We’ve recently availed the Sky Cable 3Mbps for Php999 Internet broadband offering here at our house and had it for months now. We decided to avail and use this particular Sky Cable offering through recommendations of close family and with that, I’m here to highlight our experience with the service so far and tackle a few problems that we experienced throughout our days of using the internet service.
The said service holds a pretty decent ping. Overall we were still experiencing a few ping drops here and there, mainly if the number of users has increased or if change your position. However, overall ping experience and internet experience is quite satisfactorily. The offering of Php1,000 for a 3Mbps isn’t all that bad to be honest.
Frequent problems experienced
We’ve had a few problems encountered during our days with the service, mainly revolving around connections mishaps and sometimes internet signal problems that are quite troubling at certain affairs. It’s not a very convenient thing to experience, especially if you primarily need to check and make articles. To give you guys a fair not, we’re living in a close spaced location/room, with no particular source of signal efficiency, so that might have played a huge role in providing this particular problem, though I, myself have read a few similar issues regarding the service that there have been frequent connection cuts and is sometimes required the users to restart the modem.
Yesterday, a huge cable problem resulted to our internet broadband connection to be affected as well. It was out for a day or so and was only able to bring back the connection on the afternoon of yesterday. Connection problems and signal deficiencies are a huge problem of this particular service, though hopefully, we see it get fixed in the near future.
Internet activities (number of users in household)
Our activities are primarily involving youtube and simply run-in-the-mill internet browsing so the Sky Cable 3Mbps is doing wonders for us. However, downloading-wise, it’s not highly recommended, especially if you frequently have to download a large amount of files for movies, series, and whatnot. It is advisable to avail a faster connection on your end since the service itself isn’t that accurate in the connection department and frequently having to redownload failed downloads will be a norm if that’s your case. Only 2 users are more likely active in using the service on our household (myself and my little sister), which gives us a large amount of space since we don’t download files that much.
So far, we’re pretty much satisfied with the service, since none of my family members use the internet service but me and my sister, thus sapping on the internet isn’t a problem for us. However, if you’re looking for a sturdier and capable internet connection, then most likely the service ain’t a good call to take. Think of it as a good entry-level internet service, for those who don’t do much, rather than just browse and download light files, but for the more hardcore files and if a number of users are bigger than the usual, it might be best to pick a different service.
We can’t say much about the number of users part since we only have two active users here in our household, but it’s best to bet that the 3Mbps Sky Cable offering isn’t all that good
