Mbps) in the 4th quarter of 2013” Source: Akamai http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/focus/04/23/14/why-philippine-internet-speeds-are-slow […]

Yes, PLDT, probably the largest communications utility in the country, completely dumb-shits all over themselves again. It’s not at all shocking, being that it’s comprised of typical dumb-fuck Filipino idiots. Honestly, they can’t get through 1 hour without dumb-fucking themselves in the ass. But hey, I need blog content, and you all need a jolly […]
This is a story of how Filipino business practices that are monumentally stupid. I am a Filipino Computer Engineer working for a large, multi-national IT services and products provider. I work on various networking technologies that make large-scale internet and mobile services possible. I am in-charge of research, design, development, and testing for these services […]
Link to original article: Click here tl;dr version: (not in order) Ping is not reliable, PLDT sucks, Garena needs to spend more on connectivity, use WinMTR instead of tracert, government needs public IX. Hi all, I’m a foreigner living in Manila that has spent the last 15 years building large scale networks in Europe, with […]
The stupidity and complete idiocy of the Filipino way of doing things has delivered the ultimate fuck-over for me and my way of earning a living. The brainless, completely irresponsible, unaccountable idiots known as native Filipinos continue to out-do their stupidity, and this time it could cost me my livelihood. My business is 100% dependent […]
PLDT Sucks Because It’s Run By Filipinos. All “Follow Up” But NO “Follow Through”.
After 5 years of dealing with consistent, ongoing service failures from PLDT, I would say I am well versed in how they operate. They operate Filipino style; with failed logic, non-accountability, irresponsibility, and with no sense of obligation to provide their customers a fair value for the money paid (much less to provide the service […]
PLDT really has no interest in customer service. My internet package is supposed to give me 10mbps speed. Lately I’ve had frequent disconnections and ridiculously slow speeds. I’ve been dealing with PLDT for years. Their “technicians” are under-qualified and pretty fuckin’ stupid. Ever wonder why PLDT reports record profits? BECAUSE THEY SAVE MONEY BY NOT […]
When I first arrived in this country of my origin, having grown up in a country with an environment of a much higher level of logical thinking, reason, accountability, care, concern, cleanliness, intelligence, rationality, honesty….well I could go on and on, I was SHOCKED to discover the complete opposite in the minds of native filipinos. […]
Do you call 171 to report and complain? Do you demand a rebate for their failure to deliver services? According to DTI, you are entitled to a rebate when they fail to deliver the service you’re paying for. Or do you just simply blog it and continue to pay your bill in full? If you […]
How many times, when calling to report speed issues, or outtages, have you gotten the standard “Please allow 24 to 48 hours to correct this problem” Then after 48 hours, problem remains unsolved, so you call again, and you get, “we will follow up on that and get back to you within 24 hours. Then […]
PLDT (Philippine Long Distance Telephone) has made me laugh so hard so many times, simply because they are so stupid it’s funny. They provide my telephone and DSL internet connection. All providers here can’t maintain a decent connection, and they’re all crappy, but PLDT least crappy of them all, so I go with them. Ok, […]
