    1. Great event indeed but sadly, playing Pokemon Go has been frustrating to play here in Philippines due to frequent GPS, connection lag and network problem while you walk around trying to find and catch that rare Pokemon you just found. it is unbearable to experience multiple times of getting a network error at that moment you are trying to catch a Pokemon and by the time the connection resumes, you’ll be pissed to miss that opportunity while other people around you are celebrating. the last thing you’ll do was cuss over a poor network and service of the ISP.

      • I used to be on Sun post-paid and was experiencing the troubles you mentioned in your post. I then switched to Globe pre-paid and things went more swimmingly. I would only rarely experience GPS problems when I am inside (some) buildings.
