The Philippine market for internet service providers is very fierce, and with all the advertising and promotions, it’s really hard to choose which ISP to subscribe to. Here are a few tips though:
- See what’s the nearest node to your home. The shorter distance the node from your modem is, the lesser the attenuation in signal and the better chances you get the optimum speed
- Check the connectivity and maturity of ISPs in your region. Get advice from real users in your community. There are places which a certain ISP is great, and in some places they’re not… (could be of reasons like: old equipments, failing maintenance, weak user network)
- If pricing is of concern to you (of course, it should be), then compare their prices. And the promotions (freebies) that come along with the subscription.
- Check out their customer support. How accessible are they? or their office from your home?
Too general tips.
