PLDT myDSL Application Update 2 | Some Tips

Update 1 here.

After paying last April 27, I got a call from the PLDT vendor in charge of installation last April 29 informing me that they were already in the area. I was not home at that time so I requested them to just come back on the morning of May 3. But no one came.

On May 4 afternoon, another PLDT personnel informed me that they were at my place because it was what was scheduled for me as per their records. I told them that I specifically requested for a morning installation because I am out in the afternoon. Hence, it was rescheduled yet again to May 5. I repeated several times that it has to be in the morning.

I was expecting a quick installation because as per my friend’s experience, it only took them less than 2 hours. However, it took them almost 8 hours to complete the job! I am not sure of the exact details but they had a lot of issues.

Some notes/tips:

  1. Upon arrival, they will tell you that their first activity will be to survey the area first. I don’t understand why they don’t do this prior installation or even prior approval just to save time.
  2. They had to look for the main box somewhere near the area. I asked them why they did not have that prior. I can’t remember why but I told them that for sure, PLDT has a record of their main boxes, especially in areas like Ortigas Center and they should not have a hard time locating it. But no, they had to roam around the close by streets to look for it. Naloka talaga ako dito pramis.
  3. They asked me if there was already a conduit wiring in my place. Di ko naman alam di ba. After inspection, there was none. And this is something that electricians do. It’s not PLDT’s scope of work. Ganon pala yun. And so I had to call our building administrator to request for one. Luckily, the electricians were available at that time and they were able to setup the wiring. Basta ito yung wire that connects to a PLDT box din outside the building. So, if your house is not yet ready, better have the conduit wiring in place before PLDT’s installation. Otherwise, sayang ang oras.
  4. They provide their own modem, which you can pay 1 time or add around Php 109.00 on top of your monthly bill.

But after all the hiccups, internet is back at home, finally! I felt really happy hahaha! And I realized that while I know can live without a DSL connection, I’m happier with one hehehehe.

I didn’t know this comes with a free landline. I felt funny hehehe. Let’s see how often I will use this. So far, my friend has used hers for food delivery. I’m not sharing it yet as I don’t see the need. Maybe later.

The phone and WIFI modem

Conversation with my friend hehe. But it’s true! I wish we had a land line when I was still in school!

 

PLDT myDSL Application Update 1

As I mentioned here, I applied for a PLDT myDSL Internet last Saturday. I availed Plan 1299 with 3Mbps but unlimited data volume. This is similar to my friend and she says it’s fast. 

I received a text message from PLDT yesterday  informing me of my account number and that I need to pay the initial fee of Php 2,300.00 as I opted for a one-time payment for the installation and WIFI modem. 

Since I am too lazy to go out and look for a PLDT office or bayad center, I called their customer service hotline to inquire if I can pay via online banking. The agent said yes, hence, Php 2,300.00 paid.

Now waiting for their next update. I think it will already be installation. However, it’s a long weekend so maybe that will be by next week already. 

2017 Week 17: Weekend Malling and Shopping

April 17-23, 2017

It was my brother’s birthday yesterday. Belated happy birthday kapatid!

Work has been generally peaceful, or so I thought. The storm came on Sunday, which did not allow us to sleep the whole night. Come Monday, bangag what else. KJ talaga. We can’t afford NOT to fix it because it affects Payroll. Soooo…..puyat kung puyat.

Pero nakakapraning because a friend’s ex- officemate collapsed last Friday in their office. She was brought to the hospital but she did not survive. The reason? They were so stressed the passed weeks because of an event. They were required to render extended work hours and report the next day on their usual work hours. Puyat + pagod + maybe other health issues = stressed much. And then here we were on Sunday….So guys and myself, wag abusuhin ang katawan kahit feeling natin kaya natin. Better be safe than sorry.

Anyway, weekend.

I went out on Saturday to apply for a PLDT myDSL subscription. I was thinking of not getting one anymore after my previous internet provider conked out¬†due to obstruction in the area but I think I still need to have a connection at home. While I can use my phone, it’s still unstable and if work calls, I don’t want to rush to the office just to have stable connection. So there, hopefully, my application will be approved.

I met up with my friend because she wants to chill after learning what happened to her officemate. Actually, she came from the funeral parlor before we met and she wanted to shake off some bad vibes. We went to Chilli’s for some nachos, soup, salad and unlimited margarita.

On Sunday, I went to mass early and then proceeded to Baclaran after to get some goodies to be sold by my sister-in-law. I wasn’t able to buy briefs. Wala akong makitang maganda. Di ko na mahanap si nanay na pinagbilhan ko months ago.

I went to Megamall after to look for office blouses. Unfortunately, some of my blouses need to retire because while they are still usable, most of them are already showing wear and tear. Mga 3-5 years old na rin kasi mostly. Luckily, those that I found were on 20% discount.

I met with my friend again and we went to S&R this time. It was the last day of my membership yesterday and I wanted to buy the Ariel 3KG and Muesli before my card expires as I don’t have plans of renewing it this year hehehehe. Di ko kasi nasusulit naman at nakakatempt lang gumastos.

Then ayun nga, Sunday to sawa, work work work work work para sa ekonomiya. Pak!

Btw, sino excited na sa additional April 28 holiday?! Syempre isa ako don dahil more days to sepnd in Baguio again at magbutingting ng kung ano sa bahay.

Have a great week ahead.

Bow.

Clam chowder. This was sooo good. I’ll try to make one at home hehehehe. Masarap ang mga soup lalo na sa Baguio.

Salad – greens with chicken, potato strings and cheese.

Unlimited margarita. Cheers!
