No remedy yet for Globe League of Legends players with latency issues

If you’re a League of Legends (LoL) player sitting on a Globe internet connection and experiencing frequent lags during the game, you’re not alone. Other LoL players’ game experience is also being affected when they play with Globe users that lag.


Garena PH, an online gaming services provider exclusively distributing League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, and Defense of the Ancients, has confirmed and pinpointed the cause. It seems that Globe users are having a hard time connecting to LoL servers (hosted by PLDT data centers) during peak time due to Globe’s limited bandwidth when connecting to a PLDT data server. And this is a problem when web sites, forums, services hosted by PLDT are heavily accessed and when max concurrent users have been reached.

According to an announcement made by Garena PH, Globe has no immediate plans to resolve this issue which can directly be remedied by upgrading the bandwidth allocated to connections to PLDT data centers.

Right now, Garena PH is looking into alternative ways to divert and re-route traffic of Globe users accessing the League of Legends servers. However, with no immediate solution in sight, they recommend playing on a PLDT internet line or in cafes subscribed to PLDT DSL.

    baka naman PLDT yung ayaw magpapasok kay Globe? hehe pero seriously this is a problem for players to enjoy the game. yung DOTA and HoN hindi ba nagkakaganitong problema? LoL lang ba?

    calvin can you please make an article about smartbro/ mybro’s recent fair usage policy implementation? and your thoughts about it. thanks

    • not aware of any update on their fair usage. can you direct me to any source?

      • Danny

        Yung SmartBro namin bumagal na po dati kasi Unlimited, buong month/year mabilis sya tapos ngayon me limit na pala kaya pag na reach na yung limit na hindi nila sinsabi kung ilan GigaByte mag slowdown na sya. Maka connect pa naman pag na reach yung limit pero mabagal na.

        Tumawag ako sa SmartBro at yun nga sabi nila lumipat daw kami sa PLDT kung gusto ng unlimited internet.

        • ahh matagal na dapat yang throttle na yan when you reach a certain bandwidth consumption.

    heres the link for their updated FUP

    and heres a link for the recent uproar about this FUP:

    im sure you can find more in forums if you just search mybro FUP in google

    anyway some comments at forums raises the question why hasn’t smatbro / mybro disclosed any information about what is the limit before they throttle your speed. atleast customers has the right to know so we can manage our usage.

    and isn’t it because of the FUP there should be a Guaranteed speed like at least 50% of what’s advertised, isn’t that the purpose of the FUP?

    and what’s NTC doing about this.

    sorry if i have so many questions.. as smart didn’t even informed its customers about the recent changes.

    hope you could shed some light. im sure many of your readers are using mybro or smartbro as their isp like me. thanks a lot
