It was fortunate that they offer a 15 day trial with no cash out and fees.
I would admit that different ISPs have different experiences as to the location and the time where they were used. I opted for this since according to some of my friends from the neighborhood, it was stable and giving them good speed and service. I contacted their hotline and scheduled an installation. They asked if I would wish for a normal modem or one with a built in wifi. Of course I went for the wifi. It only had a 2000 pesos deposit versus the 1000Php for just the modem. Furthermore, it was fully refundable.
After calling and scheduling, it was noteworthy that a day before I got a phone call from them confirming everything and asked if I had questions or needed anything else.
I opted to try their 3mbps package to be able to check their stability and promised speed. My first speed testing clocked in at 2.88 mbps. Subsequent ones have the same range in terms of speed.
In case you wanted to check things out. Here are their plans. (taken from http://www.mysky.com.ph/locations/loc/3/manila/plans )
These plans aren't automatic. One would need to top-up and check into a website to be able to choose what one wants. The only problem here would be if you are in game and suddenly you reach that mark. Also if the charges are changed into yearly, semi-annually or quarterly, there would be discounts such as 1 month discount to 15 days to 7.5 days off.
Here are the other plans.
These were taken from Sky's website as of 6/16/13.
So far, everything seems good. It has been raining hard and my internet connection isn't affected. The only concern for us is that my brother is checking if his games like League of Legends and other online stuff are affected. Please do tell me your experiences on your ISP so that I could compare and think if I would continue and subscribed with Sky Broadband. THANKS!!!!
After making my brother play his game, we found out that there was a problem logging in. He couldn't do it and an error message is popping out. He went back to using the old isp to play his game. The usage of Sky Broadband as an ISP for his particular game caused some problems. Upon checking their support pages, a lot of gamers had problems with this ISP. They couldn't connect. I have contacted Sky's customer service and they have told me to do some measures. Like restarting the modem and also the laptop and for the moment try to observe. Since my brother can't play during the weekdays, I tinkered with it and was able to play after doing their requests. So far, everything seems good. I have decided to cut my old ISP and use Sky's service from now on.
