Sky Broadband Free Trial: First Speed and Ping Test

We were supposed to start the SkyBroadband free trial last October 16. But they called last October 15 and rescheduled the installation on October 22. Yesterday, they came and installed it. We paid the Php1000 deposit and submitted a photocopy of my SSS ID. According to them, they will call us on the 11th day for them to know if we will continue with the subscription.

Speed test yesterday at around 3:00PM showed 0.99Mb/s download and 0.45Mb/s upload speed.

Ping test gave them an A grade.

Here’s what an A grade means:

An excellent result! Expect all Internet applications to work very well assuming you have sufficient bandwidth. (Source)

It’s too early to decide. Let’s see if they could sustain the speed for the next 2 weeks. If the speed is stable, rain or shine, then, I might switch.

  1. Look’s promising….
    It seem’s na mabilis talaga ang sky kasi nga wala pa maxadung subscriber.
    I’ll wait for the next update po.

  2. mukhang pede.. medyo mabilis na din.. sana consistent sya, baka sa simula lang mabilis (hope not though)..

  3. thank for the info, i may relay it my kid.

  4. Hi Marhgil! Which Sky Broadband Plan are you testing? Plan 1.5 Mbps?


  5. @ManuelV… plan 1 Mbps. i’m not a sky cable subscriber eh.

  6. Looks good… thanks for this info sir! Pls update us kung stable and speed nya, Smartbro’s connection sucks big time! paputol putol nakakabanas. Baka itry ko tong sky broadband.. free trial naman sya eh hehe 🙂

  7. Thanks for the info, Marhgil! Okay pala ang Plan 1 Mbps. When they say upload speed of up to 512 Kbps, the 0.45 Mbps result you got is quite good. I hope the performance stays the same or even improves after the trial period ends.

  8. Within Manila area lang ba ang pwedeng magsubscribe?

  9. Did you continue your Skybroadband subscription, Marhgil?

  10. @ManuelV… yup! i already continued the subscription. already disconnected my Smart Bro.

  11. hi there i am using globe internet plan 1mbps. and this is what i got from speedtest.net :)) you can try it out. :))


    big fan here ogs:)

  12. Here in Batangas, Globe Tattoo is a more reliable connection than Smart Bro. In LPU, we have acquired a 4Mbps Globe leased-line for our internet. We are having problems with our PLDT DSL. Very unreliable connection and speed. Our 3.5 Mbps only gives around 2.7Mbps maximum.
