Hi I was just wandering if anyone knows of a satellite internet service provider in manila? My wife will be going to Manila for about a month to prepare for interview and medical:-) she has a laptop and we hope she can just use it from her sisters house but there is not cable connection in her sisters house. As many hours as we talk it would be about the same price or cheaper for her to have satellite service:-) Also the internet cafe's are kinda far from where she will be staying, and she will be very busy doing things for the medical and interview.

hi!

I think she can go to places that has a WI-FI connection such as starbucks, hotels and other establishments. She could ask if they have internet wi-fi connection then she is good to go! ........or if she wants to have a portable connection she could use SMART BRO an internet subscriber here in PI has a new system where you can plug in anytime anywhere...it is a portable internet connection. she will just visit to any nearest SMART Wireless Center nationwide. what do u think?

You might consider hooking up DSL at sisters house if she has a land line. That's what I did and my wife left the laptop with her sister and they yak almost everyday. Sure helps with the homesickness. Cost about $10 a month for DSL plus $10 for the landline. I had to have the landline installed also. Didn't cost much.

Hi dont rely too much from the ad of smart bro plug ins,it has a cache,you cant just buy and plug it in.i made an inquiry about it because i thought of buying one so i could have a back up whenever im losing my unlimited smart bro connection but was surprised when i went to smart wireless center and was told that in order to purchase that i must be sure that i have a 3G(cellphone) signal to the place where i'll be using it(i live in Manila),they also mentioned something about USB i just forgot about it.so make sure you have the signal because once you bought it you cant return it anymore.it cost 3,800pesos.

Im sure when u visit smart wireless center they will explain it also to you and they will not just let you buy it.

good luck :thumbs:

David, one of my good friend Hannyperez she is currently at Iloilo province. She used her own celfon to get an internet connections cost P10.00 per 30 minutes surfing. She will connect it to smart internet provider from the celfon then used a usb to connect it to the laptop. As long as your celfon has a smart signal, u'll be connected it to the internet using her own laptop instead of the celfon only. We were chatting for 3 hours last night and I would say the speed connections was very good. Please do send pm hannyperez for further instructions. You & your wife will definitely save money with this. ;)

"Our Wedding Prayer"

Lord,help us to remember when we first met,and the strong love that grew between us.

To work the love into practical things so nothing can divide us

Grant us a Love that grows stronger with each passing year.

We ask for words both kind and loving

and for hearts always ready to ask forgiveness as well as to forgive.

Guide us to overcome every challenge

and keep our dreams pure to each other always.

Dear Lord,we put our marriage into Your hands.Amen

If your heart acquires strength, you will be able to remove blemishes from others without thinking evil of them.

A satellite internet connection like HughesNet is available just about anywhere you have line-of-sight with the carrying satellite. Southeast Asia should be no problem. North of the artic circle or south of the Antarctic circle things get a little difficult especially in mountainous areas. Keep in mind that it will be necessary to install a receiver and dish for this connection. Probably rather pricey.


Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensedregistered pharmacist". (because somebody gives a damn)
