  • ^^ Chromecast must be connected to a VPN as well. When you cast, Chromecast will stream directly to Disney+ servers instead of on your phone.

    The best way to use TV or cast devices is to use Smart DNS rather than a VPN. VPN is possible but must be set up on the router instead of on the phone only.

  • Apparently meron pala landline bundle sa Plan 2099 pero rerequest mo sa hotline. Hindi ko sure bakit hindi advertised sa website mismo. Plan 2499 and above lang meron sa website. Nag request ako around Monday pero sabi daw mga 1-2 days darating yung unit. Pero until now wala pa nag deliver. Though since hindi ko pa nasurrender yung PLDT landline unit ko, i plugged it to the ONT and it works (Globe updated the configuration on the ONT. The VoIP port was inactive and it was recently changed to Active)
  • sa mga may ipv6, hit or miss pa din ba yung DNS nyo? already tried different dns servers pero mas mabagal talaga minsan mag load vs ipv4.

  • Musta naman po ung globe plan 1599 naubusan kasi ng slot ng pldt sa condo kaya need magpalit
  • Bakit kapag nagispeedtest ako sa 5GHz sa umpisa naabot ko yung 150 MBps, pero after ilang minutes eh bumababa sa 30 MBps na lang yung speed, like sa 2.4Ghz. May mali kaya sa settings ng modem?
  • Hello! Just want to ask, based on your personal experiences, how long is the waiting time for new service applications? Applied online a week ago but still no updates received from a rep. Thank you!

    mas mabilis sa Globe agent kung new application. less than a week installed na basta avail ang facility ni GFiber.
  • my telephone's dialpad suddenly stop working yesterday. the tech then came to visit today to replace my busted unit.
    yun lang talaga ok sa globe, next day action after reporting an issue(on my case) most of the time.
  • hi everyone, anyone here around Merville, Paranaque? (specifically near South Admiral) How's the reliability of Gfibr in your area?
  • Hi everyone, has anyone encountered an issue with their GFiber plan where Globe is unable to update the speed profile of our account (e.g. actual speed you're getting is 50Mbps, but on the account details and billing it is already updated to 200Mbps)? I've had about 5 escalations already to no avail. Do note that I'm still paying the same 1899 monthly from when I first applied, it was originally 30Mbps, and was automatically upgraded to 35Mbps, then to my current 50Mbps; but months ago it should already be updated to 100Mbps, and now should be 200Mbps.

    The only "workaround" daw, that the business center reps suggested was to terminate the existing account and apply for a "new" line. Still on contract so I'll have to pay pre-termination fees as well, so I'm waiting until after the lock-in period but it is really frustrating. Did anyone hear of this similar issue? How did it go?
  • ^ang hirap naman nyan issue sa kanila yan eh dapat hindi ka nila pag bayarin since continue lang naman yung subsciption mo. na try mo na humanap ng mga agents thru phone? hanapin mo yung maayos kausap para mabilis yung action sa request mo.
  • anyone na nagpapalit ng huawei modem nila?... limited time offer lang daw (free of charge)... anong exact model no. na huawei modem pinalit?... opted not to kasi di available yung time ng technician sa freetime ko...
  • No connection here in Santolan, Pasig. Anyone else experiencing sa adjacent area? I think around 8pm kanina nawalan.
  • Kaka 1 month pa lang ng Globe Fiber account ko pero so far, sa 1 month na yun ay wala namang naging problem sa area ko: no slowdowns, no high latency/pings, no LOS (crossing fingers), kaya pina upgrade ko agad kanina to Plan 2499. I'm satisfied with the service so far, once na na-activate na yung landline, pwede na pa disconnect yung PLDT. Mejo hassle lang mag pa upgrade kapag new account pa lang, need pa mag pa increase ng credit limit sa Globe store bago maka upgrade since maliit lang ang starting CL pag 2099 ang initial plan, buti na approve agad yung increase CL request.

    In fairness, ang bilis din mag process ng upgrade sa Globe store, nag take effect agad after 2 hours, yung queue lang talaga ang matagal since madami tao haha:

  • Plan 1699 150mbps po ako pero yung speed ko nasa 50mbps lang on the average. yung 5g connection lang umaabot ng more than 150mbps. dapat po ba kahit hindi 5g connection gamitin ko aabot pa rin ng 150mbps? thank you.

    Theoretical limit po ng 2.4Ghz band is 50-70Mbps depending on the existing environment pa yan kung may other wireless devices po kayo like wireless phones. In your case, talagang 50Mbps po yan since ISP-provided ONU po yata ang gamit nyo.
