At Excel Cafe because PLDT Saver Sucks

We have dial-up connection to the Internet at home. Can't afford a DSL :-( The children would shout with joy if they get lucky enough to connect at speed higher than 30kbps if at all.
It seems all PLDT subscribers have taken advantage of the unlimited internet access by upgrading one's subcription to PLDT saver. So the scramble to get a connection is the first problem. Next would to get a faster connection.
So I am here at the Excel internet cafe at SM City. And it's fast. I downloaded the free AVG in less than 10 minutes. At the Netopia in Gaisano Tabunok, it was almost as slow as our dial-up.
