Title: Finally... RUFUS will be retuning to the Visayas for a visit!
Post by: RUFUS on March 27, 2018, 08:08:33 AM
Well, after 10 long years, the RUFUS' will be making a trek to the islands.
We will be heading there for 3 weeks in the second week of May.
We plan on hitting Cebu, Leyte, Bohol, and Palawan.
I am not sure how much internet access we will encounter, but I will try to post pics...
If not, you will have to wait until I return to the USofA  ;)
I'm bringing my Gopro, so deity/deities willing, I might have some good video.

Hope you have a wonderful vacation. We leave Cebu around the time you will be getting here, would have liked to meet up but timing is not on my side.

As for internet, if you have an LTE phone, with the correct frequencies for Smart or Globe, then you should be able to get online by loading one of their internet plans and then using your phone to share internet. Otherwise LTE pocket wifi and home LTE wifi devices are reasonable to buy here. Below are the frequencies a phone needs, I find Globe and Smart both work well in most cities. I recommend using the daily or weekly plan, whenever I use the monthly plan it seems that I run out of data quickly

Have you contacted the local suppliers to reserve a truck load of Red Horse? Wouldn't want to run short  :D
