What’s Disappointing About MidPhase?

&#10006 Occasional reports of long service interruptions

There have been reports of long service interruptions lasting to more than 3 hours. This is a huge scenario for those who are in this for e-commerce, online banking and other serious web transactions. But for those who are still experimenting or are dealing with less urgent matters, then this should be ok since this is quite rare, anyway.

&#10006 Declining performance over the years

The sad thing is that MidPhase used to do so much better in the past, in terms of their network performance and quality of service.

The Bottom Line

MidPhase hasn’t completely lost its touch so if you value a good reputation with the good value for the money, then go ahead and sign up with MidPhase.
