Our normally reliable PLDT FIBR internet service has slowed to a crawl the last few hours.  Called Subictel / PLDT and they said that PLDT is having a nationwide problem.  She advised me to not unplug the modem or I might not get any service, and said they would call back when it is fixed.

Anyone else having PLDT internet issues this afternoon?  We have had strong rains all day here.  School was cancelled when we arrived due to heavy rain and flooding.

My PLDT FIBR started working better yesterday afternoon but still not great.  They called me and had me do a test in the evening, and it test at 20 mbps download.  The guy said "oh, that is very fast", and I said "No, that is slow, I usually get 50!"  So he scheduled techs to come out today.

They just came out and it tested at 40+ so I said it was ok for now.  I told them that some web sites seemed to be slow and they asked which ones, but I really didn't know at the time.

So, now, I think there is a larger problem with Philippines internet.  For example, another forum I follow will not load "site cannot be reached".  When I turned my VPN on with a US IP, no problem.

What do you think?

This problem seems to be solved today so everything is normal now.

Don, that is the problem I have with Globe here on either my computer or phone.  Many times I cannot access this forum without using a US or Hong Kong IP.  So I think you are right, it is something wrong with the internet here in PI.
