My new ISP – Globelines

I’ve switched to a new ISP lately because I was disappointed by my old Smart Bro ISP. It keeps disconnecting from the internet and has a very slow connection. I am a loyal subscriber of Smart Bro for a year and decided immediately to disconnect from the service because of the said latter.

I went to the Smart Wireless Center, paid my last bill and requested a permanent disconnection. After that, I went to Globe Center to apply for a 1mbps internet connection for 995 a month. The agent was fast and friendly. She said that they will survey my location if it is reachable within their service. The following day, they informed me that our house was ok for installation. So I paid my bill and the following day again, I began to enjoy their service. As advertised, my Globelines has a stable rate of 1mbps connection and can reach up to 2.5mbps on certain conditions. See image bellow. Now, I can download and browse Youtube simultaneously without having to wait for the buffer to load.

My Blog Resurrected

Whoa! First of all, I would like to thank Mark (a wordpress administrator) for reviving my blog again. If it wasn’t for him, this blog would cease to exist. Ok. I made my mistake and it will not happen again. Hehe. Last two months or so, I wasn’t aware that posting paid links on wordpress blog (except for those who have their own domain) is prohibited. Damn I didn’t read their Terms of Service Policy. But it’s all fine now. I will be posting updates on this blog next week so be sure to view this blog periodically. Ironically, this blog has a PR 3 even if it is banned two months ago. Thanks to all my friends for their support and I really appreciate that they didn’t delete my blog on their blogroll even if this blog is temporarily banned. Till next time.
