This is utter silliness came from PLDTDSL

Step-by-Step Procedures 
My Internet Speed is really low!

Tip 1 : Power Cycle Your Modem

Sometimes your computer’s performance is bogging down because it has been turned on for too long. To prevent this, employ power cycling, which is basically turning of your modem and your computer (remembering to shut down your computer properly – merely using the on-off switch without shutting down can damage your computer!), letting it rest for about two minutes, then restarting the whole system. Your connection speed should be slightly higher than it was before.

If you get an error message saying that the “Server has dropped the connection”, do a power cycle and it should reset your connection, also at a slightly higher speed.

If a power cycle does not help however, there are other tips that can help you improve your connection.

Power cycling?  What are they talking about?
Power Cycling... when you turn off the modem wait for a couple of minutes, turn it on again and pray to all available powers that be that you might have a faster connection this time...

@ calvin

Ako rin, I also do that - turning off and on my modem especially in the morning pag-open ng shop.  I have to wait 20 - 30 mins para bumilis ung speed ng internet ko.

my own choice... dati kasi, 128/64 download/upload ang prof personal. kaya napilitan ako mag biz. malay ko bang i-upgrade nila ang personal plan at un biz inde? unfair talaga...

That's wierd, my cousin is subscribed to the same package for almost a year now... but he was not required to upgrade his house phone to a business line. He needed the static IP to setup netmeeting with his american boss. My guess is the telephone and DSL Plan must have been registered using the company name, hence the requirement to upgrade to a business line.

2) It took us over a month to get our website configured as our ISP number was bungled (lost)  somewhere with Infocom and PLDT. Each was blaming each other. Me missed our project launch date (which cost us so much money). At this point PLDT was telling me that my package needed to be upgraded to 8k a month if I wanted my website to be viewed (wasn't that a silly recommendation)
This I don't understand... what is an "ISP number"... as far as I know, the URL is configured either with your domain name registrar's DNS server or your own private DNS server... the ISP's role is usually limited to providing Internet connections...

3) After migrating to PLDT DSL we rarely get internet speed above 5 mbps, our speed is even worst than the cable we had previously (Destiny)
5 mbps wow...  I wonder if the letter sender knows he's in the Philippines...
but I can only vouch for a friend whose internet connection provided by destiny rarely goes above 500kbps...

This really is unusual... better report them to DTI for false advertising... but our neighborhood internet cafe got their free PC delivered on the day they got their DSL service connected...

I'm not siding with PLDT here but if they really had these issues with PLDT then spreading this SPAM is not the answer... they have every right to report this matter to DTI... I'm sure they will be more than happy to help these people pin down the telco giant...
