P is for Palpak

Confirmed! The P in PLDT stands for "Palpak."
Palpak is synonymous with incompetent or failure, in case you don't understand Filipino.

My PLDT land line phone still doesn't have a dial tone after reporting a complaint 3 days ago.
To make matters more annoying, when I called PLDT's customer service hotline for a follow up which isn't toll free since I'm using my mobile phone, their automatic answering machine informed me upon entering my land line number that the land line number is invalid. How stupid is that?

My internet connection is also affected. It keeps getting disconnected and has become as slooooow as a slug.

My basic monthly service fee alone is already P2,348 (around $52) , and that doesn't include the call/usage charges.
I feel like I'm paying so much for such crappy service.
This is what Filipinos get when there is a monopoly in telecommunications.
