Guys I’ve just subscribed with Bayan Tel Broadband, Plan 999 – 512 mbps – I will be updating this post on thursday for the review so make sure to come back to this site. I just got the Flash drive unit yesterday and they said that it will be activated within 48 hours.
I also asked the Bayan tel guy who delivered the Unit if I can use it outside the metro but he said No and it’s only good in here in MM. You can also use this even if you’re living in a high rise tower. ( I was supposed to get a wi-tribe subscription but they said that there will be no signal if you’re living on the 12th floor and above, I’m on the 18th floor so I decided to try bayantel)
There’s also a 15 day trial so you can get your money back if you’re not satisfied with the service, otherwise you’ll be tied with a 2 year contract.
One last thing, the Bayantel technician told me signal is very poor over in Valenzuela.
Happy week ahead!
AFTER 2 DAYS:
Speed is pretty decent if you’re just browsing the net reading articles , but if you do your business online and you do a lot of download/uploading, I wouldn’ t recommend this. I also had to refresh the page twice just to access my wordpress admin interface. hmmm. I also tried to upload 2 pics in my facebook account, it takes about 2-3 minutes to upload 1 photo. But overall it’s ok, I can live with this, this isn’t as fast as destiny broadband but this will do.
And since this is just a flash drive, I will be able to save a bit when it comes to electric consumption since I won’t have to plug in my modem. But hey, this is just the first day, so I’ll be updating this post again if there’s any change in its performance.
AFTER 2 WEEKS:
GUYS, FORGIVE ME IF IM ON CAPS, THE CONNECTION IS JUST TERRIBLE THAT I HAVE TO GO TO A COFFEE SHOP EVERYDAY, THIS BAYANTEL IS USELESS, TOTAL CRAP. LOAD TIME TAKES FOREVER, IT DISCONNECTS LIKE ALMOST EVERY 30 MINUTES. I CAN’T SEND A SIMPLE 2 MB JPEG FILE THROUGH EMAIL OR YOUSENDIT. IT’S REALLY FRUSTRATING. I’M RETURNING THIS PIECE OF JUNK.
