Within a week after arrival in the Philippines, we have Internet at home now. Wow!!
Since my father passed away in January I didn't have time or was not in the mood to update my Blog. Also the approaching retirement, as of April 1st, meant too many things to organize, so I failed to work on my Blog, which I will rectify the comming days and weeks, by writing little stories or remarkable events in the past. I will back- or anti-date them as well.
Last week we have visited the branch offices of the major Internet providers in the Philippines, being Globe and Smart. It turned out that Smart could only provide wireless Internet in a barangay close to Urdaneta and not our barangay. Next we were informed by the Globe sales lady that only in an area at a distance of maximum 1.5 km from town proper wireless Internet was available and via landline they did not service our barangay.
