When it comes to local internet providers, we just have a few options. I already experience the services of the two major providers – PLDT and Sky Broadband. Honestly, they are not as reliable as I wish them to be.
And because of the global pandemic, the internet became the lifeline of livelihood and businesses. We wanted to try the new player – Converge but they are not yet available in our area.
I searched high and low – hoping that maybe, other small players can be a game-changer. If you’re like me, feel free to check out the list below,
For a quick reference, here are the different types of residential internet connections:
This is wireless internet access through mobile phones. The signal ranges from 3G, 4G to 5G which depends on your service provider (Smart, Globe, Sun Cellular, Touch Mobile (TM), and Talk & Text(TnT)) and mobile phone.
The analog signal is converted to digital through a modem and transmitted to a telephone network. The phone and internet share the same line, so you can’t use both at the same time.
Two lines are hooked in your home phone. One is for the internet while the other one is for the telephone line. This uses a router to transport data.
Fiber optic Internet is the future of broadband. It uses fiber-optic technology to reach the fastest speeds available today. It is sending a beam of light through fiber optic glass cables.
