Unified PLDT Home/Biz DSL Users Thread (See page 934 for FAQ. No Torrent discussions and Reference.)

  • Question for any DSL subscriber.

    Why are you still on DSL?
  • Do you want to improve the wifi & LAN performance of your DSL connection to maximize your Mbps?

    Buy a 3rd party wifi router, like the TP-Link Archer AX50 AX3000 Wireless Dual-Band Gigabit Router, and request for "bridge mode" for your fiber modem from your ISP.

    This offloads the NAT, wifi & LAN functions of the modem/ONU onto the 3rd party wifi router.
  • Your ISP, telco or carrier does not want you to do are the following after contract is done

    - Mobile Number Portability (MNP) to the rival network
    - Downgrade to the same Mbps they increased your plan from
    - Terminate service
    - Switch service

    When you indicate any of these things you can get a bette deal for less money.

    This is ideal with subscribers who pay be deadline.
  • These are the consumer-grade 3rd party routers I'd recommend if you want the best experience

  • dati kami kA asenso 1888 since 2014 then namigrate sa fiber noong 2021. malaki po ba ang difference kun iupgrade itong plan namin sa plan 1999 nila, halos 100 lng diperensya.

    Ayus na ayus to eto gamit ko. Naka WIFI6 ako mag games, 200ms ang ping. Nainis ako, inayus ko yung ethernet ko, naglagay ako ng bagong CAT6e cable para linya talaga, 200ms parin ping ko, anak ng tinapang PLDT to.
  • @floriver

    Me 2 uri ng Asenso Plans

    - new subscriber
    - existing subscriber

    Kung upgrade ka pwede ka sa Plan 1999 100Mbps

    Kung bago kang kliente then sa Plan 2099 100Mbps ka.

    Pero pwede mo ikutan yan....

    Apply ka mag Plan 1499 50Mbps 50% off for 1st 3 months

    After 3 months upgrade to Plan 1999 100Mbps

    Ginawa ng PLDT nang ganito para yung mga kagaya sa akin na atat mag tipid di pwede mag downgrade sa Plan 1599 50Mbps.

    sometimes it is better to chose multiple servers then parang olympics, yung tipong may 5 judges, highest and lowest score ignore, then the middle 3 i average mo

    siguro try
    1. yung default auto selected server
    2. japan
    3. singapore
    4. west coast usa
    5. somewhere in europe
