What's your experience with MyDestiny internet? I want to know what others experience because I can't believe how bad their service is to our condominium, and I don't know if it's the same with other subscribers.

I don't know about the quality of MyDestiny cable internet, but their DSL service is really bad. My subscription started about a month ago and until today, my internet bandwidth has never reached anything close to the promised 512kbps bandwidth. Most of the time, I just get close to dial-up speed - just around 50kbps! And it often drops to lows of 10kbps! This is the Php1,688 unlimited plan. There have been a few days when I get a couple of hours of decent bandwidth - around 100kbps, but that's the best I've seen since I've subscribed.

I've called their technical support countless times and I get the same response everytime - that their going to check the problem or their going to send somebody to the condo to fix/replace the main modem where each subscriber in the condo is connected. But there has been no improvement in the slightest, whatsoever. I already sent an email to their technical support, help desk, and tech support supervisor, but it's been a few days and there's been no reply.

Once I get subscription from another provider, I will definitely have Mydestiny cut and ask for a full refund.

myDestiny was my first broadband ISP. I'm using myDSL now.

service sucks big time. my biggest complaint with them, as is your's is their technical support that doesn't do anything.

later on, I switched to BellTel cuz they were offering the same benefits as myDestiny. While their customer care is very superb, I cannot say the same for their repair team (they use the same repair team as myDestiny). So basically their customer care would always follow up if there were any problems with my connection, only to be bogged down by myDestiny's reapir crew.

In the end I had enough and just went with myDSL... though not the best technical support, at least the connection is active 90% of the time.

I have an officemate who's subscribed to Mydestiny cable internet. At first he wasn't satisfied because he wasn't getting the speed he needed, but now, the bandwidth has improved. But that's cable internet. My subscription is DSL. My cable TV is also provided by Destiny, and I have no qualms there. Cable internet is not available in our condo, and I don't understand why. That's why they offered the DSL connection. And the connection is soooo slow most of the time. Earlier when I got home, the bandwidth was less than 10kbps! It has improved to a around 100kbps just now, that's why I'm able to login to manilatonight. I'm sure that later, speed will get back to dial-up speed. It's like this everyday.

I read in another forum a post by another Mydestiny DSL subscriber who lives in another condo, and his complaints are very similar to mine. I guess Mydestiny's problems are with just their DSL service in condominiums. I have a hunch that all subscribers in our condo share just two broadband conntections. Mydestiny tech cupport mentioned that there are 2 main modems in the condo's admin office, and that's where all subscribers here are connected. If that's true then this setup really sucks. They shouldn't have done that. Each subscriber pays P16,000+/month for this service. DSL connections are supposed to be stable for a single subscriber, whereas cable internet speeds will vary depending on the number of users connected. But cable internet's maximum bandwidth is much faster. But if multiple users share a single DSL line, then speed and stability will suffer. At least that's how I understand it.

Oops, that's supposed to be P1,600+/month, not P16,000+/month.

It is, most probably, the location. If that's the case then they made a incompetent job in setting up the connections in our area, and probably didn't even do proper testing that any other right-minded person would do.

I've already talked their customer service countless times, and they always say that they'll check and fix the connection, but nothing good ever came out of this.

A few days ago the connection speed actually improved, I was getting decent speed (200+ kbps for a few days), although still a far cry from the supposed 512kbps. I actually thought that things were improving, but suddenly, just this morning, the connection stopped. No internet at all. If you can give me a number I can call other than customer service, where I can to to someone with more authority, I would appreciate it.

Eto nanaman po! Another few days of decent internet speed, about half of the promised 512kbps, then when I got home from work earlier, ayun! Wala nanamang internet! Down for more than 1 hour. Pag balik ng internet, eto, 100+ kbps lang. Ayos talaga tong mydestiny, parang walang pakialam sa customer! Mahigit isang buwan na, wala paring kwenta ang connection! Siguro kaya wala silang pakialam kasi walang ibang provider dito sa condo namin kundi sila. Kating-kati na ko lumipat ng ibang ISP!

To all MTC members, take it from my experience. DONOT SUBSCRIBE TO MYDESTINY!

Kung meron sa inyong maganda ang experience sa Mydestiny, napakaswerte nyo. Kung nag-iisip pa lang kayong mag-subscribe sa kanila, wag na! Isusugal mo lang ang pera mo. Mauubos lang ang pasensya mo.

FYI guys yung network kasi ng MyDestiny is Uncapped unlike the PLDT or other ISP naka CAP per user dito sa MYDestiny nde everyone is sharing the bandwidth.

Hehehe! got another tip na malaki savings if you have destiny internet... you can get Free Cable... :) Trade secret to pero i can tell you guys syempre trade din ehehhe!

Oo nga pla balik sa uncap network may down at up side to, upside if malaki bandwidth nila at kaunti kayo sa isang area sobrang lakas network nyo.. but incase sa isang condo mga 100 kayo nag s-share heheh gapang talga. :)

But i heard mag u-upgrade sila ng ngayon ng bandwith kaya magiging ok na sila...

Galing ako dun kaya alam ko work around ng systema nila hehehe!

That explains it... kaya pala sobrang inconsistent ng bandwidth, from 0 to 200+ kbps lang, and it never reaches the suppssed 512kbps bandwidth.

May update ako sa kabulokan ng serbisyo ng Mydestiny. Last Saturday night, down nanaman! I tried calling customer service several times, but, as expected, all I got were recordings saying that nobody's available to take my call. I tried they're SMS service, and supposedly someone would call me back within 20 mins. I texted 5 times, and (why am I not surprised?), nobody from Mydestiny called me that night. Kinabukasan, nag text ulit ako, at sa wakas, may tumawag, at aayusin daw sa hapon ang connection. HAPON! Kahapon pa ang problema tapos kinabukasan pa nang hapon aayusin!! Ibang klase talaga to. Hindi lang naman ako ang apektado, kundi lahat ng subscribers sa condo, down ang internet. Talagang hindi binibigyan ng halaga ang customer. Sa awa ng diyos, pagdaying ng tanghali, naayos naman, pero siyempre, mabagal pa rin. 100+kbps lang on the average ang nakukuha ko tuwing sinusukat ko ang bandwidth.

Guess what?? Our internet connection went down again yesterday. My wife called customer support at around noon yesterday, and syempre, as expected from Mydestiny, hanggang ngayon, di pa rin ayos. Before I left home this morning, wala paring internet. Wala talagang kwenta.
