RED Fiber Broadband by Cignal

  • Question for any RED subscriber.

    Why did you choose your ISP?
  • Do you live in a neighbourhood, condo, apartment, village, Barangay, home owner's association without fiber? If you want it do the following.

    Write to your Home Owner's Association (HOA) or Barangay why there are no fiber ISPs in your area.

    When they approve of fiber ISP to provide service there invite fiber ISPs like PLDT, Globe, Converge and Sky to roll out service in your area.

    Odds are red tape or tamad lang ang HOA/Barangay as to why walang fiber.

    To prove to the fiber ISP & HOA that fiber has demand in your neighborhood then do a signature drive/petition among your neighbors who want the service as proof.

    Info should be as follows

    1) Name of home owner
    2) Install address of home owner
    3) Contact # of home owner
    4) Signature of home owner
  • Do you want to improve the wifi & LAN performance of your fiber 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

  • kamusta naman kaya mga naka RED? dati ito yung 1st choice ko, dahil sa business grade service, but now hindi na praktikal yung mga plan nila, compared to other ISP, sana tapatan din nila
  • @Hamz

    I tried applying. They ignored me.

    I got so desperate that I tried calling technical support to get to applications.

    Could not be reached.

    I'd stick with the Globe/PLDT/Converge in that order.
