Wait, Fibr na ang 10mbps and higher diba? So why only 1.2mbps upload speed? The maximum is only 7mbps sa DSL plans ni Globe according to their website. Did I miss something?
ADSL2+ Mode has a speed upto 24mbit/sec (download) "if" youre Attenuation is 19 or lower (20-25 only gets around 19mbps) 26 and above, you lest every mb/s speed every attenuation loss. with 1mbit/sec upload speed
ADSL2 Line has a speed upto 8mbit/sec (download) 'if" youre atternuation is 19 or lower. with 1mbit/sec upload speed
GDMT Line has a speed upto 3mbit/sec (download) 'if" youre atternuation is 19 or lower. with 320kbit/sec upload speed.
Fiber Optics has a potential upto 1gbit/sec for single mode connection. thus there's a lot of room for additional services, you can squeeze it by adding additional service on it like VoIP, IPTV. Just like what PLDT Fibr doing now. dunno if Globe also offers services like that.
By average, ang attenuation lang nakukuha majority ng subscriber ng ADSL2+ users sa pinas is around 20-30dbi, so if you plan to upgrade your DSL plan to higher speeds, make sure to check out Attenuation value first or else, youre just wasting your money for nothing.
Here's your chart if you plan to upgrade
Attenuation == Speed (accordance to available plans for Globe)
1dbi - 25dbi == 20mbps plans OK!
25dbi - 28dbi == 15mbps plans OK!
28dbi - 29dbi == 10mbps plans OK!
30dbi == 8mbps plans OK!
31dbi == 5mbps plans OK!
32dbi == 3mbps plans OK!
33dbi == 2mbps plans OK!
34dbi == 1mbps plans OK!
35dbi == below 1mbps plans OK!
36-37dbi == may cause intermittent to no sync issues
37dbi or higher == no sync issues
sa fiber connections, you dont have to worry those since there is no signal loss when regards to fiber since light doesnt get loss over the glass at it travels at the speed of light (nearly can travel around the world 27times per second)
