^ Chrome has its own internal DNS cache that might have gotten contaminated with badly resolved names. PLDT's DNS servers are known to flake out sometimes and might have given your Chrome some food poisoning.

To fix go to: chrome://net-internals/#dns

and clear your host cache then go to

chrome://net-internals/#sockets

and flush sockets. Also check Chrome's proxy config in case something might have gotten set in there.
Alright. Thanks!

PLDT rolling out fiber in our area. Wreaking havok on gaming pings while they work though...

What's the catch? Seems too good to be true (assuming that we do have fibr in our area).

^When I upgraded to fibr... my monthly bill actually went down.
I used to pay ~6K for voice and 15 mbps DSL service, now it's down to 2899/month for a 50 mbps fibr plan.

the speed boost is only good for 3 or 6 months.  after that you go back to 50mbps which is your real speed.  and if you apply for the 20mbps plan, your upgrade would be to 50mbps.  the "no change in your monthly bill" assumes that you avail of the same amount as your current plan. 

also take note that your landline would now be connected to your router so if you turn off your router you also do not have landline service

I suppose there will be a new lock in period too.

Landline connected to router? So how do you call tech support when fibr is down?

if only the internet is down you would still be able to use the landline.  but if the fiber line is broken then youre screwed.  lolz!  a suggestion i read is that you use a smart mobile sim to call since there is no charge if you use that.  and if its a different network, you just dial 8888-171.  charges would apply if you do not use a smart sim though

It is the same problem with the old copper wires. If the wires are broken, you can't call.

oo nga pala.  tama nga.  another thing i forgot to mention is.  pag walang kuryente wala ka din landline.  yun pala.  unlike the copper wires where you could still use your phone even without electricity in your home

I have a 500VA UPS connected to my modem and router, and it outlasted a 40minute power outage here once, phone/internet works during the power-outage...

I have a DIY 12VDC output UPS connected to my NAS and PLDT Fibre modem. It can last a power outage longer than 1 hour. I leave it unattended in my office. One time, when power went out at night, the modem lost internet connection even with the UPS. We only restored internet after manually I rebooted the Fibre modem. I no longer put the modem on the UPS. Just the NAS na lang.

I switched from Globe DSL to PLDT Fibre the moment Fibre became available. Because Globe DSL uses remote DSLAM within our village, phone/internet service is also cut when the Meralco power is lost.

After a couple months from installation of Fibre, PLDT agents start calling and selling you various add-ons and upgrades to your Fibre subscription.

AFAIK some of the new 'Fibre' deployments are actually VDSL. Not a big deal for most customers because throughput is similar, but your latency and uptime might not be good as an actual fibre connection.

I think VDSL is deployed to locations where fiber optic cables cannot easily be installed. Those are mostly condos where existing POTS cannot easily be replaced. It is Fibre up to the wiring closet and then the last few meters to the condo unit use the existing copper wire.
