Title: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: jojitb on April 30, 2008, 07:34:14 AM
Just noticed significant speed reduction these past few days.   I'm being throttled to a max of 100KBps.  I'm on the 3mbps plan.

Checked my router and found out that I am now being assigned IPs in the 58.69.xx.xx  range, instead of the usual 210-211.xxx.xxx.xxx before.

Anybody else experiencing the same issues?  Bad trip naman na PLDT yan.

my download/upload speeds haven't changed but my latency has gone bad...

I used to have ping times of less than 100ms to Singapore servers and an average of 300ms to US servers... lately, ping times to Singapore servers have gone up to 200 - 250 ms and more than 400ms to US servers.

so it's not an isolated case...

before I left for china (last april 4), I was getting 400KB/second on a private tracker... but when I got back (April 30), I was getting at most 100KB/second...

Post by: alikishi on May 12, 2008, 11:07:35 AM
After calling 172 to report my "slowdown" last week, a PLDT technician just called me again to check if my connection is ok again.  I told him that it was running but I wasn't getting the same bandwidth I was getting before I left for abroad last April 4.

He then told me that according to something, I'm really supposed to get 1 mbps only and that it is already fast.  He then mentioned a lot of terms such as NGN, etc.  Gusto ko nga sabihin kaagad na wag nya akong bolahin kasi hindi ako tanga na tulad ng ibang subscribers.

He then proceeded to show me a document stating that I'm on the myDSL professional but with only 1 mbps.  If this is the case, i will just have to terminate my connection and check if myDestiny would give me a better connection for 1/3 the cost

also on the old myDSL Pro plan.   Pero yun CS nang PLDT na kausap ko sabi 2.2mbps daw talaga dapat ako

I'll be having destiny cable internet connected on wednesday.  Hopefully all will go well.  I have also asked a friend who works in pldt to expedite my case to the area manager.  If I don't get back my original bandwidth, I'll have my account terminated.  If destiny sucks in my area, balik nalang ako sa 999 package ng PLDT...

1mbps is plan 999 here in cebu, but upon subscribing your are notified that 384kbps is the only guaranteed speedrate.... figures..
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: Tranced Moogle on May 13, 2008, 01:03:03 AM
Initially on plan 1995 and currently enjoying the most of it at ~1.8 Mbps.  We have already downgraded our account to plan 990 and will investigate their new advertised plan of theirs.

Torrents are usually at 100 KB/s. Only updates from Ubuntu servers are enjoying the 2mbps throughput. That's why we have decided that '384' kbps should be enough for most net activites. We rarely view video streaming sites anyway in our household. Although downloading those linux dependencies and updates in a snap would be missed.

Paano ba magpaputol nang PLDT DSL?

Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: alikishi on May 13, 2008, 02:00:33 PM
jojitb, I already inquired on downgrading and disconnection.

For downgrading, all you have to do is call them via 172 pero may 500 pesos transaction fee WTF...
For disconnection, all you ahve to do is bring the modem (i guess pati lan wire) and the splitter to their business office (nearest to my place is SM North)
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: Tranced Moogle on May 14, 2008, 01:24:09 AM
The owner of our DSL line just went to a PLDT branch and told them we want a downgrade. I haven't asked for any of the details yet but I was told that the new plan will just take effect after one week. I assume there will be no need of reconnecting the lines or changing the modem for that particular plan.

Post by: jojitb on May 14, 2008, 09:29:16 AM
@alikishi

the lineman just called up.  our old bandwidth has now been restored.  tama suspetsa ko. we were again moved to a different port, same as what happened a couple of years ago. 

accdg to the lineman I was included in the cisco system migration (58.x.x.x) when I should have been retained in the erx (?) (210-212.x.x.x) system.
 
Ibinalik niya ako sa erx ulit and now I'm at 3mbps again!  So check your IP address, kung nasa 58.x.x.x ka malamang nasa cisco system ka na.  Umiikot pa daw ito sa cebu kaya mabagal.

Nevertheless, I'll be checking out globelines.  Saving 1k for the same speed (2k for 3mbps) is mighty tempting.  pambili din nang unleaded at bigas yun.
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?

Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: Louie on May 14, 2008, 08:24:06 PM
good luck on that, guys.

usually for a change in speed they have to provision that speed for you and in case they do change your port then the max speed is really dependent on how far the route your circuit takes from your modem to the dslam/remote terminal. the farther away you are, the lower the max speed.

really sucks that pldt suddenly switches ports or provisioning on you. technically isn't that grounds for suing since they're changing your service without your consent?
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: jojitb on May 15, 2008, 12:08:56 PM
kaya nga nagtataka yun CSR nang PLDT kasi  na-iset na daw nila yun speed ko to 2.2mbps pero yun actual speeds ko nasa 1mbps pa din.  Nangyari na din yan dati kaya nun una pa lang sinabi ko na sa kanila na check the ports pero ayaw maniwala nun csr.  buti meron pa silang marunong na lineman.

I'm getting > 3mbps now.  kaya nababawasan na din yun queue sa utorrent ko.  hehehe

Update: after calling up support and ranting a bit , a woman called back and had me test the connection again, no change.

They pretty much said im on the legacy network and cant do much about it ,she said she'll try to transfer me to the NGN network.

Hopefully the situation is like Jojitb's problem, and a port transfer might do the trick.

Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: calvin on May 15, 2008, 09:24:38 PM
The NGN-Legacy reasoning used by CSRs are all bull...

Before the existence of NGN, everyone was using the Legacy networks.
If what they say about the Legacy network (not capable of speeds more than 1mbps) is true, then how were they able to offer corporate DSL plans of 2.5 mbps then?

I for one am still on the legacy network, but I can reach download speeds of 2 mbps on well-seeded torrents.

Post by: ^_^japol on May 16, 2008, 11:11:12 AM
Update: pldt dude came here this morning and did a inspection of the modem, he said he fixed a problem with a cable (which i almost laughed) , checked the bandwidth and although the upload speed was back up to 512 kbps, download is still about 1100-1300mbps which is still NOT even close 2.2mbps (from what the tech told me), its still struggling to beat 110KB/sec on heavily seeded torrents.

Called again and basically heard the same thing, so i guess thats it, just have to wait if they can really do anything about it.

Probably the only reason why im still keeping this connection is its been very realiable pero sayang parin yung binabayad, kaya ill see if anything happens.

those are exactly the same symptoms I had before they put me in a different port.  When you call up a csr, ask them to get a tech from your CO (Central Office) to call you.  Tapos sabihin mo kung puwede niya itry ilipat sa ibang port.

Or just downgrade to the 999 plan.  your getting the speeds of that plan anyway.

For almost a week, I have trouble connecting to internet with my dsl.  Finally, yesterday my dsl was restored. The only problem is I was only getting 8-100kbps of my supposedly 1Mbps PLDT DSL plan. This morning I called again the tech support to report the sluggish connection. This afternoon until now (1AM) I am getting 1200+kbps on my bandwidth tests on speedtest.net and pldt play bandwidth test, far above my highest bandwidth before at just ~800-900kbps. I'm hoping that this bandwidth increase will last. ^_^

I got disconnected around 3PM last Friday...with the DSL light blinking for about 3 minutes.

When the connection was restored, I tested my speed using speedtest.net... my ping time improved from an average of 250ms to 150ms.
download speeds remained the same but my upload speed went down to 350kbps.

now, I can no longer watch youtube videos without having to pause the player to give the stream time to download.

for the past week, my connection has slow and intermittent. i had tried playing guild wars with thakker but my ping was so bad it was hitting 1k+ ms, according to guild wars' indicator. thakker told me to ask pldt's support if our connection at home can be transferred to another node.

the csr told me that he could not just do it because we would be transferred to another platform. i didn't ask him to elaborate on what it means, and since i'm frustrated, i just told him to send him someone to our house this weekend, and i'll be talking to that person.

calling for support is always a pain, the questions are the same. yeah, i know it's their standard and protocol, but still.

"sir, may router po ba kayo? baka po yung router ang may problema. try mo nyo pong direct connection."
which i always respond with "sinabi ko na kanina yung problema. yung modem na bigay nyo, namamatay yung ilaw ng adsl. so kahit irekta ko yan, kung walang ilaw, walang connection."

hay... and i am thinking of upgrading our plan to a higher one.

Apparently, the GW lag issue is not an isolated case.. some of us were experiencing lag spikes recently. hehe. That night, I also experience severe lag spikes din. Kaya nag dc na ako.

kagabi naman siguro mga 2 hours paputol-putol. yung download speed ko di umabot ng 30kbps. pati browsing, tinamaan. tapos nag-timeout pag nag-ping ako.

sana pag nagpunta yung taga-pldt sa weekend, makita nya yung problema. baka mangyari, maayos yung connection pag tiningnan nya, tapos pagdating ng gabi, paputol-putol na naman,

Ah ha, my net (ADSL light) went out a few days ago... totally out. 

Technicians checked, replaced the DareGlobal modem (which I wasn't using anyway, since I bought my own DLink 520T) and replaced it with the Zyxel P-R660-D1...which looks like a nice modem/router... sayang.  Anyway, they told my sis that the DareGlobal was being phased out... (@!#!@$ them for giving that to me in the first place to replace my reliable Nokia...and forced me to buy the DLink) 

Anyway, wala parin... told the CSR before it's on their end.. not me.  Anyway, the day later, sabi ayos na... kaso the technician fiddled with my cables and mixed up the phone lines... I had to come home late to find the DSL modm talking to the phone.

So... it's their setup.  I'm back online only about Thursday...3Mbps ulit.

I suggest you listen to your phone line (without the filter..) if mainggay, baba talaga yung SNR nyo...  it's the phone wires outside that's coming to contact or poor contact if that's the case.  If hindi naman maiingay, connection na nila sa station nila...

Is PLDT filtering torrent traffic?

I noticed that torrent speeds go down a lot during early evening, and weekends/holidays.  I can safely say that only the torrent speeds are slow because I tried downloading Acad 2009 trial from the Autodesk site and I got 300KBps++.

Maybe it's just me. But I guess it's ok na rin.

Experiencing the same thing. I've done a couple of ping tests and traceroutes to different public IPs.

Nation-wide servers from PLDT seem to respond correctly.
Yahoo, whois.net, apnic.com, and a root DNS server looks effed up.

Google's (72.14.203.103) fine though. Hehehe.

On a related note, the PLDT field engineer came by our home and told me there was an advisory of an current problem with I-Gate.

the tech told me that a "fault" has been discovered in a submarine cable to China and Taiwan again...

in other words, we have no choice but to wait until this "fault" has been repaired...

"Fault" - most probably a ruptured or cut optical cable

Ok, at least that explains the Internet slowness I've been experiencing since starting around late last night.

Downloading updates from Microsoft is very slow (normally very fast for me -- around 200-220kb/sec downloads, right now, it keeps on stalling)

I tried checking www.speedtest.net -- the page fails to completely load (tried maybe a dozen times -- from late last night till now). I did get it to load once and it shows I have a normal connection rate (ie. from my PC to PLDT). However, Internet browsing is still slow for many sites.

Any news on where this Internet cable fault lies?

Here's a rough guide to the relationship between copper distance and maximum data rate for DSL subscribers.
All that's needed now is to know the location of the DSLAM we're connected to... so we could at least estimate if we are getting what we're paying for.

I was also led to believe that PLDT has a "new" system that needs their new modem.
for several weeks, I had been getting disconnected regularly (8am, 12pm, 8pm, 12 am... on the dot).
reports to tech support was a futile attempt at getting the thing fixed or at least getting a straight answer as to what the problem was.
all they did was do "remote tests" and diagnose... a PLDT tech, who tested my line, found nothing wrong (as usual) on my end either.
he suggested that I be migrated to IP-DSLAM from legacy (even though there was nothing wrong with my present setup - except for the regular disconnection). but in doing so, he told me that he has to replace my Nokia modem with the new Zyxel modem... since the Nokia, apparently, wasn't "compatible" with the "new system". I told him to wait until the migration was done before changing the modem.
when the "supposed" migration was done (after 2 weeks)... the Nokia modem would sync but I couldn't surf. for the next several days, I'd call up tech support to report the problem... and again this resulted to nothing.
after 5 days, I stormed the business office and insisted on making an appointment with their supervisor. the business center agents stone-walled my attempt at doing so...
I went out and entered the building through the employees entrance, I told the guard that I had an appointment with supervisor and I was allowed in.

As luck would have it, the technical supervisor for my area was leaving the business supervisor's office as I told the secretary that I would like to talk to the supervisor to file a complaint regarding the inaction of the technical department.
He approached me and I told him about my problem.He got my account details and problem history... he then told me that he'd personally attend to it. that evening, my connection was restored... with my trusty old Nokia modem still going strong.

My TF2 ping went up from 50 to 200 back in December since the War update.  Around 3 days ago, it bumped up to 300.  Ugh.

Cainta area.  I have no problem with the speed, I always get the maximum speed, but the ping became atrocious.

that's the main reason I invested on a small AVR and UPS for both. The modem and router may not be that expensive but it could offer ample security against the down time and hassle of having it replaced when it gets fried due to electrical surges (which is inevitable in this Country).

Malayo po ba quality ng PLDT sa Bayan? Lalo na po pag nagkakaproblema ang ISP. Ngaun nasa 3,360 for 1mb connection ko po and PLDT is offering 4k for 3.5mb. TIA ^^

PLDT agreed to my request to convert our line to NGN, kaso they said we have to change our phone number. ganun ba talaga?

that's what they told me too when I requested to be transferred to NGN so I declined.
but after a year or so, they informed me that my account was scheduled for migration to NGN and that they would have to replace my static IP... so I now have a different IP but the same phone number - go figure.
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: jojitb on September 30, 2010, 10:15:17 AM
Actually, I can live with changing the phone number, ang tanong eh sulit ba?  Is it worth it?

Kasi I was and am only getting 1.5mbps on both my previous (Pro) and current (downgraded to plan 1995) plans.  Kahit anong complaint gawin ko, kahit naka-address pa sa presidente nang PLDT, 1.5mbps pa din max na speed ko.
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: calvin on September 30, 2010, 10:57:25 AM
it still depends on the area/node that you belong to
switching to NGN only involves changing network routing and port on PLDT's end...
thus if your network woes originate from their end, switching to NGN could solve your problem... but, if the problem is on the "last mile"(after the DSLAM) of the connection (i.e. line noise, crosstalk, distance limit, corroded/grounded cables) you'd still be plagued with the same problems.
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: jojitb on September 30, 2010, 11:24:45 AM
My line is capable of much more speed than what I am getting. The problem I believe is that the people in the C.O. always transfer me to a slower port. When I complain they just put me back to the faster port then after a few months they put me back in the slower port. Siguro ngayon wala na sila mapaglagyan sa akin kaya nakapako na ako sa 1.5mbps.

The main reason I think is that they prioritize business dsl customers and allocate those high-speed ports to them instead of ordinary residental customers.  Ang dami kasing net/game shops dito sa Cainta!

So, will NGN be worth it for me?
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: calvin on September 30, 2010, 12:34:29 PM
afaik, residential and commercial/business accounts do not share the same ports... at least in my cousin's area (Proj 8).
When he applied for mybiz last year, PLDT informed him that there are no available ports in his area... but his application for a residential DSL was approved - and his office was just next door.

How's MyDSL?

I've been using SkyBroadband 2mbps, i'm satisfied with the speed. I've just moved to another house that isn't covered by SkyBroadband yet. The landlord has an existing 384mbps Plan 990. I'll probably upgrade that to 2mbps.

Does PLDT block ports or incoming connections? I need to access my network remotely.

Does PLDT do traffic-shaping/prioritization? This would suck for BT or VoIP

thanks
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: jojitb on October 07, 2010, 05:32:29 PM
PLDT is the best pag BT and VOIP kasi they do not block ports.  Kaso they are not the cheapest. equivalent speeds are almost half the price of its competitors.

My PLDT DSL latency and upload speed became much worse starting yesterday. Download speed still the same though.

MyDSL Plan 1995
before (quite consistent):
D/L: ~2050 kbps
U/L: 500-600 kbps
latency: 45-50 ms ping

since yesterday, it consistently gets these results:
D/L: ~ 2050 kbps
U/L: 100-110 kbps
latency: 75-80 ms ping

I tried shutting down the DSL modem and the router for several minutes and restarting them. Also direct connect modem without using router, got same results.

MyDSL was acting weird late last night...
for about 10 to 15 minutes, I was getting 404 errors on all sites except google, hotmail/msn and yahoo.
all the links that google churned out got 404 errors

what happened was, all DNServers timed out... but I could connect to the sites using IP addresses.
All the public DNS I tried timed out... google, opendns, etc.
GRC's DNSbench reported "One or more of this system's 2 nameservers are dead!" for ALL.

then as eerily as it started, it just went back to normal...

I asked him and he said he's on Plan 999.  I'm on Plan 1995, which is 2.0mbps, no change. Konti na lang speed difference of 1.5mbps vs 2.0mbps, if Plan 999 is really 1.5mbps now, I guess I'll downgrade my plan para menos gastos..

At least that's what I noticed when I used 3 different friends & relatives PCs and benchmarked their PLDT DSL (all are Plan 999) connection using Speedtest.Net (that was about 2-3 months ago).

Yung mga nasa Plan 1995 seems like no upgrade, still same 2.0mbps, 100% more payment, yet only 33% increase of speed. :(

A super archaic plan 2500.
From before there was plan 999, 2000 or 3000.

I have a feeling the speed is mostly because we're probably the only subscriber (or one of a few anyways) within a good bit of neighborhood. Been that way for a long while now. Basically we've always had good speed ever since way back (we're either fast, or disconnected hehe).

4Mbps is actually quite high for us. We normally sustain 2Mbps, occasionally spiking up to 3Mbps with multiple downloads (my pc is doing 200kB/s on utorrent, and another 100-150kB/s on jDownloader as i type this) on certain hours of the day.

me neither...  but then again, I hit 400kbps on torrents.  But can't seem to reflect the same on any of speedtest or dslreport's bandwidth testing... 

But without torrents, we can do two different Hulu plus streams without hiccups at home.  Which satisfies me and my sis needs I guess. (we're cutting our skycable subscription finally next month).

Plan 990.

Speed tests shows 2.5mbps, torrent speeds are at 148kb/s ( 1.3mbps) but If I grab something from PLDT"s server like installers from Level-up games I get 250-500kb/s

1.2Gb in 33 minutes seems to come out to an average of 600kb/s or  5Mbps bandwidth, right?

I don't have disconnections but speed to and from the mainland has become exceedingly slow...
it even affected speeds from MS servers... a few months ago, download speeds could easily reach 500kbps, now it hardly breaks 100kbps

at least P2P has been able to utilize the speed upgrade though... with the enough seeders, it could hit 800+kbps

I also had similar issue sometimes -- it just seems surfing just suddenly gets disconnected sometimes, I have to reboot the modem (seems to happen maybe every 1 to 2 days, sometimes lucky, maybe 5 days or 1 week, but I don't think I had that issue several months ago. This issue seems to occur within the last few months.)

Any idea if this this is a PLDT-wide issue that affects most PLDT DSL users?

Plan 990 here in Iligan

From a legacy line which can maintain 50-60 Kb/s when in torrent. But after shifting to NGN line it drops to 30-40 Kb/s.

Pero di ko talaga maiintindihan ay kung bakit ang advertise speed ng Plan 990 ay 384 Kb/s while others have reported that Plan 990 sometimes can get speeds up to 1.2 Mb/s, katulad lang sa barkada ko.

Plan 990 is a bundled plan (dsl, phone and watchpad) speed has always been 384kbps
Plan 999 is an "add-on" MyDSL plan with speeds up to 1.5mbps

Plan 990 is usually only given to first time PLDT subscribers(no existing PLDT phone) while Plan 999 is given to current PLDT subscribers.

A few days ago I notice slowdown downloading from the big servers (ie. Microsoft, nVidia, AMD). I was downloading updates and drivers for a PC and a laptop -- where before, I generally get the max speed of nearly 380kb/s (PLDT Plan 1995 - 3Mbps connection rate as tested with pldt.speedtest.net). 

But the past few days, the download speeds were only around 150kb/sec or so (even though re-testing with pldt.speedtest.net confirms my bandwidth with PLDT server is still 3mbps).  Is there a problem with the Internet pipe from PLDT server going to the main Internet backbone (ie. those that connect to Microsoft/nVidia/AMD)?

BTW, I am now at plan 999, still getting 1.5mbps. I've been getting 1.5mbps when I was in plan 3000. downgraded  to plan 2000 and still got 1.5mbps. Now I guess I am getting what I paid for. (I got charged 500 pesos for downgrading fee)

you're either at the very edge of your service area or there could be  a very bad connection between your place and the DSLAM if you've had that experience...

ask the tech how far you are from the DSLAM so you can at least check the maximum theoretical speed you could have

Hmm. So these are the important parameters that should be asked from the PLDT DSL technician... Will keep those questions in mind next time.

So, the technician has a device to measure the Signal Strength (how far from source) and also the Attain and SnR of the telephone box?

para daw sure, papalitan daw yun buong linya namin simula sa poste ngayong sunday. saka meron daw foreign volts. di ko alam kung saan nanggagaling yun foreign na voltage na sinasabi nila.

Wow, ang tagal niyo na pala DSL user..

In my case, my PLDT DSL started with Efficient Networks SpeedStream 5100 DSL modem. However, its power brick adapter burned out once, which was replaced (the power adapter only) by the PLDT technician. During another occasion when I complained about degraded speed, I think the PLDT DSL technician suggested to replace the old DSL modem to the PLDT Zyxel P660R-D1 (the earlier black model); so far it seems to be pretty stable.. (have updated the firmware a couple of times already -- from stock PLDT-modded firmware to Zyxel-official firmware, then updated once more to an updated PLDT-modded firmware which I found from the Internet)

Top speed of my plan 990 connection has dropped from 640kbps to 450kbps.

An agent called us last weekend. I told her we don't want to upgrade to plan 1299 (up to 1mbps). Maybe I am just paranoid but they could be squeezing us to upgrade.

For now, it doesn't really matter. I am using this MyDSL for torrent downloading using my NAS. It's just a couple of TV episodes a day. For web browsing, my Smart Bro plug it postpaid is quite fast these days. My son even uses it for gaming (HON, etc).

where did you find it?  and what was the mod for?

I believe it's the firmware included in new PLDT-supplied Zyxel P660R-D1 modems. Since my PLDT-supplied Zyxel P660R-D1 still has the very old firmware version, I decided to check if using a new firmware helps.

I believe when I first got the Zyxel P660R-D1 from PLDT, its firmware was this one - V3.40(APG.0) 11/10/2006  (PLDT logo):
http://myguidemaster.blogspot.com/2012/01/pldt-zyxel-p-660r-d1-original-firmware.html

I then updated it to this one -- v3.40(AGE.4)C0  1/15/2010   (official Zyxel logo)
http://us.zyxel.com/Support/Download-Library-Result.aspx?keyword=P-660R-D1

Then later, I found this --  V3.40(APG.4)B4 06/14/2010  - has PLDT logo:
http://www.pinoydsl.net/threads/new-pldt-firmware-for-zyxel-p660-d1.18952/page-2
(download link is inside)

The official Zyxel site currently has this --  3.40(AGE.5)C0  5/27/2011:
(forgot if I have tried it out or not yet though)
(use the above Zyxel download link -- perhaps someone can test it and post results)

I'll have to rummage through my old files to check if I still have a screenshot of the V3.40(APG.0) 11/10/2006 firmware (don't have time right now to reload old firmware to the modem..)

But the differences I noticed are that when I used AGE.4 (official Zyxel) is that it uses ADSL2+ mode, which seems OK..
But when I used APG.4 (PLDT-modded), it will use ADSL_G.DMT (and saw some differences)...

I did some reading (kindly verify) and I think ADSL2+ is supposed to be superior (error correction or something), but G.DMT, although slightly less robust, could actually be slightly faster due to less error correction. Thus if the signal is good, then less error-correction (G.DMT) might be faster overall; whereas on a poorer signal, ADSL2+ mode might be better (better error-correction) -- -that's what I recall reading -- someone please correct me if it's wrong or the other way around.

AGE.4 firmware (official):
(http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/9769/zyxelfirmwareforupload4.jpg)

APG.4 firmware (from PLDT):
(http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/7707/zyxelfirmwareforupload2.jpg)

In my tests, the download speed of the 2 firmwares were quite similar:
the AGE.4 shows 3611-3612 kbps DL rate; whereas the APG.4 shows 3616 kbps DL rate -- very consistent over multiple testing

However, the UL (upload) rate (not exactly the upload speed: just the "rate" that is shown) differs in every test I made:
here the AGE.4 shows 819kbps (which is one of the highest results I got already; sometimes it goes quite low -- like 500+ or 600+ kbps only).
Whereas the APG.4 shows consistently higher UL rate (here it shows 864kbps, I think it can go slightly higher in a very few instances), but generally it shows 700-800+ kbps.

Doing Speedtest.net speed testing, the APG.4 shows consistently higher upload speed (I made several screenshots but will have to reduce them to forum-postable-sizes before I post them here...) than the AGE.4 -- at least in my testing.

Typically the 3612kbps DL rate translates to around 3100kbps SpeedTest.net result
Whereas the 864kbps UL rate translates to around 700+kbps Speedtest.net result

Getting a 500+kbps UL rate, it translates to around 400kbps Speedtest.net result only (uploading becomes a LOT slower than when it was uploading at 700+ kbps).
 

I'm still trying to figure out what is the overhead (which can vary) between the modem-reported "rate" vs actual speedtest.net result.  (the above result shows around 16% overhead between "reported rate" in WebGUI and actual bandwidth speed test)


other notes:
I recall that the APG.0 and AGE.4  admin-login passwords are:
admin/1234

whereas the APG.4 admin-login password is:
adminpldt/1234567890

(there are 2 levels of logging into the P660R-D1 -- one is the ordinary user login -- you'll notice less settings shown and some can't be changed. While using the admin login, one can change more settings, which are now visible in the Admin login to the zyxel modem)

~~~~~

since there doesn't seem to be any firmware update release notes, I'm not sure what's the difference between the oficial Zyxel and PLDT-modded firmwares apart from these 2 observations:

PLDT-modded has:
a) PLDT logo in the modem's web GUI interface; and its "Admin" mode password is adminpldt/1234567890
b) it uses ADSL_G.DMT by default (you could still manually set it differently to say, ADSL2+, I think)

whereas Zyxel's has:
a) Zyxel logo in web GUI; "Admin" mode password is admin/1234
b) it uses ADSL2+ mode by default (at least it occurs more often in my DSL connection testing)

Does anyone have any newer PLDT firmwares for the P660R-D1? (eg. those who just applied for PLDT DSL recently most likely will have the latest PLDT firmware pre-installed on the PLDT-supplied P660R-D1 modem.

pldtmydsl.net Plan 1299 gets a free upgrade from 768kbps to 1Mbps

Is this the Plan 1299 with bundled landline + DSL?

yes.

Apparently, they're giving all plans a slight bump up in speed.
do i have to request for an upgrade or is it done automatically? thanks!

The customer support agent that I talked to said that since the upgrade is "company-initiated", it's going to be done automatically in batches.  He couldn't give me specifics on the batches or if I am in the current batch of those being currently upgraded.  He said all upgrades would probably finish by June 30.  I'm still at 768kbps (actually around 750kbps).

They currently have this promo that when you upgrade your 990 to 1299, you'll get a free wifi modem and up to 1Mbps.  Too bad I already upgraded my plan last February. :huh:

@dta

I currently have V3.40(AGE.4) | 12/07/2009.

If there's no apparent improvement with the PLDT version, I'll probably just stick with this one.  It's been stable since day 1 in router mode.

wallywest,

is the PLDT-supplied DSL modem connected in ADSL2+ mode or is it using ADSL_G.DMT mode?

Can you monitor the DL and UL rate? (try multiple times, or power on/off the modem at different times and try to jot down the UL/DL rate changes)

has anyone applied for a dsl plan lately?

i applied for a plan last monday (1.5mbps, 999 + landline on top) and they said it would take 2-3 weeks to install. how come it's taking a while now, diba dati days lang? ortigas area. i can't apply for any other provider since the condo is exclusive to pldt daw.

Mine took 4 weeks before the technicians came in 2009. I made 1 follow up call on the 3rd week. According to PinoyDSL, it can take 1-2 months and 2-3 follow up calls for some people. Yung "a few days" is applicable only to those with a PLDT landline already. Kapag new accounts and new landline, matagal talaga.

Congrats, calvin.  That practically doubled the downstream bandwidth.

How did you request a cable change (what conditions?)

I told them that lately, I always get disconnected every time it rains (fib)... then if I lift the receiver, I hear static noise (sometimes true  >:D).

A DSL tech then came over and checked the signal drop from the distribution box to the modem. In my case, he says signal at the box was 23 db... when he checked the signal on my end, it dropped to 7 db... now with the new cable, it was @ 12db (which means they can give me speeds of up to 10 mbps with room to spare  :happy:)

You guys better stop hogging all the bandwidth, lol. Our PLDT connection is so bad lately. The DSL signal doesn't go but the default gateway keeps dropping packets like it's nobody's business. Technician on the other end of the line had no idea what I'm talking about.

PLDT techs won't be able to diagnose/understand that problem because PLDT (the Telco division) isn't the one handling the gateway. Our country's backbone is handled by another company - PLDT affiliated but a totally different group.

^ PLDT's Zyxel allows switching of adsl protocols - albeit one needs to use telnet to accomplish it.

Curious, how is that done?

So far, I've noticed the ADSL protocol changed when I used the official Zyxel firmware (AGE.x firmware version) vs using the "official" PLDT firmware (APG.x firmware version).

With Zyxel's official firmware, the ADSL protocol defaults to "ADSL2+" whereas with PLDT firmware, it uses "ADSL G.dmt"

with Zyxel official firmware:
(http://[url=http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/9769/zyxelfirmwareforupload4.jpg]http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/9769/zyxelfirmwareforupload4.jpg[/url])
(http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/9769/zyxelfirmwareforupload4.jpg)

with PLDT firmware:
(http://[url=http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/7707/zyxelfirmwareforupload2.jpg]http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/7707/zyxelfirmwareforupload2.jpg[/url])(http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/7707/zyxelfirmwareforupload2.jpg)

The difference I noticed was that the PLDT firmware (ADSL G.dmt mode) was slightly faster at download (from 3mbps [Zyxel] to 3.2mbps tops [PLDT]) and notably faster at upload (upload can be as slow as 400kbps to 700kbps tops [Zyxel], and with PLDT firmware, it can reach 800kbps occasionally, and more of the time is at least 600kbps).

I almost always hear the PLDT technician mention about "ports" when they're configuring the PLDT DSL connection.

Is there some other way of showing those info, aside from what I use: which is to configure the PC to use 192.168.1.1 as Gateway? (ie. to be able to log in to the PLDT DSL modem's GUI, I have to reconfigure the LAN TCP/IP properties), and then revert back to "Obtain IP address automatically" to have normal DSL Internet.

My PLDT mole just informed me that someone or something screwed up PLDT's network while they were doing a major upgrade... she says their whole network is affected. Apparently,  it started with the planned migration and speed upgrade last summer... but one "bigshot" network guru thought or decided it was just a small glitch which can be ignored and dealt with after the migration/upgrade. Now the whole technical department has gone sleepless for days trying to solve and restore stability.

Is there an e-mail address I can send this to? I don't want to spend an hour with technical support with them trying to check if it's something on my local connection.

Amazing. My ping to the router regularly spikes as well. Maybe it's their stupid fucking prolink router after all.

Yep looks like the router.
Ping your own NIC next? Or another PC on your LAN.

Used different laptops and got the same result. I then direct connected my laptop using an ethernet cable and got much lower pings with much more consistent results. Even, then though, it would spike to 200ms. Probably this Prolink router can't handle being a modem and a router at the same time? I haven't even enabled QoS on it.

PLDT just issued me a new modem... I reported that I was experiencing a sudden slowdown that required several restarts before my modem syncs to a "good" speed.

they issued this... a wireless-n Zyxel modem

Coincidence? When I was using the PLDT WIFI modem, my WAN IP range started with a 49 but now on the Zyxel modem it's on an IP starting with a 112. I wonder if there's any difference.

Think they'll change mine? Its pretty stable, but tends to overheat after a day or two of operation.

PLDT replaced my old Zyxel modem with that new one even though it wasn't broken.  I wasn't using the old modem since I upgraded to an Encore router/modem.

When I was trying to diagnose my previous DSL issues -- whether it was the PLDT-supplied DSL modem, or my Buffalo wifi-router; I bought a DSL modem/wifi-router (I managed to get a modem/wifi-g/VoIP-router on sale @ Php1.5k).

When I used the "DSL modem + Buffalo router" combination versus using the "ADSL modem/wifi/VoIP-gateway-router", I also get different IP addresses... IIRC, different ranges too.

(haven't figured out how the VoIP-gateway features on the said router works though, it seems to require a SIP account or something...)

what PLDT DSL plans can avail of this modem? Is it extra cost or only applicable to certain higher plans?

PLDT very kindly decided to double my bandwidth just this morning.

We were on an ancient (but fast) PPPoE plan, and all of a sudden authentication stopped working. Was instructed by 171 to switch the router to DHCP mode so I did, and voila! Instant speed!

Parang ang taas naman ng attenuation.

We were on an ancient (but fast) PPPoE plan, and all of a sudden authentication stopped working. Was instructed by 171 to switch the router to DHCP mode so I did, and voila! Instant speed!

Congrats! So there are still PLDT DSL that are using PPPoE these days? Our PLDT DSL was on PPPoE during the first 1 or 2 years of subscription (medyo mabagal and there are somewhat regular downtimes), but ever since it was switched to DHCP, there were much less downtimes experienced -- that was already about 3 years ago, IIRC.

What kind of attenuation values should we look for?   Would using a different ADSL modem possibly also affect attenuation values (eg. instead of the PLDT Zyxel DSL modem, say using a different brand DSL modem/router)?

All corporate/business DSL accounts with static IPs still use PPPoE

Attenuation is controlled at data center end... the lower attenuation the better/faster the attainable speed.

hindi naman masyado drastic ang agawan ng bandwidth for DSL... unlike cable internet.
since sa DSL, bandwidth distribution happens at the nodes and links between nodes are in the gigabit speeds.
sa cable internet, distribution occurs at the service location so more subscribers mean more severe slowdowns.

I see. thanks for the explanation. I've also "sort of" know that's true, but is there some way of quantifying them? (actual experiments comparing DSL vs cable for instance?)

hindi ba minsan kulang ang allocated speed sa dsl tapos madami sobrang subscribers?  parang may nabasa kasi ako na ganun.  di ata na calculate ng mabuti ang number of subscribes kaya mas mababa ang speed na nakukuha ng lahat ng subscribers.  instead of 2mbps lahat ng certain group, nagiging 1.5mbps lang lahat kahit ang binayaran nila ay 2mbps.  im just not sure kung nangyayari pa ito sa ngayon. dati ko pa kasi din nabasa ito

How is everyone's DSL connection. Mine can't connect. I called 172 and they said that they are having network problems. Looks like eastern Metro Manila is affected as the rep said that Pasig, Marikina, Taytay and Cainta as among the areas affected.

Yes, it was bad last night. Pasig/Cainta boundary area along Imelda/Felix ave. Around 7PM, I lost connectivity. To regain it, I had to reboot the modem to re-sync. No, it's not a line problem. ADSL numbers are fine. After rebooting, I would again lose internet connectivity after only 10 mins. Too bad I left my backup Smart Bro dongle in the office. It seemed to stabilize after 10PM.

Got my new myDSL line last week and they issued me this modem:

Is it possible to go with this setup? I have two DD-WRT flashed routers that I would want to use.

(https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9096229/network.png)

It is possible but if you're going WDS, just make sure both routers use the same chip manufacturer (atheros, broadcom or ralink)

latency within their network has gone up to triple digits...

Diba the pings from tracert are from your system to those routers? It might be a line quality issue over there because I've been getting max 50ms pings to any router within PLDT's network.

Just curious, I've read a little about QoS (basic setting) but don't know how are iptables used and how is Transmission installed on DD-WRT? (I'm using a router flashed with DD-WRT but just using the built-in settings controls.)

Landlines (including DSL connectivity) all down for practically 2 days in our area (PLDT - Sampaloc network) finally just got restored.

I notice the DSL light on the PLDT DSL modem is lighted, but there's no Internet connectivity (our landlines are all dead - no dial tone.  All banks within our vicinity have the sign "Offline" tagged on their door for the past 2 days).

I wonder what happened to the PLDT Sampaloc network? Is it damage or upgrade?

Not very sure which portions are affected. Our location is also considered Sta. Cruz North (near Tayuman) -- and thus uses PLDT-Sampaloc circuit (affects some phone line numbers that start with "711-" and nearby, when I asked my sister in Quezon City to call up PLDT to report the problem). Perhaps other Sta. Cruz areas may be using Binondo or nearby PLDT circuits?

Anyway, fortunately it's only a 2-day outage (no landlines nor Internet, weird thing was DSL light on the modem is lit up that time but phone lines were all no dial-tone that time).

i think mabilis na sila ngayon gumalaw.  pero taga manila city ako.  kaya di ko lang alam kung samin lang mabilis.  you could call 171 again and ask if you could just go to their business center and have it replaced there instead.  dati kasi parang pwede ata yun.  you could also try emailing them.  parang email ata ang ginawa ko dati tapos mas mabilis ang response at di ka na pipila sa telepono(yung naka on hold ka ng sobrang tagal). 

nung nag request ako ng extra splitter for the phone line mga 1-2days lang nadala na nila dito

My sister called up PLDT to report a telephone wire damaged during a rainstorm last May 1. Despite repeated follow-ups and promises of action with 24 hours, they came and repaired it only on the afternoon of May 6. Earlier March I also called up to have them replace a broken phone (keeps going on speaker phone). They never came.

okay nga magparebate nalang sa pldt.  nagulat nga ako nung nalaman ko na may ganito pala.  pag hindi mo alam ito may dagdag kita pa sila sayo.  ang maganda pa sa pldt ay mabilis sila mag approve ng rebate.  parang naalala ko minsan pag maswerte ka pa yung csr pa ang mag offer sayo ng rebate

di ko alam kung okay yan pero similar dyan ang gamit ko ngayon.  cnet ang brand.  about 2years++ na nga ata at wala naman major problems.  ang nangyari lang dati parang sobrang maraming ports na open ang utorrent ko kaya nag hang ang router.  pero pag reset naman okay na ulit.  di ko nga actually ginagamit yung provided modem ng pldt eh.  kasi yung walang wifi pa yung akin.  di ko lang din alam kung better ba ang mga ganito compared to pldt provided wifi router.  but if you are asking if its compatible, then i think the answer is yes.  siguro ang pinaka kailangan mo lang configure ay yung vpi at vci values which are 100 and 0.  kailangan yun ang values para umilaw ang dsl light mo.  kung aya umilaw, baliktarin mo lang yung dalawa.  0 and 100.  lol!

i also had that problem before.  i just lowered the number of connections that utorrent would make and it fixed that problem.  it seems that utorrent makes so many connections that it freezes the internet connection.  lowering number of connection doesnt seem to make my torrents run slower too.  cause it seems that utorrent just keeps making 'unnecessary' connections.  it seems that it makes connections even with download speeds of less than 1kBps per connection.  so i think it tends to stress your internet connection with no benefits.  i still download fine with lower connections on utorrent so im good with that

Try to disable some files in the torrent then download them when the other files in it are done. With my 5354U CDRK router, this works. It's been 3 yrs with me, truly bang for the buck.

^ I'd go with disabling some trackers first. There are some torrents that pile on dozens of trackers, most of them broken. You only really need one, so just pick a tracker with a good amount of seeds/peers, and remove everything else.

Next step is limiting the number of connections per torrent.

it was actually fixed already since before.  i just lowered the number of connections.  and this actually also happens more common with public trackers.  particularly with pirate bay torrents.  but everything got fixed by just lowering the number of connections and maybe also lowering number of half open ports. 

this is also the main reason why i do not try to change my settings in utorrent much anymore.  baka ma sira ulit.  medyo matagal din nagloko yung utorrent ko nun.  andami kong hinanap na settings nun.

anyway, maybe you could try not disabling trackers next time. minsan kasi pag konti ang seeders kailangan mo mag connect to different trackers to be able to get all of the pieces needed for your torrent.  thanks din for the suggestions

Post by: splerdu on May 13, 2013, 06:16:55 AM
TPB actually went trackerless a long time ago. Funny how people still blindly cut and paste their old tracker list into every torrent, when all TPB trackers have long been taken offline. This just gives us something like 10 different trackers that don't work, but are polled by the client at regular intervals.

Maybe removing every tracker is a bad idea, but if you go through your tracker list you'll probably see a LOT of broken ones, and a lot of trackers that are basically the same. (i.e. tracker.com/announce and tracker.com/announce/index.php, or http and udp versions of the same tracker). Get rid of broken and duplicate trackers and your torrent will go a lot smoother.

Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?

AFAIK the built-in client for Tomato is Transmission, via libTransmission.
You can just install Transmission-Remote-GUI on your PC and control everything from there.

Otherwise you can always telnet in and use tr_setannouncelist() to alter the tracker list

Don't use PLDT's DNS.
Go 4.2.2.1 and 8.8.8.8. They're a bit slower to respond, but a lot more reliable.
What I do is I run my own DNS server so I get fast response for known entries, and with those two as the parent for resolving new stuff.

wwhaatt!!! Hindi lang pala isolated case ang hindi pag access ng certain sites - ebay to be specific. May solution na kaya? so far, ito ang scenario ng sa akin:

Using wifi router and unable to access numerous sites that requires login - ebay included. the site itself can be accessed but when clicking to sign in, hindi na mag loload ang page  >:(

- no problems when using Globe (so hindi sites ang problem)
- no problems when connecting directly the LAN cable from the PLDT modem to the computer (so walang problem and DSL connection)
- problem only happens when accessing websites via the router since all devices (computer, laptop, android) hindi ma-access yun sites.

May ginawa kaya si PLDT sa side nila? may pinush kaya na SW update that could have caused all this? malamang natalo na ako sa bidding grrrr!!!!  >:(

somebody from PLDT's marketing gave me call, saying that my DSL is only 512 kbps (it's actually 1 mbps) and that they will upgrade to 2.5 mbps for an additional P550 pesos and that they'll throw in a Wifi modem too.

is this some sort of scam or what? lol

^ best not to tell them that your speed really is... you might wake up one day with the 512 kbps speed they told you. lol

It's not really a scam, per se, it's just that your billing profile (as against your dsl account profile) probably still reflects your previous 512 kbps dsl plan.

what i mean is, it's already suspicious enough that they do not know my current speed, and they are suggesting that i upgrade to a plan with 2.5 mbps, which as far as i know, doesn't exist.

speaking of not existing, i just checked the mydsl website and it says that plan 1299 is only 1 mbps, but i swear i saw it before that it's 2 mbps.

Actually, they submit discrepancy reports to PLDT's marketing/sales department - which in turn forward the discrepancies to PLDT''s datanet for profile reconciliation. And sometimes, datanet does find a discrepancy and restores the reported account profile to the proper/correct configuration.

okay so today i gave PLDT a call today to know why my plan 1299 wasn't still upgraded to 2 mbps. i was quite worried because in the pldt website 1299 is 1 mbps, when it was clearly stated before that it's 2 mbps. also the technician who went to my house to see the ping problem told me that 2 mbps will apply only to new subscribers.

the pldt rep assured me that my line will eventually be upgraded to 2 mbps, and like when i called a month ago she said that it should be done by the end of october.

i guess i will have to be patient.

i remembered before when i called 172, the tech said that he would be "resetting" the "datanet" and after a minute he has fixed my internet speed.  i do not get why they couldnt do it now.  it was actually after a few times that i got hold of the guy and got it fixed.  it was i think the 3rd call when i got hold of him.  i even asked him what his course was and told him that all the other csrs sucked.  i think he mentioned that he was an engineering graduate.  i got tired of following up now cause they keep wanting to come to my house and i keep telling them that its not a problem on my end but theirs.

BOTH OF US STILL HAVENT BEEN UPGRADED!  and this is why i do not want the pldt tech to come to my place.  its just useless!  i think he was also expecting you to offer him a bribe to get it upgraded faster...  hopefully end of october is really the final deadline where all of us get our speed boost

im now getting 1.6mbps and the pldt tech told me that its the maximum i could get with my legacy line.  i got tired of arguing with him already.  at least this connection now is very stable.  when i check on speedtest.net i get a constant flow of at least 1.6mbps.  wherein before i get a fluctuating speed of 900kbps to 1.4mbps which averages at about 1mbps.

he told me that there are no new available lines in my area where he could transfer my connection.  so i guess im stuck with this for a while.  its extremely frustrating how the marketing and operations department arent communicating properly regarding these things. 

he also explained to me that my current legacy line is better than those ngn lines cause its more stable.  well, i could actually attest to that too since my dsl has never been down without good reason(taiwan earthquake...).  if ever it does go down, it only takes a few hours to be fixed.

it took me a week just to get this constant 1.6mbps!  and during that week, my username and password got disabled somehow.  its really tiring having to argue with them.  i think i actually called everyday for a week just to get to this point.  so sad.... :(

im really supposed to get 3mbps.  the pldt guy told me that if i really want the 3mbps he would need to change my phone number since there are no available lines already here in my area.  he said that the new phone number is needed to change the speed of my line.  im not sure if he is just messing with me or what since i have been communicating with him for some time already and it is just now that he really fixed my internet to a stable 1.6mbps.  it took me a week of following up with him before he did this.  and he kept giving different reasons as to why i am not getting the speed advertised.

oh.  i read wrong.  i didnt notice that you only quoted calvin's post.  lucky you.  im now at 1.7mbps on plan 999 and the fucker of a pldt tech said that there are no lines available and that is the maximum capability of my "legacy" connection.

if you still have a username password to log in, then you are using legacy.

*grumbles about phone service still not being restored after 3 weeks, still no DSL speed boost and annoying high ping*

then i should be considered lucky.  since i only got 1 week of no dsl and that is because the fucking pldt guy removed my username from their system. 

the one that got my dsl fixed fastest was when i called before noon.  by afternoon, my username was already working.

i do not recommend calling late at night or at dawn. 

before, my dsl gets fixed quickly when i call at dawn.  it seems that its better to call during office hours now.

and also, try to call every day and keep following up.  thats what i did also with that whole week of invalid username error.

its the same as my speed.  and im on plan 999.  my ping is also 0 now.  one of the things i read regarding this is to not turn off the modem for a long time so that the connection gets "memorized" somehow.  so the next time you connect you would still get the same speed. 

i got that 1.7mbps when i kept bugging pldt tech support for a WEEK!  the pldt tech said that its the maximum he could give me.  unless im okay with changing phone numbers there is nothing he could do to increase my speed cause there are no lines available anymore for ngn connections.  im still on legacy line btw

Thinking of switching to pldt.... Bayantel's been jittery (thanks splerdu for the correct term) the entire year. Considering i have subscribed for a business line hoping to have a different result but i guess the line is just crap.

Does pldt provide a public ip to subscribers or has it also converted to private?

Check the seeds... also check if you still have disk space (I was wondering a few weeks ago why I was having "no connection" issues, tried port forwarding, even waited for the demand letter from my provider for illegal downloads and going over the bandwidth cap, yun pala punong-puno na HDD ko).

@lahar

Transmission (from my Tomato-flashed router) usually reports when there is no more disk space.  To be sure, I also checked for any leftover files in the ".incomplete" folder.  As for seeds, I limit UL speeds to 10KiB/s.

Now that you mentioned storage, I'm thinking that since I've been using the same 8GB flash disk for almost a year now, perhaps it's already having write issues?

@ris

My current setup is a 2 month-old PLDT wifi modem (with wireless turned off) -> CDRKing router -> PC/smartphone/etc and I never had these problems before.  I also suspected port forwarding problems so I put my CDRKing router's IP in the PLDT wifi modem's DMZ.  Do you think that'll fix any port forwarding issues?  I don't want to set my PLDT modem to bridge mode since I would like it to be as easy as possible to switch to it as backup wifi in case the CDRKing router conks out.

May fair use policy na ba ang PLDT?

sorry for the weird suggestion but have you tried downloading something else?  from another website?  a different torrent perhaps?  maybe that certain torrent site is the one giving you download issues?  i also read from tpc that they are having torrent issues too.  maybe you are also affected by this.  i currently can download torrents at full speed btw.  but still stuck at NOT 3MBPS....  im at 1.6mbps now...

Actually, I've already downloaded a couple of other files within this week leaving the router on for most of the day and sometimes overnight.  Whenever I view the torrent queue, I always see that it's at 1.0KiB/s (UL seems to be normal) then just when I least expect it, tapos na pala ang download.  So I guess, the speed somehow goes up to respectable speeds when I'm not watching.

BTW, all other browsing activities (HTTP, YouTube) are unaffected by whatever is going on with my connection.

I'll try replacing the flash disk tomorrow with a microSD card reader and a 16GB Class 4 microSD.

^ Using flash is more expensive in the long run. If you use it as a scratch drive the number of writes will kill the NAND pretty quickly, and for bulk storage HDDs are cheaper per GB. I have a bunch of dead flash sticks and SD cards just from shuttling backups back and forth between systems.

Remember that NAND is addressed in blocks, so your flash drives/SD cards have a minimum block size. Whenever you write to the drive, the minimum write size is actually in multiples of the block size, rounded up. A torrent client writing a newly downloaded chunk of 256kB will actually be writing something like 4MB (typical block size of SD cards 8GB and up) each time.

As for download speed, I'm currently downloading an old torrent with two seeds and one other leecher:

My consideration is more of "I have this spare flash disk laying around so why not use it for torrent downloading".

I actually got this 8GB (SanDisk Cruzer) flash disk free when I purchased a netbook last year.  Still hasn't failed even though I've been using it almost daily for torrents.  One advantage I think with a flash drive is that it doesn't draw as much power nor does it generate as much heat as a portable HDD so I am not that worried about leaving my cheapo Tomato-flashed router running 24/7.  My DSL is only 1Mbps so I always have time to check my torrents and transfer completed downloads to my PC before the flash disk runs out of space (which also kinda makes me a dick for not seeding).

Now I have a spare 16GB microSD that I am pairing with a 30-peso microSD card reader from CDRKing.  I'll use this to replace the 8GB Cruzer when it dies.

torrent downloading seems to be slow lately. even some websites fail to load from time to time. i even tried using different bittorent software. nothing changed. i still get quite slow speed usually below 10kb/s even with a few hundred seeders outnumbering the leechers. i still got a lot of space on my hard drive though.

this issue seems to have started around december. i was thinking that maybe it was just a holiday season thing. hopefully they fix it soon.

anyway its already 2.45 am and my torrent d/l speed is still less than 5kb/s ... this sucks. i tried bittorent and utorrent still the same. later i'll try vuze and tixati maybe got difference.

^ I think it depends on the area where you are. Here in Marikina it's basically full speed all the time, most likely because very few people are using LTE. From what I understand, when you reach the "cap" it puts you on low priority, but low priority means exactly the same speed when you're the only LTE user in your cell site.
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: calvin on January 04, 2014, 12:14:19 PM
I have two friends using LTE, one is based in QC but practically uses his LTE phone all over Metro Manila... the other is based in Pasig and uses an LTE router(mostly in an around Eastwood and his place in Pasig). And both experience the same  "bandwidth cap" wherever they are... and both tell me that their speed get limited to ≤ 1.5 mbps as soon as they get capped off for the day - the speed is restored every midnight.

And the "low priority"  policy is probably true too since there are times when response time is so long that the browser times out.
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: splerdu on January 04, 2014, 12:21:00 PM
I'm confused now as to how they implement it. According to the FAQ page you're supposed to get a text message when you hit the cap, and then you get downgraded to 2G speeds (which would be very slow). But I've never gotten the message once since getting my phone, and if they do throttle downloads, it certainly never went as low as 40-150kbps (GPRS/EDGE speeds).
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: calvin on January 04, 2014, 12:57:39 PM
they never get a warning too... but they sometimes get disconnected. and when it connects, it starts off with either E or H.
then after a few minutes, they get connected with an H+ symbol again but the speed never reaches more than 1.5mbps.

I don't think uTorrent was RC4.  I have it on my NAS and just installed it on this iMac, with several videos in queue, the total download seems to hover near the total upload from both clients.  In my case 40+ kb/s across two clients, up and down.

I noticed over time, the rate does go down... even on Vuze.  Simple solution i have is to release the IP and get a new/different one... and it's back to full speed.

I don't need to reset my modem to get a new IP, I just renew the leased DHCP IP addresss.  (using a Tenda W300D ADSL modem/wifi AP now, since my old DLink DSL-520T popped a cap and doesn't work anymore).

Just turn it off and on. "Reset" may have a different meaning, as modems and routers have a "reset" button that brings it back to factory specs.

Post by: bravoexo on January 06, 2014, 09:29:14 AM
Also, you'd have to wait a few minutes before turning it on.  PLDT's DHCP seems to last 30mins and release automatically if they don't receive a renew command from the modem in the timeframe.  (Doesn't mean you have to wait 30mins... btw  But I've done the modem reset back when the P660R was still the one I used and it wouldn't give a different IP if I just turn it off and on)

Post by: motion55 on January 06, 2014, 11:11:09 AM
You can change the MAC address of the WAN port of the router and renew. However, PLDT does not like to issue an new IP address while there is an outstanding lease on the old IP address. You might lose internet connectivity with the new IP address. This is why IP leases are a short 2hours. To immediately reset the lease, you have to reboot or resync the DSL modem.

same is true when i tried DLing ISO of Ubuntu.

however i tried a movie from KAT and DL speed is only around 50Kbps, but the number of seeders is triple that of leechers.

very strange and frustrating.

i recently went to the nearby pldt customer service center and replaced my old but still working dsl modem with a new pldt wifi modem.  apparently its a prolink h5004n customized by pldt.  any suggestions on how i can fully utilize this modem?  im still on legacy line with 1.5mbps btw.  and on plan 999.  i needed to access the adminpldt menu instead of the provided admin menu written in the manual so that i can set up a dialer with username and password.  it seems to be better than the cnet wifi modem that i had before.  im planning on using this now and retiring the cnet modem.  hehehe

edit:  apparently this modem seems to be a lot better than my cnet one.  okay na ang upload test ko sa speedof.me.  dati tumitigil sa 22% pag upload test na ako.  ngayon natatapos sa prolink modem.  hahaha!  well, i got the cnet modem cheap so i guess it should be expected :lol:

Lag sobra ingame kapag naglalaro ako ng online games. Nakakaranas din ba kayo ng matinding lag lately, mas malala kung ikukumpara sa dati? Mamayang madaling araw titignan ko kung may lag pa rin. Kung wala na, ibig sabihin may ginagawa ang PLDT para ma-degrade yung connection, kumbaga parang throttling tuwing daylight hours.

Nararanasan ko rin pala sa ngayon yung biglang humihinto yung internet connection kaya ang tagal bago mag-load ng mga websites. Last week hindi naman ganito.

@Gelo, dati naman napuputol parati yung connection ko every 30 minutes, pero ngayon naayos na.

i found the solution.  and its not the simple change password that we are used to.  i googled it and tried one "risky" solution. 

my prolink is h5004n provided by pldt.  its the one where pldtmydsl would always be a prefix in the wifi ssid.  found the fix for that too. 

i do not get why the error is "new password and confirmed password is not the same".  maybe pldt deliberately disabled this feature

try mo sa 171 mag apply.  pero based sa experience ko ang pinaka mabilis talaga para maka connect ng dsl ay pag ahente.  siguro pwede mo din subukan yung sa mall na nagoffer ng ganun.  di ko lang alam kung safe dun sa mga ahente.  pero tinignan ko naman yung iba at may feedbacks naman sila na okay daw ang application nila

I just received a letter from PLDT that my line is being migrated to NGN and will be finished by early next month.  The repair guy that I talked to last weekend said the migration is probably the reason why my line (and 3Mbps connection) somehow "got lost".  Still on 1.03Mbps until now.

OT: 
Perhaps the advantage of going through agents is they know someone on the inside who can expedite things for them.

regarding application ba na agents?  from what i think, its because they earn their commission once you already have dsl.  so i think they follow up and do other things to speed up the process for you.  wherein if you do not have an agent, no one would follow up for you since the people you apply to do not get anything even if they follow up for you.

lucky yoiu, you were already on 3mbps on LEGACY line.  where i am still at 1.5mbps and i even received an email informing me that my connection is at 3mbps already.  and when i asked at the pldt service center they told me that there could even be a possibility that my phone number is going to change when i get migrated to ngn.  and i just have to wait for that and be patient with my 1.5mbps connection for now

walang problem sakin.  in terms of disconnection.  di ko alam kung matutuwa ako o hindi eh.  kasi yung 3mbps plan ko kalahati lang ang speed ko kasi nasa legacy line ako.  ito na nga ata ang pinaka example na mas stable talaga ang legacy.  ive had no problems with torrents also.  nagkaproblema lang ako nung naputol yung underground cables recently.  frequent disconnection.  pero lahat tayo nun.  ngayon naayos na sobrang stable.  mga naka ngn ata lahat ng naapektuhan nito.

naka legacy ka din from what i remember.  wala din siguro disconnections sayo tama ba?

Basically someone was digging @Visayas Ave, and had cut a phone line...  saw four PLDT vans over there one morning this week , and 1 odd Maynilad van too. (I guess we know who to blame)

DSL is back though, still no dialtone. but we didn't loose Net since we're using Smart LTE as a second WAN.

i already went to the pldt office.  and the explanation of the customer service rep was the same as the tech.  she even told me that there is a possibility that in the future the first three numbers on my current phone number might change.  this was the time i replaced my old modem into the new wifi modem.  she told me that i needed to wait cause upgrades are currently ongoing.  i think its already 6 months since pldt announced the 3mbps upgrade.  maybe its time to call 172 again...  lagi nalang walang available lines dito samin... ewan ko nga kung niloloko ako o ano eh...  tapos pag meron naman lines papalitan daw first 3 digits ng phone number ko...  parang culture na din siguro ng pldt yung madaming magulong kausap na technician

Well, we kinda stared a few minutes when he replaced the old modem with a new prolink one, and waited and waited to see if thr dsl light will stick.. changed filter, same.. checked with their makati ops, sure enough someone again changed our profile. (Insisted last time that they note not to change the down speed to 8mbps, coz their utag tech and cabinet 12 we were on only reaches 3mbps. So they fixed that, still the same problem. Technician this time called balara, which is the node we were on and he asked an ojt engineer to swap out the black fuse(?)... as soon as that was touched, dsl light went steady. Arrggh what a mess.

kaso had to pester globe CS to get them to give us our full 5mbps, kasi 3mbps lang siya nung ikabit. Pero at least meron sumasagot sa CS ng globe, sa PLDT maputi na buhok mo naghihintay ka pa din.

10gb seems to be a good cap especially since they slow you down to 1.5mbps which is still a good speed.

sa pldt 2k yan speed na nakukuha mo pero walang cap.

my mydsl line at my old house (connected since 2002) was only giving me 500kbps on a supposed 1.5mbps plan999.

kahit anong complain di nila inaayos. Then they told me I need to pay for transfer to our new address. so I just applied for a new line but then there were no more lines available. Sa pikon ko pinaputol ko na lang yun existing namin sa old house namin (nandun pa parents ko kaya sila gagamit dapat). We just had their existing pldt line upgraded to plan 1299 combo pare meron sila internet pang facebook. nakatipid pa ako

With harddrive and electricity rates steadily going up, I only download 1-2 tv shows and/or movies a day. kasya na kami sa 10GB. then kung mag FUP man, kaya pa naman mag youtube ng 1.5mbps. di puwede mawala youtube ni yaya, baka lumayas. hehehe

Sa PLDT kasi yung 2k wala pang kasama na landline, sa globe meron na mas mura pa. Pero yung 1 year lock-in lang kinuha ko para pag nagloko globe dito sandali lang hihintayin ko pwede na paputol. By that time baka meron na available PLDT line.

mas mura nga ata sa globe kung 1599 tapos phone and dsl na sya.  sa pldt kasi 3mbps ang plan 999 pero additional ka pa ng mga 650 ata for the landline.  ang okay lang talaga para sakin sa pldt ay yung walang cap.  pero pag nag compute ka naman ng 10gb per day na fup nila para worth it kasi more than 12 hours of downloading din yun pag 1.5mbps ka.  naka 1.5mbps kasi ako na ngayon kaya nararamdaman ko yung tagal ng download.  since double ng 1.5mbps ang 3mbps i assume na mga over 6 hours nalang na download yung mangyayari pag naka 3mbps ako.

Wala pa bang Fibr sa inyo? Yun lang ang nakapagpaayos ng problema ko sa myDSL.

ibang rates po ba ang fibr?  baka yun nalang request ko kung pwede sa plan 999.  parang may nabasa kasi ako na pag fibr dapat plan 3500 ang kunin.  kakaasar din kasi na 1.5mbps ako hanggang ngayon eh 6 months na din since nag announce ang pldt ng speed upgrade.  at nung tinanong ko yung speed profile ko sa 172 ang sabi nila naka 3mbps daw ako dahil yun nakasulat sa speed profile ko sa kanila

At 200 per TV that's ok already. I'd switch over as soon as it's available here, although the main benefit for us will be finally getting away from medieval-era SkyCable. How are the pings, btw? Can you do a pingtest to US west coast?

On a side note, it's pretty awesome that our registered MAC address is DE:AD:BE:EF:xx. I've left it on since the PPPoE days and it seems they took it as our "official" MAC when they transitioned the area to NGN. Tried removing the spoofed MAC from the router once and DSL immediately dropped. Put it back on and service came back.

I use Smart Bro LTE as backup to my Globe DSL connection. Smart Bro LTE in my area (Cainta) can beat Globe DSL in speed and latency tests. I get 15ms latency almost as good as PLDT MyDSL. Speedtest is 40+mbps download and 9-12mbps upload. Torrents can reach 1.5MB/s to 2.5MB/s aggregate speed. However, I am still not giving up my Globe subscription because it has no cap.

I bought a LTE dongle and use prepaid so there is no lock-in. Check mo na lang if LTE is available in your area using an LTE enabled phone. Your results will vary.

Hindi aabot talaga since theoretically...

GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) 2G -- 9.6Kbps
GPRS (General packet radio services) 2.5G -- 35Kbps to 171kbps
EDGE (Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution) 2.75G -- 120Kbps to 384Kbps
UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) 3G -- 384Kbps to 2Mbps
HSPA (software upgrade to UMTS, theoretical 42Mbps) 3.5G -- 600Kbps to 10Mbps, averages 1-3Mbps
WiMAX/LTE "4G" (theoretical 100Mbps) -- 3Mbps to 10Mbps average, 20Mbps+ peak download speeds.

Without the cap, you'd have a 3G signal (so depending on your location you'd either be connected to UMTS or HSPA... or LTE if you're subscribed to it)... but if you get capped, your connection would be bumped down to EDGE/2G.

I am subscribed to Smart Bro LTE 50 prepaid data bucket for the past 1hr 45mins. I have completed downloading several files. Two linux mint 17 ISO images (1.2GB each) and several movies through torrent. They all total at least 10GB.

Here is my current speedtest result after downloading all that.

For me, the cap sa Smart Bro prepaid is "mythical". It does not exist in my area. I doubt if it really exists at all. Smart recently did fix the bug where I can go beyond 24 hrs connected to my LTE 50 subscription.

^ AFAIK, prepaid DATA subscriptions do not have bandwidth caps.

Now you are confusing. You said:

All wireless internet connections have bandwidth caps... so when you do reach the daily limit, your speed would be bumped down to the lowest speed (~256kbps)

my mistake.... when I made the previous post, I was thinking of postpaid data plans only....

As for Smart prepaid Internet promos, I've heard that they're currently not covered by the bandwidth cap (but they'll soon be covered, as well.)

Either way MyDSL here gets ~10Mbps even going direct to US servers, so streaming wasn't really any hardship even before they implemented the local CDN.

^ walang bayad ang migration... and afaik, you don't need to make a request letter for it either.

ang may bayad lang is downgrading to a lower plan, if you're requesting it before the end of the "lock-in period".

in all my transactions with PLDT, the only formal letter of request that ever made was for the transfer of my phone number from our old address to the new one... since then, I've never set foot inside their business center.

maybe its a new policy?  when i called 171 i was informed i needed to bring a formal letter to the business office so that i can migrate my account.  i was not planning on doing it so i tried to call 172 and when a technician called i told him to migrate my line.  he was already going to migrate the line when he called me back afterwards.  but he called back the next day and told me that i needed a written letter and i should bring it to the local business center in order for my line to be migrated.

Our warehouse DSL was just migrated last week... we never made any formal request for it.
We just told them that we need our connection to be as stable as it used to be...
they're also the ones who suggested to migrate it because they can't find a "good" port anymore.

after 6 months!  finally!  my line has been migrated!  ang ganda pa nga ng connection ko ngayon.  hehehe!  the ping is actually high now compared to my legacy line which is 1ms.  pero mukhang joke time naman din yun dati eh. 

oddly, migration of my line only took about an hour or so.  1 hour after the pldt tech guy said he will find available ports for me my dsl light for legacy went off and i changed the settings to dhcp.  meron pa nga akong fail na nagawa.  i tweaked the settings of my pldt router so that im "protected" from DoS attacks(naka on lang sya kasi wala naman problema sa internet nung naka legacy line pa).  apparently with the current speed it seems the modem registers all the traffic as DoS attacks.  so my internet connection dies after a few seconds of loading any webpage.  i currently turned off the DoS protection and it seems okay na ang internet ko.  extremely high ang speed na nakukuha ko.  over 3mbps++.  yan nga ang iniisip ko na tatanga tanga lang o tamad yung pldt tech guys kaya di maayos connection ko eh.  this was a different guy and he just told me he will migrate my line and told me to wait that day or the next day for the migration to finish. 

family ko manila area (paco), 2 weeks na walang landline and DSL. sabi minimigrate daw ang lines nila. ganun ba talaga o ninakaw nga ang linya?

sa amin din ninakaw ang kable.  pero after 3-5 days na restore na ulit ang landline.  nag file din kami actually ng report sa 172.  at nung pag balik nga ng landline namin naging 1mbps yung dsl ko compared to 1.5mbps dati.  akala ko nga isang taon pa ako dito sa 1mbps ko eh.  luckily, iba ang tech na nag asikaso sa latest na report ko.  di ko nga lang sure kung naka chamba ako na may available na port ngayon kaya nalipat nya ako kaagad.  kasi yun ang reason ng dating pldt tech sakin na wala daw available na port kaya di ako ma migrate

DSL/dialtone went down again for 2 days last week. After coming back up bandwidth is slightly improved, I'm now getting 12-15Mbps, up from 8-10Mbps previously.

Guess they were replacing felled lines from the storm and something got fixed/improved along the way.

Bittorrent at home (yes, I am total leecher status):

On a side note, the home router really needs upgrading now. My PC, being the only wired client is pretty much the only device that gets full speed out of the DSL. Wireless clients top out at around 2.5Mbps. This shouldn't be an issue because the phones get LTE anyways, but there are also those pesky new daily data caps.

hopefully this is temporary.  ive only been on 3mbps for a while.  it would really suck if the speeds get throttled just a few months after my speed got fixed.

Just switch on protocol encryption. They're probaby doing some sort of packet inspection to throttle bittorrent.

My downloads have been chugging along at 300kbps each all day. Also, if anyone is still using 6881-6889 then definitely change the bittorrent port.

Guess the encryption level isn't enough to get through packet inspection.

Maybe try Calvin's ipv6 tunnel method? It's basically about setting your torrent client to use ipv6, then routing traffic through a 6to4 gateway. Apparently the encapsulation is enough to break packet inspection.

Your PC has to be connected direct to internet (because IPv6 doesn't like being behind NAT).

If you're on a router, this means putting your PC in the DMZ, or setting the router to not connect, and instead do that via your PC.

Set the router address to be 192.168.x.2, then your PC as 192.168.x.1. Router can still act as an AP and switch, but have your PC take care of connecting to and sharing the internet connection. Set router's DHCP server to still give out addresses, but use your PC as the default gateway and internet should still be transparent to other clients.

Tapos na mag download yung unang dalawang torrent and I am downloading 4 more torrents. Two torrents are hogging most of the 3mbps bandwidth. I am hitting 300KB/s. Again I can download from only a few fast peers. One common denominator is all the fast peers are libTorrent (Rakshasa) clients. I think those are RTorrent clients. Maybe this client is "immune" to PLDT's traffic shaping.

Guys, ano po ginagawa niyo sa modem niyo or sa settings po pag hindi nakaka connect mga devices thru wifi ng PLDT Home DSL Kasada model: KW58293? Ok naman then this morning ayaw na.

Mag iOS device or android parehas lang. Nag turn off/on na po ko ng modem, ganun din. Salamat po.

Got it.

Sinubukan ko yung default password yung nakalagay mismo sa modem then gumana. Why this things hapen? Nag rereset ba sila ng settings nila or something?

wow!  3 hours only?  last month i usually get throttled in the morning about 8am i think and then by 8pm i think the speed maxes out.  but currently i do not think im throttled.  sayang lang at wala na din ako torrent na gusto idownload...  usually mga below 1gb nalang download ko kaya within one hour tapos na sya.  pero based sa observation ko wala na akong throttling ngayon

kung last month yun malamang may kinalaman sa nasirang cable.  pero diba sabi nila by this month ayos na daw yun?  yung speed ko nga ngayon back to normal na.  akala ko nga dahil dun sa nasirang cable pero weird na di parin ayos yung sa inyo

Post by: motion55 on October 19, 2014, 03:35:23 PM
I think throttling happens when there is congestion in your area. When the total bandwidth usage in your area reaches a limit then PLDT starts shaping traffic. There is really no precise time except that traffic tends to drop at night so there is less chance of traffic shaping. During weekends and holidays, throttling occurs earlier and longer. Observe ninyo this coming Undas.

When I heard reports from others that their myDSL was being throttled, I double checked to see if my download speeds were affected, torrents and http downloads. I didn't see any difference or degradation of quality on my part. *ahem* So is throttling legal here in the Philippines?

mahirap magreklamo kasi torrent ang mabagal hindi yung web browsing or downloading sa websites.  pano mo sasabihin sa kanila na mabagal torrent mo diba?  eh di tatanungin ka nya kung ano ba ang dinadownload mo para ma check nya

i do not even use torrent more than 3 hours a day. and i certainly don't leave my PC open to DL overnight.

if by the end of october my torrent is still throttled i'll give PLDT a call and tell them i need torrent for Linux distro downloads, which i really do.

does anyone here get upload speeds above 1mbps?  im wondering if pldt would give anyone half of the download speed as upload speed.  isnt that the standard for adsl?  if you have 10mbps, then you should actually have 5mbps upload right?  it seems everyone gets less than 1mbps and usually about 512kbps for uploads

It's a hardware limitation... the modems they issue can only provide 1 mbps upstream.
ADSL2+  modems have an upstream speed of 2 mbps.

Those torrents were very well seeded so not much chance to upload. I'd usually get around 512kbps upstream.
Yes, it's total leecher status compared to my downstream.

Style nila yan to extend your contract. Sa amin panay ang tawag, kesyo loyal customer daw ako, bigyan daw ako ng tablet at TVolution (sp?) at gagawin daw 5Mbps (from 3Mbps) ang bandwidth ko. Pero of course tataas din ang bayad. Lagi ko sinasagot, tawag ulit sila kapag napantayan nila bandwidth ko sa Japan sa current subscription price ko.

i just had my splitter changed.  it was literally a minute or two only.  no questions asked.  what i did was i told the guard outside that i wanted to replace my splitter.  parang naka express lane lang ako.  kinuha lang nila yung old at binigyan ako ng bago.  walang piirma or anything.  kaliwaan lang talaga. 

nung sinabi ko na papalit ako ng splitter di na ako binigyan ng number.  derecho na ako dun sa counter at mabilisan lang talaga.  10seconds lang ata yun.  i think its even under a minute yung pag pasok at labas ko sa pldt service center

If you don't hear your DSL model negotiating a link over the phone handset then it's still good.

im the one who decided how the cabling should work.  its because our pldtdsl was connected at the time where pldt didnt provide any micro filter to their customers.  i think i remember we werent issued one.  so i made all our extension phones connect through the main line. would this actually make the dsl splitter prone to breaking?

That, I don't know. But from your setup a single filter should work. But as long as your DSL doesn't disconnect you should be fine.

yup.  it doesnt disconnect.  maybe the filter is for the dsl and not the phone.  so hearing a little dsl noise should be tolerable compared to the other way where the dsl catches the people talking on the phone,hence it disconnects.

it seems im being throttled now.  and the weird part is i think its 12 to 12 throttling...

you can buy dsl filters sa suking cdrking. 40 pesoses each. pero check carefully kasi kamukhang kamukha niya yun ordinary splitter, 40 pesos each din hehehe. tawagan ninyo yun customer support nila para malaman kung saan branch meron stock. bought 2 at the alphaland branch last july

I don't run torrents at home anymore, I just have a cheap @ Php150++ us-based VPS (Left over from my defunct VPN business, 512MB ram, 30GB disk space, 1TB bandwidth) and installed transmission.  After the torrent completes I just direct download it. Kainis lang sa Globe DSL mabilis nga pero pag lampas na 7GB nadownload mo throttled ka na. asar hehe.

Was watching twitch.tv all day using mobile, can confirm that Globe's FUP isn't really implemented here. I got the FUP notification, but connection kept chugging along at 3G/LTE speeds. Didn't even notice the FUP message until much later, because video streams were never interrupted.

maybe youre the only one who uses their data connection in that area.  no point for them to decrease your speed since no one else is using it.  are you on 999 unli surf?

try to go to megamall building D.  lte speed there is at a crazy 25++mbps.  even the upload speed is fast.  im using the time based browsing so i guess FUP doesnt apply for me

So I'm thinking it's either PLDT's blocking it or the host has blocked my IP... Now since you can all access the page, then it must be the latter.

Unlike Globe which has become an internet cafe, MyDSL ports are still open for most access. I can still access my home router and the NAS within the home network remotely.
Title: Re: May nabago ba sa myDSL ninyo?
Post by: bravoexo on April 22, 2015, 09:21:49 PM
Well, it's probably something I'm doing wrong... I didn't have a need to open ports before till now, but when our line was still on NGN, and on the local box nearby that's capped at 3Mbps, I used to get a public IP.  Now, when I got transfered to the farther away box, but getting 8Mbps, I'm only getting 192.168.x.x IPs  (Double NAT? or transparent proxy?)....  I've tried uPnP, tried manual port forwarding... olats for some reason.  Looking at canyouseeme comes up nothing...   and I've tried it on Globe, Smartbro, and myDSL.

Oh well.

yeah, that's my problem... internally, it's a 192.168.x.x IP from the bridged DSL modem...  externally, it's that a similar 49.x.x.x IP. 

Its the same problem with either the Peplink or the Asus as a router...

hello first time poster

using mydsl with 5mb plan (5 years)

as of late my connection has been unstable...modem wise...it kept disconnecting/reconnecting for some reason whereas I could surf 24/7 back then without any problem (zyxel p600hn modem)

speed wise, still the same

some say it's the modem dying...but i don't know...since there are times the connection will be consistent...sometimes it won't....:(

If it blinks the problem isn't on your end, this means your DSL modem is syncing with the DSLAM (most likely due to a problem on PLDTs side)... but if the light simply goes out, then it could be a sign of a failing modem.

Unfortunately, yan din experience ko. Keep mo yung issue ticket number. Yan ang gagamitin mo everytime tatawag ka. Diyan sila nag-rerely instead of your name and account number. It took me a week before they actually sent a technician. Hindi ka rin bibigyan ng PLDT office ng modem (even if you offer to pay for it), because get this: You are a high-speed account holder! Free lifetime modem replacement, and you have to wait for a technician to actually certify your modem is kaput, even if its already obvious.

You've been duped... modem replacement is free if you're on MyDSL's High Speed Plans. (mainly because you don't own the modem, PLDT still does... so it's their responsibility to replace it every time it conks out without any additional charges to the subscriber).

Lock-ins are only required if you're applying for an upgrade/downgrade while your existing plan is still active.

We called up PLDT this morning because of disconnects. Technician called back shortly after, and came by the house before I finished listening to the latest TechReport podcast. This is probably not their usual level but I'm a happy camper with the service speed we got.

what exactly happens when they say your line is included in a "migration activity" and why does it take 2-4 weeks?

they're basically replacing all equipment on-site... and instead of doing it in batches they're going to disconnect everyone, replace all equipment and reconfigure everything from scratch.

it's almost 3 weeks and still no sign of our connection going back soon. all calls to support just say there is migration activity and our line is being transferred to a different cabinet, no timetable when this will be done.

in fairness to them, it's not easy migrating from an ATM/DSLAM to an IP/MPLS system.

May improvement usually sa latency but the main advantage here is on their side...
accounts are easier to manage (meaning they can easily cut your service if you missed the due date)

But it could also be the modem/router login screen.  I noticed in the new N routers when there is no internet they show the router login screen rather than a blank "not connected to the internet" screen.

May biglang nagpa-pop-up na frame ng PLDT sa random websites na tinitignan ko. Parang alert na hindi pa ako nagbabayad. Bawal ba ito? Hindi ko alam kung ano yung exact term, html injection ba o javascript injection. Kahit papaano nabla-block o nabibigyan ako ng warning ng NoScript na parang phishing yung ginagawang javasript injection ng PLDT. Dapat may batas na bawal i-modify yung data na nise-send o nare-receive mo.

apparently, the frequency band for ultera was supposed to be for PLDT devices only, but some were  able to hack them and make a smart sim work with them, congesting the network further. i think PLDT has fixed this already?

and yes when no more dsl slots you can get ultera, or as a backup connection if a second DSL line is too expensive. i have a smart LTE prepaid for backup.

Youtube is usually fast and mostly unaffected if the video you're watching is viral enough. They have CDNs in place so (popular) content is never far away from anyone.

Try it! Open a YT video, bring up the media info and ping the googlevideo server that's feeding the content. Ping will usually be very low.

Twitch, on the other hand, doesn't have a nearby CDN and during the day streams are near unwatchable. =(

so yesterday evening i called 171. i was answered by an automated voice telling me to answer some details, like what the problem was. i hung up and called 172. i got to talk to a live tech support, who told me 171 is live only from 10 am to 4 pm, so i had to call again the next day. but today this early morning around 9 am i noticed DSL was restored as well as the dial tone, and some time later some Pro Tek guys arrived at my gates to check if the line was fixed. they asked me to sign a paper stating it was repaired.

that was probably the fastest response time from PLDT i received. good job.

PLDT now works fast. Reported the problem via 171 before 7:30am today. Its good they now use an automated reporting system, just choose the problem via voice prompt. No more waiting for a human to talk to. My wife says the technician came around 2PM and checked the lines. Restored the service after 30min due to a loose connection at their junction box a block away.

Just got Skybroadband 50Mbps Bundle installed in the house. using the Wifi as WAN mode of our Peplink MAX OTG router to add it into the pool of bandwidth available (PLDT DSL 8/1, Smartbro 20/7, and sometimes Globe LTE in 3G mode 3/0.2)  Good thing this load balancer is good for up to 100Mbit.


I heard PLDT was getting an upgrade again starting next month, for the 3k plan to 10down from the current 8. though, I really needed the upload to go up.

Nice video sir bravoexo, but could you make a second video connecting to a server in the opposite part of the world (eg. a server in Dallas, Texas), instead of using the recommended one. Two reasons for doing this is because I'm highly suspicious about test results using local servers, and also I'd like to know the latency to the server (since a lot of MMORPGs have their game servers based on Texas, maybe it's because it's in the center of NA, or maybe it's cheaper to operate there, I dunno). :)

As it turns out there are two DSLAMs servicing our area. One is 1400M away, the other 1850M (distances according to the modem's built-in info tool).
Most often the modem will go to the 1850M DSLAM, and typical speeds are 9-10.5Mbps down, .09-1.0Mbps up
The 1400M one is very hard to get, but when we do get it speeds are 12-13Mbps down, 1.1-1.2Mbps up

I'm 2450 meters away from my DSLAM so techs put a 5 mbps cap on my account... if they removed the speed cap, my modem frequently loses sync... this was after some "know-it-all" engineer migrated my legacy account to the "better, more improved and stable" New Generation Network. Before the migration, my speed was stable at 10mbps / 3mbps  24/7.

wala naman sila actually pangako.  that document was actually released by someone else and not pldt.  medyo sarap lang sana kung totoo yun.  the 8mbps and 15mbps for the plans were actually true. some people already had their plans upgraded to 5mbps.  so maybe hintay hintay nalang dun sa mga di na upgrade

hopefully taking their time.  kasi kung bibilangin mo 5mbps ang plan 999 tapos ung plan 1995 up to 8mbps lang.  so parang mas sulit ka pag nag dalawang plan 999 ka kasi 10 mbps total yun.  thats considering you have 2 phone lines available.  3 pesos lang ang difference.  but its actually the same situation before where we get 3mbps when plan 1995 was getting 5mbps.  sana naman kung may upgrade talaga mabigay na sa atin as soon as possible

Speed upgrades are currently on hold, according to my mole... apparently, the current network configuration is incapable of supporting the upgrade without adversely affecting their enterprise customers. She says upgrades will resume as soon as network engineers solve the issue.

medyo nagloloko parin nga internet ko.  minsan nag service unavailable sya.  pero mas rare ngayon compared a few months ago where i get the service unavailable error every 20 or so pages.

walang pinagkaiba ang government at private.  parehas sila nagtuturuan.  hintayan nanaman siguro ito talaga hanggang ma "inform" yung technical department na 5mbps na dapat ang speed ng plan 999

Before Xperience plan 999 became 3mbps, I think it was 1.5mbps. It took quite a while for the upgrade to propagate to the subscribers.

There is a two step speed control in PLDT DSL. Speed is throttled at the DSLAM level where the downstream rate is normally set to around 3.6mbps. This should be upgraded to around 6mbps. Then there is a throttle at the IP layer. This is where the speed is set to 3mbps and will be upgraded to 5mbps.

Nangga-gago ba ang PLDT? Parang sa umaga nililimitahan nila yung bandwidth ng connection sa Youtube, umaabot lang nang average 50 kpbs, minsan pumipitik sa 180 kbps pero bumabalik din. Malabo na nga, nagii-skip pa, parang CD na may gasgas. Kaya kung gusto ko talaga panoorin yung video dinadownload ko pa muna yung buong video tangna.

There is not much on IPv6 web wise. By default, the browser uses IPv4 if it is available. Try this url.

http://test-ipv6.com/

If you're running a IPv6 aware torrent client on the PC then it's able to connect to other IPv6 clients through teredo tunneling courtesy of Windows 10. It gets you through whatever traffic shaping of your ISP.

yup.  i remember installing teredo on utorrent.  but my browser does not seem to connect via ipv6.  its timing out.  i still cannot seem to enable ipv6 here.  i remember asking it before and i cannot seem to enable it.  torrents seem to connect on ipv6 depending on which torrent i am downloading though

i think you need to tell them that you are "transferring" to fibr and not applying for a new line.  meron fb page ang pldt fibr users where you could ask them how it works.  may nabasa ako nagtanong regarding "switching" to fibr.  it was discussed over there that the pldt "customer service" do not have an idea on how it works.  maybe you could try contacting one of the agents on that page.  nabasa ko lang na pag lilipat mo yung linya mo sa fibr pwedeing wala yung pre termination fee.  im just not sure if the installation would be free though

Fiber to home as far as I know. The cable going to the modem is not CAT 3

I can attest to this. Just had fibr installed, after 6 weeks of basically arguing every time I call to migrate my dsl to fibr. They will cut your existing copper wires and install a new line and obviously a new modem.

If your paying 3700 for 8mbps dsl+landline, like I did, you should switch over to fibr. My new plan is now 2899 for fibr+landline. Saved 800 and get 100mbps (current promo for 6 months but will go back to 50mbps.

Now the only thing I need to figure out is how to get the full speed on my wireless router. The technician said that they are only getting around 40ish when connected wireless. Tested on lan cable and I'm getting 98mbps on speedtest. I'm using an asus n66U router which can go up to 300mbps. Maybe I should switch to an ac router.

^ Check if your wireless clients are dual-band N capable first, a lot of interference on 2.4Ghz can slow your speeds down a lot. Switch over your most important devices to 5Ghz if possible.

I have to either reset my asus router and tinker with the config. But not sure what else what I can change aside from the same I did to the fibr modem/router.

I notice something like that too. Speedtest says I'm on 5Mbps (when using PLDT Makati server) but my torrent speed seems to fluctuate between 3 and 5Mbps and seems to stay more on 3Mbps.

Anyways, we just noticed we have no dial tone so perhaps it's related to our recent slow connection.

a rep from PLDT gave a call and said that our acct is eligible for an upgrade. when i asked what sort of upgrade, i was told that from 2 Mbps it would be upgraded to 4 Mbps for an additional P200 a month.

hell no. i am already paying for expensive but slow internet and i am not gonna spend another Peso.

actually... that sounds suspicious. i have never encountered "4 Mbps" before. i am gonna give PLDT a call tomorrow.

i also asked if PLDT has any scheduled plans to upgrade plan 1299's speed for free. i was told there's none.

ah well, i am not a heavy downloader anyway so i won't upgrade.

Not sure. I believe they can program it so you can still keep the old number. For the lines, you mean you want to keep the extension phonelines? I'm not sure either since all the calls appear to go through the modem now, and that in effect acts as a "splitter".

You can ask the lineman to replace the "service cable" (the cable from the distribution box to your terminal box) and on your part, you can buy a size 22AWG telephone wire and have them replace the old one from the terminal box to the phone jack.

One of my co-workers recently said that their neighbors are able to connect to their pldtmydsl wifi router even when he keeps changing the password.

I got curious and tried some WPS hack apps from the Play Store. I tried it on our pldt router and the app showed me the wpa2 password when WPS is enabled. I tried it on other wps-enabled wireless networks within our area and it seems the other brands like ZTE and Askey do not have the vulnerability.

Just thought I'd share this. If you're using pldt's wireless router, disable WPS.

Anyways, I'm gonna see if this app just picked up the supposedly "hacked" password from my own phone.

the ip address on my router starts with 100.x.x.x while websites show that my ip address starts with 124.x.x.x.  it was just recently that this happened.  i was always getting the 124 ip before but recently noticed it changed to 100.  but external ip remains at 124.x.x.x

100.x.x.1 for the gateway.  i confirmed its really 100.x.x.x.  ip detected by websites is 124.x.x.x which is the previously showed ip by the router.  it just happened by itself.  i did not do anything.

my connection was actually upgraded since our building is on its way to be fibr soon.  our previous 5mbps for plan 999 is now 8mbps.  we are locked in for 2 years for getting this though.  another issue that i noticed with my internet now is its actually slower during the daytime.  i did not experience any slow downs at any time of the day 3 years ago.  the 3mbps i was getting was solid the whole day.

After 5 years... PLDT has finally migrated my DSL account to Fiber...

that upload speed!  plan 2899 ba yan?

Yes...

pero may daya din... this was the test when it was first activated...

(http://www.speedtest.net/result/6017735620.png)

dapat 50 upload mo talaga.  reklamo mo dapat talaga yan.  sakin kasi 10 ang upload at marami nga talagang nagkakaproblema sa upload.  but im on plan 1899.  mas madali sayo magreklamo kasi yung 1899 medyo kaya pa nila lokohin.  yang sayo matinding pandaraya na kung 10mbps din ang upload kagaya naming mga naka 1899.  just call 172 para ayusin.

Same here for 1699 bundle plan. It happened after they switched from public IPs to the private ones.

I checked the ADSL modem status page. The downstream data rate was reduced to only 4000kbps. It was well above 6000kbps before to allow for protocol overhead. How can you possibly get 5mbps if the DSL line is physically throttled to 4mbps?

Around March. See the post above. Shortly after that, my daughter complained that the internet at home was slower than the plan 1299 in my mother-in-law's house. I checked and discovered the slower data rate. Every time, PLDT tweaks something on the DSL settings, often that data rate changes. Sometimes for better and sometimes for worse.

you can go to your nearest pldt business center to have them replaced for free.  just bring it there and they will immediately give you a new one.  well, thats what i did before.   i didnt even bother to fall in line since it takes a few seconds for them to give you a new one.  no papers needed to be signed

How I wish they could switch to IPv6. It would allow me access to my home NAS again.

I wonder if behind the CGNAT, a PLDT DSL subscriber can access another PLDT DSL subscriber using the internal IP address. I am on Globe DSL in the office but I am waiting for fibre before I switch. The house is about 500 meters away.

We lost the DSL signal at home at around 1pm. Dial tone is still there. If there is no DSL by tomorrow morning, I am calling PLDT service.

I see this as an opportunity to have them correct the low downstream data rate as well and so it's actually good this happened.

HI got lucky last time it happened. When I lost the DSL signal , they put me in open slot with unthrottled down stream. Before that, it was throttled to 6mbps, appropriate for my subscription. Even if I get just 6mbps, it's still better than the 4mbps before the outage.

It started last August 27 until now but when midnight strike I think 1am until 4am it goes 16mbps DL rate.
Is PLDT Fibr like PLDT DSL? Wherein the total bandwidth is divided into the users connected in the terminal box?

Fiber Connections and DSL use the same data source... the only difference between the two is that Fiber uses a "virtually" lossless transmission medium (fiber optic) while xDSL uses copper to transmit data to the user. So technically, fiber optic internet connections only made it possible to eliminate bandwidth loss due to distance and electrical interference... but the backend bandwidth problems are still there.

I just got installed a few weeks ago. I applied online Saturday, and they are already installing it on Monday (sadly I was not at home), and got installed Tuesday, it got activated Thursday.

1899 20Mbps Unlimited plan, it includes a phone, and I didn't pay anything, and since I "switch" from a competitor, I have 6months 50% discount on the bill. so for the next 6months, I'll only be paying 950 (no installation fee, and no modem fee)

So far I have been getting consistent 20Mbps up/down -- I already setup a "remote" connection, so I just connect to my home desktop and do all "personal"/non-work related stuff on the remote desktop (even youtube plays quite OK on the remote desktop)

i had to call pldt to have mine set to bridge mode.  it seems it would depend on your area or "luck" if you could actually set your pldt ONU into bridge mode.  i already tried doing it myself but i do not get "bridge" mode "for real".  i could just set the drop down box to display "bridge mode" but in reality its still in router mode.  so make sure to confirm if you are in bridge mode.  my ping to certain servers went down significantly after i called pldt to set it to bridge mode.

that's what my niece did...

You can apply for connection with the linemen installing PLDT Fibre.

When I saw a couple of them stringing cables near my apartment home office, I asked if it was fibre they were laying. They answered yes and said I can apply through them for as long as it's an unlimited plan 1899 or higher. I submitted a xerox copy of my ID as well as contact number. The next day in the morning they they called and can install the fibre. By the afternoon, it's up and running.

Tried calling 171 to apply for an upgrade since I logged into my PLDT myHome account and found my application was cancelled. The CSR said Fibr was not yet available at my place. I insisted that an agent was going house to house handing out flyers already. She took my application anyway. Also found out that there are a lot of hoops to go through just to change the company ID number you used for the initial application (back in 2009). Good thing I found my old ID.

I didn't see them installing. I have this feeling that the agent handing out flyers is just making an informal survey of the area, like a market feasibility. I did see a roll of fiber cable lying around one of the electric poles. Not sure if they left it there for installation later.

Look for these distribution boxes...
If they are within 5 to 6 posts away from your house, they should be able to install/upgrade you to a fibr account.

Ultimately, it will be the lineman's decision whether they can install fibre. They know where the boxes are and how far it is from your house. When I asked them, they were in the process of laying cable to another house further than mine from the point of tap. In the future, they plan on installing a box closer to my house but for now they were willing to lay cable from the box down on another street.

Is there currently an issue with Chrome and PLDT? We can't access anything using Chrome on a desktop PC. All other browsers work fine and so does Chrome on my phone. I suspected it could simply be a bad browser configuration but when we contacted PLDT, the CSR said it's a Chrome issue.

By the way, been able to get 5Mbps again on PLDT. I checked the PLDT modem and it's now:

Upstream Speed 925 kbps

^ 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.

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

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

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.

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.

yung condo namin inuna muna maglagay ng parang box sa pinaka terminal bago naging "fibr-ready" yung units.  so by "fibr-ready" i guess they mean wala pa kayo nung box kung saan ikakabit ang fibr for every unit.  may 8 slots per box ata yun.  kaya siguro dapat listo ka sa ganyan.  check mo ng mabuti kung meron nang box na nilalagay at monitor mo kung matatapos na.  parang limited slots din kasi ata nilalagay nila per condo

I called 171 to request to put my router on the DMZ. They sent over a tech to inspect my router. The tech recommended to just simply put the Fibre modem (ONU) on bridge mode. After inspecting to see if my router is "Fibre capable", he called their office and PLDT changed the settings of the ONU remotely. Now my router is getting the public IP. However, you would lose internet connectivity from the ONU's built-in WiFi.

Even if the ONU is in bridge mode, the phone still works. It seems to not rely on the IP connection.

On my condo, we are still on DSL. Through the years, service has slowly degraded in quality. The 5mbps plan can barely sustain one Youtube user. I received a small note today informing that we (whole building) will lose phone and internet service on Jan. 20. It is part of PLDT's "continuing drive to improve service". Hopefully that includes the upgrade to Fibre.

are the max attainable download/upload rate shown in the router settings related to the quality of the cable laid on your place or is it an artificial limit imposed by your provider?

my max download rate is around 8000+ kbps (8mbps), and my plan's download rate is 4mbps. does this mean even if i switch providers this will still be my max rate, e.g. it has to do with the cable running up from our condo's cabinet to my unit?

It is the lesser of the 2 limits. It is artficially limited by the DSL slot and line checked by the modem if it is really achieved. In that case, it adapts to a lower rate. My DSL modem is artificially throttled to 4192kbps downstream datarate. Before it was 6000+kbps. That's on the old Xperience 5mbps plan that no longer exists. It seems I have been downgraded to 3mbps (plan 1299) but I am still paying 1599/month for phone+DSL service.

You need to have Fibre or VDSL to realistically attain 20mbps.

I think the meat of borgy_t's question was whether or not he could achieve speeds higher than 8Mbps by switching providers (or plans), in case it was the physical lines in their building that was limiting his link speed to 8Mbps.

IMO if Fibr is available then do the upgrade anyway (it's still cheaper per Mb than DSL), then bug your building admin to run a fresh RJ45 for you if the plan's advertised speed ends up unattainable.

In our case, residential myDSL pro that was advertised at 15Mbps, but for years PLDT could only give us at best 8Mbps (attempted several times with a powerpack add-on at their side of the network appliance, IIRC but that caused too much disconnections)...until they moved us to a different junction box 2 blocks further away than the old one...and now could get decent 14-15Mbps, per our plan.  Process to move took us around 2-3 weeks, IIRC.

Upgrade from 5mbps DSL to 20mbps Fibr (FTTB-VDSL2) with free router/modem and waived installation charge. Additional 200 pesos lang sa monthly sa bill with 3 year lock-in period. Ambilis nila. Kabit agad in a couple of days.

IMO testmy is crap. Aside from not properly accounting for speed ramp-ups, their results vary wildly from run to run. Tried the global multi-thread several times the last few days and got some results in the 30-40Mbps range, then a bunch at 18-21, then some at 8-10.

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r29569387-trueSTREAM-differences-between-speedtest-net-and-testmy-net (http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r29569387-trueSTREAM-differences-between-speedtest-net-and-testmy-net)

The best 'tests' are the actual speeds you get from real downloads or streaming services.

I'm using testmy.net results and whenever I got low results I report it to PLDT and request some refunds and they give it. But in case if testmy is really crap. Can you suggest any apps or site that can test actual speeds? I do not have something to download that is large enough to test my download speeds.

My real world speed test are well seeded torrents. Been getting 5.9MB/s down, 9MB/s up so can confirm the 50/90 Mbps reported by speedtest is legit.

Edit: ss of dl speed. Not seeding anything right now but will post when I have the chance to.

yup.  bridge mode.  ang setting ng router ko ay "wireless router" instead of "access point".  gumanda din nga connection ko nung nag bridge mode na.  nawala latency kasi open na open na ang ports unlike before na parang hinaharang ni pldt sa side nya ang connection kaya mahirap kahit naka set sa port forward yung ports.  gusto ko lang sana double ang upload speed.  which i think is a bug since you should be getting around 50mbps only.  sakin walang bug.  lol

Try turning of the modem for, at least, 30 minutes to change your IP... my upload and download speeds were the same last week after an hour of power outage. So I decided to turn of the modem this morning to force it to change IP address. Now this is what I get again...

ano bang error ang lumalabas?  kung username/password is incorrect hindi blocked ang access mo.  mali lang ang username or password.  pag naka blocked ka ang lalabas na error ay "you do not have access to this account" or something to similar to that

Have your searched the TPC forum's PDLT thread? Someone there must have encountered your modem. You can also try PinoyDSL forums. If all else fails, set the modem to bridge mode and use your own router.

Still running on the old copper DSL line right now as the Fiber still needs to be activated, hopefully by tomorrow. The moment it activates I'm having the old line disconnected.

No option for migration when applying online, if there is I couldn't find it on the PLDT site. On the bright side the old number has a lot of spammers and telemarketers on it already. Hassle lang mag-update.

We are upgrading from DSL plan 999 (allegedly 5mbps) + phone to UNLI Fibr 1899. But because we are on a condo, the fiber cable is only up to the wiring closet at the ground floor. The last few meters will be using VDSL.

I said "alleged" because before the ADSL modem would indicate only a downstream rate of about 4mbps. We were getting only about 3.6mbps effective download rate and a piss poor 700kbs upload rate. Soon after we applied for the upgrade, the downstream rate went up to 20mbps. On Speedtest, we were getting 16mbps.

The technician delivered the VDSL modem the other day but did not proceed to upgrade because our line was "not yet activated". A PLDT inspector came this morning and wondered why we are still on ADSL.

The VDSL modem is model HG180U. I wonder if it is easy to switch to bridge mode. The pure fibr modem I am using at the office settings can't be changed. I asked PLDT to remotely switch it to bridge mode so I can forward ports from my router.

The VDSL modem is model HG180U. I wonder if it is easy to switch to bridge mode. The pure fibr modem I am using at the office settings can't be changed. I asked PLDT to remotely switch it to bridge mode so I can forward ports from my router.

This used to be configurable (https://gist.github.com/kbeflo/de3b1610b1879f8e92966ba106f83f97) but PLDT silently rolled out a firmware update that locks everything out unless you ask them for a (time-limited) admin account.

Luckily it didn't affect what's already set, and I had my port forwards already done when they rolled out that update.

We are upgrading from DSL plan 999 (allegedly 5mbps) + phone to UNLI Fibr 1899. But because we are on a condo, the fiber cable is only up to the wiring closet at the ground floor. The last few meters will be using VDSL.

I said "alleged" because before the ADSL modem would indicate only a downstream rate of about 4mbps. We were getting only about 3.6mbps effective download rate and a piss poor 700kbs upload rate. Soon after we applied for the upgrade, the downstream rate went up to 20mbps. On Speedtest, we were getting 16mbps.

The technician delivered the VDSL modem the other day but did not proceed to upgrade because our line was "not yet activated". A PLDT inspector came this morning and wondered why we are still on ADSL.

congrats!! does this mean their customer service has people again? natengga yung supposed upgrade namin to fibr (pero malamang vdsl last few meters because condo din kami like you though lowrise), pupuntahan na dapat for site inspection, tapos di na natuloy nagkatanggalan na ng contractual. wtf.

what floor is your unit in?
my classmate was able to ask the technician to install the fiber all the way to his unit on the 8th floor...


Yes it would be nice to have fiber all the way. The past few days rains have put a crackling sound to the dial tone.

We're at the 4th floor. It's a DMCI condo complex. It's a low rise condo (5floor building but over 20 units per floor). I think it might be possible to convince the installer to string the extra length of fiber to the unit itself as we are just above the wiring closet. But that would also mean switching modems from VDSL to a fibre modem.  I haven't met the installer as I am away during the day.

My wife and son had gone to the PLDT office at Felix Avenue in Cainta. My wife noted the CSR people looked like the same ones she saw over 10 years ago when she applied for DSL, only older. The queue was quite long and it seemed to her almost everyone was applying for fibre.

It seems that the installers were contractual.

Installers are independent contractors, not PLDT employees. Ang ginawa ko nag-apply lang via PLDT website and they installed it within a week, although it took another week for them to activate it. Strangely though, after 2 weeks another installer came calling. I suspect that the second was from the agent I applied with last year.

May loss of speed din when going from fiber to vdsl. See my sig. I subscribed on 100mbps fiber in Japan but only until the junction box outside the apartment building. Inside its normal copper line.

We have finally been connected to "Fibr" only today. One week after applying, a technician visited our condo unit and left us the VDSL modem. He said our slot was not yet activated. An inspector came the next day and was surprised we were still on ADSL. Speaking to him over the phone from my office, he seemed surprised we were even on ADSL at all. He was expecting a new installation. A week after that, we lost internet. We are always directed to the "Subscriber payment reminder page".  The page instructed to call 171.

After 5 days of no internet and daily calls to 171, my wife went to the PLDT office yesterday to complain. The CSR assured my wife that action will be taken ASAP. She was also assured that Fibr in the form of VDSL is indeed available at our condo contrary to what the condo management office had said that it was not. It turns out the VDSL distribution box is not in the condo building itself but behind the guard house at the condo complex entrance over 100 meters away.

By noon today, they replaced the modem and running a quick speed test showed the speed to be 20mbps download and 15mbps upload. Ping at 21ms isn't as good as the 1-2ms of a fully Fiber connection bit hey after 5 days without internet, I will take it. I asked the installer if it is possible to switch the modem to bridge mode. They said they just do installation but the modem can be switched to bridge mode. I did check the modem status and the IP address it obtained is the same one when I check it from an external web site. So it is not shared.

Gonna get our pldt phone with dsl line disconnected soon. Fibr isn't available in the area where we're moving so I opted for converge fiberx. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's better than pldt.

By the way, pldt no longer requires the phone unit and modem to be surrendered before they cut the line. Disconnection is also immediate upon settling the account.

Really? I'll bring the units just in case. The customer rep I talked to said there was no need.

I just don't like that it's not possible to schedule the disconnection. Disconnection happens right at the moment you file and settle the final bill.

What I did was wait for the new line to be activated then, when it was all up and running went to the nearest PLDT office and asked that it be disconnected, surrendering the modem and the filter and paying the balance (its pro-rated so you only pay the amount up to the date of disconnection). After that you will get a call to confirm the disconnection.

I managed to switch PLDT's VDSL modem router to bridge mode last night. Getting info to do this was not easy. Even with the info, you have to go through several steps to just access the super user pages. The ping times dropped a few msec but it is still double digits to the pldt server.

Finally had our old line disconnected. Not sure what the plan name was but it was landline with 5Mbps (started from 784kbps to 1Mbps to 3Mbps to 5Mbps with each upgrade of pldt). They didn't take the landline unit nor the just-a-few-months old modem even though I already had both with me.

not sure if it's related but my "mole" in both telcos tells me that there's a current outflux of Cisco certified network specialists going on... so that could be the reason why there's a sudden rise in network hiccups lately.

I was messing with my office router settings last night. I was accessing it remotely from my house courtesy of PLDT's public IP address. I was setting it up for mesh wifi. When I got to the the office this morning, there was no internet. I couldn't even access the router's web setup pages.

Temporarily, I swapped in my old CDR-King CW-5358U router. LAN internet speeds held up well for my PLDT 1899 (25mbps down/50mbps up). Speedtest was decent at around 25mbps up and down speeds. Probably close to its limits. Don't know about its wireless speeds however.

So with internet fixed, I get back to the TP-Link Archer C7 router. It's running OpenWRT. I remember it could still be accessed from the WAN side. So I plugged its WAN port to one of the CDR-King's LAN port. I checked from the CDR-King that TP-Link has obtained an IP address. I then proceeded to access the TP-Link router from the WAN port. It turns out that the mesh package changed its LAN and WiFi settings. The DHCP server was disabled and no IP address was assigned to the LAN port.


P.S. My PLDT fiber modem settings are set to bridged mode through a request via PLDT's 171. I can connect any router to the ONU and it will obtain one (but only one) public IP address.
