I Should Have Been SMARTer!

Tuesday, March 08, 2011


It was my Mom's birthday a few days ago and we just had a grand celebration. Some of our relatives went to our house and celebrated this special day. Mom has around 13 siblings so you kinda get to understand how big "her" part of the family is and it is "doubly hard" to get them together at this day and age. Thank God for free video conferencing software; we got to talk some of them every once in a while through that medium. We seldom do this because I have one of the worse connections in the world. As much as I like how it does work with a mediocre 21/7 schedule... the connection is slow. Once you get a single person online with video you wouldn't be able to see the other ones; so much for conference calls if you can talk to only one person then huh?!

Then I remember... I got to see the better half of the Master Rapper Ms. Pia Magalona a few days before that who just switched to SMART Bro because of the bad experience she had on another provider's billing horror story... dang I almost wanted to throw mine out the window because of her speed tests.


Mine was 0.2 download and .02 upload with almost the same ping rate. Yeah I know... she did literally outSMART us all because we were on different connections. I'm a Computer Engineer by profession so I have a big idea what these rates are for. If I'm not getting the actual rate promised by my provider (which had the clause and word "UPTO" on all their packages) what am I going to do to get what I pay for?! EXACTLY my point!

With that out in the open I'll ask my Mom to wait for a few weeks while I weigh my chances getting a Smart Bro too. Check out one of the best things why I had to get one as soon as possible!

I can easily get SMART BRO Unlimited Home Broadband Plan 999 or 1995 for Free surf + Free All in one Printer + Free Calls and Texts with SMART Gold Lite Plan 300 for 6 months subscription + that connection rate... it just spells BLISS for me! What the hell was I thinking when I got mine huh?! That may just be the last straw so I could switch to SMART BRO now!






My Mom would have had the perfect birthday she wished for if we would have had a better line to get connected in the first place. I would give the WHOLE WORLD for her just like any good son would do! What a wonderful world this would have been for me too if I got what I need right?! You should too!


These are the times we should get SMARTer... and SMART BRO! Ha-ha! =)

Waaahhh ... Mine is 0.22 download and 0.2 upload.. Ping 505 ms.. Now, I don't know if that's fast connection or not.. :P

Hmm.. I really don't care if I have fast or slow net connection. Though I know that having a slow one could piss me off.. LOL. But honestly, as long as I can connect to , BLOGGER, Facebook and Twitter, as long as I can log in to my email accounts, as long as I can download torrents from the web... I'm all good. :P

P.S.
Belated Happy Birthday to your momma! :)

Very impressive naman yung speed ng smart bro, a tad pricey though, pero kung consistent naman ay ok na rin!
