Oops… Please don’t confuse this “TATTOO” from the one I discussed in my previous blog post. I still don’t have a permanent ink tattoo since I haven’t achieved my “lawyer aspiration” yet (I haven’t even started!). What I meant about “TATTOO” this time is my home DSL connection made possible by Globe.
Globe is one of the leading cellullar phone network providers here in the Philippines. As part of their innovative host of products, they’ve come up with a DSL connection service under the trademark name TATTOO. I got mine last March 7. What I love about Globe’s Tattoo is it’s very easy to manipulate. Plus, given that I only subscribed for a 1 mbps connection, I must say that I am very much pleased with the result. As compared to a broadband connection (that thing that looks like USB), this one’s better and FASTER.
The installation only took a short while. But it was long enough for me due to my excitement to use the product. Hahaha! On the day of installation, the modem can provide you already with a connection. However, it operates only for about 500+ kbps. On the second day, I had some trouble establishing a connection. Thanks to all the good customer service agents I’ve chatted with through Globe’s newest chatting customer care hotline, I now have a full-powered connection.
The installation crew made the wires and all the cable stuff neat enough to be laid on a single working area. Now, I can comfortably work on my article assignments and upcoming tutorial sessions.
How about you, do you have a stable connection at home?
