CAMTECO’s Net – sluggish and expensive? No it is much too sluggish and much too high priced! Following weeks of problems with CAMTECO, we invested some far more money and connected to SMARTbro.
We often measure the speed and latency with the same server in Geneva, Switzerland. This is where by the “Silent Gardens Server” life with hundreds of brothers in a information-centre.
Offered as “broadband Web access”. Montly fees PHP 1,200
Sold as “3G Internet access”. Montly charges PHP 990
For lesser funds we get practically 5 situations far more upstream pace and much more than 12 times quicker downstream velocity. Byebye CAMTECO.
And you may perhaps also know that Camiguin has repeated brown-outs and black-outs. This early morning voltage plunged quite a few instances under 200 Volts. Our Electricity-On-Hold off devices cut ability to guard our appliances, network and computers. With the SMARTbro “Pocket-WiFi” we nonetheless experienced access to World wide web. Even when the entire island is in the dim, we however have entry. Smart has uninterruptible ability source (UPS) and turbines. CAMTECO has almost nothing. And we have photo voltaic electricity.
Probably we all should say superior bye to CAMTECO. Company is the missing phrase in their vocabulary.
Later a pal came, many thanks Rob, and brought his G4/LTE pocket modem, also from SMARTbro. In his location uphill Mambajao, he has 4G speed, but no LTE. We checked what we can get in Agoho. 3G only. Sir. ? It would be nice to have LTE, but for now we are content with our 3G/UMTS that provides us what we unquestionably want and it is more cost-effective than the awful landline.
Tomorrow we happily keep on with our travel report from japanese Mindanao.
