Need Advice For Tuguegarao Internet Service
« on: April 24, 2017, 06:36:02 AM »
Hello from Georgia,USA

   I have met a very nice and interesting lady from Tuguegarao and am needing advice concerning internet service. Due to her very busy work schedule, and hectic commute visiting an internet cafe is not convenient. I would like to find an affordable internet plan either home or preferably a pocket wifi. I am hoping someone can provide some information to help us be able to exchange e-mail and maybe chat on skype or viber. There is no need for streaming or downloads. Thanks for any help you can lend,  have a great day

I have never been there but according to Smart and Globe they have 4G there, so like most places in the Philippines, it will depend on cell towers in the location you decide to live. Deep purple is Globe 4G|coverage

Welcome Dave from Georgia,
Looks like Tuguegarao is way up north east tip of Luzon.

I was with a girl from Tuguegarao for about 8 years.  We lived in Quezon City, but spent a lot of time at her family home in Tuguegarao, or at least in Carig, a bit outside of town. 

I required internet for my work, so I paid to have a landline run to the house from the highway and I got dialup service.  It worked okay for my need to move word files around.  Cell phones were then in their infancy and no cell service there at that time, late 90s.  Any kind of phone there, away from "Centro", was unusual at that time.  I have not been to Tuguegarao since 2002.  Very different now, I am sure.  Probably more and better options for internet.
