I’ve been working as a freelancer for many years, so I’ve tried it all.
Philippine internet? It sucks! It really is —right? Anyone who’s living in the Philippines will absolutely nod in agreement to this. Whether it’s a tourist or a local resident —they all have their fair share of stress when it comes to the unpredictable and sluggish internet.
Regardless of the type of connection you’re subscribed into ( Wireless, Mobile, Hotspot, Broadband, or whatever that is) —there’s no guarantee that your connection is flawless. I mean, expect for imperfections. Welcome to the Philippines!
This Is By far My Best Internet Experience in The Philippines
PLDT FIBR PLAN (with a monthly subscription of 1,899)
